Psoriasiform mucositis

Surabhi Sinha, Rashmi Sarkar, Vijay Kumar Garg
Introduction: Palmoplantar lesions of lichen planus (LP) are uncommon and may not always have classical clinical features of LP. A variety of morphological types has been described in literature. Aim and Objectives: The aim was to study and classify the clinical variants into distinct easily recognisable categories for quick recognition and early treatment initiation. Methods: All patients diagnosed with LP over a period of 5 years were evaluated for palmoplantar lesions in our hospital...

IMPORTANCE: In the limited number of Crohn disease cases involving the head and neck, there is a predilection for mucosal surfaces and rare reports of involvement in the postauricular region. To our knowledge, in all previously reported cases involving the head and neck, the patients had a known diagnosis of Crohn disease. OBSERVATIONS: This case describes a 10-year-old boy with a history of psoriasis and psoriasiform dermatitis who presented with bilateral chronic granulomatous otitis externa, obliteration of the external auditory canal, and fissuring, resulting in separation of the lobule from the preauricular skin...

Acute mucocutaneous methotrexate toxicity is not classically associated with prominent tissue eosinophilia. We present a case of acute methotrexate toxicity associated with pancytopenia and mucocutaneous erosion with interface dermatitis and numerous eosinophils. A 79-year-old male, with a history of psoriasis vulgaris on methotrexate therapy, presented with blisters of the oral mucosa, groin, sacrum, and extremities after daily consumption of methotrexate. Examination revealed blisters and erosions localized to psoriatic plaques, the perineum, and the oral mucosa...

BACKGROUND: Diseases of the foreskin may manifest with an array of pathologic findings, including potentially under-recognized dermatologic conditions. Herein, we summarize an institutional experience in foreskin dermatopathology. METHODS: Diagnoses rendered on foreskin specimens between 1982 and April 2009 were obtained through a computer-based keyword search. Cases given normal, non-specific or descriptive diagnoses were reviewed by a dermatopathologist. RESULTS: Keyword search yielded 414 foreskin diagnoses...

Imiquimod 5% cream is a topical immune-response modifier indicated in the treatment of multiple cutaneous conditions including actinic keratoses, superficial basal cell carcinoma, and condylomata acuminata. In children, it has been approved only for ages 12 and older in the treatment of external genital and perianal warts. It has also been used off label for a variety of pediatric skin disorders, including molluscum contagiosum (MC), trichoepitheliomas, verrucae plana, and verrucae vulgaris. Local and systemic adverse reactions have been reported, with the most frequently reported events being application site reactions including itching, burning, erythema, and erosion...

BACKGROUND: So far there have been no studies focusing on the prevalence of a wide spectrum of oral mucosal lesions (OML) in patients with dermatologic diseases. This is noteworthy as skin lesions are strongly associated with oral lesions and could easily be neglected by dentists. This study aimed to estimate the frequency and socio-behavioural correlates of OML in skin diseased patients attending outpatient's facility of Khartoum Teaching Hospital - Dermatology Clinic, Sudan. METHODS: A cross-sectional hospital-based study was conducted in Khartoum from October 2008 to January 2009...

BACKGROUND: Although precise figures for adverse reactions to nail-care products are not available, it is thought that one of the main risks from artificial nails (ANs) is contact allergy. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the role of allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) as a cause of adverse reactions related to the use of ANs. METHOD: A 4-year retrospective study of patients with suspected ACD from ANs was conducted. Patients tested with the methacrylate artificial nail (MAAN) series were evaluated clinically and patch test results were analysed...

The clinical manifestations of syphilis are variable in appearance and have been described for centuries. The disease has been arbitrarily divided mainly into three stages. Uncommon presentations of syphilis in adults include (a) primary syphilis-atypical forms of chancre vary in size, shape, morphology, and color. Small ulcus durum is single or multiple, grouped, or herpetiform. Giant necrotic and phagedenic chancres are resolved with scar formation. In intratriginous areas, ulcus durum is rhagadiform, linear, "rocket type," or bilateral...

BACKGROUND: Hereditary mucoepithelial dysplasia is a dominantly inherited disease, mainly characterized by chronic mucosal lesions associated with keratitis, non-scarring alopecia, keratosis pilaris and perineal intertrigo. Since the original report by Witkop, this condition has been considered to be a disorder of desmosome/gap junction formation, but there has been no ex vivo investigation of these components using genetic and immunolabelling techniques. OBJECTIVES: To perform light and immunoelectron microscopic studies, and partial genetic analysis on five patients in a family and three sporadic cases and to point out similarities of this rare disorder with chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis and other follicular keratosis syndromes, i...

We report a case of severe lichenoid drug eruption with multiple possible causative agents. A hepatitis C-positive male presented with a short history of painful erosions of the vermilion, lichenoid lesions on the buccal mucosa and glans penis, and erosions and lichenification of the scrotum. In addition, he had a pruritic polymorphic eruption over the scalp, trunk and limbs, comprising psoriasiform and eczematous lesions. He had received combination therapy of pegylated interferon-alpha-2a and ribavirin, along with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor for interferon-induced leucopenia, and propranolol for portal hypertension...

BACKGROUND: Reported cases of syphilis in the United States, Europe and elsewhere are increasing in number. Clinical manifestations are protean, and oral biopsies may be taken where the diagnosis is unsuspected, but data on the histopathology of oral mucosal syphilis are sparse. METHODS: The histopathology of five oral lesions in patients with serologically proven syphilis was reviewed. RESULTS: There were two cases of primary syphilis, one secondary and two tertiary...

We have assessed the cutaneous signs in 73 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), seen during a 5-year period in an English hospital. Most previous information about the cutaneous manifestations of SLE has been obtained from studies performed in the U.S.A. We classified lesions as specific cutaneous and mucosal LE (acute, subacute and chronic) or non-specific LE-related, e.g. photosensitivity, urticaria, erythema, Raynaud's phenomenon or vasculitis. Acute cutaneous LE lesions included a butterfly rash with erythematous macules, telangiectasia or papulosquamous lesions, seen in 37 patients (51%) and facial oedema seen in four patients (5%)...
