Epidermolytic acanthoma is a rare benign lesion that most often presents as a solitary or multiple small papular lesions on the trunk, face, limbs or external male genitalia. Only a small number of cases have been reported occurring on the vulva and clinically and histologically they may mimic and be misdiagnosed as viral warts. We report 2 cases of multiple epidermolytic acanthomas localized to the vulva. Read More

Nevus comedonicus is a rare cutaneous follicular hamartoma, characterized by the clustering of papules with firm, blackened horny buffers. It is usually present at birth or during childhood, although few cases of late-onset disease have been described. We present a case of postmenopausal-onset nevus comedonicus in a 55-year-old white woman without relevant medical history. Read More

Mutations in keratin genes underlie a variety of epidermal and nonepidermal cell-fragility disorders, and are the genetic basis of many inherited palmoplantar keratodermas (PPKs). Epidermolytic PPK (EPPK) is an autosomal dominant disorder that can be due to mutations in the keratin 1 gene, KRT1. Epidermolytic ichthyosis (EI), the major keratinopathic ichthyosis, is characterized by congenital erythroderma, blistering and erosions of the skin. Read More

Context: - Histologic distinction between condyloma acuminatum and various benign and malignant condyloma-like lesions in the anogenital area poses a common diagnostic challenge to pathologists across subspecialties.
Objective: - To review the overlapping and distinguishing features of condyloma acuminatum and its mimics, and to clarify confusing terminology and diagnostic criteria for problematic entities.
Data Sources: - A review of the literature on condyloma acuminatum (ordinary and giant types), verrucous carcinoma, warty/warty-basaloid high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion and squamous cell carcinoma, papillary squamous cell carcinoma, bowenoid papulosis, verruca vulgaris, epidermolytic acanthoma, and verruciform xanthoma was performed.

CRISPR/Cas9 has been confirmed as a distinctly efficient, simple-to-configure, highly specific genome-editing tool that has been used to treat monogenetic disorders. Epidermolytic palmoplantar keratoderma (EPPK) is a common autosomal dominant keratin disease resulting from dominant-negative mutation of the KRT9 gene, and it has no effective therapy. We performed CRISPR/Cas9-mediated treatment on a knockin (KI) transgenic mouse model that carried a small indel heterozygous mutation of Krt9, c. Read More

Annular epidermolytic ichthyosis (AEI; Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man [OMIM]# 607602) is a rare subtype of epidermolytic ichthyosis that is characterized by polycyclic, migratory erythematous and scaly plaques. It typically results from dominant mutations in the keratin 1 or keratin 10 genes. We present the case of a 5-year-old girl who developed intermittent eruptions of pink, round, scaly, migratory plaques with palmoplantar keratoderma and was originally diagnosed with erythrokeratodermia variabilis et progressiva (EKVP).

Long-term systemic treatment with acitretin for severe hyperkeratotic disorders is needed to maintain quality of life of afflicted patients, but treatment has been limited owing to its potential side-effects including skeletal malformations, particularly for children during their growth and development. A retrospective investigation was conducted with three children afflicted with a severe hyperkeratotic disorder, namely Darier's disease, bullous ichthyosiform erythroderma or lamellar ichthyosis, who were continuously maintained on 0.2-0.

A non-epidermolytic ichthyosis has been identified in Golden Retrievers due to a variant in the gene, and a genetic test is available to detect wild-type, heterozygous and homozygous dogs. The aims of this study were to investigate the prevalence of the gene variant in Golden Retrievers used for breeding and to provide more information to breeders in order to restrict the spread of this disease. Clinical examination and assessment of the genotype using PCR testing of oral swabs were performed in 48 breeding Golden Retrievers. Read More

Ichthyosis Hystrix of Curth-Macklin (IH-CM) is a rare manifestation of epidermolytic ichthyosis (EI) that is characterised by generalised spiky or verrucous hyperkeratosis. The disorder is further distinguished by the presence of binucleated cells in the affected skin, whereas epidermolysis and clumping of tonofilaments, as seen in EI, are absent. While IH-CM is associated with mutations in the keratin 1 (KRT1) gene, reports to date have indicated that mutations in the KRT1 gene result in an aberrant and truncated protein tail, essentially affecting the function of the V2 domain.

Hereditary ichthyoses are due to mutations on one or both alleles of more than 30 different genes, mainly expressed in the upper epidermis. Syndromic as well as nonsyndromic forms of ichthyosis exist. Irrespective of etiology, virtually all types of ichthyosis exhibit a defective epidermal barrier that constitutes the driving force for hyperkeratosis, skin scaling, and inflammation. Read More

Background: Several autosomal dominant disorders may manifest in mosaic patterns with cutaneous involvement. Genomic mosaicism results from postzygotic autosomal mutations, giving rise to clonal proliferation of two genetically distinct cell groups, which clinically present as lesions following the lines of Blaschko.

Epidermolytic ichthyosis (EI) is a rare disorder of cornification caused by mutations in KRT1 and KRT10, encoding two suprabasal epidermal keratins. Because of the variable clinical features and severity of the disease, histopathology is often required to correctly direct the molecular analysis. EI is characterized by hyperkeratosis and vacuolar degeneration of the upper epidermis, also known as epidermolytic hyperkeratosis, hence the name of the disease. Read More
