Mortality in Patients with Bullous Pemphigoid: A Retrospective Cohort Study, Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
Khalaf Kridin, Wesal Shihade, Reuven Bergman
There is little consensus regarding mortality data in bullous pemphigoid (BP). The aim of this study was to evaluate mortality among a relatively large cohort of Israeli patients with BP and to perform a meta-analysis synthesizing existing data on 1-year mortality rates of patients with BP. This retrospective cohort study of 287 patients diagnosed with BP between 2000 and 2015 compared the mortali ...

Direct Immunofluorescence of Mechanobullous Epidermolysis Bullosa Acquisita, Porphyria Cutanea Tarda and Pseudoporphyria
Heleen J. de Groot, Marcel F. Jonkman, Hendri H. Pas, Gilles F.H. Diercks
Mechanobullous epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (mEBA) can have a clinical presentation that is very similar to other blistering diseases, such as porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) and pseudoporphyria. Direct immunofluorescence is an important feature in the diagnosis of mEBA, although features that overlap with PCT and pseudoporphyria have been reported. This retrospective observational study investig ...

Rosacea and Demodicosis: Little-known Diagnostic Signs and Symptoms
Fabienne M.N. Forton, Viviane De Maertelaer
Papulopustular rosacea and demodicosis are characterized by non-specific symptoms, which can make clinical diagnosis difficult. This retrospective study of 844 patients assessed the diagnostic importance of clinical signs and symptoms that are poorly recognized as being associated with these conditions. In addition to well-known signs (vascular signs (present in 80% of patients), papules (39%), pu ...

Expression of n-MYC, NAMPT and SIRT1 in Basal Cell Carcinomas and their Cells of Origin
Lydia Brandl, Daniela Hartmann, Thomas Kirchner, Antje Menssen
Deregulated Hedgehog signalling is a driver of basal cell carcinomas. One effector of the Hedgehog pathway is n-MYC. c/n-MYC proteins, NAMPT and DBC1 are linked to SIRT1 in a positive feedback loop that may contribute to tumorigenesis of basal cell carcinoma. In 5 basal cell carcinoma types immunohistochemistry revealed n-MYC, NAMPT and SIRT1 expression. DBC1 was homogenously expressed in all epit ...

Although desmoplasia has been associated with poor prognoses in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, little attention has been paid to the patterns of fibrosis. This study aimed to examine the different stromal fibrotic patterns as markers of metastatic risk. We performed a multicenter retrospective study that included 102 cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (52 non-metastatic and 50 metastatic carci ...

Role of the Gut Microbiota in Atopic Dermatitis: A Systematic Review
Elisabeth B.M. Petersen, Lone Skov, Jacob P. Thyssen, Peter Jensen
The immune mechanisms involved in atopic dermatitis (AD) are complex and little is known about the possible role of the gut microbiota in the aetiopathogenesis of AD. A systematic review of the literature was performed according to PRISMA guidelines, and included 44 of 2,199 studies (26 observational and 18 interventional studies). Detection of gut microbiota was performed by either 16s rRNA PCR, ...

Solam Lee, Young Bin Lee, Sung Jay Choe, Won-Soo Lee
Treatment of male androgenetic alopecia with 5α-reductase inhibitors is efficacious. However, the risk of adverse sexual effects remains controversial. This systematic review and meta-analysis investigated the risk of adverse sexual effects due to treatment of androgenetic alopecia in male patients with finasteride, 1 mg/day, or dutasteride, 0.5 mg/day. Fifteen randomized double-blinded placebo-c ...

Coeliac disease is an immune-mediated enteropathy driven by gluten, which can be associated with dermatitis herpetiformis. The presence of granular IgA deposits, detected by direct immunofluorescence, is the hallmark of dermatitis herpetiformis; nevertheless, IgA deposits have also been demonstrated in healthy skin of patients with coeliac disease. The main objective of this study was to investiga ...

Carvone Contact Allergy in Southern Sweden: A 21-year Retrospective Study
Liv Kroona, Marléne Isaksson, Camilla Ahlgren, Jakob Dahlin, Magnus Bruze, Gunnar Warfvinge
Carvone (l-carvone), a mint flavour in spearmint oil, is considered a mild skin sensitizer. Carvone-sensitization may be linked to oral/perioral signs and oral lichen planus, but studies are sparse. The prevalence of patch test reactions to carvone and relevant findings from the positive group were investigated. Records for patch-tested patients at the Malmö clinic, for the period 1996 to 2016, w ...

Paraproteinaemia in Primary Cutaneous Marginal Zone Lymphoma
Verena G. Frings, Kristina Röding, Alexander Strate, Andreas Rosenwald, Sabine Roth, Hermann Kneitz, Matthias Goebeler, Eva Geissinger, Marion Wobser
Primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphomas (PCMZL) frequently exhibit lymphoplasmacytoid/plasmacytic differentiation, implying the capacity to produce monoclonal immunoglobulins. As these paraproteins are secreted, and thus are measurable in blood and urine, they may correlate with disease burden and serve as tumour markers reflecting therapeutic response. This study retrospectively analysed the re ...

Treatment of actinic keratosis with 3% diclofenac sodium w/w in hyaluronic acid is associated with a concomitant improvement in signs of photodamaged skin. However this effect has not yet been examined in depth. Twenty patients with actinic keratosis and signs of photodamaged skin were studied. They received treatment with diclofenac sodium w/w in hyaluronic acid for 2 months. Clinical and reflect ...

Melanogenesis Inhibitors
Sulekha Kumari, Steven Tien Guan Thng, Navin Kumar Verma, Hemant K. Gautam
Abnormally high production of melanin or melanogenesis in skin melanocytes results in hyperpigmentation disorders, such as melasma, senile lentigines or freckles. These hyperpigmentary skin disorders can significantly impact an individual’s appearance, and may cause emotional and psychological distress and reduced quality of life. A large number of melanogenesis inhibitors have been developed, b ...

Antioxidative Phytochemicals Accelerate Epidermal Terminal Differentiation via the AHR-OVOL1 Pathway: Implications for Atopic Dermatitis
Masutaka Furue, Akiko Hashimoto-Hachiya, Gaku Tsuji
Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) is a chemical sensor that is expressed abundantly in epidermal keratinocytes. Oxidative AHR ligands induce the production of reactive oxygen species. However, antioxidant AHR ligands inhibit reactive oxygen species generation via activation of nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor-2, which is a master switch for antioxidative signalling. In addition, AHR signall ...

Nocebo Effects and Scratching Behaviour on Itch
Danielle J.P. Bartels, Antoinette I.M. van Laarhoven, Peter C.M. van de Kerkhof, Andrea W.M. Evers
Nocebo effects, i.e. reduced treatment effects due to patients’ negative expectations, play a role in itch. Recent studies have shown that nocebo effects can be induced experimentally on itch and also be minimized and even turned into the opposite direction, i.e. placebo effects. It is not known whether these effects generalize to itch-associated scratching behaviour. The aim of this study was t ...
