Tumour TIF1 mutations and loss of heterozygosity related to cancer-associated myositis.

Rheumatology (Oxford) 2018 02;57(2):388-396

Internal Medicine Department, Vall d'Hebron University Hospital, Barcelona, Spain.

Objectives: To analyse the influence of genetic alterations and differential expression of transcription intermediary factor 1 (TIF1) genes in the pathophysiology of cancer-associated myositis (CAM).

Methods: Paired blood and tumour DNA samples from patients with anti-TIF1γ-positive CAM and from controls were analysed by whole-exome sequencing for the presence of somatic mutations and loss of heterozygosity (LOH) in their TIF1 genes. The genesis and maintenance of the autoimmune process were investigated immunohistochemically by studying TIF1γ expression in the different tissues involved in CAM (skin, muscle and tumour) based on the immunohistochemical H-score.

Life-threatening paraneoplastic cutaneous syndromes.

Clin Dermatol 2005 May-Jun;23(3):301-6

Division of Dermatology, Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, Springfield, 55026, USA.

Paraneoplastic syndromes are diseases or symptom complexes associated with malignancy, usually internal. In dermatology, we modify the definition to refer to dermatoses associated with internal malignancy. In this article, we discuss the link between malignancy and such dermatologic disorders as acanthosis nigricans, acrokeratosis paraneoplastica of Bazex, dermatomyositis, erythema gyratum repens, necrolytic migratory erythema (glucagonoma syndrome), and paraneoplastic pemphigus and discuss, where such information is known, the mechanism by which these paraneoplastic diseases occur.
