REVIEW
A Molpariya, V Ramesh
Lichen scrofulosorum (LS), a tuberculid affecting children and young adults, usually presents with asymptomatic skin-coloured to erythematous follicular and perifollicular papules over the trunk and extremities. An underlying focus of tuberculosis can be detected, but occasionally other mycobacterial infections may be responsible. The eruption is associated with a positive tuberculin test or positive interferon-gamma release assay. Perifollicular granulomas and absence of bacilli are the histopathological characteristics...

It is well known that primary systemic amyloidosis [light chain (AL) amyloidosis] is associated with hidden dyscrasia or multiple myeloma. Acquired cutis laxa (cutis laxa acquisita; CLA) has also been described in patients with plasma cell dyscrasias, including multiple myeloma. We report a case in which haemorrhagic oral bullae were the first sign of an undiagnosed primary systemic amyloidosis related to multiple myeloma IgG-λ and previously diagnosed CLA. There is only one report in literature of this rare triple association; however, in that case the patient did not have oral mucosal involvement or bullous amyloidosis...

Urticarial vasculitis (UV) is a mainly leucocytoclastic vasculitis with urticarial plaques. Treating these patients is challenging as the available treatments have poor efficacy. Oral corticosteroids are considered the first-line treatment, but H1 antihistamines, dapsone, colchicine, antimalarials, ciclosporin and antileucotrienes have all been tried also. However, because of their adverse effects and/or lack of efficacy, new agents are still needed. Omalizumab, an anti-IgE antibody, shows efficacy in chronic spontaneous urticaria, and might also be a good treatment for angio-oedema and urticarial vasculitis...

E Ginoux, M Perier Muzet, N Poulalhon, S Debarbieux, S Dalle, L Thomas
BACKGROUND: Amelanotic nail tumours are difficult to diagnose. Dermoscopy is an accessible tool successfully used in diagnosis of amelanotic or melanotic skin tumours. We have previously shown the usefulness of dermoscopy in the preoperative diagnosis of onychomatricoma (OM). In this study, we completed this work by identifying additional intraoperative criteria to better establish the initial diagnosis of this tumour. AIMS: Evaluation of intraoperative dermoscopy in a small series of OM cases in order to define relevant diagnostic criteria...

Pilomatrixomas are benign, calcified epitheliomas of the hair follicle, predominately affecting children and commonly presenting in the head and neck region. The current literature is almost unanimous in recommending surgical excision. Reconstruction of these defects may require the need for a skin graft, resulting in poor cosmetic outcome and donor site morbidity. We present two cases demonstrating the benefits of minimal access incisions for pilomatrixomas in children. We recommend that multiple or recurrent lesions should prompt referral to a specialist for management and long-term follow-up...

L Ferguson, H Chong, M Singh
Ecthyma gangrenosum (EG) is often defined as a cutaneous manifestation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa septicaemia, typically secondary to neutropenia. There is increasing recognition that a broader definition is warranted, as numerous causative organisms and predisposing conditions have been reported. We describe two cases of EG that occurred without bacteraemia. In this atypical subset of cases, the skin is thought to represent the primary inoculation site from which haematogenous spread can occur. The first case occurred in the context of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, a rarely reported association...

BACKGROUND: Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCPyV), a newly described oncogenic virus, has been found in association with tumours other than Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC). As yet, little is known about the involvement or influence of MCPyV on the development of these tumours and its prevalence in various populations. AIM: To assess the prevalence of MCPyV DNA in cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC). METHODS: The prevalence of MCPyV DNA was assessed in 96 cases of NMSC in a Brazilian population comprising 76 subjects, and these results were correlated with epidemiological and demographical data...

Leishmaniasis is endemic in several geographic areas of the world. In each of these areas, particular species of Leishmania with differing aggressiveness to humans predominate. In the European Mediterranean basin, cutaneous leishmaniasis usually presents with discrete, self-healing skin lesions. Although it is known that tumour necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors may increase the risk of developing infections such as tuberculosis, there is scarce literature on Leishmania infections in patients treated with these drugs...

N Dinani, M Ali, L Liu, J McGrath, J Mellerio
Punctate palmoplantar keratoderma type 1 (PPPK1) is a rare autosomal dominant inherited skin disease, characterized by multiple hyperkeratotic lesions on the palms and soles. The causative gene for PPPK1 has been identified as AAGAB, which encodes α- and γ-adaptin-binding protein p34. We describe the clinical features in three unrelated families with PPPK1, and report three recurrent causative mutations in AAGAB.

Palmar fasciitis and polyarthritis syndrome (PFPAS) is an uncommon disorder characterized by diffuse inflammation of the palmar fascia, tendon sheaths, and joints of the fingers and wrists, which rapidly progresses to flexion contracture of the hands. This paraneoplastic syndrome, originally linked to ovarian carcinoma, has also been associated with multiple different malignancies. As PFPAS usually precedes the detection of cancer, its symptoms should raise the suspicion of an underlying malignancy and should be thoroughly investigated...
