Abstract: The distinction between subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma (SPTCL) and lupus erythematosus (LE) panniculitis is remarkably challenging. Rimming by lymphocytes with an elevated Ki-67 cell proliferation index has been forwarded as a potential diagnostic finding in biopsies of SPTCL but has not been rigorously compared with biopsies from patients with LE panniculitis. Nineteen and 17 examples of SPTCL and LE panniculitis, respectively, were evaluated for periadipocytic rimming by lymphocytes expressing Ki-67, CD8, and βF1 and for attributes associated with LE, including clusters of CD123-positive ...

Abstract: The aim of this article is to introduce the museum we have at the Pathology Department, School of Medicine of the National University of Rosario, Argentina. The origin dates from to 1922 when Dermatology Professor Dr. Enrique P. Fidanza bought moulages at L'Hôpital Saint-Louis in Paris for the purpose of teaching. The collection included around 100 moulages and was worth approximately 1000 dollars. These pieces were exhibited at the Dermatology Department for many years and later moved to the Pathology Department where some pieces started being repaired, whereas others have deteriorated. The collection is...

This study is registered with, number NCT02708095.FindingsBetween March 24, 2016, and April 27, 2017, 314 patients were randomly assigned to receive placebo (n=105), baricitinib 2 mg (n=105), or baricitinib 4 mg (n=104). At week 24, resolution of SLEDAI-2K arthritis or rash was achieved by 70 (67%) of 104 patients receiving baricitinib 4 mg (odds ratio [OR] vs placebo 1·8, 95% CI 1·0–3·3; p=0·0414) and 61 (58%) of 105 patients receiving baricitinib 2 mg (OR 1·3, 0·7–2·3; p=0·39). Adverse events were reported in 68 (65%) patients in the p...

This is excerpted from TIME How Dogs Think: Inside the Canine Mind, now available at retailers and on Amazon. You speak dog better than you think you do. You may not be fluent; that would require actually being a dog. But if you went to live in a dogs-only world, you’d be pretty good at understanding what they’re saying. You can tell a nervous yip from a menacing growl, a bark that says hello from a bark that says get lost. You can read the body language that says happy, that says sad, that says tired, that says scared, that says Please, please, please play with me right now! Think that’s not a big deal?...

Epidemiologically prevailing antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is common among the younger population. APS is characterized by recurrent arterial and/or venous thrombosis and miscarriage. Although common among the youth; it has gained little or no consideration in its diagnosis in the Ethiopian clinical setup. We identified a woman with a movement disorder called chorea and recurrent pregnancy loss (abortions). She stayed eight years to be diagnosed with APS. As a devastating disease commonly seen in young patients with stroke, deep vein thrombosis and abortion, physician vigilance to detect APS is invaluable. [Ethiop. J. He...

The International Bullous Diseases Group has created this excellent consensus paper on diagnostic criteria for epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA). They start by explaining that EBA is a complex autoimmune bullous disease that has variable clinical presentations; multiple possible diagnostic tests mean that international consensus on the diagnosis of EBA is needed. A standardized system of face-to-face discussion followed by voting was used to achieve consensus. However, the differential diagnosis of bullous systemic lupus erythematosus was not addressed.
