Tattooing is a procedure where ink is applied to an area of the skin, mostly intraepidermally (1). This procedure is carried out mainly for aesthetic purposes. Lately, it has been used as a corrective medical procedure following amputation of mammilla. The procedure is aggressive (2), and the fact that skin is punctured many times with the same needle which cannot be fully sterilized may cause infection of the treated area with bacterial, fungal, or viral agents that may lead to health consequences manifesting in the form of verrucae vulgaris, molluscum contagiosum, and herpes simplex...

Dear Editor, Gestational pemphigoid (GP) is a rare autoimmune bullous dermatosis in pregnancy. GP usually occurs during the second or third month of pregnancy. It clinically manifests as the development of either early-onset urticarial lesions or late-onset subepidermal blisters that may linger for weeks or even months. Herein we report the case of a 45-year-old woman with the distinctive clinical onset of GP. A forty-five-year-old woman, gravida I, para 0, at 27 weeks gestation, was referred for evaluation to our Department with an extensive pruritic eruption that had developed over the previous 7 days...

Clindamycin is a lincomycin-derived antibiotic useful for the treatment of anaerobic and Gram-positive aerobic bacterial infections. Cutaneous adverse reactions are usually maculopapular exanthemas, although hypersensitivity syndrome, acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, and Stevens-Johnson syndrome have also been reported (1). We report the case of a patient with a maculopapular rash triggered by clindamycin who developed cutaneous lesions on striae distensae (SD). A 47-year-old woman was referred to our clinic for pruritic cutaneous lesions which had started 6 days earlier...

Once believed to be a rare disease in developed countries, recent data suggest that there is a surge in incidence of congenital syphilis in many developed countries. Diagnosis of congenital syphilis can be difficult because more than two-thirds of affected infants are asymptomatic at birth, and signs of symptomatic infants may be nonspecific or subtle. On top of this, some affected infants may have atypical presentations. Familiarity with the diverse presentations is essential to diagnosis. We report a 2-week-old male infant with congenital syphilis whose cutaneous manifestations included diffuse, erythematous keratoderma with desquamation and fissures on his hands and feet, multiple linear scaly fissures at the angles of his mouth, and onychauxis of the fingernails and toenails To our knowledge, diffuse, erythematous keratoderma of the hands and feet and thick nails have not been reported previously in congenital syphilis...

Purpose: Leser-Trélat syndrome consists of appearance of a solid tumor-like carcinoma breast, colon, or stomach following eruption of multiple seborrheic keratoses (SK) of the skin. We present an unusual and possibly the first case report of Leser-Trélat syndrome in a male patient with a history of mastectomy for breast carcinoma who presented to us with a second malignancy in the form of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) of the lower eyelid. Procedure: A 75-year-old male presented in 2014 with a history of modified radical mastectomy for infiltrating ductal carcinoma of the left breast which was performed 11 years prior to the day of presentation...

Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a drug reaction involving skin and less commonly mucosal membranes. The common manifestation is localized well-demarcated patches or plaques appeared following receiving of a culprit drug. When re-exposure occurs, the rashes will appear at areas involved in previous episodes. Limited reports on bullous FDE due to ibuprofen have been documented before. Herein, we described an elderly man who experienced multifocal lesions in his oral mucosa, penis, and multiple sites of skin following ibuprofen ingestion confirmed as FDE by pathological studies...

REVIEW

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an inflammatory neoplasia of myeloid precursor cells driven by mutations in the mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway. When disease involves the skin, LCH most commonly presents as a seborrheic dermatitis or eczematous eruption on the scalp and trunk. Evaluation for involvement of other organ systems is essential, because 9 of 10 patients presenting with cutaneous disease also have multisystem involvement. Clinical manifestations range from isolated disease with spontaneous resolution to life-threatening multisystem disease...

BACKGROUND: Dasatinib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor indicated for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Skin rashes are common, occurring in about a quarter of patients treated, and are generally mild. The commonest rash is a keratosis pilaris-like eruption. A neutrophilic dermatosis has rarely been reported. OBJECTIVE: We report a patient whose CML was successfully treated with dasatinib and who several years later developed episodes of a neutrophilic dermatosis recurring at the same sites...

Pigeon lice are insects that feed on feathers of these birds; their life cycle includes egg, nymph and adult and they may cause dermatoses in humans. Four persons of the same family, living in an urban area, presented with widespread intensely pruritic erythematous papules. A great number of lice were seen in their house, which moved from a nest of pigeons located on the condenser of the air-conditioning to the dormitory of one of the patients. Even in urban environments, dermatitis caused by parasites of birds is a possibility in cases of acute prurigo simplex...

We herein report the case of a 61-year-old Japanese cirrhotic patient who developed rat bite fever (RBF) and whose first presentation was serious clinical features mimicking those of Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP). In addition to the critical clinical conditions, since the histopathology from purpuric skin eruptions was not inconsistent with that of HSP, therapy with prednisolone was promptly started in order to prevent his death. However, initial blood culture on admission yielded a small and slow-growing bacterial growth, which was gradually revealed by further subculture to be a peculiar bacterium, Streptobacillus moniliformis, leading to a definitive diagnosis of RBF...

Cutaneous lymphangitis carcinomatosa (CLC) is a rare form of cutaneous metastasis that causes lymphoedema and various eruptions. We report a case of lung cancer with CLC that caused both superior vena cava (SVC) stenosis and cervicofacial oedema, suggestive of SVC syndrome. A 64-year-old woman with lung adenocarcinoma presented with cervicofacial oedema and erythema, followed by severe dyspnoea 2 months after four cycles of carboplatin, pemetrexed and bevacizumab triplet therapy. Although chest CT indicated SVC stenosis, cervicofacial oedema remained despite treating the SVC stenosis via balloon dilation...

The syndromes synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis (SAPHO) and chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) constitute a group of chronic relapsing inflammatory osteoarticular disorders with frequently associated skin eruptions such as palmoplantar pustulosis and acne conglobata and rather characteristic imaging features in the form of osteitis and/or hyperostosis. CRMO predominantly occurs in children/adolescents and SAPHO in adults. Any skeletal site can be involved, and the imaging appearances vary, depending on the patient's age and the stage/age of the lesion...

Ruxolitinib is a small molecule JAK-2 inhibitor approved for the treatment of certain myeloproliferative neoplasms. Ruxolitinib-related skin toxicity is extremely rare. We report herein an unusual erythematous skin eruption with necrotic centers involving lower extremities in a patient with primary myelofibrosis treated with ruxolitinib. Awareness of this unusual skin toxicity with ruxolitinib becomes even more important as JAK-2 inhibition might soon find clinical applications in dermatology.

Background: We experienced a rare case of immediate type hypersensitivity and late phase reaction to anti-tubercular therapy consisting of ethambutol and levofloxacin, which occurred in close succession, giving the appearance of a single, continuous reaction to one drug. Case presentation: The patient was a man in his 70's who began therapy consisting of isoniazide, rifampicin, and ethambutol for pulmonary tuberculosis. Since the patient had a drug eruption within several hours after the start of his treatment, his reaction to ethambutol was assessed first among the three suspected drugs using an oral challenge test...

Papuloerythroderma of Ofuji (PEO) is an erythroderma-like eruption with flat-topped papules that spare the skin folds (a "deck-chair sign" finding). Many infections, medications, and systemic diseases have been associated with PEO, including cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL). The relationship between the clinical presentation of PEO and CTCL remains poorly elucidated. Clinical, laboratory, and histopathological data were obtained from the Lymphoma Clinic at the Ottawa Hospital, Canada. We report 5 patients with deck-chair-sign-positive CTCL, mycosis fungoides, and Sézary syndrome variants...

A 50-year-old African-American woman presented to the dermatology clinic with a pruritic eruption of 3 years' duration. On clinical examination, the patient had well-demarcated, pink, atrophic plaques and superficial erosions over the inframammary folds and mid-chest. She also had well-demarcated, hyperpigmented, hyperkeratotic scaly plaques over the abdomen, suprapubic region, elbows, knees, and back with sporadic small superficial blisters. A punch biopsy of the right abdomen was performed and revealed psoriasiform epidermal hyperplasia, focal parakeratosis, and acantholysis throughout the superficial spinous and granular layers...
