Genitogluteal porokeratosis: a clinical review.

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol 2018 1;11:219-229. Epub 2018 May 1.

Department of Dermatology, Mumbai Port Trust Hospital, Mumbai, India.

Porokeratosis is an uncommon disorder of keratinization that presents with keratotic papules or annular plaques that expand centrifugally with a thread-like elevated border. A distinctive histologic structure, the cornoid lamella, is diagnostic of this disorder and consists of a column of parakeratosis with the absence of the granular layer and dyskeratotic cells in the upper spinous zone. Porokeratosis confined to the genitogluteal region is rare and may be subclassified into three types, namely, classical porokeratosis on the genital region, ptychotropic porokeratosis most often seen in the natal cleft and buttocks and penoscrotal porokeratosis that is seen on the penis and adjacent scrotal skin in young men in their third decade of life.

Validating a Selective S1P Receptor Modulator Syl930 for Psoriasis Treatment.

Biol Pharm Bull 2018 Apr 7;41(4):592-596. Epub 2018 Feb 7.

State Key Laboratory of Bioactive Substances and Functions of Natural Medicines, Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College.

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by red, scaly and raised plaques. Thus far, T-cell infiltration is one of the most prominent pathogenic triggers, however, the exact molecular mechanisms underlying psoriasis have not been clearly established. Sphingolipid sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a lysophospholipid regulator modulating a variety of immune cell trafficking via interactions with its cognate receptors, S1P. Read More

Eosinophils are rare in biopsy specimens of psoriasis vulgaris.

J Cutan Pathol 2017 Dec 13;44(12):1027-1032. Epub 2017 Oct 13.

Department of Pathology, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio.

Background: Histological features of lesional biopsies can be helpful in distinguishing psoriasis subtypes from disease mimickers. However, occasionally, classic histological features are not sufficient for distinction, and additional clues would be useful. There is a common belief that the presence of eosinophils in skin biopsies argues against psoriasis, but actual literature is scant. Read More

Reflectance Confocal Microscopy Criteria of Pigmented Squamous Cell Carcinoma In Situ.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Mar;40(3):173-179

Department of Dermatology, Sheba Medical Center and Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Pigmented squamous cell carcinoma in situ (pSCCis) is difficult to diagnose based on clinical and dermoscopic examination. Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) allows noninvasive differentiation between malignant and benign pigmented skin lesions. We determined the frequency of key RCM features of pSCCis and correlated the RCM criteria with the corresponding dermoscopic and histopathologic criteria. Read More

Submammary Granular Parakeratosis Treated With Mastopexy.

J Drugs Dermatol 2017 Aug;16(8):810-812

Granular parakeratosis, originally named axillary granular parakeratosis, is an uncommon disease with an unclear etiology. It is thought to result from defective processing of profillagrin to fillagrin, causing retention of keratohyaline granules in the epidermis. A myriad of causative factors has been proposed, including friction, moisture, heat, and contact irritants such as deodorants. Read More

Follicular porokeratosis: four new cases.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2017 Dec 27;42(8):881-886. Epub 2017 Jul 27.

Department of Cellular Pathology, Warwick Hospital, Warwick, Warwickshire, UK.

Porokeratosis, a disorder of keratinisation, is clinically characterized by the presence of annular plaques with a surrounding keratotic ridge. Clinical variants include linear, disseminated superficial actinic, verrucous/hypertrophic, disseminated eruptive, palmoplantar and porokeratosis of Mibelli (one or two typical plaques with atrophic centre and guttered keratotic rim). All of these subtypes share the histological feature of a cornoid lamella, characterized by a column of 'stacked' parakeratosis with focal absence of the granular layer, and dysmaturation (prematurely keratinised cells in the upper spinous layer).

Constitutive Autophagy and Nucleophagy during Epidermal Differentiation.

J Invest Dermatol 2016 07 25;136(7):1460-1470. Epub 2016 Mar 25.

Centre for Cell Biology and Cutaneous Research, Blizard Institute, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, London, UK. Electronic address:

Epidermal keratinocytes migrate through the epidermis up to the granular layer where, on terminal differentiation, they progressively lose organelles and convert into anucleate cells or corneocytes. Our report explores the role of autophagy in ensuring epidermal function providing the first comprehensive profile of autophagy marker expression in developing epidermis. We show that autophagy is constitutively active in the epidermal granular layer where by electron microscopy we identified double-membrane autophagosomes. Read More

Orthokeratotic Bowen disease: a histopathologic, immunohistochemical and molecular study.

J Cutan Pathol 2016 Jan 18;43(1):24-31. Epub 2015 Sep 18.

Dermatologikum Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany.

Background: Some examples of Bowen disease lack the characteristic broad parakeratosis making their histopathologic diagnosis particularly difficult in small and incomplete biopsies.

Materials And Methods: The archives of our dermatopathology laboratory were searched for cases of Bowen disease with >75% orthokeratosis (orthokeratotic Bowen disease) and classic Bowen disease (>25% parakeratosis). Selected specimens were evaluated histopathologically, using immunohistochemical stains (CK10, CK7, Bcl-2, p16 and Ki-67) and by DNA amplification/sequencing for human papilloma virus (HPV) subtypes.

Granular Parakeratosis: A Comprehensive Review and a Critical Reappraisal.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2015 Dec;16(6):495-500

Department of Dermatology, State University of New York at Downstate, 450 Clarkson Ave, Brooklyn, NY, 11203, USA.

Granular parakeratosis (GP) is a rare, idiopathic, and benign skin condition that presents classically as erythematous to brown hyperkeratotic papules that can coalesce into plaques. Axillary GP was initially observed by Northcutt and colleagues and has since been described in various other areas of the body including other intertriginous and non-intertriginous sites. The term "granular parakeratosis" is now used to describe not only the skin condition, but also a distinctive histological reactive pattern on biopsy specimens that are either regarded as the disease itself, or merely as an incidental finding.

Infantile granular parakeratosis: cytologic examination of superficial scrapings as an aid to diagnosis.

Pediatr Dermatol 2015 May-Jun;32(3):392-6. Epub 2015 Feb 7.

Department of Pathology, Acıbadem University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Granular parakeratosis (GP) is a benign disorder of keratinization presenting with unilateral or bilateral red to brown hyperkeratotic plaques and papules at the intertriginous areas. The first pediatric case of GP was reported in 2002, and only a few cases have been reported since. Although the exact etiology of GP is unknown, it is thought that certain environmental factors compromise the epidermal barrier and lead to proliferation and altered maturation of the epidermis in predisposed individuals.

Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Graz, Graz, Austria.

Actinic keratoses (AKs) are intraepithelial neoplasms formed by atypical keratinocyte proliferation. Histopathologically, typical AKs are characterized by a slightly thickened epidermis, usually with irregular downward buds, orthokeratosis alternating with parakeratosis ('pink and blue') with loss of the underlying granular layer and a disarrangement of the epidermis with atypical keratinocytes at the basal layer. There are several histopathological variants of AK according to the different degrees of keratinocytic atypia, epidermal hyperplasia/atrophy, inflammation and pigmentation. Read More

Circumscribed palmar or plantar hypokeratosis: first report on a nonacral site with unique histologic features.

Am J Dermatopathol 2013 Jun;35(4):491-3

Department of Dermatology, Lehigh Valley Hospital, Allentown, PA 18103, USA.

Circumscribed palmar or plantar hypokeratosis was first described by Pérez et al in 2002 as a unique entity of the skin in which they reported 10 patients who presented with well-circumscribed areas of erythematous depressed or eroded skin mostly over the thenar or hypothenar eminences of the palms and less commonly on the soles. Histologically, the lesions demonstrated an abrupt drop-off in the cornified layer resulting in a broad area of hypokeratosis. Pérez et al hypothesized that these lesions were a distinctive epidermal malformation. Read More

The transcriptional regulators that couple interfollicular basal keratinocyte proliferation arrest to commitment and differentiation are yet to be identified. Here we report that the basic region leucine zipper transcription factors C/EBPalpha and C/EBPbeta are co-expressed in basal keratinocytes, and are coordinately upregulated as keratinocytes exit the basal layer and undergo terminal differentiation. Mice lacking both C/EBPalpha and beta in the epidermis showed increased proliferation of basal keratinocytes and impaired commitment to differentiation. Read More

Clinical and histopathological analysis of intramucosal zirconia inserts used for improving maxillary denture retention.

Braz Dent J 2009 ;20(2):149-55

Center for the Study of Osseointegrated Implants, University City of São Paulo, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Intramucosal inserts made of zirconia ceramic have been used for the rehabilitation of edentulous patients. This study aimed to follow up on patients with complete dentures having intramucosal zirconia inserts and to perform a histological analysis of biopsies of the epithelium surrounding the inserts. Twelve 31-66-year-old subjects of both genders received complete denture treatment having the intramucosal inserts in place. Read More

Concordance between in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy and histology in the evaluation of plaque psoriasis.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2009 Jun 20;23(6):660-7. Epub 2009 Feb 20.

San Gallicano Dermatological Institute, Rome, Italy.

Background: Psoriasis is a common skin inflammatory disease that affects 2% of the general population. Plaque psoriasis (PP) is its most common variant. In vivo reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a non-invasive, reproducible imaging technique that has proven to give useful information for morphometric evaluation of several inflammatory skin conditions, such as acute contact dermatitis and discoid lupus.

Granular parakeratosis--a clinical-pathological correlation of 10 cases.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2009 Apr 3;7(4):340-4. Epub 2008 Dec 3.

Department of Dermatology, Freiburg University Clinic, Germany.

Background: Granular parakeratosis describes chronic skin lesions within the intertriginous areas that demonstrate microscopically parakeratosis together with retention of keratohyalin granules within a thickened stratum corneum. Granular parakeratosis is rarely diagnosed, since it is still relatively unknown within the differential diagnoses of intertriginous eruptions, and a skin biopsy is required for diagnosis. In order to gain insight into the clinical-histopathologic correlation, we present 10 cases of granular parakeratosis. Read More

Progressive symmetric erythro-keratosis associated with oligodontia, severe caries, disturbed hair growth and ectopic nail: a new syndrome?

Dermatology 2008 18;217(4):347-50. Epub 2008 Sep 18.

Department of Dermatology, University of Palermo, Palermo, Italy.

A 7-year-old girl had well-demarcated erythematous plaques covered with white pityriasiform scales which were symmetrically distributed and involved the extensor surfaces of the extremities as well as the abdomen, buttocks and face. Histological examination showed marked hyperkeratosis with parakeratosis, and a thickened granular cell layer, mild acanthosis and slight lymphocytic infiltration surrounding the papillary blood vessels, compatible with a diagnosis of progressive symmetrical erythro-keratosis. Remarkably, a keratotic excrescence similar to a normal nail plate involved the tip of the nose since the age of 6 months. Read More

Granular parakeratosis.

Int J Dermatol 2008 Jul;47(7):707-8

Departments of Dermatology and Pathology, Hospital Clínico Universitario, Valencia, Spain.

A healthy 62-year-old woman was referred to our dermatology department with a 1-month history of a pruritic axillary eruption. On examination, multiple erythematous and brownish hyperkeratotic papules were seen in both axillae. Some of these lesions coalesced into plaques, with small areas of sparing, and a background erythematous color was also found in the axillary vaults (Fig. Read More

Granular parakeratosis in a patient treated with liposomal doxorubicin for ovarian carcinoma.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2008 May;58(5 Suppl 1):S84-7

Department of Dermatology, Edouard Herriot Hospital, Lyon, France.

Granular parakeratosis is a rare benign dermatosis caused by an acquired disorder of keratinization that usually manifests with reddish-brown keratotic papules and plaques in intertriginous areas. It has specific histologic features but its pathogenesis remains unclear. Its frequency is probably underestimated because the condition is usually misdiagnosed as simple intertrigo. Read More
