Evaluation of expression of Toll-Like Receptors 7 and 9, proliferation, and cytoskeletal biomarkers in plaque and guttate psoriasis: A pilot morphological study.

Eur J Histochem 2021 Mar 5;65(1). Epub 2021 Mar 5.

Department of Biomedical Sciences for Health, University of Milan.

This pilot study was aimed at comparing TLR7/TLR9 expression, cytoskeletal arrangement, and cell proliferation by indirect immunofluorescence in parallel lesional and non lesional skin samples of guttate psoriasis (PG) and psoriasis vulgaris (PV) in five male patients for each group (n=10).

Skin manifestations in spondyloarthritis.

Ther Adv Musculoskelet Dis 2020 8;12:1759720X20975915. Epub 2020 Dec 8.

Klinik für Dermatologie, Venerologie und Allergologie, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Berlin, Deutschland.

Spondyloarthritides (SpA) like psoriatic arthritis, axial spondyloarthritis/ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)-associated SpA can present with characteristic skin manifestations. These SpA-associated skin disorders may precede joint involvement, reflect a loss of efficacy of a current systemic treatment or can even be treatment associated. Cutaneous manifestations in SpA not only add additional morbidity with physical impact but also impose a psychosocial burden on affected patients. Read More

Dermoscopic characterization of guttate psoriasis, pityriasis rosea, and pityriasis lichenoides chronica in dark skin phototypes: An observational study.

Dermatol Ther 2021 01 13;34(1):e14631. Epub 2020 Dec 13.

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprosy, Himalayan Institute of Medical Sciences, Swami Rama Himalayan University, Dehradun, India.

Dermoscopy as a diagnostic tool is attaining impetus in inflammatory dermatoses with the cumulative description of characteristic findings in most dermatoses obviating at times the need of biopsy. In this retrospective observational study, 20 histopathology confirmed cases each of pityriasis rosea (PR), guttate psoriasis (GP), and pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC) seen over a period of 3 years were included. Dermoscopy images were extracted from photography archives for evaluation and three lesions from each patient (60 lesions each) were analyzed. Read More

A Case of Lichen Planus Masquerading as Guttate Psoriasis.

Cureus 2020 Oct 27;12(10):e11206. Epub 2020 Oct 27.

Dermatology, St. Anthony Hospital, Oklahoma City, USA.

Lichen planus (LP) is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes, with variants such as drug-induced lichen planus, which is triggered by medications such as angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and antimalarials. Guttate psoriasis (GP), a clinical variant of psoriasis, is associated with streptococcal infections and presents with drop-like papules on the trunk and proximal extremities. In this report, we present a case of LP in an atypical location masquerading as GP and the importance of prompt dermatological referral to improve the patient's quality of life. Read More

Front Immunol 2020 1;11:571319. Epub 2020 Oct 1.

Laboratory of Human Microbiome and Longevity, National Laboratory Astana, Nazarbayev University, Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.

Background: Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory condition that predominantly affects the skin and is associated with extracutaneous disorders, such as inflammatory bowel disease and arthritis. Changes in gut immunology and microbiota are important drivers of proinflammatory disorders and could play a role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. Therefore, we explored whether psoriasis in a Central Asian cohort is associated with alterations in select immunological markers and/or microbiota of the gut. Read More

Histone Deacetylase 1 and Sirtuin 1 Expression in Psoriatic Skin: A Comparison between Guttate and Plaque Psoriasis.

Life (Basel) 2020 Aug 21;10(9). Epub 2020 Aug 21.

Department of Dermatology, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, Seongnam 13620, Korea.

Abnormal histone modification by histone deacetylases (HDACs), including HDAC1 and sirtuin 1 (SIRT1), has been reported to play an important role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis by altering cell proliferation, differentiation, and inflammation. However, findings on the expression level of HDACs in psoriatic skin lack consistency. We assessed the expression of HDAC1, SIRT1, p63, and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) in skin tissues from 23 patients with psoriasis (15 with plaque psoriasis and eight with guttate psoriasis) and five healthy individuals using immunohistochemistry, and analyzed their associations with clinical phenotypes of the disease.

Shades of grey: what is paediatric psoriasiform dermatitis and what does it have in common with childhood psoriasis?

Clin Exp Dermatol 2021 Jan 29;46(1):65-73. Epub 2020 Aug 29.

Department of Dermatology, Royal North Shore Hospital, St Leonards, NSW, Australia.

Background: While the majority of children with a chronic itchy rash suffer from atopic dermatitis (AD) and other forms of dermatitis, psoriasis is in the differential diagnosis. Certain patterns such as guttate and napkin psoriasis are accepted as classic paediatric psoriasis (PP); however, there are many patients who do not fit these classic forms of PP nor fulfil the accepted criteria for AD. 'Psoriasiform dermatitis' (PD) is a term that has been used for these patients; however, it has not been formally defined. Read More
