Etoricoxib is a new, highly selective cyclooxygenase (COX) 2 inhibitor, reported to have an increased cutaneous and systemic safety profile compared to the previous COX-2 inhibitors, including celecoxib, rofecoxib and valdecoxib. To the best of our knowledge, the present case of etoricoxib-induced erythema-multiforme-like eruption is the first reported in the literature. [less ▲]

Pimecrolimus is an immune downregulator that belongs to the class of calcineurin inhibitors. Its efficacy is recognized for the topical treatment of the mild to moderate types of atopic dermatitis. In addition, the drug shows activity in a series of other dermatitides. We report a review of the international literature about this topic. [less ▲]

The estrogen deficit occurring at menopause manifests itself under various modalities in the diverse organs and their functions. Skin does not escape this global involutive process. In addition to the effects of chronological ageing, sunlight exposure and other environmental and endogenous stimuli, the climacteric appears to exert some dramatic consequences on skin biology and aspect. The epidermis, its adnexae and the dermis are altered by this process. The epidermis may become xerotic and exhibits altered functions. The dermis thins out and its elasticity decreases in concert with the decline in bone mass. The skin microcirculation is impaired. These aspects are some of the better-worked out skin climacteric changes of which in turn seem to be stabilized or in part reversible with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). [less ▲]

Some cutaneous lesions accompany or reveal endocrine disorders. Identifying the endocrinopathy is very important because it sometimes allows corrective rather than symptomatic treatment. The most frequenly involved diseases include thyrotoxicosis, hypothyroidism, the auto-immune disorders of thyroid, Cushing syndrome, Addison disease, acromegaly, androgen-dependent disorders, hypopituitarism, hypoparathyroidism, pseudohypoparathyroidism and diabetes mellitus.

Dual cutaneous herpesvirus (alpha-alpha, alpha-beta infections are exceptional. We report the first case of a simultaneous alpha- and delta-herpesvirus infection corresponding to recurrent varicella and human delta herpesviruses 6 and 7-associated pityriasis rosea in an 8-year-old immunocompetent boy. This condition likely represents a stroke of misfortune, although a special link between two herpesvirus infections cannot be formally excluded. [less ▲]

Melasma is an endocrine-mediated facial hypermelanosis with epidermal and occasionally dermal components. We tested in a randomized double-blind design the effect of a whitening formulation (Thiospot intensive((R))) on this skin disorder. The product containing ethyl linoleate, thioctic acid, octadecenedioic acid, lactic acid and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate was applied twice daily for 3 months by 20 young women. Another control group of seven women received a non-skin lightening formulation. Clinical assessments were made at 1-month intervals. In addition, objective measurements of the hypermelanosis were performed using narrow-band reflectance spectrophotometry, image analysis of video-recorded ultraviolet light reflection (ULEV method) and photodensitometry of the corneomelametry test. A significant lightening effect was evidenced beginning the second month of treatment with the whitening formulation. No significant effect was observed with the control product. [less ▲]

Diaper dermatitis is the most frequent skin disorder of the newborn. Several clinical types are distinguished. The most frequent type results from increased fragility of the newborn buttock skin when covered by diapers. According to the mechanisms involved and the severity of the dermatitis, one can distinguish the intertrigo of the chubby baby, and the so-called "W", "Y" and "red panties" types of diaper dermatitis. When the effects of occlusion are not controlled by adequate absorption by the diapers maceration of the stratum corneum occurs. As a result, degradation of the skin barrier function takes place. In addition, the value of the coefficient of friction of the skin increases with epidermal weakening to rubbing. In addition, fecal enzymes alter urines and skin. Judicious hygiene measures and a correct choice of care and diapers are mandatory. Cutaneous colonisation by microorganisms, in particular the yeasts Candida spp, is the main complication. Adequate preventive and curative measures can combat diaper dermatitis with confidence. A miconazole paste allows to improve the tribological properties of the interface between diapers and the skin. It also corrects the degradation of the skin barrier function, reduces inflammation and abates the impact of Candida spp. in the pathogenesis of the skin disorder. [less ▲]
