A case of cutaneous extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma clinically and histopathologically mimicking interface dermatitis.

Australas J Dermatol 2020 Jun 2. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Department of Dermatology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTL) is a rare but aggressive cancer characterised by angiocentric and angiodestructive infiltration by NK-cells, or cytotoxic T-cell types. Histopathologically, ENKTL shows a multinodular or diffuse infiltration localised to vascular structures, resulting in angiodestruction and necrosis. We present a patient with an initially suspected diagnosis of benign interface dermatitis with a differential diagnosis of mycosis fungoides that was later found to be an aggressive extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma of a nasal type and with a dismal prognosis.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2020 May 26. Epub 2020 May 26.

Center for Research & Development, Kaohsiung Municipal Siaogang Hospital, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

Less is known about gastrointestinal (GI) involvement of primary skin diseases due to the difference in embryology, histology, microbiology and physiology between integument and alimentary tract. Esophagus, following the oropharyngeal mucosa, is the most common GI segment affected by primary skin diseases, especially by eosinophilic esophagitis, lichen planus, and autoimmune bullous dermatoses like pemphigus vulgaris, mucosal membrane pemphigoid and epidermolysis bullosa acquisita. Eosinophilic esophagitis is an emerging chronic atopic disease with esophageal dysfunction as the typical presentation, and esophageal narrowing, rings and stricture as late complications. Read More

Genome-wide transcriptome analysis of the STAT6-regulated genes in advanced-stage cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.

Blood 2020 May 21. Epub 2020 May 21.

Unversity of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States.

The signal transducer and activator of transcription 6 (STAT-6) is a critical up-stream mediator of IL-13 and IL-4 signaling and is constitutively activated in malignant lymphocytes from Sezary syndrome (SS) and mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common subtypes of cutaneous T-cell lymphomas. By combining genome-wide expression profiling with pharmacological STAT-6 inhibition, we have identified the genes regulated by STAT-6 in MF/SS tumors. We found that STAT-6 regulates several common pathways in MF/SS malignant lymphocytes that are associated with control of cell cycle progression and genomic stability as well as production of Th2 cytokines.

Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Vienna, Währinger Gürtel 18-20, Vienna, 1090, Austria.

Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) comprise a heterogeneous group of extranodal non-Hodgkin lymphomas involving primarily the skin and mycosis fungoides is its most frequent entity. Whereas most patients show an indolent course in early disease (clinical stages IA to IIA), some patients progress to advanced disease (stage IIB or higher), and the 5-year survival rate is unfavorable: only 47% (stage IIB) to 18% (stage IVB). Except for allogeneic stem cell transplantation, there is currently no cure for CTCL and thus treatment approaches are palliative, focusing on patients' health-related quality of life. Read More

Soft tissue coverage of a total gluteal defect with a combination of perforator-based flaps: A case report.

Microsurgery 2020 May 15. Epub 2020 May 15.

Depatment of Hand and Plastic Surgery, Cantonal Hospital of Lucerne, Lucerne, Switzerland.

Soft tissue defects in the buttock area are often related to decubitus ulcers, which are usually small to medium-large size and can be regularly treated with local flaps. However, when the defects have bigger size, such as those involving the whole gluteal region, the coverage can become more challenging, since this specific area needs both a good resistance to pressure and an acceptable functional result. The most common solution for similar cases is the use of multiple local flaps, or, in extreme situations, a free flap. Read More

MicroRNA-93 Targets p21 and Promotes Proliferation in Mycosis Fungoides T Cells.

Dermatology 2020 Apr 24:1-6. Epub 2020 Apr 24.

Department of Dermatology, Aarhus University Hospital, Skejby, Aarhus, Denmark.

Background: Mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL), is a lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by proliferation of malignant T cells in a chronic inflammatory environment in the skin. The nature of MF is still not fully understood, but aberrant microRNA (miR) expression and function seem to play an important role in the pathogenesis and disease progression and have been proposed as a putative disease marker. Recent studies have reported aberrant expression of miR-93 in situin MF lesions and linked dysregulated miR-93 expression to advanced stages of MF. Read More

: Advanced mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sézary syndrome (SS) are forms of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma characterized by a poor prognosis. Treatments are associated with high rates of relapse, and thus there exists an unmet medical need for new, improved therapies. Mogamulizumab is a novel defucosylated monoclonal antibody targeting C-C chemokine receptor 4 that eradicates malignant cells via antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC). Read More

Flow cytometric evaluation of peripheral blood for suspected Sézary syndrome or mycosis fungoides: International guidelines for assay characteristics.

Cytometry B Clin Cytom 2020 Apr 22. Epub 2020 Apr 22.

Department of Laboratory Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut, USA.

A peripheral blood flow cytometric assay for Sézary syndrome (SS) or circulating mycosis fungoides (MF) cells must be able to reliably identify, characterize, and enumerate T-cells with an immunophenotype that differs from non-neoplastic T-cells. Although it is also important to distinguish SS and MF from other subtypes of T-cell neoplasm, this usually requires information in addition to the immunophenotype, such as clinical and morphologic features. This article outlines the approach recommended by an international group with experience and expertise in this area. Read More

Validation of an algorithm based on clinical, histopathological and immunohistochemical data for the diagnosis of early-stage mycosis fungoides.

An Bras Dermatol 2020 May - Jun;95(3):326-331. Epub 2020 Mar 20.

Postgraduate Program in Anatomical Pathology, Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil; Department of Pathology, Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil; Instituto Nacional de Infectologia, Fundação Oswaldo Cruz, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.

Background: Diagnosis of mycosis fungoides is challenging due to the non-specificity of clinical and histopathological findings. The literature indicates an average delay of 4-6 years for a conclusive diagnosis. Refinement of the histopathological criteria for the diagnosis of patients in early stages of the disease is considered of interest. Read More
