The histiocytoses are rare disorders characterized by the accumulation of macrophage, dendritic cell, or monocyte-derived cells in various tissues and organs of children and adults. More than 100 different subtypes have been described, with a wide range of clinical manifestations, presentations, and histologies. Since the first classification in 1987, a(More)
Adult's mastocytosis is usually associated with persistent systemic involvement and c-kit 816 mutation, while pediatrics disease is mostly limited to the skin and often resolves spontaneously. We prospectively included 142 adult patients with histologically proven mastocytosis. We compared phenotypic and genotypic features of adults patients whose disease(More)
Haemopoietic stem-cell transplantation is a life-saving treatment for severe combined immune deficiency. However, there has been little long-term follow-up of this treatment. There is evidence for the persistance of partial immunodeficiency associated with significant infections, including severe human papillomavirus (HPV) disease. We did a retrospective(More)
Neisseria meningitidis is a strict human pathogen that closely interacts with human endothelial cells via type IV pili in vitro. To decipher whether this interaction plays a role in vivo, we set up an experimental model of fulminant meningococcemia in human skin grafted SCID mice using the wild-type strain 2C4.3. Human skin and mouse tissues were sampled 24(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess interrater reliability in the diagnosis of malignant melanoma in children. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS We collected 85 slides of melanomas diagnosed in patients younger than 17 years through a network of dermatopathologists and dermatologists. The slides were classified into 3 categories: (1) slides from children with metastatic(More)

Combined immunodeficiency (CID) refers to inborn errors of human T cells that also affect B cells because of the T cell deficit or an additional B cell-intrinsic deficit. In this study, we report six patients from three unrelated families with biallelic loss-of-function mutations in RLTPR, the mouse orthologue of which is essential for CD28 signaling. The(More)
Solid organ transplant recipients are at risk for invasive fungal diseases, and are also exposed to healthcare-associated mucormycosis. Mainly causing localized cutaneous mucormycosis, Mucor irregularis infection is reported for the first time in a kidney-transplant recipient. A healthcare-associated origin was highly suspected in this case. We performed a(More)
A retrospective analysis of 173 skin biopsy specimens of myeloid leukemia cutis (MLC) was performed to determine histologic and immunophenotypic criteria that could distinguish the varied myeloid disorders from one another. For the study, 11 relevant histologic items were scored and 12 antigens were studied (CD68 [KP1], CD163, CD14, CD4, myeloperoxidase(More)
BACKGROUND Subcutaneous panniculitis-like T cell lymphomas represent a rare and difficult to diagnose entity of cutaneous T cell lymphomas. SPTL affects predominantly young adults and presents with multifocal subcutaneous nodules and frequently associated autoimmune features. The pathogenesis of SPTL is not completely understood. METHODS The aim of this(More)
