Varicella zoster virus as a possible trigger for the development of pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta: retrospective analysis of our institutional cases.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2018 Aug 23;43(6):703-707. Epub 2018 May 23.

Department of Dermatology, Kyorin University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Although numerous infective agents, including varicella zoster virus (VZV), have been described in association with pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA) and pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC), none has been identified consistently in these lesions. We sought to immunohistochemically identify VZV glycoprotein (g)E antigens in the vascular endothelium in PLEVA and PLC lesions, based on our previous observation that gE was detected in the vascular endothelium and eccrine unit up until 2 months and 2.5, respectively, years after herpes zoster (HZ) infection.

Autoinflammatory keratinization diseases: An emerging concept encompassing various inflammatory keratinization disorders of the skin.

J Dermatol Sci 2018 May 1;90(2):105-111. Epub 2018 Feb 1.

Department of Dermatology, Fujita Health University School of Medicine, Toyoake, Japan.

Classifying inflammatory skin diseases is challenging, especially for the expanding group of disorders triggered by genetic factors resulting in hyperactivated innate immunity that result in overlapping patterns of dermal and epidermal inflammation with hyperkeratosis. For such conditions, the umbrella term "autoinflammatory keratinization diseases" (AIKD) has been proposed. AIKD encompasses diseases with mixed pathomechanisms of autoinflammation and autoimmunity, and includes IL-36 receptor antagonist (IL-36Ra)-related pustulosis, CARD14-mediated pustular psoriasis, pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) type V, and familial keratosis lichenoides chronica (KLC).

Possible role of plasmacytoid dendritic cells in pityriasis lichenoides.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2018 Jun 19;43(4):404-409. Epub 2018 Jan 19.

Department of Dermatology, American University of Beirut Medical Center, Beirut, Lebanon.

Background: Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) and their product, type I interferons (IFNs), have been implicated in the pathogenesis of several skin disorders characterized by an interface dermatitis (ID) pattern, such as lichen planus (LP). A type I IFN signature has previously been documented in pityriasis lichenoides (PL). Although pDCs are known to be the main source and most potent producers of local type I IFNs, their role in PL has not been investigated. Read More

Severe Mucha-Habermann-Like Ulceronecrotic Skin Disease in T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Responsive to Basiliximab and Stem Cell Transplant.

Pediatr Dermatol 2017 Sep;34(5):e265-e270

Division of Oncology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

A 5-year-old girl with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) developed a progressive eruption of crusted papules and ulcerative plaques involving 80% of her body surface area with histopathology consistent with febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease (FUMHD), although multiple specimens also contained clonal leukemic cells. Her skin disease was refractory to many classic treatments for FUMHD, including methotrexate, and became so severe that concern about superinfection prevented intensification of chemotherapy for her malignancy. The addition of basiliximab promoted gradual improvement of the skin, allowing for chemotherapy intensification and subsequent bone marrow transplantation, after which the eruption resolved completely.

Paraviral exanthems are distinct skin diseases due to infections with different viruses. Although no virus has been identified so far in some exanthems, the main age of manifestation, the clinical course of the exanthem, and the extracutaneous symptoms are suggestive for a viral genesis. While many viral infections are a direct result of the infection, paraviral exanthems reflect the response of the immune system to the infectious pathogens. Read More

Research Unit Dermatopathology, Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Graz, Auenbruggerplatz 8, 8036 Graz, Austria. Electronic address:

Primary cutaneous lymphomas represent a broad group of diseases with different clinical, histopathological, phenotypic, molecular, and prognostic features. All cutaneous lymphomas share the same tropism of neoplastic lymphocytes for the skin, but precise classification is paramount for proper management of the patients. Primary cutaneous lymphomas are classified according to the schemes proposed by the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC)-Cutaneous Lymphomas Task Force together with the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2005, and the WHO classification of 2008 with the 2016 update.

Phototherapy can be a safe and effective treatment for various skin diseases in children. Special considerations governing the use of this treatment modality in pediatric populations include patient, family, and facility-based factors that are oriented around heightened concerns with regard to safety and tolerability of treatment. Although phototherapy has been found to be effective in a wide range of dermatologic conditions affecting pediatric populations, including psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, pityriasis lichenoides, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, and vitiligo, there is need for additional research on other conditions in which phototherapy has shown promise.

Phototherapy for Pityriasis Lichenoides in the Pediatric Population: A Review of the Published Literature.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2016 Dec;17(6):583-591

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, 1475 NW 12th Ave., Miami, FL, 33136, USA.

Background: Pityriasis lichenoides (PL) is a dermatologic disorder that manifests in either the acute (pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta) or the chronic form (pityriasis lichenoides chronica, also known as parapsoriasis chronica). Traditional first-line therapy consists of corticosteroids or antibiotics; however, these treatments are often accompanied with multiple side effects and may be ineffective.

Objective: The goal of this study was to review the use of phototherapy for treating PL in the pediatric population. Read More

Febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease in an 8-year-old boy responding to methotrexate.

Int J Dermatol 2016 Nov;55(11):1205-1209

ExpressMed Laboratories, Kingdom of Bahrain.

Background: Febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease (FUMHD) is a rare fulminant variant of pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA) characterized by a rapidly progressive course with predominant ulceronecrotic lesions associated with fever and systemic manifestations. First described by Degos in 1966, it carries a high morbidity and is potentially fatal. The exact pathogenesis is not clear, but it is proposed to be the result of hypersensitivity reaction to an infection. Read More

Bay Dermatology/Largo Medical Center, Florida, USA.

Pityriasis lichenoides is an uncommon, acquired, idiopathic, self-limiting skin disease that poses a challenge to patients and clinicians to diagnose and treat. Several variants exist including pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA), pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC), and febrile ulcer-onecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease. Precise classification can be difficult due to an overlap of clinical and histologic features. Read More

Paraviral exanthems.

Expert Rev Anti Infect Ther 2016 06;14(6):601-11

c School of Public Health and Primary Care , The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Prince of Wales Hospital , Shatin , Hong Kong.

Introduction: Paraviral exanthems are skin diseases suspected to be caused by viruses, with a single virus-exanthem relationship not universally accepted. Although most paraviral exanthems are self-remitting, accurate diagnoses are important as some patients might develop complications. Some of the differential diagnoses might cause serious complications, and some paraviral exanthems might lead to complications for at-risk groups such as pregnant women. Read More

Seasonal variations in dermatologic and dermatopathologic diagnoses: a retrospective 15-year analysis of dermatopathologic data.

Int J Dermatol 2016 Oct 7;55(10):1115-8. Epub 2016 Apr 7.

Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Background: Certain dermatologic conditions are known to show seasonal variations in frequency, the reasons for which are unclear but in some cases may be attributable to changes in ambient weather conditions.

Objectives: The current study was conducted to determine whether seasonal trends might exist for dermatologic conditions including erythema multiforme, guttate psoriasis, erythema dyschromicum perstans (ashy dermatosis), pityriasis lichenoides, and pityriasis rosea.

Methods: Data were derived from a 15-year retrospective review of electronic records from a large dermatopathology laboratory located in the mid-Atlantic region of the USA. Read More
