1. Time course changes of scratching counts, dermatitis symptoms, and levels of cutaneous prostaglandins in NC/Nga mice.
Match Strength: 8.226
NC/Nga (NC) mice are known to develop dermatitis resembling atopic dermatitis (AD) in conventional (Conv) conditions, but not in specific pathogen-free (SPF) conditions. We reported that the ability of skin prostaglandin D(2) (PGD(2)) production, which might be the endogenous inhibitor of itching, was attenuated in skin-lesioned Conv-NC mice. We examined the age-related change in scratching, dermatitis symptoms, and skin PGs of SPF- and Conv-NC mice. In Conv-NC, PGD(2) increased at 7 weeks, at which scratching counts increased, but dermatitis did not develop. PGE(2), PGI(2) and PGF(2alpha) ... Read More »

3. Rheumatoid neutrophilic dermatitis.
Match Strength: 6.231
Rheumatoid neutrophilic dermatitis (RND) is an infrequent cutaneous manifestation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This condition is seen in patients who are both positive and negative for a circulating rheumatoid factor. Histologically, it presents with a neutrophilic dermatosis, characterized by a heavy dermal infiltrate of neutrophils with variable degrees of leukocytoclasis but no vasculitis. We describe the case of a young female with seronegative RA who had concomitant lesions of RND over both elbows. Her lesions appeared as nodules, but RND has been reported as papules and plaques, ...

5. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus skin abscesses in a pediatric patient with atopic dermatitis: a case report.
Match Strength: 5.526
Recent trends indicate an increasing incidence of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CAMRSA) in the general population, which is especially worrisome for clinicians caring for patients with atopic dermatitis (AD). Patients with AD are heavily colonized with S aureus and have impaired skin integrity and abnormal immune responses, which predisposes them to more invasive cutaneous infections (eg, cellulitis, furuncles, abscesses). In this report, we describe a child with severe AD who presented with CAMRSA skin abscesses. The presence of an atypical skin infection in ... Read More »

6. Role of bacterial superantigens in atopic dermatitis : implications for future therapeutic strategies.
Match Strength: 4.460
The role of staphylococcal superantigens in the pathophysiology of atopic dermatitis (AD) has been the focus of intense interest during the past decade. Although the increased prevalence of Staphylococcus aureus and its bacterial toxins in AD skin is well established, exploitation of the known mechanisms of superantigens in this disease for the development of novel therapies remains an active area of research. With the emergence of multi-drug resistant S. aureus, the need for a better understanding of the pathophysiology of bacterial superantigens in AD has become increasingly important. This ...

7. Influence of narrow-band UVB phototherapy on cutaneous microbiota of children with atopic dermatitis.
Match Strength: 4.298
OBJECTIVE: In the present work, the effect of narrow-band ultraviolet B (UVB) phototherapy on a cutaneous microbial population was evaluated in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) and compared with control patients (vitiligo). METHODS: Count, isolation and identification of cutaneous microbiota from anticubital fossa were performed in 10 controls and 10 AD patients, both submitted to similar levels (P > 0.05) of UVB phototherapy (4.3 +/- 0.9 and 4.3 +/- 0.8 accumulated joules, respectively). Additionally, Staphylococcus aureus isolates were screened for the production of exotoxins. RESULTS ... Read More »

8. Pediatric rosacea.
Match Strength: 4.187
Rosacea is a condition most commonly associated with adults; however, various forms exist in the pediatric population and need to be considered when a child presents with a facial rash. Acne rosacea, steroid rosacea, granulomatous periorificial dermatitis, and other variants of rosacea are presented here and are distinguished from their numerous mimickers. Various topical and systemic therapeutic options exist for the treatment of rosacea with several adjustments and considerations that must be taken into account when treating a child. Publication Types: ... Read More »

12. CD18 in Monogenic and Polygenic Inflammatory Processes of the Skin.
Match Strength: 2.470
The beta(2) integrin family (CD11/CD18) of leukocyte adhesion molecules plays a key role in inflammation. Absence of the common beta chain (CD18) leads to leukocyte adhesion deficiency-1 (LAD1) in humans. We here summarize data of two genetically defined mice models of beta(2) integrin deficiency, one with a CD18 null mutation (CD18(-/-)), and the other one with a hypomorphic CD18 mutation (CD18(hypo)). Firstly, we focus on the underlying mechanism of a severely impaired wound healing in CD18(-/-) mice, outlining a scenario in which a defective extravasation and phagocytosis of CD18(-/-) ...

13. Identification of susceptibility loci for skin disease in a murine psoriasis model.
Match Strength: 2.390
Psoriasis is a frequently occurring inflammatory skin disease characterized by thickened erythematous skin that is covered with silvery scales. It is a complex genetic disease with both heritable and environmental factors contributing to onset and severity. The CD18 hypomorphic PL/J mouse reveals reduced expression of the common chain of beta(2) integrins (CD11/CD18) and spontaneously develops a skin disease that closely resembles human psoriasis. In contrast, CD18 hypomorphic C57BL/6J mice do not demonstrate this phenotype. In this study, we have performed a genome-wide scan to identify loci ... Read More »

14. Pediatric granulomatous arthritis: an international registry.
Match Strength: 2.365
OBJECTIVE: Blau syndrome and its sporadic counterpart, early-onset sarcoidosis, share an identical phenotype featuring the classic triad of arthritis, dermatitis, and uveitis and are associated with mutations of CARD15 in 50-90% of cases. We chose the term "pediatric granulomatous arthritis" to refer to both. An international registry was established in the spring of 2005 to define the phenotype spectrum and establish the mutation frequency and variants. METHODS: Histologically confirmed granuloma and arthritis were required for inclusion. Probands and relatives were genotyped for CARD15. ... Read More »
