INTRODUCTION: Allergic contact dermatitis is an important cause of hand eczema. Patch testing is the only investigation available to prove the diagnosis of allergic contact dermatitis. Exposures to allergens differ according to geographical, occupational, economic and social factors. Accordingly, patterns of allergic contact dermatitis differ in different parts of the world and different regions of the same country. AIM: To study the causes of allergic contact dermatitis in adult patients with hand eczema with the help of patch testing...

Dyshidrotic eczema, also known as dyshidrotic dermatitis or pompholyx, is characterized by pruritic, small tense vesicles mainly on the palmoplantar region and lateral and ventral surfaces of the fingers. While its etiology appears to be related to sweating, as dyshidrotic eczema often occurs in an individual with hyperhidrosis, and the spring allergy season, histologic examination shows an eczematous reaction around the sweat ducts which is not associated with abnormalities of the sweat ducts. More recently, the nomenclature of 'acute and recurrent vesicular hand dermatitis' has been proposed to reflect clinical features of dyshidrotic eczema...

Botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) is renowned for its inhibitory effects on the neuromuscular junction. The evidence for its use in cosmetic dermatology and in non-dermatological indications is well established. We have systemically analysed the evidence for the non-cosmetic dermatological uses of BoNT. This review presents the many small studies showing promising results for the use of BoNT in a multitude of dermatological diseases, including (but not limited to) hyperhidrosis, Darier's disease, Hailey-Hailey disease, pompholyx and hidradenitis suppurativa...

The objective of this study is to investigate the feasibility and safety of single-port microthoracoscopic thoracic sympathicotomy for the treatment of palmar hyperhidrosis. Between January 2008 and March 2013, 56 patients (36 male, 20 female; mean age 25.6 years, age range 16-39 years) underwent single-port microthoracoscopic thoracic sympathicotomy for palmar hyperhidrosis. Nineteen patients (33.9 %) had moderate palmar hyperhidrosis that could thoroughly wet a handkerchief, and 37 (66.1 %) had severe palmar hyperhidrosis with sweat dripping from the palm...

BACKGROUND: Pompholyx is an inflammatory vesiculobullous skin disease of the hands and feet belonging to the spectrum of eczema. OBJECTIVE: To report a severe case of pompholyx, its clinical presentation, and its management. METHODS: A medical chart review was conducted on a patient with this condition. RESULTS: The patient was patch tested according to the North American Contact Dermatitis Group (NACDG) Standard Screening Series, and results were negative...

Hand eczema (HE) is a common and distressing condition that is perplexing to the patient and the physician alike. To study the frequency and clinical features of hand eczema and to correlate the frequency of atopy and contact sensitization with different clinical features a total of 61 clinically diagnosed patient of Hand eczema were included within a period of one year. Patch test was done in 47 patients and graded accordingly. The frequency of hand eczema was 0.57%. Morphologically pompholyx was the most common type while aetiologically endogenous hand eczema was the commonest...

Pompholyx remains a chronic skin affliction without a compelling pathophysiological explanation. The disease is characterized by the sudden onset of vesicles exclusively in the palms and soles which generally resolves. However, the disease may progress and the vesicles may expand and fuse; with chronicity there is deep fissuring. Multiple therapeutic approaches are available, but the disease is often resistant to conventional treatments. Currently, oral alitretinoin is used for patients with resistant chronic disease; however, this therapy is only approved for use in the UK, Europe and Canada...

BACKGROUND: Primary hyperhidrosis (P.H.H.) is characterized by excessive sweating in certain parts of body. It's estimated prevalence is 0%-6.1% in different populations. In Asian population its prevalence is around 3%. In 57% of cases, there is a positive family history. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate and compare the early and late satisfaction, outcomes and complications of thoracoscopic sympathectomy and sympathicotomy in the treatment of primary hyperhidrosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From April 2007 to January 2011, we prospectively treated 60 primary hyperhidrosis patients via thoracoscopic surgery...

BACKGROUND: Both palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP) and pompholyx are clinically characterized by acute eruptions of vesicles or pustules on the palms or soles. OBJECTIVES: This study aims to compare the expression of certain inflammatory mediator genes and proteins between patients with PPP and pompholyx using skin tissue samples. METHODS: Skin biopsies obtained from lesional skin from patients with PPP (n = 7) and pompholyx (n = 5) were analysed by quantitative RT-PCR to measure the mRNA levels of nine genes, including IL-4, IL-8, IL-9, IL-17, IL-22, IFN-γ, CCL-20, granzyme and perforin...

BACKGROUND: Palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP) is a chronic and intensely inflammatory skin disease with pustules, erythema and scaling localized to the palms and soles. Pompholyx is characterized by recurrent crops of vesicles on the lateral aspects of the fingers and the palms and soles. Because both PPP and pompholyx share similar clinical and histological features, it is difficult to differentiate between these two diseases even for dermatologists. OBJECTIVE: To compare the histological features of PPP and pompholyx and to analyse their clinical characteristics...

CONTEXT: Pompholyx (called dyshidrosis by some) is one of the most common conditions and its immune response is presently poorly understood. CASE REPORT: We describe a 58 year old African American female with a clinical history of rheumatoid arthritis and type II diabetes who presented a chronic five-year, itchy vesicular/blistering rash involving her hands and feet. A lesional skin biopsy was taken for hematoxylin and eosin (H & E) analysis. In addition, a multicolor direct immunofluorescence (MDIF) and immunohistochemistry (IHC) studies were performed...

Nickel allergy can result in both cutaneous and systemic manifestations, and can range from mild to severe symptoms. A severe form of this allergy is the Systemic nickel allergy syndrome, clinically characterized by cutaneous manifestions (contact dermatitis, pompholyx, hand dermatitis dyshydrosis, urticaria) with chronic course and systemic symptoms (headache, asthenia, itching, and gastrointestinal disorders related to histopathological alterations of gastrointestinal mucosa, borderline with celiac disease)...

A 16-year-old young man presented with intensely itchy erythematous dermatitis on the body for 1 week and vesicular lesions on the palms and soles for 4 to 5 days. Lesions on the palms and soles were accompanied by severe burning and itching. The patient gave a history of sore throat and fever, 1 week prior to the onset of lesions. A general physical examination was normal, and cutaneous examination revealed multiple, well-defined erythematous scaly plaques with collaret scaling on the trunk and extremities (Figure 1)...

A 62-year-old Chinese patient with recurrent pompholyx submitted his blood sample for pre-treatment thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) pharmacogenetic profiling, and it was found to harbour a novel single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP). The novel SNP, detected by mRNA sequencing, was a c.2T>C (g.11018T>C) transition in the start codon, causing a Met1Thr amino acid change. This finding was confirmed on a subsequent blood sample from the same patient by DNA sequencing. The patient was genotyped as TPMT*1/*29, sequentially named as such following the latest TPMT SNP (TPMT*1/*28) at the time of writing...
