Clinical Features and Comorbidities of Patients With Necrobiosis Lipoidica With or Without Diabetes.

JAMA Dermatol 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Dermatology, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.

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.

Objective: To evaluate the epidemiologic characteristics, clinical features, and disease associations of NL in patients with or without type 1 or 2 diabetes. Read More

The 2017 Banting Memorial Lecture The diabetic lower limb - a forty year journey: from clinical observation to clinical science.

Diabet Med 2019 Jan 19. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Gastroenterology, School of Medical Sciences, University of Manchester, Manchester, UK.

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.

Dermatology Department, University of Health Sciences, Şişli Hamidiye Etfal Training and Research Hospital, İstanbul, Turkey.

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.

Advances in Inflammatory Granulomatous Skin Diseases.

Dermatol Clin 2019 Jan;37(1):49-64

Dermatology Administration, Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, 3400 Civic Center Boulevard, 7th Floor, South Tower, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA. Electronic address:

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

Dermatoscopy of Granulomatous Disorders.

Dermatol Clin 2018 Oct 2;36(4):369-375. Epub 2018 Aug 2.

Department of Medical Area, Institute of Dermatology, University of Udine, Udine, Italy.

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.

Atrophic and Annular Scarring Alopecia of the Scalp as a Finding in Underlying Systemic Sarcoidosis.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2017 Dec;25(4):298-299

Dario Didona, MD, Prima Divisione Dermatologica , Istituto Dermopatico dell'Immacolata-IRCCS, Via dei Mont di Creta 104 , 00167 Rome, Italy;

Cutaneous sarcoidosis is not an uncommon disorder, and the skin can be the sole manifestation in about 10% of patients. However, when the involved anatomical area of the cutaneous sarcoidosis is the scalp and it presents as a scarring alopecia, there is an increased risk of a systemic disease (1,2). A 79-year-old Caucasian male patient presented to our Institute with annular and painless plaques of the scalp, with variable diameter, showing a reddish and yellowish color (Figure 1, a). Read More

Systemic therapies for leg ulcers.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2018 Jul;16(7):873-890

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Allergology, University Medical Center Bochum, Bochum, Germany.

Successful management of patients with leg ulcers requires identification of the underlying etiology, with subsequent initiation of causal treatment, if feasible. Supplementary measures of first choice include stage-adjusted wound treatment, usually combined with compression therapy. The significance of systemic drugs has been the subject of controversial debate, depending on the underlying cause of the condition. Read More

Photodynamic therapy of necrobiosis lipoidica using methyl aminolevulinate: A retrospective follow-up study.

Department of Dermatology, Bispebjerg Hospital, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Introduction: Necrobiosis lipoidica (NL) is a rare, treatment-resistant, granulomatous skin disease of unknown origin, frequently seen in patients with diabetes.

Methods: In this retrospective study we evaluated the long-term efficacy of methyl aminolaevulinate-based photodynamic therapy (MAL-PDT), including 80 treatments (70 conventional and 10 daylight PDT), on 65 unselected NL patients treated routinely in our clinic. Superficial curettage, avoiding skin oozing or bleeding, was performed prior to MAL application. Read More

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Oct;40(10):762-766

Department of Dermatology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, FL.

Actinic granuloma (AG) manifests as annular plaques on sun-damaged skin. There remains no universal consensus on the nosology, etiology, or clinicopathologic criteria of AG as a distinct entity. Broadly, AG is characterized by granulomatous inflammation, multinucleated giant cells, elastophagocytosis, and the absence of mucin and necrobiosis. Read More

Cutaneous granulomatosis is a heterogeneous group of diseases, characterized by a skin inflammatory reaction triggered by a wide variety of stimuli, including infections, foreign bodies, malignancy, metabolites, and chemicals. From a pathogenic point of view, they are divided into non-infectious and infectious granulomas. Pathophysiological mechanisms are still poorly understood. Read More

The link between the metabolic syndrome (MetS) and skin diseases is increasingly important, with new associations being discovered. The association between MetS and psoriasis or MetS and hidradenitis suppurativa is well known, although the relationship between MetS and various autoimmune or inflammatory diseases has only recently attracted interest. Some inflammatory skin diseases, such as vitiligo, scleredema, recurrent aphthous stomatitis, Behçet disease, rosacea, necrobiosis lipoidica, granuloma annulare, skin tags, knuckle pads, and eruptive xanthomas, have possible associations with MetS.

Dear Editor, An 83-year-old woman developed yellow-brownish infiltrates, nodules, and tumors mimicking xanthomas, mostly involving the periorbital and chest area within three months (Figure 1). She had no abnormalities in serum cholesterol or triglycerides levels. A detailed laboratory analysis revealed the presence of mild monoclonal gammopathy with a presence of immunoglobulin G (IgG) kappa light chains; however, according to hematologist consultation, it did not require medical intervention.

Hautklinik, Universitätsmedizin der Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, Langenbeckstr. 1, 55131, Mainz, Deutschland.

Within the center of palisaded granulomas, mucin or fibrin can be found. Read More
