The Epidemiology of Micro-arteriovenous Fistulas in the Lower Legs.

Ann Vasc Surg 2018 Nov 28. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Surgery, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Japan.

Background: Patients presenting with edema, skin redness, pain, and itching in their lower legs are common and encountered often in daily practice. However, although commonly recognized diseases such as deep venous thrombosis, stasis dermatitis due to varicose veins, lymphedema, and cellulitis are diagnosed correctly in most cases, micro-arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) may often be overlooked due to low awareness and rarity. This study was carried out to evaluate the prevalence of micro-AVF in patients presenting with foot skin symptoms. Read More

Minerva Med 2018 Aug 24;109(4):276-279. Epub 2018 Apr 24.

Gemelli Policlinic, Rome, Italy -

Background: Superficial thrombophlebitis (STP) is a relatively frequent pathology characterized by possible extension to the deep venous circulation, with notable local inflammatory reaction which is treated by subcutaneous administration of Fondaparinux. Stasis dermo-hypodermitis is characterized by cutaneous hyperpigmentation and eczema, treatment for which consists of the use of drugs targeting endothelial cells (mesoglycan, FFPM, sulodexide). In this study we evaluated the impact of local application of a mixture of semi-synthetic polysulfated galactosaminoglycans on the regression rate of STP and dermo-hypodermitis in patients treated with best medical therapy (BMT).

Department of Dermatology, University of Texas McGovern Medical School at Houston, 6655 Travis St, Ste 980, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Stasis dermatitis commonly occurs in older age. It is caused by venous hypertension resulting from retrograde flow due to incompetent venous valves, valve destruction, or obstruction of the venous system. Further tissue changes arise from an inflammatory process mediated by metalloproteinases, which are up-regulated by ferric ion from extravasated red blood cells. Read More

Ruocco's immunocompromised cutaneous district.

Int J Dermatol 2016 Feb 16;55(2):135-41. Epub 2015 Oct 16.

Dermatology and Pathology, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Newark, NJ, USA.

The concept of 'locus minoris resistentiae' (lmr) is an old but still effective way of thinking in Medicine. In Dermatology, there are many reports of privileged localization of cutaneous diseases on injured skin, which therefore represents a typical condition of lmr. Lately the innovative concept of immunocompromised cutaneous district (ICD) has been introduced to explain why a previously injured cutaneous site may become in time a privileged location for the outbreak of opportunistic infections, tumors, and immune reactions.

Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology, New York University School of Medicine, 530 1st Ave, Ste 7J, New York, NY 10016, USA.

Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a vascular neoplasm associated with human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) infection that can be confused with the clinical and histological findings of chronic venous insufficiency. Definitive diagnosis of KS can only be achieved by performing a polymerase chain reaction for HHV-8 or by immunostaining for the HHV-8 antigen. We describe 2 unusual clinical presentations of KS in the setting of chronic venous insufficiency with clinical and histologic features consistent with stasis dermatitis but positive HHV-8 immunostaining.

Keratinocyte Migration and a Hypothetical New Role for Extracellular Heat Shock Protein 90 Alpha in Orchestrating Skin Wound Healing.

Adv Wound Care (New Rochelle) 2015 Apr;4(4):203-212

Department of Dermatology, USC Laboratories for Investigative Dermatology, USC/Norris Cancer Center, The Keck Medical Center and the Los Angeles Greater VA Healthcare System, University of Southern California , Los Angeles, California.

The treatment and care of patients with skin wounds are a major healthcare expenditure. Burn wounds, iatrogenic surgical wounds, venous stasis dermatitis ulcers, diabetic lower limb ulcers, pressure ulcers, and skin wounds from peripheral neuropathies are largely treated with only supportive care. Despite a great deal of research into using growth factors as therapeutic agents, to date, the field has been disappointing. Read More

Risk factors associated with a reduced response in the treatment of erysipelas.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2015 Mar 23;13(3):217-25. Epub 2015 Feb 23.

Klinik für Dermatologie, Venerologie und Allergologie, Universitätsmedizin Mannheim, Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, Mannheim, Germany.

Background: In most cases, erysipelas may be adequately treated using first-line antibiotic therapy. However, clinicians are sometimes confronted with complicated cases, in which patients do not respond to initial antibiotic therapy. The objective of this study was to identify risk factors associated with a reduced response to antibiotic therapy and, thus, a more complicated disease course. Read More

Chronic pruritus in the elderly: pathophysiology, diagnosis and management.

Drugs Aging 2015 Mar;32(3):201-15

Department of Dermatology and Itch Center, Temple University School of Medicine, 3322 North Broad Street, Medical Office Building, Suite 212, Philadelphia, PA, 19140, USA.

Chronic itch in the elderly is a common problem, with a significant impact on quality of life and sleep in elderly patients. Chronic itch may be attributable to several causes, including dry skin, immunosenescence and neural degeneration. Itch may also be caused by skin diseases, such as seborrhoeic dermatitis and stasis dermatitis; systemic conditions, such as end-stage renal disease and diabetes; and psychogenic conditions, such as depression and anxiety.

J Andrew Carlson

Clin Dermatol 2014 Sep-Oct;32(5):599-615

Divisions of Dermatopathology and Dermatology, Department of Pathology, Albany Medical College, MC-81, Albany, NY 12208. Electronic address:

Whether primary or secondary, lymphedema is caused by failure to drain protein-rich interstitial fluid. Typically affecting a whole limb, it has become apparent that lymphedema can also affect localized regions of the skin, or it can be clinically silent but histologically evident, denoted by dilated lymphangiectases (latent lymphedema). Chronic lymph stasis has numerous consequences, including lipogenesis, fibrosis, inflammation, lymphangiogenesis, and immunosuppression. Read More

The immunocompromised district in dermatology: A unifying pathogenic view of the regional immune dysregulation.

Clin Dermatol 2014 Sep-Oct;32(5):569-76

Dermatology Unit, Kaplan Medical Center, Rehovot, Israel. Affiliated to The School of Medicine, Hebrew University and Hadassah, Jerusalem.

Besides the systemic immune deficiency, a sectorial default in immune control may occur in immunocompetent subjects. This regional immune defect can appear and remain confined to differently damaged skin areas, lately labeled immunocompromised districts (ICDs). An ICD is a skin area more vulnerable than the rest of the body for genetic or acquired reasons. Read More

Pseudo-Kaposi sarcoma worsening after leg vein harvest for coronary artery bypass grafting.

Ann Saudi Med 2014 Mar-Apr;34(2):179-81

Dr. Muzamil Amin Chisti, Department of Dermatology,, King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre,, Riyadh 11211, Saudi Arabia, T: +966114424608, F: +966114424603,

Acroangiodermatitis (AAD) (synonym, pseudo-Kaposi sarcoma) is a term that encompasses 2 different conditions: (1) AAD of Mali, which refers to skin lesions that mainly develop bilaterally on the lower extremities of patients with chronic venous insufficiency and is an extreme form of stasis dermatitis and (2) Stewart-Bluefarb syndrome, which consists of an arteriovenous malformation that mainly affects the limbs of young patients unilaterally. We present a case of a 68-year-old lady with progressive skin lesions on both lower limbs (right > left) as a result of chronic venous insufficiency that became worse after the leg-vein harvest for coronary artery bypass grafting was taken from the right leg. Up to our knowledge this is the first case of its kind to be reported. Read More
