Scleroedema adultorum Buschke is a rare skin disease, which can be divided into 3 subtypes: classic type, occurring after respiratory infections; a type lacking association with infections; and a type associated with diabetes. Scleroedema adultorum Buschke is characterized by thickening and tightening of the skin, which typically starts at the neck. In half of patients, spontaneous remission may occur. The aim of this systematic review is to summarize all reported treatments for scleroedema adultorum Buschke, based on articles from PubMed database, using the query "scleroedema adultorum Buschke treatment", English and German, published between 1970 and 2016 and documenting adequate treatments...

INTRODUCTION: Diabetes mellitus and the prediabetic state are associated with a number of skin manifestations. This study is a systematic review of the following manifestations: acanthosis nigricans (AN), skin tags (ST), diabetic dermopathy (DD), rubeosis faciei (RF), pruritus (PR), granuloma annulare (GA), necrobiosis lipoidica (NL), scleroedema diabeticorum (SD) and bullosis diabeticorum (BD). These conditions possibly relate to underlying diabetogenic mechanisms. Our aim was to determine whether skin signs are feasible as cutaneous markers for the prediabetic or diabetic state...

BACKGROUND: Scleroedema adultorum Buschke (SB) is a rare disease involving scleroedema of the neck and shoulders. It can extend to the rest of the trunk and the limbs but characteristically spares the extremities. Three types of SB are distinguished: the first is acute and develops after an infectious disease, the second is of insidious evolution and is associated with monoclonal gammopathy, and the third is associated with type 2 diabetes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We report the case of a type 2 diabetic patient presenting with progressive, oedematous timbering of the trunk associated with impaired mobility, dysphagia and restrictive respiratory syndrome...

AIMS: To analyse systematically therapy-induced lesions of haematopoiesis in chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis (IMF). METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 759 sequential bone marrow (BM) biopsies (median interval 32 months) were performed in 261 patients with IMF. Besides a control group (symptomatic treatment), monotherapies included busulfan, hydroxyurea and interferon. In all therapy groups hypoplasia of varying degree was a frequent finding and often accompanied by a patchy distribution of haematopoiesis...

A 3-year-old Japanese girl with scleroedema was reported. She had had no signs of diabetes but did have a preceding bacterial infection in the tonsils three weeks before the skin lesion appeared. The skin on the face, shoulders, extensor aspect of the upper arms, and proximal half of the forearms was indurated. The skin lesions expanded from the middle part of the forearms to the wrists during the observation period. Thereafter, the induration gradually disappeared. A literature review revealed there were only six reports of scleroedema in children under 15 years old before 1996 in Japan; a total of 166 cases of the disease was reported in the same period...

Scleroedema adultorum Buschke is characterized by progressive hardening of the skin. In contrast to scleroderma the hardening occurs in the skin of the trunk while extremities remain largely free. Internal organs are said not to be involved in scleroedema adultorum Buschke. The full picture of the persistent form of scleroedema adultorum Buschke was observed in two patients. One patient complained of increasing dysphagia with regurgitation and aspiration. Manometry and X-ray cinematographic investigation showed inappropriate relaxation of the upper oesophageal sphincter...

Pseudo-scleroderma should not be confused with true scleroderma, the prognosis of which is unpredictable and often serious. Progressive acrosclerosis must be differentiated from Raynaud's disease, congenital or hereditary disorders of unknown aetiology: Werner's syndrome, acrogeria and progeria; Rothmund-Thomson's syndrome, Steinert's disease, phenylketonuria, disorders of glycogen metabolism; metabolic disorders: mutilating acropathies, scleromyxoedema, porphyria cutanea tarda; occupational and iatrogenic disorders: acroosteolysis, toxic epidermic syndrome (Spain), scleroderma-like change induced by bleomycin, chronic graft-versus-host disease; and leprosy...

A case of scleroedema of Buschke involving skin and myocardium in a 69-year old woman is described. Widespread electrocardiographic abnormalities were present at the height of the disease, which improved over 18 months as the mucopolysaccharide infiltration of the skin cleared.
