Sporotrichosis is the most prevalent subcutaneous mycosis and is characterized by a subacute or chronic development of a cutaneous or subcutaneous nodular lesion. It is caused by the dimorphic fungus Sporothrix spp, which may manifest in different clinical forms. The disseminated cutaneous form is uncommon and is more likely to occur in immunocompromised patients. We report a 47-year-old male patient with multiple cutaneous and subcutaneous nodules. The patient was diagnosed with disseminated cutaneous sporotrichosis based on the isolation and identification of Sporothrix spp...

Nivolumab is a monoclonal antibody that binds to the PD-1 receptor on T cells and inhibits the interaction with the PD-L1 and PD-L2 ligands on cancer cells. Thus, nivolumab has immunostimulatory properties. The known side effects of this therapy include fatigue, skin rash, dysfunction of the thyroid gland and colitis, which are explained by the immunoregulatory mechanisms of the drug. Here we report on the case of a 58-year-old man with metastatic base of tongue carcinoma who developed de novo psoriasis triggered by nivolumab...

A 70-year-old man presented to our clinic with a 10-year history of recurrent pruritic erythema and plaques on his trunk and limbs. Based on the pathological findings and monoclonal rearrangement of the T-cell receptor (TCR)-Cβ1 gene, mycosis fungoides (T2N0M0B0 stage IB) was diagnosed. Despite combination therapy including histone deacetylase inhibitor (vorinostat), the symptoms slowly evolved into Sézary syndrome (SS; T4N1M0B2) over 4 years, with dense infiltrates due to atypical lymphocytes expressing CCR4 developing in the entire dermis...

Patients with mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common subtype of primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, have an increased risk of developing secondary malignancies. We herein report two rare cases of MF concurring with diffuse large B cell lymphoma (B lymphoid lineage) and acute myeloid leukemia (myeloid lineage) in two otherwise healthy elderly patients. Potential etiologic factors, including the impact of the therapy-associated inflammatory response on the development of secondary tumors in patients with MF, are discussed...

Folliculotropic mycosis fungoides (FMF) is a variant of mycosis fungoides (MF) with folliculotropic, atypical lymphocytes that may or may not have mucin deposition surrounding the hair follicle. Follicular mucinosis (FM) is a primary or secondary finding in FMF, lupus, or collagen vascular diseases that is only a histological process of mucin deposition surrounding the hair follicles. We present a case of a 6-year-old boy who had features of both FMF and primary follicular mucinosis (PFM). The case reveals key insights on FMF with concurrent FM in pediatric patients and how to differentiate between FMF and PFM...

BACKGROUND: While substantial dermoscopic analysis of melanocytic lesions has been performed, dermoscopic characterization of cutaneous lymphoid proliferations has been limited. Cutaneous lymphoma, particularly early mycosis fungoides (MF) and its variants, is often challenging to clinically and pathologically distinguish from inflammatory processes of the skin. This study aimed to survey the dermoscopic findings of cutaneous lymphomas and to discern whether any patterns might potentially serve as specific signatures...

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...

Interleukin (IL)-36γ is expressed by keratinocytes and functions as a key initiator of inflammation in the skin. IL-36γ expression is enhanced by tumor necrosis factor-α and IL-17A, having a strong association with psoriasis. In this study, we examined the role of IL-36γ in atopic dermatitis (AD) and mycosis fungoides (MF)/Sézary syndrome (SS). Serum levels of IL-36γ in AD patients and MF/SS patients were elevated compared with those of healthy controls. Importantly, serum IL-36γ levels in AD patients positively correlated with Eczema Area and Severity Index and those of MF/SS patients positively correlated with serum soluble IL-2 receptor levels...

Histoplasmosis is considered one of the most important endemic and systemic mycoses worldwide. Until now few molecular techniques have been developed for its diagnosis. The aim of this study was to develop and evaluate three real time PCR (qPCR) protocols for different protein-coding genes (100-kDa, H and M antigens) using an animal model. Fresh and formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded (FFPE) lung tissues from BALB/c mice inoculated i.n. with 2.5x106 Histoplasma capsulatum yeast or PBS were obtained at 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 12 and 16 weeks post-infection...

Numerous clinicopathological variants of mycosis fungoides have been described in the literature. Dermatomal or zosteriform mycosis fungoides is one reported variant but a clear aetiology has never been documented. We report a case of mycosis fungoides proved by biopsy and immunohistochemistry that developed in a 55-year-old man at the site of previous herpes zoster eruption. We also present a review of the relevant literature to add to the understanding of rare variants of mycosis fungoides and aid in the clinical recognition of zosteriform mycosis fungoides...

A 64-year-old man presented with a 2 week history of progressive phimosis and painful ulcer on his penile meatus. He underwent penile preserving excision, and subsequent pathological examination confirmed T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma with immunohistochemical features of large cell transformation of mycosis fungoides. The penis was further treated with local external beam radiotherapy consisting of 27 Gy in 15 fractions and systemic mini-CHOP chemotherapy. An organ-preserving tissue response has since been achieved...

Purpose: Sporotrichosis is a subcutaneous mycosis caused by Sporothrix sp., a dimorphic fungus. Although the cutaneous form is the most frequent form, the ocular presentation has been increasingly diagnosed in epidemic areas. We describe three cases of ocular sporotrichosis with the involvement of the ocular adnexa due to autoinoculation without trauma with successful antifungal treatment. Observations: Patient 1: A 68-year-old woman presented with granulomatous conjunctivitis of the right eye with an ulcerated nodule on the right temporal region for 5 months...

Histoplasmosis is an endemic mycosis in the Ohio and Mississippi River valleys and can cause disseminated infection in immunocompromised hosts. Disseminated histoplasmosis is often respiratory in nature and most cases in transplant patients occur within 2 years post-transplantation. A 32-year-old male on mycophenolate and tacrolimus who underwent an orthotopic liver transplantation 10 years prior presented with generalized body aches, fevers, mild congestion, dysuria and elevated transaminases. Liver biopsy revealed epithelioid granulomas with narrow-based budding yeast, suggesting histoplasma...

Candida albicans is an opportunistic pathogen commensal in the oral cavity, vagina, and healthy skin. Common therapeutic options for fungal infections are topical or systemic antifungal drugs. Recently, in cutaneous pathologies, lasers and light-based treatments have emerged showing few contraindications and minimal side effects. The Q-switched (Nd-YAG) laser at a wavelength of 1064 nm has been shown to be useful in dermatology, dentistry, and some other medical specialties. It is used to treat onychomycoses, warts, and wounds and in some other treatments...
