Cutaneous Histopathology and Immunopathology Section, Department of Dermatology, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland.

Despite a significant increase in reported cases of frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) in literature, discussion about the possible role of environmental factors, instruction for diagnosis and guideline for treatment, are limited. The review aims to provide a detailed synthesis of this condition that could be used by clinicians in their practise. Whether single-centre or multi-centre, studies of more than 60 cases less than 5 years old were mainly taken into consideration. Read More

Lichen Planopilaris Arising between Two Linear Surgical Scars.

Int J Trichology 2022 May-Jun;14(3):112-114. Epub 2022 May 24.

Department of Dermatology, Graduate School of Medical Science, Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan.

Lichen planopilaris (LPP) is a type of lymphocytic cicatricial alopecia, which can occur at unusual sites. It can be difficult to diagnose at an early stage and may be misdiagnosed as seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis in early stages before alopecia occurs. We report a rare case in which alopecia occurred between two long surgical scars on the scalp several years after surgery. Read More

Malassezia virulence factors and their role in dermatological disorders.

Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Pannonica Adriat 2022 Jun;31(2):65-70

Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Christian University of Krida Wacana (UKRIDA), Jakarta, Indonesia.

Malassezia is a commensal fungus that constitutes normal skin microbiota. However, in certain conditions and individuals, it may transform into a pathogenic yeast with multiple associated dermatological disorders and various clinical manifestations. This phenomenon is influenced by a unique host-agent interaction that triggers the production of several virulence factors, such as indoles, reactive oxygen species, azelaic acid, hyphae formation, and biofilm formation.

Multi-Modal Imaging to Assess the Follicular Delivery of Zinc Pyrithione.

Pharmaceutics 2022 May 17;14(5). Epub 2022 May 17.

Therapeutics Research Centre, UniSA-Clinical and Health Sciences, University of South Australia, Adelaide, SA 5000, USA.

Zinc pyrithione (ZnPT) is a widely used antifungal, usually applied as a microparticle suspension to facilitate delivery into the hair follicles, where it then dissociates into a soluble monomeric form that is bioactive against yeast and other microorganisms. In this study, we use multiphoton microscopy (MPM) and fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) to characterise ZnPT formulations and map the delivery of particles into follicles within human skin. To simulate real-world conditions, it was applied using a massage or no-massage technique, while simultaneously assessing the dissolution using Zinpyr-1, a zinc labile fluorescent probe. Read More

Seborrheic Dermatitis in Older Adults: Pathogenesis and Treatment Options.

Drugs Aging 2022 05 8;39(5):315-321. Epub 2022 Apr 8.

Department of Dermatology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, 1720 University Blvd, Suite 500, Birmingham, AL, 35294, USA.

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common and chronic skin disease, which is particularly prevalent in older adults. While a specific cause of seborrheic dermatitis remains largely unelucidated, the currently understood pathogenesis of seborrheic dermatitis revolves around the presence of Malassezia yeast colonies and an inflammatory response in the affected individual. Keratinocyte proliferation resulting from inflammasome response in the host skin leads to the clinically relevant symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis. Read More
