    Drug-induced Linear IgA Bullous Dermatosis: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
    Judith Lammer, Rüdiger Hein, Sophie Roenneberg, Tilo Biedermann, Thomas Volz
    Linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD) is a rare subepidermal autoimmune blistering disease which is idiopathic in most cases, although there is a subset of patients with LABD found to be drug-induced. An overview on pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of drug-induced LABD is given accompanied by presenting the clinical course of a 77-year-old male patient with LABD induced by vancomycin. A comprehensive literature search revealed a multitude of different drugs having been described to elicit linear IgA dermatosis with vancomycin being the most frequent one.

    Nail Psoriasis: An Updated Review and Expert Opinion on Available Treatments, Including Biologics
    Federico Bardazzi, Michela Starace, Francesca Bruni, Michela Magnano, Bianca Maria Piraccini, Aurora Alessandrini
    Nail psoriasis affects 50–79% of patients with skin psoriasis and up to 80% of patients with psoriatic arthritis, and can also represent a negative prognostic factor in individuals with plaque psoriasis. Nail psoriasis is often not recognized and difficult to treat with topical therapies alone, and relapse is common. The treatment of nail psoriasis is not standardized, ranging from topical therapy to systemic therapy, according to the severity and extension of the disease. Biologic therapies have also been introduced as a treatment option for nail psoriasis. This review analysed the different therapeutic options for nail psoriasis, focusing on new treatments that have shown promising results in this field.
