Head Neck Pathol 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry, Richmond, VA, USA.

When faced with an uncertain clinical pathosis in the oral cavity, identifying the color of the mucosal lesion helps to narrow down a differential diagnosis. Although less common than red and white lesions, yellow lesions encompass a small group of distinct mucosal pathologic entities. Adipose tissue, lymphoid tissue, and sebaceous glands are naturally occurring yellow constituents of the oral cavity and become apparent with associated developmental or neoplastic lesions.

Current and Emerging Evidence for Toll-Like Receptor Activation in Sjögren's Syndrome.

J Immunol Res 2018 20;2018:1246818. Epub 2018 Dec 20.

Department of Oral Biology, School of Dental Medicine, State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY 14214, USA.

While the importance of Toll-like receptor (TLR) signaling is well established in many autoimmune diseases, the role of TLR activation in Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is poorly understood. Studies in mice and humans reveal that TLRs are potent mediators of inflammation in SS. TLRs are expressed and functional in salivary tissue, and TLRs in peripheral blood cells of SS patients are also upregulated and hyperresponsive to ligation. Read More

New data in causes of autoinflammatory diseases.

Joint Bone Spine 2018 Nov 22. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Centre national de référence des maladies auto-inflammatoires et de l'amylose inflammatoire (CEREMAIA), 94270 Le Kremlin-Bicêtre, France; Cellules souches, plasticité cellulaire, médecine régénératrice et immunothérapies, Inserm, Université de Montpellier, 34090 Montpellier, France; Département de génétique médicale, maladies rares et médecine personnalisée, CHU de Montpellier, 34295 Montpellier, France.

The spectrum of factors known to mediate autoinflammation has broadened recently to include not only interleukin-1 (IL-1) and interferon, but also abnormalities that impair NF-κB pathway negative regulation. The NF-κB pathway is activated upon contact of a ligand with tumor necrosis factor receptor 1 (TNFR1) and plays a pivotal role in triggering the inflammatory process by producing major cytokines such as IL-1, IL-6, and TNF. Negative regulation of the NF-κB pathway, which is essential to stop the inflammatory process, depends on the level of ubiquitination of the proteins associated with TNFR1 and of other intermediate compounds.

Phenotyping Sjögren's syndrome: towards a personalised management of the disease.

Clin Exp Rheumatol 2018 May-Jun;36 Suppl 112(3):198-209. Epub 2018 Jul 25.

Sjögren's Syndrome Research Group (AGAUR), Laboratory of Autoimmune Diseases Josep Font, IDIBAPS-CELLEX, Department of Autoimmune Diseases, ICMiD, Hospital Clínic, Barcelona; and University of Barcelona, Spain.

Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a systemic autoimmune disease that mainly targets the exocrine glands. The disease overwhelmingly affects women around 30-60 years old, and more than 95% of patients present with oral and/or ocular dryness, although they may also develop a wide number of organ-specific systemic manifestations. The variable presentation is often linked to the influence of multiple personal determinants. Read More

Non-small cell lung cancer leptomeningeal metastases treated with intrathecal therapy plus osimertinib and temozolomide and whole-brain radiation therapy: a case report.

Onco Targets Ther 2018 10;11:4733-4738. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

Department of Medical Oncology, Shaanxi Provincial Cancer Hospital Affiliated to Medical School, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, Shaanxi 710061, People's Republic of China,

Rationale: Leptomeningeal metastasis (LM) is an important cause of mortality in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). As the symptoms of LM and its early clinical manifestations are nonspecific, early diagnosis of LM is difficult. However, there are few treatment options for LM, which leads to a poor prognosis; thus, increased clinical attention is necessary. Read More

Managing Clopidogrel Hypersensitivity without Interrupting Therapy: The Toronto Approach.

Authors:
Asim N Cheema

Curr Vasc Pharmacol 2019 ;17(2):119-122

Division of Cardiology, Terrence Donnelly Heart Center, St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto, ON M5B 1W8, Canada.

Clopidogrel remains a widely used antiplatelet agent for patients with established or high risk of atherothrombotic disease, particularly those treated with coronary, carotid or peripheral endovascular stenting. Clopidogrel hypersensitivity is an uncommon but well established adverse drug reaction presenting a challenge for patient management. The clinical presentation ranges from focal or diffuse cutaneous manifestations in most patients to angioedema in some and a systemic immune response in rare cases. Read More

Ichiro Katayama

Allergol Int 2018 Oct 10;67(4):448-454. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

Department of Dermatology, Course of Integrated Medicine, Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka University, 2-2 Yamada-oka, Suita-shi, Osaka 565-0871, Japan. Electronic address:

We have reported characteristic cutaneous manifestations of Sjögren syndrome (SS) with special references to autoimmune anhidrosis or hypoidrosis and related mucocutaenous manifestations in addition to annular erythema or cutaneous vasculitis. Although significance of cutaneous manifestations of SS has been gradually recognized in rheumatologists, sudomotor function has not been fully evaluated and recognized in the diagnosis of SS except for dermatologists. SS is a relatively underestimated collagen disease in contrast to SLE, systemic sclerosis, or dermatomyositis, special care should be needed not to make misdiagnosis of SS when we see the patients with common skin disease such as, drug eruption, infections skin disease or xerosis in the daily practice.

Division of Rheumatology and Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine and Pathology, Hospitals Kings County Hospital Brooklyn, State University of New York, USA.

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a rare autoimmune disease characterized by fibroproliferative alterations of the microvasculature leading to fibrosis and loss of function of the skin and internal organs. Gastrointestinal manifestations of SSc are the most commonly encountered complications of the disease affecting nearly 90% of the SSc population. Among these complications, the esophagus and the anorectum are the most commonly affected. Read More

Features distinguishing clinically amyopathic juvenile dermatomyositis from juvenile dermatomyositis.

Rheumatology (Oxford) 2018 Nov;57(11):1956-1963

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Medicine, George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Washington, DC.

Objective: We examined features of clinically amyopathic JDM (CAJDM), in which patients have characteristic rashes with little to no evidence of muscle involvement, to determine whether this is a distinct phenotype from JDM.

Methods: Demographic, clinical, laboratory and treatment data from 12 (9 hypomyopathic, 3 amyopathic) patients meeting modified Sontheimer criteria for CAJDM and from 60 matched JDM patients meeting Bohan and Peter criteria were examined. Differences were evaluated by Fisher's exact and Mann-Whitney tests, random forests and logistic regression analysis. Read More

Oral Myiasis in a Patient With HIV Manifestations and Neurologic Toxoplasmosis Treated by Ivermectin.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Sep;29(6):e555-e556

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Integrated Clinic, Araçatuba Dental School, UNESP, Araçatuba, Brazil.

Myiasis has been defined as a pathologic condition where dipterous larvae are lodged in mammalian hosts causing an infestation, which feeds on living or dead tissue for at least a certain period inside the host and develops itself as parasites. In humans, the most commonly affected sites are the nose, eyes, skin wounds, sinuses, lungs, ears, gut, gall bladder, vagina, nasal cavities, and rarely the mouth because the oral tissues are rarely exposed to the external environment. The etiology of oral myiasis is usually related to local factors such as poor oral hygiene, periodontal disease and labial incompetence, and systemic factors such as neurologic deficits. Read More
