Erythema multiforme (EM) is an acute and usually self-limited immune-mediated mucocutaneous disorder that is a hypersensitivity reaction to drugs, infections, and vaccines. Clinically, it is characterized by maculopapular, target-like lesions symmetrically distributed on the extremities (minor form) or additionally affecting one or more mucous membranes and causing epidermal detachment involving < 10% of the total body surface area (major form). We report a novel association between pneumococcal vaccination and the development of EM in a 2...

A sporadic association between hidradenitis suppurativa and other diseases is reported in the literature, but few authors have described the association with Crohn's disease. Adalimumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody targeted at tumor necrosis factor alpha approved for the treatment of Crohn's disease and, recently, for active moderate to severe hidradenitis suppurativa in adult patients that do not respond adequately to systemic conventional treatment. We report an unusual case of a paradoxical effect of adalimumab in the onset of hidradenitis suppurativa in a 40-year-old woman during the treatment of Crohn's disease...

Lip carcinoma is a common cancer of the head and neck region. It more often affects the lower lip (> 90%), and squamous cell carcinoma represents 95% of the cases. The authors present a reconstruction of the lower lip combining two classical flaps: the Karapandzic and Bernard-Burrow-Webster flap. The surgical technique is discussed.

INTRODUCTION: Pilonidal sinus disease can be treated with various surgical techniques. However, invasive surgical techniques harbor the risk of wound infection and require a long postoperative wound healing period. The treatment of pilonidal sinus disease with crystallized phenol is minimally invasive with a short postoperative recovery period. This article explains how to treat pilonidal sinus disease with crystallized phenol using a quick and easy three-step technique. METHODS: Between August 2014 and January 2016, 43 male and 7 female patients with pilonidal sinus disease were treated with crystallized phenol...

INTRODUCTION: Data on the effectiveness of biologics in the treatment of nail and scalp psoriasis (PSO) in a routine clinical setting are scarce. The aim of this study was therefore to evaluate the effectiveness of adalimumab in the treatment of nail and scalp psoriatic lesions in routine dermatologic practice. METHODS: Five hundred one patients were analyzed in this observational study; 157 patients had nail involvement (nail PSO set; NPS) and 404 had scalp involvement (scalp PSO set; SPS)...

INTRODUCTION: We evaluated the effectiveness of concomitant treatment with methotrexate (MTX) plus micronutrients in comparison with monotherapy with MTX only in psoriasis patients. Plasma levels of interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β) and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) were also measured and their association with clinical severity was evaluated. METHODS: Thirty psoriasis patients 20 to 50 years old with a PASI score > 10 were divided randomly into two groups. Both groups were given oral methotrexate (0...

In December 2016, Elsevier launched a new tool that helps measure the citation impact of academic journals, called the CiteScore index. The CiteScore index values for 2015 confirmed the status of Acta Dermatovenerologica Alpina, Pannonica et Adriatica (Acta Dermatovenerol APA) as the leading journal in dermatology and sexually transmitted infections in the region. Sixty-five articles published in Acta Dermatovenerol APA from 2012 to 2014 received a total of 77 citations in 2015, resulting in a CiteScore index value of 1...

Miguel Costa-Silva, Ana Pedrosa, Filomena Azevedo, Alberto Mota
In 2000, Galaria et al. proposed the designation neutrophilic dermatosis of the dorsal hands (NDDH). The authors describe a case of NDDH with predominant involvement of the palmar aspect of the hands in a patient suffering from lung cancer, a possible paraneoplastic manifestation. Therefore, the term NDDH is not accurate because palmar manifestations of this dermatosis are also possible.

Erythema exsudativum multiforme is an immunologically mediated skin condition caused by viruses, bacteria, food, and drugs. There are different forms, and depending on the severity of the disease there is a major and minor form. Whereas the minor form passes without consequences, the major form and Stevens-Johnson syndrome affect the mucosa and may result in death. The disease affects all age groups but is more often observed in young individuals. Typical signs of the disease are skin lesions termed herpes iris...

Methotrexate-induced accelerated nodulosis (MIAN) is not an uncommon adverse effect associated with the use of the methotrexate in rheumatoid arthritis. Limited case reports describe panniculitis as a pathological finding in this setting. A 31-year-old female with seropositive rheumatoid arthritis on methotrexate therapy presented with a 2-week history of sudden onset of painful infiltrated subcutaneous nodules on both forearms. Based on clinical and histological findings, a diagnosis of methotrexate-induced panniculitis was made...

Erythema dyschromicum perstans is a rare, chronic, pigmentary disorder with unknown etiology. It clinically presents with oval to round, gray, blue, or brown macules of various sizes. The etiology remains unknown; however, cobalt allergy, radio contrast media, intestinal parasites, human immunodeficiency virus, and hypothyroidism have been proposed as causative factors. In addition, vitiligo is characterized by depigmented macules and patches that are widely andsymmetrically distributed. It has been suggested that autoimmune mechanisms play an important role in the etiopathogenesis of vitiligo...

Beta-hemolytic streptococci (BHS) are the most common causative agents of perianal streptococcal dermatitis (PSD). This study evaluates the distribution of BHS isolates in perianal bacterial cultures. We retrospectively reviewed microbiological results for perianal BHS that were isolated in our laboratory between 2006 and 2015. We identified a total of 105 BHS isolates from rectal swabs and swabs of clinically intact perianal skin. The majority of BHS were of group A (GABHS) (73/105; 69.5%), followed by group B BHS (GBBHS) (27/105; 25...

INTRODUCTION: The present study describes the development and evaluation of the first multiplex type-specific quantitative real-time PCR (RT-PCR), enabling simple, rapid, sensitive, and specific concurrent detection and differentiation of human papillomavirus (HPV) types HPV2, 27, and 57 in a single PCR reaction. RESULTS: The HPV2/27/57 multiplex RT-PCR with a dynamic range of seven orders of magnitude (discriminating 10 to 108 viral genome equivalents/reaction) has an analytical sensitivity of at least 10 viral copies of each targeted HPV type/reaction, and no cross-reactivities were observed among the included targets...

A small proportion of HIV-infected patients rapidly progress to AIDS; indeed, some individuals have been known to progress to AIDS within a year after primary infection. Pneumonia caused by Pneumocystis jirovecii (PCP) is the most frequent AIDS-defining illness. However, PCP can also rarely occur during primary HIV infection as a result of the severe immunosuppression that may accompany the early stage of HIV infection. Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) comprises two distinct syndromes: paradoxical IRIS and unmasking IRIS...

Pyoderma gangrenosum is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by painful cutaneous ulcers. The etiology remains unknown; however, pyoderma gangrenousm can be triggered by surgery. Here we report the case of a 34-year-old Caucasian female that developed pyoderma gangrenosum following deep inferior epigastric perforator flap breast reconstruction. The patient was successfully treated with systemic immunosuppressive therapy and primary closure.

INTRODUCTION: Of the 350 million individuals chronically infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV) worldwide, approximately 15 to 20 million have been exposed to hepatitis D virus (HDV). This study determined for the first time the HDV prevalence in Slovenian patients with chronic HBV infection. In addition, a literature search was performed to identify all HDV prevalence studies from European countries. METHODS: A total of 1,305 HBsAg-positive serum samples, obtained from the same number of patients, were randomly selected from 2,337 patients referred to the Slovenian national reference laboratory for viral hepatitis between 1998 and 2015...
