    Hidradenitis suppurativa in Crohn's disease during adalimumab therapy: a paradox?
    Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Pannonica Adriat 2017 Mar;26(1):21-23
    Dermatology Unit, Department of Clinical and Molecular Sciences, Polytechnic Marche University, Ancona, Italy.
    A sporadic association between hidradenitis suppurativa and other diseases is reported in the literature, but few authors have described the association with Crohn's disease. Adalimumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody targeted at tumor necrosis factor alpha approved for the treatment of Crohn's disease and, recently, for active moderate to severe hidradenitis suppurativa in adult patients that do not respond adequately to systemic conventional treatment. We report an unusual case of a paradoxical effect of adalimumab in the onset of hidradenitis suppurativa in a 40-year-old woman during the treatment of Crohn's disease. Read More

    Autoinflammatory syndromes associated with hidradenitis suppurativa and/or acne.
    Int J Dermatol 2017 Mar 27. Epub 2017 Mar 27.
    Department of Dermatology, Bispebjerg Hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark.
    Autoinflammatory syndromes associated with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) and/or acne are rare but potentially debilitating disorders if not diagnosed and treated correctly. They share a common pathogenesis involving a dysregulated innate immune system with abnormal interleukin (IL)-1 signaling leading to sterile neutrophilic inflammation. The clinical features are recurrent episodes of fever, painful arthritis, and skin lesions consistent with HS, acne, and pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) accompanied by elevated systemic inflammatory markers in blood.

    The International Dermatology Outcome Measures (IDEOM) Initiative: A Review and Update.
    J Drugs Dermatol 2017 Feb;16(2):119-124

    The International Dermatology Outcome Measures (IDEOM) group, comprising patients, physicians, health economists, industry partners, payers, and regulatory agencies, was established to develop unified and validated patient-centered outcome measures in dermatology in response to increasing demand to quantify effectiveness of treatments and performance outcomes among providers. IDEOM has chosen to start with psoriasis outcome measures, and then apply its methodology to other dermatologic diseases. In this paper, we review the background and progress to date of IDEOM, including an update of IDEOM activities as of our 2016 meeting in Washington DC, USA. Read More

    A Systematic Review and Critical Evaluation of Reported Pathogenic Sequence Variants in Hidradenitis Suppurativa.
    Br J Dermatol 2017 Mar 9. Epub 2017 Mar 9.
    Department of Dermatology, Liverpool Hospital.
    Introduction: Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a severe chronic inflammatory disorder characterised by recurrent painful deep seated nodules with a predilection to the apocrine bearing areas of skin. A minority of cases of HS are due to mutations in the gamma secretase complex. Contention exists surrounding the pathogenicity of sequence variants and their effects upon notch signalling. Read More

    Familial Mediterranean fever patients with hidradenitis suppurativa.
    Int J Dermatol 2017 Feb 14. Epub 2017 Feb 14.
    Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Ludwig-Maximilians University, Munich, Germany.
    Background: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) has recently been described as a component of two autoinflammatory syndromes: PASH (pyoderma gangrenosum, acne, and HS) and PAPASH (pyoderma gangrenosum, acne, pyogenic arthritis, and HS). These associations together with others such as inflammatory bowel diseases suggest that defects in autoinflammatory pathways may play a role in the pathogenesis of HS.

    Objectives: To describe clinical and genetic characteristics of two unrelated patients with HS and familial Mediterranean fever (FMF). Read More
