Under specific light illumination, skin produces peculiar fluorescent aspects. Such property can be used to provide diagnostic arguments or to disclose some peculiar functions of the skin. Some superficial infections (erythrasma, tinea versicolor, dermatophytic tinea,..) reveal fluorescence that may be intense. The pilosebaceous follicles enriched in Propionibacterium spp show fluorescence. Such property is lost during some anti-acne treatments. A quenching effect is observed after application of sunscreens. The (pre)neoplastic areas prepared for dynamic phototherapy become fluorescent. Pyranine labeling of the stratum corneum exhibits fluorescence allowing the assessment of the renewal activity of the epidermis. [less ▲]

The medical history of a leg ulcer is spangled with episodes contributing to its chronicity before leading to possible healing. The complexity of the involved biological factors is undisputable. In order to simplify the management of these lesions, some doctors and nurses summarize the evolution of a leg ulcer in 3 phases according to the colour of the wound bed: black, yellow and red. The latter stage is commonly considered as a favourable condition for skin healing. We criticize such a concept by showing the anatomo-functional heterogeneity of the red wound bed. [less ▲]

The genus Bartonella is composed of a series of species and subspecies. Ten of them are responsible for human infections. The best-identified diseases are cat scratch disease (B henselae and possibly B clarridgeiae), trench fever (B quintana), bacillary angiomatosis (B quintana and B henselae), and the spectrum of verruga peruana, Carrion disease, and Oroya fever (B bacilliformis). Controversies exist about the implication of a few other microorganisms being involved in these diseases. Several other conditions have been associated with the presence of Bartonella spp, but these observations await confirmation. [less ▲]

Primary cutaneous lymphomas are distinguished by singular clinical, histological and prognostic features that are not shared by other lymphomas originating from the lymphoid tissues. This review is an update of the current concepts about the biology, diagnosis and treatment of mycosis fungoides, the most frequent entity among the primary cutaneous T cell lymphomas. It is currently established that mycosis fungoides originates from T lymphocytes normally homing the dermis. Such a situation implies that treatments at least in the initial stages of the disease, should primarily target the skin without searching for an impact on internal lymphoid tissues. [less ▲]

Hair loss, also called hair effluvium is often considered as an ancillary complaint. However, this situation is quite common in both genders. It is part of numerous clinical presentations in internal medicine and dermatology. Obviously, any correlation between a biologic abnormality and hair loss does not prove a relationship of causality. In absence of pathogenic diagnosis and causality criteria, chances are low to control adequately hair effluvium by a treatment given by the whims of fate. In addition, the risk and frequency of therapeutic inertia are increased. When the hair loss is not controlled and/or compensated by growth of new hairs, several types of alopecia inexorably develop.

In a manichean ideal, one expects unreservedly a clear-cut distinction between benign melanocytic neoplasms and the malignant ones. Such a distinction is commonly established by a clinico-pathologic confrontation for the majority of neoplasms. However, the boundaries may be blurred and uncertain for some lesions. We present an exploratory clinicopathologic algorithm of the border area between seemingly benign and seemingly malignant melanocytic neoplasms. The concept of a group of neoplasms called skin melanocytomas shed some light on such quandaries where the risk of misdiagnosis is quite high. [less ▲]

In a recent past, the incidence of syphilis has increased in various geographical regions, particularly in urban areas. In addition, the disease is particularly associated with HIV infection. In secondary syphilis, the diagnosis may prove to be particularly difficult to reach because the clinico-pathological resemblance with other skin disorders is commonly high. The risk of diagnostic roaming is associated with therapeutic inertia which is highly prejudiciable to the patient. [less ▲]

Skin contains somatic stem cells that generate keratinocyte, melanocyte and mesenchymal cell lineages. These somatic stem cells have traditionally been thought to be restricted in their differentiation and regeneration potential to the tissues in which they reside. This review focused on epidermal stem cells (ESCs). These cells are distinguished from transitory amplifier cells and post-mitotic cells. ESC are found in the interadnexal epidermis and in the bulge region of hair follicles. A series of ESCs markers are available, but increased sensitivity and specificity require further development.

IMPORTANCE OF THE FIELD: Alopecia, psoriatic arthritis, the metabolic syndrome, inflammatory bowel diseases and cardiovascular diseases may occur as skin psoriatic comorbidities. TNF-alpha antagonists are used to treat psoriasis. Adalimumab is one of the recognized active agents for this indication. AREAS COVERED IN THIS REVIEW: The current peer-reviewed publications and presentation of original findings. WHAT THE READER WILL GAIN: Adalimumab is active on recalcitrant psoriasis and some of its comorbidities, particularly arthropathies and Crohn's disease. However, the progression of the radiological alterations is limited with regression of the bony erosions. Psoriatic enthesopathy also regresses. Mortality associated with psoriasis arthropathy is on the decline. Crohn's disease, the most frequent inflammatory bowel comorbidity of psoriasis, is responsive to adalimumab. The effect of adalimumab on the metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular involvement is more erratic. The spectacular effects of adalimumab may be associated with some adverse effects. In particular, despite a marked reduction in the psoriasis area-and-severity index (PASI) score some new acute lesions of cutaneous psoriasis may develop corresponding to paradoxical psoriasis. Other potential adverse effects include infections, granulomas, rapid growth of cancers and occurrence of lymphomas. TAKE HOME MESSAGE: Adalimumab frequently controls moderate-to-severe forms of cutaneous psoriasis and some of its comorbidities. [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 ?

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 ▲]

Skin capacitance is an electrical property measurable at the level of the stratum corneum. Values are related to the moisture content of the tissue. Using the silicon image sensor technology, it has recently become possible to measure capacitance at 50 microm intervals on the skin surface. The resulting nonoptical picture corresponds to skin capacitance imaging. This novel tool for dermatologists highlights with precision the hollow skin surface patterns, including dermatoglyphics, the patterns of the shallow skin lines, and wrinkles. The topographic heterogeneity in skin surface hydration is made visible. In addition, the sweat gland and follicular openings are disclosed. Skin disorders induced by surfactants or presenting as hyperkeratotic areas, including some neoplasms, may show typical aspects. It is concluded that skin capacitance imaging brings added value to the clinical assessment performed by dermatologists. [less ▲]

The balding scalp is particularly exposed to sunlight, hence, the overall ageing process modulated by ultraviolet and near-infrared light may be increased at this location. The induced changes are better revealed under ultraviolet light examination. Any alteration in the epidermal maturation is potentially reflected by stratum corneum changes observed as disturbances on skin-capacitance imaging. [less ▲]
