Department of Dermatology, Xijing Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University, 127 Changle West Road, Xi'an, shaanxi, 710032, China. Electronic address:

Vitiligo is a cutaneous depigmentation disorder caused by the destruction of epidermal melanocytes. The generation and the skin infiltration of autoreactive CD8 cytotoxic T cells triggered by oxidative stress play a critical role in vitiligo. High-mobility group protein B1 (HMGB1) is a classic damage-associated molecular pattern (DAMP) molecule with strong proinflammatory effects in inflammatory reactions. Read More

Stress responses in stromal cells and tumor homeostasis.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY, USA; Sandra and Edward Meyer Cancer Center, New York, NY, USA; Department of Dermatology, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA; Université Paris Descartes/Paris V, Paris, France. Electronic address:

In most (if not all) solid tumors, malignant cells are outnumbered by their non-malignant counterparts, including immune, endothelial and stromal cells. However, while the mechanisms whereby cancer cells adapt to microenvironmental perturbations have been studied in great detail, relatively little is known on stress responses in non-malignant compartments of the tumor microenvironment. Here, we discuss the mechanisms whereby cancer-associated fibroblasts and other cellular components of the tumor stroma react to stress in the context of an intimate crosstalk with malignant, endothelial and immune cells, and how such crosstalk influences disease progression and response to treatment.

Hydroa vacciniforme: a distinctive form of Epstein-Barr virus-associated T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders.

Eur J Dermatol 2019 Feb;29(1):21-28

Department of Dermatology, Kawasaki Medical School,, Department of Dermatology, Kawasaki Medical School General Medical Center, Okayama, Japan.

Hydroa vacciniforme (HV) is a cutaneous subset of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated T/NK lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs). Our previous case series study clearly showed a clinical spectrum of EBV-associated T/NK LPDs including HV, hypersensitivity to mosquito bites (HMB), chronic active EBV infection (CAEBV), and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). Patients with HV are divided into two groups: a benign subtype designated "classic HV" (cHV) and more serious systemic HV (sHV), also called "HV-like LPD" in the 2017 World Health Organization (WHO) classification.

Department of Dermatology, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, ChinaArticle accepted on October 23, 2018.

Psoriasis is a chronic disfiguring skin condition which may be induced or exacerbated by stress. Heat shock proteins (HSPs), as molecular chaperones, play a central role in protein folding and cellular protein homeostasis. The many different functions of HSPs in the cell depend on the specific HSP involved. Read More

Staging of primary cutaneous follicle centre B-cell lymphoma: bone marrow biopsy, CD10, BCL2 and t(14;18) are not relevant prognostic factors.

Eur J Dermatol 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Dermatologie, Institut Universitaire du Cancer de Toulouse, Université Paul Sabatier, Hôpital Larrey et Oncopole, Toulouse.

Background: There is a certain degree of controversy as to whether bone marrow biopsy is required during the staging procedures for primary cutaneous follicle centre B-cell lymphoma (PCFCCL).

Objectives: Firstly, to determine extra-cutaneous involvement at initial diagnosis, in particular, based on bone marrow biopsy, and secondly, evaluate the phenotypic features associated with extra-cutaneous involvement during follow-up (in particular, the predictive value of BCL2 and CD10 coexpression and identification of t[14;18] in skin lesions, as well as bone marrow biopsy involvement at initial staging) in a cohort of patients with PCFCCL.

Materials & Methods: A bicentric retrospective study was established to investigate 75 cases of PCFCCL, for which 44 bone marrow biopsies were performed. Read More

Clinical factors influencing the response to intravenous immunoglobulin treatment in cases of treatment-resistant pyoderma gangrenosum.

J Dermatolog Treat 2019 Apr 18:1-13. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

a Department of Dermatology , Oregon Health & Science University, Center for Health & Healing , 3303 SW Bond Ave. Portland , Oregon 97239 , USA.

Background: Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a neutrophilic disorder which classically presents as chronic, painful ulcers on the lower extremities. There is evidence supporting a potential role for intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) as adjuvant therapy for treatment-resistant cases; however, it is unclear which patients will most benefit from this modality of treatment - an especially important consideration given the cost per infusion ($5,000-$10,000). Thus, we sought to identify the clinical characteristics of patients with refractory PG lesions who demonstrated complete healing when IVIG was incorporated into the therapeutic plan. Read More

Department of Medical Genetics, The Second Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, 410011, Hunan, China.

Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is a rare autosomal dominant disease characterized by the development of multiple jaw keratocysts and basal cell carcinomas (BCC) and accompanied by diverse phenotypes. The establishment of diagnosis lies on the identification of a heterozygous germline pathogenic variant in the patched homolog 1 gene (PTCH1). PTCH1 has alternative splicing and selective initial coding exon, leading to three types of encoding proteins (PTCHL, PTCHM and PTCHS). Read More

To further the progress of scientific research and expand the literature, authors and editors share a common goal of producing and reviewing innovative publications. However, as publication rates increase, so does the amount of detected plagiarism, including self-plagiarism. This concept, also referred to as text recycling, is defined as the repurposing of one's own previously published work in new publications without referencing the original source. Read More

We present the case of a 51-year-old Hispanic woman with an onset of painful, swollen, subcutaneous nodules on the face, most prominently on the right lower lip and both cheeks, after multiple self-injections of vitamin A oil.

In drug-induced LAD, certain uncommon and atypical clinical features can occur. In our patient, a 49-year-old woman with amlodipine-induced LAD, atypical features such as koebnerization and palmo-plantar involvement occurred. Read More
