Multifocal Osteomyelitic Tuberculosis at Rare Locations with Metastatic Tuberculosis Abscess.

Am J Case Rep 2019 Apr 12;20:503-507. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Department of Dermato-Venerology, Universitas Padjadjaran - Hasan Sadikin General Hospital, Bandung, West Java, Indonesia.

BACKGROUND Multifocal tuberculosis (TB) with more than 1 tuberculous osteoarticular lesion is rare. Furthermore, metastatic tuberculous abscess (MTA) is also a very rare manifestation of cutaneous TB in children. A non-specific, often subtle, early clinical presentation in conjunction with a low prevalence rate constitute obstacles for diagnosis. Read More

Authors:
Tarun Kumar Jain

Clin Nucl Med 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

From the Department of Nuclear Medicine and PET, Mahatma Gandhi Medical College & Hospital, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.

The present article presented a 47-year-old woman with areas of nodular swelling and discoloration involving bilateral lower limbs since 12 months. Biopsy from skin lesions revealed erythema nodosum. As erythema nodosum can be secondary to multiple etiologies, whole-body F-FDG PET/CT was performed to assess the disease distribution and guide the site of biopsy. Read More

Topical Delivery of Artemisone, Clofazimine and Decoquinate Encapsulated in Vesicles and Their In vitro Efficacy Against Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

AAPS PharmSciTech 2019 Jan 2;20(1):33. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Centre of Excellence for Pharmaceutical Sciences, North-West University, Private Bag X6001, Potchefstroom, 2520, South Africa.

Vesicles are widely investigated as carrier systems for active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). For topical delivery, they are especially effective since they create a "depot-effect" thereby concentrating the APIs in the skin. Artemisone, clofazimine and decoquinate were selected as a combination therapy for the topical treatment of cutaneous tuberculosis. Read More

Liver Transplantation for Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia.

J Atheroscler Thromb 2019 Feb 15;26(2):121-127. Epub 2018 Dec 15.

Diabetes and Lifestyle-related Disease Center, Fukujuji Hospital, Japan Anti-Tuberculosis Association.

Pharmacological treatments to decrease low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (LDL-C) have limited effects on patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH). Since LDL receptors are located mainly in the liver, liver transplantation is considered to be the only way to correct the hepatic cholesterol metabolism abnormalities in HoFH. Liver transplantations, including those combined with heart transplantation, for HoFH have been increasing since 1984, making this a globally established therapeutic option for HoFH. Read More

The role of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the etiology and pathogenesis of cutaneous tuberculosis is controversial because of the difficulties associated with demonstrating the presence of these mycobacteria in tuberculid cutaneous lesions by routinely available microbiological and histological techniques. In this study, we aimed to demonstrate the presence of M. tuberculosis in cutaneous tuberculosis. Read More

Cutaneous Mycobacterial Infections.

Clin Microbiol Rev 2018 01 14;32(1). Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Servicio de Dermatología y Departamento de Micología, Hospital General de México, Mexico City, Mexico.

Humans encounter mycobacterial species due to their ubiquity in different environmental niches. In many individuals, pathogenic mycobacterial species may breach our first-line barrier defenses of the innate immune system and modulate the activation of phagocytes to cause disease of the respiratory tract or the skin and soft tissues, sometimes resulting in disseminated infection. Cutaneous mycobacterial infections may cause a wide range of clinical manifestations, which are divided into four main disease categories: (i) cutaneous manifestations of infection, (ii) Buruli ulcer caused by and other related slowly growing mycobacteria, (iii) leprosy caused by and , and (iv) cutaneous infections caused by rapidly growing mycobacteria.

Cutaneous Infection With Mycobacterium haemophilum in an Immunocompromised Patient.

Iran J Kidney Dis 2018 Oct;12(5):312-314

Infectious Diseases and Tropical Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Mycobacterium haemophilum is a fastidious nontuberculosis Mycobacterium that must be considered in the differential diagnosis of infections in immunocompromised patients. Mycobacterium haemophilum typically is a pathogen of the cutaneous or subcutaneous tissue and also presents as septic arthritis, osteomyelitis, pulmonary disease, and lymphadenitis. We report a 32-year-old man with past medical history of kidney transplantation, endocarditis, gastrointestinal bleeding, and hypertension, complaining of multiple painful nodular lesions since 3 months earlier.

Regulatory T cells antagonize proinflammatory response of IL-17 during cutaneous tuberculosis.

J Inflamm Res 2018 28;11:377-388. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Department of Dermatology, Safdarjung Hospital, New Delhi, India,

Background: The clinical forms of cutaneous tuberculosis (CTB) consist of a spectrum that reflects the host's immune response to ; it provides an ideal model to study the immunological dysregulation in humans. IL-17 plays an important role in initial immune response and is involved in both immune-mediated protection and pathology during infection. TGF-β producing regulatory T-cells (Tregs) are high in leprosy patients and responsible for immune suppression. Read More

Primary cutaneous nocardiosis: a diagnosis of consideration in a renal transplant recipient.

BMC Clin Pathol 2018 1;18. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

3Department of Nephrology and Renal Transplantation Medicine, Grande International Hospital, Kathmandu, Nepal.

Background: The cutaneous nocardiosis remains a diagnostic challenge: similar clinical presentations as of cutaneous diseases with different etiology-and the inherent difficulty in cultivating the pathogen.

Case Presentation: Herein, we describe a case of primary cutaneous nocardiosis in a renal transplant recipient; treated with anti-tubercular drugs due to misdiagnosis of cutaneous tuberculosis. On clinical examinations, a few red erythematous papules with erosions and crusting seen, over prior surgery scar of renal transplant. Read More

TNF inhibitors for psoriasis.

Semin Cutan Med Surg 2018 Sep;37(3):134-142

Kimberly and Eric J. Waldman Department of Dermatology, Icahn School of Medicine, New York, New York, USA.

Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α has been identified as a key cytokine mediating cutaneous inflammation in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. The TNF inhibitors (TNFi's) infliximab, adalimumab, and etanercept are efficacious, Food and Drug Administration-approved medications for the treatment of moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. Each drug has a unique pharmacological profile that can have therapeutic implications when choosing a particular TNFi for a patient. Read More

Mycobacterium decipiens sp. nov., a new species closely related to the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex.

Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2018 Nov 11;68(11):3557-3562. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

3​Emerging Bacterial Pathogens Unit, IRCCS San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Milano, Italy.

Two mycobacterial strains with close similarity to the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) were isolated from cutaneous lesions of patients in the USA and Italy. At the phenotypic level, similarities to the MTBC included slow growth rate, rough morphotype of the unpigmented colonies and nearly identical high-performance liquid chromatography profiles of mycolic acids. In contrast to the MTBC, the strains were niacin- and nitrate-negative, and catalase-positive both at 68 °C and in semi-quantitative tests. Read More
