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).

Background: Diagnosing and differentiating pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) from other disorders can be a challenging task. Although histopathology remains the gold standard, it may not be feasible at times, especially in children. Being noninvasive, dermoscopy can be of great diagnostic importance in such a scenario.

The CARD: BCL10: MALT1 (CBM) complex is an essential signaling node for maintaining both innate and adaptive immune responses. CBM complex components have gained considerable interest due to the dramatic effects of associated mutations in causing severe lymphomas, immunodeficiencies, carcinomas and inflammatory disease. While MALT1 and BCL10 are ubiquitous proteins, the CARD-containing proteins differ in their tissue expression. 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.

Atopic dermatitis is a common chronic pruritic inflammatory skin disorder, characterized by an abnormal skin barrier, immune dysfunction, and an altered skin microbiome. Atopic dermatitis may be seen in conjunction with a variety of other skin disorders due to the complex pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis, involving genetic and environmental factors that are associated with immune dysfunction, barrier defects, and altered skin microbiomes. Skin disorders associated with atopic dermatitis include diseases sharing similar genetic origins like ichthyosis vulgaris, infectious diseases such as impetigo, and eczema herpeticum, in addition to the cutaneous autoimmune diseases, alopecia areata, and vitiligo.

Dermatomycoses are dermatological infections very commonly encountered in private dermatological practice since they affect up to one third of the population. However, the symptoms are very often shared by other skin infections and disorders and may be highly atypical. It is thus impossible to make a diagnosis with any certainty on clinical grounds alone.

Pityriasis lichenoides (PL) is a spectrum of inflammatory skin diseases which include PL et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA) and PL chronica (PLC) as two ends of the disease and rarely both entities can coexist on the same patient. Treatment options are based on case series-reports, and anecdotes, and include topical corticosteroids, topical immunomodulators, systemic antibiotics (tetracycline, erythromycin), and phototherapy. Herein, we report a 13-year-old boy, exhibiting mixed manifestations of PLEVA and PLC lesions concurrently, with a rapid and dramatic response to azithromycin monotherapy. Read More

Background: Acyclovir has been reported as a potential therapy for pityriasis rosea (PR) in several clinical trials on the basis of evidence of the involvement of human herpes viruses 6 and 7.
Objective: We evaluated the efficacy of acyclovir for abating PR skin lesions within a fixed period.
Methods: We searched 4 databases for clinical trials that used oral acyclovir to treat PR and performed systematic review and meta-analysis to determine oral acyclovir's effect on skin lesions on the 14th day after commencing treatment. Read More

Pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) is a rare papulosquamous skin disorder, which is phenotypically related to psoriasis. Some familial PRP cases show autosomal dominant inheritance due to mutations leading to increased nuclear factor κB (NFκB) activation. Moreover, polymorphisms have also been implicated in sporadic PRP. Read More
