Guttate Psoriasis Following COVID-19 Infection.

Cutis 2022 Feb;109(2):101-102

Wellness Dermatology, Lawrenceville, New Jersey.

Guttate psoriasis is a subgroup of psoriasis that most commonly presents as raindroplike, erythematous, silvery, scaly papules. Guttate psoriatic flares may follow rhinovirus or COVID-19 infection due to dysregulation of the innate immune response. We describe the case of a patient who experienced a moderate psoriatic flare 3 weeks after diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Read More

Exacerbation of Psoriasis Following COVID-19 Vaccination: Report From a Single Center.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2021 23;8:812010. Epub 2021 Dec 23.

Department of Dermatology, National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

The temporal association had been reported between vaccination and exacerbation of psoriasis, and episodes of psoriasis flare-up have recently been attributed to COVID-19 vaccines. We recruited 32 unimmunized controls and 51 vaccinated psoriasis patients, 49 of whom were under biological therapy, with regular clinic visits receiving a total of 63 shots of vaccines, including 30 doses of Moderna mRNA-1273 and 33 doses of AstraZeneca-Oxford AZD1222. Fifteen episodes of exacerbation attacked within 9. Read More

Discovery Life Sciences, Powell, Ohio; The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, Columbus, Ohio.

A total of 22 patients who had developed an adverse cutaneous reaction to the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine underwent biopsies. Each patient was assessed light microscopically, and, in select biopsies, spike glycoprotein and cytokine assessment were also conducted. The patients developed self-limited cutaneous reactions often described clinically as urticarial or eczematous within 1 day to 4 weeks after receiving the first or second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

Small plaque psoriasis re-visited: A type of psoriasis mediated by a type-I interferon pathway.

Exp Dermatol 2022 05 13;31(5):753-763. Epub 2021 Dec 13.

Department of Dermatology and Skin Science, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

TNFα-inhibitor-induced psoriasis is mediated by the type-I interferon pathway, of which IFNα, LL37 and IL-36γ are major players. A subset of patients treated with TNFα inhibitors develop small plaque psoriatic lesions. Small plaque psoriasis is similarly observed in patients on immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI), and with concurrent systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) or positive antinuclear antibody (ANA).

Evidence for the presence of a human saprophytic oral bacterium, Mycoplasma faucium, in the skin lesions of a psoriatic patient.

J Cutan Pathol 2022 May 27;49(5):463-467. Epub 2021 Dec 27.

Mycology Research Laboratory and UOA/HCPF Culture Collection, Microbiology Department, Medical School, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

Psoriasis is currently regarded a mixed autoimmune and autoinflammatory disease. This report describes for the first time the detection of a saprophytic, human oral Tenericutes species, Mycoplasma faucium, in the skin lesions of a patient presenting initially guttate and later plaque psoriasis. An unusual finding in standard histopathology investigation consisted of round and oval thinly stained or unstained, possibly intracellular structures, apparently directly pressing on keratinocyte nuclei of the psoriatic stratum spinosum.

Ichthyosis, psoriasiform dermatitis, and recurrent fungal infections in patients with biallelic mutations in PERP.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2022 Mar 29;36(3):472-479. Epub 2021 Dec 29.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Background: Germline autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive mutations in PERP, encoding p53 effector related to PMP-22 (PERP), a component of epidermal desmosomes, have been associated with a spectrum of keratodermas. Monoallelic nonsense mutations cause Olmsted syndrome with severe periorificial keratoderma and palmoplantar keratoderma (PPK). Biallelic recessive frameshift and missense mutations are associated with milder forms of the disease, including generalised erythrokeratoderma and PPK. Read More

Human CLA Memory T Cell and Cytokines in Psoriasis.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2021 29;8:731911. Epub 2021 Oct 29.

Translational Immunology, Department of Cellular Biology, Physiology and Immunology, Faculty of Biology, Universitat de Barcelona, Parc Científic de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain.

Psoriasis is a common inflammatory skin condition resulting from the interplay between epidermal keratinocytes and immunological cellular components. This sustained inflammation is essentially driven by pro-inflammatory cytokines with the IL-23/IL-17 axis playing a critical central role, as proved by the clinical efficacy of their blockade in patients. Among all the CD45R0 memory T cell subsets, those with special tropism for cutaneous tissues are identified by the expression of the Cutaneous Lymphocyte-associated Antigen (CLA) carbohydrate on their surface, that is induced during T cell maturation particularly in the skin-draining lymph nodes.

Clinicoprognostic and Histopathological Features of Guttate and Plaque Psoriasis Based on PD-1 Expression.

J Clin Med 2021 Nov 7;10(21). Epub 2021 Nov 7.

Department of Dermatology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, 88 Olympic-ro 43-gil, Songpa-gu, Seoul 05505, Korea.

Several studies have determined the correlation between programmed cell death protein-1 (PD-1) and chronic plaque psoriasis (CPP). However, limited studies have assessed the association between PD-1 expression and the clinicoprognostic and distinct clinicopathological characteristics of CPP and guttate psoriasis (GP). Twenty-nine patients with skin biopsy-confirmed CPP were recruited at the Asan Medical Center between January 2018 and June 2020, and 33 patients with biopsy-confirmed GP were enrolled between January 2002 and June 2020.

A Guttate Psoriasis That Tends to Spare Three Tattoos: A Macrophage Liaison.

Case Rep Dermatol Med 2021 11;2021:9448636. Epub 2021 Sep 11.

Department of Skin and Venereal Diseases, Faculty of Medicine, School of Health Sciences, University of Ioannina, Ioannina, Greece.

Induction of new psoriasis sites was reported in only a small amount of psoriasis patients undergoing tattooing, despite the intuitive belief that tattoo trauma might awaken the disease due to the isomorphic phenomenon of Koebner. In this case report, we discuss a patient who presented with a remarkable sparing of his three tattoo sites during a guttate psoriasis flare-up that was unrelated to tattooing. The spatial concordance of tattoo and psoriasis lesions was analyzed on clinical pictures of tattoo sites taken during the psoriasis episode. Read More

Expression of microRNA-21 and TIMP-3 in paradoxical psoriasiform reactions during treatment with antitumor necrosis factor agents.

J Cutan Pathol 2022 Feb 23;49(2):116-122. Epub 2021 Aug 23.

Department of Dermatology, Hospital Universitario La Princesa, Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Princesa (IIS-IP), Madrid, Spain.

Background: Expression of microRNA-21 (miR-21) is increased in psoriasis, leading to reduced levels of epidermal tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase 3 (TIMP-3), a highly potent inhibitor of the tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) sheddase TACE (TNFα-converting enzyme)/ADAM17. We described the profile of miR-21 and TIMP-3 in paradoxical psoriasiform reactions induced by anti-TNFα drugs and in a control group to elucidate the pathogenesis of this reactions.

Methods: We performed an analytic, cross-sectional, prospective, experimental case-control study. Read More
