Bullous pemphigoid-like rash revealing hypereosinophilic syndrome.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Jun 8;14(6). Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Department of Dermatology, Mohammed V University of Rabat, Rabat, Morocco.

Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) is a rare haematologic disorder characterised by unexplained, persistent eosinophilia with organ involvement. We report the case of a 74-year-old patient who presented with a pemphigoid-like bullous rash as the only manifestation of an HES. This report highlights the importance of the dermatological manifestations of this potentially life-threating condition that may initially present as a skin-limited disease. Read More

Impaired Wound Healing, Fibrosis, and Cancer: The Paradigm of Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 May 12;22(10). Epub 2021 May 12.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology, Thomas Jefferson University, 233 S. 10th Street, BLSB 406, Philadelphia, PA 19107, USA.

Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa (RDEB) is a devastating skin blistering disease caused by mutations in the gene encoding type VII collagen (C7), leading to epidermal fragility, trauma-induced blistering, and long term, hard-to-heal wounds. Fibrosis develops rapidly in RDEB skin and contributes to both chronic wounds, which emerge after cycles of repetitive wound and scar formation, and squamous cell carcinoma-the single biggest cause of death in this patient group. The molecular pathways disrupted in a broad spectrum of fibrotic disease are also disrupted in RDEB, and squamous cell carcinomas arising in RDEB are thus far molecularly indistinct from other sub-types of aggressive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).

Recognition and Management of Severe Cutaneous Adverse Drug Reactions (Including Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis).

Med Clin North Am 2021 Jul;105(4):577-597

Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, 3810 Springhurst Boulevard, Suite 200, Louisville, KY 40241, USA.

Severe cutaneous adverse reactions to medications (SCARs) include drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis, and acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis. They are all non-immunoglobulin E mediated hypersensitivity reaction patterns, distinguished from simple cutaneous drug eruptions by immunologic pathogenesis and internal organ involvement. Herein the clinical features, diagnostic workup, and management considerations are presented for each of these major SCARs. Read More

Clinicopathologic correlations of COVID-19-related cutaneous manifestations with special emphasis on histopathologic patterns.

Clin Dermatol 2021 Jan-Feb;39(1):149-162. Epub 2020 Dec 14.

Unit of Dermatology, Department Medical Sciences and Public Health, University of Cagliari, Cagliari, Italy.

Skin is one of target organs affected by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, and in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, a fast body of literature has emerged on related cutaneous manifestations. Current perspective is that the skin is not only a bystander of the general cytokines storm with thrombophilic multiorgan injury, but it is directly affected by the epithelial tropism of the virus, as confirmed by the detection of SARS-CoV-2 in endothelial cells and epithelial cells of epidermis and eccrine glands. In contrast with the abundance of epidemiologic and clinical reports, histopathologic characterization of skin manifestations is limited. Read More

MicroRNAs in pemphigus and pemphigoid diseases.

Autoimmun Rev 2021 Jul 7;20(7):102852. Epub 2021 May 7.

Department of Dermatology, Iuliu Hatieganu University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

Autoimmune blistering diseases are a heterogenous group of dermatological disorders characterized by blisters and erosions of the skin and/or mucous membranes induced by autoantibodies against structural proteins of the desmosome or the dermal-epidermal adhesion complex including the hemidesmosome. They consist of the two major disease groups, pemphigus and pemphigoid diseases (PPDs). The diagnosis is based on clinical findings, histopathology, direct immunofluorescence, and detection of circulating autoantibodies. Read More

Characterizing the presence of neutrophil extracellular traps in neutrophilic dermatoses.

Exp Dermatol 2021 May 9. Epub 2021 May 9.

Department of Dermatology, American University of Beirut Medical Center, Beirut, Lebanon.

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are implicated in the pathogenesis of multiple inflammatory dermatoses. However, characterization of NETs in neutrophilic dermatoses was performed on very limited number of patients; this limitation precluded definitive conclusions. In this case series of 57 patients, we compared the amounts of neutrophils producing NETs in cutaneous lesions of different entities of neutrophilic dermatoses (17 with pyoderma gangrenosum, 37 with Sweet's syndrome and three with subcorneal pustular dermatosis).

Single-keratinocyte transcriptomic analyses identify different clonal types and proliferative potential mediated by FOXM1 in human epidermal stem cells.

Nat Commun 2021 05 4;12(1):2505. Epub 2021 May 4.

Centre for Regenerative Medicine "Stefano Ferrari", University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Modena, Italy.

Autologous epidermal cultures restore a functional epidermis on burned patients. Transgenic epidermal grafts do so also in genetic skin diseases such as Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa. Clinical success strictly requires an adequate number of epidermal stem cells, detected as holoclone-forming cells, which can be only partially distinguished from the other clonogenic keratinocytes and cannot be prospectively isolated.

Dynamics of Mud Blister Worm Infestation and Shell Repair by Oysters.

Biol Bull 2021 04 8;240(2):118-131. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

AbstractMud blister worms bore into oyster shells; and oysters respond to shell penetration by secreting new layers of shell, resulting in mud blisters on inner surfaces of oyster shells. We conducted two experiments in off-bottom oyster farms along Alabama's coast in summer 2017 to explore the dynamics of worm infestation, blister formation, and shell repair. Results support our hypothesis that only a small proportion of worms that bore into oysters cause blisters. Read More

hTERT-Driven Immortalization of RDEB Fibroblast and Keratinocyte Cell Lines Followed by Cre-Mediated Transgene Elimination.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Apr 7;22(8). Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Center for Precision Genome Editing and Genetic Technologies for Biomedicine, Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University, Ostrovityanova 1, 117997 Moscow, Russia.

The recessive form of dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB) is a crippling disease caused by impairments in the junctions of the dermis and the basement membrane of the epidermis. Using ectopic expression of hTERT/hTERT + BMI-1 in primary cells, we developed expansible cultures of RDEB fibroblasts and keratinocytes. We showed that they display the properties of their founders, including morphology, contraction ability and expression of the respective specific markers including reduced secretion of type VII collagen (C7).
