CONCLUSIONS: Low-dose, HTSEBT provides good palliation in patients with CTCL with a satisfactory response and toxicity profile. HTSEBT allows therapy to be completed in far fewer treatments. Low-dose HTSEBT is an appropriate treatment option for patients unable to come for daily treatment. HTSEBT provides a way to decrease exposure to other patients and staff during public health emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
CONCLUSION: The COVID-19-associated perniosis represents an exaggerated immune reaction to a virus with significant type-I interferon signaling important to SARS-CoV-2 eradication and has implications in regards to a more generalized highly-inflammatory response. We hypothesize that in the thrombotic retiform purpura of critically ill patients with COVID-19, the vascular thrombosis in the skin and other organ systems is associated with a minimal interferon response allowing excessive viral...
The COVID-19 pandemic has left dermatology practice in disarray globally. Patient-facing services have been compromised for patients and clinicians alike. The implications of such disruption for dermatology undergraduate education are unknown. Numerous undergraduate programmes have faced disruption, with teaching postponed or featuring reformatted, ad-hoc delivery. Following the pandemic, it is anticipated UK medical education will face a 'new normal', with a much greater emphasis on...
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease associated with comorbidities known to increase risk of severe COVID-19, such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity.^(1,2) Use of systemic therapies may increase a patient's risk of infections.³ Our study aims to evaluate the association of psoriasis systemic therapy and COVID outcomes.
The negative outcomes of COVID-19 diseases respiratory distress (ARDS) and the damage to other organs are secondary to a "cytokine storm" and to the attendant oxidative stress. Active hydroxyl-forms of vitamin D are anti-inflammatory, induce anti-oxidative responses, and stimulate innate immunity against infectious agents. These properties are shared by calcitriol and the CYP11A1-generated non-calcemic hydroxyderivatives. They inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, downregulate...
Dermatologists performing surgical procedures face occupational and health hazards when exposed to surgical plume released during electrosurgical and ablative laser procedures. These hazardous fumes have toxic, infectious and carcinogenic effects. Understanding this risk is of particular importance during the COVID-19 pandemic as the understanding of the transmissibility and infectious nature of the virus is still evolving rapidly. In this article, we present the hazards from laser and surgical...
Patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (AD) or psoriasis often require systemic immunomodulatory therapy. The uncertainty of the potential of these therapies to increase the risk of more serious illness due to Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may have caused anxiety and led to treatment discontinuation. Therefore, we conducted an anonymous questionnaire on concerns of COVID-19 in patients with AD or psoriasis treated with systemic immunomodulatory therapy.
Poison ivy (Toxicodendron radicans) is best known for causing exasperating allergenic delayed-contact dermatitis symptoms that last for weeks on persons who have contacted the plant. Urushiols are alkylcatechols produced by poison ivy responsible for causing this dermatitis. While urushiol chemical structures are well known, the metabolic intermediates and genes responsible for their biosynthesis have not been experimentally validated. A molecular genetic characterization of urushiol...
Paraneoplastic syndromes exist for a number of malignancies and their presentations are diverse. Some of them are self-limited, while others can be life-threatening but regardless of the outcome, understanding the presentation is vital to picking up on the diagnosis for further treatment. The case that is presented here is a rare paraneoplastic skin process called Bazex syndrome that was associated with pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are members of the superfamily of neurotransmitter-gated ion channels. The natural ligand for nAChRs is the endogenous neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Among the nAChRs is the α7nAChR. It is not only expressed by neural tissues but also in the skin. A number of different resident cutaneous cell types including epidermal keratinocytes, sebocytes and dermal fibroblasts express functional α7nAChR. Moreover, cells of the immune system such as lymphocytes,...
Dermatitis artefacta is a rare psychological disorder in which patients self-inflict cutaneous lesions to satisfy an emotional need. Due to the nature of this disease, patients can present with a wide array of sometimes very severe skin lesions. Here, we describe a case of dermatitis artefacta initially misdiagnosed as pyoderma gangrenosum and treated as such for eight years. The patient reported a long history of cutaneous ulcers on her extremities and trunk, with resultant extensive scarring....

Long-term survival of cancer patients has risen dramatically during the last few decades. Despite this remarkable success, the same treatments that have enabled cure or remission often secondarily affect the skin, hair, and nails. Conditions including scarring, striae distensae, persistent alopecia, pigmentary changes, nail alterations, chronic radiation dermatitis, and radiation fibrosis have been associated with anxiety, depression, decreased quality of life, and impaired function. These...
Atopic dermatitis (AD) has only recently been recognized as a major public health issue in sub-Saharan Africa (sSA) (1, 2). In contrast to Afro-American or South African AD patients, data on clinical and immune-related features on sSA AD patients are scarce (1-3). In this study, we wanted to explore immune phenotypes of SsA vs. central European (CE) AD patients and put them into context to environmental influences by assessing sensitization patterns.The study was approved by the local Ethics...
CONCLUSION: Our findings suggest that IP(3)R1/TRPC channel-mediated Ca^(2+) signals elicited by IL-6 in astrocytes are necessary for persistent STAT3 activation, LCN2 expression and chronic itch, and may also provide new targets for therapeutic intervention.
