Ipilimumab is an immunomodulatory antibody directed against cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4), which is administered to patients with advanced melanoma, with a proven positive effect on overall survival. The cutaneous adverse effects (AEs) of ipilimumab are relatively frequent, although described as usually mild and rarely life threatening. To describe a three-year experience of a single institute in detecting and managing cutaneous AEs. A cohort of patients (n = 41) treated with ipilimumab (3 mg/kg/three weeks) for metastatic melanoma, from 2013 to 2016, was investigated for adverse cutaneous events...

Very early onset inflammatory bowel disease (VEO-IBD) is a unique disease entity with a complex genetic susceptibility in affected patients. Next-generation gene sequencing techniques have revealed various monogenetic mutations contributing to the pathogenesis of VEO-IBD, including interleukin 10 (IL-10) and IL-10 receptor (IL-10R) mutations. In this article, we reviewed the features of and effective therapeutic options for VEO-IBD with IL-10 and/or IL-10R mutations. The IL-10 signal pathway inhibits the release of several key cytokines and thereby has a significant anti-inflammatory effect in the gastrointestinal tract...

Due to the increasingly widespread use and side effect profile of epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitors (EGFRIs), cutaneous side effects of these drugs are frequently encountered. The EGFR is expressed on keratinocytes and fibroblasts. Inhibition of EGFR can produce a range of cutaneous adverse effects, the most frequent being a characteristic acneiform skin eruption. As the latter is associated with good anti-neoplastic responses, the onset of EGFRI-induced acneiform skin eruption is typically viewed as a positive sign by patients and physicians...

Imatinib mesylate (imatinib) is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor initially approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2001 for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Since then, the number of indicated uses for imatinib has substantially increased. It is increasingly important that dermatologists recognize adverse cutaneous manifestations of imatinib and are aware of their management and outcomes to avoid unnecessarily discontinuing a potentially lifesaving medication. Adverse cutaneous manifestations in response to imat-inib are not infrequent and can include dry skin, alopecia, facial edema, and photosensitivity rash...

Radiotherapy associated with cetuximab (Cet-RT) is an alternative treatment to platinum-based chemoradiotherapy in locally advanced head and neck carcinoma (LAHNC). Reviews suggest that the use of cetuximab is associated with poorer tolerance in patients unfit for chemotherapy than in pivotal trial. We retrospectively studied patients first treated by Cet-RT for LAHNC presenting contraindications to chemoradiotherapy. Objectives were treated population description, acute tolerance, progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS), and 3-month clinical response...

Chemical peeling, a procedure wherein a chemical agent is applied to the skin to cause controlled destruction followed by regeneration and remodeling, is a dynamic tool for the treatment of acne, pigmentation issues, and photoaging [Journal of cutaneous and aesthetic surgery vol. 5 (2012) 254-260]. The results and complications are related to the depth of the procedure, with deeper peels producing more marked results and higher rates of complications. Complications are more likely with darker skin types, certain peeling agents, and sun exposure after treatment [Journal of cutaneous and aesthetic surgery vol...

Lipophilic yeast Malassezia species is widely found on the skin surface of humans and other animals. This fungus can cause pityriasis versicolor, Malassezia folliculitis, and seborrheic dermatitis. Still now, there is a problem with species identification of Malassezia with conventional methods. We developed a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay with multiple hybridization probes for detecting M. globosa, M. furfur, M. restricta, M. sympodialis, M. slooffiae, and M. pachydermatis. The amplification curves and specific melting peaks of the probes hybridized with real-time PCR product were used for species identifications...

Demodex mites may induce inflammatory cutaneous reactions such as papulopustular rosacea and demodex folliculitis; both may lead to post inflammatory pigmentation. A 59-year-old man presented with an asymptomatic, hyperpigmented plaque on his face. Histological and clinical findings displayed Riehl-like facial pigmentation. Multiple demodex mites at the follicular infundibulum in the biopsy material were remarkable. There are limited publications about demodex-associated pigmentation. We report this case to point out that various hyperpigmentation disorders may occur simultaneously with demodex mites...

Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) is a rare cutaneous disorder that typically occurs in three clinical contexts: men, individuals who are immunosuppressed or have human immunodeficiency virus, and infants. A fourth subtype occurring 2 to 3 months after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has recently been described in several adults. We report two cases of EPF arising in children after HSCT. It is important to recognize this form of EPF after HSCT and differentiate it from graft-versus-host disease since it responds readily to topical steroids and appears to have an excellent prognosis...

Pruritic folliculitis of pregnancy is a rare disease of unknown etiology. It occcurs primarily during pregnancy, usually with spontaneous resolution postpartum. It is characterized by a benign dermatosis, with papular and pustular follicular lesions that first appear on the torso and occasionally spread throughout the body. We report the case of a patient in the 27th week of pregnancy, with a two-month evolution of pruritic and papular erythematous lesions on her lower back. Differential diagnosis includes other pregnancy-specific dermatoses: gestational pemphigoid, pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP), prurigo of pregnancy, and (PUPPP) and prurigo of pregancy...

Perforating dermatoses are a group of skin diseases characterized by transepidermal elimination of dermal material. The disease is divided into two groups: the primary group and the secondary group. The classical or primary perforating dermatoses are subdivided into four types according to the eliminated dermal materials: Kyrle disease, perforating reactive collagenosis, elastosis perforans serpiginosa, and perforating folliculitis. The secondary form is known as acquired perforating dermatosis. The term was proposed in 1989 by Rapini to designate the perforating dermatoses affecting adult patients with systemic disease, regardless of the dermal materials eliminated...

REVIEW
Rei Ogawa
Keloids and hypertrophic scars are caused by cutaneous injury and irritation, including trauma, insect bite, burn, surgery, vaccination, skin piercing, acne, folliculitis, chicken pox, and herpes zoster infection. Notably, superficial injuries that do not reach the reticular dermis never cause keloidal and hypertrophic scarring. This suggests that these pathological scars are due to injury to this skin layer and the subsequent aberrant wound healing therein. The latter is characterized by continuous and histologically localized inflammation...

Intrauterine infections are associated with life-threatening neonatal conditions such as sepsis, intracranial hemorrhage, and chronic lung disease. Herein we present a case of generalized congenital folliculitis caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) in a preterm neonate of 27 weeks gestational age successfully treated with antibiotics. Folliculitis is an important manifestation of intrauterine P. aeruginosa infection and prompt, effective treatment is crucial to ensuring a good prognosis.

Acne necrotica is a disorder of adults of obscure aetiology, featuring repeated cropping of inflammatory papulonodules which rapidly necrotise, leaving varying degrees of superficial scarring with pathological features in early lesions of a necrotising lymphocytic folliculitis. A perceived diminishing interest in this entity in recent years prompted a prospective study of patients presenting to a dermatology practice over a 3-year period to reassess the prevalence of this disorder in general dermatological patients, leading to the identification of 47 patients (35 female) with features of acne necrotica, with histopathology undertaken in atypical cases...

BACKGROUND: Cutaneous lymphomas are a heterogeneous group of tumors with various clinical manifestations, histological features, and prognoses. METHODS: Among 425 cases of cutaneous lymphoma, we describe eight cases of peripheral T-cell lymphoma, unspecified, presenting with generalized benign-looking dermatitis. RESULTS: Our case series included eight cases of secondary cutaneous peripheral T-cell lymphoma, unspecified. The observed clinical morphology features included drug eruption-like generalized morbilliform maculopatches in two cases, generalized folliculitis-like papules in two cases, and generalized eczematous dermatitis-like papules and patches in four cases...
