[Drug-induced toxic epidermal necrolysis with secondary aspergillus fumigatus infection: a case report].

Beijing Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban 2019 Oct;51(5):977-980

Department of Dermatological, Peking University People's Hospital, Beijing 100044, China.

Among the various drug induced dermatological entities toxic epidermalnecrolysis (TEN) and Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) occupy a primary place in terms of mortality. Toxic epidermal necrolysis also known as Lyell's syndrome was first described by Lyell in 1956. Drugs are by far the most common cause of toxic epidermal necrolysis, in which large sheets of skin are lost from the body surface making redundant the barrier function of the skin, with its resultant complications.

Clin Adv Periodontics 2019 03 28;9(1):24-28. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Central Ohio Skin & Cancer, Inc., Westerville, OH.

Introduction: Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is a relatively rare, potentially life-threatening autoimmune disease that, in most cases, has an unknown etiology. Medications for hypertension have been linked to the onset and exacerbation of PV-like symptoms. The diagnosis of medication-related PV can be challenging because it has an identical appearance to the clinical and histologic appearance of idiopathic PV and cases may not resolve after discontinuation of the drug.

Rowell's Syndrome Triggered by Omeprazole.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2019 Jun;27(2):124-126

Lyubomir Dourmishev MD, PhD, Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Medical University - Sofia, Bulgaria, 1st Georgi Sofiiski Blvd,. 1431 Sofia, Bulgaria.

Dear Editor, Rowell's syndrome is a rare disease, characterized by the appearance of erythema multiforme (EM)-like lesions in patients with lupus erythematosus. It was initially reported by Rowell (1) in 1963 and its existence as a separate clinical entity is currently under debate (2,3). A few cases may have been induced by drugs such as systemic antimycotics, antibiotics, anticonvulsants, and more recently proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Read More

Genetic testing for prevention of severe drug-induced skin rash.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 07 17;7:CD010891. Epub 2019 Jul 17.

Department of Molecular and Clinical Pharmacology, Institute of Translational Medicine, University of Liverpool, Centre for Personalised Medicine, Block A: Waterhouse Building, 1-5 Brownlow Street, Liverpool, UK, L69 3GE.

Background: Drug-induced skin reactions present with a range of clinical symptoms, from mild maculopapular skin rashes to potentially fatal blistering skin rashes - such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) or toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) - which may result in death. Milder reactions may be troublesome and lead to low drug compliance. The pathogenesis of these drug reactions is not yet fully understood; however, there is evidence that pretreatment genetic testing may help to predict and prevent these reactions in some cases.

Lichen Planus Pemphigoides Mimicking Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Nov;41(11):e144-e147

Cellular Pathology, St. George's University Hospital, London, United Kingdom.

Lichen planus pemphigoides (LPP) is an immunobullous disorder characterized by a combination of lesions resembling bullous pemphigoid and lichen planus (LP). Immunofluorescence studies typically show linear deposition of IgG and C3 along the basement membrane zone and circulating antibodies to the hemidesmosome protein BP180 also known as type XVII collagen. It is now recognized that drug-induced linear IgA disease may present with lesions mimicking toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN). Read More

Bullous pemphigoid.

An Bras Dermatol 2019 Mar-Apr;94(2):133-146. Epub 2019 May 9.

Department of Dermatology, Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo (SP), Brazil.

Bullous pemphigoid is the most frequent autoimmune bullous disease and mainly affects elderly individuals. Increase in incidence rates in the past decades has been attributed to population aging, drug-induced cases and improvement in the diagnosis of the nonbullous presentations of the disease. A dysregulated T cell immune response and synthesis of IgG and IgE autoantibodies against hemidesmosomal proteins (BP180 and BP230) lead to neutrophil chemotaxis and degradation of the basement membrane zone.

Shared Genetic Risk Factors Across Carbamazepine-Induced Hypersensitivity Reactions.

Clin Pharmacol Ther 2019 11 3;106(5):1028-1036. Epub 2019 Jul 3.

Department of Molecular and Clinical Pharmacology, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK.

Carbamazepine (CBZ) causes life-threating T-cell-mediated hypersensitivity reactions, including serious cutaneous adverse reactions (SCARs) and drug-induced liver injury (CBZ-DILI). In order to evaluate shared or phenotype-specific genetic predisposing factors for CBZ hypersensitivity reactions, we performed a meta-analysis of two genomewide association studies (GWAS) on a total of 43 well-phenotyped Northern and Southern European CBZ-SCAR cases and 10,701 population controls and a GWAS on 12 CBZ-DILI cases and 8,438 ethnically matched population controls. HLA-A*31:01 was identified as the strongest genetic predisposing factor for both CBZ-SCAR (odds ratio (OR) = 8. Read More

Department of Internal Medicine, Mount Sinai Hospital, Chicago, IL, USA.

BACKGROUND The hallmark of bullous pemphigoid (BP) is widespread tense blisters arising on normal or erythematous skin, often with marked pruritus, the diagnosis of which is confirmed by direct immunofluorescence (DIF). BP is an autoimmune process that can be induced, though rarely, by medications. Drug-induced BP often has atypical clinical presentation, which requires a good understanding of other dermatological conditions with similar presentations, in particular, bullous subtype of erythema multiforme.

Fluoxetine-induced Stevens-Johnson syndrome and liver injury.

J Clin Pharm Ther 2019 Feb 8;44(1):115-118. Epub 2018 Oct 8.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Department of Medicine, Cook County Health and Hospital System, Chicago, Illinois.

What Is Known And Objective: Drug-induced liver injuries (DILI) are overall rare and often associated with use of medications. Medications are also the most common aetiology of Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), but SJS is seldom seen concomitantly with liver injury. Many common drugs can cause either one of these conditions; however, there are no reported cases of concomitant DILI and SJS secondary to fluoxetine. Read More

Angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor blockers induced pemphigus: A case series and literature review.

Dermatol Ther 2019 01 11;32(1):e12748. Epub 2018 Oct 11.

Pharmacology Unit, Department of Science of Health, Magna Graecia University, Catanzaro, Italy.

Pemphigus is a group of autoimmune diseases characterized by the formation of erosions and/or flaccid bullae of the skin and/or mucosae. The definition "drug-induced pemphigus" has been coined to indicate cases of pemphigus with clinical, histological and immunopathologic features similar to those of the idiopathic disease but induced by systemic ingestion or local use of some drugs. The present authors analyzed a case series of three case reports with clinical and pharmacological features compatible with the diagnosis of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor blocker drug-induced pemphigus.

The influence of acute kidney injury on the outcome of Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis: The prognostic value of KDIGO staging.

PLoS One 2018 7;13(9):e0203642. Epub 2018 Sep 7.

Kidney Research Center, Department of Nephrology, Change Gung Memorial Hospital, Linkou branch, Taoyuan, Taiwan.

Background: Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), and SJS/TEN overlap syndrome are severe drug-induced cutaneous adverse reactions with high mortality. Acute kidney injury (AKI) was a common complication in an SJS/TEN group and noted as an independent risk factor for mortality in patients with SJS/TEN. To determine whether AKI staging can predict the outcome of patients with SJS/TEN, we compared the discriminative power of an AKI KDIGO staging system with that of SCROTEN, APACHE II, APACHE III, and SOFA.

Diffuse vesiculobullous eruption with systemic findings.

Dermatol Online J 2018 May 15;24(5). Epub 2018 May 15.

Naval Health Clinic Quantico, Quantico, Virginia.

Drug induced linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD) is a rare blistering disease that has been shown to be associated with the use of various medications. Although rarely seen together, some of the medications associated with LABD can lead to the syndrome drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS), which presents with fever, cutaneous eruption, and multi-organ involvement. We present a patient who developed fever and a generalized vesiculobullous eruption after recently starting amlodipine and meloxicam. Read More

Adverse Immunologically Mediated Oral Mucosal Reactions to Systemic Medication: Lichenoid Tissue Reaction/Interface Dermatitis-Stomatitis, Autoimmune Vesiculobullous Disease, and IgE-Dependent and Immune Complex Reactions.

J Immunol Res 2018 10;2018:7645465. Epub 2018 Jun 10.

Department of Periodontology and Oral Medicine, Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University, Pretoria, South Africa.

Drug-induced hypersensitivity immune reactions are exaggerated immunoinflammatory responses to allergenic components of the medications that occur in genetically susceptible subjects. The type of hypersensitivity immune response generated, whether antibody mediated or T cell mediated, or an immune complex reaction is determined by multiple factors, including the molecular characteristics of the allergen, the route of administration of the medication, the manner of presentation of the allergen by antigen-presenting cells to naïve T cells, the repertoire of the T cell receptors, and the cytokine profile within the microenvironment. This review deals with the clinical and histopathological aspects of adverse immunologically mediated oral mucosal reactions to systemic medication. Read More
