Verrucous sarcoidosis: a diagnosis to keep in mind.

Pan Afr Med J 2020 29;36:228. Epub 2020 Jul 29.

Department of Dermatology, Farhat Hached University Hospital, Sousse, Tunisia.

Skin manifestations of sarcoidosis occur in up to 30% of cases, and may be the sentinel sign of the disease, with the skin being sometimes exclusively affected. While this may facilitate an early dermatologic diagnosis, heterogeneity in the cutaneous morphologies of sarcoidosis complicates recognition and affirms its reputation as a "great imitator". Here, we present a case of a verrucous version of sarcoidosis that may be misdiagnosed because it can mimic other inflammatory and neoplastic skin disorders. Read More

Extrapulmonary manifestations of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 infection.

J Med Virol 2021 05 1;93(5):2645-2653. Epub 2020 Dec 1.

Department of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Coronavirus disease 2019, the infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2, has resulted in a global pandemic with unprecedented health, societal, and economic impact.

Then, the focus moved toward the impact of the prolonged use of personal protective measures in both healthcare workers and patients. In the meantime, attention is increasingly paid to dermatology as a result of the concern for certain groups of dermatologic patients, including those whose condition may worsen by the thorough disinfection measures and those treated with immunosuppressants or immunomodulators.
