Acquired Localized Cutis Laxa: A Case Report and the Role of Plastic Surgery.

Indian J Dermatol 2019 Jan-Feb;64(1):55-58

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, King George Medical University, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Cutis laxa is an uncommon connective tissue disorder affecting the elastin fibers leading to lax and pendulous skin and in generalized form can present with systemic involvement. Congenital cutis laxa is common in comparison to acquired cutis laxa and has varied inheritance patterns. Treatment is chiefly observation in congenital cutis laxa, and there is a paucity of literature on surgical management in acquired cutis laxa. Read More

Cutaneous Elastic Tissue Anomalies.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Feb;41(2):85-117

Department of Dermatology, Fundación Jiménez Díaz, Universidad Autónoma, Madrid, Spain.

After a review of the physiology in the formation and degradation of cutaneous elastic tissue, we describe the clinicopathologic disorders characterized by increased and decreased cutaneous elastic tissue. Cutaneous disorders characterized by increased and/or abnormal elastic tissue in the dermis include elastoma, also named nevus elasticus, dermatosis lenticularis disseminata, pseudoxanthoma elasticum, late-onset focal dermal elastosis, linear focal elastosis, elastoderma, elastofibroma dorsi, and elastosis perforans serpiginosa. In some of these conditions, the specific histopathologic diagnosis may be rendered with hematoxylin-eosin stain, whereas in other ones special elastic tissue stains are necessary to demonstrate the anomalies.

The Genetics of Pneumothorax.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Channing Division of Network Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, United States ;

A genetic influence on spontaneous pneumothoraces - those occurring without a traumatic or iatrogenic cause - is supported by several lines of evidence: 1) Pneumothorax can cluster in families (i.e. familial spontaneous pneumothorax); 2) Mutations in the FLCN gene have been found in both familial and sporadic cases; and 3) Pneumothorax is a known complication of several genetic syndromes.

Novel Mutation in a Patient With APLAID and Cutis Laxa.

Front Immunol 2018 14;9:2863. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

Department of Medicine, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom.

The auto-inflammation and phospholipase Cγ2 (PLCγ2)-associated antibody deficiency and immune dysregulation (APLAID) syndrome is a rare primary immunodeficiency caused by a gain-of-function mutation S707Y in the gene previously described in two patients from one family. The APLAID patients presented with early-onset blistering skin lesions, posterior uveitis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and recurrent sinopulmonary infections caused by a humoral defect, but lacked circulating autoantibodies and had no cold-induced urticaria, contrary to the patients with the related PLAID syndrome. We describe a new APLAID patient who presented with vesiculopustular rash in the 1st weeks of life, followed by IBD, posterior uveitis, recurrent chest infections, interstitial pneumonitis, and also had sensorineural deafness and cutis laxa.

A novel nonsense PIEZO2 mutation in a family with scoliosis and proprioceptive defect.

Neuromuscul Disord 2019 Jan 8;29(1):75-79. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Centre de Référence de Pathologie Neuromusculaire Nord/Est/Ile de France, Institut de Myologie, CHU La Pitié-Salpêtrière, APHP, Paris, France.

PIEZO2 mutations have been described in dominant arthrogryposis, but homozygous mutations of PIEZO2 may also be responsible for more complex clinical patterns, associating distal arthrogryposis, neonatal respiratory insufficiency, scoliosis and proprioceptive impairment. We report here two sisters presenting with these clinical and genetic features. They had a similar phenotype, with severe hypotonia and respiratory distress at birth, delayed acquisition of motor milestones and need of scoliosis surgery. Read More

A Transcriptome Study of Progeroid Neurocutaneous Syndrome Reveals POSTN As a New Element in Proline Metabolic Disorder.

Aging Dis 2018 Dec 4;9(6):1043-1057. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

2Department of Medical Research, Mackay Memorial Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Aging is a complex biological process. A study of pyrroline-5-carboxylate reductase 1 (PYCR1) deficiency, which causes a progeroid syndrome, may not only shed light on its genetic contribution to autosomal recessive cutis laxa (ARCL) but also help elucidate the functional mechanisms associated with aging. In this study, we used RNA-Seq technology to examine gene expression changes in primary skin fibroblasts from healthy controls and patients with mutations. Read More

Platelet-rich Plasma for Skin Rejuvenation and Treatment of Actinic Elastosis in the Lower Eyelid Area.

Cureus 2018 Jul 18;10(7):e2999. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Plastic Surgery, Waldkrankenhaus Bonn, Bonn, DEU.

Background Treatment of the lower eyelid region to rejuvenate the skin or treat actinic elastosis often proves difficult. Established treatment options, such as hyaluronic acid injections, botulinum toxin injections, microneedling, skin resurfacing (microdermabrasion, chemical peel (exfoliation), laser treatment), as well as blepharoplasties and autologous fat transfers, can be associated with significant risks and increased patient burden. Furthermore, they may not be effective for treating the signs of skin aging or actinic elastosis, including dark rings under the eyes, a lack of volume and cutis laxa. Read More

Whole exome sequencing analysis in severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Hum Mol Genet 2018 11;27(21):3801-3812

Channing Division of Network Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), one of the leading causes of death worldwide, is substantially influenced by genetic factors. Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency demonstrates that rare coding variants of large effect can influence COPD susceptibility. To identify additional rare coding variants in patients with severe COPD, we conducted whole exome sequencing analysis in 2543 subjects from two family-based studies (Boston Early-Onset COPD Study and International COPD Genetics Network) and one case-control study (COPDGene).

b Division of Medical Genetics , IRCCS-Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza , San Giovanni Rotondo , FG , Italy.

Introduction: Joint hypermobility (JH) is the hallmark of many hereditary soft connective tissue disorders, including Ehlers-Danlos syndromes and related disorders, disorders of the TGFβ-pathway, lateral meningocele syndrome, arterial tortuosity syndrome, and cutis laxa syndromes. Contemporary practice separates individuals with isolated, non-syndromic JH from patients with Mendelian syndromes and those with hypermobility spectrum disorders. The latter is a new nosologic entity grouping together individuals with JH and related musculoskeletal manifestations, but lacking inclusion criteria for well-defined and/or single-gene disorders.

Compound heterozygous mutations in two different domains of ALDH18A1 do not affect the amino acid levels in a patient with hereditary spastic paraplegia.

Neurogenetics 2018 May 12. Epub 2018 May 12.

Department of Clinical Genetics, Odense University Hospital, J. B. Winsløws Vej 4, 5000, Odense C, Denmark.

Mutations in ALDH18A1 can cause autosomal recessive and dominant hereditary spastic paraplegia and autosomal recessive and dominant cutis laxa. ALDH18A1 encodes delta-1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthetase (P5CS), which consists of two domains, the glutamate 5-kinase (G5K) and the gamma-glutamyl phosphate reductase (GR5P) domain. The location of the mutations in the gene has influence on whether the amino acid levels are affected. Read More

Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, Washington University , St. Louis, Missouri.

Large, elastic arteries are composed of cells and a specialized extracellular matrix that provides reversible elasticity and strength. Elastin is the matrix protein responsible for this reversible elasticity that reduces the workload on the heart and dampens pulsatile flow in distal arteries. Here, we summarize the elastin protein biochemistry, self-association behavior, cross-linking process, and multistep elastic fiber assembly that provide large arteries with their unique mechanical properties.

Chromosome 1p36 deletion is the most common subtelomeric deletion syndrome characterized by variable features including unique facial appearance, intellectual disability, developmental delay, cardiac defects, seizures and hypotonia. Here, we report a patient with developmental delay, dilated cardiomyopathy, seizures, hirsutism and cutis laxa who was diagnosed with 1p36 deletion syndrome by chromosome microarray analysis. This patient is the first reported case of 1p36 deletion syndrome associated with cutis laxa and our results suggest that the 1p36 region contains one or more genes relevant to cutis laxa. Read More

BACKGROUND Gelsolin amyloidosis is a very rare systemic disease presenting with a pathognomonic triad of corneal lattice dystrophy, cutis laxa, and polyneuropathy. The disease is mostly restricted to a Finnish population with known mutations (G654A, G654T) in exon 4 of the gelsolin gene. The mutations lead to errors in protein processing and folding, and ultimately leads to deposition of an amyloidogenic fragment in the extracellular space, causing the symptoms of disease. Read More

Acquired Cutis Laxa Associated with Light and Heavy Chain Deposition Disease.

Indian Dermatol Online J 2018 Jan-Feb;9(1):44-46

Department of Dermatology, Christian Medical College, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India.

Acquired cutis laxa (ACL) is a rare connective tissue disorder characterized by pendulous and coarsely wrinkled skin. There have been few cases of its association to monoclonal immunoglobulin deposition disease (MIDD), which constitutes the light chain (LCDD), heavy chain (HCDD), and light and heavy chain (LHCDD) deposition disease. MIDD predominantly involves the kidney. Read More

Incidental Detection of Bilateral Large Urinary Bladder Diverticulae on Tc99m Ethylene Dicysteine Renography with Single-photon Emission Computed Tomography-Computed Tomography.

Indian J Nucl Med 2018 Jan-Mar;33(1):79-81

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

The complementary anatomical and functional information provided by hybrid imaging with single-photon emission computed tomography-CT (SPECT-CT) is a very useful imaging tool in selected cases where anatomical information is lacking as in the scenario of dynamic renal scintigraphy. The authors present a case of a 5-year-old male child with symptoms suggestive of cutis laxa with urinary tract infection. The child underwent dynamic renal scintigraphy with Tc99m ethylene dicysteine for cortical function and drainage assessment. Read More

Ascending Aortic Aneurysm in a Child With Fibulin-4 Deficiency.

Ann Thorac Surg 2018 Feb;105(2):e59-e61

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya, Japan.

EFEMP2 (alias FBLN4) encodes extracellular matrix protein fibulin-4, and its mutation is associated with autosomal recessive cutis laxa type 1B and leads to severe aortopathy with aneurysm formation and vascular tortuosity. A 4-month-old child presented with a large ascending aortic aneurysm, and genetic testing revealed an EFEMP2 mutation. We achieved successful repair of the ascending aortic aneurysm at 33 months of age and report the macroscopic and microscopic findings. Read More

Cutis laxa and excessive bone growth due to de novo mutations in PTDSS1.

Am J Med Genet A 2018 03 17;176(3):668-675. Epub 2018 Jan 17.

Centre de Génétique Humaine, Université de Franche-Comté, Besançon, France.

The cutis laxa syndromes are multisystem disorders that share loose redundant inelastic and wrinkled skin as a common hallmark clinical feature. The underlying molecular defects are heterogeneous and 13 different genes have been involved until now, all of them being implicated in elastic fiber assembly. We provide here molecular and clinical characterization of three unrelated patients with a very rare phenotype associating cutis laxa, facial dysmorphism, severe growth retardation, hyperostotic skeletal dysplasia, and intellectual disability.

The subunit is the largest of 15 different subunits that make up the vacuolar H-ATPase (V-ATPase) complex, where it functions in proton translocation. In mammals, this subunit has four paralogous isoforms, 1-4, which may encode signals for targeting assembled V-ATPases to specific intracellular locations. Despite the functional importance of the subunit, its structure remains controversial. Read More
