  • Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are a heterogeneous group of rare tumours derived from peptidergic neurons and specialized neuroendocrine cells capable of secreting various peptides or amines. These cells may be present in endocrine tissue or diffused in the tissues of the digestive or respiratory system. The article reviews the characteristic features of NENs, with particular emphasis on skin ma…
  • StatPearls: Oral Candidiasis [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)TaylorMichaelMWyckoff Heights Medical CenterRajaAvaisAUniversity of Western States, Portland, OregonBOOK
  • Oral candidiasis or thrush is an infection of the oral cavity by Candida albicans. It was first described in 1838 by pediatrician Francois Veilleux. Oral candidiasis is generally obtained secondary to immune suppression, whether a patient's oral cavity has decreased immune function or if it is systemic. This immunosuppression is dose-dependent. Examples of systemic immunosuppression are very youn…

  • Angular cheilitis (AC) is a descriptive diagnosis for an inflammatory skin process of varied etiology occurring at the labial commissure – the angle of the mouth. "Angular," or commissural, refers to a localized lip inflammation (i.e., “cheilitis,” from the Greek chilos or “lips”) that is distinguishable from the more generalized cheilitides that have different causes. The angles of the mouth are…
  • StatPearls: Candidiasis [BOOK]

  • First isolation and identification of Cystobasidium calyptogenae from the oral samples of an elderly patient presenting with angular cheilitis. [Case Reports]
    Eur J Med Res. 2022 Mar 27; 27(1):48.Karajacob AS, Goh JPE, … Tay ST
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the first report on the isolation of C. calyptogenae from human oral samples. The ability of C. calyptogenae to grow at 37 °C and the fact that it was the only yeast species isolated from the patient's oral samples suggests its pathogenic potential and possible involvement in angular cheilitis. The ubiquitous nature of the Cystobasidium yeast is believed to increase the likelihood of opportunistic infections among immunocompromised individuals. As Cystobasidium is phenotypically indistinguishable from Rhodotorula, an emerging opportunistic pathogen, surveillance using molecular identification in clinical settings is essential in providing accurate diagnosis and treatment of uncommon yeast infections.
  • [Clinic and treatment of the oral candidiasis]. [Journal Article]
    Stomatologiia (Mosk). 2021; 100(6. Vyp. 2):43-47.Krikheli NI, Pozdnyakova TI, … Zhuravleva EG
  • CONCLUSIONS: The study showed that antifungal therapy for oral mucosa candidiasis should always be pathogenetically justified and should be carried out considering the patient's underlying disease.
  • Oral manifestations among COVID-19: An observational study of 713 patients. [Journal Article]
    Dent Res J (Isfahan). 2021; 18:67.Subramaniam T, Nikalje MR, Jadhav S
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study supports the hypothesis that oral manifestations in patients diagnosed with COVID-19 could be secondary lesions resulting from local irritants or from the deterioration of systemic health or could be just coexisting conditions. No specific pattern or characteristic oral lesions were noted in a study of 713 COVID-positive patients in our study to qualify these lesions as oral manifestations of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
  • Dermatological Opportunistic Infections in HIV Seropositive Patients: An Observational Study. [Journal Article]
    Cureus. 2021 Aug; 13(8):e16852.Basida SD, Basida B, … Trivedi AP
  • Background and objective In developing countries, the dermatological manifestation of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has a high prevalence.

  • False cheilitis (fausse cheilitis) as a clinical manifestation of oral secondary syphilis. [Journal Article]
    Int J Dermatol. 2022 Feb; 61(2):180-183.Gilligan G, Leonardi N, … Piemonte E
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that when angular cheilitis presents in young females as a painful, unilateral lesion, in the clinical context of other lesions and lymphadenopathies in the head and neck region, it could represent a suspicious clinical sign of syphilis. Considering the global re-emergence of sexually transmitted diseases, dentists should be aware of the oral clinical manifestations of syphilis as they play a significant role in the early detection of these conditions.
  • Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome Presented as Atypical Ocular Toxoplasmosis. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Ophthalmol Med. 2021; 2021:5512408.Khalili Pour E, Riazi-Esfahani H, … Zarei M
  • CONCLUSIONS: This report highlights the fact that sometimes, the eyes are the site of the first presentation of a systemic life-threatening condition and emphasizes the role of ophthalmologists in such cases. In cases of atypical presentation, appropriate laboratory tests and CNS imaging should be requested. Systemic treatment with antitoxoplasmosis regimens and highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) is mandatory in AIDS patients with ocular toxoplasmosis.
  • Art of prevention: Practical interventions in lip-licking dermatitis. [Review]
    Int J Womens Dermatol. 2020 Dec; 6(5):377-380.Fonseca A, Jacob SE, Sindle A
  • Dry, cracked lips are a common occurrence in both cold winter months and arid climates, leading many patients to experience discomfort year-round. Lip-licking is a compensatory measure that perpetuates the condition and often leads to lip-licking dermatitis. In patients in whom this compensatory measure becomes a chronic habit, other sequelae such as irritant contact dermatitis, cheilitis simplex…
