Skin Barrier and Calcium.
Authors: Lee SE, Lee SH Abstract Epidermal barrier formation and the maintenance of barrier homeostasis are essential to protect us from the external environments and organisms. Moreover, impaired keratinocytes differentiation and dysfunctional skin barrier can be the primary causes or aggravating factors for many inflammatory skin diseases including atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. Therefore, understanding the regulation mechanisms of keratinocytes differentiation and skin barrier homeostasis is important to understand many skin diseases and establish an effective treatment strategy. Calcium ions (Ca2+) and their ...

Association of CDKAL1 Polymorphisms with Early-Onset Atopic Dermatitis in Koreans.
Conclusion: CDKAL1 (rs77152992) and ERBB2 (rs1058808) were deemed functionally interesting based on WES. Our case-control study suggests that the CC genotype of rs77152992 may be associated with increased eosinophil counts. It may enhance the risk of early-onset AD.

An Uncommon Presentation of Human Otoacariasis by Haemaphysalis longicornis.
Authors: Choi JY, Cho BK, Lee YB, Yu DS, Jun BC, Lee IY, Kim JW Abstract Ticks are obligate parasites on animals and sometimes humans. They usually suck the blood of the hosts and can carry various infectious diseases as a vector. Otoacariasis is the presence of ticks and mites within the ear canal and relatively common in domestic and wild animals. However, tick infestations of human ear canals are rarely reported in the scientific literature and hardly occur in developed countries.

A Study on Vitamin D and Cathelicidin Status in Patients with Rosacea: Serum Level and Tissue Expression.
Conclusion: Higher cathelicidin expression in rosacea supports the hypothesis that an abnormal inflammatory response of the innate immune system is important in pathogenesis of rosacea, but the role of high cathelicidin serum levels is complicated. Serum vitamin D was lower in patients with rosacea, although serum cathelicidin was higher than that of the controls. This suggests that the role of vitamin D level in the pathogenesis of rosacea merits further investigation. PMID: 29606809 [PubMed] (Source: Annals of Dermatology)

Disseminated Superficial Actinic Porokeratosis in a Patient with Psoriasis, after Long-Term Narrowband Ultraviolet B Phototherapy.
Authors: Sim CY, Shin JY, Lee SY, Park YL Abstract Porokeratosis is a rare epidermal disorder characterized by annular or linear hyperkeratotic plaques with slightly raised thread-like borders, and in most cases, atrophic centers. Disseminated superficial porokeratosis and disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis (DSAP), which primarily involve sun-exposed areas, are common types of porokeratoses. Histologically, a column of parakeratotic cells, a so-called cornoid lamella, is a hallmark of porokeratosis. Porokeratosis is considered to result from the inability to eliminate an abnormal keratinocyte clone indu...
