    [Pityriasis rubra pilaris].
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 2017 Dec 28. Epub 2017 Dec 28.
    Service de dermatologie, hôpitaux universitaires de Genève (HUG), 1211 Genève, Suisse.
    Pityriasis rubra pilaris is a rare heterogeneous dermatosis associating three clinical signs to different degrees: follicular corneal papules, reddish-orange palmoplantar keratoderma and erythematosquamous lesions that may in some cases be very extensive, interspersed with patches of healthy skin. The aetiology is unclear, and in most cases, the trigger factors consist of trauma or infection, probably in subjects with an existing predisposition. In other cases, the condition is associated with immunological disorders or, in familial cases, genetic keratinisation abnormalities similar to ichthyosis. Read More

    Background: Anaplastic Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is a rare form of KS characterized clinically by the development of a tumour mass with unusual local aggressiveness and histologically by a specific architecture and cytological morphology. A very small number of limited series in endemic countries have established characteristics common to these anaplastic forms of KS. We present five patients with an anaplastic form in a context of KS ongoing for several years in a non-endemic country. Read More

    Service de dermatologie, hôpital Robert-Debré, Reims, France. Electronic address:
    On a therapeutic point of view, 2017 in dermatology could be summarized in one disease, one pathway and in one number : atopic dermatitis, JAK inhibitors and 23. 2017 will be the year of the first registration of a biologic treatment in atopic dermatitis, dupilumab, with numerous other drugs currently in development. JAK inhibitors show promising results in several difficult-to-treat conditions, such as alopecia areata, vitiligo or atopic dermatitis, but still warrant confirmation in upcoming controlled trials.

    Human hosts a large number of microorganisms that constitute its microbiome and the vast majority of them are very useful and even essentials. The human microbiome is a complex ecosystem where live populations of transient or resident microorganisms. The process of co-development or co-adaptation played a major role in the establishment of indigenous communities and help explain the dominance of positive interactions (commensal, symbiotic or mutualistic) in the human-microorganism relationship.

    Service de dermatologie, CHU de Nantes, 1, place Alexis-Ricordeau, 44000 Nantes, France.
    Atopic dermatitis is a multifactorial disease due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. The pathophysiological mechanisms involved in AD are multiple: innate functional abnormality in the skin barrier partly linked to mutations of the filaggrin, a major structural protein of the skin; and genes involved in innate and adaptive immunity; Finally, the model of the hygiene theory has been clarified in recent years: environmental factors alter the diversity of skin and digestive microbiomes, and this diversity seems to play a major role in the development of atopy.
