Laboratory of Human Genetics of Infectious Diseases, Necker Branch, Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (INSERM) UMR-1163, Necker Hospital for Sick Children, Paris, EU, France.

Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) infect mucosal or cutaneous stratified epithelia. There are 5 genera and more than 200 types of HPV, each with a specific tropism and virulence. HPV infections are typically asymptomatic or result in benign tumors, which may be disseminated or persistent in rare cases, but a few oncogenic HPVs can cause cancers. Read More

and are lipophilic and lipid dependent yeasts, associated with the skin microbiota in humans and domestic animals, respectively. Although they are commensals, under specific conditions they become pathogens, causing skin conditions, such as pityriasis versicolor, dandruff/seborrheic dermatitis, folliculitis in humans, and dermatitis and otitis in dogs. Additionally, these species are associated with fungemia in immunocompromised patients and low-weight neonates in intensive care units with intravenous catheters or with parenteral nutrition and that are under-treatment of broad-spectrum antibiotics.

Background: Pityriasis capitis commonly known as dandruff is one of the most common and widely seen dermatological disease that affects majority of the world population. It is more than superficial flaking, as it leads to significant structural changes in the stratum corneum and inflammatory biomarkers. Various intrinsic and extrinsic factors, such as Malassezia yeast, host epidermal conditions, sebaceous secretion, and abnormal immune responses, are found to contribute to the pathogenesis.

Division of Paediatric Dermatology, Children's Hospital AUF DER BULT, Hannover, Germany.

Although the clinical presentations of patients with pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA) may vary, bullae are not usually part of the clinical spectrum. To date, only two other cases of a bullous variant of PLEVA with evidence of autoantibodies against hemidesmosomal antigens have been reported. The term PLEVA pemphigoides was suggested for this unique clinical, pathological and serological combination of both PLEVA and bullous pemphigoid. Read More

Yeasts of the genus, , formerly known as , are lipophilic yeasts, which are a part of the normal skin flora (microbiome). colonize the human skin after birth and must therefore, as commensals, be normally tolerated by the human immune system. The yeasts also have a pathogenic potential where they can, under appropriate conditions, invade the stratum corneum and interact with the host immune system, both directly but also through chemical mediators.

A rash is a disseminated eruption of cutaneous lesions with great variation in appearance, cause, and severity. When the physician is facing a rash, the history and physical examination of the patient are extremely important for the identification of the disease and its causal agent. There are various causes for a rash, which may be infectious, allergic, or rheumatologic, besides many others. Read More

Dermatoscopy in life-threatening and severe acute rashes.

Clin Dermatol 2020 Jan - Feb;38(1):113-121. Epub 2019 Nov 11.

Institute of Dermatology, Santa Maria della Misericordia University Hospital, Udine, Italy.

A prompt recognition of life-threatening and severe acute rashes is of utmost importance to start an appropriate therapy as soon as possible. Consequently, clinicians often must rely only on clinical data to make a diagnosis because some diagnostic procedures may take a relatively long time to be performed (eg, histologic examination, microbiologic tests). In this scenario, dermatoscopy may be useful as an auxiliary tool to support the diagnosis by highlighting subclinical features. Read More

Pityriasis rosea and other infectious eruptions during pregnancy: Possible life-threatening health conditions for the fetus.

Clin Dermatol 2020 Jan - Feb;38(1):105-112. Epub 2019 Oct 25.

Dermatologic Clinic, Policlinico San Martino, Largo R. Benzi 10, 16132 Genoa, Italy.

Any infectious illness presenting with an eruption in a pregnant patient may be associated with an increased risk of fetal loss. The viruses that can infect the placenta during maternal infection and can be transmitted to the fetus and cause congenital disease include the rubella virus, the measles virus, the varicella zoster virus, parvovirus B19, human cytomegalovirus, arboviruses, and hepatitis E virus type 1. In addition, some bacteria responsible for exanthematous diseases, like Treponema pallidum, can be transmitted during pregnancy from the mother to the fetus and cause fetal loss. Read More

Successful treatment of Pityriasis Versicolor by photodynamic therapy mediated by methylene blue.

Photodermatol Photoimmunol Photomed 2020 Mar 19. Epub 2020 Mar 19.

Institute of Physical Chemistry Rocasolano, CSIC, Madrid, Spain.

Background: Although systemic therapies are recommended for severe or recalcitrant cases of pityriasis versicolor (PV), they are not free of important side effects and drug interactions. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) utilizes the action of singlet oxygen and free radicals produced by a light-activated photosensitizer to kill viruses, bacteria, or fungi. In this study, the effect of a PDT mediated by methylene blue (MB) in PV was evaluated. Read More
