    ABSTRACT: A 52-year-old man presented for evaluation of patchy alopecia of the scalp, axilla, and groin and of follicular spiny papules. Histopathologic examination showed a dense, follicular, lymphocytic infiltrate and interfollicular interface changes. Lassueur-Graham-Little-Piccardi syndrome is characterized by the triad of scarring, patchy alopecia of the scalp, non-cicatricial alopecia of the axillae and pubis, and a keratotic, follicular eruption. There may be an etiologic relationship with lichen planus. Treatment is difficult, although isolated reports have demonstrated success with cyclosporin and thalidomide.

    ABSTRACT: A 20-year-old man presented with multiple, asymptomatic, follicular papules that were distributed over his abdomen. Microscopic examination showed classic features of a vellus hair cyst. The term eruptive vellus hair cysts refers to a benign condition, which may be inherited or acquired. Apart from occasional pruritus, cosmetic disability is the chief concern of most patients. An estimated 25 percent of lesions remit spontaneously; however, treatment of persistent lesions is often challenging with disappointing results.

    ABSTRACT: A 53-year-old woman presented for evaluation and treatment of discrete, violaceous, annular plaques on the forehead and cheeks. The biopsy specimen and the clinical presentation were consistent with lichen planus actinicus. Lichen planus actinicus is a photosensitive variant of lichen planus that can present with annular, melasma-like, dyschromic, or violaceous plaques in sun-exposed areas. The clinical manifestations of lichen planus actinicus and treatments are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: A 29-year-old woman presented with 8 months of multiple vesicles, erosions, and milia on the dorsa of her hands and feet. Histopathologic examination demonstrated a subepidermal blister, with a paucity of eosinophils and a lack of blood vessel wall thickening or caterpillar bodies. A direct immunofluorescence test showed a linear deposit of IgG at the dermo-epidermal junction. These findings were consistent with a diagnosis of epidermolysis bullosa acquisita. This case is a classic example of this rare blistering disease, in which patients produce autoantibodies to collagen VII, which is the major component of the anchoring fibrils.
