Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis of infancy suppressed with cetirizine.

Pediatr Dermatol 2019 Feb 21. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Department of Dermatology, Kocaeli University School of Medicine, Kocaeli, Turkey.

Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis of infancy is a rare inflammatory disease characterized by recurrent, itchy sterile pustules mainly located on the scalp. Topical agents are mostly effective to suppress the symptoms in the majority of cases. However, systemic agents that are safe for long-term use are required for patients with widespread or resistant lesions. Read More

LICHENOID FOLLICULITIS OF THE SCALP IN FOUR PATIENTS WITH ICHTHYOSIFORM SKIN DISORDERS AND CICATRICIAL ALOPECIA.

J Cutan Pathol 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Dermatology, Federal Fluminense University, Antonio Pedro University Hospital, Marques de Parana Avenue, Niteroi, 24220-900, Brazil.

Ichthyosis is a heterogeneous group of inherited skin disorders characterized by a defect of keratinization. Patients diagnosed with lamellar ichthyosis (LI) and some ichthyosiform syndromes, such as the Conradi-Hünermann-Happle syndrome (CHHS), usually present with hair loss. Even though only few dermatologic complaints carry as many emotional overtones as hair loss, there is extremely little data available in the literature regarding scalp histopathologic features on ichthyosis.

Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) is a recurrent inflammatory dermatosis primarily involving hair follicles. Several subtypes of EPF have been described: Classic EPF, infantile EPF, and immunosuppression-associated EPF. Although classic EPF has a predilection for face, involvement of hairless areas such as palms and soles has been reported frequently. Read More

Facial pustules due to drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome/drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms may histopathologically mimic eosinophilic pustular folliculitis: A case report.

J Cutan Pathol 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Dermatology, Nara Medical University School of Medicine, Nara, Japan.

Pustules with facial and/or neck edema is one characteristic feature of drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome/drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DIHS/DRESS) at the early stage. Although several retrospective histopathologic studies on DIHS/DRESS have been reported, the detailed histopathologic findings of facial pustules for DIHS/DRESS are unavailable. We herein report a case of DIHS/DRESS with facial pustules that was histopathologically similar to eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF). Read More

Oral H1 antihistamines as 'add-on' therapy to topical treatment for eczema.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 Jan 22;1:CD012167. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Medical Sociology, Institute of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, University of Regensburg, Regensburg, Germany.

Background: The symptoms of eczema can lead to sleeplessness and fatigue and may have a substantial impact on quality of life. Use of oral H1 antihistamines (H1 AH) as adjuvant therapy alongside topical agents is based on the idea that combining the anti-inflammatory effects of topical treatments with the blocking action of histamine on its receptors in the skin by H1 AH (to reduce the principal symptom of itch) might magnify or intensify the effect of treatment. Also, it would be unethical to compare oral H1 AH alone versus no treatment, as topical treatment is the standard management for this condition. Read More

Premature Desquamation of the Inner Root Sheath in Noninflamed Hair Follicles as a Specific Marker for Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Dec 10. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

Dermatology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL.

Background: Premature desquamation of the inner root sheath (PDIRS) is considered one of the distinctive features in central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia (CCCA). However, PDIRS can be seen in other alopecia subtypes, and its utility in the diagnosis of CCCA has been debated. We aimed to examine a large cohort of alopecia cases for the presence of PDIRS in association with and without inflammation to determine whether PDIRS in noninflamed follicles can be used as a specific marker of CCCA.

Taxonomy and phylogeny of Cutibacterium (formerly Propionibacterium) acnes in inflammatory skin diseases.

Ann Dermatol Venereol 2019 Jan 15;146(1):26-30. Epub 2018 Dec 15.

Dermatology Department, Nantes University Hospital, CRCINA, CIC 1413, université de Nantes, 44093 Nantes, France.

Since its discovery, Propionibacterium acnes has undergone various name changes, and has been known since 2016, as Cutibacterium acnes. Herein we set out the history and rational of these taxonomic changes together with a description of a new genus, Cutibacterium, which includes five species within the cutaneous ecosystem. Modern microbiological techniques allow finer distinction between species and subspecies while also enabling the identification of separate subtypes within the population of Cutibacterium acnes.

Genome wide association study to identify predictors for severe skin toxicity in colorectal cancer patients treated with cetuximab.

PLoS One 2018 17;13(12):e0208080. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Department of Clinical Oncology, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, The Netherlands.

EGFR-antibodies are associated with significant skin toxicity, including acneiform rash and folliculitis. It remains impossible to predict the occurrence of severe skin toxicity due to the lack of predictive markers. Here, we present the first genome-wide association study (GWAS) to find single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with EGFR inhibitor-induced skin toxicity using data of the multicentre randomized phase III CAIRO2 trial (clinicaltrials.

Autoimmune Progesterone Dermatitis Diagnosed by Lymphocyte Transformation Test and Progesterone Provocation Test.

Assoc. Prof. Suzana Ljubojević Hadžavdić, MD, PhD, Department of Dermatology and Venereology University Hospital Center Zagreb School of Medicine University of Zagreb, Šalata 4, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia;

Autoimmune progesterone dermatitis (APD) is rare autoimmune response to endogenous progesterone or to earlier exposure to exogenous progesterone (1). Skin lesions typically occur due to increases in progesterone during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle (2). A-31-year-old mother of two children presented to our Department with a 5-year history of pruritic and painful erythematosus macules, papules, and patches on her neck, pectoral region, and face, which appeared 2-3 days before the onset of menses and gradually resolved 7-10 days later (Figure 1).

Mechanical Stress as a Cause of Hidradenitis Suppurativa: A Lesson from a Patient with a Monster Hernia.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2018 Oct;26(3):260-261

Valerio De Vita, MD, Young Dermatologists Italian Network (YDIN) Study Center of the Italian Group for Epidemiologic Research in Dermatology (GISED), Via Clara Maffei 4, 24121 Bergamo , Italy;

We have read with great interest the case report recently published in Acta Dermatovenerologica Croatica by Boer and Mihajlovic (1), which describes a 33-year-old woman with an 18-year history of classic hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) who developed HS-like lesions at the position of the bra strap. We agree with Boer and Mihajlovic: according to our clinical experience, we are convinced that mechanical stress may contribute or, in some cases, result in the development of HS. In this regard, we will describe the case of a patient with a monster hernia who presented HS-like lesions on his abdomen corresponding to the perihernial skin area, suggesting that mechanical stress was an important pathogenic factor for HS development.

Rosacea and Demodicosis: Little-known Diagnostic Signs and Symptoms.

Acta Derm Venereol 2019 01;99(1):47-52

Dermatology Clinic, Université Libre de Bruxelles, 1030 Bruxelles, Belgium.

Papulopustular rosacea and demodicosis are characterized by non-specific symptoms, which can make clinical diagnosis difficult. This retrospective study of 844 patients assessed the diagnostic importance of clinical signs and symptoms that are poorly recognized as being associated with these conditions. In addition to well-known signs (vascular signs (present in 80% of patients), papules (39%), pustules (22%) and ocular involvement (21%)), other signs and symptoms (discreet follicular scales (93%), scalp symptoms (pruritus, dandruff or folliculitis; 38%) and pruritus (15%)) may also suggest a diagnosis not only of demodicosis, but also of papulopustular rosacea.
