Clearance of molluscum contagiosum virus infection in patients with atopic eczema treated with dupilumab.

Br J Dermatol 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

St. John's Institute of Dermatology, Guy's and St, Thomas NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

Molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV) infection in the setting of atopic dermatitis (AD), also known as eczema molluscatum, can represent a significant treatment challenge to the dermatologist. We report four patients with severe AD and disseminated MCV infection who experienced clearance of their MCV infection following treatment with dupilumab, a fully human monoclonal antibody against interleukin(IL)-4 receptor alpha licenced for the treatment of moderate to severe AD.

Giant molluscum contagiosum unmasked probably during an immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome.

Indian J Sex Transm Dis AIDS 2018 Jul-Dec;39(2):139-140

Department of Dermatology, Dr. D Y Patil Medical College and Hospital, Pune, Maharashtra, India.

Restoration of specific immune responses by combined antiretroviral therapy (cART) in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) may paradoxically cause an inflammatory reaction known as immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS). We report the emergence of giant nodules of molluscum contagiosum (MC) on the face and thighs 2 months after initiation of cART in a 45-year-old male patient with acquired immune deficiency syndrome. To the best of our knowledge, our report describes the first case of MC probably unmasked during IRIS from India. Read More

Department of Surgery, AIIMS, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India.

Molluscum contagiosum is a very common skin and mucosal disease of viral origin, caused by molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV) 0 of poxvirus family. With the eradication of smallpox, MCV is the only member of the poxvirus family that causes substantial disease in humans. Although frequently reported, its unusual clinical presentation makes its diagnosis a challenging task. Read More

New Insights into the Evolutionary and Genomic Landscape of Molluscum Contagiosum Virus (MCV) based on Nine MCV1 and Six MCV2 Complete Genome Sequences.

Viruses 2018 10 26;10(11). Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Institute of Microbiology and Immunology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ljubljana, Zaloška 4, SI-1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV) is the sole member of the genus and the causative agent of molluscum contagiosum (MC), a common skin disease. Although it is an important and frequent human pathogen, its genetic landscape and evolutionary history remain largely unknown. In this study, ten novel complete MCV genome sequences of the two most common MCV genotypes were determined (five MCV1 and five MCV2 sequences) and analyzed together with all MCV complete genomes previously deposited in freely accessible sequence repositories (four MCV1 and a single MCV2).

Molluscum contagiosum virus infection can trigger atopic dermatitis disease onset or flare.

Cutis 2018 Sep;102(3):191-194

Departments of Dermatology and Pediatrics, Mt Sinai St. Luke's of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, New York, USA.

Predisposition to cutaneous viral infections is known to be a minor criterion of Hanifin and Rajka's diagnostic standard of atopic dermatitis (AD); however, the causal relationship between molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV) infection and AD onset or aggravation has not been widely explored. The objective of this study was to identify pediatric patients with AD onset or flare triggered by MCV infection as well as to characterize the setting under which MCV may trigger AD onset or flares in children. Fifty children with prior or current MCV infection presenting sequentially to an outpatient pediatric dermatology practice over a 1-month period were evaluated. Read More

A retrospective study of the pattern of sexually transmitted infections from a tertiary care hospital of Rajasthan.

Indian J Sex Transm Dis AIDS 2017 Jul-Dec;38(2):147-151

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology, Government Medical College, Kota, Rajasthan, India.

Background: Knowledge about the current patterns of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is essential as they pose a major health problem worldwide and even more so in the developing countries like ours. Owing to the lack of advanced laboratory facilities at most of the centers, the cases are evaluated and managed as per the syndromic approach proposed by the National AIDS Control Organization.

Aims: We aim to study the patterns of STIs seen over the past 4 years based on the syndromic approach. Read More

Center for Reproduction, 181st Hospital of Chinese People's Liberation Army, Guilin, 541001, China.

Podophyllotoxin is used as medical cream which is widely applied to genital warts and molluscum contagiosum. Although previous study showed that podophyllotoxin had minimal toxicity, it was forbidden to use during pregnancy since it might be toxic to the embryos. In present study we used mouse as the model and tried to examine whether podophyllotoxin exposure was toxic to oocyte maturation, which further affected embryo development. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Lady Hardinge Medical College, Delhi, India.

Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is most frequently a self-limiting benign viral skin disease. Transmitted by direct skin contact, it is characterized by flesh-colored, dome-shaped, umbilicated lesions. Diagnosis of MC is often done clinically, but when needed, biopsy can be performed, in which characteristic Henderson-Patterson bodies, representing intracytoplasmic assemblies of the virus, are pathognomonic.
