Bullous Pemphigoid with Atypical Skin Lesions and Acute Interstitial Nephritis: A Case Report and Focused Literature Review.

Am J Case Rep 2019 Feb 18;20:212-218. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Department of Internal Medicine, Mount Sinai Hospital, Chicago, IL, USA.

BACKGROUND The hallmark of bullous pemphigoid (BP) is widespread tense blisters arising on normal or erythematous skin, often with marked pruritus, the diagnosis of which is confirmed by direct immunofluorescence (DIF). BP is an autoimmune process that can be induced, though rarely, by medications. Drug-induced BP often has atypical clinical presentation, which requires a good understanding of other dermatological conditions with similar presentations, in particular, bullous subtype of erythema multiforme.

Childhood pemphigus foliaceus presenting as a polycyclic eruption: Case report and review of the literature.

Pediatr Dermatol 2019 Mar 14;36(2):236-241. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Dermatology, University of North Carolina School of Medicine, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Pemphigus foliaceus (PF) is an autoimmune bullous disorder that has occasionally been reported to present as a polycyclic or arcuate eruption in children. We present a case of childhood PF presenting as an annular and polycyclic eruption, which initially led to a diagnostic conundrum and a delay in diagnosis but which ultimately responded well to therapy with systemic steroids and rituximab infusions. We briefly review the literature on polycyclic presentations of PF in childhood as well as the use of rituximab for pediatric pemphigus. Read More

Epidermal necrolysis: SCORTEN performance in AIDS and non-AIDS patients.

An Bras Dermatol 2019 Jan-Feb;94(1):17-23

Division of Dermatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Universidade Estadual de Ponta Grossa, Ponta Grossa (PR), Brazil.

Background: Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis are life-threatening blistering drug reactions with high incidence of ocular sequela. The term 'Epidermal Necrolysis' has been recently used to better describe the full spectrum of the disease that includes Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis at opposite ends, which differ by the extent of body surface area with epidermal detachment. SCORTEN is a mortality prognosis score for 'Epidermal Necrolysis' cases that still needed validation in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Read More

Laboratory of the Division of Dermatology, University Hospital, Ribeirão Preto Medical School, Avenida Bandeirantes, 3900, 14049-900, Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil.

Pemphigus foliaceus (PF) and pemphigus vulgaris (PV) are autoimmune bullous diseases; they are endemic in the northeastern region of the state of São Paulo, Southeastern Brazil. Patients' copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), and selenium (Se) metabolic deficiencies have already been associated with PV pathogenesis in the Middle East but not in Brazil. Lead (Pb), Cu, Zn, and Se concentrations were determined in whole blood or serum samples obtained from 56 PV patients, 62 PF patients, and 135 healthy controls from the endemic region and compared.

Comorbidities affecting dermatologic patients are of significant importance to providers and highly relevant for appropriate patient counseling, screening practices, prevention, and treatment. This article seeks to highlight several of the newest findings in the literature regarding comorbidities associated with dermatologic diseases including atopic dermatitis, hidradenitis suppurativa, alopecia areata, chronic urticaria, and the pemphigus family of immunobullous diseases. Further investigation is needed for associations between atopic dermatitis and pancreatic cancer and pemphigus family diseases and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in order to better characterize the strength of these associations and clinical relevance.
