Allergic contact derm

Young Hee Sung, Ingak Kwon, Sungho Jo, Seungmi Park
PURPOSE: We sought to determine the type and incidence of ostomy-related complications and identify associated factors in Korean ostomy patients. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of medical records of 1,170 patients who underwent end colostomy in Samsung Medical Center between October 1994 and February 2005 was completed. Complications were classified as stomal or peristomal. Stomal complications included bleeding, necrosis, mucocutaneous separation, prolapsed stoma, retracted stoma, and stenosis...

An allergic dermatitis reaction may develop after systemic exposure to a hapten that reaches the skin through haematogenous transport. This condition can be observed with and without previous cutaneous sensitization to the hapten but has traditionally been described following topical exposure. A heterogeneous clinical picture, in combination with limited insight to its pathomechanisms, makes such systemic reactions an area in need of further study. This article summarizes knowledge about systemic dermatitis elicited by drugs, with a special emphasis on possible pathomechanisms...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) has cellular immunohistochemical features similar to those of allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) and there is plenty of evidence for T-cell activation in this disease. The involvement of CD30+ T cells in acute stages of atopic dermatitis might establish CD30 as a helpful marker in differentiating those two diseases. Tissue sections from the skin of 12 patients with active atopic dermatitis and 13 with allergic contact (nickel-induced) dermatitis were immunohistochemically analyzed for cell-surface antigens, including CD30, CD3, CD4, and CD45RO...

BACKGROUND: Contact hypersensitivity (CHS) is a local inflammatory response of the skin following challenge of hapten-sensitized animals. It is the consequence of cell infiltration of derm and the release of inflammation mediators, among which Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) is one of the most important factors. The intensity of the inflammation could be quantified by ear swelling which is the classical manifestation of the reaction. This study was testing the working hypothesis that levels of TNF-alpha in skin organ culture medium should correlate with the intensity of CHS reaction measured in vivo by ear swelling assay, and with the density of dermal infiltrate in ear skin samples...
