Hydroxychloroquine treatment for Alopecia Universalis: Report of six cases.

Australas J Dermatol 2020 Jul 7. Epub 2020 Jul 7.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, School of Medicine, Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey.

Recent reports indicate that hydroxychloroquine is a potential new treatment option for alopecia universalis; thus, we aimed to report on the safety and efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in 6 patients with refractory alopecia universalis that were treated with 400 mg/d continuously for ≥6 months. The treatment outcome was retrospectively evaluated using the Severity of Alopecia Tool (SALT), and at the end of 6 months, patients with a ≥50% decrease in the SALT score were considered as strong responders, a 5%-50% decrease as intermediate responders and a <5% decrease as non-responders. The present findings indicate that hydroxychloroquine is not an effective treatment since in 5 of the 6 patients it was discontinued at the end of 6 months due to lack of hair regrowth, whereas only a 6-year-old boy responded with a SALT score change of 8% after the 12th month.

Juvenile gangrenous vasculitis of the scrotum: A rare cause of genital ulcer.

Australas J Dermatol 2020 Jun 29. Epub 2020 Jun 29.

University Clinic of Dermatology , Hospital de Santa Maria, Lisbon, Portugal.

Juvenile gangrenous vasculitis of the scrotum is a rare entity of unknown aetiology which should be considered in the differential diagnosis of genital ulcers, mainly with those caused by sexually transmitted infections. The authors report a case of a 23-year-old patient who presented a single painful scrotal ulcer developing shortly after an episode of pharyngotonsillitis. The ulcer was treated with oral corticosteroids with total healing and no relapse in over two years of follow-up. Read More

Australas J Dermatol 2020 Jun 25. Epub 2020 Jun 25.

Concord Repatriation General Hospital, Concord, NSW, Australia.

Eosinophilic cellulitis is a rare inflammatory skin disease of unknown aetiology, first described by George Wells in 1971 as a recurrent granulomatous dermatitis with eosinophilia. It is typically characterised by recurrent pruritic erythematous plaques, vesicles or bullae usually involving the extremities and trunk. Many cases of eosinophilic cellulitis are difficult to treat and traditionally require long course of oral steroids, resulting in steroid side effects. Read More

A case of cutaneous extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma clinically and histopathologically mimicking interface dermatitis.

Australas J Dermatol 2020 Jun 2. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Department of Dermatology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTL) is a rare but aggressive cancer characterised by angiocentric and angiodestructive infiltration by NK-cells, or cytotoxic T-cell types. Histopathologically, ENKTL shows a multinodular or diffuse infiltration localised to vascular structures, resulting in angiodestruction and necrosis. We present a patient with an initially suspected diagnosis of benign interface dermatitis with a differential diagnosis of mycosis fungoides that was later found to be an aggressive extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma of a nasal type and with a dismal prognosis.

Different epigenome regulation and transcriptome expression of CD4 and CD8 T cells from monozygotic twins discordant for psoriasis.

Shanxi Key Laboratory of Stem Cells for Immunological Dermatosis, Institute of Dermatology, Taiyuan Central Hospital of Shanxi Medical University, Taiyuan, China.

Objectives: Psoriasis is an immunodeficient skin disorder, and its exact pathogenesis is unclear. Monozygotic twins are presumed to be genetically identical, and their phenotypic differences may be due to transcriptional regulation or epigenome factors. To explain the inconsistency between twins, we have collected 3 pairs of monozygotic twins who are discordant for psoriasis. Read More

Objectives: The study examines the changes in dermoscopic features of actinic keratosis (AK) after photodynamic therapy, and delineates the association between AK dermoscopic and histopathological findings.

Methods: A total of 21 patients (23 lesions) with pathologically confirmed actinic keratosis who received 5-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT) were enrolled. The numbers of PDT treatments were: 1, n = 1; 2, n = 2; 3, n = 10; 4, n = 6; 5, n = 2; 6, n = 2). Read More

A CLOSE-UP guide to capturing clinical images.

Australas J Dermatol 2020 May 18. Epub 2020 May 18.

Australasian College of Dermatologists E-Health Committee, Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

Telemedicine is rapidly becoming ubiquitous as the medical profession adjusts its practice to provide optimal care to patients in the context of the COVID19 pandemic. The ability to provide accurate dermatological advice via telemedicine is dependent on the receipt of high-quality clinical images and accurate clinical context, on which clinicians receive little education during medical school and subsequent training. Clinicians can improve their capture, delivery and storage of images using the CLOSE-UP acronym, which encapsulates important considerations in the clinical photography process. Read More
