Extracutaneous involvement in mycosis fungoides (MF) carries a poor prognosis. Oral and gastrointestinal (GI) tract lesions are both rare locations of disease. We describe the clinical findings of one case with oral and GI MF complicated by perforation after systemic antineoplastic treatment, and review the relevant literature. The patient had a 1-year history of MF before development of tongue and palate tumors. He was treated with local electron beam radiation, but re-presented to the hospital after what was found to be small intestine perforation following systemic antineoplastic therapy...

Phaeosphaeriaceae is a family in the order Pleosporales containing numerous plant pathogens, endophytes, lichenised fungi, and environmental saprobes. A novel genus, Tintelnotia is introduced containing two species, one of which caused an eye infection and several nail infections in humans. All species of Tintelnotia produce conidia in soft pycnidia with a wide ostiole. The generic type species is T. opuntiae causing necrotic spots on cactus plants. The isolates of the human opportunist T. destructans showed variable susceptibility pattern to a panel of common antifungal agents...

Aspergillosis is an important deep mycosis. The causative agents are Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, and Aspergillus terreus, of which A. fumigatus is the most prevalent. Cryptic Aspergillus spp., which morphologically resemble representative species of each Aspergillus section, also cause aspergillosis. Most of the cryptic species reveal different susceptibility patterns and/or different secondary metabolite profiles, also called exometabolome in this manuscript, from those representative species...

The practice of preemptive individualized medicine is predicated on the discovery, development, and application of biomarkers in specific clinical settings. Mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome are the two most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, yet diagnosis, prognosis, and disease monitoring remain a challenge. In this review, we discuss the current state of biomarker discovery in mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome, highlighting the most promising molecules in different compartments. Further, we emphasize the need for continued multicenter efforts to validate available and new biomarkers and to develop prospective combinatorial panels of already discovered molecules...

Eczema and urticaria are common disorders encountered in pediatric patients, but they may occasionally be the presenting complaint in a child with an underlying rare disease. Immunodeficiency syndromes should be suspected when eczema is associated with neonatal onset, recurrent infections, chronic lymphadenopathy, or failure to thrive. Nutritional deficiencies and mycosis fungoides are in the differential diagnosis for a child with a recalcitrant eczematous eruption. Autoinflammatory syndromes should be suspected in a child with chronic urticaria, fever, and other systemic signs of inflammation...

TP53 is frequently mutated in different types of neoplasms including leukemia and lymphomas. Mutations of TP53 have also been reported in mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common type of cutaneous lymphoma. However, little is known about the frequency, spectrum of mutations, and their prognostic significance in MF. In this study, we have optimized the protocol for Sanger sequencing of TP53 using DNA extracted from archival paraffin-embedded biopsies. Of 19 samples from patients with stage IIB MF or higher, 31% harbored mutations in TP53...

REVIEW
Jingwen Xue, Cynthia Liu, Yuehua Liu
Mycosis fungoides is the most common cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. It is characterized by slow progress over years to decades, developing from patches to infiltrated plaques, and sometimes to tumors. Therapies such as localized chemotherapy, photochemotherapy and radiotherapy are often employed when lesions of refractory or relapsing mycosis fungoides are resistant to conventional therapies. However, these methods have acute or chronic side effects and toxicity, which may accumulate with repeated and protracted treatment cycles...

There is increasing evidence supporting the need for antifungal stewardship (AFS) programmes in order to promote appropriate antifungal use, improve diagnosis and quality of care, and decrease the costs of antifungal treatment. AFS programmes delivered by experienced teams can be efficacious and cost effective. However, there are a variety of challenges often faced during the implementation of AFS programmes which can present barriers to their success. These can include lack of dedicated personnel, lack of investment in new diagnostic and prescription tools, and misperception by other physicians...

Primary cutaneous gamma-delta (γδ) T-cell lymphoma is a rare disease that typically involves the dermis and subcutis. Cases of primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas showing γδ phenotype and predominantly epidermotropic pattern (EγδTCL) are not well defined. In this series, cases of primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas showing γδ phenotype were reviewed and classified as predominantly epidermotropic (EγδTCL) when >75% of lymphoma cells resided in the epidermis or predominantly dermal and/or subcutaneous (DSγδTCL)...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral T-cell lymphomas, not otherwise specified (PTCL-NOS), are a rare condition characterised by specific histology, nodal presentation, and a poor prognosis. In total, 10-18% of patients present with cutaneous involvement which is regarded as a poor prognostic marker. However, cutaneous PTCL-NOS lesions have been rarely reported in the literature. OBJECTIVES: We sought to describe PTCL-NOS cases characterised by erythrodermic dissemination to the skin...

Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. The clinical course of the disease is typically characterized by progression from a nonspecific phase of erythematous macules to the appearance of plaques and ultimately, in some patients, tumors. However, numerous clinical and histopathologic variants of MF with specific therapeutic and prognostic implications have been described in recent decades. Clarification of the differential diagnosis can be frustrated by the wide range of clinical manifestations and histopathologic patterns of cutaneous infiltration, particularly in the early phases of the disease...

: Sporotrichosis is a common subcutaneous mycosis in Latin America, produced by dimorphic fungi belong to Sporothrix schenckii complex of cryptic species. Infection is acquired by traumatic inoculation with contaminated organic material. Host immune response includes polymorphonuclear neutrophils chemotaxis and release of granular components. Lactoferrin is a protein member of the transferrin family of iron-binding proteins, present inside polymorphonuclear granular structure, and has been reported to affect growth and development of infectious agents, including fungal organisms...

INTRODUCTION: Mycosis fungoides is a kind of malignant lymphoma arising from T cells, but primarily occurs in skin, and it is the most common type of cutaneous lymphoma. Mycosis fungoides (MF) is a rare non-Hodgkin lymphoma but the most common type of primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas. Because of unknown etiology and mechanism, and lack of typical clinical and histophysiological manifestations, the final diagnosis of MF is currently dependent on pathology and immunohistochemistry. Subsequently, tumor staging is very important...
