Intravenous immunoglobulin G use in patients with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy: An uncommon cause of drug-induced discoid lupus erythematosus.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Dermatology, Temple University Hospital, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Drug-induced chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus, or drug-induced discoid lupus erythematosus, is a rare cutaneous phenomenon. Various medications have been associated with drug-induced discoid lupus erythematosus including fluorouracile agents, especially tegafur and uraciltegafur, and TNF-α antagonists such as infliximab or etanercept. Recent literature has described a case series of six patients receiving IgG immunoglobulin for chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy with subsequent presentations of discoid lupus erythematosus.

Prurigo successfully treated with duloxetine hydrochloride.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Dermatology, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

Prurigo is a common skin disease characterised by erythematous macules and papules/nodules with severe pruritus. We report here two cases with treatment-resistant prurigo that were successfully treated with duloxetine hydrochloride, a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. In vivo experiments with a mouse model of prurigo-like inflammation showed that duloxetine hydrochloride ameliorated not only scratching behaviours, but also skin inflammation. Read More

Nonclassical pemphigus with exclusively IgG anti-desmocollin 3-specific antibodies.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Dermatology, Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain.

We describe a patient with nonclassical clinical and histopathological features of pemphigus with exclusively IgG antibodies against desmocollin (Dsc) 3 detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay of recombinant eukaryotic protein of Dsc1-Dsc3. The absence of antibodies against other known targets, such as desmogleins, reinforces the role of anti-Dsc antibodies in the pathophysiology of atypical pemphigus. Read More

Expression of B and T lymphocyte attenuator, retinoid-related orphan receptor gamma-isoform-t and interleukin 7 in psoriasis vulgaris.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Molecular Genetics, National Research Centre, Cairo, Egypt.

Background/objectives: Psoriasis is one of the immune-mediated inflammatory diseases where CD4+ T lymphocytes, mainly Th1 cells, and B lymphocytes contribute in their pathogenesis through a pro-inflammatory effect, production of antibodies, activation of T cells and cytokine synthesis. B and T lymphocyte attenuator (BTLA) is a co-inhibitory molecule expressed on T and B lymphocytes as well as other immune cells, and it is necessary to inhibit homoeostatic expansion and activation of lymph node and skin-resident γδ T cells. BTLA expression is regulated by RORγt and IL-7. Read More

St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Muir Torre syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterised by germline mutations in mismatch repair genes involved in DNA repair, leading to microsatellite instability and a propensity to tumour formation. We report a case of a 67-year-old gentleman who underwent biopsy of a smooth nodular lesion on the nasal tip, histopathologically consistent with sebaceous adenoma. Immunohistochemistry suggested a loss of MSH6. Read More

The use of cinacalcet for the treatment of calciphylaxis in patients with chronic kidney disease: A comprehensive review.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Department of Dermatology, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Calciphylaxis is a rare but life-threatening condition, most commonly affecting patients with stage 4 or 5 chronic kidney disease. No universally accepted therapy exists so far. In an attempt to avoid surgical intervention with parathyroidectomy, which is of questionable efficacy and carries several risks, a number of noninvasive treatments have been trialled with variable success.

Australas J Dermatol 2018 Dec 27. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Department of Dermatology, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

In situ amelanotic melanoma represents a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for clinicians. Poor demarcation of these lesions often results in repeated therapeutic intervention until appropriate clearance has been achieved. Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a noninvasive bedside imaging modality which allows real-time visualisation, to a near-histological level, of the epidermis and reticular dermis. Read More

The Melanocortin 1 receptor and its influence on naevi and melanoma in dark-skinned phenotypes.

Australas J Dermatol 2018 Dec 25. Epub 2018 Dec 25.

University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

It is well appreciated that melanocortin 1 receptor variants can produce a fair skinned and red-haired phenotype that has a strong association with increased melanoma risk. These patients are easily recognised and given appropriate attention. What may not be appreciated is that darker-skinned individuals may also carry melanocortin 1 receptor variant alleles and that they can also be at increased risk of melanoma. Read More

Australas J Dermatol 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Sinclair Dermatology, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Introduction: The Sinclair Scale of hair midline density is commonly used in clinical dermatology practice as a tool to evaluate the severity of female pattern hair loss (synonym androgenetic alopecia, AGA) and to monitor patient response to treatment. The Sinclair Scale involves a visual evaluation of central hair parting line width, that is performed quickly and with no optical instrumentation. Another approach used to score severity of hair loss is quantitative trichoscopy. Read More

Vulval Crohn disease is rare and likely under-reported, leading to difficulty in diagnosis and delay in treatment. In this case series, we report the clinical features and discuss therapy in 26 consecutive patients with vulval Crohn disease, with or without documented gastrointestinal disease, presenting between January 2016 and July 2018. We highlight the need for treatment that is in some cases more aggressive than the requirement to manage the patient's gastrointestinal involvement. Read More

Clinico-pathological predictors of mismatch repair deficiency in sebaceous neoplasia: A large case series from a single Australian private pathology service.

Australas J Dermatol 2018 Dec 2. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Department of Clinical Pathology, Colorectal Oncogenomics Group, The University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria, Australia.

Background/objectives: Loss of expression of mismatch repair (MMR) proteins is frequently observed in sebaceous skin lesions and can be a herald for Lynch syndrome. The aim of this study was to identify clinico-pathological predictors of MMR deficiency in sebaceous neoplasia that could aid dermatologists and pathologists in determining which sebaceous lesions should undergo MMR immunohistochemistry (IHC).

Methods: An audit of sebaceous skin lesions (excluding hyperplasia) where pathologist-initiated MMR IHC was performed between January 2009 to December 2016 was undertaken from a single pathology practice identifying 928 lesions from 882 individuals. Read More

Efficacy and safety of oral atenolol for the treatment of infantile haemangioma: A systematic review.

Australas J Dermatol 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Recently, several studies have reported their experience in using oral atenolol in patients with infantile haemangioma (IH), especially as an alternative to propranolol, but the efficacy and safety of oral atenolol has not been evaluated. We searched PubMed (Medline), Central, Embase, Web of Science and EBSCOhost (until May 2018) for the eligible studies reporting more than 10 IH patients who were treated with oral atenolol with detailed original data, including outcomes, regimens and adverse events (AEs). The data was standardised and analysed by using R software with meta-package. Read More

Australas J Dermatol 2018 Nov 18. Epub 2018 Nov 18.

Re-epithelialisation is a complex process that involves the migration and proliferation of keratinocytes, as well as the production of cytokines and growth factors that affect wound healing. The precise mechanisms that control the tissue repair process remain poorly understood. Recent evidence indicates that FoxO transcription factors play a crucial role in wound healing. Read More
