Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a Th2 -driven inflammatory skin disease that has been associated with other autoimmune illnesses (AI) and has a well-known predisposition to infection with herpes simplex virus infection. Yet, few studies have evaluated the association between atopic dermatitis, autoimmune illness, and other human herpes virus (HHV) infections such as cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). We aimed to evaluate the association between AD, specific AIs, CMV, and EBV in a random sample of the Optum Clinformatics Data Mart database, a US administrative claims database...

Chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD) is a severe complication in long-term survivors of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. This disease is challenging to manage clinically due to a lack of validated tools to quantitatively measure skin sclerosis. The current gold standard for measuring skin sclerosis is the NIH Skin Score which has only moderate agreement among clinicians and experts. To more accurately assess skin sclerosis in cGVHD, the Myoton and durometer devices can be used to directly measure biomechanical parameters of the skin...

Skin pigmentation is regulated by intricate interaction of the dermis and epidermis. The extracellular components present in the dermis play a very important role in the maintenance of skin homeostasis. Therefore, our objective was to check the expression of various ECM components secreted by the dermal fibroblasts in the lesional skin and non-lesional skin of vitiligo patients. For this study, skin punch biopsies (4 mm) were collected from lesional skin (n = 12), non-lesional skin (n = 6) of non-segmental vitiligo patient's (NSV) and healthy control skin (n = 10)...

Music interventions in medicine have been shown to reduce anxiety and depression, decrease pain, and improve quality of life; however, a review of clinical music interventions in dermatology is lacking. Studies have shown that playing music for patients undergoing dermatologic procedures (Mohs surgery and anesthetic injections) can decrease pain and anxiety. Patients with pruritic conditions-such as psoriasis, neurodermatitis, atopic dermatitis, contact eczema, and situations requiring hemodialysis-have exhibited decreased levels of disease burden and pain when listening to preferred music, pre-chosen music, and live music...

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a complex inflammatory process with elevated levels of autoantibodies, eosinophils, neutrophils, and various cytokines. Hematological inflammatory biomarkers can reflect inflammatory state in various diseases. Up to now, the correlations of hematological inflammatory biomarkers and disease activity of BP remain unknown. The purpose of this study was to clarify the associations between hematological inflammatory biomarkers and disease activity of BP. The levels of neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), platelet-to-neutrophil ratio (PNR) and mean platelet volume (MPV) of 36 untreated BP patients and 45 age and gender matched healthy controls were detected by routine blood tests...

Non-physician clinicians (NPCs) are playing an increasing role in dermatologic patient care. This study expands upon existing workforce assessments of dermatology NPCs through the use of publicly-available Medicare datasets to better clarify prescribing patterns among independently-billing dermatology NPCs. The findings demonstrate prescribing similarities between NPCs and dermatologists for most medications, including biologic and immunosuppressive medications, although with higher use of oral prednisone, gabapentin, and hydroxyzine among NPCs...

Use of inpatient teledermatology increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. We surveyed the Society for Dermatology Hospitalists to better characterize the impact of COVID-19 on teledermatology use by inpatient dermatology providers, particularly on provider perceptions of teledermatology. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, 40% (8/20) of surveyed providers had used telehealth at their institution to help perform inpatient consults, while 90% (18/20) adapted use of teledermatology during the pandemic. 80% (16/20) reported that their opinion of teledermatology changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the vast majority (87...

Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) and metabolic syndrome (MetS) are associated with low-grade inflammation. Despite intensive research and various hypothesis, there is lack of specific pathomechanisms of urticaria. Previous studies have suggested low-grade inflammation in obesity which may be linked to urticaria. However, there is limited literature on association of MetS and CSU. So, this study was conducted to evaluate the association of MetS and its components in patients with CSU. This was a hospital-based and cross-sectional cohort study in which 481 patients of CSU and 240 age- and gender-matched controls were recruited...

Morbihan disease (MD) is considered a rare complication of rosacea, which is difficult to diagnose and challenging to treat. Here, we performed a systematic review of available case reports and case series to summarize key clinical and pathologic features of and successful treatment regimens for MD. We conducted a search of the PubMed/MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane electronic databases from their inception to the date of search on March 6, 2023. We found that MD affects patients in the fifth decade of life on average, more commonly reported in male than female (69% vs 31%)...

Dermatomyositis (DM) is a rare autoimmune disease characterized by distinctive cutaneous manifestations, often accompanied by muscle inflammation and interstitial lung disease. DM has a significant impact on quality of life (QoL) in patients, due to the physical and emotional symptoms caused by their disease. Despite this known emotional impact, there is no published literature capturing how adults with DM feel about their disease, from their perspective. We seek to better understand how cutaneous DM impacts patients in their daily lives...
