Giant cellulitis-like Sweet syndrome: An underrecognized clinical variant mimicking skin and soft tissue infection.

IDCases 2020 16;21:e00874. Epub 2020 Jun 16.

Department of Medicine, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, United States.

A new clinical variant of Sweet syndrome, called giant cellulitis-like Sweet syndrome, can masquerade as cellulitis because the patients present with an acute onset of large erythematous plaques, fever, and leukocytosis with neutrophil predominance. This case describes a 90-year-old female with a history of invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast who presented with 3 days of erythema of the right chest and right leg. Physical examination was notable for well-demarcated, blanching erythematous rashes involving the right chest and right lower extremity. Read More

Sugar causes obesity and metabolic syndrome in mice independently of sweet taste.

Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 2020 Jun 23. Epub 2020 Jun 23.

University of Colorado, Division of Renal Diseases and Hypertension, University of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora, CO, United States.

Intake of sugars and especially the fructose component, is strongly associated with the development of obesity and metabolic syndrome, but the relative role of taste versus metabolism in driving preference, intake and metabolic outcome is not fully understood. To this end, we aimed to evaluate the preference for sweet substances and the tendency to develop metabolic syndrome in response to these sugars in mice lacking functional taste signaling (P2X2/P2X3 double knockout mice) and mice unable to metabolize fructose (fructokinase knockout mice). Our data indicate that despite their inability to taste sweetness, P2X2/3 DKO mice still prefer caloric sugars (including fructose and glucose) to water in longterm testing although with diminished preference compared to control mice.

Non-nutritive Sweeteners and Their Associations with Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes.

J Obes Metab Syndr 2020 Jun;29(2):114-123

Department of Health, Human Performance, and Recreation, Robbins College of Health and Human Sciences, Baylor University, Waco, TX, USA.

Evidence linking the excessive consumption of nutritive sweeteners (NS) to adverse metabolic health outcomes has led to an increase in consumption of non-nutritive sweeteners (NNS), particularly among the obese and individuals with diabetes. NNS are characterized by having zero-to-negligible caloric load, while also having a sweet taste. They are utilized as a replacement for traditional NS to reduce energy intake and to limit carbohydrate-related negative health outcomes. Read More

Institute of Dermatology, Santa Maria della Misericordia University Hospital, Udine, Italy.

A prompt recognition of life-threatening and severe acute rashes is of utmost importance to start an appropriate therapy as soon as possible. Consequently, clinicians often must rely only on clinical data to make a diagnosis because some diagnostic procedures may take a relatively long time to be performed (eg, histologic examination, microbiologic tests). In this scenario, dermatoscopy may be useful as an auxiliary tool to support the diagnosis by highlighting subclinical features. Read More

Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma Associated with High Procalcitonin, Hypercalcemia, Polycythemia and Leukocytosis.

Cureus 2020 Jan 7;12(1):e6587. Epub 2020 Jan 7.

Gastroenterology, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, USA.

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas or bile duct cancers comprise approximately 10-20% of all cholangiocarcinomas and may present with right upper quadrant pain, weight loss, liver enzyme abnormalities or they may be completely asymptomatic and be picked incidentally on routine abdominal imaging. Typically, hepatocellular carcinomas have been associated with various paraneoplastic syndromes such as hypercalcemia, erythrocytosis, hypoglycemia, diarrhea and skin changes though paraneoplastic syndromes in the setting of cholangiocarcinoma do occur as well. Cholangiocarcinomas are usually associated with dermal paraneoplastic syndromes (Sweet syndrome, porphyria cutanea tarda, acanthosis nigricans, necrotic migratory erythema, erythema multiforme, bullous pemphigoid), hypercalcemia, leukocytosis and limbic encephalitis.

Thalidomide in the Treatment of Sweet's Syndrome and Eosinophilic Folliculitis Associated With Immune Reconstitution Inflammatory Syndrome.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2019 21;6:343. Epub 2020 Jan 21.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, First Affiliated Hospital of Kunming Medical University, Kunming, China.

Sweet's syndrome and eosinophilic folliculitis are aseptic inflammatory dermatitis mainly because of infiltrated neutrophils and eosinophils on skin, respectively. These diseases rarely overlap or coexist in the same patient, especially co-occur in HIV infected patient. Here, we report a rare case of an AIDS patient who developed eosinophilic folliculitis and Sweet's syndrome within 1 month of initial antiretroviral therapy, presumably due to immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome.

[A case of Sweet syndrome in a patient receiving erlotinib for lung adenocarcinoma].

Ann Dermatol Venereol 2020 Mar 3;147(3):202-206. Epub 2020 Feb 3.

Service de dermatologie, grand hôpital de Charleroi (GHDC), Charleroi, Belgique; Rue de Villers, 1, 6280 Loverval, Belgique.

Introduction: Sweet syndrome is a neutrophilic dermatosis and is often idiopathic, although its onset may be drug-induced or paraneoplastic. The purpose of this case report is to describe the very first occurrence of Sweet syndrome following erlotinib intake in a patient diagnosed with lung adenocarcinoma.

Patients And Methods: We observed Sweet syndrome, as assessed by clinical, laboratory and histological examination, in a middle-aged female patient presenting lung adenocarcinoma diagnosed three years prior to her cutaneous symptoms. Read More

Type 2 leprosy reaction resembling Sweet syndrome: Review of new and published cases.

Australas J Dermatol 2020 May 27;61(2):e234-e237. Epub 2020 Jan 27.

Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo León- School of Medicine - Dermatology Department Hospital Universitario "Dr. Jose Eleuterio Gonzalez", Monterrey, Mexico.

A leprosy reaction resembling Sweet syndrome was first described in 1987. This cutaneous manifestation can be classified as the type 2 reaction which arises from antigen-antibody interaction. It can occur in patients with diagnosed or undiagnosed leprosy, and men with borderline leprosy tend to exhibit this type of reaction. Read More

Mark K Asplen

Insects 2020 Jan 18;11(1). Epub 2020 Jan 18.

Natural Sciences Department, Metropolitan State University, Saint Paul, MN 55106, USA.

Gains in our knowledge of dispersal and migration in insects have been largely limited to either wing-dimorphic species or current genetic model systems. Species belonging to these categories, however, represent only a tiny fraction of insect biodiversity, potentially making generalization problematic. In this perspective, I present three topics in which current and future research may lead to greater knowledge of these processes in wing-monomorphic insects with limited existing molecular tools.
