Role of occupational and recreational sun exposure as a risk factor for keratinocytic non-melanoma skin cancers: an Italian multicentre case-control study.
Authors: Gallo R, Guarneri F, Corazza M, Schena D, Stingeni L, Foti C, Patruno C, Signori A, Parodi A, SIDAPA Study Group on NMSC Abstract BACKGROUND: Sun exposure is the main external risk factor for keratinocytic non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC). Outdoor workers are at increased risk but the relationship of NMSC with occupational solar exposure is often confounded by concurrent recreational sun exposure. We compared the percentage of outdoor workers in NMSC patients versus controls without history of NMSC and assessed occupational and recreational sun exposure in both groups, evaluating also other risk factors and...

Italian guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of classic and iatrogenic Kaposi's sarcoma.
Authors: Brambilla L, Genovese G, Berti E, Peris K, Rongioletti F, Micali G, Ayala F, Della Bella S, Mancuso R, Calzavara Pinton P, Tourlaki A Abstract Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is a lymphangioproliferative disorder associated with human herpesvirus 8 (HHV8) infection. Four clinical subtypes are recognized: classic, endemic, epidemic (HIV-related) and iatrogenic. KS diagnosis is based on clinical features, histopathological assessment, and HHV8 serology. Classic KS is usually skin-limited and has a chronic course, while the iatrogenic variant may show mucosal, nodal or visceral involvement. Clinical staging is fundamen...

Autoreactive T cells in pemphigus. Perpetrator and target.
Authors: Scarsella L, Pollmann R, Amber KT Abstract Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is an autoimmune blistering disease, in which autoantibodies against epidermal cadherins, such as desmoglein (Dsg)1 and Dsg3, lead to the development of blisters and erosions on the skin and the mucous membranes. Autoreactive CD4+ T cells are essential for the induction and perpetuation of the disease by interaction with B cells producing autoantibodies. PV has a strong genetic association with certain human leucocyte antigen (HLA) alleles with being HLA-DRB1*04:02 and DQB1*05:03 the most prevalent in patients. Recently, genome-wide associa...

Artificial intelligence for melanoma diagnosis: a review of published studies until 2020.
Authors: Tschandl P Abstract Convolutional neural networks (CNN) have shown unprecedented accuracy in digital image analysis, which can be harnessed for melanoma recognition through automated evaluation of clinical and dermatoscopic images. In experimental studies, modern CNN architectures perform single image analysis at the level of dermatologists and domain-experts, also for multi-class predictions including a multitude of possible diagnoses. This may not necessarily translate to good clinical performance, and reliable randomised controlled prospective clinical trials for modern CNNs are essentially missing. Wea...

It typically affects male teenagers with a pre-existing acne. Although the pathogenetic mechanism has not been established yet, a role of genetic, abnormal immunologic response, drugs intake, hormonal imbalance and viral infection, as causal factors, has been identified. AF may ...

Apremilast and its role in psoriatic arthritis.
Authors: Sandhu VK, Eder L, Yeung J Abstract Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a seronegative inflammatory arthritis often observed in patients with skin psoriasis. Treatment of PsA, especially peripheral PsA, has typically relied on disease-modifying anti-rheumatic agents (DMARDs); however, these agents have limited efficacy and considerable associated toxicity. More recently, monoclonal antibodies (biologic agents) have revolutionized management of immune-mediated diseases; however, these therapies carry a high cost and require parenteral administration. Apremilast, a novel oral DMARD, was approved by the European Uni...

CONCLUSIONS: There was a lack of uniformity in the management of patients and an increasing awareness of dermatologists on the use of systemic therapies, in particular of methotrexate, which is no longer exclusive to rheumatologists. Methotrexate causes stabilization and improvement of the clinical signs, but topical creams are still considered adjuvant or maintenance therapies during/after the use of systemic drugs.

Several autoantibodies have been detected in serum of PAMS patients, including anti-plakins, anti-alpha-2-macroglobulin like 1, and anti-desmogleins autoantibodies. The mortality rate of PAMS is up to 50%. This is due on the one hand to the poor response to treatments and on the othe...
