Dermatological diseases of the male genital tract.

[Dermatological diseases of the male genital tract]. Hautarzt. 2016 Sep 2; Authors: Köhn FM Abstract During complete inspection of skin a variety of penile skin alterations may be found. Not all dermatological findings have clinical relevance. Pearly papules and heterotopic sebaceous glands are physiological variations. Most penile melanotic macules, angiokeratoma, fibroma and angioma have not to be treated. However, other more severe diseases such as malignant skin lesions (erythroplasia of Queyrat), infectious disease (human papillomavirus-induced penile warts) or systemic skin diseases (psoriasis) may be detected. Since patients are alarmed by genital skin lesions and their sexuality may be affected, the initiation of adequate therapy is an important task for urologists and dermatologists.

Abstract Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the primary risk factor for cervical cancer. While the HPV vaccine significantly reduces the risk of HPV infection and subsequent cervical cancer diagnosis, underuse is linked to lack of knowledge of its effectiveness in preventing cervical cancer. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a cancer educational intervention (titled "MOVENUP") to improve knowledge of cervical cancer, HPV, and the HPV vaccine among predominantly African American communities in South Carolina. The MOVENUP cancer educational intervention was conducted among participants residin...

We present herein a case of syphilide psoriasiforme, an uncommon but well recognized clinical presentation of secondary syphilis. A 46-year-old HIV-infected female patient was referred to our attention with a presumptive diagnosis of palmoplantar psoriasis. On examination, there were exuberant pinkish-red papules and plaques covered with a thick silvery scale in the palms, flexor surfaces of the wrists, and the medial longitudinal arches of the feet. Serological and histopathological analyses uncovered the diagnosis of syphilis. Clinical remission was obtained after treatment. A detailed review of the literature on syphili...

NEW YORK (Reuters Health)—The ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic has raised concerns about whether biologic therapy could make psoriasis patients more susceptible to SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind COVID-19. Mark Lebwohl, MD, from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and colleagues address this issue in a letter in the Journal of the... [Read More]

Conclusions: Guselkumab was superior to adalimumab for improvement in WPL and associated indirect cost savings, and its use may reduce the economic burden of psoriasis. PMID: 32233940 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Wu JJ, Jia X, Zhao Y, Carrico J, Brodtkorb TH, Mendelsohn A, Lowry S, Feldman SR, Armstrong A Abstract Objectives: To compare the cost-effectiveness of tildrakizumab with other commonly used biologics and apremilast as the first-line treatment for moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis from a US health plan's perspective.Methods: A 10-year cost-effectiveness model was developed to compare the incremental cost per extra month with a Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) 75 response. Patients were assumed to receive one of the treatments evaluated as their first-line treatment at the outset of the analysis. Nonresponders (PASI

In this study, we report an unexpected difficulty experienced when trying to clone HPV33 long control region (LCR) variants inEscherichia coli. Standard cloning strategies proved to be inappropriate to clone HPV33 LCR variants in the forward orientation into a eukaryotic reporter vector (pGL2-Basic). However, by slight modification of culture conditions (incubation at 25  °C instead of 37 °C), constructs containing the HPV33 LCR variants in the forward orientation were obtained. Transformation experiments performed with different HPV33 LCR constructs indicated that there is a sequence element in the 5&pri...

The chemokine receptor CCR4 has emerged as a skin-homing molecule important for the migration of T cells from the blood to the dermis. From our previous data on psoriasis patients, CCR4+ memory T cells emerged as a putative recirculating population between skin and blood. Here we focused our attention on the expression of CCR4 and skin-tropic molecules in the different stages of memory T cell differentiation. We analyzed the chemokine receptor profile in CD8+ and CD4+ CD45RA−CCR7+ (TCM) and CD45RA−CCR7− (TEM) cells. Subpopulations were further divided on the basis of CD62L expression, and the distribution...
