Patients with Darier Disease Exhibit Cognitive Impairment while Patients with Hailey-Hailey Disease Do Not: An Experimental, Matched Case-control Study.

Acta Derm Venereol 2021 Apr 30. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Dermatology and Venereology Division, Department of Medicine (Solna), Karolinska Institutet, SE-17176 Stockholm, Sweden.

Darier disease and Hailey-Hailey disease are severe, monogenetic dermatological disorders with mutations affecting all cells, making them liable to exhibit extra-dermal symptoms. The aim of this study is to assess broad cognitive function in individuals with these diseases, using an experimental, case-control set-up comparing cognition in patients with that in healthy controls matched for age, sex and level of education. Cognition was assessed with the Cambridge Neuropsycho-logical Test Automated Battery. Read More

Use of H-1 Antihistamine in Dermatology: More than Itch and Urticaria Control: A Systematic Review.

Dermatol Ther (Heidelb) 2021 Apr 12. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Department of Dermatology, National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

H-1 antihistamines are commonly used in dermatological practice for itch and urticaria control. The widespread expression of H-1 receptor on different cells in the skin and various biologic functions of H-1 antihistamines indicate the possible treatment potentials of H-1 antihistamines in dermatology. A literature search was performed on PubMed and Embase, targeting articles reporting use of antihistamine for purposes other than itch and urticaria control in dermatological practice. Read More

Basal cell carcinoma associated with non-neoplastic cutaneous conditions: a comprehensive review.

Philip R Cohen

Dermatol Online J 2021 Feb 15;27(2). Epub 2021 Feb 15.

San Diego Family Dermatology, National City, CA Touro University California College of Osteopathic Medicine, Vallejo, CA.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) can be a component of a collision tumor in which the skin cancer is present at the same cutaneous site as either a benign tumor or a malignant neoplasm. However, BCC can also concurrently occur at the same skin location as a non-neoplastic cutaneous condition. These include autoimmune diseases (vitiligo), cutaneous disorders (Darier disease), dermal conditions (granuloma faciale), dermal depositions (amyloid, calcinosis cutis, cutaneous focal mucinosis, osteoma cutis, and tattoo), dermatitis, miscellaneous conditions (rhinophyma, sarcoidal reaction, and varicose veins), scars, surgical sites, systemic diseases (sarcoidosis), systemic infections (leischmaniasis, leprosy and lupus vulgaris), and ulcers.

Darier Disease - A Multi-organ Condition?

Acta Derm Venereol 2021 Apr 15;101(4):adv00430. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Department of Medicine Solna, Karolinska Institutet, SE-171 76 Stockholm, Sweden. E-mail:

Darier disease is a severe, rare autosomal dominant inherited skin condition caused by mutations in the ATP2A2 gene encoding sarcoendoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase isoform 2 in the endoplasmic reticulum. Since sarcoendoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase isoform 2 is expressed in most tissues, and intracellular calcium homeostasis is of fundamental importance, it is conceivable that other organs besides the skin may be involved in Darier disease. This review focusses on the association of Darier disease with other organ dysfunctions and diseases, emphasizing their common molecular pathology. Read More

Botulinum toxin injections as an effective treatment for patients with intertriginous Hailey-Hailey or Darier disease: an open-label 6-month pilot interventional study.

Orphanet J Rare Dis 2021 02 18;16(1):93. Epub 2021 Feb 18.

Reference Centre for Rare Skin Diseases, Dermatology Department (CRMRP), Larrey University Hospital, 24, Chemin de Pouvourville TSA 30030, 31059, Toulouse, France.

Background: Patients with Hailey-Hailey and Darier diseases present with disabling inflammatory lesions located in large skin folds, which are often exacerbated or induced by sweating. Quality of life is highly impaired because of pain and recurrent skin infections. An improvement in skin lesions after botulinum toxin A injections has previously been reported in some patients but no prospective interventional studies are available. Read More

Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol 2021 Jan-Feb;87(1):14-21

Department of Dermatology, Saint George Hospital University Medical Center, Beirut, Lebanon.

Darier disease (DD) is a rare type of inherited keratinizing disorder with no definitive therapeutic approach. The objective of this study is to provide a detailed literature review of all the available treatment modalities of Darier disease, including those that are both surgical and non surgical, to compare their efficacies and to propose a novel therapeutic approach. A complete search of the literature for all articles describing the different treatments of Darier disease, with no restrictions on patients' ages, gender or nationalities, was performed with the use of PubMed.

Dermatol Online J 2020 Nov 15;26(11). Epub 2020 Nov 15.

Department of Dermatology, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, Newport.

Darier disease is considered a hereditary acantholytic dermatosis that is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner and usually manifests in the first or second decade of life. We describe a 62-year-old man with an acquired variant of Darier disease after a recent diagnosis of metastatic prostate cancer. We discuss and postulate a novel mechanism for this unusual presentation. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria. Electronic address:

WFDC proteins such as peptidase inhibitor 3 and SLPI inhibit proteases in the epidermis and other tissues. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that further WFDC protein family members might contribute to epidermal homeostasis. We found that in addition to peptidase inhibitor 3 and SLPI, WFDC5 and WFDC12 were expressed in human epidermis. Read More

Type 1 Segmental Darier Disease: Case Report and Discussion of the Treatment Options.

Case Rep Dermatol 2020 Sep-Dec;12(3):159-167. Epub 2020 Sep 11.

Dermatology Teaching Assistant, King Abdul Aziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Darier disease is a rare type of autosomal dominant genodermatosis, and it is caused by a mutation in the gene coding for the endoplasmic reticulum membrane calcium pump Ca-ATPase type 2, leading to compromised intercellular adhesion. Moreover, this condition is characterized by multiple keratotic greasy papules with a seborrheic distribution and is worsened by heat and sun exposure, sweating, and friction. Occasionally, it may be associated with nail abnormalities and may involve the mucosa. Read More
