Extensive eczema herpeticum in a previously well child.

Int J Emerg Med 2022 May 21;15(1):21. Epub 2022 May 21.

Department of Pediatrics, Salmaniya Medical Complex, Manama, Bahrain.

Background: Eczema herpeticum, also known as Kaposi varicelliform eruption, is a potentially life-threatening disseminated cutaneous viral infection. In the majority of cases, this condition develops as a complication in patients with atopic dermatitis. However, it may arise in a wide spectrum of pre-existing skin conditions, including psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, cutaneous T cell lymphoma, pemphigus vulgaris, and others.

Suberoylanilide Hydroxamic Acid (SAHA) Treatment Reveals Crosstalk Among Proteome, Phosphoproteome, and Acetylome in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Cells.

Front Genet 2022 3;13:873840. Epub 2022 May 3.

Department of Oncology, NHC Key Laboratory of Cancer Proteomics, XiangYa Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, China.

Suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA), a famous histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor, has been utilized in clinical treatment for cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Previously, the mechanisms underlying SAHA anti-tumor activity mainly focused on acetylome. However, the characteristics of SAHA in terms of other protein posttranslational modifications (PTMs) and the crosstalk between various modifications are poorly understood. Read More

Incidence, Treatment, and Survival of Patients With T-Cell Lymphoma, T-Cell Large Granular Leukemia, and Concomitant Plasma Cell Dyscrasias.

Front Oncol 2022 29;12:858426. Epub 2022 Apr 29.

Division of Hematology, Department of Internal Medicine, James Comprehensive Cancer Center, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, United States.

T-Cell malignancies are a group of heterogeneous disorders composed of primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs), peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs), and T-cell leukemias, including T-cell large granular lymphocytic leukemia (T-LGLL). Cases of patients with combined T-cell malignancies and plasma cell dyscrasias (PCD) are reported in the literature, but these are mostly limited to case reports or small case series with <10 patients. Here, we described the clinical course of 26 patients and report baseline characteristics and clinical outcomes including overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS), and objective response rates (ORRs) in this unique population.

Healthcare Disparities in the Management of Indolent Mycosis Fungoides.

Cureus 2022 Apr 13;14(4):e24098. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Dermatology, Elias Emergency University Hospital, Bucharest, ROU.

Mycosis fungoides represents the most common cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, clinically manifested with evolving skin lesions, including patches, plaques, tumors, and erythroderma. Early diagnosis remains difficult to establish because it mimics several benign skin conditions, but maintaining a high index of suspicion for the disease is essential in preventing the progression of a potentially fatal disease. We report the case of a 69-year-old female who presented in our dermatology clinic in 2018 with scaly, indurated, itchy erythematous-violaceus patches and plaques, and tumors disseminated throughout the skin evolving for nine years.

Rein Willemze

Presse Med 2022 May 12:104126. Epub 2022 May 12.

Department of Dermatology, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, The Netherlands. Electronic address:

Primary cutaneous lymphomas are a heterogeneous group of cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) and cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (CBCL) that present in the skin with no evidence of extracutaneous disease at the time of diagnosis. In the last decade the 2005 WHO-EORTC consensus classification has served as a golden standard for the diagnosis and classification of these conditions. Recently, an updated version of the WHO-EORTC was published. Read More

New developments in skin-directed treatments of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.

Presse Med 2022 May 10:104125. Epub 2022 May 10.

Division of Dermatology, Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Hospital, Petach Tikva; Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel. Electronic address:

The therapeutic approach for mycosis fungoides, the most common type of primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, is based mainly on the stage of the disease, and skin-directed treatment is recommended by all international guidelines as the first-line treatment in early-stage disease. Skin-directed treatments may be also given in combination with systemic therapies in early-stage mycosis fungoides patients recalcitrant to different types of skin-directed treatments, or in certain patients with high-risk features. Advanced-stage mycosis fungoides is treated mainly with systemic treatments, which may be combined with skin-directed treatments. Read More

Departamento de Docencia e Investigacion, Escuela de Medicina, Universidad Internacional del Ecuador, Quito, Ecuador Servicio de Patologia, Hospital Metropolitano, Quito, Ecuador.

Primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, leg type is a rare entity accounting for 4% of all primary cutaneous lymphomas whose clinical presentation encompasses a range of possibilities. COVID-19 has caused a delay in diagnosis of malignant neoplasms and consequently, this has resulted in poorer prognoses. A 62-year-old woman presented with two smooth-surfaced, mobile, well-circumscribed, oval, skin-colored nodules approximately one-cm in diameter with nonerythematous borders on the lower third of the left leg.

Care structure of patients with mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome in Germany - Care research based on SHI claims data.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2022 05 2;20(5):643-651. Epub 2022 May 2.

Kyowa Kirin GmbH, Düsseldorf.

Background: Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) are rare forms of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of T-cell origin that occur mainly in the skin. The most common form is mycosis fungoides (MF), but Sézary syndrome (SS), a more aggressive form of CTCL, is another relevant subgroup. Due to the rare nature of the disease, population-based studies of the epidemiology and disease burden and insights into care delivery are limited. Read More

Management of relapsed cutaneous T-Cell lymphoma following allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation: Review with representative patient case.

Dermatol Ther 2022 Apr 27:e15538. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Department of Dermatology, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) is a potentially curative treatment option for patients with refractory cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) through replacement of the bone marrow responsible for lymphoma cells and possibly induction of a graft-versus-lymphoma effect. However, allo-HSCT is not always curative; relapse of CTCL occurs in about half of patients post-transplant. Treatment of relapsed CTCL after allo-HSCT is challenging because post-transplant patients are at high risk of graft-versus-host disease, and this condition may be precipitated or exacerbated by standard CTCL therapies.

Aggressive Primary Cutaneous Anaplastic T-Cell Lymphoma Successfully Treated with Autologous Stem Cell Transplant and Brentuximab Vedotin Consolidation: Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Hematol Rep 2022 Mar 23;14(2):61-66. Epub 2022 Mar 23.

Department of Biomedicine and Prevention, University Tor Vergata, 00133 Rome, Italy.

Primary cutaneous CD30+ lymphoproliferative disorders include primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma (pcALCL) and lymphomatoid papulosis. The prognosis of the disease is usually excellent but, in a minority of cases, it presents with extracutaneous involvement and aggressive behavior. The case we present-relapsed after surgical excision, immunosuppressive therapy, and conventional chemotherapy-is the first one treated with Autologous Stem Cell transplant followed by Brentuximab Vedotin consolidation, a scheme already used for high risk Hodgkin Lymphoma.
