[Pityriasis versicolor in infants: unusual clinical presentation and role of corticosteroids used as depigmenting agent for cosmetic purposes in the mother].

Pan Afr Med J 2017 23;26:31. Epub 2017 Jan 23.

UFR des Sciences de la Santé, Université de Thiès, Sénégal.

We report two cases of Pityriasis versicolor (PV) in infants aged 12 and 18 months. The latter were brought to medical attention because of hypochromic and achromic, round macules involving the limbs and the face. Physical examination of their mothers showed voluntary depigmentation for cosmetic purposes due to the use of corticosteroids and hydroquinone, on average, over a 5-year period. Read More

Confluent and Reticulated Papillomatosis With Linear Pseudo-striae: A Description of 20 Cases.

Actas Dermosifiliogr 2018 Mar 3;109(2):e7-e11. Epub 2017 Mar 3.

E.S.E Centro Dermatológico Federico Lleras Acosta, Bogotá D.C., Colombia; Fundación Universitaria Sanitas, Bogotá D.C., Colombia.

Confluent and reticulated papillomatosis, also known as Gougerot-Carteaud Syndrome, is a rare chronic disease typically affecting young adults. Of unknown etiology, the condition is characterised by oval grayish-brown or erythematous papules that coalesce to form a reticular pattern, usually on the trunk, especially in the intermammary or interscapular region and on the neck. Diagnosis is primarily clinical, based on the appearance of the lesions, the areas affected, and the response to treatment with minocycline. Read More

Distribution of Malassezia Species in Patients with Different Dermatological Disorders and Healthy Individuals.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2016 Dec;24(4):274-281

Professor Asja Prohić, MD, PhD, Department of Dermatovenerology, University Clinical Center of Sarajevo, Bolnicka 25, 71000 Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina;

There are differences with respect to the commonly isolated Malassezia species, not only between healthy individuals and the patients with various skin diseases, but also between different countries. We investigated the species composition of Malassezia microflora on the skin of patients with Malassezia-associated diseases and of healthy subjects (HS). Two hundred and fifty skin scrapings from patients with pityriasis versicolor (PV), seborrheic dermatitis (SD), atopic dermatitis (AD), psoriasis (PS), and healthy subjects (HS), fifty each, were inoculated into Sabouraud dextrose agar and into modified Dixon agar and identified using conventional culture-based methods.

Atrophic pityriasis versicolor occurring in a patient with Sjögren's syndrome.

BMJ Case Rep 2017 Jan 18;2017. Epub 2017 Jan 18.

Unit of Dermatology, University of Padua, Padua, Italy.

Pityriasis versicolor is one of the most frequent epidermal mycotic infections in the world, but its atrophic variant is rarely described. The aetiology of the atrophy is still unknown, and two main hypotheses have been formulated, one suggesting a correlation with long-term use of topical steroids and the other a delayed type hypersensitivity to epicutaneous antigens derived from components of the fungus. Atrophic pityriasis versicolor is a benign disease, but needs to be distinguished from other more severe skin diseases manifesting with cutaneous atrophy. Read More

Identification of small RNAs in extracellular vesicles from the commensal yeast Malassezia sympodialis.

Sci Rep 2017 01 4;7:39742. Epub 2017 Jan 4.

Department of Clinical Science and Education, Karolinska Institutet, and Sachs' Children and Youth Hospital, Södersjukhuset, SE-118 83 Stockholm, Sweden.

Malassezia is the dominant fungus in the human skin mycobiome and is associated with common skin disorders including atopic eczema (AE)/dermatitis. Recently, it was found that Malassezia sympodialis secretes nanosized exosome-like vesicles, designated MalaEx, that carry allergens and can induce inflammatory cytokine responses. Extracellular vesicles from different cell-types including fungi have been found to deliver functional RNAs to recipient cells. Read More
