Pyogenic granuloma of the larynx: A rare cause of hemoptysis.

Am J Otolaryngol 2018 Oct 29. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Head and Neck Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Pyogenic granuloma (PG) may involve gingival mucosa (granuloma gravidarum) in pregnancy but rarely involves the airway.

Hautarzt 2018 Nov 22. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Dermatologie und Venerologie, Universitätsklinikum Rostock, Rostock, Deutschland.

Background: The PAPA syndrome, an acronym for pyogenic sterile arthritis, pyoderma gangraenosum and acne, is an autosomal dominant hereditary disease which is caused by a mutation in the PSTPIP1 ("proline-serine-threonine phosphatase interacting protein 1") gene located on chromosome 15 and encodes the proline-serine-threonine phosphatase-interacting protein 1. An association with Crohn's disease (CD), autoimmune diseases of the liver and PAPA syndrome has not yet been reported in the literature.

Mycobacterial Musculoskeletal Infections.

Thorac Surg Clin 2019 Feb;29(1):85-94

Program in Musculoskeletal Infections, Division of Infectious Diseases, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Cox Building, 5th Floor, 55 Fruit Street, Boston, MA 02114, USA. Electronic address:

Although less common as causes of musculoskeletal infection than pyogenic bacteria, both Mycobacterium tuberculosis and nontuberculous mycobacteria can infect bones and joints. Although tuberculous arthritis and osteomyelitis have been recognized for millennia, infections caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria are being identified more often, likely because of a more susceptible host population and improvements in diagnostic capabilities. Despite advances in modern medicine, mycobacterial infections of the musculoskeletal system remain particularly challenging to diagnose and manage. Read More

Benign Oral Mucosal Lesions: Clinical and Pathological Findings Part I- Benign Oral Mucosal lesions.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Department of Dermatology, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, MA. Electronic address:

A diverse spectrum of benign oral mucosal lesions exists, presenting as either isolated oral findings or in association with dermatological conditions. Oral lesions can closely resemble one another; therefore, it is important for clinicians to be able to recognize their distinctive features and recognize benign versus malignant disease and when a biopsy is warranted. In this continuing medical education series, we review oral anatomy and the clinical attributes of several benign lesions of the oral cavity along with the appropriate management and therapeutic modalities.

Periodic fevers and other autoinflammatory diseases.

Cas Lek Cesk 2018 ;157(3):122-129

Autoinflammatory diseases represent a relatively new and rapidly evolving group of rare disorders associated with mutations of genes encoding proteins with a key regulatory role in inflammatory response. Gradual discovery of mechanisms that link genetic disorder with its biochemical and immunological consequences leading to continuous or episodic inflammatory stimulation has enabled introduction of directed immunotherapies. Periodic fever syndromes belong to the so far best-known entities: familial Mediterranean fever, mevalonate kinase deficiency, cryopyrinopathies and TNF-receptor associated periodic syndrome.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2018 Dec;23(4):577-580

1 Department of Orthopaedics, Miri General Hospital, Miri, Malaysia.

Pyogenic granuloma, also known as lobular capillary hemangioma, is a benign vascular lesion of the skin or mucous membrane with rapid growth or repetitive trauma. Rarely seen in adult, its management varies and surgical intervention is usually common. We report a case of pyogenic granuloma of the right index finger in a 46-year-old gentleman who presented with painless swelling of the right index finger after a trivial injury. Read More

The Broad-Ranging Panorama of Systemic Autoinflammatory Disorders with Specific Focus on Acute Painful Symptoms and Hematologic Manifestations in Children.

Donato Rigante

Mediterr J Hematol Infect Dis 2018 1;10(1):e2018067. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Institute of Pediatrics, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli IRCCS, Rome, Italy.

Systemic autoinflammatory disorders (SAIDs) are inherited defects of innate immunity characterized by recurrent sterile inflammatory attacks involving skin, joints, serosal membranes, gastrointestinal tube, and other tissues, which recur with variable rhythmicity and display reactive amyloidosis as a potential long-term complication. Dysregulated inflammasome activity leading to overproduction of many proinflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin-1 (IL-1), and delayed shutdown of inflammation are considered crucial pathogenic keys in the vast majority of SAIDs. Progress of cellular biology has partially clarified the mechanisms behind monogenic SAIDs, such as familial Mediterranean fever, tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated periodic syndrome, cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome, mevalonate kinase deficiency, hereditary pyogenic diseases, idiopathic granulomatous diseases and defects of the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway.

Vascular anomalies comprise a spectrum of lesions including both tumours and malformations with variable clinical presentation and outcomes. While these disorders have been classified by their morphological features, there is increasing evidence that they are caused by germline or somatic gene mutations that may dictate their phenotypes, offering the possibility of precision-based targeted therapeutics. In the case of venous and lymphatic malformations, others and we have recently reported activating TEK and PIK3CA mutations. Read More

Institut Universitaire du Cancer Toulouse - Oncopole, 1 avenue Irène Joliot-Curie, 31059, TOULOUSE Cedex 9, France.

Targeted therapies and immunotherapies are associated with a wide range of dermatologic adverse events (dAEs) resulting from common signaling pathways involved in malignant behavior and normal homeostatic functions of the epidermis and dermis. Dermatologic toxicities include damage to the skin, oral mucosa, hair, and nails.
