Genotype-structurotype-phenotype correlations in pachyonychia congenita patients.

J Invest Dermatol 2021 Jun 8. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Department of Dermatology, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA. Electronic address:

Pachyonychia congenita (PC) is a genetic disorder of keratin that presents with nail dystrophy, painful palmoplantar keratoderma, and other clinical manifestations. We investigated genotype-structurotype-phenotype correlations seen with mutations in keratin genes (KRT6A, KRT6B, KRT6C, KRT16, KRT17) and utilized protein structure modeling of high frequency mutations to examine the functional importance of keratin structural domains in PC pathogenesis. Participants of the International PC Research Registry underwent genetic testing and completed a standardized survey on their symptoms. Read More

What's the resolutive surgery for pseudo-ainhum in Vohwinkel syndrome? A case report and review of the literature.

Orthop Rev (Pavia) 2020 Dec 1;12(4):8868. Epub 2021 Feb 1.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery (DICHIRONS), Università degli Studi di Palermo.

Vohwinkel Syndrome, also known as Keratoderma Hereditarium Mutilans, is an extremely rare dominant autosomal keratosis. It typically presents with "starfish" keratoses on the knuckles, palmoplantar keratoderma (PPK), hearing impairment and mutilating digital constriction bands (pseudoainhum) that cause strangulation, often leading to autoamputation of the affected digit. Both medical and surgical treatment haven't shown to date consistent results, in the treatment of pseudoainhum. Read More

Biomed Res Int 2021 27;2021:8841994. Epub 2021 Jan 27.

Department of Orthopaedics, West China Hospital of Sichuan University, No. 37 Guoxue Alley, Wuhou District, Chengdu, 610041 Sichuan, China.

Nagashima-type palmoplantar keratosis (NPPK) is the most prevalent palmoplantar keratoderma (PPK) in East Asia. Homozygous or compound heterozygous loss-of-function mutations in serpin peptidase inhibitor, clade B (ovalbumin), and member 70 (SERPINB7), which encodes members of the serine protease inhibitor superfamily, have been identified as the cause of NPPK. Clinical manifestations of NPPK include well-demarcated erythema, mild to moderate hyperkeratosis on the whole palm, and sole with transgrediens, extending to the dorsal surfaces of the hands and feet, inner wrists, ankles, and the Achilles tendon areas.
