Cutaneous Manifestations of "Lupus": Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Beyond.

Int J Rheumatol 2021 18;2021:6610509. Epub 2021 May 18.

Department of Medicine, Division of Rheumatology, Dell Medical School at the University of Texas, Austin 78701, USA.

Lupus, Latin for "wolf," is a term used to describe many dermatologic conditions, some of which are related to underlying systemic lupus erythematosus, while others are distinct disease processes. Cutaneous lupus erythematosus includes a wide array of visible skin manifestations and can progress to systemic lupus erythematosus in some cases. Cutaneous lupus can be subdivided into three main categories: acute cutaneous lupus erythematosus, subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus, and chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus. Read More

Atypical and Rare Forms of Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus: The Importance of the Diagnosis for the Best Management of Patients.

Dermatology 2021 Jun 3:1-10. Epub 2021 Jun 3.

Section of Dermatology, Department of Health Sciences, University of Genoa, Genoa, Italy.

Lupus erythematosus (LE) is an autoimmune disease with a wide range of clinical and cutaneous manifestations. Along with the well-known typical cutaneous manifestations of LE, some cutaneous manifestations are rarer, but still characteristic, enabling the dermatologist and the general practitioner who know them to suspect cutaneous LE (CLE) and investigate a possible underlying systemic involvement. Indeed, not infrequently a skin manifestation is the first presentation of systemic LE (SLE), and >75% of SLE patients show signs of skin disease during the course of the illness. Read More

Expression pattern of tissue-resident memory T cells in cutaneous lupus erythematosus.

Lupus 2021 May 20:9612033211017218. Epub 2021 May 20.

Department of Dermatology, Gachon University Gil Medical Center, Gachon University College of Medicine, Incheon, Korea.

Background: Tissue resident memory T cells (TRMs) persist long-term in peripheral tissues without recirculation, triggering an immediate protective inflammatory state upon the re-recognition of the antigen. Despite evidence incriminating the dysregulation of TRMs in autoimmune diseases, few studies have examined their expression in cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE).

Objectives: We aimed to examine whether there are differences among TRM populations in CLE depending on different clinical conditions, such as the CLE subtype or association with systemic lupus erythematosus, and to determine the effect of type I interferon (IFN) on the development of TRMs in CLE.

Role of biomarkers in the diagnosis and prognosis of patients with cutaneous lupus erythematosus.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Mar;9(5):429

Department of Dermatology, University of Texas at Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX, USA.

Cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) is a connective tissue disease with varying presentations, and clinical sequelae including itching, dyspigmentation, and scarring. CLE can occur as its own entity or in conjunction with systemic disease, known as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Because CLE is clinically diverse, identification of a biomarker may help not only facilitate early diagnosis and management but also identify individuals at risk for poor prognosis and development of SLE.

Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus triggered after measles vaccination.

Lupus 2021 Apr 11;30(5):833-835. Epub 2021 Feb 11.

Dermatology clinic, Faculdade Meridional 130248IMED, Passo Fundo-RS, Brazil.

Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE) is a subtype of cutaneous lupus erythematosus that can be triggered by endogenous or exogenous factors. Among the exogenous factors are some medications, drugs, tobacco, infections, and vaccines. In this context, the benefits of vaccination are questioned because although it is important to prevent infections in immunosuppressed patients a theoretical risk of developing systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) remains in these patients.

Lupus erythematosus: Significance of dermatologic findings.

Ann Dermatol Venereol 2021 Mar 19;148(1):6-15. Epub 2021 Jan 19.

Faculty of medicine, University of Strasbourg, and Dermatology clinic, Strasbourg university hospital, Strasbourg, France. Electronic address:

Herein, the different skin manifestations in patients with lupus erythematosus are reviewed, and their diagnostic, pathogenic and prognostic relevance are discussed, as well as their impact on therapeutic choices. The so-called specific lesions of LE result from an autoimmune pathomechanism and they allow diagnosis of LE by simple clinicopathological correlation since the findings are characteristic. They include the classic acute, subacute and chronic variants, characterised microscopically by interface dermatitis; the dermal variants of lupus, such as tumid lupus, displaying dermal perivascular lymphocytic infiltrate with mucin deposition under the microscope, and lupus profundus, in which lymphocytic lobular panniculitis progressing to hyaline fibrosis is found.
