Autistic-Undisciplined Thinking in the Practice of Medical Trichology.

Int J Trichology 2019 Jan-Feb;11(1):1-7

Department of Dermatology, Center of Medical Sciences, Fluminense Federal University, Antonio Pedro University Hospital, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Medical trichology is the branch of dermatology that deals with the scientific study of the hair and scalp in health and disease. As any discipline, the practice of medical trichology is not immune to malpractice, either deliberately or carelessly. In his publication "Autistic Undisciplined Thinking in Medicine and How to Overcome It," Swiss psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler describes yet another form of malpractice in medicine reflecting autistic-undisciplined thinking.

A Systematic Review of the Outcome of Hair Transplantation in Primary Scarring Alopecia.

Skin Appendage Disord 2019 Feb 5;5(2):65-71. Epub 2018 Sep 5.

Department of Dermatology and Dermatopathology, University of California-Irvine, Irvine, California, USA.

Importance: Hair loss, or alopecia, is one of the most commonly presented problems in dermatology. Scarring alopecias are considered particularly damaging due to limited success in slowing permanent disease progression, and current treatment methods, such as intralesional and topical steroids and topical minoxidil, are largely ineffective.

Objective: Hair transplantation is a debated treatment option for advanced cases of primary scarring alopecia. Read More

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

Department of Dermatology, Federal Fluminense University, Antonio Pedro University Hospital, Niterói, 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 are very few data available in the literature regarding scalp histopathological features in ichthyosis.

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.

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.

Adipose tissue transplant in recurrent folliculitis decalvans.

Int J Immunopathol Pharmacol 2018 Mar-Dec;32:2058738418814688

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, San Gallicano Dermatological Institute IRCCS, Rome, Italy.

Folliculitis decalvans is a rare clinical disorder classified as primary neutrophilic scarring alopecia with a slight preference for the male gender. Here, we report the use of autologous fat transplantation as a source of stem cell therapy for hair re-growth assisted by inflammatory action of the fat itself in a female patient. The patient underwent adipose transplantation in April and September 2017. Read More

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

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2018 Oct;26(3):276-277

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.

Linear Circumscribed Scleroderma-Like Folliculitis Decalvans: Yet Another Face of a Protean Condition.

Int J Trichology 2018 Jul-Aug;10(4):175-179

Center for Dermatology and Hair Diseases Professor Trüeb, Wallisellen, Zurich, Switzerland.

Since Quinquaud's original report of folliculitis decalvans (FD), further clinical variants have been described on the basis of common histopathological and microbiological findings. Histopathology reveals a neutrophilic primary scarring alopecia, and microbiological studies invariably reveal pathogenic strains of . The presence of thickening of lesional skin in FD has been previously described. Read More
