    Cutaneous Manifestations of Scleroderma and Scleroderma-Like Disorders: a Comprehensive Review.
    Clin Rev Allergy Immunol 2017 Jul 16. Epub 2017 Jul 16.
    Section of Dermatology, Department of Medical Sciences and Public Health, University of Cagliari, Cagliari, Italy.
    Scleroderma refers to an autoimmune connective tissue fibrosing disease, including three different subsets: localized scleroderma, limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis, and diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis with divergent patterns of organ involvement, autoantibody profiles, management, and prognostic implications. Although systemic sclerosis is considered the disease prototype that causes cutaneous sclerosis, there are many other conditions that can mimic and be confused with SSc. They can be classified into immune-mediated/inflammatory, immune-mediated/inflammatory with abnormal deposit (mucinoses), genetic, drug-induced and toxic, metabolic, panniculitis/vascular, and (para)neoplastic disorders according to clinico-pathological and pathogenetic correlations.

We collected 15 cases of pseudolymphomatous cLE other than lupus panniculitis and lupus tumidus (M:F = 4:11; age range: 23-79 years; mean age: 50.9 years; median age: 57 years). Read More

    Alpha-1 antitrypsin Pi*SZ genotype: estimated prevalence and number of SZ subjects worldwide.
    Int J Chron Obstruct Pulmon Dis 2017 8;12:1683-1694. Epub 2017 Jun 8.
    Pneumology Department, Hospital Universitari Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona, Spain.
    The alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) haplotype Pi*S, when inherited along with the Pi*Z haplotype to form a Pi*SZ genotype, can be associated with pulmonary emphysema in regular smokers, and less frequently with liver disease, panniculitis, and systemic vasculitis in a small percentage of people, but this connection is less well established. Since the detection of cases can allow the application of preventive measures in patients and relatives with this congenital disorder, the objective of this study was to update the prevalence of the SZ genotype to achieve accurate estimates of the number of Pi*SZ subjects worldwide, based on studies performed according to the following criteria: 1) samples representative of the general population, 2) AAT phenotyping characterized by adequate methods, and 3) selection of studies with reliable results assessed with a coefficient of variation calculated from the sample size and 95% confidence intervals. Studies fulfilling these criteria were used to develop tables and maps with an inverse distance-weighted (IDW) interpolation method, to provide numerical and geographical information of the Pi*SZ distribution worldwide.

    Case Rep Dermatol 2017 Jan-Apr;9(1):80-85. Epub 2017 Mar 21.
    aDepartment of Dermatology, Université Paul Sabatier-Toulouse III et Institut Universitaire du Cancer de Toulouse, Toulouse, France.
    The combination of MEK inhibitor (cobimetinib, trametinib) and BRAF inhibitor (vemurafenib, dabrafenib) is now the first-line treatment in patients with BRAF V600-mutated metastatic melanoma. This association reduces cutaneous adverse events induced by BRAF inhibitors alone, including photosensitivity, hand-foot syndrome, hyperkeratosis, alopecia, skin papillomas, keratoacanthomas, and squamous-cell carcinomas. While panniculitis has exceptionally been reported with BRAF inhibitors, this rare side effect has never been described with the use of MEK inhibitors. Read More

    Cutaneous Manifestations of Medium- and Large-Vessel Vasculitis.
    Clin Rev Allergy Immunol 2017 May 26. Epub 2017 May 26.
    Université Pierre et Marie Curie-Paris VI, Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, Service de Dermatologie-Allergologie, Hôpital Tenon, 4 rue de la Chine, 75020, Paris, France.
    Dermatologic manifestations are observed in almost all systemic vasculitides, even in large-and medium-vessel vasculitides, although such vessels are not found in the skin. Cutaneous manifestations may be related to a direct skin localization of the systemic vasculitis or a non-specific process associated with the vasculitis. According to the 2012 International Chapel Hill consensus, the two major variants of large-vessel vasculitides are Takayasu arteritis and giant-cell arteritis. Read More
