Analysis of Anti-C1q Autoantibodies by Western Blot.

Methods Mol Biol 2019 ;1901:183-189

Clinical Immunology and Transfusion Medicine, Region Skåne, Sweden.

Anti-C1q autoantibodies may be found in many conditions, most commonly in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and hypocomplementemic urticarial vasculitis syndrome (HUVS), and are diagnostic markers as well as disease activity markers in lupus nephritis. Sera from patients with SLE and HUVS show partly distinct autoantibody reactivities to separated protein chains B and C of the first component of complement, C1q. These different binding specificities can be detected by Western blot analysis of the autoantibodies under reducing conditions. Read More

Complement Activation in Inflammatory Skin Diseases.

Front Immunol 2018 16;9:639. Epub 2018 Apr 16.

Department of Pathology, Erasmus Medical Center Rotterdam, Rotterdam, Netherlands.

The complement system is a fundamental part of the innate immune system, playing a crucial role in host defense against various pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Activation of complement results in production of several molecules mediating chemotaxis, opsonization, and mast cell degranulation, which can contribute to the elimination of pathogenic organisms and inflammation. Furthermore, the complement system also has regulating properties in inflammatory and immune responses. Read More

Université Paris-Saclay, university Paris-Sud, CHU de Bicêtre, 78, avenue du Général-Leclerc, Le-Kremlin-Bicêtre, France.

Auto-inflammatory diseases are characterized by unexplained and recurrent attacks of systemic inflammation often involving the skin, joints, or serosal membranes. They are due to a dysfunction or dysregulation of the innate immunity, which is the first line of defense against pathogens. Early recognition of these diseases by the clinician, especially by pediatricians encountering such pathologies in pediatric patients, is primordial to avoid complications. Read More

Cutaneous and systemic vasculitides in dermatology: a histological perspective.

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2018 Apr 24;153(2):185-193. Epub 2018 Jan 24.

Unit of Dermatology, IRCCS Ca' Granda Foundation, Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Milan, Italy.

Cutaneous vasculitides encompass a wide and heterogeneous group of diseases affecting skin blood vessels that are clinically characterized by polymorphic skin lesions, particularly including palpable purpura as well as urticarial and necrotic-ulcerative lesions, with possible, albeit rare, extracutaneous involvement. Cutaneous leukocytoclastic angiitis and urticarial vasculitis, which are the two prototypic and most common variants of this group, are usually idiopathic but may also be induced by different triggers, notably drugs and infections, or may manifest in association with systemic disorders, particularly lupus erythematosus. Vasculitis skin lesions can also occur during the chronic-relapsing course of systemic vasculitides, such as granulomatosis with polyangiitis and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, with which cutaneous vasculitides can share clinical and histological features.

Ackerman Academy of Dermatopathology, New York, New York.

Background: Patients with Sweet syndrome (SS) have acute onset of cutaneous lesions with characteristic histopathology (dense and diffuse neutrophilic infiltrate, dermal edema, leukocytoclasis and no vasculitis) accompanied by systemic symptoms. Sometimes, only skin lesions with classic histopathologic features are seen. Although SS is considered to be a "neutrophilic dermatosis," lymphocytes are also seen on histological examination.

Bullous Pemphigoid Masquerading as Erythema Annulare Centrifugum.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2017 Oct;25(3):255-256

Sheng-Yiao Lin, No. 100, Tzyou 1st Road, Kaohsiung 807, Taiwan;

Dear Editor, Bullous pemphigoid (BP), a relatively common autoimmune blistering disease in the elderly, is characterized by large, tense bullae on urticarial, erythematous, or normal skin. However, atypical BP with polymorphic clinical presentations is rarely encountered, leading to misdiagnosis and delayed treatments (1). BP with lesions resembling erythema gyratum repens or figurate erythema has been regarded as a paraneoplastic phenomenon (1). Read More

Hypocomplementemic Urticarial Vasculitis Syndrome with Membranous Nephropathy: Case Report.

J Korean Med Sci 2017 Dec;32(12):2064-2068

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Kyung Hee University Medical Center, Seoul, Korea.

Urticarial vasculitis is a rare disorder that principally manifests with recurrent urticarial, sometimes hemorrhagic, skin lesions and/or angioedema. Its clinical presentation is not always limited to cutaneous lesions and it can potentially affect other organs, such as the joints, lungs, kidneys, and eyes. Systemic involvement can either be present at the onset of disease or develop over time. Read More

Cutaneous Manifestations of Small-Vessel Leukocytoclastic Vasculitides in Childhood.

Clin Rev Allergy Immunol 2017 Dec;53(3):439-451

Pediatric Department of Southern Switzerland, San Giovanni Hospital, 6500, Bellinzona, Switzerland.

In childhood, cutaneous small-vessel vasculitides include Henoch-Schönlein syndrome, a systemic vasculitis, and Finkelstein-Seidlmayer syndrome, a skin-limited vasculitis. Both Henoch-Schönlein and Finkelstein-Seidlmayer syndromes are seen more frequently in white or Asian compared with black children and occur especially in winter and spring with a male-to-female ratio of approximately 2:1. In everyday clinical practice, both conditions are diagnosed on clinical grounds without histological confirmation. Read More
