Sezary syndrome (SS) is a primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) characterized by erythroderma, lymphadenopathy and leukemic involvement of the peripheral blood. The high relapse rates and a poor prognosis complicate its clinical course and treatment. The phenotypic characterization and genomic/transcriptomic approaches revealed high heterogeneity of Sezary cells, identifying a wide spectrum of biomarkers implicated in the development of this lymphoma.

Mycosis fungoides (MF) represents the majority of the primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL). Most have early stage MF with localised patches and plaques, which has a favourable survival outcome, but nearly a quarter progress to late stage with tumours, erythroderma, and systemic involvement. Management is based on stage directed treatment with early stage MF (IA-IIA) using skin directed therapies (SDTs), including topical corticosteroids (TCS), chlormethine or retinoids, phototherapy, and radiotherapy (localised or total skin electron beam therapy).

Sézary syndrome (SS) is defined by erythroderma and circulating atypical T cells, with or without lymphadenopathy. Recently, Thompson et al. identified a distinct population of SS patients with an atypical presentation: a high blood tumor burden of Sézary cells fulfilling criteria for SS but without fulfilling the criteria for erythroderma at the diagnosis.

Sézary syndrome (SS) is a rare form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma often refractory to treatment. SS is defined as adenopathy, erythroderma with high numbers of atypical T cells. This offers an opportunity for new interventions and perhaps antibody-based therapeutic by virtue of its high expression of the TNFR2 oncogene on the tumor cells and on T-regulatory cells (T).

Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) are a heterogenous group of non-Hodgkin lymphomas arising in the skin. Mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common variant, is characterised by clonal proliferation of skin residing malignant T-cells. Initially appearing with erythematous patches and plaques it follows a chronic course with progression to cutaneous tumours and extracutaneous involvement in some patients. Read More

Erythroderma is an inflammatory skin syndrome that involves desquamation and erythema of more than 90% of the body surface area. It represents a final clinical endpoint for many adult dermatological conditions. The most frequent cause of erythroderma is psoriasis followed by eczematous conditions, drug-induced reactions, pityriasis rubra pilaris and cutaneous T-cell lymphomas. 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

We report a case of a two-year-old boy presented with intractable pruritus, scaling, dry skin and generalized eczematous lesions resistant to atopic dermatitis therapy. Netherton syndrome misdiagnosed as atopic dermatitis due to the presence of eczematous skin lesions and allergic problems. Read More

The erythrodermic ulcerated form of mycosis fungoides (MF) is exceptional, and treatment of refractory cases is therefore very challenging. Brentuximab Vedotin (BV) is a monoclonal antibody combined with monomethyl auristatin E, recently approved for the treatment of refractory cutaneous T-cell lymphoma with CD30 expression. We report in this article a case of refractory MF in a 56 year-old man with a long story of large plaque parapsoriasis, as revealed by a psoriasiform erythroderma, treated initially with CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicine, vincristine and prednisone) polychemotherapy inducing a two year complete response.

Erythrodermic psoriasis is a severe variant of psoriasis characterized by prominent erythema, affecting the entire body surface. Management of erythrodermic psoriasis is difficult, not standardized, and often ineffective. As clinical studies are lacking, reporting of clinical experience with secukinumab may help to gather insight in this field. Read More

Background: Skin inflammation causes vasodilation and increased vascular permeability, which may result in decreased blood pressure and peripheral edema. Patients with erythroderma usually compensate for low blood pressure with fluid retention and increased cardiac output. However, if the heart cannot support increased cardiac output, blood pressure will stay low, resulting in severe compensatory fluid retention, which leads to decompensated congestive heart failure, and pulmonary edema.

Dendritic cells (DCs) play a key role not only in the initiation of primary immune responses, but also in the development and maintenance of immune tolerance. Numerous protocols have been developed to generate tolerogenic DCs (tolDCs) ex vivo, and the therapeutic efficacy of ex vivo-generated tolDCs has been demonstrated in autoimmune disease animal models. Based on successes in small animal models, several clinical trials have been completed or are on-going in patients with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and Crohn's disease.
