Biological and clinical significance of T helper 17 cell deficiency: insight into monogenic defects.

Eur Ann Allergy Clin Immunol 2020 06 18. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

Non-communicable Diseases Research Center, Alborz University of Medical Sciences, Karaj, Iran.

T helper 17 (Th17) are a CD4+ T subpopulation cells which are involved in the host protection against microbes such as extracellular and intracellular bacteria, parasites, fungi, and viruses. Monogenic defects including those mutations in some genes such as the signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT)1 and 3, dedicator of cytokinesis 8 (DOCK8), autoimmune regulator (AIRE), and interleukin 17 receptor A (IL-17RA) can lead to impairment in Th17 cell development and function along with the concomitant increased risk for chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis (CMC). The immunologic abnormalities in these patients include low frequency of Th17 cells; defective cutaneous or in vitro T cell response to Candida species, and/or autoantibodies against relevant cytokines.

Autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 1: a case report and brief review.

J Community Hosp Intern Med Perspect 2019 19;9(3):252-254. Epub 2019 Jun 19.

Community Medicine Department, Federal Teaching Hospital Abakiliki, Abakiliki, Nigeria.

Autoimmune polyglandular syndrome (APS) type 1 is a rare autoimmune disorder inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern due to loss of function of the AIRE gene and defective removal of self-reactive T-lymphocytes during the process of thymic T cell maturation. Its manifestation starts early in life with the cardinal clinical disorders being one of muco-cutaneous candidiasis, Addison's disease, and hypoparathyroidism. Recognizing the syndromic nature of one autoimmune disease will facilitate an active search for other conditions which would allow early detection, management, follow-up, and most importantly patient education and counselling to avoid potential complications.

Angioinvasive fungal infections impacting the skin: Background, epidemiology, and clinical presentation.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2019 Apr 10;80(4):869-880.e5. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

Department of Dermatology and Pathology, University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa. Electronic address:

Angioinvasive fungal infections cause significant morbidity and mortality because of their propensity to invade blood vessel walls, resulting in catastrophic tissue ischemia, infarct, and necrosis. While occasionally seen in immunocompetent hosts, opportunistic fungi are emerging in immunosuppressed hosts, including patients with hematologic malignancy, AIDS, organ transplant, and poorly controlled diabetes mellitus. The widespread use of antifungal prophylaxis has led to an "arms race" of emerging fungal resistance patterns. Read More
