Dermatology was consulted in the care of a 58-year-old man with a history of paranoid schizophrenia, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, a positive purified protein derivative test, and a lack of bathing for approximately 4 years who had been admitted to the hospital because of thick, crusted lesions over an increasing portion of his body. Admitted involuntarily, he was disinterested in the history, physical examination, and diagnostic testing. Comorbid schizophrenia presented a unique challenge because he was unable to participate in his care effectively...

Paraneoplastic pemphigus is a rare autoimmune blistering disease generally associated with malignancy. The clinical presentation consists typically of painful and diffuse erosive stomatitis that may be accompanied by polymorphic skin lesions and systemic involvement. Diagnosis is based on clinical manifestations and confirmed by histology and immunological testing. The current first-line treatment is systemic corticosteroids and adjuvant therapies, including immunosuppressive agents. We report a case of buccal paraneoplastic pemphigus resistant to ibrutinib and rituximab successfully treated with azathioprine and polyclonal immunoglobulins...

Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is a life-threatening disease belonging to the pemphigus group of autoimmune intra-epidermal bullous diseases of the skin and mucosae. The therapeutic management of PV remains challenging and, in some cases, conventional therapy is not adequate to induce clinical remission. The cornerstone of PV treatment remains systemic corticosteroids. Although very effective, long-term corticosteroid administration is characterized by substantial adverse effects. Corticosteroid-sparing adjuvant therapies have been employed in the treatment of PV, aiming to reduce the necessary cumulative dose of corticosteroids...

B cells are major effector cells in autoimmunity through antibody production, T cell help and pro-inflammatory cytokine production. Major advances have been made in human B cell biology knowledge using rituximab and type II new anti-CD20 antibodies, anti-CD19 antibodies, anti-CD22 antibodies, autoantigen specific B cell depleting therapy (chimeric antigen receptor T cells), and B cell receptor signaling inhibition (Bruton's tyrosine kinase inhibitors). However, in certain circumstances B cell depleting therapy may lead to the worsening of the autoimmune disease which is in accordance with the existence of a regulatory B cell population...

Paraneoplastic pemphigus (PNP) is a severe autoimmune blistering disease associated with an underlying malignancy, and its prognosis is poor. We herein report the first patient with B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (B-CLL/SLL)-associated PNP successfully treated with the Bruton's tyrosine kinase inhibitor ibrutinib and rituximab. Although his PNP lesions did not improve with ibrutinib monotherapy, the combination of ibrutinib and rituximab was effective against B-CLL/SLL-associated PNP...

The involvement of the oral mucosa in patients affected by pemphigus vulgaris (PV), paraneoplastic, IgA pemphigus, and in some cases iatrogenic pemphigus is common and often a prelude to skin lesions. Intraepidermal bullae are caused by acantholysis, induced by IgG autoantibodies directed against the desmosomes and the domain of numerous keratinocytes self-antigens desmogleins (namely cadherins), thus supporting the autoimmune nature of the disease. Apoptosis may contribute to the acantholysis. Oral mucosal lesions are more commonly refractory to treatment compared to skin lesions and have been associated with disease duration, disease location and possibly the presence of HSV DNA in the oral cavity...

Although significant progress has been made for the treatment of pemphigus vulgaris (PV) with rituximab (RTX), a consensus remains to be determined for standard treatment protocol, regarding optimal dosing, infusion regimen, and use of concomitant immunotherapy to achieve safe, effective, and rapid clinical response. We describe a patient with pemphigus vulgaris treated with high dose rituximab with the rheumatoid arthritis protocol along with intravenous immunoglobulin therapy. This case provides evidence towards the growing body of research needed to modify and improve treatment for pemphigus using rituximab...

Importance: The association between pemphigus and neurologic diseases was not evaluated systematically in the past. In a recent uncontrolled cross-sectional study, Parkinson disease was found to be significantly associated with pemphigus; in the same study, epilepsy had a nonsignificant association with pemphigus. Several case reports have suggested that pemphigus coexists with multiple sclerosis and dementia. Objective: To estimate the association between pemphigus and 4 neurologic conditions (dementia, epilepsy, Parkinson disease, and multiple sclerosis), using one of the largest cohorts of patients with pemphigus...

Paraneoplastic Pemphigus (PNP) is a rare and often fatal autoimmune mucocutaneous blistering disease associated with an underlying malignancy. It is thought to be caused by antibodies to tumor antigenscross-reacting with epithelial antigens, specifically desmosomal and hemidesmosomal antigens. There are at least five clinical morphologic variants of PNP, with the earliest and most consistent finding beingsevere stomatitis. Diagnosis of PNP requires direct immunofluorescence of perilesional skin and indirect immunofluorescence...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Ashley E Brown, Kiran Motaparthi, Sylvia Hsu
Rituximab and intravenous immunoglobulin [IVIg] have recently emerged as effective treatments for pemphigus refractory to corticosteroids [CS]. This case series sought to compare the clinical, serologic,and adverse effects of CS, IVIg, and rituximab in patients with pemphigus. A retrospective review of 63 patients with pemphigus vulgaris (PV), pemphigus foliaceus (PF), or paraneoplastic pemphigus (PNP)was performed. Clinical remission (CR), serologic remission (SR), and adverse effects were evaluated. Three study groups were compared: patients treated with systemic CS, refractory patients treated withIVIg, and refractory patients treated with rituximab...

BACKGROUND: Rituximab (RTX) is an effective therapy for patients with pemphigus; however, the therapy does not prevent relapse. OBJECTIVES: To compare early relapsing patients (before 12 months) and late relapsing patients (after 24 months) following RTX therapy. METHOD: In this prospective study, 19 patients were enrolled (14 with pemphigus vulgaris and 5 with pemphigus foliaceus). The baseline disease score, autoantibody levels, and percentage of CD20+ cells of patients with pemphigus were measured...

Pemphigus is a group of rare, potentially devastating autoimmune diseases of the skin and mucous membranes with high morbidity and potentially lethal outcome. The major clinical variant, pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is caused by a loss of intercellular adhesion of epidermal keratinocytes which is induced by IgG autoantibodies against components of desmosomes. Specifically, IgG against the desmosomal adhesion proteins, desmoglein 3 (Dsg3) and desmoglein 1 (Dsg1), preferentially target their ectodomains which are presumably critical for the transinteraction and signalling function of these adhesion molecules...

Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is a rare autoimmune disease due to the production of pathogenic autoantibodies directed against desmoglein 1 and 3, usually affecting both skin and mucous membranes. Recently, rituximab, a chimeric IgG1 monoclonal antibody which targets the CD20 molecules have been regarded as a promising treatment for PV. In this study, a systematic review was conducted to conclude on how and which PV patients could benefit from rituximab infusion. Search in PubMed results in 114 relevant studies, which met the criteria...
