Cutaneous erosions: a herald for impending pancytopenia in methotrexate toxicity. (Wed, 23 Jul 2014)
We report 3 rare presentations of MTX-induced cutaneous erosions, 2 fatalities occurring with MTX-induced psoriatic plaque erosions, and the sixth reported case of MTX-induced erosions with no prior history of psoriasis. Each were elderly patients on proton pump inhibitors with a history of chronic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use. They all presented with acute onset of erosions after a recent change in their MTX dose. Pancytopenia followed in each case. Physicians' awareness of the sequelae in MTX-induced cutaneous erosions is imperative so MTX can be discontinued and treatment instituted to prevent fatal bone marrow suppression.

The use of ustekinumab in a patient with severe psoriasis and positive HBV serology (Wed, 23 Jul 2014)
We report the case of a patient with severe psoriasis with positive serology for the Hepatitis B virus, who received ustekinumab (a human monoclonal antibody against interleukin 12 and 23). In this patient, the use of ustekinumab did not reactivate the Hepatitis B virus. Given the high prevalence of chronic viral infections in patients who are candidates for biologic therapy, as well as the potential for reactivate chronic viral illness, randomized controlled studies are needed to assess the risks and benefits of such therapy in these populations.

When anti-TNF fails, anti-IL12-23 is an alternate option in psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (Fri, 18 Jul 2014)
Pacientes com psoríase e artrite psoriásica respondem à terapia anti-TNF, mas nem todos os pacientes mantêm uma resposta efetiva e alguns não respondem. Nesse artigo, demonstramos o papel de uma nova via patogenética que, até certo ponto, independe de TNF nesses pacientes. Anti-IL-12-23 é um modo terapêutico novo e alternativo para pacientes com resposta recalcitrante à medicação com anti-TNF.Patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis respond to anti-TNF therapy, but not all patients maintain effective response, and some do not respond. In this article, we demonstrate the role of a new pathogenetic pathway to some extent TNF-independent in these patients. Anti-IL12-23 is a new and alternate mode of therapy for patients with recalcitrant response to anti-TNF. (Source: Revis...

Authors: Kutlubay Z, Zara T, Engin B, Serdaroğlu S, Tüzün Y, Yilmaz E, Eren B Abstract Helicobacter pylori is a Gram-negative bacterium that has been linked to peptic ulcer disease, gastric lymphoma, and gastric carcinoma.

Some studies suggest an association between Helicobacter pylori infection and skin diseases such as chronic idiopathic urticaria and rosacea. There have also been few case reports documenting association between Helicobacter pylori and psoriasis vulgaris, Behçet's disease,...
