Darier disease successfully treated with a topical agent containing vitamin A (retinyl palmitate), vitamin E, and urea.

J Dermatol 2022 Apr 19. Epub 2022 Apr 19.

Department of Dermatology, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya, Japan.

Darier disease (DD), also called keratosis follicularis, is an autosomal dominant hereditary keratinization disorder that manifests as keratotic papules with plaques in seborrheic areas. There are no validated curative treatments for DD, with the majority of cases treated symptomatically. We report the efficacy of a topical over-the-counter agent which contains retinyl palmitate, vitamin E, and urea for a patient with DD. Read More

Whole-transcriptome sequencing identifies postzygotic ATP2A2 mutations in a patient misdiagnosed with herpes zoster, confirming the diagnosis of very late-onset segmental Darier disease.

Exp Dermatol 2022 Mar 5. Epub 2022 Mar 5.

Department Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology, Sidney Kimmel Medical College, and Jefferson Institute of Molecular Medicine, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

An 82-year-old female patient presented with a recent onset of painful skin lesions in unilateral distribution on the abdominal area following the lines of Blaschko; the initial diagnosis of Varicella-Zoster infection was made. However, because the individual lesions appeared as hyperkeratotic papules and were unresponsive to antiviral therapy, a skin biopsy was performed, which revealed hyperkeratosis, suprabasal acantholysis and dyskeratosis with corps ronds and grains, consistent with acantholytic dyskeratotic acanthoma. Since this entity has been associated with Darier disease, whole-transcriptome sequencing by RNA-Seq was performed on RNA isolated from a lesion and from adjacent normal appearing skin, and a recently developed bioinformatics pipeline that can identify both genomic sequence variants and the presence of any of 926 viruses was applied.

Clinicopathological correlation of transient acantholytic dermatosis: A case report.

Exp Ther Med 2022 Feb 28;23(2):173. Epub 2021 Dec 28.

Department of Dermatology, University of Medicine and Pharmacy 'Grigore T. Popa', 700115 Iasi, Romania.

Transient acantholytic dermatosis (TAD) is a benign, non-familial, non-immune mediated acantholytic disorder of unknown etiology. The presence of polymorphous, unorganized, pruritic lesions on the trunk, associated with focal acantholysis and dyskeratosis, resembles a wide variety of dermatoses. The etiology of TAD (also known as Grover's disease) is unknown, and the success of treatment relies on the correct identification of the disease; however, some cases are refractory to all forms of therapy.

Collagen VI is primarily not only associated with the extracellular matrix of skeletal muscle, but is also found in the skin, blood vessels, and other organs. Dermatologic findings described for Bethlem myopathy include follicular hyperkeratosis and abnormal scar formation, although clinical and histopathologic photographs remain elusive in the literature.

Darier and Hailey-Hailey disease: update 2021.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2021 10;19(10):1478-1501

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Allergology, University Würzburg, Würzburg, Germany.

The autosomal-dominant genodermatoses Darier disease and Hailey-Hailey disease present special challenges to dermatologists. Despite their similar pathogenesis featuring impaired adhesion of suprabasal keratinocytes as a result of defective ATPases in epidermal calcium channels, the two diseases differ considerably in clinical presentation and therapeutic options. Darier disease is characterized by reddish brown, keratotic papules in seborrheic and intertriginous areas, which may coalesce into extensive lesions. Read More

Darier's Disease Flare following COVID-19 Vaccine.

Case Rep Dermatol 2021 May-Aug;13(2):432-436. Epub 2021 Aug 18.

Department of Dermatology, Zealand University Hospital, Roskilde, Denmark.

Darier's disease is a rare genodermatosis characterized clinically by dyskeratotic papules in the seborrheic and intertriginous areas and nail abnormalities. Dyskeratosis and acantholysis are typical histological findings. Darier's disease is not known to be inflammatory by nature as inflammation occurs primarily due to local infections, and it may therefore differ from inflammatory dermatoses such as psoriasis and cutaneous lupus in response to antigen stimulation.

Maculopapular Cutaneous Mastocytosis Successfully Treated with Omalizumab.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2021 Apr;291(1):60-61

Theodora Kanni, MD, PhD, Department of Dermatology and Venereology Andreas Sygros Hospital , 5 Ionos Dragoumi Str, 161 21 Athens, Greece;

Dear Editor, Maculopapular cutaneous mastocytosis (MPCM), formerly telangiectasia macularis eruptiva perstans (TMEP), is an uncommon form of cutaneous mastocytosis first described on 1930 (1). It is more frequent in adults, and early diagnosis is crucial since it has been reported to be associated with serious underlying systemic disorders, such as myeloproliferative diseases and severe manifestations like anaphylaxis (2,3). Treatment of MPCM depends on the presence of systemic involvement and/or the clinical symptoms of the disease itself. Read More
