Autoimmunity in Segmental Vitiligo.

Front Immunol 2020 27;11:568447. Epub 2020 Oct 27.

Department of Dermatology, Gent University Hospital, Gent, Belgium.

The autoimmune basis of segmental vitiligo (SV) has only recently been recognized. Systemic autoimmune diseases are less frequently associated compared to non-segmental vitiligo (NSV), but localized skin disorders - in particular linear morphea - have been repeatedly observed in patients with SV. The inflammatory response is documented on a clinical level with cases displaying erythematous borders or a hypochromic stage, on a histopathological level with predominantly CD8 lymphocytes migrating toward the basal layer and by flow cytometry demonstrating the antimelanocyte specificity of these cytotoxic T cells.

Blaschkolinear Acquired Inflammatory Skin Eruption (BLAISE): Case Report of a Young Man Whose Dermatosis had Features of Lichen Striatus and Blaschkitis.

Cureus 2020 Oct 3;12(10):e10785. Epub 2020 Oct 3.

Dermatology, San Diego Family Dermatology, National City, USA.

Cutaneous conditions can follow Blaschko's lines on the skin, which are thought to reflect patterns of cell migration and clonal expansion during embryonic development of the epidermis. These diseases are hypothesized to be caused by genetic mosaicism resulting from processes such as lyonization or somatic postzygotic mutation. Lichen striatus and blaschkitis are two such acquired inflammatory skin disorders that are distinguished in the literature by age of onset, location, and histopathological features. Read More

Nail lichen striatus: Is dermoscopy useful for the diagnosis?

Pediatr Dermatol 2019 Nov 30;36(6):859-863. Epub 2019 Jul 30.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Experimental, Diagnostic and Specialty Medicine, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

Background/objectives: Lichen striatus is a unilateral inflammatory dermatosis that rarely affects the nail unit. When the inflammation involves the nail unit, classic lichenoid nail changes are easily detectable, more often limited to only one portion of the nail. Usually the nail dystrophy coexists with periungual skin papules following Blaschko's lines, but it could also be an isolated feature. Read More

Syringotropic Lichen Planus: A Potential Histopathologic Mimicker of Syringotropic Mycosis Fungoides.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 May;41(5):e50-e53

Research Unit Dermatopathology, Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Graz, Graz, Austria.

Perieccrine inflammation may be observed in several different dermatoses, but true permeation of the secretory coil by lymphocytes (lymphocytic syringotropism) is a rather uncommon finding, usually observed in mycosis fungoides (MF-syringotropic MF). Rare cases of syringotropic lichen striatus and lymphocytic autoimmune hidradenitis showing a similar pattern have been described as well. We describe an exceptional case of lichen planus (LP) characterized by marked lymphocytic syringotropism with focal hyperplasia of the eccrine epithelium. Read More

Adult blaschkolinear acquired inflammatory skin eruption (BLAISE) with simultaneous features of lichen striatus and blaschkitis.

Dermatol Online J 2018 Jan 15;24(1). Epub 2018 Jan 15.

Department of Dermatology, Centro Hospitalar do Porto, Portugal.

Blaschkitis and lichen striatus are generally distinguished in the literature by the age of onset, lesion distribution, and histopathology. However, there is currently no clear consensus among authors about whether to consider blaschkitis and lichen striatus different clinical entities or a spectrum ofthe same disease. We present a case of adult BLAISE with features of both lichen striatus and blaschkitis, which seems to support the theory that these clinical entities may in fact represent a spectrum of the same pathological process.
