dermatosis lips

Sophie A Greenberg, Bethanee J Schlosser, Ginat W Mirowski
Heath care providers should be comfortable with normal as well as pathologic findings in the lips, because the lips are highly visible and may display clinical manifestations of local, as well as systemic inflammatory, allergic, irritant, and neoplastic alterations. Fortunately, the lips are easily accessible. The evaluation should include a careful history and physical examination, including visual inspection, as well as palpation of the lips and an examination of associated cervical, submandibular, and submental nodes...

Atopic dermatitis is a complex, systemic inflammatory disorder associated with a variety of clinical features. The original criteria of Hanifin and Rajka include major criteria and a list of about two dozen minor criteria however, even the minor criteria do not include some features of atopic dermatitis noted less commonly but still seen with some frequency. This contribution first reviews the common clinical appearance of atopic dermatitis in infancy, childhood, and adulthood, as well as the less typical appearances, including lichenoid atopic dermatitis; juvenile plantar dermatosis; nummular-type atopic dermatitis; follicular atopic dermatitis; alopecia of atopic dermatitis; eczema coxsackium; and psoriasiform, perineal, and lip licker's dermatitis...

A 42-year-old woman with ulcerative colitis previously well controlled on mesalazine presented with blistering, crusts and severe itching on her upper body and legs together with painful erosions on her conjunctivae and oral mucous membranes in addition to active bowel symptoms for two weeks. Clinical examination revealed multiple lesions consisting of vesiculopustules with circinate distribution and central crusts in sunflower-like configuration on her flanks and legs, a typical characteristic of intraepidermal neutrophilic dermatosis (IEN)-type of IgA pemphigus (Figure 1A and 1C) [1]...

Mucosal plasmacytoses constitute a group of idiopathic inflammatory disorders, characterized by a dense infiltrate of plasma cells at the mucocutaneous junction without any recognizable dermatosis or neoplasm. We report an unusual clinical presentation of mucosal plasmacytosis presenting with hemorrhagic crusting of the lips, mimicking erythema multiforme.

Laugier-Hunziker syndrome (LHS) is a rare acquired disorder characterized by macu-lar pigmentation of the lips and oral mucosa, with frequent longitudinal melanonychia. Involvement of other areas, such as the genitalia and fingers, has rarely been described. LHS is a benign condition with no known systemic manifestations. We report the case of a woman who developed melanotic macules on her fingers and elbow 16 years after the onset of pigmentation of her lips. This unusual feature of LHS in our patient was associated with irritant contact dermatitis and viral warts...

Perioral dermatitis is a common and often chronic dermatosis. In its classic form, it primarily affects women aged 15 to 45 years, but there are also variants including lupus-like and granulomatous perioral dermatitis, where granulomatous form is more common in childhood and affects mostly prepubescent boys. The etiopathogenesis of the disease remains unclear, but there is a frequent finding of prolonged use of topical products, especially corticosteroids, in the treatment of rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis, preceding the clinical manifestation of perioral dermatitis...

INTRODUCTION: Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a specific skin reaction and the only exclusively medicinal dermatosis. Among the drugs usually responsible are the antituberculous antibiotics including rifampicin and, less often, isoniazid and pyrazinamide. FDE after taking ethambutol is rarely described. CASE REPORT: A 32-year old HIV negative patient presented a FDE localized to the internal surface of the lips and the interdigital folds during the 4th month of antituberculous treatment comprising rifampicin, isoniazid and ethambutol...

The sensitive transitional skin of the lips is a favored site for primary skin diseases, especially eczematous dermatitis. An inflammatory condition of the lips, eg chapped lips (cheilitis sicca) in atopic eczema, may be the only manifestation of a skin disease or appear as part of a generalized dermatosis. Inflammatory changes to the lips also occur in the context of systemic disorders such as lupus erythematosus or in allergic diseases. This article presents the most frequent and the most important forms of inflammatory cheilitis...

A seven-year-old, ovariohysterectomised female dwarf lop rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) was referred with severe swelling and erythema of the mucocutaneous junctions of the lips, nares and vulva. Bilateral, severe periocular dermatitis was also present. Heavy pure growths of a member of the Staphylococcus intermedius group were cultured from nasal and aural swabs and skin biopsies. Other possible differential diagnoses were eliminated by standard tests. The clinical features and histopathological characteristics of the biopsies were most consistent with mucocutaneous pyoderma, a dermatosis previously reported in dogs but not in rabbits...

Neutrophilic dermatosis of the hands is a localized variant of Sweet syndrome (SS). It was first reported in 1995, and is an uncommon condition, with < 100 cases reported to date. The female preponderance, morphological and histological features, and response to treatment are similar to SS, but it differs in its distribution on the body. There may also be a lack of systemic features and inconsistent laboratory findings. Significantly, about half of all cases are associated with haematological problems, i...

BACKGROUND: Acanthosis nigricans (AN) is a dermatosis characterized by thickened, hyperpigmented plaques, typically on the intertriginous surfaces and neck. Common in some populations, its prevalence depends on race. Clinicians should recognize AN; it heralds disorders ranging from endocrinologic disturbances to malignancy. In this review, we discuss the pathogenesis of AN and its clinical implications and management. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We selected 30 patients for the study...

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an immune-mediated subepidermal vesiculobullous eruption, whose true incidence is unknown, but it is considered extremely rare in children, with a usually indolent course and rare relapses. Diagnosis is often belated, because of the invasive assessment with biopsy for typical immune-pathologic findings to differentiate it from Dermatitis Herpetiformis and Linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD), more common in children. A 4-year-old girl presented with one year history of erythematous-edematous and erythematous-bullous eruptions on the genitalia, periocular regions, dorsal and palmo-plantar surfaces...

Iatrogenic skin injuries in hospitalized patients range from drug-related complications to those related to procedures. Common drug complications include drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS), linear immunoglobulin (Ig) A bullous dermatosis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis, and acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis. Contact dermatitis can result from surgical preparations of chlorhexidine and povidone-iodine, medical adhesives, topical postsurgical ointments, most commonly neomycin and bacitracin, and internal prostheses, including coronary stents, pacemakers, and metal joints...

BACKGROUND: Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is a pathology with autosomal dominant inheritance characterized by the presence of hamartomatous polyposis and mucocutaneous pigmentation. We present a case report from the Hospital General of Mexico. CLINICAL CASE: We present the case of a 28-year-old male. During physical examination we noted hyperpigmented dermatosis of the oral mucosa and lips. The same condition was seen in both palms. The condition evolved with intolerance to oral feeding and progressive obstructive jaundice...

A 7-year-old female Cocker spaniel-cross was referred with an 8-month history of mucocutaneous erosive dermatitis. On physical examination, skin lesions affected the eyelids and periocular area, lips and vulva. Lesions were symmetrical with small diffuse superficial ulcers, haemorrhagic crusts, adherent purulent exudation in haired skin, and alopecia with hyperpigmentation and scarring. Histopathologic evaluation showed multiple, non-intact dermoepidermal junction vesicles and ulceration associated with a dermal lichenoid infiltrate...

Granulomatous cheilitis is a rare granulomatous inflammation of the lips of unknown origin; mainly young adults are affected. So far, there is no generally effectual treatment available for this disfiguring dermatosis. We show the efficacy of a treatment with fumaric acid esters reporting the case of a 14-year-old girl with granulomatous cheilitis resistant to previous therapy. Our successful therapy consisted of fumaric acid esters according to the therapeutic schedule for psoriasis and showed a good tolerance subjectively and objectively...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a life-threatening dermatosis characterized by epidermal sloughing and stomatitis. We report the case of a 7-year-old boy in whom laser phototherapy (LPT) was highly effective in reversing the effects of an initial episode of SJS that had apparently developed in association with treatment with phenobarbital for a seizure disorder. The patient was first seen in the intensive care unit (ICU) of our institution with fever, cutaneous lesions on his extremities, trunk, face, and neck; mucosal involvement of his genitalia and eyes (conjunctivitis); ulcerative intraoral lesions; and swollen, crusted, and bleeding lips...

Neutrophilic dermatosis of the dorsal hands (NDDH) is a localized, pustular variant of acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis (Sweet syndrome). The lesions of NDDH clinically resemble those of Sweet syndrome (SS), but they differ from classic SS according to their locations (NDDH is predominantly restricted to the dorsal hands) and the smaller number of accompanying systemic symptoms. The histology of the NDDH lesion shows a dense dermal neutrophilic infiltration. The lesions rapidly resolve after systemic corticosteroid and/or dapsone therapy...

Eczema herpeticum is the dissemination of herpes simplex virus in the setting of a preexisting skin disease. Hailey-Hailey disease [familial benign chronic pemphigus] is a blistering dermatosis that is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait and it usually presents itself around the third or fourth decades. Coexistence of eczema herpeticum and Hailey-Hailey disease is an infrequent occurrence. Four such cases have been reported in the English and German medical literature. We report here on an unusual case of eczema herpeticum that coexisted with Hailey-Hailey disease in a 47 years old man and we review the relevant literatures...

Laminin-332 (laminin-5) is a basement membrane heterotrimeric protein composed of alpha-3, beta-3 and gamma-2 laminin chains. Laminin-332 polypeptides are targeted by auto-antibodies in human patients with mucous membrane (cicatricial) pemphigoid or, more rarely, subepidermal vesicular diseases that resemble epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA) or bullous pemphigoid (BP). The objectives of this report were to characterize the clinical, histopathological and immunological characteristics of nine dogs with auto-antibodies targeting laminin-332...
