Dermatology Clinic, IRCCS San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Milan, Italy.

Cutaneous mucinoses are a heterogenous group of conditions, characterized by the deposition of glycosaminoglycans (mucin) in the dermis, follicles, or in the epidermis. Major cutaneous mucinoses include lichen myxedematosus, scleredema, mucinoses associated with thyroid disease, reticular erythematous mucinosis, papulonodular mucinosis associated with connective tissue diseases, and cutaneous focal mucinosis. The aim of this review is to provide an update of what has currently been reported in the last 30-year literature about several new or emerging conditions of acquired cutaneous mucinoses in adults.

Clinical and Histopathological Features of Scleroderma-like Disorders: An Update.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2021 Nov 20;57(11). Epub 2021 Nov 20.

U.O. Dermatologia, Ospedale San Marco, 95123 Catania, Italy.

Scleroderma-like disorders include a set of entities involving cutis, subcutis and, sometimes, even muscular tissue, caused by several pathogenetic mechanisms responsible for different clinical-pathological pictures. The absence of antinuclear antibodies (ANA), Raynaud's phenomenon and capillaroscopic anomalies constitutes an important element of differential diagnosis with systemic sclerosis. When scleroderma can be excluded, on the basis of the main body sites, clinical evolution, any associated pathological conditions and specific histological features, it is possible to make a correct diagnosis.

Clin Dermatol 2020 Mar - Apr;38(2):235-249. Epub 2019 Oct 24.

Department of Rheumatology and Immunology, University of Pécs Clinical Center, Pecs, Hungary. Electronic address:

Sclerodermalike syndromes (SLSs) comprise diseases with mucin deposition (eg, scleromyxedema, scleredema), with eosinophilia (eg, eosinophilic fasciitis), metabolic or biochemical abnormalities (eg, nephrogenic systemic fibrosis), or endocrine disorders (eg, POEMS syndrome, or polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal lymphoproliferative disorder, and hypothyroidism). Chronic graft-versus-host disease may also show sclerodermalike skin changes. Inherited progeria syndromes with early aging (eg, Werner syndrome) and a heterogeneous group of hereditary disorders with either skin thickening (eg, stiff skin syndrome) or atrophy and tightening (eg, acrogeria) can also imitate classic systemic sclerosis (SSc).
