Branchial cleft cyst, sinuses, and fistulae are among the most commonly encountered congenital anomalies in pediatric otolaryngic practice. They can present difficulty in diagnosis and surgical management. Here, I report a case of 14-year-old boy who presented with asymptomatic, congenital swelling located just below the jawline in the lateral part of the neck. The lesion was excised surgically. Histopathology showed the cyst lined by squamous as well as columnar ciliated epithelium, which was a characteristic finding of branchial cleft cyst...

A 57 year healthy farmer with congenital nail pterygium presented with a verrucous growth on nail bed since 8 months. He was not diabetic and HIV rapid card test negative. Our clinical diagnosis was chromoblastomycosis but culture showed growth of curvularia species on two occasions and histopathology showed hyphal and yeast forms of the pigmented fungus. After excision biopsy patient was started on oral itraconazole. This case is reported due to rarity of verrucous cutaneous lesions caused by curvularia in immunocompetent individuals...

Synovial sarcoma is a type of malignancy which usually occurs near the joints of the arm, neck, or leg. It is a sarcoma of soft tissue and accounts for 5-10% of all adult soft tissue sarcomas in the world. We present a case with primary superficial cutaneous synovial sarcoma without involvement of the underlying knee joint. It is a very rare condition, and to the best of our knowledge, it is the second report of this topic. Although it is rare among soft tissue tumors, the dermatologists should have precise attention to this skin tumor, as early diagnosis is associated with lower metastatic rate and therefore better prognosis...

A 70-year-old woman presented with generalized reticulate pigmentation, scarring alopecia, and few discrete, violaceous plaques over the trunk and forearm. Dermoscopic evaluation of the reticulate plaque showed reticulate hyperpigmentation with multiple telangiectasias, and skin biopsy showed lichenoid interface dermatitis with marked pigment incontinence. Thus, a final diagnosis of poikiloderma due to lichen planus pigmentosus was considered.

Focal dermal hypoplasia is a rare disorder inherited in an X-linked dominant pattern and is usually antenatally lethal in males. We report a surviving male with postzygotic de novo mutation p.E300* in exon 10 of PORCN gene with mosaicism, earlier reported in a female of Thai origin. This is the first report of this mutation from the Indian subcontinent.

Piyabi Sarkar, Keya Basu, Mamata Guha Mallick Sinha
Histoplasmosis is a systemic fungal infection caused by dimorphic fungus, Histoplasma capsulatum. Immunocompetent individuals usually have self-limiting or localized disease whereas immunocompromised individuals develop disseminated disease. The occurrence of progressive disseminated histoplasmosis in juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus is extremely rare with only one reported case in literature showing such association. Therefore, we report a case of severe opportunistic fungal infection caused by Histoplasma in a 13-year-old girl who was diagnosed with juvenile lupus erythematosus, subsequently developed septic shock and died of the disease despite of aggressive antifungal therapy...

BACKGROUND: The exposure of skin to ultraviolet radiation and temperature differs significantly during the day. It is reasonable that biophysical parameters of human skin have periodic daily fluctuation. The objective of this study was to study the fluctuations of various biophysical characteristics of Middle Eastern skin in standardized experimental conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seven biophysical parameters of skin including stratum corneum hydration, transepidermal water loss, pH, sebum, elasticity, skin color, and erythema index were measured at three time points (8 a...
