Skin grafts are frequently used for the reconstruction of skin defects, and optimal stabilization of the graft is essential for successful reconstruction. Although the tie-over technique has been widely used as a standard method in Japan, we sometimes encounter cases with significant graft loss due to suboptimal stabilization of the graft. Reported risk factors for increased graft loss include the following: defects of a large size, with muscle exposure, and located in the trunk and extremities. Recent studies have demonstrated the usefulness of negative-pressure closure (NPC) for the stabilization of skin grafts due to the uniform pressure it provides across the graft...

The clinical features of bullous pemphigoid are extremely polymorphous. Several atypical forms of bullous pemphigoid have been described, and the diagnosis critically relies on immunopathological findings. We describe three bullous pemphigoid patients characterized by palmoplantar keratoderma, diffused hyperkeratotic cutaneous lesions and extremely high levels of immunoglobulin E serum. The diagnosis of bullous pemphigoid should be taken into account in patients presenting diffused hyperkeratotic cutaneous lesions and palmoplantar keratoderma, even in the absence of blisters...

Interleukin (IL)-34 is a hematopoietic cytokine promoting proliferation and differentiation of macrophages. Because abnormal activation of macrophages is involved in the development of systemic sclerosis (SSc), we investigated serum IL-34 levels in patients with SSc. Serum IL-34 levels were significantly increased in diffuse cutaneous SSc compared with limited cutaneous SSc and healthy controls, while there were no significant differences between limited cutaneous SSc and healthy controls. In addition, SSc patients with increased serum IL-34 levels more often had interstitial lung disease (ILD) than those with normal levels...

The clinical features of urticaria and anaphylaxis are similar, and they share common causal immune-mediated pathways. We aimed to investigate the risk of anaphylaxis among patients with urticaria. A 12-year population-based retrospective cohort study was conducted. Investigated subjects were identified from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database by the International Classification of Disease, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification. We included 126 031 subjects with newly diagnosed urticaria and 252 062 matched controls between 2000 and 2013...

Treatment with tumor necrosis factor-α inhibitors has been reported to cause weight gain in patients with psoriasis; however, limited information is available in terms of the effects of interleukin (IL)-23 and IL-17A inhibitors on bodyweight (BW) in patients with psoriasis. This study aimed to investigate the effects of infliximab, ustekinumab and secukinumab on BW and body mass index (BMI) in patients with psoriasis. We retrospectively examined changes in BW and BMI among patients treated with these biologics at our hospital...

Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on chronic hemodialysis (HD) experience chronic inflammation and immune dysregulation; whether these affect the development of chronic inflammatory disease such as psoriasis is unknown. We aimed to investigate the impact of ESRD on the development of psoriasis. We performed a retrospective cohort study using records between 1999 and 2013 from Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database. Among 74 916 patients with ESRD on chronic HD and the control group comprising 74 916 sex and age group-matched patients, 165 and 81 incident psoriasis developed after a mean follow up of 2...

Vulvar lichen sclerosus (VLS) is an uncommon, chronic inflammatory skin disease lacking clinical data of large sample size in China. This study was intended to provide missing data on this condition through investigating the clinical characteristics of Chinese VLS patients. The medical records of 129 VLS patients from our vulvar outpatient clinic were analyzed with SPSS version 18.0 software. The age of onset followed a normal distribution, with the peak at 25-30 years. Of all cases, the incidence rate during the postmenopausal period was 14...

Intravenous corticosteroid pulse therapy (pulse therapy) has been reported to be effective for rapidly progressive alopecia areata (RP-AA). Mostly, a single 3-day administration of corticosteroid (methylprednisolone 500 mg/day) has been performed in Japan; however, to what extent additional administrations improve the outcome has not been fully elucidated. To assess the advantage of repeating the pulse therapy to RP-AA cases refractory to the initial intervention, retrospective clinicopathological analysis was performed...

The goal of our study was to investigate the incidence of Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), the frequency of SJS diagnosis, and the association between SJS and prior use of allopurinol, carbamazepine or phenytoin. This case-control study utilized data from the National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD) of Taiwan. Controls visited the emergency department of the same hospital for trauma or fractures (excluding burns) and used allopurinol, carbamazepine or phenytoin during the past 3 months. We determined whether patients were prescribed a combination of drugs in addition to allopurinol, carbamazepine or phenytoin within the last 3 months...

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), caused by germ line mutations of the NF1 tumor-suppressor gene, is one of the most common autosomal dominant disorders. Here, we reported a NF1 patient with the mutation NF1 c.4367+1G>C. This sequence change locates at the first nucleotide of NF1 intron 32 within the consensus splice site. Compared with NF1 c.4367G>C predicted to potentially damage the wild-type donor site at c.4367, the NF1 c.4367+1G>C potentially abolishes this wild-type donor site by in silico analysis...

The onset of psoriasis is often seen in HIV infection, called HIV-associated psoriasis. Although HIV-associated psoriasis is usually refractory, there are some cases relieved only by antiretroviral therapy. In those cases, the pathogenesis may be formed differently from psoriasis vulgaris. We present the case of a 42-year-old Japanese man with HIV-associated psoriasis. The patient developed a systemic scaly eruption, especially on the soles. Histopathological examination showed typical psoriatic findings and plasma cell infiltration into the dermis...
