Berardinelli-Seip syndrome and progressive myoclonus epilepsy.

Epileptic Disord 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Child Neurology and Psychiatry Unit, "Regina Montis Regalis" Hospital, Mondovì.

Berardinelli-Seip syndrome, or congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 2 (CGL2), is characterized by a lack of subcutaneous adipose tissue and precocious metabolic syndrome with insulin resistance, resulting in diabetes, dyslipidaemia, hepatic steatosis, cardiomyopathy, and acanthosis nigricans. Most reported mutations are associated with mild, non-progressive neurological impairment. We describe the clinical and EEG data of a patient with progressive myoclonus epilepsy (PME), CGL2, and progressive neurological impairment, carrying a homozygous BSCL2 nonsense mutation. Read More

Department of Endocrinology, Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, Soura, Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, India.

Background: Obesity is one of the most common yet neglected public health problems in both the developed and developing countries. Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a multiplex of risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) and it reflects the clustering of multiple risk factors resulting from obesity and insulin resistance. Despite its predominance in obese individuals, MS does occur in non-obese individuals. Read More

Cutaneous paraneoplastic syndromes.

Semin Diagn Pathol 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

PRW Laboratories, Charlottesville, VA, United State.

A variety of cutaneous abnormalities can be seen in patients with malignant diseases, some of which are infectious, with others representing direct involvement of the skin by the underlying disorder. Yet another group of lesions can be regarded as associated markers of the malignant process, and, as such, are termed "paraneoplastic." This review considers the latter collection of conditions, grouping them by the generic type of malignancy that is usually linked to the paraneoplasia. Read More

Non-HPV Papillary Lesions of the Oral Mucosa: Clinical and Histopathologic Features of Reactive and Neoplastic Conditions.

Head Neck Pathol 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Department of Stomatology, Faculty of Dental Medicine, Université de Montréal Montreal, Centre-ville station, PO Box 6128, Montreal, QC, H3C 3J7, Canada.

Excluding human papillomavirus (HPV)-driven conditions, oral papillary lesions consist of a variety of reactive and neoplastic conditions and, on occasion, can herald internal malignancy or be part of a syndrome. The objectives of this paper are to review the clinical and histopathological features of the most commonly encountered non-HPV papillary conditions of the oral mucosa. These include normal anatomic structures (retrocuspid papillae, lingual tonsils), reactive lesions (hairy tongue, inflammatory papillary hyperplasia), neoplastic lesions (giant cell fibroma), lesions of unknown pathogenesis (verruciform xanthoma, spongiotic gingival hyperplasia) and others associated with syndromes (for instance Cowden syndrome) or representing paraneoplastic conditions (malignant acanthosis nigricans).

Endocrinology Division, Department of Medicine, Hospital Universitario "Dr. José E. González", Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

Any clinical/biochemical marker revealing obesity or diabetes before their appearance is valuable. Insulin resistance (IR) is present in both disorders many years before occurrence. Accordingly, we determined whether acanthosis nigricans (AN) in the knuckles is associated to higher insulin and homeostasis model assessment for estimated insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) index values, and assessed the influence of body-mass index (BMI) and the diagnostic performance of AN in the knuckles to detect IR.

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol 2018 7;11:407-413. Epub 2018 Aug 7.

Department of Dermatology, Center for Dermatology Research, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC,

Acanthosis nigricans (AN) is a common dermatologic manifestation of systemic disease that is associated with insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus, obesity, internal malignancy, endocrine disorders, and drug reactions. Treatment of AN primarily focuses on resolution of the underlying disease processes causing the velvety, hyperpigmented, hyperkeratotic plaques found on the skin. While the goal of therapy is to treat the primary cause, cosmetic resolution of AN lesions can be important for patients and their quality of life. Read More

Hidradenitis suppurativa in a patient with hyperandrogenism, insulin-resistance and acanthosis nigricans (HAIR-AN syndrome).

Dermatol Reports 2018 Apr 25;10(1):7546. Epub 2018 Jun 25.

Private Clinic for Dermatology, Allergy and Aesthetic Medicine, Coesfeld, Germany.

The author reports a rare presentation of hidradenitis supprutiva (HS) in combination with hyperandrogenism, insulin-resistance and acanthosis nigricans (HAIR-AN syndrome) in a female patient. Recently many clues have improved the understanding of HS as a systemic disease rather as a disease only with dermatological manifestation. This report might give another hint emphasizing the endocrinological and hormonal role in HS. Read More
