[Genetic-morphological peculiarities of response to standard therapy in patients with dyshidrotic eczema of palms and soles].

Wiad Lek 2018 ;71(9):1707-1713

Department of Pathological and Topographic Anatomy of Shupyk National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, Kyiv, Ukraine.

Objective: Introduction: Dyshidrotic eczema of palms and soles (DEPS) is an inflammatory skin disorder that has a multifactorial nature and is characterized by the development of vesical elements with the histological picture of spongiosis and development of intraepidermal vesicles. The aim: Establishment of the features of pathomorphological changes of the epidermis and dermis in patients with manifestations of dyshidrotic lesions of palms and soles with different genotypic variants of the C646G of the NR3C1 gene before treatment based on the study of skin biopsies taking into account the response to standard therapy.

Patients And Methods: Materials and methods: In 57 patients with dyshidrotic lesions, a pathomorphological and immunohistochemical examination of biopsy specimens from a lesion focus of the skin were carried out and a genetic examination was carried out to determine the polymorphic variant C646G of the NR3C1 gene.

Ms. Krooks, Dr. Weatherall, and Dr. Markowitz are with the Florida Atlantic University Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine in Boca Raton, Florida.

A 70-year-old, immunocompetent male presented with mildly painful and pruritic erythematous patches and vesicles on the right dorsal aspect of the distal middle finger present for four weeks. Other skin lesions or systemic symptoms were notably absent. The patient failed to respond to valacyclovir, topical triamcinolone acetonide ointment, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, and cephalexin for presumptive diagnoses of recurrent herpetic whitlow, dyshidrotic eczema, and blistering distal dactylitis, respectively.

Clinical profile of recurrent vesicular palmoplantar dermatitis in children and adolescents.

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol 2019 3;12:23-28. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Sector of Dermatology, School of Medicine, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Background: Previously known as dyshidrosis, recurrent vesicular palmoplantar dermatitis (RVPD) is presented as severe eruption of nonerythematous, symmetrical vesicles or bullae located along the lateral sides of fingers, on the palmar or plantar areas, and developing into a chronic and recurrent condition. Although very frequently observed on the hands, there are no specific studies about such eczema in children and adolescents.

Objectives: To report on the RVPD clinical profile in children and adolescents, and monitor the association of RVPD with seasonal variations, hyperhidrosis, atopy and nickel sulfate. Read More

Dupilumab in the Treatment of Dyshidrosis: A Report of Two Cases.

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 Mar;17(3):355-356

Dupilumab (Dupixent, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals and Sanofi Genzyme) is a novel biologic medication recently approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis in adults who have not achieved adequate control with topical medications. Dyshidrotic eczema is a distinct entity, often considered on the spectrum of atopic dermatitis, that primarily effects the palms and soles; it is often associated with considerable morbidity yet is frequently challenging to treat. We report two cases of recalcitrant dyshidrotic eczema treated successfully with dupilumab at standard dosing. Read More

Dyshidrotic Bullous Pemphigoid: Case Report and Review of Literature.

J Cutan Med Surg 2018 Nov/Dec;22(6):614-617. Epub 2018 Mar 5.

1 Faculty of Medicine, Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada.

Background: Dyshidrotic pemphigoid (DP) is a rare variant of bullous pemphigoid (BP) that affects the hands and feet and may resemble an acute vesicular eczema. While it can remain confined to hands and feet, spread that involves the entire body is described. BP and DP are associated with autoantibodies directed against hemidesmosomal proteins BP180 (collagen XVII) and BP230 (dystonin), which are transmembrane and intracellular proteins in the basement membrane zone, respectively.

Impetiginized Dyshidrotic Eczema.

Open Access Maced J Med Sci 2017 Jul 19;5(4):539-540. Epub 2017 Jul 19.

Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Academic Teaching Hospital Dresden-Friedrichstadt, Friedrichstrasse 41, 01067, Dresden, Germany.

A 16 years old female patient, affected by atopic dermatitis and rhinoconjunctivitis allergica since childhood, requested a dermatologic consultation for lesions which had appeared after 3 months of local treatment with clobethasole propionate. The histological analysis confirmed the diagnosis of dyshidrotic eczema and the microbiological smears demonstrated a significant infection with . The risk of developing corticosteroids' side-effects depends on the potency of the product, extended period of use and the volume of product applied. Read More

Dyshidrotic Eczema and Its Relationship to Metal Allergy.

Authors:
Aya Nishizawa

Curr Probl Dermatol 2016 30;51:80-5. Epub 2016 Aug 30.

Department of Dermatology, National Defense Medical College, Tokorozawa, Japan.

Dyshidrotic eczema, also known as dyshidrotic dermatitis or pompholyx, is characterized by pruritic, small tense vesicles mainly on the palmoplantar region and lateral and ventral surfaces of the fingers. While its etiology appears to be related to sweating, as dyshidrotic eczema often occurs in an individual with hyperhidrosis, and the spring allergy season, histologic examination shows an eczematous reaction around the sweat ducts which is not associated with abnormalities of the sweat ducts. More recently, the nomenclature of 'acute and recurrent vesicular hand dermatitis' has been proposed to reflect clinical features of dyshidrotic eczema. Read More

Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine of Sensory and Motor Organs, Faculty of Medicine, Tottori University, Yonago, Japan.

Background: Mechanic's hands are a well-known symptom often associated with dermatomyositis and are similar to hand eczema clinically. Histopathology of them usually shows hyperkeratosis, focal parakeratosis, psoriasiform acanthosis, basal vacuolar changes and necrotic keratinocytes in the epidermis and upper dermal mucin deposition. However, there have been few comparative histopathologic evaluations of mechanic's hands and palmoplantar eczema. Read More

Pompholyx remains a chronic skin affliction without a compelling pathophysiological explanation. The disease is characterized by the sudden onset of vesicles exclusively in the palms and soles which generally resolves. However, the disease may progress and the vesicles may expand and fuse; with chronicity there is deep fissuring. Read More

Pompholyx is a common eruption of small vesicles on the palms, soles, and/or lateral aspects of the fingers. It has a multifactorial etiology, including genetic determinants, allergy to metals, and id reaction; rarely it is a drug-related side effect. We report a paediatric case of pompholyx of the hands related to the intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy for Clinically Isolated Syndrome (CIS). Read More

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2013 Dec 26;27(12):1559-65. Epub 2013 Jun 26.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology Research Institute, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Both palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP) and pompholyx are clinically characterized by acute eruptions of vesicles or pustules on the palms or soles.

Objectives: This study aims to compare the expression of certain inflammatory mediator genes and proteins between patients with PPP and pompholyx using skin tissue samples.

Methods: Skin biopsies obtained from lesional skin from patients with PPP (n = 7) and pompholyx (n = 5) were analysed by quantitative RT-PCR to measure the mRNA levels of nine genes, including IL-4, IL-8, IL-9, IL-17, IL-22, IFN-γ, CCL-20, granzyme and perforin. Read More

Retrospective long-term follow-up in patients with chronic palmoplantar dermatoses after good response to bath PUVA therapy.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2012 Nov 28;10(11):814-8. Epub 2012 Jun 28.

Research Unit for Photodermatology, Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Medical University of Graz, Austria.

Background: Numerous studies have confirmed the short-term effectiveness of 8-methoxypsoralen bath PUVA therapy in patients with chronic palmoplantar dermatoses; however, little is known about long-term results.

Patients And Methods: In this retrospective study we examined the long-term results in 79 patients (mean age: 48 years) with chronic palmoplantar dermatoses who were treated with bath PUVA three times a week over an 8-year period. A good clinical response (a reduction of more than 50% of the skin lesions) occurred after a mean of 23 treatments and a mean cumulative UVA dose of 39 J/cm(2) in 51 patients (65%). Read More
