Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common form of primary cutaneous lymphoma with a broad clinicopathological spectrum. Unusual histopathologic patterns of MF include lichenoid, interstitial, folliculotropic, spongiotic, granulomatous, and many others. Several cases of unusual lichenoid reaction characterized by a mixed lichenoid inflammatory infiltrate with prominent infiltration of the papillary dermis and epidermis by multinucleated giant cells were described under the name of "giant cell lichenoid dermatitis," most of them were considered to represent a drug eruption...

BACKGROUND: Immunodeficiency (ID) correlates with worse outcomes and decreased immune checkpoint molecule expression in melanoma. The impact of ID in mycosis fungoides (MF) is unknown. OBJECTIVE: Our goal was to evaluate the impact of ID in MF. METHODS: We conducted a case-control study of 17 patients with MF and ID versus age-, stage-, and race-matched controls as a subset of a comparative analysis of 23 patients with MF with ID (prior lymphoma, recent/current pregnancy, HIV, hypogammaglobulinemia, and prior chemotherapy) versus without ID...

Cutaneous T cell lymphoma is a heterogeneous group of lymphomas characterized by the accumulation of malignant T cells in the skin. The molecular and cellular etiology of this malignancy remains enigmatic and what role antigenic stimulation plays in the initiation and/or progression of the disease remains to be elucidated. Deep sequencing of the tumor genome revealed a highly heterogeneous landscape of genetic perturbations and transcriptome analysis of transformed T cells further highlighted the heterogeneity of this disease...

Candidiasis represent a serious threat for patients with altered immune responses. Therefore, we have undertaken the synthesis of compounds comprising a pyridine-3-sulfonamide scaffold and known antifungally active 1,2,4-triazole substituents. Thus a series of novel 4-substituted N-(5-amino-1H-1,2,4-triazol-3-yl)pyridine-3-sulfonamides have been synthesized by multistep reactions starting from 4-chloropyridine-3-sulfonamide via N'-cyano-N-[(4-substitutedpyridin-3-yl)sulfonyl]carbamimidothioates which were further converted with hydrazine hydrate to the corresponding 1,2,4-triazole derivatives 26-36...

Fingolimod was the first oral disease-modifying drug approved for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS). It has previously been associated with rare cases of lymphoma. Here we describe the first case of mycosis fungoides - a cutaneous lymphoproliferative disorder, in an MS patient treated with fingolimod. who developed histologically confirmed mycosis fungoides 3 years after starting fingolimod. The drug was withdrawn and the patient was treated with radiotherapy and surgical excision with remission...

UV- based (PUVA and Narrow Band UVB) phototherapy is broadly and commonly used in the treatment of Cutaneous T-cell Lymphomas (CTCL), yet unfortunately the evidence for the efficacy of these treatments is based only on cases series or prospective but non-randomized studies. Therefore, no internationally approved guidelines exists and no standardization of schedules have been proposed. Recently, Consensus guidelines have been published by the United States Cutaneous Lymphoma Consortium. The aim of this paper is to review the biologic and clinical evidences on PUVA and NB UVB in CTCL, and to critically evaluate acceptability and feasibility of these guidelines in the real-life setting from the perspective of the Cutaneous Lymphoma Task Force of the Italian Lymphoma Foundation (Fondazione Italiana Linfomi, FIL)...

Mycosis fungoides is a cutaneous T-cell lymphoma with a high risk for developing secondary malignancies, especially B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders. About 40 cases of Hodgkin's lymphoma associated with mycosis fungoides have been reported in literature till date. We report a case of a 35-year-old gentleman who presented with intensely itchy reddish lesions all over the body. Multiple skin biopsies taken from the lesions on scalp and back confirmed the clinical diagnosis of mycosis fungoides. While on treatment, he presented with multiple bilateral cervical, axillary and inguinal lymphadenopathy 9 years after the primary diagnosis of mycosis fungoides...

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic inherited disease due to mutations in the gene cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). Because of the huge diversity of CFTR mutations, the CF phenotypes are highly heterogeneous, varying from typical to mild form of CF, also called atypical CF. These atypical features are more frequently diagnosed at adolescence or adulthood, and among clinical signs and symptoms leading to suspect a mild form of CF, colonization or infection of the respiratory tract due to well-known CF pathogens should be a warning signal...

Deep trichophytosis is relatively uncommon. The infection of the bearded area is also known as sycosis barbae or tinea barbae and can be caused by various fungal species, most often zoophilic fungi. We report on an 80-year-old male patient with severe sycosis barbae who had no animal contact and was treated with systemic antibiosis without improvement. Microbial and mycological investigations using swabs from oozing lesions revealed Staphylococcus hemolyticus and Candida parapsilosis. Histology demonstrated fungal elements in hair follicles...

Between 2008 and 2015, 462 newly-diagnosed adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL) patients with cutaneous involvement were found from the nationwide registry for Japanese patients with cutaneous lymphoma, of which 391 were selected for the study. They ranged in age from 28 to 93 years (median, 69 years), and included 215 men and 176 women (male : female ratio = 1.2). The 391 patients comprised 193 (50%) with smoldering type, 52 (13%) with chronic type, 44 (11%) with lymphoma type and 102 (26%) with acute type...

Granulomatous slack skin syndrome is a rare variant of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (mycosis fungoides). It is characterized clinically by redundant skin folds, which show a predilection towards flexural areas such as the axilla and the groin. Histologically, it shows a granulomatous T-cell infiltrate and loss of elastic tissue. It has an indolent but progressive course; and is usually refractory to treatment. We report a unique case of slack skin syndrome, sparing the classical sites with rapid and unusual involvement of non-intertriginous areas...

Chronic pruritus is a difficult condition to treat and is associated with several comorbidities, including insomnia, depression, and decreased quality of life. Treatment for chronic itch includes corticosteroids, antihistamines, and systemic therapies such as naltrexone, gabapentin, UV light therapy, and immunomodulatory treatments, including azathioprine, methotrexate, and cellcept. However, some patients still remain refractory to conventional therapy. Aprepitant is a neurokinin-1 receptor antagonist approved for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced and postoperative nausea and vomiting (CINV, PONV)...

BACKGROUND Paracoccidioidomycosis is an endemic mycosis in Central and South America caused by the thermally dimorphic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. Despite its self-limited course and usually asymptomatic infection, some patients may present with a systemic illness mimicking multiple conditions and thus question the general state of their immune system.

Primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) affect the skin and tend to transform and spread. CTCL involves primarily the Mycosis fungoides (MF) and more aggressive Sezary syndrome (SS). Oncogenic microRNAs (miRs) are stable epigenetic inhibitors often deregulated in the tumour and detectable as biomarkers in non-cellular fractions of peripheral blood. The tumour-specific expression of miR-155, miR-203, and miR-205 was shown to correctly diagnose CTCL. We herein asked whether these microRNAs can be used as plasma biomarkers for clinical CTCL monitoring...

We describe for the first time the diagnosis of Schizophyllum commune infection in a captive cheetah. Eosinophilic plasmacytic conjunctivitis was detected histopathologically in a biopsy specimen. Both a second surgical specimen and drainage fluid from a gingival mass and fistula contained fungal hyphae in giant cells with granulomatous inflammation. Allergic S. commune mycosis was suspected at this point. A monokaryotic isolate was characterized morphologically, and then identified genetically. Treatment with itraconazole and pimaricin was effective...
