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

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).

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.

The subciliary and skin pinch approaches are the most widely accepted techniques for treating dermatochalasis of the lower eyelid. Direct excision (DE) is an accepted method for treating festoons; however, it is not a popular technique for the treatment of dermatochalasis and pigment of the lower lid. DE of the lower lid offers a safe and excellent aesthetic result for dermatochalasis and pigment of the lower lid, without causing lower lid malposition, which can occur with more traditional methods.

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

Elastin, arterial mechanics, and cardiovascular disease.

Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 2018 Aug 6;315(2):H189-H205. Epub 2018 Apr 6.

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.

Effect of Orbicularis Muscle Resection during Blepharoplasty on the Position of the Eyebrow.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Apr 9;34(2):178-182. Epub 2018 Apr 9.

Department of Otolaryngology, Medical School, Federal University of Uberlandia, Uberlândia, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Dermatochalasis is a skin excess in the upper eyelid which may be associated with either an aesthetic and functional defect, blocking the peripheral vision. Upper blepharoplasty is the gold standard procedure for correction of dermatochalasis and to restore youthful contours to the periorbita. It is one of the most commonly performed procedures in aesthetic plastic surgery; however, there is still a lack of consensus about this procedure. Read More

Cutis laxa in a patient with 1p36 deletion syndrome.

J Dermatol 2018 Jul 3;45(7):871-873. Epub 2018 Apr 3.

Department of Dermatology, Shanghai Children's Medical Center, Shanghai Jiaotong University, School of Medicine, Shanghai, China.

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

Atypical Presentation of Gelsolin Amyloidosis in a Man of African Descent with a Novel Mutation in the Gelsolin Gene.

Am J Case Rep 2018 Mar 30;19:374-381. Epub 2018 Mar 30.

Division of Hematology/Oncology, Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Loma Linda, CA, USA.

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

[Update on upper eyelid blepharoplasty].

Ophthalmologe 2018 04;115(4):266-274

Augenklinik der LMU, Klinikum der Universität München, Campus Innenstadt, Mathildenstr. 8, 80336, München, Deutschland.

Background: Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is among the most frequent oculoplastic surgical procedures. It is often performed as one of the first esthetic surgical interventions by surgeons of various disciplines. While there is a high probability of happy and satisfied patients postoperatively, there are important potential surgical complications that should be prevented. Read More

Complex Phenotypes in Inborn Errors of Metabolism: Overlapping Presentations in Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation and Mitochondrial Disorders.

Pediatr Clin North Am 2018 04;65(2):375-388

Department of Pediatrics, University Hospitals Leuven, Leuven, Belgium; Hayward Genetics Center, Tulane University Medical School, New Orleans, LA, USA. Electronic address:

Congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG) and mitochondrial disorders have overlapping clinical features, including central nervous system, cardiac, gastrointestinal, hepatic, muscular, endocrine, and psychiatric disease. Specific abnormalities orienting the clinician toward the right diagnostic approach include abnormal fat distribution, coagulation abnormalities, together with anticoagulation abnormalities, hyperinsulinism, and congenital malformations in CDG. Diabetes, sensorineural deafness, and depression are very rare in CDG but common in mitochondrial disease. Read More

National Institutes of Health, National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, Bethesda, MD, USA. Electronic address:

Elastic fibers provide recoil to tissues that undergo repeated deformation, such as blood vessels, lungs and skin. Composed of elastin and its accessory proteins, the fibers are produced within a restricted developmental window and are stable for decades. Their eventual breakdown is associated with a loss of tissue resiliency and aging. Read More

Preoperative Use of Neuromodulators to Optimize Surgical Outcomes in Upper Blepharoplasty and Brow Lift.

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Aug;38(9):941-948

University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL.

Background: Upper eyelid dermatochalasis often triggers frontalis hyperactivity in an effort to elevate the upper lids away from the visual axis. Similarly, prior neuromodulator treatment of the brow depressors may cause false elevation of the brows, diminishing the extent of preoperative brow ptosis or dermatochalasis. Studies have quantified postoperative brow ptosis and recurrent dermatochalasis following upper blepharoplasty, but a methodology to predict the postoperative brow position remains to be elucidated.
