Lymphat Res Biol 2020 Jun 23. Epub 2020 Jun 23.

Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, National Institute of Epidemiology, ICMR, TNHB, Chennai, India.

Mass drug administration and morbidity management and disability prevention (MMDP) though considered as two pillars of global program for elimination of filariasis, implementation of MMDP was disregarded in several endemic countries. Limb hygiene is the main component of MMDP and to address its overall clinical benefits, a community-based study was undertaken in three sets of populations. After obtaining written informed consent, clinical, quality of life (QoL) assessments were carried out and lymphedema volume was measured for three groups of lymphedema patients at intake, at 6, and 12 months follow-up.

Inverse Psoriasis: From Diagnosis to Current Treatment Options.

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol 2019 31;12:953-959. Epub 2019 Dec 31.

Dermatology Clinic, University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

Inverse psoriasis represents a clinical variant of psoriasis that is sometimes difficult to diagnose due to its clinical similarity with other skin disorders involving the folds, mainly including mechanical intertrigo, fungal and bacterial infections, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and lichen planus. Dermoscopy represents a useful tool for an enhanced non-invasive diagnosis. The treatment of inverse psoriasis may be challenging and include topical corticosteroids, topical calcineurin inhibitors, vitamin D analogs, traditional oral systemic therapies such as cyclosporine and methotrexate, and biologic therapies.

[Erysipelas associated with recurrent squamous cell carcinoma of the labium majus after radiochemotherapy].

Pan Afr Med J 2019 23;33:248. Epub 2019 Jul 23.

Service de Dermatologie et Vénérologie, Hôpital Universitaire Hassan II, Fès, Maroc.

The erysipelas is a bacterial infection most frequently due to (85% of cases) streptococcus β-hemolytic of group A (SGA), resulting in non-necrotizing dermo-hypodermitis. Many factors may play a role in its occurrence such as general factors: diabetes, immunosuppression, chemotherapy, radiotherapy as well as locoregional ports of entry such as leg ulcer, an insect bite, intertrigo. The occurrence of erysipelas associated with recurrent squamous cell carcinoma after radiochemotherapy is exceptional, requiring early treatment of dermo-hypodermitis as well as suitable and multidisciplinary management of the carcinoma.

Prevention and management of moisture-associated skin damage.

Authors:
David Voegeli

Nurs Stand 2019 01;34(2):77-82

Southampton, England.

The harmful effects of excessive moisture on a patient's skin are well known. While traditionally considered an issue only encountered in continence care and older people, it is now recognised that the harmful effects of excessive moisture can occur across the lifespan and in various patient groups. The term 'moisture-associated skin damage' describes the spectrum of inflammatory damage that occurs in response to the prolonged exposure of a patient's skin to perspiration, urine, faeces or wound exudate.

ymmetrical drug-related intertriginous and flexural exanthema due to clindamycin.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Aug 2;12(8). Epub 2019 Aug 2.

Nursing Department, Hospital Universitario Nuestra Senora de la Candelaria, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain.

Systemic drug exposure can produce a skin reaction consisting of symmetrical erythema involving the gluteal and intertriginous areas in the absence of systemic involvement. ymmetrical drug-related intertriginous and flexural exanthema (SDRIFE) occurs after systemic exposure to a drug in which the patient was not previously sensitised, either in the first dose or after several doses. The mechanism of SDRIFE is unknown but is hypothesised to be the result of a delayed hypersensitivity response resulting in a cutaneous eruption some days after the exposure to the drug. Read More

Moisture-associated skin damage: use of a skin protectant containing manuka honey.

Authors:
Sue Woodward

Br J Nurs 2019 Mar;28(6):329-335

Senior Lecturer, Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Palliative Care, King's College London.

The skin is the largest organ in the body, providing an effective barrier against excessive fluid loss and invasion from bacteria, but the barrier function of the skin can be lost when it is damaged by prolonged contact with moisture. Moisture-associated skin damage can be caused by prolonged exposure to perspiration, urine or faeces, wound exudate or stomal output. Prevention and treatment of moisture-associated skin damage involves application of skin protectants, but there is a wide range of these products available to nursing staff, and clinical decision making is hampered by a lack of robust comparative evidence.

Cutaneous infections in the mature patient.

Clin Dermatol 2018 Mar - Apr;36(2):188-196. Epub 2017 Oct 3.

Sector of Dermatology and Post-Graduation Course in Dermatology, University Hospital and School of Medicine, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Electronic address:

Dermatologists must be familiar with the peculiarities of the micro-organisms that may affect the elderly, in order to optimize the diagnosis and treatment of infections, which may affect their skin, especially because the world population is rapidly aging. It is estimated that there will be 434 million individuals over 80 years of age in 2050. Since the elderly population is rapidly increasing and their infections are usually more severe and different from those observed in younger adults, it leads to a statistical increase of the rates regarding hospitalization and mortality caused by infectious diseases among people over 85 years.

Toe web intertrigo in Kaposi's sarcoma patients: a microbiological study in a large cohort of patients.

Eur J Clin Microbiol Infect Dis 2018 Feb 17;37(2):301-303. Epub 2017 Nov 17.

Dermatology Unit, I.R.C.C.S. Foundation Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Milan, Italy.

Kaposi 's sarcoma (KS) is a rare multifocal angioproliferative disease associated with human herpes virus 8 (HHV-8) infection, characterized by cutaneous nodules or plaques especially on the lower limbs. Some skin modifications, such as chronic lymphedema, plantar hyperkeratosis and interdigital desquamation, may be associated with consequent impairment of the local immunosurveillance and increased risk of some bacterial or mycotic infections. With the objective of evaluating if bacterial or mycotic infections in KS patients are supported by different microorganisms compared to control patients, we performed an observational retrospective study, comparing positive cultural swabs of interdigital intertrigo of KS patients with positive cultural swabs of interdigital intertrigo of patients admitted to our dermatologic unit during the last 10 years.
