Summaries for Prurigo Nodularis

NIH Rare Diseases : 54 Prurigo nodularis (PN) is a skin disease that causes hard, itchy lumps (nodules) to form on the skin. The itching (pruritus) can be intense, causing people to scratch themselves to the point of bleeding or pain. Scratching can cause more skin lesions to appear. The itching is worsened by heat, sweating, or irritation from clothing. In some cases, people with PN have a history of other diseases including eczema (atopic dermatitis), lymphoma, HIV infection, severe anemia, or kidney disease.  The exact cause of PN is unknown. Although scratching is known to cause more nodules to appear, it is unclear what causes the itching to develop in the first place. Diagnosis of the disease is based on observing signs such as extremely itchy skin with the formation of nodules. In some cases, a skin biopsy is used to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment may include corticosteroid creams, oral medications, cryotherapy, or photochemotherapy.

MalaCards based summary : Prurigo Nodularis, also known as nodular prurigo, is related to anhidrosis and peripheral nervous system disease. An important gene associated with Prurigo Nodularis is RNASE3 (Ribonuclease A Family Member 3), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Phospholipase-C Pathway and p70S6K Signaling. The drugs Lidocaine and Peripheral Nervous System Agents have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, kidney and thyroid.
