PURPOSE: Neutrophilic dermatosis of the hands is an inflammatory skin condition related to Sweet syndrome that responds to corticosteroids. It commonly affects the dorsum of the hand and often mimics infection, with violaceous inflammatory papules and plaques that may ulcerate. The aim of this study was to review the clinical presentation of neutrophilic dermatosis of the hands. METHODS: A retrospective review was undertaken of all cases of neutrophilic dermatosis of the hands seen at a tertiary hospital in New South Wales, Australia, over a 5-year period...

Sweet syndrome, or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, is a systemic disease process mainly characterized by hyperpyrexia and skin lesions. A newly described entity, necrotizing Sweet syndrome, is a severe and locally aggressive dermatological condition that clinically and histopathologically resembles a necrotizing soft tissue infection. It is characterized by pathergy, a nonspecific inflammatory response to cutaneous trauma resulting in a propagation of the disease. In contrast to a necrotizing infection, this condition responds to systemic steroids...

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a common chronic liver disease. It can progress to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and, in a percentage of cases, to hepatocarcinogenesis. The strong incidence in western countries of obesity and metabolic syndrome, whose NAFLD is the hepatic expression, is thought to be correlated to consumption of diets characterized by processed food and sweet beverages. Previous studies described high-fat diet-induced liver tumors. Conversely, the involvement of low-fat/high-carbohydrate diet in the progression of liver disease or cancer initiation has not been described yet...

Sweet's syndrome (SS) or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis is an uncommon condition. It is characterized by fever, polymorphonuclear leukocytosis, painful erythematous cutaneous plaques, and dense dermal infiltrate of neutrophils without vasculitis at the site of skin lesions. Lesions in SS might enlarge and coalesce with increasing dermal oedema, resulting in pseudo-vesicular appearance mimicking joint infections. Here, a rare case of SS mimicking acute haematogenous periprosthetic infection in a 74-year-old woman with a history of total knee arthroplasty is reported...

INTRODUCTION: Idiopathic hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism (IHH) with an olfactory deficit is defined as Kallmann syndrome (KS) and is distinct from normosmic IHH. OBJECTIVE: Because olfactory perception not only consists of orthonasally gained impressions but also involves retronasal olfactory function, in this study we decided to comprehensively evaluate both retronasal and orthonasal olfaction in patients with IHH. METHODS: This case-control study included 31 controls and 45 IHH patients...

Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis (Sweet's syndrome) is an uncommon inflammatory cutaneous disorder. It presents with lesions which are tender, erythematous, edematous papules and under histologic examination show dense neutrophilic infiltration of the dermis. These lesions are often accompanied by leukocytosis and fever. This paper reports a unique case of acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis presenting as a Koebner response to a linear scar.

Hispanics have an increased risk for metabolic disorders, which evidence suggests may be due to interactions between lifespan biological, genetic, and lifestyle factors. Studies show the diet of many U.S. Hispanic groups have high sugar consumption, which has been shown to influence future preference for and consumption of high-sugar foods, and is associated with increased risk for insulin-related disorders and obesity. Taste is a primary determinant of food preference and selection. Differences in neural response to taste have been associated with obesity...

Sweet syndrome, also known as acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, is an uncommon inflammatory disorder marked by fever and swelling of the skin that can be very painful. It is especially rare in the pediatric population. Infection is a well-known trigger for Sweet syndrome, but this entity has, to our knowledge, never been described after Mycoplasma infection. Herein, we describe the first pediatric case of febrile neutrophilic dermatosis associated with Mycoplasma infection.

BACKGROUND Functional dyspepsia (FD) refers to a group of upper gastrointestinal syndromes, subdivided into two types: postprandial distress syndrome (PDS) and epigastric pain syndrome (EPS). The etiology of FD remains unclear; however, unhealthy dietary habit is one potential underlying cause. We aim to explore the association of poor dietary habits with FD and its subtypes. MATERIAL AND METHODS A validated epidemiological questionnaire was designed to investigate dietary habits and gastrointestinal syndromes...

Anosmia, the loss of sense of smell, is a common nonmotor feature of Parkinson's disease (PD). Ageusia, the loss of sense of taste, is additionally an underappreciated nonmotor feature of PD. The olfactory tract is involved early in PD as indicated by frequent occurrence of hyposmia or anosmia years or decades before motor symptoms and by autopsy studies showing early synuclein pathology in the olfactory tract and anterior olfactory nucleus even in the early stages of PD. Testing for olfaction consists of evaluation of olfactory thresholds, smell identification and discrimination, and olfactory memory...

BACKGROUND: Insulin resistance is associated with higher breast cancer (BC) penetrance in BRCA mutation carriers. Metabolic syndrome (MetS), an insulin resistance syndrome, can be reversed by adhering to the Mediterranean diet (MedDiet). In a dietary intervention trial on BRCA mutation carriers, we evaluated adherence to the MedDiet, and the association with the MetS, by analyzing data from the Mediterranean Diet Adherence Screener (MEDAS). METHODS: BRCA mutation carriers, with or without BC, aged 18 to 70 years, were eligible for the trial...

Rheumatoid arthritis and spondyloarthritis are inflammatory joint disorders with an autoimmune pathogenesis and systemic involvement. The skin is one of the most frequently affected extraarticular sites with a number of manifestations or distinct diseases, including common conditions, such as rheumatoid nodules and psoriasis, and rare diseases like neutrophilic dermatoses. The latter are clinically characterised by polymorphic lesions, including pustules, bullae, abscesses, papules, nodules, plaques and ulcers, and histologically by neutrophil-rich inflammatory infiltrates...

Sweet's syndrome is a rare neutrophilic dermatosis. Typically, patients present with a sudden onset of tender erythematous skin lesions (papules, nodules, and plaques), of asymetrical distribution, located preferentially on the superior limbs, face and neck, associated whith high fever and neutrophilia. Histologicaly, there is a diffuse infiltrate of neutrophils located in the dermis. Most of the time idiopathic, it may be associated with a respiratory or gastro-intestinal infection, with inflammatory bowel disease, pregnancy and vaccination...

Neutrophilic dermatoses are a heterogenous group of chronic, cutaneous inflammatory conditions characterized by the accumulation of neutrophils in the skin and by systemic inflammation. Neutrophilic dermatoses can be idiopathic or associated with other inflammatory or systemic diseases, including the group of the hereditary, autoinflammatory syndromes. Clinical management is challenging, due to limited clinical evidence and lack of clinical practice guidelines. Areas covered: This review provides an overview of current therapeutic management of the three prototypical neutrophilic dermatoses, aseptic pustulosis of the folds, Sweet syndrome and pyoderma gangrenosum...

Helicobacter pylori is a gram-negative, flagellate, microaerophilic bacterium identified for the first time about 30 years ago, as a pathogenic factor of gastritis and peptic ulcer. Soon after, it was linked to several gastrointestinal and extra-gastrointestinal diseases (hematological, cardiovascular, neurological, pulmonary and ocular diseases, obesity, diabetes mellitus, growth retardation and extragastric MALT lymphoma). Association and possible cause-effect correlation with H. pylori infection were suggested in diseases of dermatological interest such as chronic urticaria, rosacea, Henoch-Schoenleins purpura, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, cutaneous and oral lichen planus, atopic dermatitis, recurrent aphthous stomatitis, systemic sclerosis, psoriasis, Sjögrens syndrome, Behçet's disease, pruritus, alopecia areata, primary cutaneous marginal zone B-cell lymphomas, vitiligo, chronic prurigo, multiformis, prurigo nodularis, leukocytoclastic vasculitis, prurigo pigmentosa, eczema nummulare, primary cutaneous MALT-type lymphoma, sublamina densa-type linear IgA bullous dermatosis, Sweet's syndrome, cutaneous T-cell pseudolymphoma and pemphigus vulgaris...
