Clinical and laboratory prognosticators of atrophic papulosis (Degos disease): a systematic review.

Orphanet J Rare Dis 2021 May 6;16(1):203. Epub 2021 May 6.

Department of Dermatology, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Background: Degos disease is a rare vascular disorder with a cutaneous-limited form, benign atrophic papulosis (BAP), and a systemic variant, malignant atrophic papulosis (MAP). Despite the poor prognosis of MAP, no study has established features associated with systemic disease.

Objectives: The aims of this systematic review were to: (1) summarize clinical features and treatments implemented for patients with MAP and BAP (2) identify clinical and laboratory factors associated with the development of MAP, compared to BAP. Read More

Clinical Manifestations and Treatment Outcomes in Degos Disease: A Systematic Review.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2021 Apr 29. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, Canada.

Degos disease (atrophic papulosis) is a rare vasculopathy with cutaneous and systemic manifestations. Although potentially fatal, the characteristics of and treatments for Degos disease variants are not adequately described. We conducted a systematic review to summarize cutaneous and systemic presentations, treatments, and outcomes of malignant (MAP) and benign (BAP) variants of Degos disease. Read More

He required two surgical interventions during his initial hospitalization and was started on eculizumab. Despite these therapies, the patient developed recurrent bowel perforations and ultimately died. Read More

Degos-like lesions as a cutaneous manifestation of cytomegalovirus infection: A rare and serious complication in a patient with drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome.

J Dermatol 2021 Apr 11;48(4):533-536. Epub 2020 Dec 11.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Cytomegalovirus causes a myriad of clinical features, potentially affecting any organ system, significantly increasing morbidity and even mortality. Vascular endothelial cell infection by cytomegalovirus has been implicated in the development of vasculopathy, possibly accounting for the clinical association between cytomegalovirus and vascular thrombosis. In contrast with visceral organ involvement, the cutaneous manifestations of cytomegalovirus are variable and rarely described. Read More

Enhanced cutaneous Rock2 expression as a marker of Rho Kinase pathway activation in autoimmune disease and Kohlemeier-Degos disease.

Ann Diagn Pathol 2020 Feb 23;44:151414. Epub 2019 Oct 23.

Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, United States of America.

The small guanosine triphosphatase Rho and its target Rho kinase are involved in a heterogeneous spectrum of cellular activities, many of which are integral to cytoskeletal organization. Furthermore, the Rho kinases result in NF kappa beta activation and hence the induction of various pro-inflammatory cytokines including TNF-alpha, IL-1B and IL-6. ROCK2 is a downstream protein, whose expression is indicative of Rho Kinase activation. Read More

Pediatrics 2018 04;141(Suppl 5):S481-S484

Departments of Pediatrics and

Malignant atrophic papulosis (MAP), also known as Degos disease, is an extremely rare disease that is characterized by its unique skin presentation (namely, central, porcelain-white atrophic lesions with a telangiectatic rim). MAP has the following 2 variants: cutaneous MAP is manifested in the skin alone, whereas systemic MAP affects the gastrointestinal tract, central nervous system, lungs, and other internal organs. Some patients who presented with only cutaneous symptoms at first may develop systemic symptoms several years later. Read More

Malignant atrophic papulosis with motor aphasia and intestinal perforation: A case report and review of published works.

J Dermatol 2018 Jun 8;45(6):723-726. Epub 2018 Mar 8.

Department of Critical Care Medicine, Chinese People's Liberation Army General Hospital, Beijing, China.

Malignant atrophic papulosis (MAP) is a rare type of obliterating vasculopathy that can present as pure cutaneous lesions or a systemic entity affecting multiple organs. Systemic disease, such as gastrointestinal or central nervous system involvement, may predispose the patients to poorer or even fatal outcomes. We present a 30-year-old female patient with systemic manifestation of MAP 10 days after delivery of a full-term pregnancy who subsequently developed motor aphasia and intestinal perforation.
