Genital Herpes Zoster as Possible Indicator of HIV Infection.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2018 Dec;26(4):337-338

Associate Professor Suzana Ljubojević Hadžavdić, MD, PhD, Department of Dermatology and Venereology, University Hospital Center Zagreb, University of Zagreb School of Medicine, Šalata 4, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia;

Herpes zoster (HZ) is an acute, cutaneous viral infection caused by the reactivation of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) (1). It is a frequent medical condition with an incidence rate of 2-3 cases per 1000 person/years in the general population and 7-10 cases per 1000 person/years after the age of 50 (1,2). Risk factors and triggers for reactivation of HZV have not yet been determined precisely, but are likely to include malignancies, immune deficiencies, solid organ and bone marrow transplant recipients, autoimmune diseases, psychological conditions, emotional stress, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, and other patients receiving immunosuppressive therapies (1,3).

Development of Pityriasis Amiantacea after Valproic Acid Therapy.

Int J Trichology 2018 Sep-Oct;10(5):237-239

Department of Pathology, Northshore University Health System, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

Here, we present the case of a 16-year-old male who developed pityriasis amiantacea (PA) after the use of valproic acid. We propose that the keratinocyte proliferative activity of valproic acid mediated through the inhibition of glycogen synthase kinase-3β, and subsequent activation of the Wnt/β-catenin pathway could play a role in the development of PA. We additionally review the most relevant characteristics of this disease. Read More

Controversies in drug allergy: Testing for delayed reactions.

J Allergy Clin Immunol 2019 Jan 17;143(1):66-73. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Dermatology and Allergy Department, Tenon Hospital, Medecine Sorbonne University, Paris, France; Assistance publique-hopitaux de Paris, Paris, France.

Controversies exist with regard to in vivo approaches to delayed immunologically mediated adverse drug reactions, such as exanthem (maculopapular eruption), drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms, acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis, and fixed drug eruptions. In particular, widespread differences exist between regions and practice on the availability and use of intradermal and patch testing, the standard drug concentrations used, the use of additional drugs in intradermal and patch testing to help determine cross-reactivity, the timing of testing in relation to the occurrence of the adverse drug reaction, the use of testing in specific phenotypes, and the use of oral challenge in conjunction with delayed intradermal and patch testing to ascertain drug tolerance. It was noted that there have been advances in the science of delayed T cell-mediated reactions that have shed light on immunopathogenesis and provided a mechanism of preprescription screening in the case of HLA-B*57:01 and abacavir hypersensitivity and HLA-B*15:02 and carbamazepine Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis in Southeast Asian subjects.

Lichen planus and lichenoid dermatoses: Conventional and emerging therapeutic strategies.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2018 Nov;79(5):807-818

St. John's Institute of Dermatology, King's College London, Guy's Hospital, London, United Kingdom.

Having reviewed the diverse clinical subtypes of lichenoid disease and the postulated molecular basis thereof in the first article in this 2-part continuing medical education series, we discuss herein the existing and emerging treatment strategies in the most common clinical forms of lichenoid inflammation and provide an overview of their pharmacodynamics and evidence base. The scope of this review is not to exhaustively discuss treatment modalities for all lichenoid variants discussed in the previous article of this series. Instead, the focus will be on frequently encountered subtypes of lichen planus and on linking mechanisms of disease with mechanisms of drug action. Read More

Differential diagnosis of late-type reactions to injected local anaesthetics: Inflammation at the injection site is the only indicator of allergic hypersensitivity.

Contact Dermatitis 2019 Feb 11;80(2):118-124. Epub 2018 Oct 11.

Department of Dermatology and Allergy, University Hospital, Würzburg, Germany.

Background: Anaphylaxis-like reactions developing within a few minutes are the most frequent complications of subcutaneous or submucosal injections of local anaesthetics (LAs), and topically applied LAs are potential contact allergens. In addition, injected LAs have been reported to induce delayed reactions, including local inflammation at the injection site, and various general symptoms.

Objectives: To assess the frequency and symptoms of late-type hypersensitivity occurring several hours after LA injections. Read More
