Nicolau syndrome is a rare form of iatrogenic cutaneous necrosis which affects injection sites. Although classically associated with intramuscular injections, it may develop after subcutaneous or other routes of parenteral drug administration. Clinically, it manifests as necrotic ulcers that often develop in a background of erythematous and livedoid reticular patches. The histopathologic characteristics of Nicolau syndrome are poorly documented in the dermatopathology literature and features only rarely as one of the obscure causes of cutaneous thrombotic vasculopathy...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Lamellar ichthyosis (LI) is a well-described phenotypic subtype of autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI). The condition typically presents at birth with collodion membrane and leads to thick, plate-like scaling of the skin throughout the body, alopecia, and prominent ocular manifestations. Ocular complications include bilateral cicatricial ectropion and lagophthalmos. These ocular complications can lead to chronic exposure keratitis and in some cases corneal ulceration and blindness...

Congenital and acquired vascular anomalies are common in childhood. In addition to predominantly harmless vascular skin alterations there are others which must be immediately treated due to the potentially threatening complications. As examples three anomalies and the typical complications are presented. Hemangiomas in infancy can make urgent treatment necessary because they can be complicated by obstruction or painful ulceration. Kaposiform hemangioendothelioma can lead to a life-threatening consumption coagulopathy...

Primary cutaneous large B‑cell lymphomas (PCBLT), EBV-positive large B‑cell lymphomas, not otherwise specified (EBV+ DLBCL, NOS), and primary cutaneous intravascular large B‑cell lymphomas (PCIVLBL) are recognized as cutaneous lymphomas with intermediate to poor prognosis. Differentiation from indolent B‑cell lymphomas or other pathologies of the skin can be complex, both clinically and histologically, but vital for the outcome of the patient. The combination of immunotherapy and polychemotherapy regimens, such as R‑CHOP, has led to significant improvements in prognosis, especially in diffuse large B‑cell lymphomas...

Relationship between radiation-induced skin ulceration (RSU) and variables in percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) was rarely reported. RSU is a severe complication in PCIs, especially for chronic total occlusion (CTO) lesions. We investigated the RSUs and their risk factors in patients receiving CTO PCIs over a 2-year period. Data were analyzed using chi-square tests, t-tests and receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve. Of 238 patients, 11 patients (4.6%) had RSUs all at right upper back. RSUs were significantly associated with use of left anterior oblique (LAO) views (100% vs...

Trigeminal trophic syndrome (TTS) is a condition whereby persistent facial ulceration presents consequent to central or peripheral insult to the trigeminal nerve. Lesions are created by repetitive self-inflicted manipulation and trauma of dysaesthetic skin within the trigeminal dermatome. We discuss four cases with aetiologies varied from presumed microvascular compromise to resection of cerebral meningioma, cerebrovascular accident, and herpes zoster ophthalmicus. We discuss the management of the under-recognised associated periocular skin ulcerations that result from physical manipulation of dysesthic skin and prove to be persistent and challenging to treat...

Cutaneous leishmaniasis typically presents as a painless papule progressing to an ulcer or plaque. In this case study of the ear, the disease manifested as a small painful bump progressing into redness and swelling about the ear with purulent drainage. After multiple oral/intravenous antipseudomonal, antistaphylococcal, and antifungal treatments, there was no improvement. The skin progressed to an erythematous plaque and hemorrhagic ulcer; punch biopsy and speciation revealed Leishmaniasis guyanensis. The patient was switched to a seven-dose course of intravenous L-amphotericin B (visceral leishmaniasis protocol)...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: To explore the methods of clinical classification in chronic radiation-induced ulcers in the chest wall (CRUCWs). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 64 patients with CRUCWs were treated. We divided the cases into 3 types (mild, moderate, or severe) according to their clinical manifestations. Conservative treatments, axial-pattern myocutaneous or local flaps, or filleted flaps were applied correspondingly. RESULTS: The cases were divided as follows: mild (n = 11), moderate (n = 45), and severe (n = 8)...

Artificial skin has achieved considerable therapeutic results in clinical practice. However, artificial skin treatments for wounds in diabetic patients with impeded blood flow or with large wounds might be prolonged. Cell-based therapies have appeared as a new technique for the treatment of diabetic ulcers, and cell-sheet engineering has improved the efficacy of cell transplantation. A number of reports have suggested that adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs), a type of mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC), exhibit therapeutic potential due to their relative abundance in adipose tissue and their accessibility for collection when compared to MSCs from other tissues...

Chronic wounds represent a major and rising health and economic burden worldwide. There is a continued search towards more effective wound therapy. We found significantly reduced microRNA-132 (miR-132) expression in human diabetic ulcers compared to normal skin wounds, and also in skin wounds of leptin receptor-deficient (db/db) diabetic mice compared to wild-type mice. Local replenishment of miR-132 in the wounds of db/db mice accelerated wound closure effectively, which was accompanied by increased proliferation of wound-edge keratinocytes and reduced inflammation...

Environmental changes have occurred over the years, altering the eco-epidemiological pattern of leishmaniosis in the State of Paraná, Brazil, involving the pillars of the cycle (parasite, vectors, reservoir, and environment) and their interaction. Much has been discussed about the dog's role as a reservoir of the Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis Vianna, 1911 transmission cycle. However, this question remains unanswered. The purpose of this study was to investigate, using parasitological and molecular methods, different samples in eight naturally infected dogs from an endemic rural locality where only L...

Bovine digital dermatitis (DD) is a contagious and multifactorial disease that leads to painful, ulcerative lesions of the skin near the heel-horn border of the foot, most commonly in dairy cattle. With regard to beef cattle, the pathogenesis and etiology of DD has not been widely reported or studied over the past several decades. A longitudinal field trial in a commercial feedlot was conducted to compare prevalence and effects of DD in beef steers provided a diet supplemented with a novel formulation of inorganic and organic trace mineral sources (OTM diet) compared to a diet provided with similar levels of trace minerals solely from inorganic sources (CON diet)...

A 73-year-old woman was treated 8 years previously for synchronous breast and uterine neoplasms. She presented with a severe sore throat, odynophagia, dysphonia, dyspnoea, ocular irritation and weight loss over the last 3 months. Physical examination revealed ulcerations in the oral cavity, posterior pharyngeal wall and supraglottic larynx, nasal crusting, bilateral conjunctivitis and three cutaneous blisters. A diagnosis of anti-laminin 5 mucous membrane pemphigoid was retained, based on skin biopsy, direct immunofluorescence and immunoprecipitation...

In the treatment of traumatic injuries, burns, and ulcers of the eye, inadequate epithelial tissue healing remains a major challenge. Wound healing is a complex process involving the temporal and spatial interplay between cells and their extracellular milieu. It can be impaired by a variety of causes including infection, poor circulation, loss of critical cells and/or proteins, and a deficiency in normal neural signaling (e.g. neurotrophic ulcers). Ocular anatomy is particularly vulnerable to lasting morbidity from delayed healing, whether it be scarring or perforation of the cornea, destruction of the conjunctival mucous membrane, or cicatricial changes to the eyelids and surrounding skin...

The mechanisms underlying endothelial cell injury and defective vascular repair in systemic sclerosis (SSc) remain unclear. Since the recently discovered angiogenic T cells (Tang) may have an important role in the repair of damaged endothelium, this study aimed to analyze the Tang population in relation to disease-related peripheral vascular features in SSc patients. Tang (CD3+CD31+CXCR4+) were quantified by flow cytometry in peripheral blood samples from 39 SSc patients and 18 healthy controls (HC). Circulating levels of the CXCR4 ligand stromal cell-derived factor (SDF)-1α and proangiogenic factors were assessed in paired serum samples by immunoassay...

Prisma® Skin is a new pharmaceutical device developed by Mediolanum Farmaceutici S.p.a. It includes alginates, hyaluronic acid and mainly mesoglycan. The latter is a natural glycosaminoglycan preparation containing chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, heparan sulfate and heparin and it is used in the treatment of vascular disease. Glycosaminoglycans may contribute to the re-epithelialization in the skin wound healing, as components of the extracellular matrix. Here we describe, for the first time, the effects of Prisma® Skin in in vitro cultures of adult epidermal keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts...
