Reflectance confocal microscopy in Shiitake dermatitis.

[Reflectance confocal microscopy in Shiitake dermatitis]. Hautarzt. 2019 May 13;: Authors: Cussigh CS, Fink C, Winkler JK, Toberer F, Enk A, Sattler EC, Haenssle HA Abstract Shiitake dermatitis usually occurs 1-2 days after consumption of incompletely cooked or raw shiitake mushrooms and is characterized by linear, pruritic, erythematous papulovesicular rashes. It is caused by lentinan, a polysaccharide component of the cell walls of shiitake mushrooms. The histological examination showed an eczema-like morphology with spongiosis and lymphohistiocytic infiltrates. The results of reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) correlated with the histopathological investigations. Therefore, RCM can be used for non-invasive diagnostic confirmation of Shiitake dermatitis in the future. PMID: 31087127 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Atopic dermatitis (also known as AD or eczema) is a common skin disease that can cause intense and persistent itching and rashes. Skin creams or ointments are not suitable or effective for some patients with moderate-to-severe AD. In these patients, oral (taken by mouth) or injected medications may be required. Some of those oral or injected treatments could be toxic and often have unwanted side effects, especially when used for a longer period of time, so patients must be regularly tested to see whether those treatments are harming their blood or organs. Dupilumab is a newer injectable drug for treating ...

Malassezia is the most prevalent fungus identified in the human skin microbiota; originally described at the end of the nineteenth century, this genus is composed of at least 14 species. The role of Malassezia on the skin remains controversial because this genus has been associated with both healthy skin and pathologies (dermatitis, eczema, etc.). However, with the recent development of next-generation sequencing methods, allowing the description of the fungal diversity of various microbiota, Malassezia has also been identified as a resident fungus of diverse niches such as the gut or breast milk. A potential role for Mala...

ConclusionAlthough the clinical benefit of omalizumab in asthma and chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) has been established in several clinical trials, there are very little data about its effect on severe VKC. In addition to few previously reported cases we can report the rapid effectiveness of omalizumab in VKC clinically and in terms of quality of life. Randomized trials are needed to include omalizumab in third-line treatment of VKC for prevention of visual impairment and further sequelae such as corneal damage.

Abstract The Patient-Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM, 0-28 points) is a self-assessed, repeatable measurement tool for measuring atopic dermatitis (AD) severity. How-ever, whether POEM score is influenced by allergic comorbidities and whether POEM's severity banding is applicable in web-based surveys for AD remain unclear. A web-based questionnaire survey was conducted in 329 patients with AD. POEM, self-reported severity of AD, and comorbidity of allergic diseases including asthma, pollen rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, and food allergy were assessed. POEM scores were not affected by a history of comorbid allerg...

MA Abstract The prevalence of psychological disorders in patients with common skin diseases was assessed in a large representative sample of the French adult population. General health, as measured by the EQ5D score, was significantly lower if patients reported having rosacea, atopic dermatitis, urticaria, fungal infections, psoriasis or acne. The proportions of participants reporting being extremely anxious or depressed were higher in those who reported having rosacea, atopic dermatitis or contact dermatitis. Difficulties in sexual or conjugal life were frequently reported by people with psoriasis, atopic dermat...

CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that a vast majority of products taken into consideration contain at least one potential contact hapten. These findings indicate a need for patient education about potentially allergenic ingredients and stronger cooperation between academia and cosmetic manufacturers.
