Pachydermoperiostosis (PDP), also known as primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy is a rare genetic disorder characterized bypachyderma and periostosis.Acromegaly is a condition caused by excessive secretion of growth hormone leading to elevated insulin growth factor-1 levels, which is characterised by somatic overgrowth and physical disfigurement notably affecting hands and feet. We presented two cases referred with an initial diagnosis of acromegaly and were ultimately diagnosed as PDP. Read More

Doege-Potter Syndrome with a Benign Solitary Fibrous Tumor: A Case Report and Literature Review.

Case Rep Oncol 2021 Jan-Apr;14(1):470-476. Epub 2021 Mar 18.

Department of Internal Medicine, University of Connecticut, Farmington, Connecticut, USA.

Doege-Potter syndrome is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome that is often diagnosed incidentally during the workup of hypoglycemia of unclear etiology. It is characterized by a non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia secondary to excessive production of partially processed IGF-II hormone from a solitary fibrous tumor (SFT). Often these tumors are intrathoracic, benign, and asymptomatic. Read More

Monoallelic mutations in SLCO2A1 cause autosomal dominant primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy.

J Bone Miner Res 2021 Apr 14. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Shanghai Clinical Research Center of Bone Disease, Department of Osteoporosis and Bone Diseases, Shanghai Jiao Tong University Affiliated Sixth People's Hospital, Shanghai, China.

Primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy (PHO) is a rare disease inherited as a recessive or irregular dominant trait and characterized by digital clubbing, pachydermia, and periostosis. Biallelic mutations in HPGD and SLCO2A1, disturbing prostaglandin E (PGE ) catabolism and leading to increased circulating PGE level, cause PHO autosomal recessive 1 (PHOAR1) and PHO autosomal recessive 2 (PHOAR2), respectively. However, no causative genes have been reported for PHO autosomal dominant (PHOAD). Read More

Cutaneous Paraneoplastic Syndromes with Nail Involvement.

Dermatol Clin 2021 Apr 12;39(2):175-182. Epub 2021 Feb 12.

Nail Disease Centre, Rue des Serbes 42, Cannes 06400, France.

The cutaneous paraneoplastic syndromes are rare and intrinsically devoid of any neoplastic nature. The manifestations on the skin and the nails are due to various mechanisms caused by the tumor, either due to production of bioactive substances or in response to it. These disorders evolve in parallel to the malignancy, in that, they regress when the tumor is removed and reappear in the case of tumor recurrence. Read More

Purpose: Primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy (PHO) is a rare, autosomal, recessive genetic disease characterized by digital clubbing, periostosis, and pachydermia. The underlying cause for the pathogenesis of this disease is a defect in prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) degradation, caused by mutations in HPGD or SLCO2A1. In this study, we describe the clinical characteristics, SLCO2A1 mutations, and bone metabolic markers of a PHO pedigree from a Chinese consanguineous twin family. Read More
