Miliaria crystallina secondary to herbal remedies-induced toxic epidermal necrolysis: A case report.

Dermatol Ther 2019 07 28;32(4):e12995. Epub 2019 Jun 28.

Department of Dermatology, Shanghai Skin Disease Hospital, Shanghai, China.

Miliaria crystallina is a skin disorder that often erupts in the process of febrile diseases or under hot and humid climatic conditions. Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) is a rare, acute, and life-threatening mucocutaneous disease with a mortality rate of 25-35%. There has been no inevitable connection between the two diseases among previously reported cases, but we observed a case of secondary miliaria crystallina a woman with herbal remedies-induced TEN during the therapeutic process.

Integrated Transcriptomic and Proteomic Analysis of Human Eccrine Sweat Glands Identifies Missing and Novel Proteins.

Mol Cell Proteomics 2019 07 12;18(7):1382-1395. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

From the ‡McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland;; §Department of Biological Chemistry, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland;; Department of Oncology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland;; ‡‡Department of Pathology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland;. Electronic address:

The eccrine sweat gland is an exocrine gland that is involved in the secretion of sweat for control of temperature. Malfunction of the sweat glands can result in disorders such as miliaria, hyperhidrosis and bromhidrosis. Understanding the transcriptome and proteome of sweat glands is important for understanding their physiology and role in diseases. Read More

Energy crops affecting farmland birds in Central Europe: insights from a miscanthus-dominated landscape.

Biologia (Bratisl) 2019 5;74(1):35-44. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Institute of Zoology, Poznań University of Life Sciences, Wojska Polskiego 71C, 60-625 Poznań, Poland.

The expansion of energy crops such as miscanthus has changed the habitat of European farmland birds. However, most studies on the subject are based in Western Europe. We surveyed the avian community in a sample bioenergy landscape in Poland to investigate the pattern of use of the crop by birds in Central Europe. Read More

Gradient-based 3D skin roughness rendering from an in-vivo skin image for dynamic haptic palpation.

Skin Res Technol 2019 May 3;25(3):305-317. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Department of Information & Telecommunication Engineering, Incheon National University, Incheon, Korea.

Background/purpose: Many studies have revealed the importance of palpation for dermatologists; however, palpation is not always possible due to the risk of secondary infections or the risk of damaging the affected area. Thus, haptic rendering for indirect palpation using in-vivo skin images, which will enable to examine a real three-dimensional (3D) skin sample by virtual touch without directly palpating the infected skin area, could be a useful technology in dermatology.

Methods: We propose a new method of accurate 3D skin surface reconstruction using simple gradients from a single skin image for accurate 3D roughness rendering with a haptic device. Read More

Fox-Fordyce disease: report of two cases with perifollicular xanthomatosis on histological image.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Jul-Aug;93(4):562-565

Clínica Dermatológica Valdés - León, Guanajuato, Mexico.

Fox-Fordyce disease is a relatively infrequent pathology of the apocrine glands that affects almost exclusively young women. The disease is characterized by the presence of pruritic follicular papules mainly in the armpits that respond poorly to treatment and severely affect the patient's quality of life. We report two cases with clinical diagnosis and histopathological confirmation, presenting perifollicular xanthomatosis on histological examination, recently described as a distinctive, consistent, and specific feature of this disease.

Neutrophilic superficial eccrine ductitis: Proposal of a new disease concept.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Mar 5;35(2):e105-e109. Epub 2018 Jan 5.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Internal Related, Graduate School of Medicine, Kobe University, Kobe, Japan.

A 3-year-old Japanese boy presented with a 3-month history of itchy erythematous papules on his trunk and forearms, the histologic findings of which were characterized by predominantly neutrophilic inflammation within and around the eccrine sweat ducts and obliteration and disruption of the superficial eccrine sweat ducts. Although the skin disorder had some clinical and histopathologic similarity to miliaria and neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis, it was ultimately conformed to be neither disorder. Based on this and a case report in the Japanese literature of a 1-year-old boy with erythematous eruptions whose clinical and histopathologic findings were similar to those in our case, we propose the skin disorder in our case, referred to as "neutrophilic superficial eccrine ductitis," as a unique entity.
