Erin H Penn, Hye Jin Chung, Matthew Keller
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...

Skin diseases presenting with keratotic papules, atrophy, cicatricial alopecia, and/or "lichenoid" histopathologic changes have been described under at least 30 names. This family of diseases contains two subgroups, largely based on clinical features: keratosis pilaris atrophicans (KPA; including keratosis pilaris atrophicans faciei/ulerythema ophryogenes, atrophoderma vermiculata , and keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans); and the lichen planopilaris (LPP) subgroup (including LPP, frontal fibrosing alopecia, Graham-Little-Piccardi-Lassueur Syndrome, and fibrosing alopecia in a pattern distribution)...

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...

A major function of the skin is the regulation of body temperature by sweat secretions. Sweat glands secrete water and salt, especially NaCl. Excreted water evaporates, cooling the skin surface, and Na(+) ions are reabsorbed by the epithelial sodium channels (ENaC). Mutations in ENaC subunit genes lead to a severe multi-system (systemic) form of pseudohypoaldosteronism (PHA) type I, characterized by salt loss from aldosterone target organs, including sweat glands in the skin. In this study, we mapped the sites of localization of ENaC in the human skin by confocal microscopy using polyclonal antibodies generated against human αENaC...
