Primary cicatricial alopecias (PCAs) are a group of permanent hair loss disorders, of which the pathogenesis is still poorly understood. The alopecia and excoriation (AE) mouse strain is a dominant mutant generated from ethyl nitrosourea mutagenesis. AE mice exhibit a progressive alopecia phenotype similar to that seen in PCAs, resulting from a point(More)
Cutaneous and systemic plasmacytosis (CSP) is a rare disorder characterized by disseminated reddish brown plaques and polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia. The lesions of CSP are histologically characterized by an infiltration of mature polyclonal plasma cells, which display similar pathological features to the plasma cell-type Castleman disease (CD). The(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of Mycobacterium marinum infection has been increasing. First-line antituberculous drugs and other common antibiotics are effective for most cutaneous M. marinum infections; however, treatment failure still occurs in some rare cases. We report a case of a 70-year-old man with refractory cutaneous infection caused by M. marinum.(More)
OBJECTIVE To improve understanding of the clinical and histopathological features of early stage dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans(DFSP). METHODS The clinical data and histopathological findings of 14 cases of early stage DFSP diagnosed in Institute of Dermatology, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences from 2008 to 2014 were retrospectively analyzed.

OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical presentation, histopathological features, progression, and treatment of lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP). METHODS A retrospective review was performed on clinicopathological data of 22 patients diagnosed with LyP from June 2010 to March 2015 in Institute of Dermatology, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union(More)
Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) tetramer technology offers a powerful means to study specific T cell populations of interest. To investigate the immune response of H-2Db-restricted CD8+ T cells in immunotherapy, we prepared the H-2Db tetramer and verified its effectiveness in enumerating the CD8+ T cells specific for the lymphocytic choriomeningitis(More)
