BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Women who have undergone bariatric surgery are susceptible to nutritional deficiencies in subsequent pregnancies. We highlight the importance of dermatologists in the early recognition of cutaneous signs of malnutrition occurring in this specific clinical setting. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We compare clinical characteristics of two young women with dermatological signs of combined post-gestational nutritional deficiencies following Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery...

Alagille syndrome, also known as arteriohepatic dysplasia, is a multisystem autosomal dominant disorder characterized by chronic cholestasis due to a paucity of intrahepatic bile ducts, peripheral pulmonary artery stenosis with associated vertebral, ocular, and renal anomalies, and characteristic facies. We report a case of Alagille syndrome in a 3-year-old boy with associated pruritus, follicular keratoses, palmar pits, and keratoderma-like changes over the dorsum of the hands. There have been single isolated case reports of phrynoderma and keratoderma...

BACKGROUND: In the treatment of phrynoderma, various nutrients have been tried in different dosages and routes with variable therapeutic outcomes. AIMS: The present study was undertaken to compare the efficacy of various nutrients in the treatment of phrynoderma. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: An open label randomized controlled study was conducted in the out-patient department of Dermatology in a tertiary care hospital. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The patients were divided into group of five and each patient received one of the five regimens [10 injections of Vitamin A 1 lakh units, intramuscularly (IM) on alternate day, 10 injections of Vitamin B complex, 2cc IM on alternate day, 2 table spoon of safflower oil, two times daily with meals, Tab Vitamin E 400mg once daily, and only topical keratolytic (salicylic acid 3% ointment) two times daily] respectively...

Phrynoderma is a type of follicular hyperkeratosis associated with nutritional deficiencies. It is rarely seen in developed countries, although cases have been reported in patients with severe malnutrition or malabsorption secondary to various causes. This report describes a 19-year-old patient with poorly controlled Crohn's disease and malnutrition who developed the characteristic hyperkeratotic papules and plaques on his trunk and extremities in the setting of low serum vitamin A levels. To our knowledge, there are no reports of phrynoderma associated with Crohn's disease...

Phrynoderma is a type of follicular hyperkeratosis located primarily on the extensor surfaces of the extremities. It is most commonly seen in Africa and Southeast Asia, where it is correlated with malnutrition; however, it is rare in developed countries, where it is often the result of malabsorption secondary to pancreatic insufficiency, colectomy, chronic giardiasis, and bariatric surgery. Here, we report a case of a 51-year-old white male patient, who presented to our Institute with a 1-year history of diffuse, reddish-brown asymptomatic papules associated with follicular nodules...

Biliopancreatic diversion is a predominantly malabsorptive bariatric procedure that can lead to the development of several nutrition complications, including fat-soluble vitamin deficiencies. Routine supplementation with vitamins and trace elements and a strict medical follow-up are essential to prevent these nutrition risks. Vitamin A deficiency is common after bariatric surgery but rarely causes clinical symptoms. Case reports have described ophthalmological and fetal complications associated with vitamin A deficiency after malabsorptive bariatric surgery...

BACKGROUND: Phrynoderma is a type of follicular hyperkeratosis. Various nutritional deficiency disorders have been implicated in the etiology of phrynoderma. AIM: To determine clinical features of phrynoderma and its association with nutritional deficiency signs.

Biliopancreatic diversion (BPD) is a malabsorptivebariatric procedure can lead to the development of several nutritional complications, including fat-soluble vitamins deficiencies. Routine supplementation with vitamins and trace elements and a close follow-up long-term can prevent these nutritional risks. Vitamin A participates in ocular metabolism, epithelial differentiation, growth, and embryogenesis. Have been described several cases of ophthalmological and fetal complications associated with vitamin A deficiency in patients who have undergone BPD...

BACKGROUND: Multiple minute digitate hyperkeratosis (MMDH) is a rare disorder of keratinization with many different names. OBJECTIVE: We present a case of MMDH and review the literature. We propose and discuss the classification the digitate keratoses, which include MMDH, lichen spinulosus, phrynoderma, spiny keratoderma, arsenical keratosis, multiple filiform verrucae, postirradiation digitate keratosis, trichodysplasia spinulosa, and hyperkeratotic spicules. We present a table of suggested and synonymous terms and propose a diagnostic algorithm for these digitate keratoses...

REVIEW
Sowmya Kaimal, Devinder Mohan Thappa
Diet has an important role to play in many skin disorders, and dermatologists are frequently faced with the difficulty of separating myth from fact when it comes to dietary advice for their patients. Patients in India are often anxious about what foods to consume, and what to avoid, in the hope that, no matter how impractical or difficult this may be, following this dictum will cure their disease. There are certain disorders where one or more components in food are central to the pathogenesis, e.g. dermatitis herpetiformis, wherein dietary restrictions constitute the cornerstone of treatment...

Phrynoderma is a type of follicular hyperkeratosis attributed to various nutritional deficiencies, most notably vitamin A. We report a case of a 31-year-old mentally-deficient man who was a resident of a voluntary welfare nursing home. He presented with characteristic hyperkeratotic follicular papules on his trunk in a setting of low serum level of vitamin A and malnutrition. Although commonly seen in South and East Asia, it is rarely reported in Singapore. However, there is still a population at risk here--patients with malabsorption and eating disorders, and institutionalised persons...

Phrynoderma is a rare form of follicular hyperkeratosis associated with deficiencies in vitamins A or C or essential fatty acids. We report a 6-year-old boy with an unusual presentation of phrynoderma, characterized by multiple minute digitate hyperkeratoses associated with hair casts and related to a severe deficiency in vitamins A and C complicating a chronic intestinal giardiasis. The lesions responded well to oral vitamins A and C combined with albendazole treatment. Vitamin A deficiency-related phrynoderma is rare in western countries and is usually caused by digestive malabsorption resulting from large intestine resection or pancreatic failure...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Nutritional deficiency, a global problem, remains uncommon in developed nations. Associated morbidity and mortality make it imperative that clinicians remain familiar with the clinical signs and symptoms of nutritional deficiencies to facilitate diagnosis. This article will review the cutaneous findings and recent literature regarding B12, niacin, zinc, vitamin A, kwashiorkor, biotin and selenium deficiencies, along with the clinical entities of noma and phrynoderma...

Phrynoderma is a distinctive form of follicular hyperkeratosis associated with nutritional deficiency. Although originally thought to represent vitamin A deficiency, several studies have demonstrated multiple etiologies. Characteristic skin lesions are hyperkeratotic papules that first appear on the extensor surfaces of the extremities, shoulders, and buttocks. We report a 14-month-old boy with malnourishment and hyperkeratotic papules and plaques with histologic changes typical of phrynoderma. Despite an extensive evaluation, a specific nutritional deficiency was not identified...
