Topical resiquimod effective for early-stage cutaneous T-cell lymphoma

Topical resiquimod was effective and well tolerated in patients with early-stage cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL), in some cases inducing regression in both treated and untreated lesions, according to researchers. The mean number of prior unsuccessful therapies among the patients was 6, yet the...

Discussion In this section, we discuss the mechanisms responsible for lymphomagenesis in the various inborn errors of immunity and provide an overview of the treatment. Defects in Immune Responses That Predispose to Lymphomagenesis in PIDDs The complex immune mechanisms and their interplay that predisposes to neoplastic transformation of B or T cells and development of lymphomas in PIDD patients has not been fully elucidated. However, it is expected that the etiology in most cases is multifactorial and related to a dynamic regulation of immune response and environmental triggers (Figure 3). An underlying intrinsic susce...

SilverbergOne in 4 adults with atopic dermatitis (AD) report adult-onset disease. Adult-onset AD appears to be associated with a different disease phenotype compared with childhood-onset AD. A broad differential diagnosis must be considered in a patient presenting with an adult-onset eczematous eruption, including allergic contact dermatitis, mycosis fungoides/cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, psoriasis, scabies, and so forth. This review will specifically address the diagnosis, workup, and ma...

A 48-year-old man was referred to our institution for acute limb ischaemia. He had been diagnosed with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, so-called mycosis fungoides by gene rearrangement analysis of skin biopsy samples 9 years ago. He had received prednisolone 5 mg daily and phototherapy for mycosis fungoides. Although allergy symptoms and signs including asthma, peripheral neuropathy and glomerulonephritis had not been evident, his rashes had been worsening in his face and abdomen for a few months. On examination, enhanced CT revealed thrombotic occlusion in the left posterior tibial artery (figure 1A, B) and multiple ...

We present a patient with allergic contact dermatitis caused by MI in hair care products and discuss this allergen to bring attention to this common cause of contact dermatitis, and to highlight its frequent use in hair care products. If allergy to MI is suspected, testing should be performed to this individual preservative, as testing solely for the combination preservative, methylisothiazolinone/methylchloroisothiazolinone (Kathon CG ®), may miss many cases of MI allergy.

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. – Psoriasis of all severities was linked to a 3.5-fold increase in risk of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, and severe psoriasis upped the associated risk of Hodgkin lymphoma by about 2.5 times, in a large, longitudinal, population-based cohort study. Psoriasis also was tied to a...
