Genodiagnosis of HPV beta DNA association with seborrheic keratosis in immunosuppressed and immunocompetent patients

Korneva L.V., Snarskaya E.S., Molochkov V.A., Polyanskaya A.A.


Numerous data indicate the involvement of human papilloma virus (HPV), genus beta, in the development of epithelial tumors of the skin. We studied the association of seborrheic keratosis (SK) with HPV by analysis of HPV beta DNA, including that in immunosuppressed patients. Twenty recipients of renal transplants and 20 immunocompetent patients with SK were examined. Control group consisted of 49 volunteers without epithelial tumors of the skin. Genodiagnosis of HPV beta DNA in biopsy specimens was carried out by the real time polymerase chain reaction with hybridization fluorescent detection. Amplification and detection were carried out on a Rotor-Gene 3000 device (Corbett Research, Australia). The results indicated high levels of HPV DNA in transplant recipients - in foci of SK and in visually intact skin (in 85 and 55% cases, respectively), which was higher than the incidence of the virus in donor skin (47%). Virus charge in SKfoci was significantly higher than in the control group.

Clinical characteristics of basalcell cutaneous carcinoma and risk factors for this disease in residents of an industrial city region

Pisklakova T.P., Ekimova O.I.


The register of patients with basal-cell cutaneous carcinoma (BCCC) in Regional Center of Skin and Sexually-Transmitted diseases No. 3 in Chelyabinsk, was created with consideration for the professional appurtenance of 267 patients living in the industrial region of the city (in the town of Kopeisk). The patients were distributed into 5 professional groups: 56 patients engaged in coal mining, 18 in metallurgy, 92 workers without harmful occupational exposure, and 58 patients not engaged in industry. Multiple BCCC was more often diagnosed in patients from professional groups exposed to harmful factors (21.9, 27, and 27.8%); primary multiple cancer was diagnosed in 14.6% of patients engaged in coal mining and 16.2% of patients engaged in chemical industry. Multidimensional factorial analysis showed that occupational factors were the leading risk factors for BCCC in professional groups with harmful occupational exposure, while the risk factors for other professional groups were insolation and patient’s skin phototype.

Okhlopkov V.A., Zubareva E.Y., Radul E.V., Bocharova S.D.


A clinical case is presented: cutis verticis gyrata of the hairy part of the head. The patient is consulted at outpatient department of Omsk Regional Clinical Center for Skin and Sexually-Transmitted Diseases. Cutis verticis gyrata is a rather rare disease. Genetically determined dermatosis is combined with congenital primary leukoderma with autosomal dominant inheriting, associated with disorders in melatonin production. The disease is diagnosed on the base of the clinical picture and histological description of a biopsy specimen of the skin of the hairy part of the head. There is no specific therapy for this disease. This clinical case is interesting for practical dermatologists and cosmetologists.

Potentialities of liposomal cosmetics in therapy for psoriasis

Khlebnikova A.N., Molochkov A.V.


A unique line of creams, Isida (Russia), is used in therapy for psoriasis. The cream is based on Dorogov’s antiseptic stimulant (DAS), a potent antiseptic stimulating the natural defense force of the skin and the metabolic and immune processes. Modern liposomal technologies create a unique base compensating for the lipid deficiency and restoring the defense function of the epidermis. The Isida products are effectively used in combined therapy for psoriasis and as a means for care of the skin during remissions. Face and body cream for dry and sensitive skin is effective in psoriasis vulgaris, hand cream is recommended in psoriasis of the palms and soles, and dry skin balm is effective in involvement of the hairy part of the head.

Psoriasis in a patient with ichthyosis

Tlish M.M., Katkhanova O.A., Naatyzh Z.Y., Popovskaya E.B., Sycheva N.L.


A clinical case is presented: a combination of disseminated psoriasis vulgaris, Barber’s pustular psoriasis, and ichthyosis vulgaris in the same patient. This combination is regarded as syntropy - a form ofpolymorbidity. Specific features of clinical course of these diseases consist in the absence of psoriatic elements in sites of ichthyosiform efflorescence on the skin. Complex examination of the patient included histological studies of skin biopsy specimens. This case is theoretically and practically interesting, as no combination of this kind has been reported over the recent 5 years. This case may indicate the common etiology and pathogenesis of various forms of psoriasis with ichthyosis and their mutual effects on each other.

The hematoma feigning Becker's nevus

Bazaev V.T., Tseboeva M.B., Tsarueva M.S.


Is described the clinical case of hemangioma feigned of Becker’s nevus at the girl of 9 years old. Clinical signs of Becker’s nevus (a hyperpegmentation with reinforced body height of hair, the beginning at the age of 10-20 years) not always are specific that can create particular difficulties of diagnostics and maintaining such patients. The decisive role in the differential diagnosis may belong to ultrasound and dynamic monitoring. The case is interesting not only for dermatologists, but also for the doctors of related specialties - surgeons, oncologists.

Clinical case with Brocq's ichthyosiform erythroderma

Degtyarev O.V., Mesnyankina O.A., Yanchevskaya E.Y., Shashkova A.A.


Ichthyoses are a heterogeneous group of hereditary diseases of the skin, characterized by disorders in hornification processes. Rather low incidence of this abnormality in the common structure of dermatological morbidity, persistent course, total systems involvement, poor efficiency of treatment make the problem of congenital ichthyosis one of the difficult and pressing problems of dermatology. The clinical case with Brocq’s ichthyosiform erythroderma, presented in this paper, attracts special attention to congenital ichthyosis and suggests prenatal medical genetic counselling offamilies, particularly with family history of the condition.

Immune aspects of segmentary and nonsegmentary vitiligo

Sharafutdinova L.A., Lomonosov K.M.


The immune status was evaluated in patients with segmentary (SV) and nonsegmentary (NSV) vitiligo and normal subjects. Significant differences were detected between the patients with the two clinical forms. Cellular immunity imbalance was detected in NSVpatients: a more marked reduction of T-lymphocytes and T-helpers paralleled by high suppressor activity. In addition, these patients developed a significant increase in the levels of circulating immune complexes and a reduction of the zero cell levels in comparison with SV patients and controls. The results indicated that different pathogenetic mechanisms led to melanocyte destruction in SV and NSVpatients.

Evaluation of laser therapy efficiency in onychomycosis

Akmaeva A.R., Olisova O.Y., Pinson I.Y.


Onychomycosis is one of the most prevalent diseases in dermatological practice. A new method for onychomycosis treatment - laser therapy - is presented. The method is realized on Q-Switched 1064/532 nm and Nd:YAG 1064 nm lasers. The method is highly effective and safe. The study was carried out in 80 patients (aged 27-80 years) with the diagnosis ofplantar onychomycosis confirmed by laboratory findings (microbiological and microscopic). Patients of the study group (N=40) received laser therapy as follows: 1 exposure every other week during 6 months, a total of 12 sessions. Controls (N=40) received total systems introconasole by the pulsed therapy protocol during 3 months. Clinical cure without side effects was attained in 90% of patients in the study group, vs. 85% patients in control group, with 7.5% patients (controls) developing side effects (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea). Hence, laser therapy is effective and safe and comparable by efficiency with total systems antimycotics.

Correction of age-associated changes in the skin in women by amino acid cluster

Smolyakova S.A., Olisova O.Y.


Chronoaging (natural aging) is associated with involutive changes in the skin. Correction of these changes is one of the main tasks of cosmetology and plastic surgery. Use of a functional amino acid cluster (50% glycine, 37% proline, 6% lysine, 7% leucine, and 1% sodium hyaluronate solution) is highly effective. A total of 72 women aged 35-55 years with clinical manifestations of involutive changes in the skin received a course of 4 procedures at 7-10-day intervals. Noninvasive diagnostic methods (laser confocal microscopy, ultrasonic scanning of the skin, videoscanning) showed that intradermal injections of the functional amino acid complex led to improvement of the structural and morphofunctional organization of the epidermis and derma, promoted thickening of the dermal layer, and smoothed out the microrelief. Analysis of GAIS questionnaires showed that the majority of patients were satisfied with the result: 85% women evaluated the result by 2-3 points, which could be interpreted as a “significant improvement” and “improvement”, corresponding to manifest correction of skin aging.
