Seda Purnak, Jose Azar, Lawrence Aaron Mark
Several chemotherapy agents have shown efficacy in the treatment of mycosis fungoides (MF). In the literature, there is limited data on the use of single agent etoposide for MF. We aimed to retrospectively review our experience with single agent etoposide in the treatment of advanced-stage or refractory early-stage MF with focus on analyzing its efficacy and safety. We included 13 MF patients who were treated with single agent etoposide. Patients were identified through the Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma Database of Indiana University that involves patients treated from 2006 to 2016...

This Italian multicenter retrospective study compared the drug survival and efficacy of different anti-TNF agents in psoriasis (PsO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) patients. A database of PsO/PsA patients treated with adalimumab, etanercept, and infliximab from May 2013 to May 2014 was analyzed. PASI 75, 90, and 100 was calculated at each time point to evaluate efficacy. Drug survival rate and probability of maintaining PASI response were evaluated. The impact of dependent variables on probability of PASI 75 loss was evaluated by logistic regression...

Giulia Odorici, Andrea Conti
Patients overweight or obese have more severe psoriasis than normal weight patients. Sometimes the excessive weight is related to a lack of efficacy of systemic treatment. We report a case of a psoriatic patient that experienced a dramatic improvement of psoriasis after weight loss surgery by gastric bandage. The great weight loss was accompanied by an effectiveness gain of response to infliximab. The mechanism responsible for this association is not certain, but it is probably multifactorial, involving genetic, environmental and immune-mediated factors...

Alopecia areata (AA) is an autoimmune disease characterized by non-cicatricial hair loss. No definitive therapy currently exists for AA. To compared the efficacy and safety of the mometasone furoate 0.1% cream alone with the mometasone furoate 0.1% cream plus adapalene 0.1% gel in treatment of AA. Twenty patients with AA and with mean age of 27.4 ± 9.2 years were enrolled. Patches with a diameter of < 5 cm were treated with mometasone furate 0.1% cream (M), and patches with a diameter of ≥5 cm were treated with mometasone furate 0...

Psoriasis affects 0.5-2% of children. Severe forms required use of systemic treatments. Few studies are published on efficiency and tolerance of systemic treatments in children. We conducted a survey in France to better understand management of children with psoriasis. A survey on childhood psoriasis management was sent by e-mail to GPs, pediatricians, and dermatologists. The survey included 384 physicians. Respectively 53.1%, 49.8%, and 83.3% of GPs, pediatricians, and dermatologists declare to have seen at least one child with psoriasis during the 3 previous months...

Acne vulgaris is a chronic disease of the pilosebaceous units presenting as inflammatory or noninflammatory lesions in individuals of all ages. The current standard of treatment includes topical formulations in the forms of washes, gels, lotions, and creams such as antibiotics, antibacterial agents, retinoids, and comedolytics. Additionally, systemic treatments are available for more severe or resistant forms of acne. Nevertheless, these treatments have shown to induce a wide array of adverse effects, including dryness, peeling, erythema, and even fetal defects and embolic events...

The incidence of non dermatophytic mould (NDM) onychomycosis (OM) has been steadily increasing Fusarium spp is the most common cause of NDM OM in most geographical locations. Fusarium spp and other NDMs are largely resistant to commonly used anti-fungals. The successful use of laser and light based devices has been demonstrated in dermatophytic OM, but there is no previous report of their successful use in any NDM OM. We describe a patient with OM caused by Fusarium solani spp, who was clinically (with a normal appearing nail) and mycologically (with negative microscopy and culture on repeated samples) cured of her infection following treatment with 2 sessions of Qs NdYAG (532nm and 1064nm) given 1 month apart...

Approximately 40% of women experience excessive hair shedding during styling (e.g., hair brushing). Previously, we demonstrated that topically applied phenylephrine, a potent α1 adrenergic receptor agonist, can be used to contract the arrector pili muscle of the follicular unit; thus, increasing the force required to pluck hair and reducing shedding during brushing. While demonstrating efficacy, phenylephrine has several drawbacks when applied to the scalp, including the possibility cardiovascular events. We hypothesized that a high concentration of a weak α1 agonist would allow for: (a) rapid penetration through the stratum corneum eliciting a quick response; (b) a low probability of cardiac adverse events owing to the low receptor binding affinity; and (c) an efficacy of the weak α1 agonist similar to that of phenylephrine at the local site of application...

Electrical burns are group of traumatic injuries with a mortality rate of 3-15%. High-voltage induced extensive electric burns are rarely seen in the cranial area, compared to upper and lower limbs, but extremely difficult for treatment, due to the limited flexibility in this area. The spectrum of therapeutic interventions in electrical burns in general, evolving initial necrectomy, decompression, and aggressive debridement with early skin coverage is usually not enough in cases of extensive cranial defects...

Topical corticosteroids are considered to be the most effective treatment for oral lichen planus (OLP). Methotrexate has been found to be effective in extensive cutaneous lichen planus. The objectives of the study were to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of topical triamcinolone 0.1% oral paste, oral methotrexate and a combination of these in symptomatic moderate-to- severe OLP. Forty-five patients were recruited and were allocated to three treatment arms with 15 patients in each treatment arm. They were treated for a period of 16 weeks or until complete clinical remission, whichever was earlier...

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the skin which can occur at any age-group. Psoriasis in childhood is not uncommon and has genetic susceptibility but usually, an environmental trigger such as infection is thought to initiate the disease process. Pediatric psoriasis has profound effects on both physical and psychosocial health of the patient. Treatment of mild psoriasis can be done with topical therapies but those which do not respond to topical therapies can be treated with phototherapy and systemic therapies...
