Which factors influence Demodex proliferation? A retrospective pilot study highlighting a possible role of subtle immune variations and sebaceous gland status.

J Dermatol 2021 May 9. Epub 2021 May 9.

Institut de Recherche Interdisciplinaire en Biologie humaine et moléculaire (IRIBHM), Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Brussels, Belgium.

Demodex folliculorum and brevis are commensal mites that live in low densities in human pilosebaceous follicles as part of the normal adult microbiota, but that give rise to demodicosis and, possibly, rosacea, when they proliferate excessively. This proliferation is favored by various factors, including age, marked immunosuppression, sebaceous gland hyperplasia, and hypervascularization-related factors. To study possible factors influencing mite proliferation, we explored the effects of different variables on Demodex densities (Dd) in a retrospective study of two groups of subjects selected on the basis of their clinical diagnosis: Demodex+, consisting of subjects with demodicosis or with centro-facial papulopustules suggesting rosacea (n = 844, mean Dd 263.

Differential diagnoses of pseudolymphomatous folliculitis: considerations as regards one case.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Apr 28;14(4). Epub 2021 Apr 28.

Division of Population Health, Health Services Research & Primary Care, Faculty of Biology, Medicine & Health, University of Manchester, Manchester, UK

Pseudolymphomatous folliculitis (PLF) is a rare disease of cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia, with a low index of clinical suspicion. We present the clinical case of a 19-year-old male patient, with a solitary violet erythematous nodule of 6 months of evolution, located in the right infraorbital region, without presenting another symptomatology. Histopathological examination showed a lymphocytic infiltrate that surrounds the hair follicles, sebaceous and sweat glands that focally destroy their basement membrane. Read More

Androgen and Estrogen Receptor Expression in Different Types of Perianal Gland Tumors in Male Dogs.

Animals (Basel) 2021 Mar 19;11(3). Epub 2021 Mar 19.

Department and Clinic of Animal Surgery, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Life Sciences in Lublin, 20-612 Lublin, Poland.

Perianal gland tumors are modified sebaceous glands present in the skin of the perianal region in the dog. Hormonal stimulation may induce hyperplasia of the perianal glands or their neoplastic progression. The presence of androgen (AR) and estrogen (ER) receptors have been demonstrated both in normal perianal glands as well as in perianal tumors. Read More

Normal and Premature Adrenarche.

Endocr Rev 2021 Mar 31. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Emeritus of Pediatrics and Medicine, The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, Section of Adult and Pediatric Endocrinology, Metabolism, and Diabetes, Chicago, IL.

Adrenarche is the maturational increase in adrenal androgen production that normally begins in early childhood. It results from changes in the secretory response to ACTH that are best indexed by dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) rise. These changes are related to the development of the zona reticularis (ZR) and its unique gene/enzyme expression pattern of low 3ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 with high cytochrome b5A, sulfotransferase 2A1, and 17ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 5.

Conjunctival squamous intraepithelial neoplasia and its differential diagnosis.

J Clin Pathol 2021 Feb 22. Epub 2021 Feb 22.

Pathology and Cell Biology, and Ophthalmology, Morsani College of Medicine, Tampa, Florida, USA

Conjunctival squamous intraepithelial neoplasia (CSIN) represents the in situ precursor of squamous cell carcinoma. The graded severity of intraepithelial dysplasia is considered a measure of risk for progression to invasive carcinoma. The range of cytoarchitectural changes in CSIN overlaps those of reactive atypia, squamous epithelial papilloma and in situ sebaceous carcinoma. Read More

Neonatal Birthmarks at the 4 Central Hospitals in Vientiane Capital, Lao PDR.

Glob Pediatr Health 2021 27;8:2333794X21990908. Epub 2021 Jan 27.

Khon Kaen University, Khon Kaen, Thailand.

Newborn skin disorders are quite common and happen to occur during the neonatal period. Most of the birthmarks are transient; however, worried parents often seek medical advice from their child's physician regarding skin lesions. Thus, it is important to differentiate the skin lesions from pathologic ones to avoid unnecessary diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. Read More

Sex hormones and acne: State of the art.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2021 04 12;19(4):509-515. Epub 2021 Feb 12.

Department of Dermatology and Allergy, Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany.

Acne is an androgen-dependent inflammatory disease of sebaceous follicles. Herein, we reviewed and discussed the underlying pathways of androgen biosynthesis and metabolism, non-genomic regulation of androgen receptor expression and function, posttranslational regulation of androgen excess in acne and acne-associated syndromes, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. We provide insights into the involvement of sex hormones, particularly androgens, in skin homeostasis and acne pathogenesis, including comedogenesis, lipogenesis, microbiota, and inflammation.

Systemic isotretinoin treatment in a renal transplant patient developing sebaceous hyperplasia due to cyclosporine.

North Clin Istanb 2020 22;7(6):628-630. Epub 2020 Jul 22.

Department of Dermatology, Haseki Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Sebaceous hyperplasia (SH) is a benign tumor with telangiectasia on it, yellowish or skin-colored, with papulosis. Besides genetic factors, aging, ultraviolet rays, sex hormones, calcineurin inhibitors, such as cyclosporin, tacrolimus and systemic steroids, play a role in the development of sebaceous hyperplasia. Cyclosporin is widely used in organ transplant patients. Read More

Premature or nevoid sebaceous hyperplasia? Two case reports of a rare disease.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2021 Mar 23;20(3):835-837. Epub 2020 Dec 23.

Department of Pathology, University of Health Sciences Gazi Yaşargil Training and Research Hospital, Diyarbakır, Turkey.

Early or familial cases of sebaceous hyperplasia (SH) with multiple lesions, thought to be associated with genetic predisposition, have been reported in young individuals. Rarely reported variants include the giant, diffuse, zosteriform, and/or linear (nevoid) form. However, premature SH, defined as benign proliferation of sebaceous glands that occurs during or after puberty, is histologically similar to SH. Read More

Melatonin induces a stimulatory action on the scrotal skin components of Soay ram in the non-breeding season.

Sci Rep 2020 06 23;10(1):10154. Epub 2020 Jun 23.

Department of Anatomy and Histology, Faculty of Vet. Medicine, Assiut University, Assiut, Egypt.

Fifteen adult Soay rams were employed in this study to investigate the effect of melatonin on the scrotal skin using histological, histochemical, and morphometrical analysis. The results revealed that the melatonin treated group showed a significant increase in the thickness of the epidermis, the cross-sectional area of blood capillaries and nerve fibers compared with the control one. In addition, obvious hypertrophy and hyperplasia were detected in the sebaceous glands in association with a significant increase in the number and diameter of apocrine sweat glands with well-developed secretory activity.

Reflectance confocal microscopy: Diagnostic criteria of common benign and malignant neoplasms, dermoscopic and histopathologic correlates of key confocal criteria, and diagnostic algorithms.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2021 Jan 18;84(1):17-31. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

The Kittner Skin Cancer Screening and Research Institute, Sheba Medical Center and Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel; Dermatology Service, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Center, New York, New York.

Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a high-resolution, noninvasive tool that is currently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for obtaining and interpreting images of the skin and cutaneous neoplasms with the goal of decreasing unnecessary biopsy procedures in patients with benign lesions. The second article in this continuing medical education series focuses on identifying key criteria for the diagnosis of common skin cancers-melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. We contrast these findings with RCM features of common benign lesions-melanocytic nevi, solar lentigo, seborrheic keratosis, lichen planus-like keratosis, and sebaceous hyperplasia. Read More
