Paraneoplastic musculoskeletal disorders: review and update for radiologists.

Skeletal Radiol 2022 May 23. Epub 2022 May 23.

Department of Radiology, University of Washington, 4245 Roosevelt Way NE, Box 354755, Seattle, WA, 98105, USA.

Rheumatic paraneoplastic syndromes are rare syndromes that occur at distant sites from the underlying tumor and may involve the bones, joints, fasciae, muscles, or vessels. In the absence of a known tumor, early recognition of a rheumatic syndrome as paraneoplastic permits dedicated work-up for, and potentially early treatment of an occult malignancy. Although there is a continuously growing list of paraneoplastic rheumatic disorders, not all of these disorders have a well-established association with a neoplastic process. Read More

Front Pediatr 2022 28;10:845424. Epub 2022 Apr 28.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, ASST Grande Ospedale Metropolitano Niguarda, Milan, Italy.

Subcutaneous fat necrosis of the newborn (SCFN) is a panniculitis that develops in fatty areas after fetal or perinatal distress. Prognosis is generally good with complete regression, but it can be complicated by metabolic abnormalities like hypoglycemia, hypertriglyceridemia, thrombocytopenia, and also potentially life-threatening hypercalcemia. Treatments have included hydration, furosemide and corticosteroids. Read More

Case Report: Generalised Panniculitis as a Post-COVID-19 Presentation in Aicardi-Goutières Syndrome Treated With Ruxolitinib.

Front Pediatr 2022 25;10:837568. Epub 2022 Apr 25.

Immunodeficiency Centre for Wales, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, United Kingdom.

Aicardi-Goutières syndrome (AGS) is a rare hereditary early-onset encephalopathy. The syndrome was first described in 1984, and is characterised by upregulation of the type I interferon (IFN) pathway, which is involved in the host immune response against viral infections, including SARS-CoV-2. Whilst defects in type I IFN pathways have been described in association with severe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), less is known about the outcomes of upregulation. Read More

Asia Pac J Clin Oncol 2022 May 4. Epub 2022 May 4.

Department of Dermatology, Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital, Kaohsiung City, Taiwan (ROC).

Subcutaneous panniculitis-like T cell lymphoma (SPTCL) is a rare cutaneous T cell lymphoma, which is indolent in nature but could claim life if not correctly diagnosed and promptly treated. SPTCL is usually presented clinically as painless subcutaneous and erythematous nodules over the trunk or extremities. Active clinical vigilance for these subcutaneous nodules or panniculitis-like lesions is warranted. Read More

Primary cutaneous diffuse large B-Cell lymphoma, leg type mimicking subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma in a COVID-19 setting: case report and review of literature.

Dermatol Online J 2021 Dec 15;27(12). Epub 2021 Dec 15.

Departamento de Docencia e Investigacion, Escuela de Medicina, Universidad Internacional del Ecuador, Quito, Ecuador Servicio de Patologia, Hospital Metropolitano, Quito, Ecuador.

Primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, leg type is a rare entity accounting for 4% of all primary cutaneous lymphomas whose clinical presentation encompasses a range of possibilities. COVID-19 has caused a delay in diagnosis of malignant neoplasms and consequently, this has resulted in poorer prognoses. A 62-year-old woman presented with two smooth-surfaced, mobile, well-circumscribed, oval, skin-colored nodules approximately one-cm in diameter with nonerythematous borders on the lower third of the left leg.

Subcutaneous Panniculitis-Like T-Cell Lymphoma Revealed By Immunophenotyping of Necrosis.

Am J Dermatopathol 2022 Apr 11. Epub 2022 Apr 11.

Department of Pathology, CHU Henri Mondor, Creteil, France.

Abstract: Subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma (SPTCL) is a rare but well-defined entity, often associated with autoimmune manifestations, generally with a good prognosis unless associated with hemophagocytic syndrome. Typically, the lymphoma cells rim the adipocytes and are characterized by a CD8+ cytotoxic phenotype. We report 2 cases of SPTCL where the first biopsies only showed subcutaneous fat necrosis without any lymphoma cell visible. Read More

B-cell lymphoma-2 downregulation is a useful feature supporting a neoplastic phenotype in mature T-cell lymphomas.

Hum Pathol 2022 Apr 19;125:48-58. Epub 2022 Apr 19.

The University of Chicago Medicine, Departments of Pathology, Section of Hematopathology, USA. Electronic address:

Normal T cells express high levels of B-cell lymphoma-2 (BCL2) protein, and data regarding BCL2 expression status and its diagnostic utility in T-cell lymphoma are scarce. We evaluated BCL2 expression in a series of mature T-cell lymphoproliferations (TCLs) including indolent and more recently recognized entities (follicular helper T-cell [TFH] lymphomas). Sixty-six neoplastic biopsies (60 patients) representing mature nodal, extranodal, and leukemia T-cell neoplasms were collected from three institutes (2 US and 1 Japan) and were compared with reactive T cells in 8 benign tissues/blood and 9 T cell-rich B-cell proliferations.

Presence of neutrophil extracellular traps in superficial venous thrombosis of Behçet's disease.

J Dermatol 2022 Apr 17. Epub 2022 Apr 17.

Department of Medical Laboratory Science, Faculty of Health Sciences, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan.

Behçet's disease (BD) has a heterogeneous spectrum of disease manifestations featuring the involvement of different organs and can be characterized with different symptoms depending on the clinical department in charge. We retrospectively reviewed BD patients seen at our hospital and investigated the presence of neutrophils producing neutrophil extracellular traps (NET) in those patients. Immunolabeling of myeloperoxidase and histone citrullination proteins was performed on skin biopsies from three BD patients who had skin biopsy-proven superficial vein thrombophlebitis in their erythema nodosum-like lesions.

A rare case of suspected lupus erythematous panniculitis as the presenting skin feature of juvenile dermatomyositis: A case report.

SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2022 25;10:2050313X221086317. Epub 2022 Mar 25.

Section of Pediatric Rheumatology, Department of Pediatrics, Alberta Children's Hospital, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada.

Juvenile dermatomyositis is a rare autoimmune myopathy of childhood, associated with systemic vasculopathy, primarily affecting the capillaries. Panniculitis is seen histologically in about 10% of patients with dermatomyositis; however, its clinical presentation is rare, with only 30 cases presented in the literature to date. The histopathology overlaps with other inflammatory disease states, and is almost identical to the panniculitis seen in lupus erythematous panniculitis. Read More

Hematopathology Laboratory, Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC), Tata Memorial Center, Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI) University, Mumbai, India.

Background: T-cell/NK-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (T/NK-NHL) is an uncommon heterogeneous group of diseases. The current classification of T/NK-NHL is mainly based on histopathology and immunohistochemistry. In practice, however, the lack of unique histopathological patterns, overlapping cytomorphology, immunophenotypic complexity, inadequate panels, and diverse clinical presentations pose a great challenge.

An Bras Dermatol 2022 May-Jun;97(3):326-331. Epub 2022 Mar 7.

Department of Dermatology, Faculty of Medicine, Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a Gram-negative bacillus that frequently causes septicemia, abscesses and infections in skin wounds. Panniculitis caused by this microorganism is unusual and there are few well-documented cases, none of them in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus.

Distinction between clonal and paraclonal cutaneous involvements in VEXAS syndrome.

Exp Hematol Oncol 2022 Feb 16;11(1). Epub 2022 Feb 16.

Laboratoire d'Hématologie, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire, Angers, France.

VEXAS (vacuoles, E1 enzyme, X-linked, auto-inflammatory, somatic) syndrome is an inflammatory disorder with hematological and systemic features. A recent study demonstrated that the dermal infiltrate in neutrophilic dermatosis from VEXAS patients is derived from the pathological UBA1-mutated myeloid clone. Neutrophilic dermatosis is, however, only one of the various skin involvements observed in VEXAS syndrome. Read More
