1/18. Arthropathy associated with cystic acne, hidradenitis suppurativa, and perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens: treatment with isotretinoin.

    A patient with arthropathy associated with cystic acne, hidradenitis suppurativa, and perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens who showed a dramatic response to isotretinoin is described. This, to our knowledge, is the first report documenting effective treatment of this condition, whose nosologic position with respect to other spondyloarthropathies associated with cutaneous disease is considered.

2/18. Perinuclear antineutrophilic cytoplasmic antibody-positive cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa associated with minocycline therapy for acne vulgaris.

    minocycline is an oral antibiotic widely used for the long-term treatment of acne vulgaris. Unusual side effects of this medication include two overlapping autoimmune syndromes: drug-induced lupus and autoimmune hepatitis. In addition, in a few patients livedo reticularis or subcutaneous nodules have developed in association with arthritis and serum perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (P-ANCA) during long-term minocycline therapy. We report the cases of two young women receiving long-term minocycline therapy (>3 years) in whom P-ANCA-positive cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa developed. Both patients presented with a violaceous reticulated pattern on the lower extremities. Histologic examination of biopsy specimens from a reticulated area and a subcutaneous nodule showed necrotizing vasculitis of medium-sized arteries in the deep dermis, consistent with the diagnosis of polyarteritis nodosa. The cutaneous lesions rapidly resolved on discontinuation of minocycline and initiation of prednisone therapy. A high index of suspicion and testing for antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody in addition to the standard antinuclear antibody panel can facilitate diagnosis of minocycline-related autoimmune disorders.

3/18. hidradenitis suppurativa and acne conglobata associated with spondyloarthropathy.

    hidradenitis suppurativa and acne conglobata are well-described chronic dermatologic diseases. Although the exact incidence of these disorders is unknown, both are relatively uncommon conditions. The incidence of spondyloarthropathy is less than 1% in the general population. Therefore, a triad of hidradenitis suppurativa, acne conglobata and spondyloarthropathy is a rare syndrome described only in a few case reports in the literature. We report a case of hidradenitis suppurativa and acne conglobata associated with spondyloarthropathy.

4/18. Nodulocystic acne and hidradenitis suppurativa treated with acitretin: a case report.

    Nodulocystic acne is a dermatologic disease that can result in significant damage to the skin of the face, chest, and back. hidradenitis suppurativa is a scarring disease of the skin that causes deep cysts and abscesses on the axillae and anogenital areas. We review a case of a patient with severe nodulocystic facial acne and hidradenitis suppurativa that was treated with 2 full courses of isotretinoin. Although the patient's condition improved, some draining cysts persisted on the face and groin. Because of the inability of isotretinoin to achieve long-term remission of the patient's condition, acitretin was considered as a possible maintenance drug. The patient was almost completely improved after 5 months' therapy with acitretin, which also was effectively used for ongoing maintenance. acitretin may be a promising treatment for severe nodulocystic acne and hidradenitis suppurativa, which require long-term suppression when isotretinoin fails to give long-term remission.

5/18. Drug-induced Sweet's syndrome in acne caused by different tetracyclines: case report and review of the literature.

    Sweet's syndrome was first described in 1964. It is characterized by an acute onset of non-pruritic, painful reddish nodules on the head and neck, chest and/or the upper limbs, mostly accompanied by fever, general malaise and leucocytosis. Histopathological examination shows a diffuse dermal neutrophilic infiltrate. The pathogenesis is still not fully understood, and different diseases have been shown to be associated with this syndrome. However, although still very rare, there is an increase of reports on Sweet's syndrome induced by drugs. We describe a 30-year-old man who experienced acute neutrophilic dermatosis after systemic treatment with minocycline. Additionally, there is a strong possibility that the same patient developed a drug-induced Sweet's syndrome after oral administration of tetracycline and doxycycline.

6/18. Three cases of androgen-dependent disease associated with myotonic dystrophy.

    Three cases of androgen-dependent disease in females with myotonic dystrophy are described. serum androgens in individuals affected by myotonic dystrophy are known to be lower on average than in normal controls. Despite this these three females developed diseases that are androgen dependent, including acne, hidradenitis suppurativa, androgenetic alopecia and keratosis pilaris. These cases support the hypothesis that the peripheral response to androgens rather than absolute circulating levels of androgens is important in androgen-dependent conditions.

7/18. Infliximab for the treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa.

    We describe a patient with hidradenitis suppurativa whose lesions responded to the administration of infliximab for suspected Crohn's disease.

8/18. Musculoskeletal features of acne, hidradenitis suppurativa, and dissecting cellulitis of the scalp.

    This article describes the various forms of acne and the clinical and radiographic features of the associated musculoskeletal manifestations. Occasionally, acne may occur together with hidradenitis suppurativa and dissecting cellulitis of the scalp, the so called "follicular occlusion triad." The current understanding of the etiology of these conditions and their treatment are also reviewed.

9/18. A novel connexin 26 gene mutation associated with features of the keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness syndrome and the follicular occlusion triad.

    We report the case of a congenitally deaf white male with mild palmoplantar keratoderma, ichthyosiform scaling, follicular hyperkeratosis, and mild keratitis, features consistent with keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness syndrome. His major problem was severe, disfiguring, inflammatory dissecting folliculitis of the scalp, hidradenitis suppurativa, and cystic acne, features comprising the follicular occlusion triad. This unusual phenotype is associated with a novel heterozygous point mutation (C119T) in the gap junction beta2 gene that substitutes a valine for alanine at codon 40 (A40V) in the connexin 26 protein. Through xenopus oocyte expression studies, this mutant protein was shown to significantly disrupt the function of the specialized gap junctions connecting the cytoplasm of adjacent cells critical for tissue homeostasis. Mutations within the connexin 26 protein are associated with syndromes involving both sensorineural deafness and hyperkeratotic skin disorders. This is the first report of an association between a connexin 26 protein mutation, follicular hyperkeratosis of keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness syndrome, and severe follicular occlusion triad.

10/18. A case of pyoderma vegetans and the follicular occlusion triad.

    A case of pyoderma vegetans (PYV) and hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is described. Our patient had a previous history of perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens and acne conglobata. Direct immunofluorescence findings ruled out pemphigus vegetans and suggested a potential pathogenic mechanism.
