1. Pathergy testing: prospective comparison of dermatoscopic evaluation and naked eye examination. (PubMed)

Pathergy testing: prospective comparison of dermatoscopic evaluation and naked eye examination. Pathergy phenomenon is a non-specific tissue hyperreactivity reaction due to trauma and is a minor diagnostic criterion of Behcet's disease. In this study, 100 patients with a suspicion of Behcet's disease who were referred to Cerrahpasa Medical Faculty Dermatology department between 01.11.2014 and 31.01.2015 are included. Skin pathergy tests were applied to all the patients and results were (...) ). This study revealed that naked eye evaluation of pathergy test results can yield different results among different interpreters. Use of dermatoscopy during the evaluation process decreases interobserver variation and subjectivity of the test.

2. Absence of donor-site pathergy following fractional autologous full-thickness skin grafting in pyoderma gangrenosum. (PubMed)

Absence of donor-site pathergy following fractional autologous full-thickness skin grafting in pyoderma gangrenosum. Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is an uncommon inflammatory skin disorder, often associated with arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and/or hematologic malignancies [1]. A classic feature of PG is the development or worsening of lesions at areas that experience trauma, also known as pathergy. Autologous skin grafting may be challenging in these patients due to the potential (...) for pathergy at the donor site. We are presenting a case of a patient diagnosed with PG, whereby we utilized a novel fractional full-thickness skin harvesting device which did not result in pathergy.

3. Intracardiac thrombosis in Behçet's Disease successfully treated with immunosuppressive agents: A case of vascular pathergy phenomenon (Full text)

Intracardiac thrombosis in Behçet's Disease successfully treated with immunosuppressive agents: A case of vascular pathergy phenomenon Behçet's Disease (BD) is a rare multi-systemic inflammatory disorder classified as a systemic vasculitis of unknown aetiology. Vascular involvement occurs in approximately 5-51.6% cases, affecting venous and arterial vessels. Cardiac involvement is rare in BD (6%). There have been published approximately 93 cases of BD associated with intracardiac thrombosis (...) procedure could have acted as a trigger for the posterior acute attack of the disease, representing a 'vascular pathergy phenomenon'. Vascular BD has to be suspected in cases of thrombosis recurrence despite correct anticoagulation, and intense immunosuppressive treatment should be considered.

4. A novel case of renal pathergy reaction in a Behçet's disease patient complicated by IgA vasculitis. (Full text)

A novel case of renal pathergy reaction in a Behçet's disease patient complicated by IgA vasculitis. A pathergy reaction is defined as a hyperreactivity of the skin in response to minimal trauma, which is important in the diagnosis of Behçet's disease (BD). However, a pathergy reaction may not be restricted to the skin, and little is known about whether an invasive medical procedure can induce the reaction. Here we present a pathergy reaction induced by renal biopsy, an invasive procedure.A 46 (...) of IgAV, and elucidated the etiology of the unexplainable symptoms. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of renal pathergy. This case enlightens clinicians to the fact that not only a needle stimulation but also an invasive procedure can cause a pathergy reaction.

6. The association of pathergy reaction and active clinical presentations of Behçet’s disease (Full text)

The association of pathergy reaction and active clinical presentations of Behçet’s disease The pathergy skin test is a hypersensitivity reaction to a prick skin trauma caused by a pin or a needle, which is considered as a specific presentation in Behçet's disease (BD) and the precise mechanism of this test is not well elucidated. This study was designed to evaluate the association of pathergy reaction (PR) with the active clinical manifestations of BD patients, to assess the clinical (...) importance of PR.This was a cohort study on 1675 BD patients who fulfilled the entry criteria based on the International Criteria for Behçet's Disease (ICBD) from 1975 to 2011. The patients were divided into two groups; the pathergy positive group included 841 patients (50.2%) and the pathergy negative group 834 patients (49.8%). The active mucocutaneous and systemic disease manifestations were analyzed according to the presence of the PR. The odds ratio and 95% confidence interval (95% CI) were

7. Oral ulcerations after placement of orthodontic braces and skin pustules after laser hair removal: novel inducers of pathergy reactions in new-onset Behçet's disease (Full text)

Oral ulcerations after placement of orthodontic braces and skin pustules after laser hair removal: novel inducers of pathergy reactions in new-onset Behçet's disease A 25-year-old man was admitted to our hospital, with fever, severe ulceration of the oral and pharyngeal mucosa, and pustules on his skin. These pathergy-like lesions had emerged after placement of orthodontic braces and laser therapy for hair removal, respectively. The patient's clinical condition, together with his ethnic (...) background, pointed to the diagnosis of Behçet's disease. Treatment with colchicine and prednisone resulted in rapid improvement of his symptoms. Pathergy reactions in response to placement of dental braces and laser hair removal are a rare first presentation of Behçet's disease. 2016 BMJ Publishing Group Ltd.

10. Fatal Pyoderma Gangrenosum with Pathergy after Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (Full text)

Fatal Pyoderma Gangrenosum with Pathergy after Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Surgeons and others who perform invasive procedures should be aware of the possibility of pyoderma gangrenosum and the risk of pathergy in patients who have a history of unexplained skin ulcers or poor wound-healing. We report the case of a 70-year-old man in whom diffuse erythema over the anterior chest wall and marked leukocytosis developed after coronary artery bypass grafting. This prompted débridement (...) and opening of the sternotomy wound. The cause of the erythema was pyoderma gangrenosum that expressed the pathergy phenomenon. The pyoderma gangrenosum subsequently involved the saphenous vein harvest site, a chest-tube site, and a previously healed abdominal scar. The patient died when an exposed saphenous vein graft was perforated. To our knowledge, this is the 9th reported case of pathergy due to pyoderma gangrenosum after coronary artery bypass grafting and the first with a fatal outcome.

12. Folgoration as an Example of Pathergy in a Patient Affected by Pyoderma Gangrenosum and Takayasu's Arteritis (Full text)

Folgoration as an Example of Pathergy in a Patient Affected by Pyoderma Gangrenosum and Takayasu's Arteritis Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a neutrophilic dermatosis of unknown aetiology. Clinical manifestations of PG are characterized by destructive, necrotizing, and noninfective ulceration of the skin. 20-30% of cases are initiated and aggravated by minor trauma or surgery, a phenomenon named pathergy. PG is related to several autoimmune diseases including ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease (...) , rheumatoid arthritis, and monoclonal gammopathy. The association with Takayasu's arteritis (TA), a chronic inflammatory and stenotic disease of large and medium-sized arteries, is instead less common. We report a case of PG associated with TA that was induced by an accident with folgoration of the skin; in this case the folgoration can be considered as an exemple of Pathergy, that is, a characteristic feature of PG.

13. Eruptive postoperative squamous cell carcinomas exhibiting a pathergy-like reaction around surgical wound sites. (PubMed)

Eruptive postoperative squamous cell carcinomas exhibiting a pathergy-like reaction around surgical wound sites. The isomorphic response of Koebner and the pathergy skin reaction have not classically been associated with neoplastic processes such as cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).We report 5 patients who developed postoperative eruptive SCCs within and around the healed or healing sites of excised nonmelanoma skin cancers. The original cancers were all excised with histologically tumor (...) was approximately 6 weeks and histologic examination of the nodules demonstrated well-differentiated SCC.This study is limited by its relatively small number of cases.Acutely eruptive SCC is a rare but significant postoperative complication of skin cancer surgery. Furthermore, this case series suggests that some individuals appear to be predisposed to this recurrent, pathergy-like reaction involving SCC.

comorbid factors. Pyoderma gangrenosum is most commonly treated with immunosuppressants or anti-inflammatory agents and is often worsened by surgical procedures due to the presence of pathergy. In acute cases, a course of anti-inflammatory treatments works well in alleviating symptoms and reducing ulcerations and residual scarring. However, in chronic cases with the presence of severe scarring and necrotic ulcerations, the simple implementation of systemic immunosuppressants is frequently ineffective
