The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of prolonged therapy with low-dose clarithromycin in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with polyps (CRSwP) after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). A total of 10 patients with CRSwP were identified and subjected to bilateral ESS. In post-operative patients they were treated with nasal wash with saline solution and steroid sprays (beclomethasone). During follow-up, after 30-40 days after the operation (M = 35.4 SD = +4.33), patients reported a worsening of symptoms with onset of nasal obstruction; reduction/loss of smell; headache; onset of viscous secretions and therefore all patients continued therapy with saline nasal irrigation, topical steroid therapy and started macrolide (clarithromycin 500 mg/pill: 1 pill/day for 3 days a week for 1 month)...

BACKGROUND: Topical corticosteroids (TCS) can induce adverse effects, such as skin atrophy. Although TCS can cause increases in intraocular pressure (IOP), the effects of daily TCS use on IOP have not been fully elucidated. We evaluated the clinical doses of TCS and the change in the IOP during the daily treatment of atopic dermatitis (AD). METHODS: We collected clinical data on a total of 65 patients who were diagnosed with AD and underwent 2 or more IOP measurements at our hospital...

Background: Liver dysfunction is a topic of global concern with many advancing therapies being researched. Though vitamin D takes a center place, other therapies especially nutritional are also gaining ground. Vitamin D has gone beyond its role in skeletal disorders by showcasing its associations in other metabolic dysfunctions too. Result: Epidemiological evidences show a correlation between the status of vitamin D and different forms of cancer. Vitamin D receptors and alterations in gene expression appear decisive in the development of chronic liver disorders...

Topical corticosteroids are some of the most common drugs used in oral medicine for treating atrophic and erosive lesions that affect the mucosa. Adverse effects of these drugs include oral candidiasis with associated burning mouth and hypogeusia, hypersensitive reactions to the drug, and inhibition of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and secondary adrenal insufficiency. The ocular side effects of oral topical steroids are less documented. This short communication describes a case of central serous retinopathy that developed following administration of oral topical steroid...

Episcleritis is the inflammation of the thin, loose, highly vascular connective tissue layer that lies between the conjunctiva and sclera. Incidence is less than 1/1000. It is more common in women and those between 40 and 50 years of age. Most cases are idiopathic. It is classified into simple and nodular. Most attacks resolve within 1-3 months. The nodular type tends to be more recurrent and painful. It presents with acute onset of redness, lacrimation, and photophobia. The diagnosis of is essentially clinical, and eye pain or tenderness should raise the concern for scleritis...

The treatment of atopic dermatitis in adults is based on the use of topical steroids and emollients. When AD is resistant to a well-conducted topical treatment, phototherapy or systemic treatments can be used: ciclosporin, methotrexate, azathioprine or mycophenolate mofetil. The therapeutic landscape of adult AD is about to change and even be revolutionized by the imminent arrival of new treatments: topical phosphodiesterase 4 inhibitors, topical or systemic JAK inhibitors, anti-IL-4 and/or antiIL-13 biotherapies (dupilumab, tralokinumab, lebrikizumab), anti-IL-31 (nemolizumab), anti-TSLP...

Sofosbuvir is an imperative drug used in treatment regimens for hepatitis C virus (HCV). It is considered relatively safe with fewer adverse effects than other treatments. Here, we report a rare and potentially serious, dermatologic, adverse effect following the use of sofosbuvir. A 35-year-old man with genotype 3-related HCV cirrhosis presented with decompensated ascites and jaundice following 7 weeks of therapy with peginterferon alpha-2a and oral ribavirin. After peginterferon withdrawal and stabilization, oral sofosbuvir and ribavirin were started; 10 days later, he developed itching over the trunk and legs, followed by multiple papules and vesicles over an erythematous base...

REVIEW
Uwe Wollina, Alberto Goldman
Stretch marks are one of the most common benign cutaneous lesions and encountered esthetic problems. Striae rubrae and striae albae can be differentiated on the basis of clinical appearance. Histologically, disturbances of the dermal fiber network and local expression of receptors for sexual steroids have been detected. The epidermal changes are secondary. Prevention of stretch marks using topical ointments and oils is debatable. Treatment of striae rubrae by lasers and light devices improves appearance. Microneedling and non-ablative and fractionated lasers have been used...

We report the case of a 27-year-old female who presented with a peculiar story of anosmia fluctuating in a circadian manner. Olfactory function appeared an hour after breakfast, was normal during daytime, and disappeared in the early evening. Imaging confirmed chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Initial systemic, followed by topical steroid treatment, rapidly and sustainably reversed this condition. The olfactory fluctuation paralleled the endogenous steroid production. This suggests that slight congestion changes in a chronically inflamed nasal mucosa may have been sufficient to induce this circadian anosmia...

Acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) complicates allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), and is treated with topical and/or systemic corticosteroids. Systemic corticosteroids and aGVHD damage thymic tissue. We compared thymopoietic effect of topical steroid therapy, corticosteroids and extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) in 102 pediatric allogeneic HSCT patients. We categorized patients into 4 groups: - no aGVHD, aGVHD treated with topical or systemic steroid, or ECP. Naïve CD4+CD45RA+CD27+ T-lymphocyte values at 3, 6, 9, 12months post-HSCT were recorded: for ECP patients, values were recorded at 3, 6, 9, 12months during ECP...

Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia (WM) is lymphoplasmacytoid malignancy that affects B lymphocytes. Cutaneous involvement of WM is rare, but various cutaneous manifestations have been reported. These findings are due to various pathological processes including direct invasion of tumor cells into the skin, deposition of paraproteins, hyperviscosity syndrome, and cryoglobulinemia. A 64-year-old man presented with a 10-day history of pruritic erythematous papules and plaques on his trunk and elbows. The clinical features were suspicious for eczematous dermatitis...
