Background: Papular urticaria is a chronic inflammatory disease caused by exposure to arthropod bites. The disease has been reported in children attending medical centers, but the causes as the risk factors associated with the disease have not been established. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of papular urticaria caused by flea bite and identify the risk factors in children between 1 to 6 years of age in Bogotá D.C, between March 2009 and June 2011. Methods: A cross-sectional, two-stage, clustered study using random probability sampling and stratified with proportional allocation was carried out in children (1-6 years of age) in educational institutions in Bogotá D...

Papular urticaria is a chronic allergic reaction induced by insect bites, which is common in the tropics. The objective of this review was to deepen on epidemiological and immunological aspects of this disease, focused on data published in Latin American countries.We conducted a non-systematic review of the literature through electronic search on the epidemiology of papular urticaria, the entomological characteristics of the causative agents and associated immunological mechanisms.Several reports from medical centers suggest that papular urticaria is common in Latin America...

A medical doctor occasionally experienced itching papular exanthema during work hours. Careful history taking and a diary of symptoms demonstrated an association between the urticaria and stressful work situations. Urticaria can have many triggers, and stress is among the well-known triggers. The usual treatment of urticaria consists of avoiding triggers and, if necessary, antihistamines. Whereas it might be difficult to follow these recommendations in the case of work-related urticaria, the disorder may be perceived as a reminder of work situations which are going awry...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether cotrimoxazole prophylaxis prevents common skin conditions in HIV-infected children. DESIGN: Open-label randomized controlled trial of continuing versus stopping daily cotrimoxazole (post-hoc analysis). SETTING: Three sites in Uganda and one in Zimbabwe. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 758 children aged more than 3 years receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART) for more than 96 weeks in the ARROW trial were randomized to stop (n = 382) or continue (n = 376) cotrimoxazole after median (interquartile range) 2...

Infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) can result in hepatic diseases which may include an asymptomatic non-replicative carrier state, immunotolerant phase characterized by high DNA levels without significant hepatic injury, immune-reactive phase characterized by occurrence of chronic hepatitis and fibrosis in the liver, or complications like cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma. Extrahepatic manifestations may also accompany HBV infection. These may include serum sickness syndrome, polyarthralgia, polyarthritis, dermatologic manifestations like pitted keratolysis, urticaria, purpura, oral lichen planus or Gianotti-Crosti syndrome-a childhood papular eruption...

BACKGROUND: The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are a group of islands to the east of the Indian mainland. The Nicobar district in its southern part includes the Nancowry group. Very little is known about the dermatoses in this remote region and hence, this study was carried out at a community medical camp held in Kamorta on November 12, 2014. AIMS: To study the pattern of dermatoses in Nicobarese attending a community medical camp at Nancowry. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: All Nicobarese, predominantly mongoloid, attending a multi-specialty community medical camp at Kamorta on November 12, 2014, were initially seen by a general practitioner...

An epithelial sheath neuroma (ESN) is a rare benign process of unknown pathogenesis, which is characterized histologically by multiple enlarged peripheral nerve fibers ensheathed by mature squamous epithelium. The histologic features can elicit concern for carcinomatous perineural invasion. The process is limited to the superficial dermis and is surrounded by a loose myxoid stroma, lymphocytic infiltrate and sometimes prominent infundibular cysts. The etiology of this peculiar entity has been debated and theories include a benign neoplasm, a hamartoma or an unusual reactive hyperplasia...

The El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is a complex climate phenomenon occurring in the Pacific Ocean at intervals of 2-7 years. The term refers to fluctuations in ocean temperatures in the tropical eastern Pacific Ocean (El Niño [the warm phase of ENSO] and La Niña [the cool phase of ENSO]) and in atmospheric pressure across the Pacific basin (Southern Oscillation). This weather pattern is attributed with causing climate change in certain parts of the world and is associated with disease outbreaks. The question of how ENSO affects skin and skin-related disease is relatively unanswered...

A 2-year-old boy showed itchy papules and wheals, which were diagnosed as papular urticaria. Papular urticaria are a hypersensitivity reaction after insect bites. The condition can relapse even without the presence of insects or new bites. Topical steroids or antihistamines diminish the symptoms in some cases.

BACKGROUND: There is little information on urticaria occurring in children, especially in limited resource countries. OBJECTIVE: To determine the demographic and clinical features of urticaria in children living in a developing country. PATIENTS AND METHOD: A prospective study was done in children from two allergy outpatient clinics were prospectively studied. Clinical data was obtained from the medical history and physical examination. Laboratory evaluations and immediate-type skin tests with food and aeroallergen extracts were done in selected cases...

OBJECTIVES: Information on prevalences of pediatric dermatoses in Egypt is scanty. This study aimed to supplement existing data. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted in Damietta, Egypt between October 2011 and March 2012. It involved 6162 pupils randomly selected from 30 primary schools. The sample was equally divided (3081 pupils/15 schools) between urban and rural areas. Each participant was interviewed for age, gender, residence and complaint. Hygiene status was evaluated and a clinical examination was carried out for skin diseases...

Urticaria is a common inflammatory skin disease. It is clinically defined as the occurrence of transient papular skin and/or mucosal lesions or subcutaneous lesions called angioedema. Chronic urticaria is defined as a clinical course over more than 6weeks. Different clinical forms of urticaria can coexist in the same patient. Urticaria results of mast cell activation. The diagnosis of urticaria is based on clinical examination. An allergic etiology for acute urticaria, although rare, is always to find and remove...

Mastocytosis is a rare disease characterized by proliferation and accumulation of mast cells in various organs. The maculopapular cutaneous mastocytosis is divided into three subtypes: papular/plaque variant, urticaria pigmentosa and eruptive macular telangiectasia perstans. Dermoscopic may help to better characterize the different forms of cutaneous mastocytosis. We report a 55 year-old female with urticaria pigmentosa and its dermoscopy.
