Keratin 6a mutations lead to impaired mitochondrial quality control.

Br J Dermatol 2019 Apr 20. Epub 2019 Apr 20.

Institute of Molecular and Cellular Anatomy, RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany.

Background: Epidermal differentiation is a multi-level process in which keratinocytes need to lose their organelles including their mitochondria by autophagy. Disturbed autophagy leads to thickening of the epidermis as it is encountered in Pachyonychia congenita, a rare skin disease caused by mutations in keratins 6, 16, and 17.

Objectives: We therefore asked if mitophagy is disturbed in Pachyonychia congenita and if so at which stage. Read More

Usefulness of the "two-step method" of digital follow-up in early stage melanoma detection in at high risk French patients - A retrospective 4-year study.

Br J Dermatol 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

APHP Service de Dermatologie, Hôpital Saint-Louis, Paris.

Dermoscopy was proven more accurate than naked-eye examination and sequential digital dermoscopy imaging (SDDI) superior to dermoscopy alone for melanoma detection . SDDI combined with total-body photography (TBP) namely the "two-step method" of digital follow-up (DFU), seems at present the best surveillance strategy for high risk patients. With the aim to endorse its usefulness, we retrospectively studied 148 at high risk patients included in DFU at the Dermato-oncology Unit of Hôpital Saint-Louis between 2014 and 2018. Read More

Primary pediatric cutaneous mucinoses.

Authors:
F Rongioletti

Br J Dermatol 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Unit of Dermatology, Department of Medical Sciences and Public Health, University of Cagliari, Italy.

Primary cutaneous mucinoses are a heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by the abnormal deposition of glycosamminoglycans (mucin) in the skin as the main histopathological clue resulting in distinctive clinical presentations. They are usually diseases of adult age and are uncommon in children in whom the diagnosis and the management are a difficult task. In particular, the classification of primary cutaneous mucinoses occurring in childhood is a difficult and confusing challenge because of the very limited number of described cases and overlaps in their clinicopathological features in the absence of reports of homogeneous case series.

Development of clinical diagnostic criteria for plaque psoriasis in children: An eDelphi consensus study with the International Psoriasis Council.

Br J Dermatol 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK.

Psoriasis in children can be a challenging diagnosis: the clinical presentation is often more subtle, may occur in covered sites and can be an unexpected diagnosis as psoriasis if often thought to occur at older ages. Poor recognition and delayed diagnosis of psoriasis in children can lead to inadequate treatment and lack of monitoring for comorbidities including juvenile psoriatic arthritis. Diagnostic criteria would help both clinical practice and clinical research, but to date none are available. Read More

Clinical response of psoriasis to subcutaneous methotrexate correlates with inhibition of cutaneous Th1- and Th17-inflammatory pathways.

Br J Dermatol 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Dermatological Sciences, University of Manchester, Manchester, UK.

Methotrexate (MTX) is one of the most frequently used conventional systemic therapies for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque-type psoriasis. Although it has been available since the 1950s (1), its exact mechanism of action in the treatment of chronic inflammatory skin conditions remains to be fully determined. Clinical studies indicate good clinical responses (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index, PASI 75) in approximately 40% of patients with psoriasis and clinical effects peak after approximately 16 weeks of therapy (2, 3, 4).
