Background: Lichen planopilaris (LPP) is a rare, cicatricial, lymphocyte-mediated alopecia that is thought to have an autoimmune pathogenesis and possibly related to other autoimmune diseases. However, data are limited and studies that examine comorbid conditions are lacking. Objectives: We sought to determine the prevalence of systemic comorbid conditions, nutritional deficiencies, psychological problems, and skin cancers in patients with LPP. Methods: We identified 334 patients with LPP who were seen in the Department of Dermatology at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation between 2000 and 2016...

Acne is a common skin disease that predominantly affects teenagers and young adults. Systemic antibiotic therapy, including tetracyclines, macrolides, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, is indicated in moderate-to-severe inflammatory disease. However, in certain cases, these antibiotics and other commonly prescribed treatments including oral contraceptives, spironolactone, and isotretinoin may be prohibited, especially in cases of pregnancy and drug intolerance. In this retrospective study, we assessed the safety and efficacy of systemic amoxicillin, which has a favorable tolerability profile and compatibility with pregnancy in the treatment of inflammatory acne...

The use of high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is an accepted therapy for patients with refractory dermatomyositis. Cases of eczematous reactions to IVIG have been reported in the literature, but to our knowledge, none in patients being treated for dermatomyositis. We report on the cases of two female patients with refractory dermatomyositis who developed pruritic, scaly pink plaques after receiving high-dose IVIG. This diffuse eczematous skin reaction to high-dose IVIG is a rare adverse event that most often occurs days after administration of therapy...

Pemphigoid gestationis, which is also known as herpes gestationis, is a rare, pregnancy-associated, autoimmune bullous disease. Treatment depends on the severity of the disease for each patient and the safety and use of these drugs during pregnancy and breastfeeding must be taken into consideration to guide their use. We describe the therapeutic response of two cases of pemphigoid gestationis that did not respond to conventional immunosuppressive therapy or adverse effects limited their use. Both patients eventually received treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin therapy, which resulted in clinical remission...

The interplay between immune dysfunction and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is complex. Reports of autoimmune disorders including autoimmune bullous disorders (AIBDs) have been increasing in prevalence in the HIV population since the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy in 1995. We offer a literature review of clinical experiences in various AIBDs with particular emphasis on therapeutic management as well as a brief overview of the mechanisms that explain the relationship between AIBD and HIV...

Background: Cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) is a rare dermatologic autoimmune disease marked by photosensitive lesions that can vary in appearance depending on the subtype. The extent to which CLE affects a patient's quality of life (QoL) has not been fully characterized. Focus groups were conducted to explore patients' perspectives of how CLE has affected their lives and to understand the unmet needs in regards to CLE treatment and care. Methods: This qualitative study involved three focus groups with a total of 19 patients with CLE...

Background: As future physicians, medical students will play an important role in the prevention of skin cancers by becoming directly involved in skin cancer prevention education and counseling patients about the hazards of ultraviolet light. Objective: We assessed the skin cancer-related knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, and prevention practices reported in previous studies of medical students. Methods: The search for relevant articles was performed in four electronic databases: PubMed (Medline), Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health, ERIC, and PsycINFO...

REVIEW
Esther Q Wang, M Adriana Castrillón Velásquez, Dedee F Murrell
This review examines the work productivity in patients with autoimmune blistering diseases (AIBDs). Work productivity and employment are important aspects of a patient's life, which can be affected by diseases. The Work Productivity and Activity Impairment Questionnaire (WPAIQ) is a validated instrument that can measure work productivity and assess the impact of disease on patients' work lives. There is currently a paucity of research that investigates the reason why AIBDs cause such a large impact on work productivity and whether AIBDs affect employment status...

Introduction: The skin is important for the perception of health and beauty. Knowledge of the physiological, chemical, and biophysical differences between the skin of male and female patients helps dermatologists develop a proper approach not only for the management of skin diseases but also to properly take care of cosmetic issues. The influence of genetic and environmental factors on skin characteristics is also critical to consider. Methods: A literature search of PubMed and Google was conducted to compare the biophysical and biomechanical properties of the skin of male and female patients using the keywords "skin", "hydration", "water loss", "sebum", "circulation", "color", "thickness", "elasticity", "pH", "friction", "wrinkle", "sex", "male", and "female"...

Melanoma incidence and mortality are on the rise and although most new cases of melanoma are thin, a significant percentage of these patients still experience disease progression. The American Joint Committee on Cancer publishes staging criteria for melanoma, which were recently updated to the 8th edition. The most significant revision from the 7th edition affects the T1b classification, which now includes melanomas with a Breslow depth of 0.8 mm to 1.0 mm. The second major revision eliminates mitoses as a criterion to upstage a thin melanoma to T1b...

Objective: Although dermatologists strive to provide patient education on sun protection and skin cancer, approximately 90% of Americans have limited health literacy skills. Little has been written about the means to best teach all levels of learners to recognize common benign and malignant skin lesions. Earlier work found that with advancing age, adults were less able to identify concerning lesions, thus underscoring the need for accessible education. Methods: We showed subjects a brief video (7th grade level) about common cutaneous growths, reducing the risk of skin cancer, and the importance of early detection...

Background: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, recurrent, debilitating follicular disease. The effect of HS on physical and psychological aspects of sexual function is not well understood. Objective: The objective of this study is to investigate the contribution of sexual dysfunction to the quality of life (QoL) of patients with HS and to investigate the extent to which sexual health predicts the QoL in these patients. Methods: This is an observational cross-sectional study of 50 patients with HS and 50 healthy volunteers who completed questionnaires to measure QoL and sexual functioning using four validated tools...

Managing pregnant patients with a history of melanoma or with a melanoma diagnosis can be daunting and confusing for dermatologists. We present three clinical scenarios that raise questions about the safety of pregnancy in patients with a history of melanoma, skin biopsies during pregnancy, and excisions and sentinel lymph node biopsies during pregnancy. Our recommendations incorporate the most up-to-date clinical data to help guide clinicians when faced with pigmented lesions and melanoma in a pregnant patient...

Pemphigus is a rare autoimmune disease during pregnancy. Among the different pemphigus types, pemphigus foliaceus (PF) is even rarer than pemphigus vulgaris. We present a case of PF in a 36-year-old female patient who presented with PF onset during pregnancy in the form of a disseminated, erythematosquamous rash. A diagnosis was made on the basis of histologic, immunofluorescence, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay results. A complete remission was recorded a month after steroid treatment initiation. The patient delivered a premature (33 weeks) but otherwise healthy baby girl...

The immunoassays that are available for the serological diagnosis of the more common subtypes of autoimmune blistering diseases such as pemphigus vulgaris (PV) and pemphigus foliaceus (PF) include enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) testing to specific antigens desmoglein (Dsg)1 and Dsg3, direct immunofluorescence (DIF), indirect immunofluorescence (IIF), and immunoblotting. A review of the literature on the biochip assay was conducted. Six studies investigated the validity of a new biochip, mosaic-based, IIF test in patients with pemphigus and demonstrated its relatively high sensitivity and specificity (Dsg3: 97...
