Seborrhoeic dermatitis and dandruff are common scalp conditions. In this study, we set out to explore a new method for rating both the severity of the scalp condition and the efficacy of scalp-care compounds. Scalp flakiness was sampled for 40 volunteers using adhesive-coated clear discs, with image analysis used to quantify the specular light reflectance (SLR) of the flakes Two ultraviolet (UV)-emitting charge-coupled device cameras (Visioscan VC98 and Visiopor PP34) were used. SLR clearly highlighted the flakiness with high contrast against a black background, and the recorded appearance could be conveniently submitted to the image-analysis system for quantification. In conclusion, SLR under UV illumination highlights scalp flakiness, allowing objective measurements. [less ▲]

Background: Artificial sources of restricted light wavelength, particularly tanning beds, are progressively gaining importance in photoaging. Objective: To assess the kinetics and the long-term evolution of skin pigmentation and tensile functions in sunbed worshippers over a period of 8 years. Methods: Photoaging was explored in women who were both sunshine and sunbed worshippers. A series of 65 phototype III women aged 31-46 years completed a 100-month survey. Quarterly assessments were performed on the forearms to measure (a) the skin color individual typology angle (ITA degrees ), (b) the extent in mottled subclinical melanoderma (MSM) using the ultraviolet light-enhanced visualization method and (c) the rheological properties of skin. Results: A progressive increase in both skin extensibility and hysteresis was observed, contrasting with a decrease in biologic elasticity. These rheological changes were correlated with the ITA degrees changes, but not with the MSM extent. The kinetics of evolution of each test variable were distinct over time. Discussion: This work is the first attempt at evaluating the kinetics of changes in physical parameters during a long period of frequent exposures to tanning sunbeds and sunshine for lifestyle purposes. The alterations were quite important in the color, MSM and rheological functions of the skin. [less ▲]

Background: Sweating is variably altered by physical exercise, diabetic neuropathy and antiperspirants. Methods: Skin temperature, skin surface water loss (SSWL), the Corneometer((R)) average capacitance (CMAC) and skin capacitance mapping (SCM) were measured before and after moderate physical exercise in 20 healthy subjects. The effect of 5% aluminium chloride hexahydrate (ACH) in a water solution was similarly tested. The same assessments were performed in 20 diabetic patients at rest. Results: Diabetic neuropathy appeared at rest as an increased (compensatory) SCM on the forearms without obvious modification on the hypohidrotic legs. On ACH sites after exercise, SCM revealed both a lowered number of active sweat glands and a lighter stratum corneum (SC) (dryness). In addition, CMAC and SSWL were decreased on ACH sites at rest and at completion of exercise. Conclusion: In diabetic neuropathy, the compensatory hyperhidrosis is more easily disclosed than the hypohidrosis. ACH affects both sweat excretion and the SC hydration. [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 ▲]

Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) is a rare gadolinium-dependent disorder of the skin and viscera. The aim of this study was to revisit some immunopathologic clues of NSF, including the characterization of glycosaminoglycans, cell tensegrity, and cell proliferation in the dermis. Immunohistochemistry was done using antibodies directed to vimentin, CD34, Factor XIIIa, calprotectin, alpha-smooth muscle actin, Ulex europaeus agglutinin-1 (UEA-1), and MIB1/Ki67 and to glycosaminoglycans, including CD44 var3, versican, and perlecan. The vimentin+ cell density was markedly increased. The vast majority of them corresponded to CD34+ or Factor XIIIa+ dermal dendrocytes (DD) showing distinct cell tensegrity. CD34+DD were slender, elongated, and usually scattered in the dermis but focally clustered in nodular collections. By contrast, Factor XIIIa+ was plump with squat dendrites showing no evidence for being under mechanical stress. Cells in the vicinity of the microvasculature were rounded and exhibited calprotectin immunoreactivity typical for monocyte/macrophages. The microvasculature highlighted by UEA-1 and alpha-smooth muscle actin looked unremarkable. The cell proliferation highlighted by the MIB/Ki67 immunoreactivity was unusually high (>20%) in the interstitial stromal cells. Stromal cells enriched in versican were plump, abundant, and seemed interconnected each other by a dense network of dendrites. By contrast, the immunolabeling for perlecan and CD44 var 3 was unremarkable. In conclusion, the cell population involved in NSF seemed phenotypically heterogeneous, and its growth fraction was clearly boosted in the skin. The intracellular load in versican was prominent. The aspect of cell tensegrity did not suggest the influence of mechanical stress putting stromal cells under tension in the dermis. [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 ▲]

Actinic keratosis should no more be considered as a single neoplasm calling for an individual treatment. The concept of actinic photocarcinogenesis presently turns upside down the perception of skin cancers induced by nonionizing electromagnetic radiations. Currently, the clinician should cope with the whole skin area that has been damaged by chronic exposures to the visible and the invisible spectrum of the light. The therapeutic archetypes are 5-fluorouracile 5% and imiquimod 5% carefully applied to the skin area. [less ▲]
