Mei-Ju Ko, Wan-Chuan Tsai, Yu-Sen Peng, Shih-Ping Hsu, Mei-Fen Pai, Ju-Yeh Yang, Hon-Yen Wu, Yen-Ling Chiu
Uraemic pruritus is one of the most bothersome symptoms in patients receiving haemodialysis. A total of 175 patients receiving maintenance haemodialysis, with 74 patients experiencing uraemic pruritus, were prospectively recruited to assess the influence of the phenotype of blood monocytes and various cytokines on uraemic pruritus. The phenotype of blood monocytes was determined by flow cytometry ...

Locoregional Treatments for Digital Ulcers in Systemic Sclerosis: A Systematic Review
Ingrid Costedoat, Maeva Masson, Thomas Barnetche, Pierre Duffau, Estibaliz Lazaro, Christophe Richez, Julien Seneschal, Marie-Elise Truchetet
The management of digital ulcers in systemic sclerosis is difficult. While the 2017 European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) guidelines clearly defined the use of systemic therapies for digital ulcers, little is known about the efficacy of locoregional treatments. The aim of this review is to systematically assess the spectrum of published locoregional therapies for digital ulcers. A total of 5 ...

The Burden of Autosomal Recessive Congenital Ichthyoses on Patients and their Families: An Italian Multicentre Study
Damiano Abeni, Roberta Rotunno, Andrea Diociaiuti, Simona Giancristoforo, Domenico Bonamonte, Angela Filoni, Carmelo Schepis, Maddalena Siragusa, Iria Neri, Annalucia Virdi, Daniele Castiglia, Giovanna Zambruno, Christine Bodemer, May El Hachem
Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyoses (ARCI) are characterized by generalized skin scaling, hyperkeratosis, erythroderma, and disabling features affecting the skin (palmoplantar keratoderma, fissures, pain, itch), eyes, ears, and joints. Disease severity and chronicity, patient disfigurement, and time and costs required for care impose a major burden on quality of life. This multicentre cross- ...

Patients with Darier Disease Exhibit Cognitive Impairment while Patients with Hailey-Hailey Disease Do Not: An Experimental, Matched Case-control Study
Philip Curman, Johanna Bern, Linnea Sand, Martin Cederlöf, Etty Bachar-Wikström, Jakob D. Wikström
Darier disease and Hailey-Hailey disease are severe, monogenetic dermatological disorders with mutations affecting all cells, making them liable to exhibit extra-dermal symptoms. The aim of this study is to assess broad cognitive function in individuals with these diseases, using an experimental, case-control set-up comparing cognition in patients with that in healthy controls matched for age, sex ...

Topical Application of Glycerol Increases Penetration Depth of Optical Coherence Tomography in Diagnosis of Basal Cell Carcinoma
Fieke Adan, Ellen M.M. Oyen, Robert J. Holtackers, Eva van Loo, Gert-Jan Dermont, Nicole W.J. Kelleners-Smeets, Patty J. Nelemans, Klara Mosterd
Optical coherence tomography is a non-invasive imaging technique that enables high-resolution in vivo imaging of skin. Although optical coherence tomography is promising for diagnosing basal cell carcinoma, its limited penetration depth may impede basal cell carcinoma subtyping. This study evaluated whether topical application of glycerol can increase penetration depth and improve the image qualit ...

Choice of Systemic Drugs for the Management of Moderate-to-severe Psoriasis: A Cross-country Comparison Based on National Health Insurance Data
Emilie Sbidian, Myriam Mezzarobba, Jason Shourick, Cécile Billionnet, Joël Coste, Alain Weill, Jérémie Rudant, Olivier Chosidow, Loes Hollestein, Tamar Nijsten
Current management of moderate-to-severe psoriasis may be heterogeneous between European countries, probably due to differences in the organization of care. The aim of this study was to compare the utilization of systemic treatments for psoriasis between 2 coun­tries. All adults with psoriasis who were registered in the French (SNDS) and the Dutch (VEKTIS) national health insurance databases betw ...

Visual Impact of Large and Giant Congenital Naevi: Comparison of Surgical Scars with Naevi Before Surgery
Francesca Sampogna, Melinda González, Mirella Pascini-Garrigós, Neus Calbet-Llopart, Jennifer L. Hay, Bruce S. Bauer, Susana Puig, Josep Malvehy, Ashfaq A. Marghoob, Cristina Carrera
Surgical attempts to remove large/giant congenital melanocytic naevi (LGCMN) are supported mainly by the theoretical improvement in patients’ self-image; however such surgery can result in unaesthetic scarring. We hypothesize that difference in appearance itself has an impact, and hence surgery cannot negate this impact. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to explore how LGCMN and scarring ...

Patient and Tumour Characteristics of Keratoacanthoma in a Large, Community-based Cohort Study from Queensland, Australia
Agnes Kolmodin, Nirmala P. Pandeya, Catherine M. Olsen, Jean Claude Dusingize, David C. Whiteman, Magdalena Claeson
Keratoacanthomas are common keratinocyte skin tumours. However, there is little community-based data published on the clinical features of keratoacanthoma. The aim of this study was to describe the patient and tumour characteristics of keratoacanthomas, as well as their treatment patterns. Data were obtained from the QSkin Sun and Health study, a prospective cohort of 40,438 randomly sampled and c ...
