Papular eczema

Radhakrishnan Subramaniyan
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...

Coxsackievirus A6 (CV-A6) is an emerging pathogen that has in recent years been associated with atypical hand, foot and mouth disease. This manifests as a generalized papular or vesicular eruption, which may be associated with fever and systemic disturbance. We report a series of six children presenting to a single centre in the UK with disseminated CV-A6 infection on a background of atopic dermatitis (AD). Our patients exhibited a widespread papular or vesicular eruption in association with exacerbation of AD...

A previously well infant aged 9 months presented with an acute, self-limiting illness characterised by high fever and a papular eruption that started on the face. Although fever subsided within 3 days, the rash worsened and extended over the whole body, with some papules evolving into vesiculobullous lesions. The infant had been exposed to children with a similar illness 1 week before onset. PCR of vesicular swabs and stool samples taken on day 6 of illness showed Coxsackie virus A6. The illness resolved within 10 days of onset, although onychomadesis was seen on both big toes at follow-up 5 weeks later...

This report describes an unusual case of bilaterally symmetrically occurring hyperpigmented itchy popular lesions on both forearms of a 50-year-old woman. The woman had antecedent hyperkeratotic eczema of the feet and she had a similar eruption in the past which had cleared with topical steroid application. Biopsy of the lesion showed syringomas. We present this case to highlight an unusual case of bilaterally symmetrical papular pruritic eruption against a background of hyperkeratotic eczema. Some syringomas are supposed to be a response to an inflammatory trigger and we wonder if in this case the eczema acted as an inflammatory trigger...

The common manifestations of atopic dermatitis (AD) appear sequentially with involvement of the cheeks in infancy, flexural extremities in childhood, and hands in adulthood. Although less common clinical manifestations are well described, they have not been the subject of epidemiologic studies to describe their prevalence in specific age groups. This observational, cross-sectional, comparative study included 131 children younger than 18 of both sexes with AD who attended the clinics of the Dermatology Department of the National Institute of Pediatrics in Mexico City...

Autoimmune progesterone dermatitis is a rare, cyclical eruption that occurs in the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and during pregnancy. Many manifestations have been reported including cyclical eczema, urticaria, erythema multiforme, stomatitis and even anaphylaxis. The condition spontaneously resolves after menopause. As histopathology is non-specific, the diagnosis rests on history with precipitation of the eruption by a progesterone challenge, usually by the intradermal, intramuscular or oral route...

BACKGROUND: Skin diseases are underestimated and overlooked by most clinicians despite being common in clinical practice. Many patients are hospitalized with co-existing dermatological conditions which may not be detected and managed by the attending physicians. The objective of this study was to determine the burden of co-existing and overlooked dermatological disorders among patients admitted to medical wards of Muhimbili National hospital in Dar es Salaam. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTINGS: A hospital-based descriptive cross-sectional study conducted at Muhimbili National hospital in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania...

BACKGROUND: Nickel-elicited systemic contact dermatitis is a rare event seen in previously skin sensitized patients. We report a case of systemic contact dermatitis due to nickel released into the bloodstream from a metal section of a catheter during infusion. CASE REPORT: A 39-year-old woman presented papular and vesicular flexural dermatitis and pompholyx 72h after cervical spine surgery. She received numerous treatments during the perioperative period. A challenge test with one of the suspected treatments, cefazolin, was performed by intravenous infusion over a six-hour period using the same Optiva) peripheral catheter (Johnson & Johnson, USA)...

Psoriasis is a common immune-mediated disease that affects approximately 2% of the world's population. Most patients require lifelong treatment and many of the current systemic therapies are complicated by significant toxicities or inconvenience when administered long-term. New biological psoriasis therapies have been developed, which are thought to act through targeted molecular pathways, so as to administer them continuously without causing any relevant toxicity. Nevertheless, acute and chronic dermatological adverse effects are frequently observed, but knowledge about them is limited and the potential pathogenic mechanisms have not yet been identified...

Efalizumab was authorized to be put on the market in France starting July 21, 2005. Its efficacy and tolerance profile in plaque psoriasis at a dose of 1 mg kg(-1) weekly in a subcutaneous injection have been studied in phase III trials. At the current moment, more than 3,500 patients have been included in clinical trials. Flu-like symptoms (fever, chills, headaches, nausea, vomiting, myalgia) are the most frequent adverse events. On the skin, a localized papular rash or the aggravation of the psoriasis in an edematous or even pustular form are the two most regularly observed complications...

New research indicates that polymorphic light eruption (PLE) is an autoimmune disease against an ultraviolet radiation-induced cutaneous antigen. PLE may even confer some protection against skin cancer later in life. This new information demands a reassessment of the precise nature and nomenclature of PLE. Benign summer light eruption (BSLE) (lucite estivale bénigne) is the name used in continental Europe, and particularly France, to describe a clinically short-lived, itchy, papular eruption particularly affecting young women after several hours of sunbathing at the beginning of summer or on sunny vacations...

To investigate the epidemiology of acute cutaneous adverse drug reactions, a cross-sectional study was designed with four visits, equally distributed over one year, to all clinical departments of a large university hospital in order to find patients with possible drug-induced exanthema of less than 2 weeks' duration. Patients were examined clinically and offered investigation for possible drug allergy, including blood tests, and skin tests when appropriate. Subsequent drug challenge tests were performed in selected cases...

Hydroxychloroquine (HXQ) sulphate is a synthetic antimalaria drug that is widely used in rheumatology due to its immunosuppressive properties. Delayed-type sensitization to this drug is rare. A 47-year-old woman diagnosed with HLA B27 ankylosing spondylitis was treated with HXQ for 22 days and had to discontinue the drug due to gastric intolerance. Five days later the patient developed erythema multiforme (EM) with an extensive and unusual distribution. Patch test with 10% HXQ in DMSO were positive at 48 hours...

BACKGROUND: The characteristics of polymorphous light eruption (PMLE) have been described in patients evaluated and diagnosed at specialized photodermatology centers. Our goal was to describe the characteristics of PMLE diagnosed in a general clinic setting. METHODS: We used electronic medical records to identify patients diagnosed with PMLE from 2000 to 2002 within a large group practice. We then collected additional information from medical records about patient demographics, lesion morphology, diagnostic testing, and therapies for the selected patients...

Cutaneous allergic reactions are relatively common in tropical countries, with some caused by the tropical environment and others by changes in the traditional living conditions combined with poverty. HIV infection is a major contributory factor. A large number of reactions are eczematous. Atopic dermatitis is on the increase together with contact allergic reactions. Available products are often of inferior quality and contain irritants and allergens that may be forbidden elsewhere in the world. The extensive and uncontrolled use of drugs and indigenous medications together with an increase in HIV prevalence leads to drug eruptions such as the Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis...

BACKGROUND: Urticarial dermatitis may represent a useful term for a subset of a reaction pattern designated most commonly as dermal hypersensitivity by pathologists. The term is not commonly used, and requires definition to determine whether it is clinically relevant. OBJECTIVES: To define urticarial dermatitis and distinguish it from other urticarial reaction patterns and to review the frequency with which dermatologists can recognize clinical settings that match the biopsy findings of urticarial dermatitis...
