The subcorneal pustular dermatosis of Sneddon and Wilkinson belongs to the heterogeneous group of neutrophilic dermatosis. This unique disorder is characterized by a superficial pustular eruption. The pustules are flaccid and aseptic. They develop predominantly on the trunk and in the groins, axillae and submammary areas. This disease is benign and chronic. However, it can be associated with some other conditions such as lymphoproliferative and myeloproliferative diseases. Dapsone is the treatment of choice to control the skin manifestations. [less ▲]

Alport's syndrome is a severe hereditary renal disease. Type IV collagen is abnormal in its molecular composition both in the kidneys and the skin. Immunohistochemistry performed on a conventional skin biopsy allows to prove the diagnosis in the affected subjects and in healthy women exhibiting the mutation on a single X chromosome. [less ▲]

A young woman presented two distinct vesiculobullous dermatoses sharing in common her husband's imputability. She suffered from contact dermatitis due to colophony used by her husband who was violinist. During her second pregnancy, pemphigoid gestationis was diagnosed. This autoimmune disease is directed to the father's HLA class II present on the placenta. The same antibodies also interact with the dermo-epidermal junction in the mother where they induce blisters.

Several compounds listed as illicit doping agents can express some effects on the skin. The cutaneous signs are diverse. The clue of the intake of such compounds can be supported by objective non-invasive biometrological assessments. However, such evaluations do not bring the irrefutable proof. The skin can also present unwanted reactions indicating intolerance to the doping agent. Such physiopathological manifestations are not limited to the sport competition, but can also affect some groups of the population searching for a look reminiscent of the ideal young and performing athlete.

BACKGROUND: Cutaneous sensorial perception is complex and proves to be difficult to quantify. Skin sensitivity to mechanical distension is largely unexplored. We have developed an original method aimed at quantifiying these physiological parameters.VOLUNTEERS AND METHODS: The study was performed on 24 adult volunteers aged 20 to 50 years. A Cutometer SEM 474 equipped with 2 and 4 mm diameter probes was used to exert a progressive or a steep suction on the cheeks. The intensities of both the suction and the skin deformation observed at the earliest moment the traction was perceived by the volunteers were recorded.RESULTS: The liminar sensorial detection under progressive suction force was 1.5 times lower when using the 4 mm probe than the 2 mm probe. Suction necessary for liminar sensation was 7 times lower under steep suction than in response to the progressive mode. The skin deformation corresponding to the liminar sensorial perception was almost constant (C=0.5 p. 100) for each subject. By contrast, a large inter individual heterogeneity unrelated to age was present.COMMENTS: Sensitivity of facial skin to stretching can be explored using a precise suction method. Perception is more related to the rate of traction than to the surface area submitted to suction. Cutaneous deformation, nearly constant for each individual, appears to be the main parameter. Steep and progressive suctions appear to stimulate distinct types of mechanoreceptors. The presently described method can be applied in cosmetology and in functional investigation of various diseases such as diabetes, acromegaly and atopic dermatitis among others. [less ▲]
