Drug rash with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) syndrome is an uncommon, life-threatening drug reaction. The basic findings are skin rash, multiorgan involvement, and eosinophilia. Most of the aromatic anticonvulsants, such as phenytoin, phenobarbital and carbamazepine can induce DRESS. Herein we report a 14-year-old patient with DRESS syndrome related to carbamazepine use. The patient presented with signs of involvement of the skin, lungs, liver, and microscopic hematuria. Carbamazepine treatment was discontinued; antihistamines and steroids were started...

Interstitial nephritis is responsible for about 12 % of end-stage renal disease in Germany. It comprises an etiologically heterogenous group of inflammatory renal disorders which primarily affect the renal interstitium and tubuli. Drugs, predominantly antibiotics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and proton pump inhibitors are causative in the majority of cases. Rheumatic diseases frequently affect the kidneys, either the glomeruli or the interstitial tissues. Inflammatory interstitial processes can be accompanied by complex functional tubular disorders...

BACKGROUND: Pyoderma ga ngrenosum (PG) is a rare, inflammatory, destructive neutrophilic dermatosis, which mimics other ulcerative conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a retrospective study based on patients diagnosed with PG over a 3-year period (2010-2013), we evaluated demographics, anatomical sites, number of lesions, subtypes, histopathology, associated conditions, treatment regimens, healing time, and recurrence. RESULTS: Of our five patients, there were three males and two females, age ranging between 19 and 58 years (mean age 38 years)...

BACKGROUND: Drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome (DIHS)/drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) is a severe systemic hypersensitivity reaction caused by specific drugs, in which herpesvirus reactivations and organ dysfunction occur during the course of the disease. Although recent reports have documented the development of autoimmune disease after complete resolution of DIHS/DRESS, relatively little is known about long-term outcomes after complete resolution of the disease...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) are one of most frequently prescribed drugs in the world. The purpose of this review is to describe the hypersensitivity reactions to PPI. RECENT FINDINGS: Hypersensitivity reactions to PPI vary from mild symptoms to life-threatening disorders. Cases of urticaria, angioedema, anaphylaxis, cytopenia, vasculitis, acute allergic interstitial nephritis, occupational contact dermatitis, photoallergic dermatitis, maculopapular eruption, erythroderma, Drug rash with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) syndrome, Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis, and other autoimmune reactions (including cutaneous lupus erythematosus) have been described...

Chronic leg ulcers have various causes and can be difficult to treat, although topical treatments, including basic fibroblast growth factor and PGE1, have been used. We applied an allogeneic cultured dermal substitute (CDS) to eight patients with intractable ulcers. The patients had various underlying diseases, including diabetes mellitus, systemic lupus erythematosus, antiphospholipid syndrome, necrobiosis lipoidica, stasis dermatitis, livedo vasculopathy, and rheumatoid arthritis. The CDS was prepared by seeding cultured human fibroblasts on a spongy matrix consisting of hyaluronic acid and atelocollagen...

Minocycline is a semi-synthetic, second-generation tetracycline. It was introduced in 1972 and has both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Minocycline is used for a variety of infectious diseases and in acne. Even today, new indications beyond the antibacterial indications are being investigated such as its use in neurologic diseases. Formerly, minocycline was thought to have a superior efficacy in the treatment of inflammatory acne, especially with respect to antibacterial-resistant Propionibacterium acnes...

Drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome (DIHS)/drug rash with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) is a life-threatening adverse reaction characterized by skin rashes, fever, leukocytosis with eosinophilia or atypical lymphocytosis, lymph node enlargement, and liver or renal dysfunction. The syndrome develops 2 to 6 weeks after initiation of administration of a specific drug. It has been demonstrated that various herpesvirus reactivations, in addition to human herpesvirus 6, contribute to internal organ involvement and the relapse of symptoms observed long after discontinuation of the causative drugs...

Drug eruptions are among the most common adverse drug reactions, affecting approximately 3% of hospitalised patients. Although the rate of severe cutaneous adverse reactions to medications is low, these reactions can affect anyone who takes medication, and can result in death or disability. Two general patterns can be distinguished, depending on the type of onset of these cutaneous adverse drug reactions: acute or chronic. Acute-onset events are usually rather specific cutaneous 'syndromes' that constitute emergencies and should therefore be promptly recognised and treated, while chronic-onset events often present as dermatological diseases...

PURPOSE: Cyclines are broad-spectrum antibiotics often used in acne. Side effects might occur precociously or more insidiously during long term treatment such in acne. The aim of this study is to review all adverse effects recently reported in this indication. CURRENT KNOWLEDGE AND KEY POINTS: A literature review from 1997 to 2001 has been conducted. Seventy-six articles reporting 250 cases have been found. Data analysis indicated that minocycline is the most widely incriminated molecule...

The lesions of 161 patients with chronic skin diseases that were unresponsive to therapy were treated once a week with clobetasol propionate lotion left under the completely occlusive patch Duoderm. The lesions completely resolved after a period of nine days to four weeks in 148 patients, while partial remission was observed in the remaining 13. The following diseases responded favourably: chronic plaque psoriasis, psoriasis on palms and soles, palmoplantar pustulosis, skin lesions related to Reiter's syndrome, chronic lichenified eczema, neurodermatitis, breast eczema, discoid lupus erythematosus, lichen planus, sarcoidosis, lichen sclerosus et atrophicus and lymphocytic infiltrate of Jessner...

The lesions of 141 patients with chronic skin diseases unresponsive to therapy were treated once a week with clobetasol propionate lotion left under the completely occlusive patch Duoderm. In 131 patients the lesions resolved completely, while partial remission was observed in the remaining 10. The mean interval to complete remission was: for chronic plaque psoriasis, 12 days; psoriasis on palms and soles, 2.5 weeks; palmoplantar pustulosis, 2.2 weeks; skin lesions of Reiter's syndrome, 3 weeks; chronic lichenified eczema, 2...
