      • Mixed cryoglobulinemia
      • Cryoglobulins are anti-immunoglobulin immunoglobulins (Igs) that precipitate at temperatures less than 37°C.
      • Mixed cryoglobulins : rheumatoid factors (RF) (usually IgM) complexed with IgG which form immune complexes.
      • Mixed cryoglobulinemia : considered essential if it is not associated with any disease other than Sjogrens syndrome
      • Porphyria cutanea tarda
      • Porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) is characterized by an abnormal porphyrin metabolism secondary to decreased activity of uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase (URO-D).
      • The cutaneous findings: skin fragility, blister formation, hyperpigmentation and hypertrichosis, by the photosensitizing action of accumulated porphyrins
      • Lichen planus
      • Lichen planus is a chronic inflammatory mucocutaneous disease process. It usually presents as small, pruritic, purple, planar, polygonal papules with superimposed fine, reticulated white lines called Wickham's striae.
      • Mucous membrane lesions are typically lacy white or ulcerative.

    • Inflammatory bowel diseases
      • Inflammatory disorders of the bowel discussed here include ulcerative colitis (UC), Crohn's disease, and bowel bypass syndrome
      • Both UC and Crohn's disease (the traditional inflammatory bowel diseases [IBD]) can present with abdominal pain, GI bleeding, or diarrhea.
      • Bowel bypass syndrome : a bacterial overgrowth in the blind loop associated with a dermatosis-arthritis syndrome
    • Inflammatory bowel diseases Inflammatory disorders of the bowel discussed here include ulcerative colitis (UC), Crohn's disease, and bowel bypass syndrome Both UC and Crohn's disease (the traditional inflammatory bowel diseases [IBD]) can present with abdominal pain, GI bleeding, or diarrhea. Bowel bypass syndrome : a bacterial overgrowth in the blind loop associated with a dermatosis-arthritis syndrome
    • Pathogenesis of extraintestinal manifestations of inflammatory bowel syndrome
      • Immunologic mechanisms
      • The mucosa from the underlying bowel disease provides associated immune responses for the inflammatory process in the extraintestinal sites.
      • Autoimmune response increases with the presence of foreign proteins or bacterial products in the intestinal mucosa.
      • Shared epitopes between bacterial proteins and host self-antigens.
      • Microbial peptides cross-reactive to the cellular autoantigenic epitope may initiate the autoimmune response
    • Skin findings
      • Erythema nodosum Pyoderma gangrenosum Angular stomatitis Aphthous stomatitis Pyostomatitis vegetans Psoriasis Erythema multiforme Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita Sweet's syndrome Metastatic Crohn's disease

      • The dermatologic changes: sclerotic changes that eventually involve the entire body, telangiectases, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation
      • GIT Manifestations
      • The esophageal symptoms :feeling of premature fullness, reflux esophagitis, dysphagia, and epigastric pain.
      • Stomach and small bowel :anorexia, early fullness, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, and obstipation caused by impaired motility, which, in turn, leading to chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction, malnutrition, and bacterial overgrowth
    • Pemphigus vulgaris
      • Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) : autoimmune blistering disorder involving the skin and mucous membranes that also can affect the esophagus (persistent sore throat, dysphagia, and odynophagia).
      • Skin lesions: bullous lesions(1-10 cm) superficial, and easily ruptured by trauma. One characteristic finding on lateral palpation of these lesions is extension into adjacent tissue.
      • Mucosal sites also commonly are involved, including the oral mucosa (often the presenting site), anus, cervix, and conjunctivae.
      • Antigenic confirmation of the disease correlation: the target cell adhesion molecule of the PV autoantibodies is strongly expressed in the esophageal epithelia .
    • Summary
      • Early recognition of cutaneous diseases or manifestations associated with the gastrointestinal tract disorders may be lifesaving at times, and may lead to early preventive intervention to decrease risk of morbidity or mortality.
