In utero presentation of aggressive systemic mastocytosis in a neonate
We present a rare case of congenital aggressive systemic mastocytosis. The patient was a 37‐week‐old male, born by caesarean section owing to hepatosplenomegaly and ascites diagnosed in utero, who exhibited extensive cutaneous and systemic manifestations of mastocytosis at birth. Mutation analysis of c‐KIT identified D816V mutation in exon 17. Although initial bilateral bone marrow aspirates demonstrated no mast‐cell infiltrates or haematological neoplasm, subsequent bone‐marrow biopsies postmortem exhibited multifocal mast‐cell aggregates. Clinical course was complicated by bacteraemia and cardiorespiratory fa...

Long ‐term complications of Stevens–Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis (SJS/TEN): the spectrum of chronic problems in patients who survive an episode of SJS/TEN necessitates multidisciplinary follow‐up
Summary Stevens–Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are severe adverse reactions to drugs that cause a life‐threatening eruption of mucocutaneous blistering and epithelial sloughing. While the acute complications of SJS/TEN are well described, it is increasingly recognized that survivors may develop delayed sequelae, some of which can be associated with significant morbidity. Studies of long‐term SJS/TEN outcomes mostly focus on mucocutaneous and ocular complications. However, other internal organs, such as the respiratory tract and gastrointestinal tract, can be affected. Psychological se...

Is universal HLA ‐B*15:02 screening a cost‐effective option in an ethnically diverse population? A case study of Malaysia
ConclusionsUniversal HLA‐B*15:02 screening is unlikely to be a cost‐effective intervention in Malaysia. However, with the emergence of an ethnically diverse population in many other countries, this may render HLA‐B*15:02 screening a viable intervention when an increasing proportion of the population is at risk and an equally effective yet safer antiepileptic drug is available.

Not every patient needs a triglyceride check, but all can get pancreatitis: a systematic review and clinical characterization of isotretinoin ‐associated pancreatitis
Summary Monitoring of triglycerides for patients on isotretinoin is practised primarily to avoid hypertriglyceridaemia‐associated pancreatitis. The aim of this study was to describe clinically the published cases of hypertriglyceride‐associated pancreatitis. A comprehensive search strategy using MEDLINE, Embase and grey literature was conducted (1960 to January 2016) to identify all case reports of isotretinoin‐associated pancreatitis and all relevant studies of isotretinoin and triglycerides for any indication (≥ 20 patients). Terms related to isotretinoin, triglycerides and pancreatitis were searched with all av...
