Pleomorphic Ichthyosis: Proposed Name for a Heterogeneous Group of Congenital Ichthyoses with Phenotypic Shifting and Mild Residual Scaling
Anders Vahlquist
Congenital ichthyosis is often associated with typical neonatal phenotypes, "Collodion baby" and "Harlequin foetus", later transforming into severe lamellar or erythro­dermic ichthyosis. However, in a minority of cases the skin condition will improve spontaneously after birth, although slight scaling, xerosis, hypohidrosis and keratoderma usually persist. Some of these patients will eventually be ...

CLINICAL REPORT
The Overall Agreement of Proposed Definitions of Mucopurulent Cervicitis in Women at High Risk of Chlamydia Infection
Lars Falk
The overall agreement between different criteria for cervicitis in women infected with Chlamydia trachomatis and/or Mycoplasma genitalium, and in women who tested negative was examined. Women attending a clinic for sexually transmitted diseases were enrolled because of sexual partners’ suspected chlamydia infection. M. genitalium was tested in a sample of first-catch urine and an endocervical sp ...

Guidelines for the Laboratory Diagnosis of Mycoplasma genitalium Infections in East European Countries
Elena Shipitsyna, Alevtina Savicheva, Evgenij Sokolovskiy, Ronald C. Ballard, Marius Domeika, Magnus Unemo, Jörgen S. Jensen, EE SRH Network
The present guidelines aim to provide comprehensive information regarding laboratory diagnosis of Mycoplasma genitalium infections in East European countries. These guidelines are intended primarily for laboratory professionals testing specimens from patients at sexual health care clinics, but may also be useful for community-based screening programmes. Diagnosis of M. genitalium infection is perf ...

In Vitro Propagation and Dynamics of T cells from Skin Biopsies by Methods Using Interleukins-2 and -4 or Anti-CD3/CD28 Antibody-coated Microbeads
Hideo Hashizume, Anker Hansen, Lars K. Poulsen, Allan Randrup Thomsen, Masahiro Takigawa, Kristian Thestrup-Pedersen
In order to explore the mechanisms of inflammatory skin disorders, we established two methods of expanding skin-derived lymphocytes, one using high levels of interleukin (IL)-2 and IL-4 (method A) and the other using low levels of cytokines and anti-CD3/CD28 microbeads (method B). Both methods provide advantages for functional studies. With either of these two, we could obtain more than 107 cells/ ...

Routine Diagnostic Patch-testing with Formaldehyde 2.0% (0.6mg/cm2) may be an Advantage Compared to 1.0%
Inese Hauksson, Ann Pontén, Birgitta Gruvberger, Marléne Isaksson, Magnus Bruze
Our clinical experience has suggested that the presently recommended patch-test concentration (1.0%) for formaldehyde in the baseline series might be too low. Therefore, consecutively patch-tested dermatitis patients were tested simultaneously with formaldehyde 1.0% and 2.0% (w/v) in aqua. Formaldehyde 1.0% and 2.0% were applied with a micro-pipette (15 µl) to filter paper discs in Finn Chambers ...

A Comparative Study of Dyslipidaemia in Men and Woman with Androgenic Alopecia
Salvador Arias-Santiago, María Teresa Gutiérrez-Salmerón, Augustín Buendía-Eisman, María Sierra Girón-Prieto, Ramón Naranjo-Sintes
Several studies have analyzed the relationship between androgenetic alopecia and cardiovascular disease (mainly heart disease). However few studies have analyzed lipid values in men and women separately. This case-control study included 300 patients consecutively admitted to an outpatient clinic, 150 with early onset androgenetic alopecia (80 males and 70 females) and 150 controls (80 males and 70 ...

High Body Mass Index in Adolescent Girls Precedes Psoriasis Hospitalization
Lars Erik Bryld, Thorkild I.A. Sørensen, Klaus Kaae Andersen, Gregor B.E. Jemec, Jennifer L. Baker
Psoriasis is associated with being overweight, but the temporal relationship is not known. This historical cohort study tested whether severe psoriasis resulting in hospitalization in adulthood was preceded by excess increase in age-adjusted body mass index, a known risk factor in childhood for being overweight in adulthood. The study cohort was based on the Copenhagen School Health Records Regist ...

Not All Intravenous Immunoglobulin Preparations are Equally Well Tolerated
Laurence Feldmeyer, Christian Benden, Sarah R. Haile, Annette Boehler, Rudolf Speich, Lars E. French, Günther F.L. Hofbauer
Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is used for many indications beyond the original substitution in primary antibody deficiency. Whereas many reports mention adverse reactions, no comparative data exist concerning the incidence of side-effects among the different brands of IVIG. We describe here our experience with the use of different IVIG formulations and their tolerability in a select cohort of ...

Hydroa Vacciniforme with Mucosal Involvement and Recalcitrant Periodontitis and Multiple Virus Re-activators after Sun-exposure
Aya Nishizawa, Takahiro Satoh, Kaoru Takayama, Hiroo Yokozeki
An 8-year-old boy presented with hydroa vacciniforme with recurrent oral mucosal ulcers and treatment-resistant gingivitis/periodontitis. Symptoms of oral mucosal involvement and gingivitis/periodontitis mirrored the severity of the skin lesions in sun-exposed areas. Although Epstein-Barr virus was negative in the skin lesions, Epstein-Barr virus DNA was detected in the gingival lesions when skin ...

Extramammary Paget’s disease that occurs in non-apocrine-bearing regions is referred to as ectopic and has been rarely reported. A 62-year-old man presented with a slowly progressive, asymptomatic light-brown plaque on his back. Histopathological examination revealed the presence of large pale cells with prominent nuclei, which proliferated diffusely and focally in the epidermis. Immuno­histoch ...

Hepatocellular Carcinoma in Variegate Porphyria: A Serious Complication
Xiaoye Schneider-Yin, Anne-Moon van Tuyll van Serooskerken, Philip Went, Wojciech Tyblewski, Pamela Poblete-Gutiérrez, Eliabeth I. Minder, Jorge Frank
Variegate porphyria is an acute hepatic porphyria resulting from a partial deficiency of protoporphyrinogen oxidase, the penultimate enzyme in haem biosynthesis. Cutaneous symptoms and acute neurovisceral attacks are well-known clinical characteristics of the disease. Less studied, however, is the risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma, an aggressive type of liver cancer. We describe here two ...
