Paget disease of the nipple is a rare presentation of breast cancer. It is sometimes mistaken for a benign skin condition of the nipple and surrounding areola, which can significantly delay the diagnosis and treatment. In over 90% of cases there is an underlying carcinoma, either ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) or invasive breast cancer. We present a rare case of Paget disease of the nipple without the typical characteristics, detected by simple nipple scraping technique. A 62-year-old woman pre...

Eosinophilic dermatosis of hematologic malignancy (EDHM) is a dermatosis characterized by tissue eosinophilia that has been previously reported as insect bite-like reaction. It is a rare condition with a wide variety of clinical presentations ranging from papules, nodules, or blisters that simulate arthropod bites, to the formation of plaques of differing sizes. We report a case of eosinophilic dermatosis of hematologic malignancy in a patient with a hematoproliferative disorder.

Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a noninvasive real-time imaging technique that has been widely used for the diagnosis of skin cancer. More recently, it has been reported as a useful tool for the diagnosis and management of several inflammatory and infectious skin disorders. This article provides an overview of the current available applications of RCM use in cutaneous infections and infestations. PubMed was used to search the following terms in various combinations: reflectance confocal...
We report a patient with Sweet syndrome involving the pulmonary system in the context of myelodysplastic syndrome. Although Sweet syndrome may involve a variety of organ systems, the pulmonary system is rarely affected and can result in poor clinical outcomes, including acute respiratory distress syndrome. Both cutaneous and pulmonary symptoms respond well to systemic corticosteroid therapy and early diagnosis and treatment can improve the prognosis. Our case highlights the importance of collabo...

Background: New treatment options for warts include intralesional wart injection with agents such as vitamin D, measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine antigen, Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) antigen, and candida antigen but there have been limited studies to compare their efficacies. Background: New treatment options for warts include intralesional wart injection with agents such as vitamin D, measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine antigen, Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) antigen, and candi...

Erythema nodosum (EN) is a form of septal panniculitis, which is believed to represent a delayed hypersensitivity reaction activated by infectious agents, drugs, granulomatous and autoimmune diseases, pregnancy, and malignancies. There are only four reported cases of EN during oral isotretinoin therapy to our knowledge, all of them occurring in patients with severe acne. Since acne itself can trigger EN, the question as to whether there is indeed a causative relationship between isotretinoin and...
Follicular occlusion triad is a symptom complex of three conditions with a similar pathophysiology including hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), dissecting cellulitis of the scalp, and acne conglobata. Although the exact pathogenesis of the triad is unknown, it appears to be related to follicular occlusion in areas with apocrine glands. Wolf isotopic response refers to the occurrence of a new dermatosis at the site of another, unrelated, previously healed dermatosis. We present a 26-year-old man with...

Plasmablastic lymphoma (PBL) is a rare and aggressive malignancy associated with immunosuppression and the oncogenic effects of the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). We present an HIV-positive man with PBL that presented as ulcers and violaceous exophytic nodules on the legs. The clinical features, histologic appearance, and differential diagnosis of this malignancy are briefly reviewed.
Porokeratotic eccrine ostial and dermal duct nevus (PEODDN) is a rare dermatosis initially described as ‘comedo nevus’ and renamed ‘PEODDN’; it has also been referred to as linear eccrine nevus with comedones, porokeratotic eccrine ostial and hair follicle nevus, and porokeratotic adnexal ostial nevus. PEODDN is usually present at birth or develops early in life. Rarely, PEODDN can develop in adults. The treatment of this puzzling condition is not standardized. We report herein a new case of adu...
Disseminated herpes simplex virus (HSV) is mainly seen in immunocompromised individuals. Atypical lesions can be present in both primary infection and reactivation disease. Compared with the general population, inmunocompromised hosts are at greater risk of increased persistency and severity of clinical manifestations, including severe systemic involvement such as esophagitis, meningitis, and hepatitis. Herein, we report the case of a liver transplant recipient with atypical disseminated herpes ...
