Two siblings with generalized pustular psoriasis were admitted to the hospital. Case 1: A 7-year-old girl presented with recurrent episodes of multiple pinhead-sized pustules all over her body since the age of 3. The current episode began a week prior to the onset of the lesions. On cutaneous examination, she had generalized erythema topped with tiny pustules, scales, and crusting (Figure 1A). A Gram stain performed from the pustule and cultures taken from the pus and blood were sterile. Histopathology of the pustule was suggestive of pustular psoriasis (Figure 2)...

OBJECTIVES: (1) To determine the prevalence of interstitial lung disease (ILD) and isolated low diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCO) in a large cohort of outpatients with dermatomyositis. (2) To compare the pulmonary abnormalities of patients with classic dermatomyositis and those with skin-predominant dermatomyositis. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: University hospital outpatient dermatology referral center. Patients Medical records of 91 outpatients with adult-onset dermatomyositis seen between May 26, 2006, and May 25, 2009, were reviewed...

PURPOSE: In 1960 Gorlin and Goltz defined the nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS, Gorlin-Goltz Syndrome) as a syndrome comprising multiple basal cell carcinoma, odontogenic keratocysts, and skeletal anomalies. NBCCS is an autosomal dominantly inherited disease with an estimated prevalence of 1:150,000 and diagnosis of this syndrome is often an accidental finding of radiological investigations. The purpose of this study was to report the varied radiological and dermatological manifestations of our patients affected with NBCCS and to present this rare syndrome as a differential diagnosis of skeletal anomalies...

John Hinchman Stokes studied syphilis intensely, and George Miller MacKee studied and wrote texts on x-ray and radium therapy for skin diseases. This review will encapsulate their lives and note the effect that the demise of their fields of interest had on them.

Patients of hematological malignancies with neutropenia form one of the most susceptible host groups for microbial infection. In this study, we concentrated on the pulmonary and cutaneous manifestations of invasive fungal infections in leukemic children, aiming to make early diagnosis and intervention. Clinical, laboratory, radiological, and histopathological findings concerning 13 leukemic children who had invasive fungal infection between 1997 and 2002 were retrospectively reviewed. Seventy-seven percent (10/13) of diagnoses were made by fungal cultures and/or by histopathological evidence from various specimens, four from cutaneous lesions and six from pulmonary tissues...

A 61-year old female patient with cutaneous sarcoidosis was treated with fumaric acid esters (Fumaderm). After 12 months of therapy, lesions were markedly improved and treatment was discontinued. 18 months later, the cutaneous lesions recurred, angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) serum levels were increased and a chest X-ray demonstrated pulmonary involvement. Therapy with fumaric acid esters was again started. The skin showed improvement after 2 months and completely cleared within 17 months, within 4 months ACE levels normalized, and within 10 months radiologic changes markedly resolved...

In cases with an "atypical" radiologic pattern-osteolytic as well as osteosclerotic or mixed - the radiologist should pay attention to the patient's skin. There he will often find specific changes that are the key to a correct interpretation of the radiologic abnormalities. In such cases the synopsis is of more value in differential diagnosis than more or less unspecific histologic findings. Entities with a non-arbitrary conjunction of changes of the skin and bones we call SKIBO diseases. Some of them have a high potential for mimicking malignant bone lesions, often with the consequence of unnecessary biopsies...

AIM: Because of doubts in early clinical assessment and full documentation of all various cases of psoriatic arthritis outside of rheumatologic centres a clinical study in a dermatologic department of a rehabilitation clinic was performed. METHODS: 148 patients between 1996 and 1999 were interviewed and examined clinically. 27 (18.2%) of them had osseous joint processes proved by X-ray (severe cases). 90 (60.8%) patients had no radiologic changes but a positive history of joint pain (mild cases)...

OBJECTIVE: The SAPHO (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, osteitis) syndrome describes an association between musculoskeletal disorders, in particular hyperostosis involving the bones and joints of the anterior chest wall, and various dermatologic conditions. It has been reported in Europe and Japan, but no Australian series have been published. We describe the clinical, laboratory, and radiographic features of a group of patients with the SAPHO syndrome and compare this with the literature...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the long-term outcome of the synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome. METHODS: All patients with the SAPHO syndrome seen at our unit between 1974 and 1997 were identified. Follow-up was prospective from 1992 to 1997. Data before 1992 were analyzed retrospectively. Clinical symptoms, treatments and biological data, including erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein, were recorded at least yearly. When available, radiological data, HLA B27 status, and findings from bone or skin biopsy specimens were recorded...

Chronic lymphoplasmacellular osteomyelitis may occur in children, adolescents and adults, but has not been found in newborns or babies either in our series or in the literature. Symptoms suggesting an acute disease like fever are uncommon, but a primary chronic course with symptomatic and asymptomatic periods is typical. Pain and swelling are the main symptoms; painless masses are rare. In children and adolescents the clavicle and metaphyseal regions of long bones are typical sites of chronic abacterial osteomyelitis...

BACKGROUND: There is no agreement about surveillance after resection of a stage I melanoma. OBJECTIVE: We assessed the cost-effectiveness of this surveillance. METHODS: Out of 912 patients with stage I (and Clark's level > or = II) melanoma examined from 1981 to 1991, only 528 were regularly followed in our department. RESULTS: 115 out of 528 relapsed; 33% were detected by the patient himself, 16% by the referring physician and 39% were detected in our department...

The authors report a case of Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome in a 66-year old woman who had been admitted for polymyalgia rheumatica. Dermatological examination showed innumerable small ivory papullae bilaterally and symmetrically distributed over the back, the shoulders, the flexor aspect of the elbows, the wrists and the thighs. Biopsy of a papulla displayed hypertrophy of the elastic tissue condensed in the deep dermis. Electron microscopy showed dense collagen bundles together with an absence of microfibillae and of anchoring fibres in the superficial dermis...
