COVID-19 and Skin – Pubmed search results

We described a case of exuberant cutaneous small-vessel vasculitis in a 27-year-old male with mild CoVID-19 in Brazil. The patient presented painful purpuric papules and vesicobullous lesions with hemorrhagic content located in the larger amount in the lower limbs and, to a lesser extent in the region of the back and upper limbs, saving palms and soles of the feet. Influenza-like syndrome with anosmia and ageusia was reported seven days before the skin lesions. A real-time reverse transcription...
The recent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has created a quandary for the physician in terms of evaluating and treating cutaneous skin cancers, particularly melanomas. At the onset of the pandemic, many planned medical and surgical visits for skin cancers were postponed. Physicians and patients have had to balance the risk of exposure to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) with that of worsening morbidity and mortality due to delays in skin cancer...
Despite the publication of articles about dermato-pathology of COVID-related skin lesions(1), only a few among these investigate patients with SARS-CoV-2 and other viral co-infections showing cutaneous manifestations. According to the growing attention dedicated by your journal to the topic of novel human coronavirus SARS-Cov-2, we decided to share the rather interesting case of a woman with previous history of Kaposi sarcoma without active skin lesions, who was recently hospitalized for...
Recent reports across the world indicate a tremendous increase in smartphone usage during the COVID-19 pandemic. This increased use is understandable given the unique international strategies put in place to reduce viral transmission, such as "lockdown" and "work from home". People are keeping themselves busy by browsing the Internet, using social media, watching tele-programs, playing games, chatting with friends and/or family, shopping online, etc With increased usage of smartphones, people...
As COVID-19 vaccinations begin, dermatologists must be aware of the cutaneous adverse events reported in the clinical trials, including injection site and hypersensitivity reactions, and emerging evidence of dermal filler injection reactions following vaccination. The filler reaction may represent development of a delayed-type hypersensitivity in the setting of another immunologic trigger, i.e. the vaccine. Upon literature review of similar reactions, their pathophysiology and management, we...
CONCLUSIONS: The responses from our study seem to suggest that while the attitudes toward telemedicine are positive, practicing physicians are concerned about a perceived lack of clarity regarding related legal frameworks and barriers such as technological issues, cultural factors, and diagnostic concordance.
To-date, COVID-19 pandemic affected >85 million persons worldwide with 14% severe and 5% critical, and a general population case-fatality rate of 1%. Age is the main risk factor for severe disease and death¹ making the long-term-care facilities (LTCFs) residents particularly vulnerable.² COVID-19 therapeutic agents remain sparce and ivermectin, an antiparasitic showed anti-SARS-CoV-2 activity in vitro.³ Moxidectin, another macrocyclic lactone, with a longer plasma half-life, could be considered...
Skin barrier dysfunction caused by endogenous or exogenous factors can lead to various disorders such as xerosis cutis, ichthyoses, and atopic dermatitis. Filaggrin is a pivotal structural protein of the stratum corneum (SC) and provides natural moisturizing factors that play a role in skin barrier functions. Filaggrin aggregates keratin filaments, resulting in the formation of a keratin network, which binds cornified envelopes and collapse keratinocytes to flattened corneocytes. This complex...
Occupational hand eczema (HE) has continuously been the most frequently recognised occupational disease, comprising > 95% of all recognised occupational skin diseases. Irritant contact dermatitis constitutes > 70%, where wet work is the main eliciting factor. Knowledge on the dose-response relationship between wet work and HE is pivotal concerning preventive interventions, job counselling and medico-legal regulations, which is summarised in this review. New findings indicate a significant risk...
Sometimes allergic reactions caused by various food allergens often hidden in the composition of medications can mistakenly be diagnosed as drug allergies. Such reactions can especially be unexpected if antihistamines-virtually designed to treat allergy symptoms, are imitated. We present the case of a 37-year-old female patient with cutaneous allergic reaction initially diagnosed as drug allergy to desloratadine/aerius, a desloratadine-containing antihistamine medication. The diagnostic search...
The prevalence of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) has increased since the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic started. This study was aimed to describe clinical manifestation and outcomes of MIS-C associated with COVID-19. This systematic review and meta-analysis were conducted on all available literature until July 3rd, 2020. The screening was done by using the following keywords: ("novel coronavirus" Or COVID-19 or severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2...
Mycobacterium paratuberculosis causes Johne's disease in cattle, a chronic granulomatous enteritis for which a killed vaccine is commercially available. We present a case of a veterinarian who had an unintended needle-stick with injection of vaccine material. He developed a granulomatous dermatitis with acid-fast bacilli identified on pathology of affected tissue. It is important for health-care providers who care for patients at risk for unintended vaccine exposure to be aware of the possible...
CONCLUSIONS: Adults with moderate-to-severe AD starting/switching systemic treatment enrolled in EUROSTAD have a high burden of longstanding disease despite continuous use of topical drugs, emollients, and systemic therapies.
Allergic contact dermatitis, a Type IV delayed hypersensitivity reaction, can result in dermatologic signs/symptoms for patients/workers. The likelihood of this phenomenon has been estimated/predicted for numerous chemicals/drugs by animal model and human patch testing protocols developed over the last century. Karl Landsteiner initiated testing with guinea pig studies; further studies based on his initial concept were in continual development. John Draize extended Landsteiner's guinea pig...
