Cutaneous lymphomas are rare in young patients and are mostly represented by mycosis fungoides and its variants and CD30+ lymphoproliferative disorders (lymphomatoid papulosis [LYP] and anaplastic large T-cell lymphoma). We report our observations in a series of 69 patients less than 20 years of age who presented either with primary cutaneous lymphoma (n = 62) or with secondary manifestations of extracutaneous disease (n = 7). Clinicopathologic features permitted classification of the ...

The presence of a granulomatous reaction in lesions of cutaneous lymphomas has been described in the past in several cases. Especially in mycosis fungoides, a "granulomatous" variant of the disease has been well characterized. We studied the clinicopathologic features of cutaneous lymphomas with prominent granulomatous reaction, including both cutaneous T-cell lymphomas and B-cell lymphomas (primary cutaneous lymphoma 22, secondary cutaneous lymphoma one). Biopsies of 23 patients with ...

Specific Cytotoxic T Lymphocyte Responses Against Melan-A/MART1, Tyrosinase and Gp100 in Vitiligo by the Use of Major Histocompatibility Complex/Peptide Tetramers: the Role of Cellular Immunity in the
[ PUBLICATION ]
Vitiligo is a common skin disease characterized by the presence of well circumscribed, depigmented, milky white macules devoid of identifiable melanocytes. Although the detection of circulating anti-melanocytic antibodies and of infiltrating lymphocytes at the margin of lesions supports the view that vitiligo is an autoimmune disorder, its etiology remains unknown. In particular, it is still a matter of debate whether the primary pathogenic role is exerted by humoral or cellular abnormal ...

BACKGROUND: Mycosis fungoides (MF) is a diagnostic challenge, frequently needing multiple and sequential biopsies to establish the diagnosis.
METHODS: A total of 8 lesions from 7 patients either with a history of biopsy-proven MF or with lesions clinically suggestive of MF were imaged with RCM followed by a skin ...

BACKGROUND: Several dermoscopic and in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) diagnostic criteria of lentigo maligna (LM)/lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM) have been identified. However, no study compared the diagnostic accuracy of these techniques.
OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the diagnostic accuracy of dermoscopy and RCM for LM/LMM using a holistic assessment of the images.
METHODS: A total of 223 facial lesions were evaluated by 21 experts. Diagnostic accuracy of the clinical, dermoscopic ...

Decreased levels of metalloproteinase-9 and angiogenic factors in skin lesions of patients with psoriatic arthritis after therapy with anti-TNF-α
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: Inflammation represents an early and key event in the development of both the cutaneous psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Compelling evidences indicate that the production of TNF-alpha plays a central role in psoriasis by sustaining the inflammatory process in the skin as well as in the joints. Among the multiple effects produced by TNF-alpha on keratinocytes, the induction of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), a collagenase implicated in joint inflammatory arthritis which ...

Acne vulgaris severity graded by in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy and optical coherence tomography
[ PUBLICATION ]
INTRODUCTION: Acne is an inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous unit, which can be investigated in vivo using reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) and optical coherence tomography (OCT).
OBJECTIVES: By means of RCM and OCT to identify morphological characteristics of acne that may be associated with clinical acne severity.
METHODS: Patients with mild to moderate facial acne (n = 14, Investigators Global Assessment scale, IGA 1-3), and healthy participants (n = 7, IGA 0) were included ...

Preliminary evaluation of in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy features of discoid lupus erythematosus
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) can simulate other inflammatory diseases both clinically and histologically. In vivo reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a noninvasive, reproducible imaging technique already reported to be useful in the evaluation of several inflammatory skin conditions such as contact dermatitis, psoriasis and Darier disease.
OBJECTIVES: The aims of our study were to define RCM features of DLE and to evaluate its feasibility in biopsy site ...

Effective Therapy with Anti‐TNF‐α in Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis Is Associated with Decreased Levels of Metalloproteinases and Angiogenic Cytokines in the Sera and Skin Lesions
[ PUBLICATION ]
Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) plays a central role in sustaining the inflammatory process in the skin as well as in the joints of patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. In fact, biological therapies based on monoclonal antibodies against TNF-alpha have been proven to be effective on both the arthropathy and the cutaneous symptoms of the disease. Among the several effects produced by TNF-alpha on keratinocytes there is the induction of expression of MMP-9, a matrix ...

Monoclonality of Intraepidermal T Lymphocytes in Early Mycosis Fungoides Detected by Molecular Analysis after Laser-Beam-Based Microdissection
[ PUBLICATION ]
The identification of neoplastic lymphocytes in early lesions of mycosis fungoides is difficult because of the scarcity of the infiltrate and the presence of reactive T lymphocytes admixed with neoplastic cells. Molecular analysis of the T cell receptor gene rearrangement using the polymerase chain reaction technique demonstrates monoclonality only in a proportion of these cases. The exact location of the malignant clone is unknown, and at present it is not clear whether neoplastic cells ...

In vivo characterization of pustules in Malassezia Folliculitis by reflectance confocal microscopy and optical coherence tomography. A case series study
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Malassezia Folliculitis (MaF) is an inflammatory condition of hair follicles caused by Malassezia yeast. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) are imaging technologies enabling in vivo visualization of superficial skin layers. This study explores morphology of pustules in MaF imaged by OCT and RCM.
METHODS: Patients with microscopically verified MaF were included in this case series. Morphology was evaluated qualitatively ...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, relapsing, inflammatory skin disease characterized by painful inflamed nodules, recurrent abscesses and fistulas located in apocrine gland-bearing body sites. The negative impact of HS on patient's quality of life (QoL) has been reported to be greater than other dermatologic conditions as psoriasis and atopic eczema, and its improvement is an important goal in disease management. Nowadays, there are no specific validated QoL ...

BACKGROUND: Lichen planopilaris (LPP) and discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) are the most common causes of lymphocytic primary cicatricial alopecia. The management of scarring alopecia can be difficult. The combination of clinical, dermoscopy and reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM), a noninvasive, high-resolution imaging technique, examinations have already been demonstrated to be useful for choosing the correct biopsy site in patients with inflammatory skin disease and obtaining ...

Concordance between in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy and histology in the evaluation of plaque psoriasis
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: Psoriasis is a common skin inflammatory disease that affects 2% of the general population. Plaque psoriasis (PP) is its most common variant. In vivo reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a non-invasive, reproducible imaging technique that has proven to give useful information for morphometric evaluation of several inflammatory skin conditions, such as acute contact dermatitis and discoid lupus.
OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to define the in vivo RCM features of PP and to ...

Dermoscopy and reflectance confocal microscopy of pigmented actinic keratoses: a morphological study
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: Actinic keratoses (AKs) are very common lesions on sun damaged skin and, when pigmented, represent a challenge in the differential diagnosis with early melanoma. Non-invasive diagnostic methods, such as dermoscopy and reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) have been shown to improve the diagnostic accuracy of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer, however, only one case report described confocal findings of pigmented AKs up to now.
OBJECTIVES: The aim of our retrospective ...
