Berardinelli-Seip Syndrome and Essential Thrombocytosis: An Unusual Association.

Oman Med J 2020 May 30;35(3):e135. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

Department of Internal Medicine, Endocrine Division, King Hussein Medical Centre, Amman, Jordan.

Congenital generalized lipodystrophy (Berardinelli-Seip syndrome) is an autosomal recessive condition, presenting during infancy with generalized loss of fat. We report a 30-year-old female patient with diabetes who has acromegaloid features, prominent umbilicus, prominent muscles, prominent subcutaneous veins, and gross hepatomegaly. Near-total loss of subcutaneous fat was confirmed by whole-body magnetic resonance imaging and laboratory data revealed significant hypertriglyceridemia, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, and heavy proteinuria with stage IIIa chronic kidney disease.

The Promise of JAK Inhibitors for Treatment of Sarcoidosis and Other Inflammatory Disorders with Macrophage Activation: A Review of the Literature.

Yale J Biol Med 2020 03 27;93(1):187-195. Epub 2020 Mar 27.

Department of Dermatology, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT.

Certain inflammatory disorders are characterized by macrophage activation and accumulation in tissue; sometimes leading to the formation of granulomas, as in sarcoidosis. These disorders are often difficult to treat and more effective, molecularly targeted therapies are needed. Recent work has shown that overproduction of inflammatory cytokines, such as interferon gamma (IFN-γ) leading to constitutive activation of the JAK-STAT pathway may be a conserved feature of these disorders.

Indian Dermatol Online J 2020 Jan-Feb;11(1):83-86. Epub 2019 Sep 26.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Centro Hospitalar e Universitário de São João EPE, Porto, Portugal.

Necrobiotic xanthogranuloma (NXG) is a rare form of inflammatory granulomatous disease of the skin characterized by the presence of pruritic to painful lesions, generally located in the periorbital area, although trunk and proximal extremities may also be involved. We report a case of a 69-year-old male patient with extensive involvement of the trunk, upper and lower extremities, and an associated gamma monoclonal gammopathy. The skin biopsy was consistent with the diagnosis of NXG. Read More

Necrobiosis Lipoidica Mimicking Cutaneous Sarcoidosis Finally Treated With an Intralesional Injection of Corticosteroid: A Case Report

J Drugs Dermatol 2020 Jan;19(1):92-94

BACKGROUND: Necrobiosis lipoidica (NL) and sarcoidosis are granulomatous disorders with an unknown pathogenesis. They may coexist in the same patient, which suggests a possible overlap between these diseases among shared granulomatous inflammatory pathways. Case Presentation: This study presents the case of a non-diabetic 52-year-old woman who presented with red-yellowish border plaques on the face and upper extremities previously diagnosed as sarcoidosis.

Dermatology Unit, Department of Medicine, Kaduna State University/Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital, Kaduna, Nigeria.

Necrobiosis lipoidica (NL), one of a group of "necrobiotic" granulomatous cutaneous disorders, is characterized histologically by layers of poorly defined, horizontally oriented, altered "necrobiotic" collagen surrounded by, and alternating with, layers of chronic inflammatory cells, histiocytes, and giant cells throughout the full thickness of the dermis. It is a rare disease associated mostly with diabetes mellitus in whom it may affect 0.3%-1. Read More

Necrobiosis lipoidica is a chronic granulomatous disease historically associated with diabetes. Necrobiosis lipoidica commonly presents with erythematous papules or plaques on the anterior lower extremities, which can be ulcerated in up to 30% of patients. The pathophysiology of necrobiosis lipoidica is unknown but proposed to be predominantly linked to microangiopathy. Read More

Department of Dermatology, University of California, Davis, Sacramento, CA Department of Biological Sciences, Davis, CA California State University, Sacramento, CA.

Necrobiosis lipoidica is a chronic granulomatous disease of unknown etiopathogenesis, which is often difficult to treat. While data from randomized controlled trials for the treatment of necrobiosis lipoidica is lacking, several treatments of varying efficacy for necrobiosis lipoidica have been reported in the scientific literature. We present a case of a 29-year-old female with uncontrolled diabetes and treatment-resistant necrobiosis lipoidica which was responsive to ustekinumab. Read More

Granulomatous dermatoses comprise a wide range of etiologically and clinically distinct skin diseases that share a common histology characterized by the accumulation of histiocytes include macrophages. While the pathogenesis of these disorders is not fully understood, the underlying mechanism is thought to involve a reaction pattern caused by an immunogenic stimulus. Antigen-presenting cells and the effect of various cytokines play a key role. Read More

Importance: Necrobiosis lipoidica (NL) is a rare granulomatous condition. Current knowledge of its key features is based on a limited number of studies and case reports, leading to wide variability in the characterization of its defining features, with limited comparison of patients with or without diabetes.

A series of clinical research projects conducted over the past 40 years, all of which were informed by clinical observation or discussions with people with diabetes and staff colleagues are described in this review. A study of necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum confirmed that this rare skin complication occurs predominantly in young women with Type 1 diabetes and other microvascular complications. Biopsies of necrobiotic lesions showed destruction of superficial nerve fibres by inflammatory tissue, which likely causes the sensory loss in lesions that is pathognomonic of the condition.

Necrobiosis lipoidica (NL) is a rare chronic granulomatous inflammatory skin disease characterized by brownish-red papules and yellowish plaques with atrophic centers, which usually affect the legs, bilaterally. The average age of onset is 30-40 years, and there are very few reported cases of necrobiosis lipoidica in children. A nondiabetic girl aged 14 years presented to our clinic with a history of an asymptomatic, 7 × 5-cm single red plaque over her back in the interscapular area, which had started 5 years ago.

Inflammatory granulomatous dermatitides include cutaneous sarcoidosis, necrobiosis lipoidica, granuloma annulare, and reactive granulomatous dermatitis. The etiopathogenesis of these disorders is not well understood; but the T helper 1 response mediated by interferon-gamma, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and interleukin (IL) 1, 2, and 6 and the T helper 17 response mediated by IL-17 play a role. These inflammatory granulomatous disorders often have cutaneous manifestations in addition to extracutaneous manifestations or associations with systemic diseases. Read More

Necrobiosis lipoidica associated with sarcoidosis.

J Cutan Pathol 2018 Dec 9;45(12):944-948. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Department of Dermatology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia.

We report the case of a 40-year-old African-American female with biopsy-proven pulmonary sarcoidosis who developed atrophic plaques on her shins, trunk, and scalp that were clinically and histologically consistent with necrobiosis lipoidica (NL). The lesions appeared 3 years after her diagnosis of sarcoidosis, and progressed despite chronic prednisone. Sarcoidosis and NL are granulomatous skin disorders reported to coexist in the same patient only 10 times in the literature. Read More

Although diagnosis of cutaneous granulomatous disorders (CGDs) is usually suspected based on morphologic findings, localization, and anamnestic data, clinical differentiation from each other and from similar dermatoses may be challenging. Recently, dermatoscopy has been demonstrated to be a useful tool for assisting the recognition of several CGDs. This article provides a current overview of the dermatoscopic features of the main noninfectious and infectious CGDs, including sarcoidosis, necrobiosis lipoidica, granuloma annulare, rheumatoid nodules, and leishmaniasis.
