Current Concepts on Pathogenic Mechanisms and Histopathology in Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2022 30;9:915828. Epub 2022 May 30.

Department of Dermatology and Allergy, University Hospital Bonn, Bonn, Germany.

Cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) is an interferon (IFN)-driven autoimmune disease that may be limited to the skin or can be associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). CLE occurs in several morphologic subtypes ranging from isolated, disc-shaped plaques to disseminated skin lesions. The typical histopathologic pattern of skin lesions is named interface dermatitis and characterized by a lymphocytic infiltrate and necroptotic keratinocytes at the dermo-epidermal junction.

Postepy Dermatol Alergol 2022 Apr 9;39(2):298-303. Epub 2022 May 9.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital, Krakow, Poland.

Introduction: Primary cicatricial alopecia (PCA) encompasses a heterogeneous group of inflammatory diseases characterized by the replacement of hair follicle structures by fibrous tissue. Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) and lichen planopilaris (LPP) are the most common causes of scarring alopecia. The distinction between both entities is often challenging because of significant clinical and histopathological overlap. Read More

Prominent B cell signature differentiates discoid from subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus.

J Invest Dermatol 2022 May 17. Epub 2022 May 17.

Department of Dermatology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY, USA; Department of Medicine, Division of Allergy/Immunology and Rheumatology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY, USA. Electronic address:

While B cells account for a significant proportion of the lymphocytic infiltrate in discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE), their contribution to pathogenesis is unknown. In this study, we compare the immune landscape of 17 subjects with DLE to 21 subjects with subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE) using transcriptomic and histologic analyses of lesional skin. A few of the subjects (3/17 DLE, 5/21 SCLE) had concomitant systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Read More

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus vs. Mixed Connective Tissue Disease Disguised As Scabies.

Cureus 2022 Mar 29;14(3):e23621. Epub 2022 Mar 29.

Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, USA.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease that involves numerous body systems and may initially present as a malar or discoid rash. When there are features of other autoimmune disorders present, such as scleroderma or polymyositis, the term mixed connective tissue disorder (MCTD) may be used. The current literature illustrates that the diagnostic criteria for MCTD are unclear. Read More

The Role of Reflectance Confocal Microscopy in the Evaluation of Pigmented Oral Lesions and Their Relationship With Histopathological Aspects.

Am J Dermatopathol 2022 May 3. Epub 2022 May 3.

Department of Stomatology, Dental School, University of Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Brazil; and.

Abstract: Oral pigmentations are a heterogeneous group and can be the result of physiological activity of oral mucosal melanocytes, secondary to exogenous causes, associated with systemic or local diseases, or due to proliferative activity of melanocytes. Their diagnosis is critical because these lesions can be markers of internal diseases or, in the case of melanocytic proliferative processes, they may represent a malignant neoplasm. In the past decade, the use of reflectance confocal microscopy, a noninvasive imaging tool, has aided the analysis of such lesions, but the establishment of firm criteria in their evaluation is still lacking.

Drugs Context 2022 16;11. Epub 2022 Mar 16.

CNR-IFC, Section of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, of Reggio Calabria, Italy.

Background: The anti-inflammatory drug, thalidomide, is often administered off-label especially in dermatology patients with diseases refractory to different medications. The drug's mechanism of action is not well understood but clinical evidence suggests an immunomodulatory function. Although this drug is a useful tool for several dermatoses, there are associations between its use and neurotoxic and teratogenic side effects. Read More

Ultraviolet light induces HERV expression to activate RIG-I signalling pathway in keratinocytes.

Exp Dermatol 2022 Mar 24. Epub 2022 Mar 24.

Department of Dermatology, Second Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, China.

Skin inflammation and photosensitivity are common in lupus erythematosus (LE) patients, and ultraviolet (UV) light is a known trigger of skin and possibly systemic inflammation in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) patients. Type I interferons (IFN) are upregulated in LE skin after UV exposure; however, the mechanisms to explain UVB-induced inflammation remain unclear. Here, we demonstrated that UVB irradiation-induced activation of human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) plays a major role in the immune response. Read More
