Ataxia-telangiectasia: A review of clinical features and molecular pathology.

Pediatr Allergy Immunol 2019 Jan 27. Epub 2019 Jan 27.

Research Center for Immunodeficiencies, Pediatrics Center of Excellence, Children's Medical Center, Tehran, Iran.

Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is an autosomal recessive primary immunodeficiency (PID) disease that is caused by mutations in ataxia-telangiectasia mutated (ATM) gene encoding a serine/threonine protein kinase. A-T patients represent a broad range of clinical manifestations including progressive cerebellar ataxia, oculocutaneous telangiectasia, variable immunodeficiency, radiosensitivity, susceptibility to malignancies, and increased metabolic diseases. This congenital disorder has phenotypic heterogeneity, and the severity of symptoms varies in different patients based on severity of mutations and disease progression. Read More

Pediatric leukemia susceptibility disorders: manifestations and management.

Hematology Am Soc Hematol Educ Program 2017 12;2017(1):242-250

Clinical Genetics Branch, Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD.

The clinical manifestations of inherited susceptibility to leukemia encompass a wide phenotypic range, including patients with certain congenital anomalies or early-onset myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and some with no obvious medical problems until they develop leukemia. Leukemia susceptibility syndromes occur as a result of autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, or X-linked recessive inheritance, or de novo occurrence, of germline pathogenic variants in DNA repair, ribosome biogenesis, telomere biology, hematopoietic transcription factors, tumor suppressors, and other critical cellular processes. Children and adults with cytopenias, MDS, dysmorphic features, notable infectious histories, immunodeficiency, certain dermatologic findings, lymphedema, unusual sensitivity to radiation or chemotherapy, or acute leukemia with a family history of early-onset cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, or alveolar proteinosis should be thoroughly evaluated for a leukemia susceptibility syndrome.

Nivolumab Causing a Polymyalgia Rheumatica in a Patient With a Squamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.

J Immunother 2017 Mar 6. Epub 2017 Mar 6.

Departments of *Pharmacology †Pain and Palliative Care ‡Rheumatology ∥Pneumology, CHU of Caen §Department of General Medicine, Medical School, Normandie University, Caen, France.

The anti-programmed cell-death-1 antibody, nivolumab, has been recently approved for the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer. Although, today, immune-related adverse effects such as dermatologic, digestive, hepatic, and endocrine toxicities are well-known with immune checkpoint inhibitors, rheumatic diseases are less well described. Herein, we report the case of a patient without a history of arthritis who developed polymyalgia rheumatica after 13 cycles of nivolumab used for the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer.

[Dermatomyositis as the first manifestation of small cell carcinoma: case report and literature review].

Medwave 2016 Nov 15;16(10):e6609. Epub 2016 Nov 15.

Escuela de Medicina, Universidad de Valparaíso, Viña del Mar, Valparaíso, Chile; Servicio de Cirugía, Hospital Dr. Eduardo Pereira, Valparaíso, Chile.

Dermatomyositis is an autoimmune inflammatory myopathy associated with dermatologic findings. Its association with neoplasms is widely reported and has been shown to be higher in lung cancer, particularly small-cell carcinoma, probably as it originates from neuroendocrine cell precursors, as well as breast and ovarian cancer. The low frequency of dermatomyositis makes it difficult to suspect the underlying lesions among the diagnostic possibilities of systemic diseases with cutaneous manifestations. Read More

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.

Composite B-cell and T-cell lineage post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder of the lung with unusual cutaneous manifestations of mycosis fungoides.

Am J Dermatopathol 2012 Apr;34(2):220-5

Department of Pathology, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston Salem, NC, USA.

We present the case of a 17-year-old male kidney transplant recipient who presented initially with dermatologic symptoms and was found to have histologic changes in the skin that were consistent with mycosis fungoides. Shortly after this diagnosis was made, imaging studies demonstrated multifocal interstitial and airspace consolidation in both lungs. Physical examination revealed no lymphadenopathy or hepatosplenomegaly, but an open lung biopsy revealed an Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-negative monomorphic T-cell posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) with a concomitant EBV-positive B-cell PTLD involving the same lesion of the lung.

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

Positive Health Program at San Francisco General Hospital, University of California San Francisco, Building 80, Ward 84, 995 Potrero Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA.

Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) must be considered in the differential diagnosis for any patient infected with HIV who has begun ART in the preceding months. Distinguishing between manifestations of IRIS and active infection is of paramount importance and poses a diagnostic challenge to the provider in the acute care setting. Presentations of IRIS are often atypical for the precipitating pathogen, and novel presentations are likely. Read More

[Hereditary blistering diseases. Symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of epidermolysis bullosa].

Hautarzt 2009 May;60(5):378-88

Universitätsklinik für Dermatologie, Paracelsus Medizinische Privatuniversität (PMU), Salzburg.

Hereditary epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a term for a heterogeneous group of rare genetic disorders characterized by marked fragility of the skin and mucous membranes following minor trauma. Significant progress has been made in understanding the molecular basis of EB, which has far-reaching implications for an improved classification with consequences for prognosis, genetic counseling, DNA-based prenatal and preimplantation testing, and the development of future treatments including gene therapy. Besides mucocutaneous changes, EB leads to a number of systemic manifestations whose management requires multidisciplinary access. Read More
