In this study, we investigated the clinical manifestations and risk factors for anaphylaxis in PFAS in Korean patients with pollinosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data were obtained from a nationwide cross-sectional study that previously reported on PFAS in Korean patients with pollinosis. Data from 273 patients with PFAS were collected, including demographics, list of culprit fruits and vegetables, and clinical manifestations of food allergy. We analyzed 27 anaphylaxis patients and compared them with patients with PFAS with oropharyngeal symptoms only (n=130). RESULTS: The most common cause of anaphylaxis in PFAS wa...

CONCLUSION: Despite their widespread use, triazoles seem to induce rare cutaneous hypersensitivity reactions, but the pathomechanisms, risk factors, diagnostic and management strategies, including skin tests and challenge tests, are little known and poorly investigated.

[Incontinence-associated dermatitis: a position paper]. Hautarzt. 2019 Sep 19;: Authors: Kottner J, Kolbig N, Bültemann A, Dissemond J Abstract Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) describes damage to the skin caused by repeated and prolonged contact with urine and/or feces. Patients of all ages can be affected; the diagnosis is preferably used in adults and adolescents. The predilection sites are perineal, perianal, the inner thighs and the convex areas of the buttocks. Increased moisture on the skin surface, increased pH, occlusion, feces digestive enzymes and repeated skin cleansing pr...

Periorificial dermatitis, mostly known as perioral dermatitis, is a benign inflammatory facial dermatosis which can be a severe burden and even disfiguring and psychologically disturbing. The disease still presents a challenge for physicians when it comes to etiology and appropriate therapy. Although a variety of extrinsic and intrinsic factors have been proposed as etiopathogenetic factors, none of these fully explain complex pathogenesis of the disease. There is more evidence that supports beliefs that the epidermal barrier dysfunction is an underlying main pathogenic factor that contributes to persistent cutaneous infla...

We report the case of a 48-year old woman with long-standing lepromatous leprosy of 15 years of evolution, with a bacterial index of 4 in the direct smear and the initial skin biopsy. The patient was treated with multidrug therapy for 32 months although the treatment recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) is only for 12 months. A skin biopsy was taken to determine if there was an active disease. We observed a diffuse dermal inflammation with numerous foreign body giant cells and vacuolated macrophages (Virchow´s cells). These cells contained granular acid-fast material that was also positive with immunohi...

CONCLUSIONS: Moderate-to-severe AD in adults represents an important cost for the society imposing a high financial burden for the NHS, but even more for patients and caregivers. Results from this study may support identification of potential factors impacting on the choice of new therapeutic options to improve the clinical and economic management of this devastating disease.

In this issue, Imai et al. (2019) provide new insights into the pathophysiology of AD-like inflammation using their model (Imai et al., 2013) and ask how ILC2s and basophils contribute to the IL-33 –induced AD-like inflammation. Their findings show that continuous expression of IL-33 in keratinocytes is sufficient to cause AD-like inflammation in mice, and that this occurrence is largely independent of adaptive immune cells and is mediated by basophils and ILC2s.
