Cutaneous Complications in Recipients of Lung Transplants: A Pictorial Review.

Chest 2019 Jan 7;155(1):178-193. Epub 2018 Sep 7.

Respiratory Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH.

Lung transplant is now an established modality for a broad spectrum of end-stage pulmonary diseases. According to the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation Registry, more than 50,000 lung transplants have been performed worldwide, with nearly 11,000 recipients of lung transplants alive in the United States. With the increasing use of lung transplant, pulmonologists must be cognizant of the common as well as the unique posttransplant dermatologic complications. Read More

Universidade do Oeste Paulista (UNOESTE) - Presidente Prudente (SP), Brazil.

Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, infective endocarditis still shows considerable morbidity and mortality rates. The dermatological examination in patients with suspected infective endocarditis may prove very useful, as it might reveal suggestive abnormalities of this disease, such as Osler's nodes and Janeway lesions. Osler's nodes are painful, purple nodular lesions, usually found on the tips of fingers and toes. Read More

James J. Peter VA Medical Center/The Mount Sinai Hospital.

Lyme disease is a multisystem disorder affecting dermatologic, cardiac, nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Cardiac manifestations occur in about 5% of Lyme infections and stem from the involvement of the cardiac conduction system, resulting in varying degrees of sino-atrioventricular block. Occasionally, Lyme infection may also present with myopericarditis. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois; Department of Otolaryngology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois; Department of Surgery, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois. Electronic address:

While the overall incidence of emergencies in dermatologic surgery is low, emergent situations can occasionally pose a risk to patients undergoing such procedures. The clinical importance of several types of emergences related to systemic reactions, high energy systems, and trauma are reviewed, and relevant epidemiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, work-up, management, and prevention are discussed. Early detection of surgical emergencies can mitigate any associated adverse outcomes, thereby allowing the outstanding record of safety of dermatologic surgery to continue. Read More

Division of Rheumatology, Allergy and Clinical Immunology, University of California at Davis, Davis, CA 95616, USA. Electronic address:

Lyme disease was originally identified in Lyme, Connecticut, based upon an unusual cluster of what appeared to be patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. It was subsequently identified as a new clinical entity originally called Lyme arthritis based on the observation that arthritis was a major clinical feature. However, Lyme arthritis is now called Lyme disease based upon the understanding that the clinical features include not only arthritis, but also potential cardiac, dermatologic and neurologic findings.

Dermatologic manifestations and neuropathic symptoms in women with Fabry disease.

Acta Biomed 2014 May 9;85(1):81-4. Epub 2014 May 9.

Post-Graduate School of Neurology, University of Parma.

Fabry disease (angiokeratoma corporis diffusum universale) is a rare, progressive, X-linked lysosomal storage disease. Deficiency of the α-galactosidase A (α-gal A) enzyme leads to accumulation of neutral glycosphingolipids within vascular endothelial lysosomes of various organs, including skin, kidneys, heart, and brain (1). We herein describe the case of a 30-year-old female presenting two classic signs of Fabry disease, angiokeratomas and episodic acroparesthesias, in the absence of other clinical manifestations.

Neurological and ocular fascioliasis in humans.

Adv Parasitol 2014 ;84:27-149

Departamento de Parasitologia, Facultad de Farmacia, Universidad de Valencia, Valencia, Spain.

Fascioliasis is a food-borne parasitic disease caused by the trematode species Fasciola hepatica, distributed worldwide, and Fasciola gigantica, restricted to given regions of Africa and Asia. This disease in humans shows an increasing importance, which relies on its recent widespread emergence related to climate and global changes and also on its pathogenicity in the invasive, biliary, and advanced chronic phases in the human endemic areas, mainly of developing countries. In spite of the large neurological affection capacity of Fasciola, this important pathogenic aspect of the disease has been pronouncedly overlooked in the past decades and has not even appear within the numerous reviews on the parasitic diseases of the central nervous system.

The skin should not be considered as an isolated organ but rather as a definite functioning system that communicates with the internal environment. Skin signs of systemic diseases occur frequently and sometimes feature the first symptoms of an internal disease; furthermore, these manifestations may be the sole expressions of otherwise asymptomatic systemic disorders. A number of dermatologic signs, symptoms, and disorders can be invaluable as markers of systemic disease. Read More

Canine hypothyroidism may present with a wide range of clinical signs. The most common clinical signs are those of a decreased metabolic rate and dermatologic manifestations; however, many other clinical signs have been associated with hypothyroidism. There is strong evidence for a causal relation between hypothyroidism and a variety of neurologic abnormalities; however, the association between hypothyroidism and other manifestations, such as reproductive dysfunction, clinical heart disease, and behavioral abnormalities, is less compelling.

Nihon Rinsho Meneki Gakkai Kaishi 2005 Feb;28(1):4-9

Division of Rheumatology & Clinical Immunology, Department of Medicine, Jichi Medical School, Japan.

Neonatal lupus syndrome is a passively acquired autoimmune syndrome in which pathogenic autoantibodies (anti-SSA/Ro, anti-SSB/La, and both, or rarely anti-U(1)RNP antibodies) are transmitted from a mother to her fetus through the placenta. The major clinical manifestations in the infants are cardiac (congenital heart block), dermatologic (skin lesion), hepatic (elevated hepatic enzymes), and hematologic (cytopenia). Congenital complete heart block (CCHB) is irreversible, while noncardiac manifestations are transient, resolving by one-year-old of age without specific treatments. Read More

In the past year anecdotal evidence has emerged for the use of therapies that neutralize tumor necrosis factor-a in both ankylosing spondylitis and the dermatologic extraintestinal manifestations.
