B cell depletion therapy using rituximab to induce long-term remission of recalcitrant skin lesions of subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 May 27;15(5). Epub 2022 May 27.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India

A woman in her 20s presented with chilblains for 2 years and recent-onset photodistributed psoriasiform plaques. She did not have persistent good improvement despite treatment with 1 mg/kg oral prednisolone, along with successive trials with many steroid-sparing adjuvants in adequate dosage and duration, including hydroxychloroquine, methotrexate and cyclosporine, in the following 6 months. The patient had an excellent improvement and went into remission with two doses of injection rituximab, 1 g each, at a 2-week interval. 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

Department of Dermatology, Tokyo Metropolitan Tama Medical Center, Fuchu-shi, Tokyo, Japan.

The cutaneous manifestations of subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE), a subset of cutaneous lupus erythematosus, arise most often in sun-exposed areas. We report a case of SCLE with atypical distribution, following treatment with amlodipine.

Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis-Like Lupus Erythematous Presentation Following SARS-CoV-2 Infection.

J Med Cases 2022 Feb 16;13(2):89-93. Epub 2022 Feb 16.

Internal Medicine Department, Centro Hospitalar e Universitario de Coimbra EPE, Coimbra 3004-561, Portugal.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects multiple organs. Infectious agents have been implicated in the pathogenesis of SLE. The emergent severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) induces a pro-inflammatory cytokine storm and has been linked to autoimmune phenomena, which can lead to the onset of autoimmune diseases.

J Autoimmun 2022 04 9;128:102811. Epub 2022 Mar 9.

Department of Dermatology, The Second Xiangya Hospital of Central South University; Hunan Key Laboratory of Medical Epigenomics, Changsha, Hunan, 410011, China; Institute of Dermatology, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Nanjing, Jiangsu, 210042, China; Key Laboratory of Basic and Translational Research on Immune-Mediated Skin Diseases, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Nanjing, China; Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Molecular Biology for Skin Diseases and STIs, Nanjing, China. Electronic address:

Background: Although the contribution of aberrant CD4 T cell signaling to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is well established, its role in cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) skin is largely unknown. Because the rate of systemic manifestations varies in each subtype, resident memory CD4 T cells in lesions that are responsible for only skin-associated tissue responses may vary in each subtype. However, the role of CD4 tissue-resident memory T (CD4 Trm) cells in each CLE subtype remains unclear. Read More

Case Report: Rowell Syndrome-Like Flare of Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Following COVID-19 Infection.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2022 14;9:815743. Epub 2022 Feb 14.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Medical University-Sofia, Sofia, Bulgaria.

The current COVID-19 pandemic caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has had an important impact on dermatology practice, posing diagnostic and therapeutic challenges especially in patients with inflammatory and autoimmune skin disorders. Disease-specific and nonspecific cutaneous manifestations have been increasingly reported in the spectrum of COVID-19 but the influence of the infection on pre-existing dermatologic diseases has not been clearly defined. There has been a debate in the literature as to whether patients suffering from autoimmune dermatoses, including cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE), are at increased risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection, as well as if they experience worsening of their lupus erythematosus (LE)-related clinical symptoms.

Edward K L Chan

Clin Rev Allergy Immunol 2022 Jan 18. Epub 2022 Jan 18.

Department of Oral Biology, University of Florida, 1395 Center Drive, Gainesville, FL, 32610-0424, USA.

This review highlights the 30 plus years research progress since the discovery of autoantibody to Ro52/TRIM21 in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and Sjögren's syndrome (SjS). After the initial expression cloning of the Ro52 cDNA, it has taken many years to the current understanding in the interesting biological function of Ro52 as an E3 ubiquitin ligase and its role in innate immune clearance of intracellular IgG-bound complex. Early observations show that anti-Ro52, mostly associated with anti-SS-A/Ro60 and/or anti-SS-B/La, is commonly found in SLE (40-70%), SjS (70-90%), neonatal lupus erythematosus (NLE, 75-90%), and subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (50-60%).

B Cell Signatures Distinguish Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Subtypes and the Presence of Systemic Disease Activity.

Front Immunol 2021 19;12:775353. Epub 2021 Nov 19.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, United States.

Cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by a diverse cadre of clinical presentations. CLE commonly occurs in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and CLE can also develop in the absence of systemic disease. Although CLE is a complex and heterogeneous disease, several studies have identified common signaling pathways, including those of type I interferons (IFNs), that play a key role in driving cutaneous inflammation across all CLE subsets.
