Mechanisms of microbial pathogenesis and the role of the skin microbiome in psoriasis: A review.

Clin Dermatol 2019 Mar - Apr;37(2):160-166. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Center for Dermatology Research, Department of Dermatology, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA; Departments of Pathology and Social Sciences & Health Policy, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA.

The pathogenesis of psoriasis may involve a breakdown of immune tolerance to cutaneous microorganisms. Psoriasis is associated with a higher incidence of Crohn disease and periodontitis, two diseases involving impaired tolerance and abnormal immune activation in response to intestinal and oral microbiota, respectively. In addition, guttate and chronic plaque psoriasis are associated with Streptococcus pyogenes colonization. Read More

A cross-sectional study of the distribution of psoriasis subtypes in different ethno-racial groups.

Dermatol Online J 2018 Jul 15;24(7). Epub 2018 Jul 15.

Department of Dermatology, University of California-San Francisco, San Francisco, California.

Skin of colored patients with psoriasis are more likely to remain undiagnosed and experience a greater impact on quality of life than their white counterparts. A better understanding of the ethno-racial differences in the presentation of psoriasis can help address these disparities. To compare the prevalence of psoriatic subtypes (plaque, guttate, pustular, erythrodermic, palmoplantar, and inverse) and lesion locations in Caucasian, Asian, and Hispanic/Latino patients, we analyzed cross-sectional, patient-reported, physician-reviewed survey data from 882 adult and 16 pediatric psoriasis patients seen at the University of California, San Francisco Department of Dermatology between 2006 and 2016.

Compounded Low-dose Naltrexone for the Treatment of Guttate Psoriasis: A Case Report.

Int J Pharm Compd 2018 Jul-Aug;22(4):270-278

Retired compounding pharmacist, Hammond, Louisiana.

The ancient autoimmune skin condition psoriasis is still ubiquitous worldwide, produces the same, often-intolerable effects noted in its earliest recorded descriptions, and remains without cure. Management options designed to resolve the itchy, scaly, weeping, erythematous, and often widespread lesions of that disorder are now available, but they vary in efficacy, most are associated with the development of severe adverse effects, and many are prohibitively expensive. In this article, we describe the successful use of a compounded formulation of oral low-dose naltrexone to manage guttate psoriasis in a 75-year-old white male patient. Read More

Skin Manifestations of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, and Spondyloarthritides.

Clin Rev Allergy Immunol 2017 Dec;53(3):371-393

Department of Dermatology, Inselspital, Bern University Hospital, University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

Extra-articular manifestations of rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and various spondyloarthritides including psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease-associated spondyloarthritis often involve the skin and may occur before or after diagnosis of these rheumatic diseases. Cutaneous manifestations encompass a wide range of reactions that may have a notable negative impact not only on the physical but especially on the emotional and psychosocial well-being of these patients. Several cutaneous manifestations have been related to rheumatoid arthritis such as subcutaneous nodules including classical rheumatoid nodules, accelerated rheumatoid nodulosis, and rheumatoid nodulosis; vascular disorders like rheumatoid vasculitis, livedo racemosa, and Raynaud's phenomenon; and neutrophilic and/or granulomatous diseases like pyoderma gangrenosum, Sweet's syndrome, rheumatoid neutrophilic dermatitis, interstitial granulomatous dermatitis with arthritis, as well as palisaded neutrophilic and granulomatous dermatitis.

Psoriasis Induced by Anti-Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha Agents: A Comprehensive Review of the Literature.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2016 Aug;24(3):169-74

Prof. Massimo De Martinis, MD, Department of Life, Health AND Environmental Sciences, University of L'Aquila, L'Aquila, Italy;

Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) inhibitors revolutionized the management of patients affected by autoimmune diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, and psoriasis. The biologic agents targeted to block TNF-α such as infliximab, adalimumab, certulizumab pegol, etanercept, and golimumab, have a good safety profile; however, with increasing, broader, and prolonged use, patients could be exposed to an increased risk of adverse reactions including a wide spectrum of dermatological conditions of different etiology and morphology. Among these, of particular interest is the development of skin immune-mediated diseases that seem to be the consequence of the paradoxical inflammation induced by anti-TNF-α therapy. Read More

Seasonal variations in dermatologic and dermatopathologic diagnoses: a retrospective 15-year analysis of dermatopathologic data.

Int J Dermatol 2016 Oct 7;55(10):1115-8. Epub 2016 Apr 7.

Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Background: Certain dermatologic conditions are known to show seasonal variations in frequency, the reasons for which are unclear but in some cases may be attributable to changes in ambient weather conditions.

Objectives: The current study was conducted to determine whether seasonal trends might exist for dermatologic conditions including erythema multiforme, guttate psoriasis, erythema dyschromicum perstans (ashy dermatosis), pityriasis lichenoides, and pityriasis rosea.

Methods: Data were derived from a 15-year retrospective review of electronic records from a large dermatopathology laboratory located in the mid-Atlantic region of the USA. Read More

Streptococcus pyogenes-induced cutaneous lymphocyte antigen-positive T cell-dependent epidermal cell activation triggers TH17 responses in patients with guttate psoriasis.

J Allergy Clin Immunol 2016 08 4;138(2):491-499.e6. Epub 2016 Apr 4.

Translational Immunology, Department of Cellular Biology, Physiology and Immunology, Universitat de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain. Electronic address:

Background: Guttate psoriasis (GP) is characterized by acute onset of small, rounded psoriatic lesions. Although this particular phenotype of psoriasis is usually associated with streptococcal throat infections and mainly occurs in HLA-Cw6(+) patients, the specific immunologic response to this innate stimulus that causes these skin lesions is poorly understood.

Objective: This study aims to elucidate how key cellular elements of patients with GP respond to Streptococcus pyogenes and whether this initial immune response is favored by the genetic and environmental background of these patients. Read More

Tailor systemic therapy to the patient with severe psoriasis.

Practitioner 2016 Feb;260(1790):23-6, 3

There is no standard definition regarding the severity of psoriasis, and a number of factors should be considered, including the extent and stability of skin disease, involvement of joints, response to treatment, and impact on quality of life. Erythrodermic psoriasis and pustular psoriasis are severe conditions and the patient may be systemically unwell and febrile. NICE recommends that four key areas should be evaluated and recorded when assessing patients: severity, using the static Physician's Global Assessment (sPGA); disease impact on physical, psychological and social wellbeing using the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI); the presence of psoriatic arthritis; and comorbidities.

Guttate psoriasis outcomes.

Cutis 2016 Feb;97(2):140-4

Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, Pennsylvania, USA.

Guttate psoriasis (GP) typically occurs following an acute infection such as streptococcal pharyngitis. It is thought to have a better prognosis than chronic plaque psoriasis (PP). This retrospective cohort study of 79 patients with GP aims to assess the likelihood of developing PP after the first episode of GP as well as compare clinical and laboratory data in patients with GP who do and do not develop PP.
