A Mimic of Self?Healing Juvenile Cutaneous Mucinosis?

Abstract A 14?year?old boy presented with a chronic history of atypical papular mucinosis consisting of multiple subcutaneous nodules and confluent papular skin lesions. He initially presented at age 2 years with the rapid onset of numerous subcutaneous nodular lesions that completely resolved over a period of years. Clinical and histologic evidence, together with his clinical course, were suggestive of self?healing juvenile cutaneous mucinosis (SHJCM), but a few years later, during childhood, he experienced a recurrence of the subcutaneous nodules involving the limbs, trunk, and face, in addition to new findings of multiple flesh?colored papules coalescing into plaques on his neck and back. Although his early childhood course and histologic picture were suggestive of SHJCM, the pr...

Market Trends in Baby Skin Care Products and Implications for Clinical Practice

Abstract Although the U.S. pediatric skin care market is a $1.7 billion industry, little is known regarding the usage pattern of skin care products in very young children. We have begun to recognize that common over?the?counter skin care products may have positive or negative effects on skin barrier function. Thus, knowing what and how skin care products are used early in life is important. The goal of the current study was to better understand skin care product use in the United States using market research data. We found that the prevalence of use was greater than 50% for all skin care product categories and age groups. Premoistened cleansing wipes and cloths were the most frequently used product, followed by baby oil and lotion and body and baby powder. Baby bath and shampoo produc...

Split Median Raphe: Case Series and Brief Literature Review

We describe three cases of split median raphe of the penis (SMR) from our hospital newborn records from 2004 to 2013. One case was associated with median raphe cyst, one with skin hypochromia, and one with a scar?like aspect of the region of interest. SMR is thought to be the result of defective fusion of ectodermal tissue in the urethra and scrotum area or of defective growth of the perineal mesoderm around the urethra during gestation. Although SMR associated with other major penile congenital defects (epispadias, hypospadias, penile torsion, bifid scrotum, chordee) is common, isolated SMR is probably an underdiagnosed (although not rare) malformative condition. Recognizing SMR in a newborn may be of educational value to neonatologists because it leads to the search for and exclusion o...

Prevalence and Characterization of Pruritus in Epidermolysis Bullosa

The objective of the current study was to quantitatively identify and to characterize pruritus that EB patients experience using a comprehensive online questionnaire. A questionnaire was developed to evaluate pruritus in all ages and all types of EB. Questions that characterize pruritus were included and factors that aggravate symptoms were investigated. Patients from seven North American EB centers were invited to participate. One hundred forty?six of 216 questionnaires were completed (response rate 68%; 73 male, 73 female; median age 20.0 years). Using a 5?point Likert scale (1 = never, 2 = rarely, 3 = sometimes, 4 = often, 5 = always), itchiness was the most bothersome EB complication (mean 3.3). The average daily frequency of pruritus increased with self?reported EB sev...

From experimental design to functional gene networks: DNA microarray contribution to skin ageing research

Résumé Il ne fait aucun doute que la technologie de puces à ADN a contribué, via l'identification de centaines de gènes, à accroître nos connaissances dans de nombreux processus, incluant le vieillissement. Cependant, intégrer des gènes dans des réseaux fonctionnels, plutôt que de définir des termes décrivant des caractéristiques génériques, reste un défi important. La fonction d'un gène donné qui peut varier selon le contexte et les mécanismes de rétrocontrôle complexifient grandement l'interprétation des données de puces. De plus, il est difficile de déterminer si les modifications d'expression des gènes sont le résultat ou la cause d'une pathologie ou d'un évènement physiologique tel que le vieillissement.

Case series of volar juvenile xanthogranuloma: Clinical observation of a peripheral rim of hyperkeratosis

We report two patients with unusual presentations of solitary juvenile xanthogranuloma on the palm or sole. Both had lesions lacking the classic yellowish color and demonstrating a well?defined, peripheral hyperkeratotic rim. Histopathological evaluation revealed prominent orthokeratosis corresponding to the rim. Additional histological features, including dermal histiocytes and Touton giant cells, were consistent with the diagnosis of juvenile xanthogranuloma. Given the unusual locations and colors of the lesions, we conclude that histopathological evaluation is central to diagnosing volar juvenile xanthogranuloma. We additionally suggest that juvenile xanthogranuloma should be included in the differential diagnoses of volar lesions displaying a peripheral hyperkeratotic rim. (Source: T...

Late?onset anaphylactic reactions following i.v. cyclophosphamide pulse in a patient with systemic sclerosis and systemic lupus erythematosus overlap syndrome

Abstract Late?onset anaphylactic reaction is a rare adverse effect of i.v. cyclophosphamide pulse (IVCY), which is caused by cyclophosphamide metabolites. We herein report a case of scleroderma and lupus overlap syndrome who developed anaphylactic reactions 3 h to 4 days after IVCY. Long time lapses between IVCY and appearance of symptoms are compatible with type I hypersensitivity to cyclophosphamide metabolites, appearing as late?onset anaphylactic reaction. Albeit unusual, this is an important anaphylactic reaction to be aware of following IVCY. (Source: The Journal of Dermatology)

An imported case of cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania (Leishmania) donovani in Japan

Abstract Leishmaniasis is a major world health problem, and 12 million people are estimated to be infected in 88 countries. There have been few reports of leishmaniasis in Japan and all were of foreign origin; therefore diagnosis is difficult for Japanese physicians. There are 21 different pathogenic Leishmania species, and identification is obtained by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Here we report an imported case of leishmaniasis by Leishmania (Leishmania) donovani infection from Sri Lanka. L. (L.) donovani usually causes visceral leishmaniasis, but in this case, the patient manifested cutaneous leishmaniasis. The identification of Leishmania species by PCR and investigation of the patient's background such as nationality and disease endemicity are important for diagnosis and treatme...

Overexpression of miR?200b inhibits the cell proliferation and promotes apoptosis of human hypertrophic scar fibroblasts in vitro

In this study, nine hypertrophic scar samples and the matched normal skin tissues were used to perform a miRNA microarray. The results of miRNA array showed that miR?200b was downregulated by more than 2?fold, validated by qPCR in hypertrophic scar tissues and human hypertrophic scar fibroblasts, suggesting that there was an important correlation between miR?200b and hypertrophic scarring. We also found that miR?200b affected hypertrophic scarring through regulating the cell proliferation and apoptosis of human hypertrophic scar fibroblasts by affecting the collagen I and III synthesis, fibronectin expression and TGF??1/??SMA signaling. Thus, our study provides evidence to support that miR?200b may be a useful target for hypertrophic scarring management. (Source: The Journa...

High Matrix Metalloproteinase Levels Are Associated With Dermal Graft Failure in Diabetic Foot Ulcers

The aim of our study is to analyze factors, including matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) levels, that could influence the integration of dermal grafts in diabetic foot ulcers. From September 2012 to September 2013, 35 diabetic patients with IIA lesion (Texas Wound Classification) and an extensive foot tissue loss were considered suitable for dermal graft. Before the enrollment we ensured the best local conditions: adequate blood supply, control of infection, and offloading. The MMP level of each lesion was evaluated blindly before the application of dermal substitutes. At 1-month follow-up, we analyzed the correlation between clinical patient characteristics, local wound features including MMP levels, dermal substitute applied, and the outcome expressed in terms of dermal graft integration.

Adipose mesenchymal stem/stromal cells and peripheral blood endothelial colony forming cells for tissue engineering

Introduction and aims: The goal for the treatment of full-thickness skin loss remains to produce a tissue-engineered substrate that replicates the epidermal/dermal in vivo niches to fulfil aesthetic and functional demands. A novel way to do this would be pre-vascularisation of dermal substitutes resulting in earlier inosculation. This would increase the trajectory of wound healing and improve the final aesthetic result. (Source: Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery)

Design of a ProDer f 1 vaccine delivered by the MHC class II pathway of antigen presentation and analysis of the effectiveness for specific immunotherapy.

Authors: Liu Z, Jiang Y, Li C Abstract Dermatophagoides farinae (Der f 1) is one of leading cause for allergic asthma, and allergen-specific immunotherapy (SIT) is currently recognized as the only etiological therapy to ameliorate asthmatic symptom. The current study was designed on the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II pathway, invariant chain (Ii)-segment hybrids as vaccine basis to explore the efficacy of Der f 1 hybrid vaccine by virtue of Ii as carrier in enhancing the protective immune response to asthma. Initially, we engineered a fused molecule, DCP-IhC-ProDer f 1, to deliver ProDer f 1 antigen via specific dendritic cell-targeting peptides to dendritic cells (DCs). Then the DCP-IhC-ProDer f 1 was immunized to the asthmatic models of murine induced by ProDer f...

Walleye Sander vitreus (Mitchill) are relatively resistant to experimental infection with VHSV IVb and extant walleye strains vary in susceptibility

Abstract Compared to fathead minnow, walleye demonstrate low susceptibility to experimental infection with VHSV IVb, regardless of route of exposure or water temperature at time of infection. In triplicate and duplicate groups, walleye were intraperitoneally (i.p.) injected (102?108 pfu/fish) or waterborne?exposed (w; 1.4 × 107 pfu mL?1) with VHSV IVb. High cumulative mortality (64?100%) and severe gross lesions associated with VHSV IVb infection were evident only in fish i.p. injected with 108 pfu at 12 °C. These fish had multifocal necrosis of several tissues including the gill and heart. There was no difference in mortality between walleye infected (w or i.p.) at 12 °C (spring stocking) compared with a declining temperature profile from 18 to 12 °C (fall stocking). ...

Novel mechanisms and signaling pathways of esophageal ulcer healing: the role of prostaglandin EP2 receptors, cAMP, and pCREB

Clinical studies indicate that prostaglandins of E class (PGEs) may promote healing of tissue injury e.g., gastroduodenal and dermal ulcers. However, the precise roles of PGEs, their E-prostanoid (EP) receptors, signaling pathways including cAMP and cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB), and their relation to VEGF and angiogenesis in the tissue injury healing process remain unknown, forming the rationale for this study. Using an esophageal ulcer model in rats, we demonstrated that esophageal mucosa expresses predominantly EP2 receptors and that esophageal ulceration triggers an increase in expression of the EP2 receptor, activation of CREB (the downstream target of the cAMP signaling), and enhanced VEGF gene expression. Treatment of rats with misoprostol, a PGE1 analog capable of ac...

Stimulatory effect of fibroblast?derived prostaglandin E2 on keratinocyte stratification in the skin equivalent

In this study, we examined a double paracrine mechanism between keratinocytes and fibroblasts through interleukin?1 (IL?1) and an IL?1?induced inflammatory mediator prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) using the skin equivalent. The epidermal layer of the skin equivalent expressed high levels of IL?1? mRNA (IL1A mRNA) and relatively low levels of IL?1? mRNA (IL1B mRNA). IL1A mRNA was not detected in fibroblasts. Fibroblasts also expressed low, but not negligible levels of IL1B mRNA only in the presence of keratinocytes. Expression of prostaglandin?endoperoxide synthase 2 mRNA (PTGS2 mRNA) and production of PGE2 in three?dimensionally cultured fibroblasts were noticeably stimulated by co?culture with keratinocytes, whereas PTGS2 mRNA expression in the epidermal layer was very low.

Epidermal growth factor (EGF) and ultraviolet radiation (UVR) enhance epidermal expression of Slug and Snail, zinc finger transcription factors that drive epithelial-mesenchymal transition-like processes in adult keratinocytes. Because UVR is known to activate the EGF receptor (EGFR), we examined the role of the EGFR in UVR induction of Snail and Slug. In cultured human keratinocytes, both UVR and EGF activated the EGFR, and UVR or EGF plus UVR induced Snail and Slug. Inhibiting the kinase activity of the EGFR abrogated these effects.

The plot thickens while the scope broadens: A holistic view on IL?17 in psoriasis and other inflammatory disorders

Few areas in skin disease research and dermatological drug development can rival the breathtaking evolution of our knowledge on psoriasis pathophysiology and the advent of novel pathogenesis?oriented therapies against this common disorder (s1, s2). Undoubtedly, one of the most exciting stories that unfolded during the last decade is that of T helper (Th) 17 cells (1), a subset of T cells that has been named for its production of IL?17 and which is distinct from the ?classical? Th1 cells. (Source: Experimental Dermatology)

Novel Missense Mutations of in Two Chinese Families with Dyschromatosis Universalis Hereditaria

Dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria (DUH) is a very rare genodermatosis characterized by generalized hypopigmented and hyperpigmented macules of varying sizes and shapes occurring over almost all the body. It was first described in 1933 by Ichikawa and Higari. It is most commonly reported in Japan [1], but has also been reported in other parts of Asia, Europe, America, and Africa. The skin lesions in DUH show no seasonal change or spontaneous regression with age [2]. Systemic abnormalities, including short stature, high-frequency deafness, erythrocyte, platelet and tryptophan metabolism abnormalities, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, bilateral glaucoma and unilateral cataract, photosensitivity along with neurosensory hearing defects, and grand-mal seizures, are rare [3].

Lactic acid sting test does not differentiate between facial and generalized skin functional impairment in sensitive skin in atopic dermatitis and rosacea

The ?sensitive skin? (SeSk) concept, i.e. the propensity to develop abnormal SeSk reactions such as stinging, prickling, burning, itching and pain to cosmetics and exogenous environmental factors [1], has gained broad attention in the scientific community. SeSk syndrome is related to abnormal sensory reactions. In addition, SeSk is a common symptom in skin diseases like atopic dermatitis (AD), rosacea, perioral dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and psoriasis. (Source: Journal of Dermatological Science)

Prenatal breastfeeding counseling --- pregnancy risk assessment monitoring system, United States, 2010.

Authors: Lind JN, Ahluwalia IB, Perrine CG, Li R, Harrison L, Grummer-Strawn LM Abstract Breastfeeding is a highly effective preventive measure a mother can take after birth to protect the health of her infant, as well as her own. Immunologic and antiinflammatory properties of breast milk protect against numerous illnesses and diseases in children. Benefits of breastfeeding for infants include a lower risk for ear infections, atopic dermatitis, lower respiratory tract infections, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in preterm infants, type 2 diabetes, asthma, and childhood obesity. For mothers, benefits of breastfeeding include a lower risk for breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Increasing rates of breastfeeding and therefore its health benefits migh...

Up?Regulation of Cutaneous ?1?Adrenoceptors in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type I

DiscussionEpidermal cells influence nociception by releasing ligands that act on sensory nerve fibers. Moreover, an increased expression of ?1?adrenoceptors on nociceptive afferents has been shown to aggravate neuropathic pain. Thus, the heightened expression of ?1?adrenoceptors in dermal nerves and epidermal cells might augment pain and neuroinflammatory disturbances after tissue injury in patients with CRPS type I.

Fifteen minutes consultation: a structured approach to the child with a white red reflex

The parents of a 2 year old boy notice a difference in appearance of his two eyes in a recent flash photograph, and they alert their paediatrician. Introduction A white red reflex is ‘leukocoria’—‘leukos’ Greek for white and ‘core’ for pupil. Evaluation of the red reflex is a useful screening test that should not be missed from the routine paediatric examination. It is quick, non-invasive and only needs a bright direct ophthalmoscope. An asymmetrical red reflex—with abnormal colour, size, shape or positioning—can indicate need for urgent ophthalmology referral. In children, leukocoria can represent a wide range of underlying pathologies, intraocular and systemic. Having the confidence to conduct a thorough history and examination i...

Cytotoxic granules in distinct subsets of cutaneous lupus erythematosus

Summary In cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE), the pathogenetic role of cytotoxic granules has been demonstrated in the subacute and discoid subtypes, which show interface dermatitis, but little is known about tumid (T)CLE, which does not show this interface dermatitis, and evolves with minimal epidermal changes. We studied cytotoxic T lymphocytes and cytotoxic granules in discoid (n = 21), subacute (n = 17), and tumid (n = 21) CLE samples. Skin sections were immunohistochemically stained for CD8, CD56, perforin, granzyme A, granzyme B, and granulysin. Inflammatory cells containing the four subtypes of cytotoxic granules were found in all the three CLE forms; however, only the TCLE group showed a positive correlation between the density of CD8+ cells and each subtype of cytotoxic gr...

Tissue tropism, pathology and pathogenesis of enterovirus infection

Abstract Enteroviruses are very common and cause infections with a diverse array of clinical features. Enteroviruses are most frequently considered by practicing pathologists in cases of aseptic meningitis, encephalitis, myocarditis, and disseminated infections in neonates and infants. Congenital infections have been reported, and transplacental transmission is thought to occur. Although skin biopsies during hand foot and mouth disease are infrequently obtained, characteristic dermatopathological findings can be seen. Enteroviruses have been implicated in lower respiratory tract infections. This review will highlight histopathological features of enterovirus infection and discuss diagnostic modalities for formalin?fixed paraffin?embedded tissues and their associated pitfalls.

Melanoma?derived IL?1 converts vascular endothelium to a proinflammatory and procoagulatory phenotype via NF?B activation

In this study, we analysed the ability of human melanoma cell lines to activate endothelial cells (ECs) in vitro. Some melanoma cells, that is, MV3, were shown to trigger an prompt calcium?flux?dependent, procoagulatory endothelial response that was accompanied by luminal release of ultra?large von Willebrand factor (ULVWF) fibres that were immobilized to the endothelial surface layer. In contrast to MV3?derived supernatant, prolonged treatment of ECs with WM9?derived supernatant mediated a pronounced activation of nuclear factor kappa B (NF?B). NF?B activation in ECs was dependent on both IL?1? and IL?1? secreted from melanoma cells. Melanoma?derived IL?1 mediated an upregulation of proinflammatory cytokines IL?6 and IL?8, the intercellular adhesion molecule?1 ...

Infectious eczematoid dermatitis: a comprehensive review

Abstract Infectious eczematoid dermatitis (IED) is characterized by an acute eczematous eruption triggered by purulent discharge from a primary infected site. Alcohol consumption, cigarette smoking and occupations with higher incidences of contact dermatitis portend increased risk for IED. Staphylococcus aureus is the most commonly cultured microbe from affected skin, with Streptococcus species the second most. Patients are first evident with peripherally spreading vesicles and pustules radiating from an infected site. Older areas of involvement become crusty, scaly and erythematous. Diagnosis is clinical. Other eczematous rashes, including autoeczemitization and contact dermatitis, should be on the differential diagnosis list. The treatment centres on topical antibiotics and soaks. Progno...

Expression of platelet?derived growth factor receptor ? is maintained by Prox1 in lymphatic endothelial cells and is required for tumor lymphangiogenesis

The lymphatic system plays important roles not only in the physiological processes, such as maintenance of tissue fluid homeostasis, but also in pathological processes including the lymph node metastasis of tumor cells. Therefore, understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying lymphatic vessel formation is crucial. Previous studies have shown that proliferation and migration of lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs) are activated by multiple types of signals mediated by tyrosine kinase receptors such as vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR) 3. Although signals mediated by platelet?derived growth factor receptor ? (PDGFR?) have been implicated in lymphangiogenesis, the mechanisms explaining how PDGFR? expression is maintained in LECs remain to be fully elucidated. In th...

Recurrent dusky lesions: would you recognise this dermatosis?

A 10-year-old otherwise healthy boy had a 4-day history of a dusky-red plaque on his right thigh, measuring 10x6 cm, with an erythematous periphery. Later, bullae developed on top of the plaque, and other lesions appeared on the trunk, limbs and penis (figure 1). Previously he had manifested an identical plaque in the same area (right thigh), with residual hyperpigmentation, that lasted 3 weeks. Due to the appearance of the skin lesion and recurrence in the same location, parents were questioned about any medications previously used and disclosed that it had started 48 h after the ingestion of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID), in both episodes, confirming therefore the diagnosis of fixed drug eruption (FDE). FDE is a benign reaction triggered by exposure to drugs,1 ...
