Dermatological Toxicities of Bruton's Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2020 Jul 1. Epub 2020 Jul 1.

Haematology Department, Institut Universitaire du Cancer Toulouse Oncopole, 1 avenue Irène Joliot-Curie, 31059, Toulouse Cedex 9, France.

The development of Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors represents a major breakthrough in the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia and other B cell malignancies. The first-generation inhibitor ibrutinib works by covalent irreversible binding to BTK, a non-receptor tyrosine kinase of the TEC (transient erythroblastopenia of childhood) family that plays a critical role in the B-cell receptor signaling pathway. It also induces an 'off-target' inhibition of a range of other kinases including (but not limited to) epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), SRC, and other kinases of the TEC family (interleukin-2-inducible T-cell kinase [ITK], Tec, BMX).

Desirability Function Approach for Development of a Thermosensitive and Bioadhesive Nanotransfersome-Hydrogel Hybrid System for Enhanced Skin Bioavailability and Antibacterial Activity of Cephalexin.

Drug Dev Ind Pharm 2020 Jun 29:1-42. Epub 2020 Jun 29.

Department of Pharmaceutics, Faculty of Pharmacy, Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Tabriz, Iran.

Cellulitis is a common bacterial infection of the skin and soft tissues immediately beneath the skin. Despite the successful use of antibiotics in the treatment of infectious diseases, bacterial infections continue to impose significant global health challenges because of the rapid emergence of antibiotic resistance. The aim of this work was to develop an hydrogel forming system containing highly permeable cephalexin-loaded nanotransfersomes (NTs), suitable for antibacterial drug delivery. Read More

IDCases 2020 16;21:e00874. Epub 2020 Jun 16.

Department of Medicine, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, United States.

A new clinical variant of Sweet syndrome, called giant cellulitis-like Sweet syndrome, can masquerade as cellulitis because the patients present with an acute onset of large erythematous plaques, fever, and leukocytosis with neutrophil predominance. This case describes a 90-year-old female with a history of invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast who presented with 3 days of erythema of the right chest and right leg. Physical examination was notable for well-demarcated, blanching erythematous rashes involving the right chest and right lower extremity. Read More

Clinical Outcomes and Economic Impact of Oritavancin for Gram-Positive Infections: A Single Academic Medical Center Health System Experience.

Drugs Real World Outcomes 2020 Jun;7(Suppl 1):13-19

Department of Pharmacy, University of Wisconsin Health, 600 Highland Avenue, MC 1530, Madison, WI, 53792, USA.

Background: Vancomycin treatment of complicated Gram-positive infections is associated with laboratory monitoring, nephrotoxicity, and multiple daily dosing. Oritavancin, a lipoglycopeptide antibiotic with a once-weekly dosing strategy and similar but slightly broader spectrum of activity, presents several opportunities over vancomycin to improve compliance and convenience for the patient. Minimal real-world clinical and acquisition cost data in the inpatient setting and clinical data surrounding multiple dosing in the outpatient setting have limited oritavancin use despite its potential logistic advantages.

Hand and Upper Extremity Division, Einstein Healthcare Network, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, 170 West Germantown Pike, Suite C-1, East Norriton, PA 19401, USA. Electronic address:

Hand infections can lead to significant morbidity if not treated promptly. Most of these infections, such as abscesses, tenosynovitis, cellulitis, and necrotizing fasciitis, can be diagnosed clinically. Laboratory values, such as white blood cell count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein, and recently, procalcitonin and interleukin-6, are helpful in supporting the diagnosis and trending disease progression.

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

Front Public Health 2020 3;8:204. Epub 2020 Jun 3.

Department of Ophthalmology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, United States.

Methicillin-resistant (MRSA) is a common cause of severe and difficult to treat ocular infection.

Mepolizumab Therapy for Recalcitrant Eosinophilic Annular Erythema in an Adult: A Case Report and Review of Treatment Options.

Dermatol Ther (Heidelb) 2020 Jun 23. Epub 2020 Jun 23.

Department of Dermatology, University of Rzeszow, Rzeszow, Poland.

Eosinophilic annular erythema (EAE) is a rare condition with a chronic relapsing and remitting course, characterized by the presence of annular or polycyclic erythematous and plaque lesions and prominent tissue eosinophilia on histopathology. There is an ongoing discussion on whether EAE is a subset of Wells syndrome (eosinophilic cellulitis) or a separate entity. To date, few cases of EAE have been reported in the literature; of these, about 40 cases were in adults and fewer than ten cases were in children. Read More

Long-Term Cilostazol Treatment and Predictive Factors on Outcomes of Endovascular Intervention in Patients with Diabetes Mellitus and Critical Limb Ischemia.

Diabetes Ther 2020 Jun 20. Epub 2020 Jun 20.

Institute of Clinical Medicine, School of Medicine, National Yang Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan.

Introduction: Despite improvements in endovascular interventions and multidisciplinary approaches, improving clinical outcomes and increasing limb salvage have become increasingly challenging. This prospective study investigated the associations of cilostazol treatment with clinical outcomes and predictive factors in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) and critical limb ischemia (CLI) after endovascular revascularization of the affected angiosome.

Methods: In this study, 172 consecutive patients with CLI (Fontaine levels III-IV) received cilostazol treatment after successful endovascular intervention according to the angiosome concept, and their primary patency rates and cardiovascular and amputation events during a 24-month follow-up period were assessed.

Department of Orthopedics, The University of Toledo Medical Center, MS 1094, 3000 Arlington Avenue, Toledo, Ohio 43614, US.

Introduction: Morel-Lavallée lesions (MLLs) are a post-traumatic degloving injury which the superficial fascia and skin are separated from the deep fascia through shearing forces. This process leads to the development of a potential space in which blood products and necrotic material can collect, potentially resulting in abscesses, cellulitis, or osteomyelitis. Most of these cases occur at the greater trochanter, gluteal musculature, proximal femur, and around the knee. Read More

Cutaneous metastases: A great imitator.

Department of Dermatology, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, USA. Electronic address:

Neoplastic cells originating from a primary cancer can uncommonly spread to the skin, where they suggest a poor prognosis for the patient. In women, melanoma, breast, ovarian, oral cavity, and lung are the most common primary sources; in men, melanoma, lung, colon, and squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck predominate. The classic presentation of cutaneous metastases is a firm, painless, flesh-colored to an erythematous dermal nodule (or nodules); however, several other presentations, including inflammatory, cicatricial, and bullous lesions, have been reported.

Ligaclip for Preauricular Skin Tags in the Newborn.

Eur J Pediatr Surg 2020 Jun 8. Epub 2020 Jun 8.

Division of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II Scuola di Medicina e Chirurgia, Federico II University, Naples, Campania, Italy.

Introduction:  Skin tags are benign lesions, that often represent only an aesthetic problem; if subjected to trauma, they can occasionally bleed with possible infection and pain. When they occur in the preauricular region, attention should be paid to the diagnosis and approach; in fact, controversy exists in the differential diagnosis between hair follicle nevi, accessory tragus, and skin tag. Misdiagnosis and failure of treatment can lead to serious consequences, such as chondritis. Read More
