    Expression of epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) and CFTR in the human epidermis and epidermal appendages.
    Histochem Cell Biol 2017 Jun 27;147(6):733-748. Epub 2017 Jan 27.
    Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.
    A major function of the skin is the regulation of body temperature by sweat secretions. Sweat glands secrete water and salt, especially NaCl. Excreted water evaporates, cooling the skin surface, and Na(+) ions are reabsorbed by the epithelial sodium channels (ENaC). Read More

    Inflammatory and glandular skin disease in pregnancy.
    Clin Dermatol 2016 May-Jun;34(3):335-43. Epub 2016 Feb 11.
    Department of Dermatology, Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island; Department of Dermatology, Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, Rhode Island.
    A switch from cell-mediated to humoral immunity (helper T 1 [Th1] to helper T 2 [Th2] shift) during gestation plays a key role in placental immune tolerance. As a result, skin diseases that are Th2 mediated often worsen, whereas skin diseases that are Th1 mediated often improve during gestation. Also, due to fluctuations in glandular activity, skin diseases involving sebaceous and eccrine glands may flare, whereas those involving apocrine glands may improve during pregnancy. Read More

    Benign skin disease with pustules in the newborn.
    An Bras Dermatol 2016 Apr;91(2):124-34
    Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil.
    The neonatal period comprises the first four weeks of life. It is a period of adaptation where the skin often presents several changes: transient lesions, resulting from a physiological response, others as a consequence of transient diseases and some as markers of severe disorders. The presence of pustules in the skin of the newborn is always a reason for the family and for the assisting doctor to be worried, since the newborn is especially vulnerable to bacterial, viral or fungal infection.

    The effects of the El Niño Southern Oscillation on skin and skin-related diseases: a message from the International Society of Dermatology Climate Change Task Force.
    Int J Dermatol 2015 Dec 15;54(12):1343-51. Epub 2015 Oct 15.
    Division of Clinical Dermatology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.
    The El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is a complex climate phenomenon occurring in the Pacific Ocean at intervals of 2-7 years. The term refers to fluctuations in ocean temperatures in the tropical eastern Pacific Ocean (El Niño [the warm phase of ENSO] and La Niña [the cool phase of ENSO]) and in atmospheric pressure across the Pacific basin (Southern Oscillation). This weather pattern is attributed with causing climate change in certain parts of the world and is associated with disease outbreaks. Read More

    The Infectious and Noninfectious Dermatological Consequences of Flooding: A Field Manual for the Responding Provider.
    Am J Clin Dermatol 2015 Oct;16(5):399-424
    Dermatology Division, Children's National Medical Center, Washington, DC, USA.
    Meteorological data show that disastrous floods are increasingly frequent and more severe in recent years, perhaps due to climatic changes such as global warming. During and after a flood disaster, traumatic injuries, communicable diseases, chemical exposures, malnutrition, decreased access to care, and even mental health disorders dramatically increase, and many of these have dermatological manifestations. Numerous case reports document typical and atypical cutaneous infections, percutaneous trauma, immersion injuries, noninfectious contact exposures, exposure to wildlife, and exacerbation of underlying skin diseases after such disasters as the 2004 Asian tsunami, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the 2010 Pakistan floods.

    Neonatal pustular dermatosis: an overview.
    Indian J Dermatol 2015 Mar-Apr;60(2):211
    Department of Skin and VD, PGIMS, Rohtak, Haryana, India.
    Neonatal pustular eruption is a group of disorders characterized by various forms of pustulosis seen in first 4 weeks of life. Its presentation is often similar with some subtle differences, which can be further established by few simple laboratory aids, to arrive at a definite diagnosis. Given their ubiquitous presentation, it is sometimes difficult to differentiate among self-limiting, noninfectious, pustular dermatosis such as erythema toxicum neonatorum, transient neonatal pustular melanosis, miliaria pustulosa, etc. Read More
