Systemic diseases and infections, anecdotal complications and oddities associated with tattooing.
Abstract Complications associated with tattoos are mostly of cutaneous origin. They include chiefly ink allergy, local infection, benign tumors or malignant lesions and elective localization of various dermatoses. Tattoo-related systemic diseases and infections have more rarely been described, the most common being sarcoidosis and hepatitis C. However, unusual associations have also been reported, even though they may be anecdotal or likely unrelated with the procedure. Complications associated with tattoos include chiefly ink allergy, local infection, benign tumors or malignant lesions and elective localization o...

Tattoo allergy. Can we identify the allergen?
Abstract Allergic reactions in tattoos and permanent make-up are rare but they could be problematic. The clinical presentation and the histopathology are diverse and often confusing. Symptomatic treatment is frequently unsuccessful and invasive techniques can be required. Patch testing to identify the causative allergen is disappointing. The composition of the inks is complex; organic and inorganic colorants, auxiliary components and by-products must be considered. Physical factors such as ultraviolet and laser irradiation could play a role in haptenization of colorants in the skin. Clinical observation and advanc...

Tattoo And Epidural Analgesia: Rise And Fall Of A Myth.
Abstract Since 2002, it is unclear whether an epidural analgesia can be placed safely through a lower back tattoo. Theoretical risks of pigment tissue coring have led to precautionary measures and misconception that epidural analgesia should be excluded. We reviewed chronologically the 16 years of medical literature summarizing the so-called risks of epidural analgesia (EA) through lower back tattoo in parturient women. To date, no convincing complication has been ever reported after an EA through a tattoo. We hope this review will bring a closure to a 16 year-old "non-issue" that has poisoned and...

Chemical hazard of tattoo colorants.
r W Abstract Tattooing entails a high amount of tattoo colorants that is injected into skin. Tattoo colorants usually contain various substances of which the colouring component is the major ingredient that can be assigned to two different groups. Firstly, amorphous carbon particles (Carbon Black) are almost exclusively found in black tattoos. Secondly, tattooists use azo and polycyclic pigments to create nearly all colours of the visible spectrum. Due to their different but frequently complex chemistry, tattoo colorants usually contain various compounds like by-products and impurities which may exhibit health con...

The technical and artistic skills of the tattooist will determine the esthetic result and will help to guide the customers in their decision and choice of the tattoo. Although tattooing is by many considered as safe one should be are aware of the risks of complications related to this body modification technique. Some customers have a medical problem and some doubt about the safety of the procedure. People with increased risk of adverse events o...

Updates for the treatment of EGPA.
Abstract Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA, formerly Churg-Strauss syndrome) is the least frequent antineutrophil cytoplasm antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV). Major advances of our knowledge on its pathophysiology have revealed features of both AAV and eosinophilic disorders. The development of targeted biotherapies for both diseases opened new possibilities for EGPA management. In this review, we highlight the rationale underlying the routine treatment strategy, which relies mainly on corticosteroids, with immunosuppressant adjunction for severe disease. However, novel therapies are st...

Abstract Treatment of vasculitides has benefited from the results of several prospective clinical trials focusing on the evaluation of new drugs, therapeutic strategies and adjuvant treatments. In the field of autoimmunity, vasculitides are the group of diseases for which the most important medical progress has been made, combining advances in understanding the pathogenetic mechanisms, classification of the various entities and willingness to evaluate treatments. Several international groups have been actively involved in these tasks. The French Vasculitis Study Group was the first to design and organize prospecti...

Abstract Cutaneous vasculitis encompasses cutaneous components of systemic vasculitides, skin-limited variants of systemic vasculitides, such as IgA vasculitis or cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa, and single-organ cutaneous vasculitis, as individualized in 2012 in the Chapel Hill Consensus Conference Nomenclature. In this article, we focus on the management of skin-limited and single-organ vasculitides, often referred to, in clinical practice, as isolated "cutaneous leukocyctoclastic vasculitis", terms which may correspond to histological findings or descriptions, but are imprecise and not specific.

Updates in the treatment of Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis and Microscopic Polyangiitis.
Abstract There have been great advances in the management of ANCA associated vasculitis over the past decades. We have gone from an era where the disease was almost universally fatal to trying to prevent long term side effects of treatment regimens. With the ability to use pulse cyclophosphamide or rituximab as alternates to oral cyclophosphamide for induction of remission, side effects of therapy have been greatly reduced. New approaches have drastically changed our approach to maintenance and we now favor much longer durations of maintenance therapy as they are more successful in preventing relapse. Steroids hav...

Interstitial lung diseases in children.
Abstract Interstitial lung disease (ILD) in children (chILD) is a heterogeneous group of rare respiratory disorders that are mostly chronic and associated with high morbidity and mortality. The pathogenesis of the various chILD is complex and the diseases share common features of inflammatory and fibrotic changes of the lung parenchyma that impair gas exchanges. The etiologies of chILD are numerous. In this review, we chose to classify them as ILD related to exposure/environment insults, ILD related to systemic and immunological diseases, ILD related to primary lung parenchyma dysfunctions and ILD specific to infa...

Evolution and treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
Abstract Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic and devastating disease of unknown etiology, characterized by irreversible morphological changes, ultimately leading to lung fibrosis and death. In recent years, significant progress has been achieved in understanding the pathogenesis of IPF. Moreover, we assisted to the conceptual change of the pathogenic hypothesis that currently considers IPF as a primarily fibrotic driven disease. However, despite the undeniable progress, the diagnosis of IPF remains still very complex requiring the presence of a team of experts to achieve the highest level of diagnosti...
