Elevated neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio as an indicator of secondary erythema nodosum, a retrospective observational study

Turk J Med Sci 2019 Apr 18;49(2):624-634. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Background/aim: Erythema nodosum (EN) is an inflammatory disorder of subcutaneous tissue. Although etiopathogenesis of the disease is unknown, many predisposing factors such as infections, systemic disease, and drugs have been identified. Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been shown to be a novel inflammatory marker in many dermatological diseases. Read More

Authors:
Hiroyuki Okamoto

Brain Nerve 2019 Apr;71(4):345-349

Department of Dermatology, Kansai Medical University.

Cutaneous lesions of sarcoidosis show varied clinical features. They are categorized into specific types; skin sarcoid, scar infiltrations with granulomas and foreign bodies, and non-specific lesions like erythema nodosum. Identification of the cutaneous lesions is important for the diagnosis of sarcoidosis, because they are an easily accessible source of tissue for histologic examination. Read More

Adalimumab in the treatment of pediatric Behçet's disease: case-based review.

Rheumatol Int 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Department of Pediatric Rheumatology, National Research Center of Mother and Child Health, University Medical Center, Astana, Kazakhstan.

Behçet's disease (BD) is a systemic vasculitis affecting prominently the veins, which is usually diagnosed in adulthood, but can occur in children younger than 16 years in about 4-26% of cases. The therapy is based on several immune-suppressive drugs; in case of inadequate control and/or complications, the biologic therapy with anti-TNF drugs has been successfully used in adults. Here, we reported one pediatric case of BD with systemic (persistent/recurrent high fever), skin and mucosal manifestations (recurrent aphthous stomatitis, anal/penile ulcers, erythema nodosum and papulo-pustules), that were unresponsive to the conventional treatment with steroids and colchicine; however, he was successfully treated with adalimumab.

Neutrophils in Leprosy.

Front Immunol 2019 19;10:495. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Leprosy Laboratory, Oswaldo Cruz Institute, FIOCRUZ, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Leprosy is an infectious disease caused by the intracellular bacillus that mainly affects the skin and peripheral nerves. One of the most intriguing aspects of leprosy is the diversity of its clinical forms. Paucibacillary patients are characterized as having less than five skin lesions and rare bacilli while the lesions in multibacillary patients are disseminated with voluminous bacilli. Read More

Department of General Surgery and Urology, Faculty of Medicine, Jordan University of Science and Technology, Jordan. Email:

Objectives: There is no consensus regarding the surgical or immunosuppressive treatment of idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM). This study aimed to introduce a clinical classification system for IGM that might facilitate its treatment and predict recurrence. Methods: We analyzed the management of 68 patients with IGM at (Princess Basma Teaching Hospital and King Abdulla University Hospital (1994-2016) to find out if distinct patterns of presentation exist according to the following parameters: presence of a painful or painless breast mass, local inflammation, abscess formation, communication to the skin, and extra-mammary manifestation.

Department of Dermatology, Drug Hypersensitivity Clinical and Research Center, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taipei, Linkou, Keelung, Taiwan.

Azathioprine (AZA) is a thiopurine-derived immunosuppressant commonly used in autoimmune and immunobullous dermatoses. AZA-hypersensitivity syndrome is a rare, but potentially fatal, immune-mediated reaction occurring within four weeks of administration. The polymorphism of TPMT and NUDT15 gene has been shown to increase the risk of AZA-induced leukopenia . Read More

Whipple's disease is a rare infectious disease, which can affect various organ systems. Arthritis is a common symptom and therefore the infection is often misdiagnosed as seronegative rheumatoid arthritis. In rare cases an infection with Tropheryma whipplei can also cause skin lesions, such as subcutaneous nodules, erythema nodosum or vasculitis. Read More

PLoS One 2019 25;14(1):e0210436. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University Hospital Zurich, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

Background/aims: Extraintestinal cutaneous manifestations of IBD represent a severe disease complication and an early and accurate treatment might positively influence the disease course. Using the patient collective of the Swiss IBD Cohort Study (SIBDCS), we analysed epidemiological as well as clinical factors being associated with the onset of pyoderma gangrenosum, erythema nodosum and aphthous ulcers in IBD patients.

Methods: We included 3266 SIBDCs patients, 1840 with Crohn's disease (CD) and 1426 with ulcerative colitis (UC) or IBD unclassified (IBDU) and analysed the association of cutaneous manifestations with age, age at diagnosis time, type of disease, gender, family history, HLA-allotype, smoking, intestinal disease activity, therapy and other extraintestinal manifestations (EIM).

Background: Erythema nodosum leprosum (ENL) is a systemic inflammatory complication occurring mainly in patients with lepromatous leprosy (LL) and borderline lepromatous leprosy (BL). Prednisolone is widely used for treatment of ENL reactions. However, it has been reported that prolonged treatment with prednisolone increases the risk for prednisolone-induced complications such as osteoporosis, diabetes, cataract and arteriosclerosis.

Neil Vargesson

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2019 Jan 18;44(1):88-95. Epub 2018 Oct 18.

School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK.

Thalidomide remains notorious as a result of the damage it caused to children born to mothers who used it to treat morning sickness between 1957 and 1961. The re-emergence of the drug to treat a range of conditions including erythema nodosum leprosum (a complication of leprosy) has led to a new generation of thalidomide damaged children being born in Brazil. Although thalidomide affects most of the developing tissues and organs of the body, the damage to the limbs is striking. Read More

Histopathology of vasculitis.

Reumatismo 2018 Oct 3;70(3):155-164. Epub 2018 Oct 3.
