Severe psoriasis upped lymphoma risk in large cohort study

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...

While it’s hard not to notice the brilliant display of colors set off by a sunset over the water, we seldom consider the biological, or even psychological, benefits of light. “It is my belief that good quality light in our daily lives is far more important than we might think,” writes Karl Ryberg. In his new book, Living Light: The Art of Using Light For Health And Happiness, Ryberg brings us his life’s work — studying the obvious and not so obvious ways in which light affects us and how we can use light in our lives not only function better, but feel better. Light, we know, plays an important...

Publication date: January 2019Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, Volume 7, Issue 1Author(s): Jonathan I. 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...

Representa la etapa final de muchas enfermedades dermatológicas en el adulto. La causa más frecuente es la psoriasis, le siguen las enfermedades eccematosas, las reacciones medicamentosas, la pitiriasis rubra pilaris y los linfomas cutáneos de células T.

Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) patients typically present with skin lesions, that seem inflammatory and in the initial disease stages are commonly mistaken for an inflammatory skin disease such as eczema or psoriasis. For inflammatory conditions like psoriasis it has been shown, that the expression of antimicrobial peptides (AMP) in lesional skin differs from healthy skin. With the present study we wanted to characterize the expression of AMPs in the skin of patients with CTCL.

Phototherapy has been used for decades in the treatment of many common dermatologic conditions, such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, vitiligo, and scleroderma, among others. Before the commencement of phototherapy, many factors must be considered. For dermatologists, the most important factors include the determination of a patient ’s skin phototype, concurrent use of photosensitizing agents, and calculation of minimal erythema dose (MED). Though infrequent, the side-effects to phototherapy commonly discussed with patients include burns, ocular toxicity, polymorphous light eruption, potent...

Conclusions: The presence of C. pneumoniae DNA in the blood cells is a frequent event in late stages of MF/SS and may be explained by Th2 shift and suppression of the immune system during the course of the disease. PMID: 30008645 [PubMed]

Abstract Patients with psoriasis have an increased risk of cancer, which may be due to impaired immune surveillance, immune modulatory treatments, chronic inflammation and/or co-risk factors such as obesity. The increase in treatment-independent solid cancers, including urinary/bladder cancers, oropharynx/larynx, liver/gallbladder and colon/rectal cancers, seem to be linked to alcohol and smoking. Lung cancer and nonmelanoma skin cancer are also increased in patients with psoriasis. The risk of nonmelanoma skin cancer increases with age and severity of psoriasis. It is also higher in men, particularly for squamous...

If the day of the triffids were ever to come, then Heracleum mantegazzianum, would be the henchmen. The giant hogweed, also known as the cartwheel-flower, the giant cow parsnip, hogsbane, or giant cow parsley, is a nasty plant. It is called hogweed because the flowers smell of pigs. But, that is not the worst thing about it. You may have read in the news recently of the crippling effects it had on an unwitting Welsh gardener. His bare legs brushing against the plant developed nasty and deep blisters in the coming days and awful pain. He is apparently still unable to walk because of the damage done by the pla...
