BACKGROUND: Corneocyte accumulation (hyperkeratosis, xerosis) commonly occurs in the stratum corneum (SC) of the feet of diabetic patients, as well as menopausal women. OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of a 2.5% chitin-glucan formulation with its placebo, and commercially available glycerol formulations. METHODS: This two-step controlled double-blind, randomized, intra-individual study was performed in 30 type 1 and 2 diabetic menopausal women suffering from xerosis of the feet. The formulations were applied once daily for 3 weeks. Electrometric assessments were performed on three sites of the feet at entry in the study, at weekly intervals during the treatment phase, and in a 2-week follow-up out of treatment. Positive controls consisted in two commercially available formulations enriched in glycerol. RESULTS: Data revealed an unequivocal benefit provided by the 2.5% chitin-glucan formulation compared with placebo. The electrometric values were significantly higher at each evaluation time during both treatment and follow-up phases. The two glycerol-enriched formulations showed slightly different kinetics of SC moisturization. A steep increase was followed by a plateau level and a rapid decline after stopping the treatments. CONCLUSION: The increased moisturization of the SC of the sole probably improves the desquamation process and reduces xerosis of the soles. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Radiodermatitis in its acute and chronic presentations represents a set of specific adverse effects resulting from ionizing radiations. Skin-field cancerization is another condition associated to or independent of clinically recognizable radiodermatitis. This condition leads to the risk of later occurrence of skin malignancies. METHOD: Review of the current and most pertinent peer-reviewed publications with the addition of personal perspectives. RESULT/CONCLUSION: The presence of field cancerization encompasses subclinical changes, precursors of malignant alterations, as well as single or multiple primary neoplasms and local neoplastic recurrences. These tumours commonly require repeated treatments over time and cause significant morbidity. In general, specific tumour-directed treatments using ablative or destructive techniques require regular follow-up and screening for disclosing any further neoplasm. Another strategy corresponding to field-directed treatment targets a larger area of irradiated skin to reduce the risk of developing second neoplasms and local recurrences. Imiquimod is an immune response modifier of the imidazoquinoline class. It is the archetype drug used to control skin-field carcinogenesis. Cryotherapy, topical 5-fluorouracil, diclofenac and conventional photodynamic therapy are supposed to bring effects differing by their indications, healing rates and remission rates. The possibility of inducting a radiation recall dermatitis by some of these therapeutic modalities has not been thoroughly evaluated, and at present cannot be ruled out with confidence. [less ▲]

Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease of unknown aetiology characterised by the formation of non caseating epithelioid cell granuloma, which can occur in virtually any organ. The involvement of the heart is an important prognostic factor in sarcoidosis. Early treatment prevents irreversible damage of the heart and seems to be associated with better prognosis. [less ▲]

Erythema multiforme (EM) is an immune-mediated disease categorized into EM minor and EM major, also called Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), not to be confused with toxic epidermal necrosis (TEN), as physiopathological pathways are throughly different. Mycoplasma pneumoniae is an intracellular germ, generally responsible for atypical respiratory infections. It may be associated with erythema multiforme, eventually recurrent, illustrated by the present case report. [less ▲]

Mechanobiological stimulation of the skin influences melanocyte activity. The clinical impact on melanocytes can be perceived by dermoscopy. Our aim was to assess the orientation of Langer's lines using the combination of ultrasound shear wave propagation and dermoscopy in 70 adults of darker skin complexion. On the back, 44/70 patients showed a honeycomb melanotic pattern without any main orientation. By contrast, a streaky parallel pattern of melanotic lines oriented in the direction of Langer's lines was found in 26/70 patients. Indeed, the maximum speed of ultrasound propagation was found parallel to the main orientation of the laddering melanotic pattern. The parallel melanotic pattern probably reflects the main orientation of the epidermal rete ridges aligned in the direction of Langer's lines. This aspect could be ascribed to the deepening of these structures and/or to mechanobiology affecting melanocytes. The aspect is reminiscent of that previously described in striae distensae and atrophic scars. [less ▲]

The human dermis contains a series of dendritic cells which express different phenotypes including Factor XIIIa immunoreactivity. This compound is related to a blood coagulation factor participating in angiogenesis, in the final stages of the clotting cascade and in wound healing. In normal skin, Factor XIIIa is expressed in specific dermal dendrocytes (DD) derived from the monocyte/macrophage lineage or from a mesenchymal origin. DD are located predominantly around the microvasculature in the adventitial dermis, at the dermo-epidermal junction, and around skin appendages, but normally not within the epidermis. Increased numbers of Factor XIIIa+ DD are present in a host of specific cutaneous inflammatory and fibrotic conditions. In tumor pathology, immunophenotypic differences are found between dermatofibromas and other fibrohistiocytic entities, most notably dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. In addition, Factor XIIIa+ DD are likely to be involved in the progression and regression of some malignancies including cutaneous melanoma and basal cell carcinoma. [less ▲]

Contrasting with many animals, the human physiological capacity to resist to cold is quite limited. Severe cold exerts its major physiopathological effects on the skin and the whole body. The skin and body thermoregulations become quite rapidly unsatisfactory. Cold is then responsible for a series of dermatoses which could, however, be often prevented by simple means. The severity and the duration of exposure to cold, combined to wind speed, altitude and environmental hygrometry condition the nature and severity of the potential disorders. Some lesions may remain moderate in severity, self-limited and transitory. Others lead to irreversible damage with necrosis of the skin and the deeper tissues. Death secondary to hypothermia is the risk of performing some outdoor activities in inhospitable and extreme cold conditions. [less ▲]
