Many areas of life including patterns of dermatological diseases that patient attend to the hospital were tremendously affected by implementing stay-at-home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic. We aimed to identify the dermatologic interest of the public during the COVID-19 pandemic by using Google Trends. The terms "acne", "hair loss", "eczema", "genital warts", "molluscum contagiosum", "botox", "skin cancer", "sunscreen" were analyzed on first April, first May, first June 2020, and the corresponding period of the previous year in Turkey and Italy by using Google Trends.

J Gen Virol 2020 Jun 8. Epub 2020 Jun 8.

Division of Infection and Immunity, Cardiff University School of Medicine, Cardiff CF14 4XW, UK.

Molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV) is a common cause of benign skin lesions in young children and currently the only endemic human poxvirus. Following the infection of primary keratinocytes in the epidermis, MCV induces the proliferation of infected cells and this results in the production of wart-like growths. Full productive infection is observed only after the infected cells differentiate. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

A man in his 20s with a history of unprotected sex with a commercial sex worker three months before presented with a solitary slowly-growing, well-defined, non-tender, oval, verrucous lesion on the mucosal aspect of his prepuce. Dermoscopy revealed a polylobular, pinkish-white, amorphous structure in the centre with a surrounding crown of vessels that did not cross the centre of the lobules, and histopathology showed keratinocytes containing intracytoplasmic faintly granular eosinophilic inclusions and peripherally-pushed nuclei. A diagnosis of agminated genital molluscum contagiosum was reached on the basis of the above findings. Read More

Molluscum contagiosum in pediatric patients: to treat or not to treat? Could a personalized imiquimod regimen be the answer to the dilemma?

J Dermatolog Treat 2020 Jun 22:1-6. Epub 2020 Jun 22.

Department of Dermatology, The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust, Harlow, UK.

Although molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV) infection is a common disease widespread among children and young adults, there is no shared opinion on treatment that can be divided into physical, chemical, medical (immunomodulating or anti-viral). According to some authors, MCV is best left to clear by itself. To assess the clearance of MCV lesions in a sample of pediatric patients. Read More

Molluscum contagiosum infection with features of primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma.

Dermatol Online J 2019 Nov 15;25(11). Epub 2019 Nov 15.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA.

CD30+ T cell pseudolymphomas (CD30+ PSL) are a group of benign inflammatory cutaneous disorders that can develop in settings of viral infections or drug reactions. Owing to their histological similarities to malignant lymphomas, these benign infiltrates are occasionally misdiagnosed as malignant, causing significant concerns for patients and physicians. Herein, we report a patient with CD30+ PSL associated with molluscum contagiosum whose initial biopsy revealed atypical large CD30-expressing cells, leading to a misdiagnosis of primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma and referral to our cutaneous lymphoma clinic.

Pemphigus-like eruption as a complication of molluscum contagiosum treatment with imiquimod in a 5-year-old girl.

Pediatr Dermatol 2020 Mar 6;37(2):379-380. Epub 2020 Feb 6.

Division of Dermatology, Boston Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Pemphigus and pemphigus-like reactions can be triggered by a variety of medications including topical therapies, such as imiquimod. While the association between imiquimod and pemphigus-like reactions has been reported in adults, this is the first report of a generalized reaction beyond the site of imiquimod application in a child. The mechanism by which this occurs may be through a unique pathway, separate from the classic antibody-mediated pathway. Read More

Diversity of XMEN Disease: Description of 2 Novel Variants and Analysis of the Lymphocyte Phenotype.

J Clin Immunol 2020 Feb 21;40(2):299-309. Epub 2019 Dec 21.

Department of Laboratory Immunology, PathWest QEII Medical Centre, Perth, WA, Australia.

Variants in MAGT1 have been identified as the cause of an immune deficiency termed X-linked immunodeficiency with magnesium defect, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection and neoplasia (XMEN) disease. Here, we describe 2 cases of XMEN disease due to novel mutations in MAGT1, one of whom presented with classical features of XMEN disease and another who presented with a novel phenotype including probable CNS vasculitis, HHV-8 negative multicentric Castelman disease and severe molluscum contagiosum, thus highlighting the clinical diversity that may be seen in this condition. Peripheral blood immunophenotyping of these 2 patients, together with an additional 4 XMEN patients, revealed reduced NKG2D expression, impaired CD28 expression on CD8 T cells, CD4 T cell lymphopenia, an inverted CD4:CD8 ratio and decreased memory B cells.

A comparative study of topical cantharidin and intralesional PPD to treat molluscum contagiosum.

J Dermatolog Treat 2019 Aug 29:1-5. Epub 2019 Aug 29.

Dermatology, Venereology and Andrology and Departments, Faculty of Medicine, Zagazig University , Zagazig , Egypt.

The immune system plays an important part in the clearance of molluscum contagiosum (MC) and, therefore, there has lately been a trend in using immunotherapy in MC therapy. Tuberculin-purified protein derivatives (PPDs) and topical cantharidin have not earlier been compared with their effectiveness in therapy The aim of this research was to determine the effectiveness and security of intralesional immunotherapy in the therapy of MC with tuberculin PPD versus topical cantharidin Twenty patients with various MC lesions received topical cantharidin as control (group A) and 20 MC patients received intralesional tuberculin PPD following prior intradermal immunity tests (group B‏). Complete clearance of lesions was detected in 90. Read More

[Young male patient with unusual space-occupying lesion of the lower eyelid].

Ophthalmologe 2020 Jan;117(1):73-77

Zentrum für Augenheilkunde, Universität zu Köln, Medizinische Fakultät und Uniklinik Köln, Kerpener Str. 62, 50924, Köln, Deutschland.

Background: A space-occupying lesion of the eyelid in young adults is often a sign of an inflammation, a trauma or a benign neoplasm. The aim of this case report is to demonstrate a rare basal cell carcinoma, which presumably already arose in adolescence without further high-risk factors.

Methods: A 28-year-old male patient presented for a second opinion on a painless swelling of the right lower eyelid. Read More

An Exclusively Skewed Distribution of Pediatric Immune Reconstitution Inflammatory Syndrome Toward the Female Sex Is Associated With Advanced Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.

Front Pediatr 2019 10;7:293. Epub 2019 Jul 10.

Molecular Identification and Diagnosis Unit, Laboratory of Biotechnology, Center for Biosciences and Biotechnology, Universidade Estadual do Norte Fluminense Darcy Ribeiro, Campos dos Goytacazes, Brazil.

In human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) patients with very low CD4 cell counts, there is a temporal relationship between administration of antiretroviral therapy (ART) and an increased inflammatory response state known as the immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS). The predominant clinical presentation of IRIS is an infectious disease that can be life-threatening. IRIS-related infectious events are distributed similarly between adult males and females, albeit a few studies have shown a skewing toward the male sex in pediatric IRIS. Read More
