The frontier between the human body and the environment is largely represented by the stratum corneum. It is obvious that the skin aspect on some body sites appears dry and rough in some predisposed individuals during winter season. The reductions in the outdoor temperature, ambient moisture and dew point are the main physical factors involved in this process. We present the aspects seen under ultraviolet light and scanning electron microscopy. Keywords : Stratum corneum - Dew point [less ▲]

Some recently introduced targeted treatments in cancerology are responsible for adverse effects on the skin. These events alter the patient well-being. Adequate dermocosmetic management allows to curb the unwanted skin conditions without interfering with the targeted therapeutic effects. However, evidence-based support for using dermocosmetic products as adjunctive cancer treatment remains scarce. It remains nonetheless that the clinical perception is unanimously favourable for such procedure. [less ▲]

Résumé : Les «Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinases» (MAPK) forment un ensemble coordonné de protéines cellulaires impliquées dans la prolifération, la différenciation, la migration et l’apoptose des cellules. Elles sont particulièrement activées, par certaines cytokines, hormones, le stress environnemental, ainsi que dans des cancers cutanés. Des agents pharmacologiques ciblés contre la cascade MAPK révolutionnent actuellement la cancérologie cutanée, du moins dans une phase transitoire du processus métastatique. Des traitements combinés sont susceptibles d’améliorer la survie médiane. [less ▲]

The COL VI mutations are responsible for a spectrum of myopathies. The authors report cutaneous ultrastructural alterations in a patient with COL6A2 myopathy. The changes include variations in size of collagen fibrils, flower-like sections of collagen fibrils, as well as thickening of vessel and nerve basement membranes. Electron microscopy of a skin biopsy contributes to the diagnosis of COL VI myopathies. [less ▲]

Introduction: A few non-invasive biometrological methods are available for monitoring skin stiffening in systemic scleroderma. Among them, the Cutometer(R) is used for years by several clinical teams. Objectives: To revisit the microscopic structure of the dermal fibrous networks in scleroderma and the relationship with changes in viscoelasticity. Methods: The suction method delivered by the Cutometer(R) was applied following the progressive stress-vs-strain modality. Results: The test procedure was sensitive enough to document the initial progression steps of acroscleroderma. Four stages were thus identified including i) the incipient, ii) the progressive, iii) the overt, and iv) the regressive acroscleroderma. Conclusion: The non-invasive determination of skin biomechanical functions is relevant both in routine clinical practice and in antisclerotic drug development. It is complementary although not a substitute for the determination of selected serum biomarkers. [less ▲]

Drug eruptions are frequently encountered and they represent "diseases of medical progress". They are expected in about 2% of treated patients. Their putative diagnosis is based on a set of imputability factors. Several distinct drug-induced skin disorders are identified. They are initially recognized from personal experience, but the implication to a specific drug derives from the collective experience of published evidence. Their histopathological aspect is often evocative or demonstrative for the nature of the dermatosis. Some drug eruptions follow an indolent course, while others are life-threatening. [less ▲]
