Actinomycosis is a slowly progressive, chronic infectious disease. It is caused by the genus Actinomyces, which are gram-positive anaerobic bacteria. It presents as a mass-like lesion, composed of bacterial nidus and characteristic granulomatous inflammatory fibrosis. As such, it has frequently been mistaken for a malignancy. Surgical resection is a common procedure in these patients prior to a definite diagnosis. Although actinomycosis can occur in a variety of regions, including oral-cervicofacial, thoracic, and abdominopelvic cavities, the involvement of the pancreas is very rare...

Oral focal mucinosis is a rare condition, clinically characterized by an asymptomatic swelling, without distinct, specific features, which occurs predominantly in adults of the female gender. Its clinical aspect leads to various differential diagnoses, and final diagnosis is only possible by means of histopathological exam, in which a well-delimited myxomatous area containing mucinous material is observed. In the present study, a review of the English-language literature about the lesion, was conducted, covering the period from 1974 to March 2015...

Aquagenic wrinkling of the palms (AWP) is an unusual and rare dermatological condition characterized by excessive palmar wrinkling, occurring within a few minutes of water exposure. Cystic fibrosis (CF) or CF carrier state associated forms, drug induced cases, and idiopathic forms have been described. We report the case of a 27-year-old woman with a 7-year history of transient excessive wrinkling of her palms after brief exposure to water. We present also a comprehensive review of the literature. We believe that AWP has been underdiagnosed thus far and we would like to encourage investigations such as sweat chloride test or genetic studies in these patients because of the association with CF or CF carrier state, particularly when AWP appears in younger ages...

Hyperhidrosis, or abnormally increased sweating, is a condition that may have a primary or secondary cause. Usually medication- induced secondary hyperhidrosis manifests with generalized, rather than focal sweating. We report a 32-year-old woman with a history of palmoplantar hyperhidrosis for 15 years who presented for treatment and was prescribed oral glycopyrrolate. One month later, the palmoplantar hyperhidrosis had resolved, but she developed new persistent craniofacial sweating. After an unsuccessful trial of clonidine, oxybutynin resolved the craniofacial hyperhidrosis...
