Des effets cutanés indésirables peuvent survenir lors de chimiothérapies anticancéreuses. La morbidité peut être handicapante à des degrés divers. Certaines manifestations sont graves comme celles rencontrées lors de nécroses épithéliales et/ou vasculaires étendues. D’autres sont spécifiques à l’agent administré. Tel est le cas pour des éruptions acnéiformes induites par les antagonistes de l’EGFR. Dans la grande majorité des cas, les altérations de la structure de la couche cornée et de ses fonctions se résument seulement à un état de xérose. Parfois aussi, les altérations ne se décèlent qu’à l’examen histopathologique sans répercussion clinique manifeste. Pour chaque patient concerné, il convient d’identifier avec précision les effets indésirables de la chimiothérapie anticancéreuse afin de choisir les moyens les plus adéquats pour prévenir leur aggravation et les traiter au mieux. L’apport de l’examen dermatopathologique standard et fonctionnel est précieux au stade du diagnostic. [less ▲]

Cutaneous malignant melanoma represents one of the most dramatic skin cancers because its incidence is steadily growing in White populations. Of note, its metastatic risk and mortality dramatically increase when the primary neoplasm reaches about one millimeter thick. It is believed that angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis associated with cutaneous melanoma potentially influence the neoplastic progression of the primary tumor and its metastases. In some instances, both the intratumoral and peritumoral microvasculature are correlated to booming of the tumoral growth fraction. In addition, the vascular network serves as a migration path for the intravascular and perivascular neoplastic spread. Hence, the quantification of the microvasculature might help establishing a prognostic factor of evolution. Among the available methods, spectral analysis of immunohistochemical sections highlighting vessels helps defining the microvasculature distribution. The benefit of using spectral analysis is discussed and the modalities of application of this analytical method are scrutinized. [less ▲]

Le réseau microvasculaire de la peau joue des rôles physiologiques majeurs en oxygénant les tissus et en permettant des échanges thermiques finement régulés. Son parcours résistif et capacitif module les résistances périphériques au débit sanguin. La microvascularisation est sous l’influence de divers facteurs, mais globalement, elle semble presque immuable dans la peau saine. En revanche, certaines circonstances pathologiques engendrent des hyperplasies ou des hypoplasies vasculaires. Parfois aussi, le réseau semble garder son extension normale, mais sa structure intime est remaniée. Cette revue est un florilège d’aspects microscopiques associés à des perturbations majeures de la fonctionnalité vasculaire cutanée. [less ▲]

Le Soleil est à l’origine de la vie sur Terre. Le grand ensemble d’interactions biogéochimiques entre la vie, le sol, l’atmosphère et l’océan n’est pas sans rappeler la physiologie d’un grand organisme unique. Ce dernier a reçu le nom de Gaïa. Tout le fonctionnement de la biosphère qui en fait partie est largement dépendant de l’apport énergétique solaire. Celui-ci est diversifié car le spectre des rayonnements électromagnétiques est large et variable en intensité et en nature. Le réchauffement global de la Terre et le « trou d’ozone » sont sous les feux de l’actualité. De tels bouleversements sont-ils la préfiguration d’une apocalypse ? L’écologie et la dérive géoclimatique vont-elles influencer la dermatologie de demain ? [less ▲]

Superficial dermatomycoses are frequent conditions in humans and animals. Specific treatment modalities have been designed using a variety of different antifungal compounds. The need for antifungal susceptibility testing (AST) has been growing steadily over the last two decades due to the extending number of newer antifungal agents. Objective inter- and intraindividual comparisons of their respective efficacies are nearly impossible to perform in vivo. Currently, a series of standardized AST methods and interpretative guidelines have been designed. However, their clinical relevance for dermatomycoses is not consistent. The corneofungimetry bioassay was designed to test comparatively a series of antifungals on pathogenic fungi growing on sheets of human stratum corneum. Computerized morphometric assessments bring numerical values allowing statistical comparisons. Variants of corneofungimetry address more specific aspects related to fungal cell adhesion, fungitoxicity and lipid-dependent fungi. [less ▲]

Actinic keratoses are common lesions caused by the cumulative action of the sun’s rays on the skin of predisposed individuals. They generally develop in seniors, but they may be earlier in those who have an occupational activity outside or who spend a lot of spare time under the sun. The depletion of the ozone layer might also be involved. [less ▲]

Skin weathering and photoaging of the balding scalp have not attracted much investigative attention so far. However, the concept of field cancerization, in particular actinic field carcinogenesis, is likely applicable to this body region. The aim of the study was to finetune the epidermal actinic changes present on hairlessness scalp. The ultraviolet light-enhanced visualization (ULEV) method was used to assess a series of 50 healthy men older than 50 years with documented baldness for over 15 years. They were scrutenized looking for altered epidermal structures corresponding to photoaging-associated changes. Attention was focused on the faint mosaic melanoderma (FMM) and atypical scaliness. Observations were made on the scalp and forehead. FMM was recognized in each case. It presented either as a single manifestation of photoaging or it was associated with an unusual pattern of discrete rimmed scaliness. In this latter case histology and morphometry disclosed keratinocyte dysplasia. A similar scaly pattern was not seen on the forehead. Subtle skin surface changes were disclosed on long-standing sun-exposed balding scalps. The scaly aspect was distinct from dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis or any other common inflammatory scalp dermatosis. The presently described changes had not previously been described during early balding. It is suggested that the presently described condition may be associated with or indicative for actinic field carcinogenesis and incipient keratinocyte dysplasia. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Sensitive/reactive skin is regarded as a manifestation of sensory irritation. This susceptibility condition to various exogenous factors suggests the intervention of some neuropeptides and other neurobiological mediators. Mast cells are among the putative implicated cells. METHOD: The present immunohistochemical and morphometric study was performed on two groups of 36 gender- and age-matched subjects complaining or not from reactive skin as determined by electric current perception. In the mid upper part of the dermis, the numerical density in mast cells and the size of the microvasculature were assessed distinguishing the blood and lymphatic vessels. RESULTS: Globally, the distributions of data were large in reactive skin. This condition was characterized by a prominent increase in both the numerical density in mast cells and the overall size of the lymphatics. By contrast, no difference was found in the size of cutaneous blood vessels. More precisely, it appeared that a subgroup of people with reactive skin exhibited these changes contrasting with some other individuals whose data remained close to the normal range. CONCLUSION: Mast cells and lymphatics are probably involved in the process of sensory irritation affecting a subgroup of the population. [less ▲]
