Cutaneous Manifestations of Nutritional Excess: Pathophysiologic Effects of Hyperglycemia and Hyperinsulinemia on the Skin.

Cutis 2021 Feb;107(2):74-78

Mr. Svoboda is from the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, Roanoke. Dr. Shields is from the Department of Dermatology, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison.

Hyperglycemia is defined by excess blood glucose and, when persistent, may lead to prediabetic and diabetic states. Insulin is a hormone produced by the beta cells of the pancreas in response to elevated blood glucose. Dysregulated insulin secretion or clearance results in hyperinsulinemia, which also is closely associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and metabolic disturbances. Read More

Cutaneous Paraneoplastic Syndromes with Nail Involvement.

Dermatol Clin 2021 Apr 12;39(2):175-182. Epub 2021 Feb 12.

Nail Disease Centre, Rue des Serbes 42, Cannes 06400, France.

The cutaneous paraneoplastic syndromes are rare and intrinsically devoid of any neoplastic nature. The manifestations on the skin and the nails are due to various mechanisms caused by the tumor, either due to production of bioactive substances or in response to it. These disorders evolve in parallel to the malignancy, in that, they regress when the tumor is removed and reappear in the case of tumor recurrence. Read More

Malignant Acanthosis Nigricans with Recurrent Bladder Cancer: A Case Report and Review of Literature.

Onco Targets Ther 2021 10;14:951-957. Epub 2021 Feb 10.

Department of Dermatology, The Second Hospital of Dalian Medical University, Dalian, Liaoning, 116027, People's Republic of China.

Acanthosis nigricans (AN) is a rare cutaneous condition that may be a manifestation of certain endocrinological or autoimmune diseases, as well as a potential marker for underlying undiagnosed cancer. AN is classified as either benign or malignant based on its clinical associations. Malignant acanthosis nigricans (MAN), which tends to be extensive and develops rapidly, is considered to be a paraneoplastic syndrome associated with advanced cancer, commonly accompanied by intra-abdominal malignancies.

An adolescent girl with coexisting ovarian mature cystic teratoma and HAIR-AN syndrome, an extreme subtype of polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2021 Feb 17;2021. Epub 2021 Feb 17.

Endocrinology Unit, Department of Internal Medicine, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.

Summary: Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is associated with menstrual irregularities, ovulatory dysfunction, hirsutism, insulin resistance, obesity and metabolic syndrome but is rarely associated with severe hyperandrogenaemia and virilisation resulting in male pattern baldness and clitoromegaly. Total serum testosterone greater than twice the upper limit of the reference range or free androgen index of over five-fold elevated suggests a diagnosis other than PCOS. We reported a case of a 15 years old obese girl presented with secondary amenorrhoea, virilising signs: frontal baldness, clitoromegaly and prominent signs of insulin resistance and marked acanthosis nigricans.

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, Rajavithi Hospital, College of Medicine, Rangsit University, Bangkok, Thailand.

Acanthosis nigricans with tripe palms is one of the skin manifestations of systemic conditions, as well as internal malignancy. There have been reports of this paraneoplastic condition's association with orocutaneous papillomatosis, but investigations into its relationship with diffuse esophageal papillomatosis are scarce.

A longitudinal study of thyroid markers during pregnancy and the risk of gestational diabetes mellitus and post-partum glucose metabolism.

Diabetes Metab Res Rev 2021 May 22;37(4):e3441. Epub 2021 Feb 22.

Department of Endocrinology, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, Liaoning, China.

Aims: To determine the relationship between thyroid markers during pregnancy and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) or post-partum glucose metabolism.

Materials And Methods: Based on pregnancy 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) results, 1467 subjects were grouped into normal glucose tolerance (NGTp; n = 768) and GDM (n = 699) groups.

Drug-induced acanthosis nigricans: A systematic review and new classification.

Dermatol Ther 2021 Mar 4;34(2):e14794. Epub 2021 Feb 4.

Department of Medicine, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Drug-induced acanthosis nigricans is an uncommon subtype of acanthosis nigricans and the data on this topic is not well understood by clinicians as it is presently limited in the literature. Previous reports of drug-induced acanthosis nigricans have simply consisted of a list of drugs possibly implicated in causing acanthosis nigricans. Several drugs listed are based on single case reports without biopsy confirmation, report of clearing on stopping the drug or reporting on whether acanthosis nigricans recurred with drug rechallenge.

Hyperandrogenism, Insulin Resistance, and Acanthosis Nigricans (HAIR-AN) Syndrome Reflects Adipose Tissue Dysfunction ("Adiposopathy" or "Sick Fat") in Asian Indian Girls.

Dermatology 2021 Jan 14:1-9. Epub 2021 Jan 14.

Department of Skin and VD, SMS Medical College and Hospital, Jaipur, India,

Background: Whether HAIR-AN syndrome and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) are distinct entities or represent a phenotypic spectrum of the same syndrome is still unclear. HAIR-AN syndrome is characterized by high insulin resistance, obesity, and hyperinsulinemia as compared to PCOS and could represent adipose tissue dysfunction as the primary pathophysiologic trigger. This study was undertaken to study the role of adipose tissue dysfunction in HAIR-AN syndrome and PCOS using adipocytokines as surrogate markers of "adiposopathy. Read More

Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2020 Oct 14;2020. Epub 2020 Oct 14.

Division of Endocrinology, Hospital Nacional Guillermo Almenara Irigoyen, Lima, Peru.

Summary: Type B insulin resistance syndrome (TBIR) is a rare autoimmune disease caused by antibodies against the insulin receptor. It should be considered in patients with dysglycaemia and severe insulin resistance when other more common causes have been ruled out. We report a case of a 72-year-old male with a 4-year history of type 2 diabetes who presented with hypercatabolism, vitiligo, acanthosis nigricans, and hyperglycaemia resistant to massive doses of insulin (up to 1000 U/day).
