    Autoinflammatory keratinization diseases: An emerging concept encompassing various inflammatory keratinization disorders of the skin.
    J Dermatol Sci 2018 Feb 1. 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).

    Secukinumab: a review of the anti-IL-17A biologic for the treatment of psoriasis.
    Ther Adv Chronic Dis 2018 Jan 16;9(1):5-21. Epub 2017 Nov 16.
    Baylor Scott and White- Division of Dermatology, 3900 Junius Street, Suite 125, Dallas, TX 75246, USA.
    Psoriasis is a systemic inflammatory disease associated with numerous comorbidities and a profound impact on patients' quality of life. While its complex immune pathogenesis is still not fully delineated, current evidence supports a fundamental role of the T-helper-17 (TH-17) pathway and its related interleukin-17 (IL-17) cytokine. Thus, new antipsoriatic therapies have been developed to block this key cytokine and its downstream effects. Read More

    Histopathological aspects of psoriasis and its uncommon variants.
    G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2018 Apr 15;153(2):173-184. Epub 2017 Dec 15.
    Section of Dermatology, Department of Medical Science and Public Health, University of Cagliari, Cagliari, Italy.
    Psoriasis is a chronic complex multisystem, inflammatory, skin disorder that causes vasodilatation and hyperproliferation of keratinocytes, whose clinical expression includes a thickened, erythematous skin, often covered with silver gray scales. Psoriasis is a unique disease where both autoimmune and autoinflammatory responses coexist and the balance between the two components is essential in determining its clinical and histopathological presentation. Adaptive immune responses prevail in chronic plaque psoriasis while innate and autoinflammatory responses predominate in pustular psoriasis. Read More

    Immunohistopathological Findings of Severe Cutaneous Adverse Drug Reactions.
    J Immunol Res 2017 31;2017:6928363. Epub 2017 Oct 31.
    Division of Dermatology, Niigata University Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, 1-757 Asahimachi-dori, Chuo-ku, Niigata 951-8510, Japan.
    Diagnosis of severe cutaneous adverse drug reactions should involve immunohistopathological examination, which gives insight into the pathomechanisms of these disorders. The characteristic histological findings of erythema multiforme (EM), Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) provide conclusive evidence demonstrating that SJS/TEN can be distinguished from EM. Established SJS/TEN shows full-thickness, extensive keratinocyte necrosis that develops into subepidermal bullae. Read More
