Mosaic Neurofibromatosis Type 1 With Multiple Cutaneous Diffuse and Plexiform Neurofibromas of the Lower Leg.

Anticancer Res 2020 Jun;40(6):3423-3427

Institute of Human Genetics, Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, Magdeburg, Germany.

Background: Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant hereditary disease with complete penetrance and a very variable phenotype. Recent research has shown that postzygotic NF1 gene mutations occur to a far greater extent than previously thought. The phenotype of affected individuals reflects the time of somatic mutation and the phenotype is correspondingly diverse. Read More

Satellite glial cells in sensory ganglia express functional transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 that is sensitized in neuropathic and inflammatory pain.

Mol Pain 2020 Jan-Dec;16:1744806920925425

Department of Anesthesiology, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, USA.

Transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) is well documented as an important molecule in pain hypersensitivity following inflammation and nerve injury and in many other cellular biological processes. Here, we show that TRPA1 is expressed not only by sensory neurons of the dorsal root ganglia (DRG) but also in their adjacent satellite glial cells (SGCs), as well as nonmyelinating Schwann cells. TRPA1 immunoreactivity is also detected in various cutaneous structures of sensory neuronal terminals, including small and large caliber cutaneous sensory fibers and endings. Read More

Cutaneous metastasis of ascending colon cancer harboring a BRAF V600E mutation: A rare case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 May;99(21):e20026

Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery, Hubei Cancer Hospital, Tongji Medical College, University of Science and Technology, Huazhong.

Rationale: Cutaneous metastases from colorectal cancer are extremely rare and generally appear several years after diagnosis or resection of the primary colorectal tumor. Although cutaneous metastasis is unusual, it often indicates a poor prognosis.

Patient Concerns: We treated a 62-year-old woman with multiple cutaneous metastatic nodules on the chest, back, and armpit 7 months after resection of ascending colon cancer. Read More

Systemic adjuvant therapy for adult patients at high risk for recurrent melanoma: A systematic review.

Cancer Treat Rev 2020 Jul 27;87:102032. Epub 2020 May 27.

University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada; Odette Cancer Centre, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Cutaneous melanoma is typically treated with wide local excision and, when appropriate, a sentinel node biopsy. Many patients are cured with this approach but for patients who have cancers with high risk features there is a significant risk of local and distant relapse and death. Interferon-based adjuvant therapy was recommended in the past but had modest results with significant toxicity. Read More

Pivotal role of CD103 in the development of psoriasiform dermatitis.

Sci Rep 2020 May 20;10(1):8371. Epub 2020 May 20.

Division of Immunology, Department of Infectious Diseases, Faculty of Medicine, University of Miyazaki, 5200 Kihara, Kiyotake, Miyazaki, 889-1692, Japan.

The integrin αE known as CD103 binds integrin β7 to form the complete heterodimeric integrin molecule αEβ7. CD103 is mainly expressed by lymphocytes within epithelial tissues of intestine, lung, and skin as well as subsets of mucosal and dermal conventional dendritic cells (cDCs). CD103 has been originally implicated in the attachment of lymphocytes to epithelium in the gut and skin through the interaction with E-cadherin expressed on intestinal epithelial cells, keratinocytes, and Langerhans cells (LCs).

Eyelid Complications Associated with Surgery for Periocular Cutaneous Malignancies.

Facial Plast Surg 2020 Apr 15;36(2):166-175. Epub 2020 May 15.

Department of Ophthalmology, Kellogg Eye Center, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Periocular skin is highly prone to malignancies, especially basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas. Because of the complex anatomy and eye-protecting functions of the periocular tissues, treatment of these cancers requires special considerations. Mohs micrographic surgery is usually the treatment of choice, whenever possible, in order to enhance margin control while limiting collateral damage to nearby normal structures. Read More

Mitochondrial energy metabolism is negatively regulated by cannabinoid receptor 1 in intact human epidermis.

Exp Dermatol 2020 May 4. Epub 2020 May 4.

Monasterium Laboratory Skin & Hair Research Solutions GmbH, Münster, Germany.

Epidermal energy metabolism is relevant to skin physiology, ageing and photodamage. While selected hormones stimulate epidermal keratinocyte mitochondrial activity, its negative regulation remains unknown. In several cell types, cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB ) is expressed both on the cell membrane (cmCB ) and on the mitochondrial outer membrane (mtCB ), where its stimulation directly suppresses mitochondrial functions.

A 60-year-old healthy man presented with several enlarging, tender, spontaneously bleeding, and episodically pruritic nodules on his ear. Five agminated pink-red papulonodules of the superior postauricular sulcus were noted on examination. Pathological examination revealed a lobular dermal vascular proliferation with plump endothelial cells protruding into the lumen in a hobnail pattern, along with a dense perivascular inflammatory infiltrate composed of plasma cells, lymphocytes, and numerous eosinophils.

Adv Exp Med Biol 2020 ;1226:123-142

Immunology Department, "Victor Babes" National Institute of Pathology, Bucharest, Romania.

Tumour microenvironment is a complex system comprising cells and molecules that will provide the necessary conditions for tumour development and progression. Cells residing in the tumour microenvironment gain specific phenotypes and specific functions that are pro-tumorigenic. Tumour progression is in fact a combination between tumour cell characteristics and its interplay with tumour microenvironment. Read More
