AbstractAzole antifungals are first-line options in the prophylaxis and treatment of invasive fungal infections. They are often used for prolonged (weeks to months) periods of time, particularly in patients with hematologic malignancies, or in those who have received a solid organ or hematopoietic stem cell transplant. Long-term use of azoles is associated with hepatotoxicity and hormone-related effects, including gynecomastia, alopecia, decreased libido, oligospermia, azoospermia, impotence, hypokalemia, hyponatremia, and (rarely) adrenal insufficiency. Voriconazole and posaconazole have been associated with peripheral ne...

Discussion MDSCs violently emerge in pathological conditions in an attempt to limit potentially harmful immune and inflammatory responses. Mechanisms supporting their expansion and survival are deeply investigated in cancer, in the perspective to reactivate specific antitumor responses and prevent their contribution to disease evolution. These findings will likely contribute to improve the targeting of MDSCs in anticancer immunotherapies, either alone or in combination with immune checkpoint inhibitors. New evidence indicates that the expansion of myeloid cell differentiation in pathology is subject to fine-tuning, as its...

Authors: Aggarwal A, Balogun R, Carr TF, Desai AP, Jie T, Pan JJ Abstract 31 years old female with a history of contact dermatitis, eczema, allergic rhinitis, pernicious anemia, alopecia areata and latent tuberculosis was treated concurrently with methotrexate along with isoniazid and pyridoxine. Five months into the therapy she developed acute onset jaundice progressing into fulminant liver failure with altered mentation and worsening liver function tests. Extensive workup including serological and histopathological evaluation revealed drug-induced liver injury as the etiology of her liver failure and she underwen...

However, there is no evidence-based systematic review on the safety and efficacy of anti-PD-1 antibody in treating lymphoma.

The role of dermatologists in the care of patients with graft-vs-host disease (GVHD) following allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation varies greatly. In the acute inpatient setting, we are typically called on to perform a “diagnostic” skin biopsy of a nonspecific exanthem, but systemic management may be deferred to the primary transplant team. In the chronic setting, the skin features of GVHD are highly polymorphic and include papulosquamous eruptions, alopecia, dyspigmentation, pruritus, edema, sclerosis, fascii tis, bullae, or ulceration. Given these protean skin manifestations, ideally dermatolog...

IS, Bran EL Abstract Alopecia areata (AA) is a polygenic autoimmune disease. The immunosuppressant drugs taken by patients who undergo solid organ transplantation might therefore be useful in its control. The literature, however, contains conflicting information in this regard. This contribution describes seven patients with AA, all of whom had undergone solid organ transplantation and were receiving treatment with immunosuppressant drugs. Patterns were sought that might suggest whether the administration of these drugs was affecting the appearance, progress, or resolution of AA. Only seven out of 469 patients (in...
