Cutaneous paraneoplastic syndromes.

Semin Diagn Pathol 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

PRW Laboratories, Charlottesville, VA, United State.

A variety of cutaneous abnormalities can be seen in patients with malignant diseases, some of which are infectious, with others representing direct involvement of the skin by the underlying disorder. Yet another group of lesions can be regarded as associated markers of the malignant process, and, as such, are termed "paraneoplastic." This review considers the latter collection of conditions, grouping them by the generic type of malignancy that is usually linked to the paraneoplasia. Read More

Topical ketoconazole: a systematic review of current dermatological applications and future developments.

J Dermatolog Treat 2019 Jan 22:1-12. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

a Department of Dermatology , University of California , Irvine , CA, USA.

Introduction: Although labeling changes and market withdrawal have been implemented for oral ketoconazole (KTZ) due to serious adverse effects (AEs), topical KTZ is generally thought to be effective and safe for the treatment of superficial fungal infections. New dermatologic indications for the use of topical KTZ have arisen such as onychomycosis, blepharitis, and hair loss. This article aims to review the literature on topical KTZ's efficacy and AEs, as well as provide an overview on current insights regarding its mechanism of action and upcoming developments.

Development of Pityriasis Amiantacea after Valproic Acid Therapy.

Int J Trichology 2018 Sep-Oct;10(5):237-239

Department of Pathology, Northshore University Health System, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

Here, we present the case of a 16-year-old male who developed pityriasis amiantacea (PA) after the use of valproic acid. We propose that the keratinocyte proliferative activity of valproic acid mediated through the inhibition of glycogen synthase kinase-3β, and subsequent activation of the Wnt/β-catenin pathway could play a role in the development of PA. We additionally review the most relevant characteristics of this disease. Read More

Lao-Oxford-Mahosot Hospital-Wellcome Trust Research Unit (LOMWRU), Microbiology laboratory, Mahosot Hospital, Vientiane, Laos.

Background: Skin diseases are common and often have an impact on an individual's health-related quality of life. In rural communities where access to healthcare may be limited and individuals rely on farming for food and income, the impact of skin diseases may be greater. The objectives for this study were to perform an assessment of skin disease prevalence in a rural village in Laos and assess the associated impact of any skin disease found using the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI).

Photodermatol Photoimmunol Photomed 2018 Sep 29. Epub 2018 Sep 29.

Research Unit for Photodermatology, Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Graz, Graz, Austria.

Background: Medical phototherapy can lead to the manifestation of polymorphic light eruption (PLE), though little is known about the frequency of such events.

Aims: The aim of this Austrian single center study was to retrospectively investigate over a 4-year time period the frequency of PLE in patients prone to the condition and patients with other diseases under phototherapy (mainly narrow-band and broad-band UVB).

Materials And Methods: The data for analysis were obtained from the electronic health and patient record database and patient files of the Photodermatology Unit, Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Graz, Austria. Read More

Malassezia are lipophilic and commensal yeasts capable of inducing skin disease among susceptible hosts. However, severely immunocompromised patients and preterm infants admitted to intensive care units are particularly at risk of developing Malassezia systemic infections. Patients often have central venous catheters which are usually the portal of entry for colonization and infection. Read More
