Soft tissue fillers are usually identified in the skin using the conventional histopathologic examination. Ex vivo RCM has been used in one case and Raman spectroscopy (RS), which has been recently applied for the identification of skin foreign bodies, has never been employed for fillers. We report the use of both these new techniques, ex vivo RCM and RS, to confirm the diagnosis of adverse reaction to a soft tissue filler and to identify its composition.

Abstract

Soft tissue fillers are usually identified in the skin using the conventional histopathologic examination. Ex vivo RCM has been used in one case and Raman spectroscopy (RS), which has been recently applied for the identification of skin foreign bodies, has never been employed for fillers. We report the use of both these new techniques, ex vivo RCM and RS, to confirm the diagnosis of adverse reaction to a soft tissue filler and to identify its composition.
