Two Cases of Multiple Epidermolytic Acanthomas Mimicking Verruca Vulgaris.

Ann Dermatol 2020 Dec 11;32(6):512-515. Epub 2020 Nov 11.

Department of Dermatology, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Epidermolytic acanthoma (EA) is a rare benign tumor, which usually appears as a solitary small papule. However, there are a few case reports of multiple EA, most of which occurs on the genital area. Cases of multiple EA may mimic verruca vulgaris, condyloma accuminatum, seborrheic keratosis, and bowenoid papulosis, and therefore, can be easily misdiagnosed. Read More

TNF Is Partially Required for Cell-Death-Triggered Skin Inflammation upon Acute Loss of cFLIP.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 Nov 23;21(22). Epub 2020 Nov 23.

Department of Dermatology and Allergology, University Hospital RWTH Aachen, Pauwelsstraße 30, 52074 Aachen, Germany.

cFLIP is required for epidermal integrity and skin inflammation silencing via protection from TNF-induced keratinocyte apoptosis. Here, we generated and analyzed cFLIP epidermal KO mice with additional TNF deficiency. Intriguingly, the ablation of TNF rescued the pathological phenotype of epidermal cFLIP KO from characteristic weight loss and increased mortality. Read More

Annular epidermolytic ichthyosis: a case report and literature review.

An Bras Dermatol 2020 Jul - Aug;95(4):484-489. Epub 2020 May 5.

Dermatology Service, Santa Casa de Misericórdia de Porto Alegre, Universidade Federal de Ciências da Saúde de Porto Alegre, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil. Electronic address:

Annular epidermolytic ichthyosis is a rare subtype of epidermolytic ichthyosis that is characterized by erythematous, polycyclic, and migratory scaly plaques accompanied by palmoplantar keratoderma. This report presents the case of an 8-year-old girl who developed migratory, erythematous, scaly plaques associated with palmoplantar keratoderma. The initial hypothesis was erythrokeratodermia variabilis et progressiva; however, the finding of epidermolytic hyperkeratosis in histopathological examination led to the diagnosis of annular epidermolytic ichthyosis.

Persistent Infectious Hyperkeratotic Dermatitis in Immunocompetent Epidermal-Mutant Mice.

Vet Pathol 2020 07 29;57(4):586-589. Epub 2020 Apr 29.

H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, Tampa, FL, USA.

During a previously reported program-wide outbreak, both immunocompetent depilated () mutant mice and transgenic mice that express the papillomavirus E6 oncoprotein became persistently infected with . An orthokeratotic, hyperkeratotic, acanthotic dermatitis developed in the -infected mice, which remained PCR-positive for >45 days prior to euthanasia as part of the program-wide eradication effort. Since both affected strains of mice have altered skin homeostasis, immune status or the presence of hair may not alone be sufficient to explain strain susceptibility to -related cutaneous disease.

Ichthyosis: A Road Model for Skin Research.

Acta Derm Venereol 2020 Mar 25;100(7):adv00097. Epub 2020 Mar 25.

Department of Medical Sciences/Dermatology, Uppsala University, SE-751 85 Uppsala, Sweden.

The understanding of monogenetic disorders of cornification, including the group of diseases called ichthyoses, has expanded greatly in recent years. Studies of the aetiology of more than 50 types of ichthyosis have almost invariably uncovered errors in the biosynthesis of epidermal lipids or structural proteins essential for normal skin barrier function. The barrier abnormality per se may elicit epidermal inflammation, hyperproliferation and hyperkeratosis, potentially contributing to the patient's skin symptoms. Read More

Mutations in KRT10 in epidermolytic acanthoma.

J Cutan Pathol 2020 Jun 19;47(6):524-529. Epub 2020 Feb 19.

Department of Dermatology, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

Background: Epidermolytic acanthoma (EA) is a rare acquired lesion demonstrating a characteristic histopathological pattern of epidermal degeneration referred to as epidermolytic hyperkeratosis (EHK). On histopathological analysis, EA appears nearly identical to inherited EHK-associated dermatoses such as epidermolytic ichthyosis and ichthyosis bullosa of Siemens. While it has been speculated that EA is caused by mutations in KRT10, KRT1, or KRT2 found in these inherited dermatoses, none have yet been identified. Read More
