Transcript of "Dermatology 5th year, 3rd lecture (Dr. Faraedon Kaftan)"

  1. 1. Dermatologic Signs of Systemic Diseases5th yearLecture By Dr. FaraedonKaftanConsultant DermatologistCollege of MedicineUniversity of Sulaimani April. 10th2011<br />
  2. 2. The skin is often a window to systemic disease.<br />By recognizing cutaneous manifestations of systemic diseases, the internist can often determine the appropriate diagnosis and therapy or the need for referral to a dermatologist.<br />1- Common cutaneous disorders (Seb D, Seb K, Urt,EM, V, EN)<br />2- Blistering diseases (P, Pd, EBA)<br />3- Internal malignancies (Cut. Metastases, Pag. Dis, AN, Amyloid)<br />4- Cardiovascular disease (PXE, EDS)<br />5- Pulmonary disease (Sarcoidosis)<br />6- Rheumatic disease (Ps. A, LE, Sclerod., DM )<br />7- Gastrointestinal disease (DH, ACE, LP …)<br />8- Renal disease (Nephrogenicfibrosingdermopathy) <br />9- Endocrine and metabolic disease (Porphyria and Diabetes Mellitus-Related Skin Conditions)<br />
  3. 3. 1- Common cutaneous disorders <br />Seborrheic dermatitis<br />may be associated with <br />systemic disease, such as <br />1-Parkinson's disease<br />2- (HIV: Human immunodeficiency virus) infection. <br />3- (CVA: cerebrovascular accident ) can develop unilateral seborrheic dermatitis on the scalp corresponding to the affected hemisphere, (The pathophysiology of this phenomenon is not completely understood.)<br />
  4. 4. SeborrheicKeratoses<br />the most common benign cutaneous neoplasms, <br />are warty, age-related hyperkeratotic papules and plaques that appear anywhere on the body, most commonly the trunk.<br />(Sign of Leser-Trélat):Rarely, if seborrheickeratoses appear suddenly in great numbers indicate an underlying adenocarcinoma of the GI tract<br />
  5. 5. Urticaria or Hives<br />are pruritic, edematous, <br /> evanescent wheals that <br /> resolve within 24 hours.<br />Acute urticaria typically lasts <br /> less than 6 weeks. <br />is most often caused by: <br />1- Medication (commonly penicillin or <br /> other antibiotics, sulfa drugs, aspirin) <br />2- Food (shellfish, nuts, chocolate), <br />3- infection: less often<br />
  6. 6. ErythemaMultiforme (EM)<br />Is a cutaneous hypersensitivity reaction characterized by Iris (Target) lesions on the face, hands and feet. <br />is usually caused by: <br />1- Infection (herpes simplex virus or Mycoplasmapneumoniae) <br />2- and less commonly by drug sensitivity (sulfonamides, barbiturates, antibiotics). <br />
  7. 7. Vitiligo<br />commonly occurs in periorificial areas (mouth, orbits, vagina, anus) or at sites of trauma (hands, elbows, knees). <br />Vitiligo is often associated with: <br />1- Autoimmune thyroid disease, <br />2- diabetes mellitus (Insulin-dependent) <br />3- Pernicious anemia, or <br />4- Addison's disease.<br />
  8. 8. ErythemaNodosum (EN)<br />Painful, erythematous nodules on the shins and occasionally elsewhere, in young women, between 20 and 40 years, lasting an average of 3 to 6 weeks.<br />Causes of EN: 3 S + Tb<br />1- Streptococcal pharyngitis is the most common . <br />2- Tuberculosis,<br />3- (GI) infections with Yersinia, Salmonella, or Shigella, and <br />4- Systemic fungal infections. <br />5- Less common causes: drug sensitivity (sulfonamides, salicylates, iodides, oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy), and a variety of systemic diseases, most often inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease more than ulcerative colitis) and sarcoidosis.<br />
  9. 9. 2- Blistering diseasesPemphigusVulgaris<br />painful mucosal erosions and flaccid skin blisters (bullae) that become erosive. occurs in the 40th to 60th of life, <br />Mortality is significant, even with treatment.<br />
  10. 10. BullousPemphigoid<br />characterized by large, tense subepidermal blisters, which are often pruritic. Mucosal disease is rare.<br />in the elderly, 65 and 75 years of age. <br />
  11. 11. EpidermolysisBullosaAcquisita: EBA<br />uncommon bullous disease characterized by skin fragility, milia (small cysts), scarring alopecia, and nail dystrophy. primarily on the hands, feet, elbows, and knees.<br />EBA may be associated with other autoimmune diseases, most frequently inflammatory bowel disease. <br />
  12. 12. 3- Internal malignancies<br />Cutaneous Metastases<br />Any malignant neoplasm can metastasize to the skin. <br />in men: Cutaneous metastases are from cancers of the lung, large intestine, and kidney.<br />in women: Cutaneous metastases are from cancers of the breast and large intestine.<br />Flesh-colored to violaceous nodules in close proximity to the primary neoplasm; <br />Most common sites are the <br /> - Head (scalp), <br /> - Neck, and <br /> - Trunk.<br />
  13. 13. Paget's Disease<br />1- Mammary Paget's disease: Unilateral eczematous <br />plaque of the nipple and areola. <br />- is strongly associated with an underlying <br />invasive Ca. of the breast<br />2- Extramammary Paget's disease: <br />* persistent, eczematous plaque of the <br />anogenital or axillary regions: <br />* is often associated with an underlying <br />- adnexal (apocrine gland) carcinoma or <br />- cancer of the genitourinary tract or distal GIT.<br />
  14. 14. AcanthosisNigricans (ANs)<br />smooth, velvet-like, hyperkeratotic plaques in intertriginous areas (e.g., groin, axillae, neck).<br />Type I (Malignant AN): is associated with malignancy. May be adenocarcinoma of the GI tract (60% gastric) <br />has a sudden onset and more extensive distribution, including the face, palms, and trunk. <br />Type III AN is associated with obesity and insulin resistance and is the most commonly occurring type.<br />AN can develop following the use of drugs: <br /> systemic Cs, <br /> nicotinic acid, <br /> diethylstilbestrol, and <br />isoniazid (INH).<br />
  15. 15. Amyloidosis<br />Purpuric and Ecchymotic Papules on the eyelids and extremities due to amyloid infiltration in the vessels. <br />may be a sign of multiple myeloma. <br />
  16. 16. 4- Cardiovascular diseasePseudoxanthomaElasticum: PXE<br />Brittle (Broken)and calcified elastic fibers. <br />Yellow papules over redundant skin folds on the neck, abdomen, and groin, giving the skin the appearance of plucked chicken skin. <br />Angioid streaks in Bruch's membrane of the eye.<br />Associated signs of PXE : <br />1- Hypertension (HTN) <br />2- Peripheral vascular and coronary artery disease <br />3- Retinal and GI hemorrhage<br />4- Stroke.<br />
  17. 17. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome: EDS<br /><ul><li>abnormalities in collagen biosynthesis, </li></ul> which can affect multiorgans<br />Joint hyperextensibility, <br />Hypermobility (Hyperelasticity) <br />Skin and Vessel fragility, and <br />fish-mouth scars. <br />* (7-11) types of EDS identified associated with:<br />mitral valve prolapse, blue sclerae, vascular aneurysm, aortic dissection, hernias, angina, GI bleeding (perforation), and peripheral vascular disease. <br />* Patients with vascular (type IV) EDS are prone to arterial rupture and have the highest mortality.<br />
