BACKGROUND: Several cases of folliculotropic mycosis fungoides, associated with immunosuppressive therapy, including calcineurin inhibitors, have been reported in solid organ transplant patients. We have encountered 3 patients on immunosuppressive therapy who developed follicular eruptions with folliculocentric infiltrates of nonatypical lymphocytes. OBJECTIVE: To characterize these follicular eruptions and review the literature. METHODS: Three patients, aged 7-15 years, who were treated with sy...

Neonatal autoimmune subepidermal blistering disease is rare. Mucosal involvement is more common in neonatal linear immunoglobulin A (IgA) bullous dermatosis. We describe a neonate with subepidermal cutaneous blistering disease with severe laryngeal and esophageal involvement leading to acute respiratory distress. Histopathology demonstrated a subepidermal blister with neutrophils and eosinophils at the dermal base. Collagen IV was detected at the dermal floor, and direct immunofluorescence showe...

Background: Since partial oxygen pressure decreases as altitude increases, environmental hypoxia could worsen COVID-19 patient9s hypoxemia. We compared COVID-19 mortality at different altitudes. Methods: Retrospective analysis of population-level data on COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. (1,016 counties) and Mexico (567 municipalities). Mixed-model Poisson regression analysis of the association between altitude and COVID-19 mortality using individual-level data from 40,168 Mexican subjects with COVID-...

BACKGROUNDMirabegron is a beta3-adrenergic receptor (beta3-AR) agonist approved only for the treatment of overactive bladder. Encouraging preclinical results suggest that beta3-AR agonists could also improve obesity-related metabolic disease by increasing brown adipose tissue (BAT) thermogenesis, white adipose tissue (WAT) lipolysis, and insulin sensitivity.METHODSWe treated 14 healthy women of diverse ethnicities (27.5 +/- 1.1 years of age, BMI of 25.4 +/- 1.2 kg/m2) with 100 mg mirabegron (Myr...

The highest efficacy of oral propranolol is for infantile hemangioma (IH) in the proliferative phase. Evaluation of the effectiveness of oral propranolol is less established when it is administered in late infancy following the proliferative phase. We aimed to assess the clinical outcomes of pediatric patients managed by oral propranolol beyond the proliferative phase of IH. A retrospective cohort study in a tertiary healthcare referral center was conducted to track all patients with IH receivin...

Aims/hypothesis Insufficient sleep is increasingly recognised as a major risk factor for the development of obesity and diabetes, and short-term sleep loss in clinical studies leads to a reduction in insulin sensitivity. Sleep loss-induced metabolic impairments are clinically relevant, since reductions in insulin sensitivity after sleep loss are comparable to insulin sensitivity differences between healthy individuals and those with impaired glucose tolerance. However, the relative effects of sl...

BACKGROUND: We have encountered three cases of follicular eruptions with folliculotropic infiltrates of non-atypical lymphocytes associated with anti-tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) therapy. METHODS: Three patients aged 15 to 56 years treated with anti-TNF-alpha therapy (one with adalimumab, and two with infliximab) developed follicular eruptions characterized histopathologically by folliculotropic lymphocytic infiltrates. These were studied clinically, histopathologically, immunophenoty...
