[Early diagnosis, prevention and treatment for calcific uremic arteriolopathy].

Zhong Nan Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban 2018 Nov;43(11):1251-1256

Department of Nephrology, Third Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha 410013, China.

Calcific uremic arteriopathy (CUA), termed calciphylaxis, is a rare but highly fatal clinical syndrome. There is no clearly laboratory diagnostic criteria for CUA. The medium and small arterial calcification and microthrombosis discovered by skin biopsy, radiologic imaging,bone scan and the evidence of activation of the bone morphogenetic protein signal (BMPs) transduction pathway are useful for early diagnosis of this disease.

Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VAMC, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA; Department of Dermatology, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Systemic sclerosis is an uncommon autoimmune connective tissue disease with multiorgan system involvement and significant associated morbidity and mortality. Cutaneous signs and clinical manifestations are of particular importance, as they may be recognized before systemic manifestations, allowing earlier risk stratification into the limited and diffuse cutaneous subtypes, as well as earlier initiation of treatment. Important cutaneous manifestations include Raynaud's phenomenon, digital ulcers, cutaneous sclerosis, calcinosis cutis, telangiectasias, pruritus, and dyspigmentation. Read More

Usefulness of high-frequency ultrasonography in the assessment of cutaneous lesions in children with hematologic malignancies.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Sep 26;35(5):e276-e280. Epub 2018 Jun 26.

Dermatology Department, University Hospital La Paz, Madrid, Spain.

High-frequency ultrasonography is a bedside tool increasingly used for the assessment of skin lesions, but there have been few reports about its importance in children with skin signs of hematologic disease. We present three cases to highlight the usefulness of high-frequency ultrasonography in assisting with the diagnosis of these skin lesions. Read More

Should all digital ulcers be included in future clinical trials of systemic sclerosis-related digital vasculopathy?

Med Hypotheses 2018 Jul 2;116:101-104. Epub 2018 May 2.

Centre for Musculoskeletal Research, The University of Manchester, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, Manchester, UK; NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre, Central Manchester NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, UK.

Digital ulcers (DU) are a common manifestation of systemic sclerosis (SSc) and occur at a variety of locations including the fingertips and over the extensor aspects of the hands. However, most recent clinical trials have included only fingertip DUs as these are believed to be ischaemic in aetiology, and therefore likely to benefit from treatment with vasoactive drug therapies. There is an emerging evidence base to suggest that all DUs in SSc could share an ischaemic component which is potentially responsive to vascular therapy. Read More

An Update on Calciphylaxis.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2018 Aug;19(4):599-608

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital "Dr. José Eleuterio González", Autonomous University of Nuevo León, Av. Madero y Gonzalitos S/N 64460 Col. Mitras Centro, Monterrey, Mexico.

Calciphylaxis, also known as calcific uremic arteriolopathy and uremic small artery disease with medial wall calcification and intimal hyperplasia, is a multifactorial cutaneous vascular disease characterized by chronic, painful, non-healing wounds that occur frequently in patients with chronic kidney disease, predominantly in those with end-stage renal disease. The pathogenesis remains unclear, and the development of calciphylaxis lesions depends on medial calcification, intimal fibrosis of arterioles and thrombotic occlusion. Despite an increase in reports of calciphylaxis in the literature and clinical recognition of demographic characteristics and risk factors associated with calciphylaxis, it remains a poorly understood disease with high morbidity and mortality.

Report of a man with heterotopic ossification of the legs.

Reumatol Clin 2018 May 21. Epub 2018 May 21.

Servicio de Radiodiagnóstico, Hospital General Universitario de Ciudad Real, Ciudad Real, España.

Heterotopic ossification is an uncommon disorder that consists of deposition of ectopic bone outside the extraskeletal tissues. In the skin, it can be primary, in association with genetic syndromes, or be secondary to different disorders. The latter include subcutaneous ossification of the legs in chronic venousinsufficiency, an infrequent and unrecognized complication. Read More

The Scleroderma Hand: Manifestations of Disease and Approach to Management.

J Hand Surg Am 2018 Jun;43(6):550-557

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Johns Hopkins Medicine, Baltimore, MD. Electronic address:

Scleroderma is a rare autoimmune connective tissue disorder that often affects the hands. Manifestations in the hands include calcium deposits within the soft tissues that cause pain and may ulcerate through the skin, digital ischemia resulting in chronic wounds and digital gangrene, and joint contracture. Because of the underlying disease, patients with scleroderma have poorly vascularized tissue and a deficient soft tissue envelope, which make surgery particularly challenging. Read More
