Laboratory of Medical Mycology, Jining No. 1 People's Hospital, Jining, 272000, People's Republic of China.

Impetigo, commonly caused by bacteria, is characterized by lesions of pustules, bullae or golden yellow crusts; it is seldom caused by fungi. Here, we report one case of a 17-year-old female patient with a 1-month history of erythematous pustules on her left cheek. She was clinically diagnosed with "impetigo", but did not respond to 1 week of treatment with topical mupirocin cream (antibacterial agent). Read More

[Skin and pregnancy].

Rev Med Suisse 2022 Mar;18(775):596-603

Service de dermatologie et vénéréologie, Département de médecine, Hôpitaux universitaires de Genève, 1211 Genève 14.

Pregnancy has a substantial impact on the hormonal status of the organism, consequently influencing the physiology of the skin. This results in dermatoses that only occur during pregnancy, which can also improve or exacerbate pre-existing dermatoses. In this article, we explain the management of pregnancy-specific dermatoses : atopic eruption of pregnancy, polymorphic eruption of pregnancy, pemphigoid gestationis, impetigo herpetiformis, and intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy.

Contact allergy to and allergic contact dermatitis from formaldehyde and formaldehyde releasers: A clinical review and update.

Contact Dermatitis 2022 Mar 1. Epub 2022 Mar 1.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Antwerp (UZA) and Research group Immunology, INFLA-MED Centre of Excellence, University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium.

This review aims to provide a clinically useful update regarding the role of formaldehyde (FA) and its five main releasers (FRs) quaternium-15, diazolidinyl urea, DMDM hydantoin, imidazolidinyl urea, and 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol (bronopol) in contact allergy and allergic contact dermatitis. These ubiquitous preservatives are still often present, and sometimes undeclared, in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, household detergents, and chemical (industrial) products. In Europe, the use of free FA and quaternium-15 in cosmetics is forbidden and contact allergy rates have been found to be stable to decreasing. Read More

Scabies Surrepticius (Bullous Scabies) Presenting as Bullous Impetigo in a Child.

J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2022 Mar;32(3):380-382

Department of Microbiology, Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT), Karachi, Pakistan.

Bullous scabies (BS) is a rare and atypical presentation of scabies, usually affecting elderly males during the seventh decade of life. BS is characterised by intense pruritic eruptions, nocturnal itch, and characteristic blisters with or without burrows in scabies-prone areas. The scabies lesions might predispose patients to bacterial super-infections, resulting in bullae formation similar to bullous impetigo. Read More

Prevalence of Infectious Diseases Among 6078 Individuals With Down Syndrome in the United States.

J Patient Cent Res Rev 2022 17;9(1):64-69. Epub 2022 Jan 17.

Advocate Aurora Health, Downers Grove, IL.

A recent disease prevalence study of the largest documented Down syndrome (DS) cohort in the United States strongly suggested significant disparity in general infectious disease conditions among individuals with DS versus those without DS. In this follow-up retrospective analysis, we explored these differences in greater detail by calculating prevalence of 52 infectious diseases, across 28 years of data among 6078 individuals with DS and 30,326 age- and sex-matched controls, abstracted from electronic medical records within a large Midwestern health system. We found that the DS cohort had higher prevalence of pneumonias (including aspiration, viral, bacterial, pneumococcal, and unspecified/atypical); otitis externa; and the skin infections impetigo, abscess, and cellulitis.

Treatment of Impetigo with Antiseptics-Replacing Antibiotics (TIARA) trial: a single blind randomised controlled trial in school health clinics within socioeconomically disadvantaged communities in New Zealand.

Trials 2022 Feb 2;23(1):108. Epub 2022 Feb 2.

Community Paediatrics, Starship Children's Health, Auckland, New Zealand.

Background: Impetigo is a common and contagious bacterial skin infection, affecting children worldwide, but it is particularly prevalent in socioeconomically disadvantaged communities. In New Zealand, widespread prescribing of the topical antibiotic fusidic acid had led to an increase in antimicrobial resistance of Staphylococcus aureus. Alternative treatments are urgently being sought, and as impetigo is a superficial infection, it has been suggested that topical antiseptics such as hydrogen peroxide or simple wound care alone may treat impetigo while avoiding the risk of increased antimicrobial resistance.

A Comprehensive Review Study on Glomerulonephritis Associated With Post-streptococcal Infection.

Cureus 2021 Dec 6;13(12):e20212. Epub 2021 Dec 6.

Medicine, College of Medicine, King Fahd Hospital of the University, Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University, Dammam, SAU.

Post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN) is an immune-complex mediated inflammation that used to be considered one of the commonest causes of acute nephritis amongst children. PSGN is characterized by the proliferation of cellular elements called nephritogenic M type as a result of an immunologic mechanism following an infection of the skin (impetigo) or throat (pharyngitis) caused by nephritogenic strains of group A beta-hemolytic streptococci, a gram-positive bacteria that enters the body across pores in the skin or mucus epithelia and is responsible for more than 500,000 deaths annually due to multiple subsequence diseases such as rheumatic heart disease, rheumatic fever, PSGN, and other invasive infections. After the infection, the formation of an immune complex of antigen-antibody and complement system will take place and will deposit in the glomeruli where the injury occurs and leads to inflammation.
