Anti-HMGCR myopathy: clinical and histopathological features, and prognosis.

Curr Opin Rheumatol 2021 11;33(6):554-562

Department of Neurology, National Hospital Organization Kure Medical Center and Chugoku Cancer Center, Kure, Hiroshima, Japan.

Purpose Of Review: This review aims to describe clinical and pathological features, prognosis and treatment in patients with anti-HMGCR antibody positive immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy (HMGCR-IMNM) based on recent findings.

Recent Findings: Using advances in diagnostic modalities that can confirm the presence of anti-HMGCR antibody, the clinical and pathological manifestations of HMGCR-IMNM were found to be broader than previously reported. Although only a small percentage of HMGCR-IMNM patients present with atypical manifestations, some of these patients show slow disease progression and clinical symptoms, which are similar to those of limb-girdle muscular dystrophies.

Unilateral unique Lupus tumidus: pathogenetic mystery and diagnostic problem.

Wien Med Wochenschr 2016 May 13;166(7-8):250-3. Epub 2016 Jan 13.

Policlinic for Dermatology and Venereology, University Hospital Lozenetz, Koziak street 1, 1407, Sofia, Bulgaria.

Lupus tumidus is a rare immunological disorder whose pathogenesis is not fully understood. Although on the one hand there are some differences in (1) the clinical morphology of lesions, (2) the histopathology picture, as well as in (3) serological profile of lupus tumidus patients at the current moment, the disease is regarded as a subform of chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus. Differential diagnosis requires the exclusion of many diseases such as Jessner Kanoff lymphocytic infiltration, polymorphous light eruption, and reticular erythematous mucinosis. Read More

The expanding spectrum of cutaneous borreliosis.

K Eisendle B Zelger

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2009 Apr;144(2):157-71

Department of Dermatology and Venerology, Innsbruck Medical University, Innsbruck, Austria.

The known spectrum of skin manifestations in cutaneous Lyme disease is continuously expanding and can not be regarded as completed. Besides the classical manifestations of cutaneous borreliosis like erythema (chronicum) migrans, borrelial lymphocytoma and acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans evidence is growing that at least in part also other skin manifestations, especially morphea, lichen sclerosus and cases of cutaneous B-cell lymphoma are causally related to infections with Borrelia. Also granuloma annulare and interstitial granulomatous dermatitis might be partly caused by Borrelia burgdorferi or similar strains. Read More

A review of 55 cases of cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia: reassessment of the histopathologic findings leading to reclassification of 4 lesions as cutaneous marginal zone lymphoma and 19 as pseudolymphomatous folliculitis.

Hum Pathol 2005 May;36(5):505-11

Department of Pathology, Saitama Medical School, Iruma-gun, Japan.

To clarify the confusion surrounding the diagnosis of cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia (CLH) that was formerly described as lymphadenosis benigna cutis, lymphocytoma cutis, or lymphocytic infiltration of Jessner and to assess whether newly recognized diagnoses, such as cutaneous marginal zone lymphoma and pseudolymphomatous folliculitis (PLF), may have been overlooked, we reexamined 55 Japanese cases of nonepidermotropic lymphoproliferative disorder that had previously been diagnosed as "cutaneous pseudolymphoma." In all these cases, the immunohistochemical expressions of CD1a, CD3, CD4, CD8, CD20, CD21, CD30, CD43, CD56, CD68, CD79a, kappa and lambda chains, S-100 protein, and latent membrane protein were assessed. In addition, in 13 cases the gene rearrangement of the immunoglobulin heavy chain was investigated using a polymerase chain reaction method. Read More

Jessner-Kanof lymphocytic infiltration of the skin associated with glatiramer acetate.

Mult Scler 2005 Apr;11(2):245-8

Department of Neurology, University of Cologne, 50924 Cologne, Germany.

Glatiramer acetate (GLAT) is a well tolerated and safe immunomodulatory drug for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. The most commonly recognized side effects are localized injection site reactions consisting of pain, pruritus, mild erythema and induration, which sometimes persist for several days. We describe the first case of a biopsy-proven lymphocytic infiltration (T-cell pseudolymphoma) with the clinical appearance of a figured erythema on the ventrolateral thighs in the first four weeks under GLAT treatment, resolving without any evidence of recurrence despite ongoing therapy.

[Palpable migratory acriform erythema and lymphocytic infiltration of the skin--different presentations of the same entity?].

Hautarzt 1999 Apr;50(4):270-4

Abteilung für Dermatologie und Allergologie, Städt. Krankenhaus München-Schwabing, Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus des Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.

Palpable arciform migratory erythema of Clark (PAME) has been described as a rare member in the group of T-cell pseudolymphoma. The clinical picture of infiltrated annular erythema developing into large migrating lesions with the trunk as predilection site is distinctive from other pseudolymphomas. Because of the very similar histology and immunohistochemistry in comparison to the more frequent lymphocytic infiltration of the skin of Jessner and Kanof (LIS) doubts have been raised about the existence of PAME as an unique entity.

Immunohistochemical analysis of dermal mononuclear cell infiltrates in cutaneous lupus erythematosus, polymorphous light eruption, lymphocytic infiltration of Jessner, and cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia: a comparative differential study.

J Cutan Pathol 1994 Oct;21(5):430-6

Department of Pathology, Chang Gung College of Medicine and Technology, Tao Yuan, Taiwan.

Cutaneous lupus erythematosus (LE), polymorphous light-eruption (PMLE), lymphocytic infiltration of Jessner (LIJ), and cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia (CLH) are often difficult to differentiate from one another by light microscopic examination. We conducted an immunohistochemical analysis of the mononuclear cell infiltrates in 13 LE, 12 PMLE, 10 LIJ, and 13 CLH with various antibodies. Antibodies L26, UCHL1, and S100 achieved statistically significant differences among the four diseases, but because of the overlaps in the number of UCHL1(+) T cells and S100 protein (+) cells in individual cases, these two antibodies were not useful.
