Clinicopathological, Genetic and Survival Advantages of Naevus-associated Melanomas: A Cohort Study
Xavier Bosch-Amate, Sebastian Podlipnik, Constanza Riquelme-McLoughlin, Cristina Carrera, Alicia Barreiro-Capurro, Adriana García-Herrera, Llucia Alós, Josep Malvehy, Susana Puig
Several studies have suggested that naevus-associated melanomas differ from de novo melanomas, being thinner and with less ulceration; however, the prognostic implication is unclear. The objective of this study was to describe clinicopathological, genetic and survival characteristics of de novo and naevus-associated melanomas in a cohort of primary invasive cutaneous melanomas over a 20-year perio ...

Hypertrophic Scar Outcomes in Fractional Laser Monotherapy Versus Fractional Laser-Assisted Topical Corticosteroid Delivery: A Randomized Clinical Trial
Woraphong Manuskiatti, Arisa Kaewkes, Chadakan Yan, Janice Natasha Ng, Joshua Zev Glahn, Rungsima Wanitphakdeedecha
Topical corticosteroid delivery following fractional laser treatment is an effective means of treating hypertrophic scars. However, the relative efficacy of adjuvant corticosteroid treatment vs fractional laser mono­therapy alone is unclear. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of fractional laser-assisted topical corticosteroid delivery with fractional laser monotherapy i ...

Clinical Suspicion Sensitivity of Nodular and Superficial Spreading Melanoma
Trude E. Robsahm, Per Helsing, Henrik L. Svendsen, Marit B. Veierød
In Norway, nodular melanoma is the most fatal melanoma subtype and superficial spreading melanoma the most common, which results in diagnostic challenges. The aim of this study was to assess the clinical suspicion sensitivity of nodular melanoma and superficial spreading melanoma, by diagnosing physician, using randomly selected 100 nodular melanomas and 100 superficial spreading melanomas from th ...

Maike M. Holtsche, Nina van Beek, Takashi Hashimoto, Giovanni Di Zenzo, Detlef Zillikens, Catherine Prost-Squarcioni, Matthias Titeux, Alain Hovnanian, Enno Schmidt, Stephanie Goletz
Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita is a pemphigoid disease characterized by autoantibodies against type VII collagen. This study compared the sensitivity and specificity of 6 diagnostic assays: type VII collagen non-collagenous domains enzyme-linked immunoassay (NC1/2 ELISA) (MBL, Nagoya, Japan); type VII collagen NC1 ELISA (Euroimmun, Lübeck, Germany); indirect immunofluorescence (IF) microscopy te ...

Role of B-cells in Mycosis Fungoides
Pia Rude Nielsen, Jens Ole Eriksen, Mia Dahl Sørensen, Ulrike Wehkamp, Lise M. Lindahl, Michael Bzorek, Lars Iversen, Anders Woetman, Niels Ødum, Thomas Litman, Lise Mette Rahbek Gjerdrum
Mycosis fungoides is the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. The inflammatory micro­environment in mycosis fungoides is complex. There is accumulating evidence that the neoplastic T-cells take control of the microenvironment and thereby promote their own expansion by suppressing cellular immunity. B-cells have proved to be upregulated in large-cell transformed mycosis fungoides, and co ...

Pyoderma Gangrenosum: A Retrospective Study of Clinical Charac­teristics, Comorbidities, Response to Treatment and Mortality Related to Prednisone Dose
Louise Schøsler, Karsten Fogh, Rikke Bech
Pyoderma gangrenosum is an uncommon ulcerative neutrophilic dermatosis. Clinical presentation, location and associated diseases are diverse. Treatment of pyoderma gangrenosum includes treating the underlying comorbidity supplemented with topical and/or systemic agents. However, treatment is often challenging. The aim of this study was to explore the diversity of pyoderma gangrenosum and its treatm ...

Is Darier Disease a Multi-organ Condition?
Etty Bachar-Wikström, Jakob D. Wikström
Darier disease is a severe, rare autosomal dominant inherited skin condition caused by mutations in the ATP2A2 gene encoding sarcoendoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase isoform 2 in the endoplasmic reticulum. Since sarcoendoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase isoform 2 is expressed in most tissues, and intracellular calcium homeostasis is of fundamental importance, it is conceivable that other organs besides ...

Immunomodulator Galectin-9 is Increased in Blood and Skin of Patients with Bullous Pemphigoid
Jasper Pruessmann, Wiebke Pruessmann, Maike M. Holtsche, Beke Linnemann, Christoph M. Hammers, Nina van Beek, Detlef Zillikens, Enno Schmidt, Christian D. Sadik
Massive recruitment of eosinophils into the dermis is a hallmark of bullous pemphigoid pathogenesis. Identifying the chemoattractant(s) guiding eosinophils into the skin in bullous pemphigoid is a prerequisite to thera­peutic targeting of eosinophil recruitment. Galectin -9 is a potent chemoattractant for eosinophils, but its potential role in bullous pemphigoid is unknown. The aim of this study ...

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 betwee ...

Diagnostic Value and Practicability of Serration Pattern Analysis by Direct Immunofluorescence Microscopy in Pemphigoid Diseases
Maike M. Holtsche, Nina van Beek, Axel Künstner, Hauke Busch, Detlef Zillikens, Enno Schmidt
In pemphigoid diseases, direct immunofluorescence can be used to differentiate 2 patterns of antibody deposition at the dermal–epidermal junction; u- and n-serrated pattern. The u-serrated pattern is found in epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, and n-serrated pattern in all other pemphigoid diseases. To determine the detection frequency of these serrated patterns and the optimal thickness of biopsy ...
