Dermatophytes infect the stratum corneum, nails and hair and are the most common agents of superficial mycoses in humans and animals. At present the genome of seven species has been sequenced. Between 22.5 and 24 Mb, the dermatophyte genomes are smaller in size than those of Coccidioides spp., Histoplasma spp. and Aspergillus spp. They are enriched for particular families of genes encoding secreted proteases, fungal specific kinases and proteins containing the LysM domain that is known to bind chitin. Different tools were recently developed to improve genetic analyses of dermatophytes, including efficient systems for targeted gene inactivation, gene silencing and broad transcriptional profiling techniques. Unexpectedly, gene expression profiles in the skin and hair of infected guinea pigs were found to be very different from those during in vitro growth using hard keratin as a substrate. Instead of the major in vitro expressed protease genes, others were found to only be activated in the skin of infected animals. In other words, the expression of putative virulence genes in dermatophytoses is more complex than previously assumed and likely depends on the site and type of infection. Further broad transcriptional profiling approaches during infections will give new insights into the pathogenic mechanisms of dermatophytes. [less ▲]

Dermatophytes are among the common fungal agents implicated in superficial skin infections. The anthropophilic dermatophyte Trichophyton rubrum is still the most frequent causative agent worldwide but the prevalence of several species of dermatophytes varies through different areas around the world. This review summarizes the current status of dermatophytes infection in Europe, Africa, Asia and America and gives an overview of the molecular biology laboratory methods currently available for the diagnosis of dermatomycoses.

Le vieillissement de la peau se marque à terme par une atrophodermie, parfois sévère. La corticothérapie, qu’elle soit systémique ou topique, exerce un effet atrophiant qui copie l’effet du grand âge. Cet état d’atrophodermie a été décrit comme la «peau transparente» il y a une quarantaine d’années, et il a reçu plus récemment la nouvelle dénomination de dermatoporose. Il est connu de longue date que cet état entraîne des conséquences cliniques parfois majeures qui conduisent à des lésions diverses sous forme de purpura de Bateman, de cicatrices stellaires, et de plaies faisant suite à des traumatismes mineurs.

Some typical distributions of skin lesions represent a helpful sign for the differential diagnosis in dermatology. Indeed, some dermatoses, affecting the skin, nails or mucosae, display an annular or linear disposition. The linear pattern can be explained by several factors. The dermatosis can follow either a nerve traject, vascular or lymphatic vessels, or embryological lines. Exogenous factors, including traumatisms or automutilations, can also contribute to this particular distribution. In this review, the principal linear dermatoses are discussed together with their pathogenesis. [less ▲]

La dermite séborrhéique est une affection très fréquente dont la pathogénie n’est pas encore complètement élucidée. Le rôle des levures Malassezia spp a longtemps été débattu mais semble actuellement indiscutable. Un défaut local des mécanismes de contrôle de la flore commensale est vraisemblablement à l’origine de la prolifération pathologique de ces micro-organismes. Les traitements actuels ciblent ces agents, la réponse immunitaire de l’hôte, ou les deux à la fois. [less ▲]

Some recently introduced targeted treatments in cancerology are responsible for adverse effects on the skin. These events alter the patient well-being. Adequate dermocosmetic management allows to curb the unwanted skin conditions without interfering with the targeted therapeutic effects. However, evidence-based support for using dermocosmetic products as adjunctive cancer treatment remains scarce. It remains nonetheless that the clinical perception is unanimously favourable for such procedure. [less ▲]

Since the early 1900s, mesomycetozoan parasites have been reported in both European anuran and caudate species. These reports have primarily been descriptive, which has made assessing the impact of these parasites on host populations difficult. Anecdotal reports of Dermocystidium-like parasites are becoming widespread across Europe, possibly indicating that these mesomycetozoan parasites are increasing in distribution and/or abundance. This highlights the need for further investigations into the occurrence, pathogenesis and effects on host health of these parasitic infections for free-living amphibian populations, particularly those which are already stressed or threatened by other factors. Here we report the results of pathological, microbiological and molecular investigations used to characterize unidentified skin lesions in palmate newts (Lissotriton helveticus) from Larzac, France. We confirm that the lesions are the result of infection with a novel dermocystidium-like parasite, which is related to Amphybiocystidium ranae. We also show that the same parasite is distributed across several newt breeding sites. The lesions that result from infection with this parasite range from single or few vesicular or nodular cutaneous lesions to multiple coalescing skin ulcers with extensive hemorrhages. The latter have not been previously described in amphibians due to mesomycetozoan parasitic infection. Dermocystid DNA was detected only in newts that showed lesions, providing comparative evidence of the parasite's pathogenicity. We discuss the potential significance of the presence of this pathogen in the context of the population health of palmate newts. [less ▲]
