Atypical Varicella-Zoster Kaposi Varicelliform Eruption in Sézary Syndrome.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Dec;40(12):920-923

Summit Medical Group, Morristown, NJ.

Patients with mycosis fungoides experience considerable morbidity and mortality from secondary bacterial and viral infections. Staphylococcus aureus, β-hemolytic streptococci, herpes simplex virus, and herpes zoster virus remain the most common infectious pathogens in this group of patients. With depressed cellular immunity and diminished skin barrier as the main precipitating risk factors, immunocompromised patients can often present with an atypical presentation of a common dermatologic condition.

Loss of ATP2A2 Allows Herpes Simplex Virus 1 Infection of a Human Epidermis Model by Disrupting Innate Immunity and Barrier Function.

J Invest Dermatol 2018 Dec 2;138(12):2540-2549. Epub 2018 Jun 2.

Department of Dermatology, Fukuoka University Faculty of Medicine, Fukuoka, Japan; Department of Dermatology, Fukuoka University Hospital, Fukuoka, Japan.

Destruction of epidermal barrier function associated with atopic dermatitis or Darier's disease often causes severe secondary skin infections. Patients with skin barrier disorders often repeatedly acquire Kaposi varicelliform eruption, which is caused by herpes simplex virus, but the underlying mechanisms and effective preventive methods have yet to be found. Viral infection through an impaired epidermal barrier can be prevented by enhancing innate immunity and/or inhibiting viral entry. Read More

Not all that vesicles is herpes.

Diagnosis (Berl) 2017 11;4(4):261-264

Department of Pediatrics, University of Minnesota Medical School, Minneapolis, MN, USA.

Background: Eczema coxsackium (EC) can manifest in patients with underlying atopic dermatitis (AD) as a diffuse vesicular rash in a febrile child. The presentation overlaps clinically with the feared diagnosis of eczema herpeticum (EH), which makes differentiating between the conditions very important.

Case Presentation: A 6-month-old girl with known AD presented with fever and rapidly spreading vesicular rash. Read More

Induction, treatment and prevention of eczema vaccinatum in atopic dermatitis mouse models.

Vaccine 2017 07 20;35(33):4245-4254. Epub 2017 Jun 20.

Department of Infectious Diseases, Israel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR), Ness-Ziona, Israel. Electronic address:

Eczema vaccinatum is a severe and occasionally lethal complication of smallpox vaccine, characterized by systemic viral dissemination, distant from the initial inoculation site of the vaccine. A major risk factor for eczema vaccinatum is a background of atopic dermatitis, a chronic, common allergic, relapsing disorder, manifested by dry and inflamed skin, itchy rash, Th2 biased immune response and hypersensitivity to various antigens. Unlike the severe manifestations of eczema vaccinatum in humans, current models present only mild symptoms that limits examination of potential therapeutics for eczema vaccinatum. Read More

IL-1R Type 1-Deficient Mice Demonstrate an Impaired Host Immune Response against Cutaneous Vaccinia Virus Infection.

J Immunol 2017 06 3;198(11):4341-4351. Epub 2017 May 3.

Pediatric Rheumatology, University of Colorado-Denver, Aurora, CO 80045

The IL-1 superfamily of cytokines and receptors has been studied extensively. However, the specific roles of IL-1 elements in host immunity to cutaneous viral infection remain elusive. In this study, we applied vaccinia virus (VACV) by scarification to IL-1R1 knockout mice (IL-1R1) and found that these mice developed markedly larger lesions with higher viral genome copies in skin than did wild-type mice.

Atopic dermatitis is characterized by the interplay of skin barrier defects with the immune system and skin microbiome that causes patients to be at risk for infectious complications. This article reviews the pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis and the mechanisms through which patients are at risk for infection from bacterial, viral, and fungal pathogens. Although these complications may be managed acutely, prevention of secondary infections depends on a multipronged approach in the maintenance of skin integrity, control of flares, and microbial pathogens.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Detroit Medical Center, Wayne State University, 3990 John R., 7 Brush N., Detroit, MI 48201, USA.

Kaposi varicelliform eruption (KVE) is a widespread cutaneous viral infection, most commonly herpes simplex virus, which affects patients with underlying dermatosis. When KVE occurs in a patient with a history of psoriasis, it is referred to as psoriasis herpeticum, a rare subtype of KVE with only a handful of cases reported in the literature. To the authors' knowledge, we report for the first time a case of psoriasis herpeticum in pregnancy. Read More

From the *School of Medicine and †Department of Dermatology, New York Medical College, New York, NY; ‡Dermatology, The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School, Austin, TX.

Eczema herpeticum is an easily missed entity most commonly seen in the pediatric population and carries the risk of systemic compromise and a 10% mortality rate. Clinicians should maintain high clinical suspicion when encountering children or young adults with a history of atopic dermatitis or other erosive dermatoses and who present with vesicular lesions, punched-out erosions, and systemic symptoms. We present 3 severe cases of eczema herpeticum that were potentially overlooked and demonstrate the need for elevated awareness to avoid potential pitfalls. Read More

Background: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a heterogenous and highly complex disease characterized by an increased microbial colonization. For unknown reasons, a subgroup of patients with AD develops Eczema herpeticum (EH), a severe viral complication due to spreading of herpes simplex virus (HSV). Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO1) is a tryptophan (Trp)-catabolizing enzyme which is assumed to be instrumental in the antibacterial and antiviral defence mechanisms. Read More

[Eczema herpeticum in a patient with atopic dermatitis, carrying r501x and 2282del4 filaggrin null mutations].

Gac Med Mex 2015 Mar-Apr;151(2):252-5

Departamento de Dermatología, Hospital Central «Dr. Ignacio Morones Prieto», Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí, San Luis Potosí, S.L.P., Mexico.

Eczema herpeticum is an acute dermatoses caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 in atopic dermatitis patients, and is considered a dermatology emergency. Eczema herpeticum occurs in less than 3% of atopic patients. We report a patient with a history of atopic dermatitis who presented to an emergency department with eczema herpeticum. Read More

Increased large unstained cells value in varicella patients: A valuable parameter to aid rapid diagnosis of varicella infection.

J Dermatol 2015 08 28;42(8):795-9. Epub 2015 Apr 28.

Department of Dermatology, Severance Hospital, Cutaneous Biology Research Institute, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Varicella is a highly contagious infection caused by varicella zoster virus. Sometimes it is difficult to differentiate between other viral infections such as Kaposi's varicelliform eruption (KVE) and disseminated herpes zoster (HZ). The large unstained cells (LUC) value is a differential count parameter reported by routing hematology analysis. Read More

Filaggrin deficiency promotes the dissemination of cutaneously inoculated vaccinia virus.

J Allergy Clin Immunol 2015 Jun 30;135(6):1511-8.e6. Epub 2015 Jan 30.

Division of Immunology, Boston Children's Hospital and the Department of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Mass.

Background: Eczema vaccinatum is a life-threatening complication of smallpox vaccination in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) characterized by dissemination of vaccinia virus (VV) in the skin and internal organs. Mutations in the filaggrin (FLG) gene, the most common genetic risk factor for AD, confer a greater risk for eczema herpeticum in patients with AD, suggesting that it impairs the response to cutaneous viral infections.

Objective: We sought to determine the effects of FLG deficiency on the response of mice to cutaneous VV inoculation. Read More

Genetic characterization of human coxsackievirus A6 variants associated with atypical hand, foot and mouth disease: a potential role of recombination in emergence and pathogenicity.

J Gen Virol 2015 May 22;96(Pt 5):1067-79. Epub 2015 Jan 22.

Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh, Easter Bush, Edinburgh EH25 9RG, UK

Human coxsackievirus A6 (CVA6) is an enterically transmitted enterovirus. Until recently, CVA6 infections were considered as being of minor clinical significance, and only rarely aetiologically linked with hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) associated with other species A enteroviruses (particularly EV71 and CVA16). From 2008 onwards, however, CVA6 infections have been associated with several outbreaks worldwide of atypical HFMD (aHFMD) accompanied by a varicelliform rash. Read More
