Dermatologic manifestations of pediatric cardiovascular diseases: Skin as a reflection of the heart.

Pediatr Dermatol 2021 Nov 1;38(6):1461-1474. Epub 2021 Nov 1.

Dermatology Associates of West Michigan, Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA.

Cutaneous disease can often be an initial clue of an underlying cardiovascular disease. Many congenital conditions (ie, Noonan syndrome with multiple lentigines, Carney complex, and Fabry disease) and acquired conditions may present initially with specific cutaneous features that should prompt clinicians to conduct a full cardiac workup. Given the extensive number of conditions with both cardiovascular and cutaneous findings, this review will focus on diseases with cardiocutaneous pathology with hopes of raising clinician awareness of these associations to decrease morbidity and mortality, as several of these diseases often result in fatal outcomes.

The emergence of targetable MEKanisms in sporadic lymphatic disorders.

EMBO Mol Med 2020 10 18;12(10):e12822. Epub 2020 Sep 18.

Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine, University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH, USA.

Sporadic lymphatic diseases are orphans among orphans in the medical community, a diverse collection of disorders at the intersection of cardiac, gastrointestinal, pulmonary, dermatologic, and oncologic disease that receives only passing attention in medical school and that no subspecialty in medicine fully embraces as its own. They often present in a confusing and illusive manner, with a fractured bone, expectoration of blood or a branching airway cast, a swollen limb or a collection of chylous material; protean manifestations that can challenge even the most expert diagnostician. Yet many of these acquired disorders have been discovered to have a targetable genetic basis, and as the case report of Foster et al (2020) demonstrates, the sedulous clinician-patient dyad can be rewarded with an almost miraculous result when the molecular pathogenesis of the disease is pursued and an exquisitely targeted therapy is administered.

Extrapulmonary manifestations of COVID-19.

Nat Med 2020 07 10;26(7):1017-1032. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, New York, NY, USA.

Although COVID-19 is most well known for causing substantial respiratory pathology, it can also result in several extrapulmonary manifestations. These conditions include thrombotic complications, myocardial dysfunction and arrhythmia, acute coronary syndromes, acute kidney injury, gastrointestinal symptoms, hepatocellular injury, hyperglycemia and ketosis, neurologic illnesses, ocular symptoms, and dermatologic complications. Given that ACE2, the entry receptor for the causative coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, is expressed in multiple extrapulmonary tissues, direct viral tissue damage is a plausible mechanism of injury.
