Morphea: a practical review of its diagnosis, classification and treatment.

Gac Med Mex 2019 ;155(5):483-491

Instituto Nacional de Pediatría, Dermatology Department, Mexico City, Mexico.

Morphea, or localized scleroderma, is a rare disease of the connective tissue that manifests itself with localized sclerosis of the skin and, in some cases, with extracutaneous manifestations. Its etiology is not fully understood, but it is believed that there is genetic predisposition, in addition to environmental triggering factors. Classification of the disease is not simple due to its multiple presentations; however, it is useful in order to define the treatment, which should be individualized and started early to avoid cosmetic and functional complications.

Lichen Sclerosus in Prepubertal Girls: An Uncommon but Treatable Cause of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms.

Urology 2020 Mar 7;137:e1-e2. Epub 2020 Jan 7.

Gynecology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT.

Lichen sclerosus (LS) is a chronic inflammatory dermatosis commonly visualized in the anogenital region with porcelain-white atrophic patches that extend to the perianal region in a figure-of-eight configuration. While LS is known to increase lower urinary tract symptoms and incontinence in postmenopausal women, the age distribution is bimodal and literature on the LS impact in prepubertal girls remains limited. There is an association with autoimmune conditions and the pathogenesis is thought to be autoimmune with an underlying genetic predisposition. Read More

Department of Medicine (Division of Genomic Medicine), and Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Tropical Medicine, The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Washington, DC.

Lichen sclerosus (LS) is an inflammatory dermatosis with a predilection for anogenital skin. Developing lesions lead to vulvar pain and sexual dysfunction, with a significant loss of structural anatomical architecture, sclerosis, and increased risk of malignancy. Onset may occur at any age in both sexes, but typically affects more females than males, presenting in a bimodal fashion among pre-pubertal children and middle-aged adults. Read More

The pathogenesis of vulvar squamous neoplasia has 2 pathways: human papillomavirus (HPV)-dependent and HPV-independent. The HPV-dependent pathway in the vulva follows the same progression as HPV-dependent lesions elsewhere in the gynecologic tract-HPV infection results in high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion with subsequent progression to basaloid squamous cell carcinoma. The HPV-independent pathway is more complex, with a variety of precursor lesions and molecular alterations. Read More
