An Bras Dermatol 2020 May - Jun;95(3):336-339. Epub 2020 Apr 18.

Department of Dermatology and Venerology, Faculty of Medicine, Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey.

Acquired reactive perforating collagenosis is a rare skin disorder characterized by the presence of umbilicated pruritic papules and nodules. Transepidermal elimination of altered and perforating bundles of basophilic collagen from the epidermis is a characteristic histologic feature of acquired reactive perforating collagenosis. Along with its well-known association with systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus, chronic renal failure, and dermatomyositis, there are reports of acquired reactive perforating collagenosis being associated with malignancies.

Validation of an algorithm based on clinical, histopathological and immunohistochemical data for the diagnosis of early-stage mycosis fungoides.

An Bras Dermatol 2020 May - Jun;95(3):326-331. Epub 2020 Mar 20.

Background: Diagnosis of mycosis fungoides is challenging due to the non-specificity of clinical and histopathological findings. The literature indicates an average delay of 4-6 years for a conclusive diagnosis. Refinement of the histopathological criteria for the diagnosis of patients in early stages of the disease is considered of interest. Read More

Wide area digital dermoscopy applied to basal cell carcinoma.

Department of Dermatology, Hospital Santa Casa de Misericórdia de Curitiba, Curitiba, PR, Brazil.

In situations in when a dermoscopic record of a large lesion is desirable, the resulting images are usually restricted to a small field of view due to the limited diameter of dermatoscope lenses. This limitation often produces several photographs separately, thus losing the possibility of a single-image global evaluation. In these case reports, we show examples of a recently published image montage technique called Wide Area Digital Dermoscopy, in this case, applied to basal cell carcinomas. Read More

Use of psychiatric drugs in Dermatology.

An Bras Dermatol 2020 Mar - Apr;95(2):133-143. Epub 2020 Feb 18.

Dermatology Service, Universidade Federal de Ciências da Saúde de Porto Alegre, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil.

Patients with psychocutaneous disorders often refuse psychiatric intervention in their first consultations, leaving initial management to the dermatologist. The use of psychotropic agents in dermatological practice, represented by antidepressants, antipsychotics, anxiolytics, and mood stabilizers, should be indicated so that patients receive the most suitable treatment rapidly. It is important for dermatologists to be familiar with the most commonly used drugs for the best management of psychiatric symptoms associated with dermatoses, as well as to manage dermatologic symptoms triggered by psychiatric disorders.

High rate of sensitization to Kathon CG, detected by patch tests in patients with suspected allergic contact dermatitis.

An Bras Dermatol 2020 Mar - Apr;95(2):194-199. Epub 2020 Jan 31.

Sector of Immunology, Instituto Lauro de Souza Lima, Bauru, SP, Brazil.

Background: Kathon CG, a combination of methylchloroisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone, is widely used as preservative in cosmetics, as well in household cleaning products, industrial products such as paints and glues. It has emerged as an important sensitizing agent in allergic contact dermatitis.

Objectives: This study evaluated the reactivity to this substance in patients subjected to patch tests at the Dermatology Institute in Bauru, São Paulo from 2015 to 2017 and its correlation with other preservatives, the professional activity and location of the lesions. Read More

Analysis of filaggrin 2 gene polymorphisms in patients with atopic dermatitis.

An Bras Dermatol 2020 Mar - Apr;95(2):173-179. Epub 2020 Jan 25.

Histocompatibility and Cryopreservation Laboratory, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.

Background: Polymorphisms of the filaggrin 2 gene (rs 12568784 and rs 16899374) are associated with persistent atopic dermatitis in African American patients. Filaggrin 2 is a protein with a function similar to filaggrin and also encoded in the epidermal differentiation complex on chromosome 1q21.

Objective: To evaluate the polymorphisms in the filaggrin 2 gene (rs 12568784 and rs 16899374) in children and adults with atopic dermatitis and to verify the association of these with the severity of the clinical picture, presence of other allergic diseases, and socio-demographic factors.

Papillary intralymphatic angioendothelioma: Dabska tumor.

An Bras Dermatol 2020 Mar - Apr;95(2):214-216. Epub 2020 Feb 12.

Pathological Anatomy Service, Studart & Studart Laboratory, Salvador, BA, Brazil.

Papillary intralymphatic angioendothelioma (Dabska tumor) is a rarely metastasizing lymphatic vascular neoplasm that usually affects children and young adults. The majority of these cases occur in soft tissues of extremities, and to date less than 40 cases have been described. Despite the generally indolent evolution, can be locally invasive with the potential to metastasize. Read More
