The usual sites of herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 and 2 infections are orolabial and anogenital, respectiverly. HSV infection of the nipple and periareolar area is exceptional but probably underrecognized. Typical features include severe pain and erosive or ulcerated erythematous confluent clusters of lesions of the nipple and periareolar area. It is usually unilateral and not recurring. HSV infection of the nipple is originating from autoinoculation, sexual transmission or breastfeeding. Diagnosis is often delayed. The Tzanck smear is the most rapid and adequate method of dagnosis. Immunohistochemistry enables viral identification. The treatment relies on topical disinfection and oral antiviral therapy, such as aciclovir, famciclovir or valaciclovir. Scarring is uncommon.

Background With aging, the barrier repair kinetics following any weakening of the epidermal permeability barrier function is commonly slowed down. Objective To assess the recovery rate of the epidermal permeability barrier function following controlled stripping and applications of samphire and control formulations. Method In 12 healthy subjects older than 50 years, controlled stratum corneum (SC) strippings were used to increase the transepidermal water loss (TEWL) just above 15 g/m(2) /h. This procedure followed a 14-day skin preconditioning by daily applications of formulations enriched or not with a samphire (Crithmum maritimum) biomass. An untreated skin site served as control. The epidermal permeability repair kinetics was assessed for 14 days by daily measurements of both TEWL and the colorimetric value a*. Results A rapid (96 h) recovery to lower TEWL values was obtained at each of the samphire-preconditioned sites (0.1% serum, 0.05% cream, the serum-cream association, and 0.5% silicone oil). This process was significantly (P < 0.001) faster than that on both the placebo-preconditioned (silicone oil) and the untreated sites. No adverse inflammatory and sensory reactions were recorded. At the sites preconditioned by samphire formulations, the SC moisture (capacitance) was higher at completion of the study compared to inclusion. Conclusions The present experimental pilot study brings some clues supporting a beneficial boosting effect of samphire cell biomass on the kinetics of epidermal permeability barrier repair. [less ▲]

Under specific light illumination, particularly ultraviolet (UV) and near-UV light stimulation, the skin produces both specular light reflectance and, possibly, specific fluorescent emission. These properties offer diagnostic clues and disclose some peculiar functions of the skin. A series of superficial infections (erythrasma, some tinea capitis types, tinea/pityriasis versicolor, dermatophytoses, etc.) and pilosebaceous follicles enriched in Propionibacterium spp show fluorescence. This latter characteristic is downgraded or lost while on some anti-acne treatments. A quenching effect of fluorescence is observed following the application of sunscreens. The (pre)neoplastic areas prepared for methylaminolevulinate photodynamic therapy (MAL-PDT) show reddish fluorescence following drug metabolisation producing porphyrins by the abnormal activated cells. Of note, when using a recording sensitive CCD camera instead of casual visual observation, skin fluorescence may be superimposed on the specular reflectance of the incident light. With the current technology, these situations are not distinguished with confidence. Any harsh and scaly lesion appears brighter following yellowish specular light reflectance. Stratum corneum samplings collected on clear self-adhesive discs or cyanoacrylate skin surface strippings are conveniently examined ex vivo, taking advantage of the same optical properties. [less ▲]

The versatility of the clinical presentations of syphilis is large. A laboratory diagnosis is required in any case where a clinical assumption is raised. Two main diagnostic methods are available according to the lesion aspects and the staging of the disease. They rely on the recognition of the spirochete or on the identification of the immune response using specific and non specific serology tests. [less ▲]

L'eczéma chronique des mains représente une difficulté thérapeutique majeure en dermatologie, et en particulier, quand l'exploration allergologique ne permet pas d'identifier l'agent responsable de l'affection ou que l'éviction de celui-ci est difficile à obtenir pour raisons professionnelles. La première approche thérapeutique consiste en l'application de dermocorticoïdes. Cependant, leur utilisation chronique n'est pas recommandée en raison de leurs effets secondaires tels que l'atrophie cutanée. L'application topique des inhibiteurs de la calcineurine, comme le tacrolimus ou le pimecrolimus peut être envisagée comme traitement complémentaire. La photothérapie par UVB ou par PUVA est un traitement de deuxième ligne. Le méthotrexate et la ciclosporine sont des médicaments à réserver aux cas graves et multirésistants. L'alitrétinoïne, rétinoïde endogène et agoniste des récepteurs aux rétinoïdes, est une nouvelle thérapeutique contre l'eczéma chronique des mains qui ne répond plus aux dermocorticoïdes et est réfractaire aux autres options thérapeutiques. Plusieurs études randomisées, multicentriques et contrôlées contre placebo ont montré l'efficacité et l'innocuité de l'alitrétinoïne dans l'eczéma chronique des mains résistant aux traitements classiques.

The increasing number of allergic subjects and the alteration of their quality of life are major concerns of public health. Symptomatic treatments of allergic diseases are not always able to improve the patient’s complaints. Allergic exploration aims to identify IgE-dependant mechanisms and subsequently to prove the responsibility of the detected allergen in the allergic disease. The efficacy of the specific immunotherapy (SIT ) using allergens in either subcutaneous or sublingual forms has been proven in rhinitis, conjunctivitis, asthma and IgE-induced reactions to hymenoptera venom. The lack of training in allergology is an important reticence of general practitioners and specialists to prescribe SIT . Furthermore, the duration of the treatment and its important cost in Belgium (where, only venom SIT is reimbursed by the Social Security) interfere significantly with the compliance of the patients.
