Art of prevention: Allergic sensitization through damaged skin: Atopic, occupational, and stasis dermatitis.

Int J Womens Dermatol 2020 Dec 19;6(5):381-383. Epub 2020 Aug 19.

University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center/Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, United States.

The prevention of allergic contact dermatitis hinges on maintaining the integrity of the skin barrier and responding appropriately when it is disturbed. Although intact skin is subject to sensitization via highly irritating allergens, such as poison ivy, acutely inflamed and chronically inflamed skin is subject to sensitization to allergens without inherent irritant potential. In the chronically inflamed state of atopic dermatitis, sensitization to proteins, such as food, also carries a risk for systemic contact dermatitis via ingestion of the allergen. Read More

The Second Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, Guangzhou, China.

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that is associated with multiple coexisting conditions. Extensive literature suggests that psoriasis is a T-cell-mediated condition, and its pathogenesis is related to dysfunction of the immune system. Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) are a group of heterogeneous myeloid cells that have suppressive effects on T cells. Read More

University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University, 11100 Euclid Avenue, Lakeside Suite 6223, Cleveland, OH 44106, USA. Electronic address:

The duration of cutaneous inflammation preceding sensitization influences the resulting allergic response; the innate immune system instructs the adaptive immune response. Potent allergens that function as their own irritant cause classic T helper cell type 1 skewed dermatitis. Examples include poison ivy, epoxy resin, and methylchloroisothiazolinone. Read More

Clinical Psoriasiform Dermatitis Following Dupilumab Use for Autoeczematization Secondary to Chronic Stasis Dermatitis.

Cureus 2020 Apr 25;12(4):e7831. Epub 2020 Apr 25.

Dermatology, University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland, USA.

T helper 2 (Th2) and T helper 1 (Th1) mediated immune processes lie on a spectrum. Autoeczematization secondary to chronic stasis dermatitis may fall on the Th2 side of the spectrum due to skin stretch and chronic barrier dysfunction, supporting a primary Th2 response to self-antigen. In our patient, we posited that dupilumab would benefit autoeczematization secondary to chronic stasis dermatitis given its efficacy in atopic dermatitis, a Th2-mediated immune process.

Use of concentrate growth factors gel or membrane in chronic wound healing: Description of 18 cases.

Chao-Hsing Kao

Int Wound J 2020 Feb 29;17(1):158-166. Epub 2019 Oct 29.

Dermatologic Clinic, Taiwan.

Treating chronic skin wounds in patients with diabetes, bed sores, or stasis dermatitis is typically a time-consuming and costly process, and the outcome is not always promising. Concentrated growth factor (CGF) obtained from the autologous venous blood of patients via fractional centrifugation is employed for producing a CGF gel or membrane that can be applied to expedite self-regeneration of skin wounds. In this case report, we presented the results from 18 patients with chronic skin wounds treated with a CGF gel or membrane produced from autologous venous blood. Read More

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

Ann Vasc Surg 2019 Apr 28;56:29-35. 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
