BACKGROUND: Skin cancer occurs frequently in organ transplant patients as a result of induced immunosuppression. Most cases involve carcinomas or B-cell lymphomas induced by the Epstein Barr virus (EBV). Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas remain rare. We report a case of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma of the mycosis fungoides type in a heart transplant recipient. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 68-year-old man who had received a heart transplant 21years earlier and was being treated with tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil and prednisolone had been presenting a psoriasiform rash on his trunk, limbs and head for 4years...

The Australasian Psoriasis Collaboration has reviewed the evidence for managing moderate to severe psoriasis in those who are pregnant or are breast-feeding, or planning a family. The severity of the psoriasis, associated comorbidities and specific anti-psoriasis treatment, along with other exposures, can have a deleterious effect on pregnancy outcomes. Psoriasis itself increases the risk of preterm and low birthweight babies, along with spontaneous and induced abortions, but no specific birth defects have been otherwise demonstrated...

Lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) is a benign papulonodular skin eruption with histologic features of malignant lymphoma. A new variant of LyP which was termed "type E" was recently described with similar clinical and histological features to angiocentric and angiodestructive T-cell lymphoma. LyP type E is characterized with recurrent papulonodular lesions which rapidly turn into hemorrhagic necrotic ulcers and spontaneous regression by leaving a scar. None of the available treatment modalities affects the natural course of LyP...

Indeterminate cell histiocytosis is a rare disease belonging to the group of malignant histiocytic diseases. The disease predominantly affects the skin. The disease appeared in the described patient at the age of 80 years. Morphs began to develop on the skin and rapidly spread over the whole body including the face. Only the hands and feet were left uncovered. The patients skin samples were taken from 2 sites for histological examination. The resulting conclusion was indeterminate cell histiocytosis. The treatment we chose was analogous to the procedures for Langerhans cell histiocytosis...

The incidence and temporal trends of psoriasis in Denmark between 2003 and 2012 were examined. There was a female predominance ranging between 50.0% (2007) and 55.4% (2009), and the mean age at time of diagnosis was 47.7-58.7 years. A total of 126,055 patients with psoriasis (prevalence 2.2%) were identified. Incidence rates of psoriasis (per 100,000 person years) ranged from 107.5 in 2005 to a peak incidence of 199.5 in 2010. Incidence rates were higher for women, and patients aged 60-69 years, respectively...

The patient suffered from a 20-year course of generalized circumscribed scleroderma and presented with blisters in circumscribed areas of the affected skin. The development of subepidermal blisters has been described in all clinical forms of circumscribed scleroderma. Aetiology and pathogenesis of blister formation have not yet been clarified. An obstruction of the lymphatic vessels due to the present sclerosis is favoured. Treatment of bullous circumscribed scleroderma is considered to be difficult. Oral steroids, methotrexate, hydroxychloroquine and PUVA methods have been used with varying success...

Acrokeratosis paraneoplastica Bazex (Bazex syndrome) is a rare paraneoplastic skin disease defined by erythematous, violaceous, scaly plaques on the hands and feet and on other acral locations such as nose and ears. Bazex syndrome is linked to a variety of underlying malignancies. Usually the skin lesions develop prior to the diagnosis of an internal malignant neoplasm with spontaneous remission after tumor removal. The objective of this study was to review the so far reported risk factors, diagnostic work up, prognosis and treatment options for Bazex syndrome in a systematic manner...

We review developments in the field of phototherapy in terms of the treatment wavelength, dosimetry and phosphor used for different dermatoses. We attempt to categorize skin lesions and diseases by morphology, focusing on conditions that can be treated using phototherapy and photochemotherapy. Recent research and review articles are studied, the treatments explained and information on phototherapy that is applicable to psoriasis and other diseases is tabulated. The clinical features, epidemiology, epitalogy and various types of psoriasis, together with the therapies available to treat them are reported...

Necrobiosis lipoidica (NL) is a rare granulomatous disease of hitherto unclear etiology frequently seen in patients with diabetes. Characterized by its potential for ulcerations, it often presents a serious burden for those affected. There are currently neither German nor European guidelines for the treatment of NL. At the same time, standard treatment with topical or intralesional corticosteroids does not always show satisfactory results. We therefore set out to evaluate whether the various treatment regimens published since 2000 have actually expanded the therapeutic armamentarium in a relevant manner...

Die Necrobiosis lipoidica ist eine seltene granulomatöse Erkrankung von bisher unzureichend geklärter Ätiologie. Häufig stellt die bei Diabetikern gehäuft zu beobachtende und zur Ulzeration neigende Dermatose eine starke Belastung für die Patienten dar. Bezüglich der Therapie existieren aktuell keine deutschen oder europäischen Leitlinien. Gleichzeitig lässt sich unter der aktuellen Standardtherapie, der lokalen oder intraläsionalen Anwendung von Glukokortikoiden, nicht immer ein zufriedenstellendes Ansprechen beobachten...

BACKGROUND: Photochemotherapy with psoralen and ultraviolet A (PUVA), with or without adjuvant interferon-α (IFN-α), is a first-line therapy for early-stage mycosis fungoides and other forms of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). However, the mechanism by which PUVA with IFN-α work in CTCL is poorly understood. PURPOSE: To develop a model to investigate the mechanisms of PUVA and PUVA with IFN-α in CTCL cells. METHODS: An in vitro model to study the molecular mechanisms of PUVA was created using two different CTCL cell lines, MyLa, which has functional p53, and HuT-78, in which p53 is inactivated due to a homozygous nonsense mutation...

BACKGROUND: Bath-psoralen plus ultraviolet light A (PUVA) therapy is an effective, safe, and inexpensive treatment for psoriasis. Psoriasis might be due to an unbalanced ratio of Th17 cells and regulatory T cells (Treg). The Treg functional ratio is significantly lower in patients with psoriasis compared with controls and is inversely correlated with the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index score. We previously reported that bath-PUVA therapy significantly increases the number of Treg and restores Treg function to almost normal in most patients with psoriasis...

Median canaliform nail dystrophy (MCND) is an uncommon and idiopathic dystrophic change, which typically appears as central, longitudinal groove or split involving one or both thumbnails. Various treatments including a potent topical steroid, an intralesional injection of triamcinolone 2.5-3 mg/dL, medications for systemic treatment, and topical psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA) have been tried to treat the disease. However, each treatment has limitations including severe pain, inconsistent treatment results, long treatment periods, and dissatisfaction with effects of treatment...
