BACKGROUND: IL36RN mutation has been identified as one pathogenesis of generalized pustular psoriasis, but the existence of GPP patients without mutation makes this controversial. OBJECTIVE: Our study aimed at assessing the differences in clinical profiles of children with GPP, with and without IL36RN mutation. METHODS: An ambispective case series study involved review of the records of 66 childhood patients with pediatric-onset GPP and without previous psoriasis vulgaris...

BACKGROUND: Generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP) is a rare, debilitating, and often life-threatening inflammatory disease characterized by episodic infiltration of neutrophils into the skin, pustule development, and systemic inflammation, which can manifest in the presence or absence of chronic plaque psoriasis (PV). Current treatments are unsatisfactory warranting a better understanding of GPP pathogenesis. OBJECTIVE: To understand better the disease mechanism of GPP to allow improved targeted therapies...

: Annular pustular psoriasis (annular PP) is a rare but severe variant of psoriasis which may even occur in early childhood. At this age therapeutic options are limited and medication issues can be challenging. We report clinical features, diagnostic findings and treatment of an 11-month-old girl with annular PP. Oral acitretin therapy was initiated at 0.9 mg/kg/d and gradually tapered after complete resolution in the subsequent 10 months without relapse. CONCLUSION: Acitretin proved to be a highly effective therapeutic option in an infant with annular PP...

On the basis of current evidence derived from hospital-based studies, mostly from North India, the prevalence of psoriasis in adults varies from 0.44 to 2.8%, with a much lower prevalence in children. The peak age at onset in adults is in the third and fourth decade of life, with a slight male preponderance. It is recommended that population-based large epidemiologic studies should be undertaken in different parts of the country for estimating the correct prevalence of psoriasis in general population. Chronic plaque-type psoriasis is the most common morphologic presentation of psoriasis, accounting for more than 90% of all cases...

Palmoplantar psoriasis refers to a localized psoriasis variant. The disease can be associated with many clinical forms, including predominantly pustular lesions to thick scaly, hyperkeratotic plaques, or an overlapping of both of them. Palmoplantar psoriasis accounts for 3-4% of all psoriasis cases in most studies. Although it is localized only on the palms and the soles, the fissures, the hardening of the tissue, and hyperkeratosis affect daily routine activities. Taking the body surface area as a measure of severity can sometimes be misleading...

Generalized pustular psoriasis appears as an uncommon variant form of psoriasis consisting of widespread pustules on an erythematous background (von Zumbusch). A 39-year-old male patient with a history of plaque psoriasis since the age of 9 who had an acute relapse of generalized pustular psoriasis 12 days following a successful renal transplantation is presented. Despite administered immunosuppression for transplantation, the addition of cyclosporine and methotrexate did not reverse the ongoing process of disease and the patient died on the 57th posttransplant day due to multiorgan failure subsequent to severe bone marrow suppression...

Geographic tongue (GT) is a benign inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology. Epidemiology and histopathology in previous studies found that generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP) is a factor associated with GT, but the molecular mechanism remains obscure. To investigate the mechanism of GT, with and without GPP, three cohorts were recruited to conduct genotyping of IL36RN, which is the causative gene of GPP. In a family spanning three generations and diagnosed with only GT ("GT alone"), GT was caused by the c...

BACKGROUND: Pustular skin disorders are a category of difficult-to-treat and potentially life-threatening conditions that involve the appearance of neutrophil-rich pustules. The molecular basis of most pustular skin conditions has remained unknown. OBJECTIVE: We sought to investigate the molecular basis of 3 pustular skin disorders: generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP), palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP), and acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP). METHODS: Microarray analyses were performed to profile genome-wide gene expression of skin biopsy specimens obtained from patients with GPP, PPP, or AGEP and healthy control subjects...

Although infliximab is approved for psoriasis, its efficacy is reduced over time in some patients. The aim of this phase III trial is to evaluate efficacy and safety of infliximab dose escalation in Japanese psoriasis patients with loss of efficacy to standard-dose therapy. Patients with plaque psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, pustular psoriasis or psoriatic erythroderma who showed loss of efficacy to standard-dose therapy received infliximab dose escalation (10 mg/kg every 8 weeks) from weeks 0 to 32. Loss of efficacy was defined as not maintaining 50% reduction in the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI 50) after achieving PASI 75...

INTRODUCTION: Pustular palmoplantar psoriasis (PPP) is a rare type of psoriasis affecting mainly distal parts of the limbs. Despite numerous theories about etiology of PPP, the pathogenesis still remains unclear. Recent data indicate that interleukin (IL)-15, IL-17 and IL-22 enhance a proinflammatory response in certain skin inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. There is also evidence that anti-endomysial (anti-EMA) and anti-gliadin (AGA) antibodies are engaged in PPP development...

BACKGROUND: Palmoplantar pustular psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that is associated with considerable impairment in quality of life and resilience. Given the lack of approved pharmacological agents for this indication and the frequently recalcitrant disease course, therapeutic options are limited. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Following unsatisfactory therapeutic attempts with other treatment modalities, nine patients (six women; three men) were treated with ustekinumab (45 mg in individuals < 100 kg body weight, 90 mg in individuals > 100 kg) at weeks 0, 4, 12, and 24...

Generalized pustular psoriasis, or psoriasis of von Zumbusch, is an acute and severe clinical form of psoriasis, which usually occurs in patients with psoriasis undergoing aggravating factors. In this work, we report the case of a female patient, 70 years old, who developed generalized pustular psoriasis symptoms while reducing the dose of oral corticosteroids, improperly introduced for the treatment of alleged acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis. The differential diagnosis of generalized pustular psoriasis should be made with other pustular dermatoses, such as subcorneal pustulosis, IgA pemphigus and especially with acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis...

Streptococcal toxic shock syndrome caused by group B streptococcus (GBS) is a rare, but lethal disease. We experienced a 45-year-old woman with pustular psoriasis who developed toxic shock-like syndrome during infliximab treatment. Surprisingly, similar episodes recurred three times in one year with restarting of infliximab treatments. In the third episode, GBS were detected in blood, urine, and vaginal secretion cultures. These episodes of shock syndrome were possibly due to GBS. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of recurrent streptococcal toxic shock syndrome possibly caused by GBS which was induced by anti-TNF-α inhibitor therapy...

The recently discovered interleukin (IL)-36 family of cytokines form part of the broader IL-1 family and are emerging as important mediators of inflammatory disease. The IL-36 subfamily consists of three ligands-IL-36α, IL-36β, and IL-36γ-and the natural antagonist IL-36Ra. The cytokines exert their effects through a specific IL-36 receptor consisting of IL-36R and IL-1RAcP chains. IL-36 cytokines can direct both innate and adaptive immune responses by acting on parenchymal, stromal, and specific immune cell subsets...

BACKGROUND: Data regarding the use of cyclosporine (CYC) in the treatment of childhood psoriasis is meager. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The records of all psoriasis patients aged less than 18 years and treated with systemic CYC at our institute were retrieved. Clinical status of patients was assessed at regular intervals and response to therapy was graded as good (50-75% decrease in PASI) and excellent (>75% decrease). Laboratory investigations to detect CYC-induced toxicity were done at regular intervals...

BACKGROUND: Palmoplantar pustular psoriasis (PPPP) is a variant of psoriasis, which has significant negative impact on quality of life. The cellular and molecular inflammatory pathways involved in PPPP have not been well studied. OBJECTIVE: Study the expression of cytokines and chemokines involved in the IL-17/IL-23 axis in palmoplantar pustular psoriasis and other difficult to treat psoriasis areas (palms, scalp, elbows and lower legs). METHODS: Skin biopsies were performed on a total of 80 patients with PPPP, non-pustular palmoplantar psoriasis (NPPPP), or psoriasis located on elbows, knees and scalp as well as 10 healthy subjects...
