Acquired cold urticaria is a condition characterized by the onset of pruritic hives, swelling, and occasional severe systemic reactions, during the rewarming phase, after cold exposure. Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PTE) is a cardiac surgical procedure where organized thrombus is excised from the pulmonary vasculature in order to improve pulmonary blood flow and relieve pressure on the right ventricle. A PTE requires institution of deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA) in order to reduce blood flow from collateral vessels during thrombus excision...

The cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS) is a severity spectrum of rare diseases. CAPS comprises the three conditions previously described as familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (FCAS), Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS), and neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disorder (NOMID), also known as chronic infantile neurologic, cutaneous, and articular (CINCA) syndrome. The clinical phenotype of CAPS is characterized by systemic inflammation. General symptoms are fatigue and fever. Local manifestations affect multiple tissues such as skin, joints, muscles, eyes, and the central nervous system...

BACKGROUND: Physical urticaria is a subtype of chronic urticaria induced by a physical stimulus. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the consistency between a history of physical urticaria and results of challenge testing. METHODS: Seventy-six subjects, ages 3 to 77 years old, were referred with the diagnosis of a physical urticaria and were evaluated by using challenge testing directed toward the presenting diagnosis, yet included other stimuli based on history...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Next-generation sequencing is revolutionizing the molecular taxonomy of human disease. Recent studies of patients with unexplained autoinflammatory disorders reveal germline genetic mutations that target important regulators of innate immunity. RECENT FINDINGS: Whole-exome analyses of previously undiagnosed patients have catalyzed the recognition of two new disease genes. First, a phenotypic spectrum, including livedo racemosa, fever with early-onset stroke, polyarteritis nodosa, and Sneddon syndrome, is caused by loss-of-function mutations in cat eye syndrome chromosome region, candidate 1 (CECR1), encoding adenosine deaminase 2...

Cold-induced urticaria (CIU) is a potentially life-threatening immunologic disorder characterized by swelling and edema of exposed tissue in response to a cold stimulus. We describe the successful management of a patient with a history of severe CIU who required coronary bypass and repair of an ascending aortic aneurysm using hypothermic circulatory arrest.

Cold-induced urticaria (CU) is a chronic physical urticaria that can be hard to diagnose and manage. Symptoms of CU can vary from mild localised urticaria, angio-oedema to anaphylaxis. CU may be induced by a wide range of cold triggers from aquatic activities to ingestions of cold substances. This exemplifies the importance of accurate diagnosis and management of patients with CU. We present three cases of CU that demonstrate the variability in triggers and clinical presentation.

BACKGROUND: While a number of the consequences of mast cell degranulation within tissues have been documented including tissue-specific changes such as bronchospasm and the subsequent cellular infiltrate, there is little known about the immediate effects of mast cell degranulation on the associated vasculature, critical to understanding the evolution of mast cell dependent inflammation. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the microcirculatory events that follow mast cell degranulation...

Whole-exome sequencing was performed in a family affected by dominantly inherited inflammatory disease characterized by recurrent blistering skin lesions, bronchiolitis, arthralgia, ocular inflammation, enterocolitis, absence of autoantibodies, and mild immunodeficiency. Exome data from three samples, including the affected father and daughter and unaffected mother, were filtered for the exclusion of reported variants, along with benign variants, as determined by PolyPhen-2. A total of eight transcripts were identified as possible candidate genes...

INTRODUCTION: Cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome is a rare genetic disorder causing cold-induced urticaria, severe arthralgias, and (potentially) renal failure and hearing loss. Therapies that effectively control the symptoms and prevent the complications of this debilitating disorder are now available, making recognition of this disease important. CASE PRESENTATION: A 60-year-old Caucasian woman presented with complaints of rash and joint pains to a general medicine clinic...

BACKGROUND: Mendelian analysis of disorders of immune regulation can provide insight into molecular pathways associated with host defense and immune tolerance. METHODS: We identified three families with a dominantly inherited complex of cold-induced urticaria, antibody deficiency, and susceptibility to infection and autoimmunity. Immunophenotyping methods included flow cytometry, analysis of serum immunoglobulins and autoantibodies, lymphocyte stimulation, and enzymatic assays...

Mast cells are considered the primary initiators of allergic diseases as a consequence of the release of multiple inflammatory mediators on activation. Although predominately activated through antigen-mediated aggregation of IgE-occupied-FcɛRI, they can also be induced to release mediators by other receptors and environmental stimuli. Based on studies conducted in the RBL 2H3 rodent mast cell line, the transient receptor potential melastatin 8 (TRPM8) cation channel has been implicated in the activation of mast cells in response to cold and, by inference, the development of urticaria...

General body cooling and local hypothermia during cardiopulmonary bypass in theory could precipitate a severe systemic anaphylaxis in the case of cold-induced urticaria. We present a case of cold-induced urticaria and describe how preanesthetic single-dose steroid, H(2) antagonist, and antihistamine, normothermic retrograde, and antegrade cardioplegia administration were all employed with normothermic conditions in the prevention of life-threatening anaphylaxis during coronary artery bypass grafting.

PURPOSE: To determine if the treatment of cold induced urticaria refractory to conventional antihistamine-type therapy would respond to treatment with sympathomimetic amines. METHODS: Dextroamphetamine sulfate (15 mg) extended release capsules were prescribed to be taken daily in the morning. RESULTS: The cold-induced urticaria completely disappeared and antihistamine therapy was discontinued. CONCLUSIONS: Treatment of chronic refractory cold-induced urticaria effectively responds to treatment with sympathomimetic amines similar to other cases of chronic refractory urticaria that are not merely cold induced...

The onset of wheals and/or angioedema following the exposure to cold may be associated with a number of different diseases. Most frequently this occurs in cold contact urticaria, a type of physical urticaria, which is characterized by a positive cold stimulation test. The clinical symptoms are based on cold-dependent mast cell activation with subsequent release of proinflammatory mediators. In cases of negative or atypical reaction to cold stimulation testing rare acquired atypical or familiar cold urticaria forms may be suspected...

Cold-induced urticaria is an unusual systemic disorder that develops in response to exposures to cold temperatures in susceptible individuals. Patients with cold urticaria are potentially at risk of severe systemic anaphylactic shock-like reactions. This disorder is of unique clinical importance in cardiac surgery, considering the use of cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermia. Contact of blood with hypothermia and subsequent warming can be associated with hemodynamic instability, hypotension, and cardiovascular collapse, mainly during the period of rewarming...

INTRODUCTION: Meeting of the medial eyebrows in the midline (synophrys) may serve as a cutaneous marker lesion for syndromal disorders (e.g. Cornelia de Lange syndrome). CASE PRESENTATION: A 31-year-old man showed supercilia forming a single band of terminal hairs between left and right lateral orbital rim. Medical examination of the patient revealed coldness-inducable urticaria, xanthelasma formation and long eyelashes without any signs of a syndromal disorder...
