Severe vemurafenib-induced photosensitivity in a 6-year-old boy.

Pediatr Dermatol 2019 Jan 26;36(1):e62-e63. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Vemurafenib, a selective BRAF kinase inhibitor, has been found to induce several cutaneous adverse effects, ranging from a keratosis pilaris-like reaction to squamous cell carcinoma. While photosensitivity has been well described as one of these manifestations, we report a case of a 6-year-old boy on vemurafenib who developed a severe blistering sunburn after only two 30-minute episodes of sun exposure. A brief review of other common cutaneous adverse effects of vemurafenib is also provided. Read More

Keratosis Pilaris and its Subtypes: Associations, New Molecular and Pharmacologic Etiologies, and Therapeutic Options.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2018 Oct;19(5):733-757

The Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology, New York University School of Medicine, 240 East 38th Street, 11th Floor, New York, NY, 10016, USA.

Keratosis pilaris is a common skin disorder comprising less common variants and rare subtypes, including keratosis pilaris rubra, erythromelanosis follicularis faciei et colli, and the spectrum of keratosis pilaris atrophicans. Data, and critical analysis of existing data, are lacking, so the etiologies, pathogeneses, disease associations, and treatments of these clinical entities are poorly understood. The present article aims to fill this knowledge gap by reviewing literature in the PubMed, EMBASE, and CINAHL databases and providing a comprehensive, analytical summary of the clinical characteristics and pathophysiology of keratosis pilaris and its subtypes through the lens of disease associations, genetics, and pharmacologic etiologies.

Exacerbation of ichthyosis vulgaris phenotype by co-inheritance of STS and FLG mutations in a Chinese family with ichthyosis: a case report.

BMC Med Genet 2018 07 18;19(1):120. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Department of Rehabilitation, Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University, Wuhan, 430000, China.

Background: X-linked ichthyosis (XLI) is a recessive keratinization condition caused by deficient activity of steroid-sulfatase due to mutations in steroid sulfatase (STS) gene located on the X chromosome. In contrast, ichthyosis vulgaris (IV) is caused by filaggrin deficiency due to semi-dominant loss-of-function mutations of filaggrin (FLG) gene. Filaggrin defects could synergize with XLI to exacerbate its phenotype. Read More

Dermal Microflora Restoration With Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacteria Nitrosomonas Eutropha in the Treatment of Keratosis Pilaris: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 Mar;17(3):285-288

Keratosis pilaris (KP) is a common skin finding that presents as follicular hyperkeratotic papules on the proximal extremities in patients with a propensity for atopy. Although often asymptomatic, the stippled appearance is cosmetically disturbing to patients and difficult to treat as current therapies are limited in availability and efficacy. Nitric oxide (NO) has been found to be essential in basic systemic and cutaneous physiologic function, specifically in terms of its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties, which evolutionarily was maintained by ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB).

Lichenoid folliculitis: A unifying concept.

J Cutan Pathol 2017 Jul 5;44(7):647-654. Epub 2017 May 5.

Department of Dermatology, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Los Angeles, Maryland.

Skin diseases presenting with keratotic papules, atrophy, cicatricial alopecia and/or "lichenoid" histopathologic changes have been described under at least 30 names. This family of diseases contains 2 subgroups, largely based on clinical features: keratosis pilaris atrophicans (KPA; including keratosis pilaris atrophicans faciei/ulerythema ophryogenes, atrophoderma vermiculatum, and keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans); and the lichen planopilaris (LPP) subgroup (including LPP, frontal fibrosing alopecia, Graham-Little-Piccardi-Lassueur Syndrome and fibrosing alopecia in a pattern distribution). An interface dermatitis with lichenoid inflammation is characteristic of the LPP group of disorders, but the literature provides scant information about the histopathology of the KPA group.

New insights into folliculotropic mycosis fungoides (FMF): A single-center experience.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2016 Aug 28;75(2):347-55. Epub 2016 May 28.

Institute of Pathology, Rabin Medical Center, Beilinson Hospital, Petah Tikva, Israel; Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Background: It is generally accepted that folliculotropic mycosis fungoides (FMF) is usually typified by indurated plaques and tumors mainly on the head/neck and an aggressive course. However, its clinical manifestations have long been recognized to be quite variable, and some studies indicate a better prognosis for certain presentations.

Objective: We sought to summarize our experience with the clinicopathological presentations of FMF and impact on prognosis. Read More

Case Rep Dermatol 2016 Jan-Apr;8(1):91-6. Epub 2016 Apr 21.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, National University Health Systems, Singapore, Singapore.

Nilotinib is a second-generation Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) that is approved for the treatment of imatinib-resistant chronic myeloid leukaemia expressing the Bcr-Abl mutation. Cutaneous adverse drug reactions occur more frequently in patients using this medication. We present a case of nilotinib-induced keratosis pilaris that did not have accompanying symptoms of alopecia or pruritus. Read More

Trichostasis Spinulosa: An Unusual Diagnosis Presenting as a Double Lower Eyelid.

Int J Trichology 2016 Jan-Mar;8(1):21-3

Department of Pathology, ESI-PGIMSR and ESIC Medical College, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

Trichostasis spinulosa (TS) is a relatively common but underdiagnosed disorder of the pilosebaceous follicles in which there is follicular hyperkeratosis of a dilated hair follicle with retention of telogen hairs. Clinical presentation of this disorder can be confused with comedogenic acne, keratosis pilaris, eruptive vellus hair cysts, and Favre-Racouchot syndrome. A case of a nonpruritic variant of TS in a 16-year-old boy is reported because of its unusual location as well as presentation in the lower eyelid, giving an appearance of a double eyelid. Read More

When Acne is Not Acne.

Dermatol Clin 2016 Apr;34(2):225-8

Department of Dermatology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, 5 East 98 Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10029, USA.

Acne vulgaris (AV) is considered a straightforward diagnosis made clinically without specific diagnostic testing. However, certain disorders may simulate AV, such as multiple small epidermal cysts or deep milia, multiple osteoma cutis, multiple small adnexal neoplasms, and follicular and/or infections characterized by multiple small papules and/or pustules such as gram-positive folliculitis, gram-negative folliculitis, Malassezia folliculitis, keratosis pilaris, and flat warts. This can lead to an erroneous diagnosis and improper management. Read More
