  • 99:5 2019 - European S2k Guideline on Chronic Pruritus

    • Abstract: Elke Weisshaar, Jacek C. Szepietowski, Florence J. Dalgard, Simone Garcovich, Uwe Gieler, Ana M. Giménez-Arnau, Julien Lambert, Tabi Leslie, Thomas Mettang, Laurent Misery, Ekin 'avk, Markus Streit, Erwin Tschachler, Erwin Tschachler, Joanna Wallengren, Sonja Stí?nder - Pages: 469-506

      Pruritus is a frequent symptom in medicine. Population-based studies show that every 5th person in the general population has suffered from chronic pruritus at least once in the lifetime with a 12-month incidence of 7%. In patient populations its frequency is much higher depending on the underlying cause, ranging from around 25% in haemodialysis patients to 100% in skin diseases such as urticaria and atopic dermatitis (AD). Pruritus may be the result of a dermatological or non-dermatological disease. Especially in non-diseased skin it may be caused by systemic, neurological or psychiatric diseases, as well as being a side effect of medications. In a number of cases chronic pruritus may be of multifactorial origin. Pruritus needs a precise diagnostic work-up. Management of chronic pruritus comprises treatment of the underlying disease and topical treatment modalities, including symptomatic antipruritic treatment, ultraviolet phototherapy and systemic treatment. Treating chronic pruritus needs to be targeted, multimodal and performed in a step-wise procedure requiring an interdisciplinary approach. We present the updated and consensus based (S2k) European guideline on chronic pruritus by a team of European pruritus experts from different disciplines. This version is an updated version of the guideline that was published in 2012 and updated in 2014 (

  • 99:4 2019 - Itch in Psoriasis: A New Look at Well-known Subject

    • Abstract: Radomir Reszke, Rafa' Bia'ynicki-Birula, Jacek C. Szepietowski - Pages: 429-434

      Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory dermatosis, frequently presenting with chronic itch. This study investigated the prevalence and detailed clinical characteristics of chronic itch in 143 psoriatic patients, with regard to different age groups, comorbidities and pharmacotherapy. Chronic itch was reported by 72% of subjects. Patients aged 65 years and over presented higher 4-Item Itch Questionnaire (4IIQ) scores (8.6'±'3.4 vs. 7.4'±'2.5 points; p'='0.03) and rarely experienced itching at midday (p'='0.009). Chronic itch correlated with aspirin intake and xerosis intensity. 4IIQ scores were higher in patients with asthma/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, peptic ulcer disease and those taking insulin. Logistic regression analysis found that chronic itch was positively correlated with the use of antacids, angiotensin receptor blockers, angiotensin enzyme converting inhibitors, beta-blockers, xerosis intensity and Physician¯?s Global Assessment score, whereas psychiatric drugs other than selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, allopurinol, coexistence of arterial hypertension and application of emollients acted conversely. Elderly psoriatic patients present several differences in the characteristics of chronic itch, and chronic itch may be associated with comorbidities and pharmacotherapy. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to report possible associations between psoriatic pruritus and co-administration of drugs utilized in various systemic conditions.

           Dipropionate Aerosol Foam versus Ointment for the Topical Treatment of
           Psoriasis Vulgaris in Sweden

    • Abstract: Albert Duvetorp, Lars-í?ke Levin, Emma Engerstedt Mattsson, Lasse Ryttig - Pages: 393-399

      Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that imposes a substantial economic burden. We conducted a cost-utility analysis from a Swedish healthcare payers perspective using a decision-tree model with a 12-week time horizon. Patients with psoriasis vulgaris could have two 4-week cycles of topical treatment with calcipotriol 50 µg/g and betamethasone 0.5 mg/g as dipropionate (Cal/BD) foam or Cal/BD ointment before progressing to phototherapy/methotrexate. In the base-case analysis, Cal/BD foam dominated over Cal/BD ointment. The increased efficacy of Cal/BD foam resulted in fewer consultations and a decreased risk of progressing to phototherapy/methotrexate. Although Cal/BD foam costs more than Cal/BD ointment, this was offset by lower costs for phototherapy/methotrexate or consultation visits. Sensitivity analyses revealed that the base-case net monetary benefit was robust to plausible variations in key parameters. In conclusion, Cal/BD foam was predicted to be more cost-effective than Cal/BD ointment in the treatment of psoriasis vulgaris.

      The incidence of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma is increasing worldwide. In most epidemiological studies, only the first case of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma is registered, underestimating the burden of the disease. To determine the frequency and detailed characteristics of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma in a Finnish patient cohort, we performed a retrospective 10-year study taking into account multiple tumours in one patient. On the pathology database search and medical record review we identified 774 patients with a total of 1,131 cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas. The crude incidence increased from 18.6/100,000 persons in 2006 to 28.1 in 2015. The location of tumours differed between men and women: the greatest difference concerned cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the ear, with 93% of cases occurring in men. One fourth (24%) of patients had more than one tumour. A small shift from poorly to well-differentiated tumours was seen. In conclusion, the incidence of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma increased, with many patients presenting with multiple tumours.

      The aim of this multicentre, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over, phase-II study was to determine the antipruritic effect of aprepitant vs. placebo in 58 patients with anti-histamine-refractory chronic pruritus in chronic nodular prurigo. Patients were randomized to receive either first oral aprepitant 80 mg/day or placebo for 4 weeks. Following a 2-week wash-out phase, the patients were crossed-over to receive the other treatment for 4 weeks. Primary efficacy criterion was the intra-individual difference between mean itch intensity (visual analogue scale) at baseline compared with the end of treatment period. Prurigo lesions, pruritus course, quality of life, patient benefits, and safety were secondary parameters. No significant differences were found between aprepitant treatment and placebo for any of the parameters investigated. Under the experimental conditions of the study, aprepitant, 80 mg daily for 4 weeks, did not have an antipruritic effect in patients with chronic prurigo.

      Pruritus is a very common symptom in patients, undergoing targeted anticancer therapy. However, the characteristics of pruritus, according to the targeted anticancer agents, are still unclear. The objective of this study was to determine the characteristics of pruritus, induced by targeted anticancer agents, using a questionnaire-based survey. The survey was administered to cancer patients currently receiving anticancer agents. Medical records were also reviewed. A total of 374 cancer patients completed the survey, of which 108 were treated with the targeted therapy. A total of 205 patients had pruritus, of which 66 were under the targeted therapy. Epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor (EGFRI) users showed the highest prevalence rate of itching and numeric rating scale score for itching. The 5-D itch score was also highest among users of EGFRIs. In conclusion, patients receiving EGFRIs suffer from severe pruritus frequently. They not only experienced long lasting and intense itching, causing sleep discomfort, but also developed itching at specific body sites.

  • 99:4 2019 - Psoriasis Incidence and Lifetime Prevalence: Suggestion for a
           Higher Mortality Rate in Older Age-classes among Psoriatic Patients
           Compared to the General Population in Italy

    • Abstract: Elena Pezzolo, Simone Cazzaniga, Paolo Colombo, Liliane Chatenoud, Luigi Naldi - Pages: 400-403

      Data on the psoriasis incidence and prevalence in the Italian population are limited, and a timely and accurate understanding of the disease epidemiology is needed. This ad hoc study investigated psoriasis incidence and lifetime prevalence in a representative sample (n'='14,705) of the Italian population. Information on lifetime history of skin disorders with details about their onset, duration, and treatment was collected. Psoriasis incidence showed a bimodal distribution pattern, with peaks in age classes characteristic of early-onset (35¯?44 years) and late-onset (65¯?74 years) psoriasis. Late-onset psoriasis showed some variations according to the sex, with females being diagnosed earlier than males. Lifetime prevalence of psoriasis was 2.7% (95% confidence interval: 2.5¯?3.0): it increased to 3.5% at age 60¯?64 years, then decreased steadily after age 64, to 1.7% at age>'74 years. This decrease, despite a peak in incidence rates, after age 64, may suggest a higher mortality rate among psoriasis patients in older age classes, compared to the general population.

  • 99:4 2019 - Eye Complications During Dupilumab Treatment for Severe Atopic

    • Abstract: Lina U. Ivert, Carl-Fredrik Wahlgren, Lena Ivert, Maria Lundqvist, Maria Bradley - Pages: 375-378

      Dupilumab, the first biologic approved for treatment of atopic dermatitis, has demonstrated significant clinical effect and quality of life-enhancing capacity in clinical trials. In these, dupilumab-associated conjunctivitis where reported in a minority of patients. The present case series describe 10 patients treated with dupilumab where eye complications were very common. We have described patient characteristics, including FLG mutations, atopic history and clinical effect of dupilumab. Nine of 10 developed eye-complications, most commonly conjunctivitis (in 7/10). Other adverse events were herpes simplex virus uveitis and varicella-zoster virus meningitis. Although our case series is small, we conclude that dupilumab is an effective treatment option in severe atopic dermatitis, but that the risk of adverse events from the eyes and recurrence of herpes virus infections should be kept in mind. Close collaboration with an ophthalmologist is recommended, especially among patients with severe, long-lasting atopic dermatitis and/or previous eye disease.

      Understanding of the epidemiology and healthcare service utilization related to atopic dermatitis is necessary to inform the use of new treatments. This cross-sectional study was based on a group of patients with atopic dermatitis and a matched control group comprised of age- and sex- matched enrolees without atopic dermatitis from a large medical database. Healthcare service utilization usage data were extracted and compared between groups. The study included 116,816 patients with atopic dermatitis and 116,812 controls. Atopic dermatitis was associated with an increased burden of healthcare utilization across the entire spectrum of healthcare services compared with controls. For patients severely affected by atopic dermatitis, the increased burden correlated with disease severity: a high­er frequency of emergency room visits (odd ratio (OR) 1.7; 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.6¯?1.9), dermatology wards hospitalizations (OR 315; 95% CI 0¯?7,342), and overall hospitalizations (OR 3.6; 95% CI 3.3¯?3.9). In conclusion, this study demonstrates an increased burden of healthcare utilization in atopic dermatitis.

  • 99:4 2019 - Mortality of Haemodialysis Patients With and Without Chronic
           Itch: A Follow-up Study of the German Epidemiological Hemodialysis Itch
           Study (GEHIS)

    • Abstract: Katarzyna Grochulska, Robert F. Ofenloch, Thomas Mettang, Elke Weisshaar - Pages: 423-428

      The GEHIS (German Epidemiological Hemodialysis Itch Study) is a representative cohort study started in 2013 with 860 haemodialysis (HD) patients in 25 German dialysis units. Chronic itch (CI) has been reported to be a poor prognostic marker for patients on HD; however, this has not been investigated in a representative patient cohort. In 2017, all HD patients were contacted again to investigate mortality in those with and without CI and to identify its determinants. Patients¯? characteristics, study instruments and CI were assessed, as in 2013. The response rate was 84.2% (n'='724). One-year mortality was 15.3%. Mortality was significantly higher in those with secondary scratch lesions compared with those with non-affected skin. This was also true after controlling for age and sex in a multivariate model. This study demonstrates a high mortality in HD patients; however, mortality depends on itch intensity, not on the occurrence of CI itself.

  • 99:4 2019 - Skin Cancer Associated Genodermatoses: A Literature Review

    • Abstract: Juliane Schierbeck, Tine Vestergaard, Anette Bygum - Pages: 360-369

      Skin cancer has become the most common type of cancer worldwide as a result of environmental exposure and medical treatments. A small group of patients are genetically predisposed to skin cancer and this article is intended as a diagnostic tool when encountering patients with multiple skin cancer lesions. The disorders are described with clinical characteristics, genetics and management. The most common syndromes associated with basal cell carcinoma are: Gorlin¯?Goltz syndrome, Rombo syndrome, and Bazex-Dupré-Christol syndrome. Multiple squamous cell carcinomas can be related to: xeroderma pigmentosum, Ferguson-Smith, Muir-Torre syndrome, Mibelli-type porokeratosis, keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness syndrome, Rothmund-Thomson syndrome, Bloom syndrome, and epidermodysplasia verruciformis. Malignant melanoma can be inherited, as in familial atypical multiple mole melanoma syndrome.

  • 99:4 2019 - Patients with Moderate to Severe Psoriasis Associate with
           Higher Risk of Depression and Anxiety Symptoms: Results of a Multivariate
           Study of 300 Spanish Individuals with Psoriasis

    • Abstract: Maria José Tribó, Marta Turroja, Gemma Castaño-Vinyals, Antonio Bulbena, Elena Ros, Pablo Garcí?a-Martí?nez, Francisco Tausk, Marc Sagristí?, Ramon M. Pujol, Marta Ferran, Fernando Gallardo - Pages: 417-422

      Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease associated with considerable physical and psychological comorbidities. Stress and emotional disturbances have been implicated in both triggering the onset and exacerbation of psoriasis. In order to determine the level of perceived stress and mood alterations in patients with psoriasis and their association with disease severity, 300 individuals completed diverse validated questionnaires assessing stress and psychological mood. Evaluation of perception of disease was also measured. A significant association between psoriasis severity and mood, emotional disturbances and an impact on assessments of the quality of life were observed. Particularly, Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale, Hamilton Rating Scale and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale for Depression detected a significant risk for depression in relation to the disease severity. The association between depression features, anxiety and perceived stress with psoriasis severity is important and can influence the appropriate management of psoriasis.

  • 99:4 2019 - Beliefs About Medicines in Patients with Psoriasis Treated
           with Methotrexate or Biologics: A Cross-sectional Survey Study

    • Abstract: Marisol E. Otero, Juul M.P.A. van den Reek, Peter C.M. van de Kerkhof, Jorre S. Mertens, Marieke M.B. Seyger, Wietske Kievit, Elke M.G.J. de Jong - Pages: 386-392

      Methotrexate (MTX) and biologics are frequently used treatments for psoriasis. Exploring patients¯? beliefs about their treatment may help to elucidate patients¯? attitudes towards these therapies. A cross-sectional survey was conducted using the Beliefs about Medicines Questionnaire-Specific (BMQ-Specific) in patients treated with methotrexate or biologics. BMQ-Specific scores (Necessity and Concerns scales) were calculated and patients were classified as ¯?accepting¯?, ¯?indifferent¯?, ¯?ambivalent¯? or ¯?sceptical¯? towards their treat­ment. Biologics users scored higher on the Necessity scale than did methotrexate users. Both groups had lower Concerns scores than Necessity scores. A high Necessity scale was associated with a low Psoriasis Area and Severity Index score in both groups and long treatment duration in the methotrexate group. Although this study cannot make a direct comparison, it was observed that most patients on biologics could be classified as ¯?accepting¯? (59%), and most patients on MTX could be classified as ¯?indifferent¯? (47%). In conclusion, the BMQ-Specific is useful to identify patients with a sceptical, ambivalent or indifferent profile. These profiles may negatively influence patient¯?s attitude towards their medication.
