Rinsho Ketsueki 2018;59(10):2349-2353

Division of Hematology, Department of Internal Medicine, Aichi Medical University.

Platelet transfusion concentrates are commonly used to prevent and treat bleeding due to thrombocytopenia and abnormal platelet function. Although these concentrates are indispensable while safely conducting anticancer chemotherapy and surgery, their use may cause certain adverse effects, including fever, urticaria, anaphylaxis, and transfusion-related acute lung injury. In addition, repeated platelet transfusions may induce allogeneic antibodies, possibly resulting in platelet transfusion refractoriness (PTR). Read More

Urticaria: A comprehensive review: Treatment of chronic urticaria, special populations, and disease outcomes.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2018 Oct;79(4):617-633

Division of Immunology and Allergy, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Second-generation antihistamines are considered first-line agents in the treatment of chronic urticaria because of their safety and efficacy profile. Some patients require higher doses of H antihistamines alone or in combination with other classes of medications, including H antihistamines, leukotriene receptor antagonists, or first-generation H antihistamines. One major therapeutic advance has been omalizumab, a humanized monoclonal anti-immunoglobulin E that was recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of chronic urticaria that is unresponsive to H antagonists.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner sign: a hallmark of flea and bedbug bites.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Sep-Oct;93(5):759-760

Department of Dermatology and Radiotherapy, Faculdade de Medicina de Botucatu, Universidade Estadual Paulista, Botucatu (SP), Brazil.

Human, dog, and cat fleas, as well as bedbugs, feed by biting their victims, causing acute prurigo, which is aggravated in sensitized victims (papular urticaria). The lesions appear in the classic "breakfast, lunch, and dinner" pattern. There are two main explanations: the parasites "map" the skin area in search of the best places to bite, and their removal when victim scratches, and then reattach to the skin. Read More

Mimickers of Urticaria: Urticarial Vasculitis and Autoinflammatory Diseases.

J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract 2018 Jul - Aug;6(4):1162-1170. Epub 2018 Jun 2.

Department of Infectious Diseases and Immunity, Jessa Hospital. BIOMED Research Institute, University of Hasselt, Hasselt, Belgium.

A wide differential diagnosis must be considered in a patient presenting with urticarial plaques. Although acute and chronic urticaria are the commonest diagnoses, other differential diagnoses include polymorphous eruption of pregnancy, mast cell disorders, hypereosinophilic syndrome, urticarial vasculitis, pemphigoid, systemic lupus erythematosus, and autoinflammatory disease. This review will specifically address urticarial vasculitis and autoinflammatory syndromes. Read More

Angioedema: A Life-threatening Complication of Tissue Plasminogen Activator.

Cureus 2018 Mar 29;10(3):e2392. Epub 2018 Mar 29.

Internal Medicine, John H Stroger J. Hospital of Cook County.

Angioedema is a localized, non-pitting, non-dependent, submucosal, and subcutaneous swelling resulting from the extravasation of fluid into the interstitium due to the increased production of plasma kinins and histamine. It can present with urticaria or anaphylaxis and is usually associated with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEis), complement deficiencies, or the side effects of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). Orolingual angioedema following tPA for acute ischemic stroke is a transient, self-resolving hemifacial swelling contralateral to neurological deficits that can rarely progress to the airway, compromising it and leading to a life-threatening situation if not managed promptly.

Four cases of acute infectious urticaria showing significant elevation of plasma D-dimer level.

J Dermatol 2018 Aug 24;45(8):1013-1016. Epub 2018 May 24.

Department of Dermatology, Shiga University of Medical Science, Otsu, Japan.

D-dimer, a fibrinolytic end-product, has been regarded as a biomarker indicating the severity of urticaria, especially in chronic urticaria. Regarding acute urticaria, D-dimer level is also suggested to be elevated, which may be significant in comparison with chronic urticaria. However, the clinical features of acute urticaria with concomitant significant elevation of D-dimer level have not been investigated in detail so far. Read More

A Comparison of the United States and International Perspective on Chronic Urticaria Guidelines.

J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract 2018 Jul - Aug;6(4):1144-1151. Epub 2018 May 18.

University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Cincinnati, Ohio. Electronic address:

Urticaria is a heterogeneous skin disorder that may be acute or chronic and is defined by the appearance of wheals, angioedema, or both. The European perspective is expressed in a recent international guideline and the American perspective has been based on the US Joint Task Force chronic urticaria practice parameter published in 2014. Both the international guideline (initiated by the European societies European Academy of Allergology and Clinical Immunology [EAACI]/Global Allergy and Asthma European Network [GALEN]/European Dermatology Forum [EDF] in collaboration with the World Allergy Organization [WAO]) and the US (American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology/American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology) guideline have been developed to help direct primary care physicians and specialists in the management of their patients with urticaria.

A score for the differential diagnosis of bradykinin- and histamine-induced head and neck swellings.

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Jul 2;275(7):1767-1773. Epub 2018 May 2.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany.

Purpose: Acute edema of the head and neck region may lead to life-threatening dyspnea and require quick and targeted treatment. They can be subdivided in bradykinin- and histamine-mediated swellings, which require treatment with different classes of pharmaceuticals. Clinical pathways for differential diagnoses do not exist so far, although it is known that early treatment is decisive for faster symptom relief and reduced expression of the swellings. Read More

Twenty Years' Experience with Anaphylaxis-Like Reactions to Local Anesthetics: Genuine Allergy is Rare.

J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract 2018 Nov - Dec;6(6):2051-2058.e1. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Allergy, University Hospital Würzburg, Würzburg, Germany.

Background: Anaphylaxis-like reactions occur within minutes after the application of local anesthetics (LA), most commonly during dental interventions. Impressive symptoms including respiratory distress or loss of consciousness frequently give rise to a suspicion of allergy and may prompt patients and treating physicians to refuse future LA injections.

Objective: Nonallergic mechanisms are responsible for the majority of LA-induced immediate-type reactions. Read More
