Pseudorheumatoid nodule: a variant of granuloma annulare?

Dermatol Online J 2020 May 15;26(5). Epub 2020 May 15.

Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, Springfield, IL.

We present an adult woman with subcutaneous nodules without any signs or symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. These nodules are believed to be pseudorheumatoid nodules, which are considered a deep form of granuloma annulare. This case is unique because these are typically found in children and have rarely been reported in adults. Read More

Cyclosporin in Dermatology: A Practical Compendium.

Dermatol Ther 2020 Jun 30:e13934. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

Department of Medicine, The Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi-Pakistan.

Cyclosporine A belongs to calcineurin inhibitor family, which has the ability to selectively suppress T-cells. Owing to its immune-modulatory effects, it had been in use for graft versus host diseases and organ transplant rejection for many years, but in dermatology, it was first approved for use in 1997 in the treatment of psoriasis. Other off label indications for skin diseases includes atopic dermatitis, chronic spontaneous urticaria, lichen planus, pyoderma gangrenosum, alopecia areata, granuloma annulare and several others.

A retrospective review of UVA1 treatment: An Australian experience from a single centre.

Australas J Dermatol 2020 May 10. Epub 2020 May 10.

Pitney Dermatology, Toowong, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Background: The therapeutic value of ultraviolet A1 (UVA1) phototherapy has been acknowledged for many years. Initially developed predominately for experimental and diagnostic purposes, it was subsequently recognised as a beneficial therapeutic modality in atopic dermatitis and localised scleroderma, and more recently a variety of sclerosing and fibrosing dermatoses, T-lymphocyte mediated disorders, both inflammatory and infiltrative, and several predominately dermal processes previously unresponsive to current therapies.

Methods: We present a retrospective evaluation of outcomes and treatment tolerability in adult patients using a low dose (30 joules/cm ), regimen administered in our private dermatologic practice, between 2006 and December 2019. Read More

We present three children who presented with papules and plaques over the knuckles, mimicking Gottron's papules of juvenile dermatomyositis, as well as subcutaneous nodules over the joints of the extremities that were initially thought to represent calcinosis cutis. However, thorough clinical and laboratory evaluation, as well as imaging, failed to support this diagnosis. Skin biopsies were consistent with a diagnosis of subcutaneous granuloma annulare.

The Promise of JAK Inhibitors for Treatment of Sarcoidosis and Other Inflammatory Disorders with Macrophage Activation: A Review of the Literature.

Yale J Biol Med 2020 03 27;93(1):187-195. Epub 2020 Mar 27.

Department of Dermatology, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT.

Certain inflammatory disorders are characterized by macrophage activation and accumulation in tissue; sometimes leading to the formation of granulomas, as in sarcoidosis. These disorders are often difficult to treat and more effective, molecularly targeted therapies are needed. Recent work has shown that overproduction of inflammatory cytokines, such as interferon gamma (IFN-γ) leading to constitutive activation of the JAK-STAT pathway may be a conserved feature of these disorders.

Am J Dermatopathol 2020 Mar;42(3):157-164

Dermatology Specialist, Department of Dermatology, Hospital de Santa Maria, Lisboa, Portugal.

Granulomatous skin diseases comprise an extensive group of pathologies whose diagnosis usually requires a histopathological examination. At this level, various types of granulomas can be distinguished, namely tuberculoid, sarcoid, necrobiotic, suppurative, xanthogranuloma, and foreign-body granulomas. This study aimed to determine the frequency and pattern of different granulomatous skin lesions in the Dermatopathology Department of Hospital de Santa Maria (Lisboa, Portugal). Read More

Generalised papular variant of elastolytic giant cell granuloma.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Dec 16;12(12). Epub 2019 Dec 16.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Hospital de Braga, Braga, Portugal.

Elastolytic giant cell granuloma (EGCG), also known as actinic granuloma, is an uncommon granulomatous dermatosis usually characterised by asymptomatic annular plaques on sun-exposed skin. Its aetiology is not fully elucidated, but actinic damage has been considered the main causal factor. Atypical variants with lesions in a non-photodistributed pattern are rare and often related to a systemic disorder, suggesting a more complex pathogenesis and demanding for a screening work-up.
