Introduction Alopecia areata (AA) is a high-prevalence immuno-mediated hair loss disorder. Extra follicular affections, including nail and ocular abnormalities, are classically related to a worse prognosis of the disease, and previous studies have suggested that the presence of a persistent nuchal nevus flammeus (NNF) also indicates a greater sever...

Cutaneous manifestations of dermatomyositis (DM) are heterogeneous and include macular erythema, papules, plaques, nodules, and skin ulceration.¹ Cutaneous ulcers have been reported in 3% to 19% of patients with DM,² and these can be extremely painful and disabling and present a risk of secondary infection. They are mainly located at the digital pu...

We read with great interest the paper by Navarrete-Dechent et al recently published on the Journal of European Academy of Dermatology¹, in which the authors detail the dermoscopic findings of trichobacteriosis and highlight the importance of dermoscopy in these cases. We present the case of a 44-year-old man, who emanated an unpleasant axilary odor...

Introduction Polymorphic light eruption (PLE) is a common idiopathic photodermatosis that typically presents with pruritic papular or papulovesicular lesions on sun-exposed skin between spring and autumn. In many subjects PLE is mild, and can usually be prevented by the use of broad-spectrum topical sunscreens and a gradual increase in sunlight exp...

International guidelines are available detailing treatment options for the different stages but without recommending treatments in any particular order due to lack of com...

Demodex mites are commensal organisms rarely found in healthy children. Human demodicosis can be classified as a primary or a secondary form. The secondary form in children usually affects severely immunodepressed children. To our knowledge, this is the first report of human demodicosis associated with Langerhans cell histiocytosis.

Congenital erythropoietic porphyria (CEP) is a rare, autosomal recessive disease caused by a deficiency of uroporphyrinogen III synthase (UROS), due to mutations in the UROS gene in chromosome 10. On occasion, patients show a mild late-onset disease, without germline UROS mutations, associated with hematologic malignancies. We report a 65-year-old...
Article
Rosso et al recently enlarged to ten the list of patients diagnosed with yellow urticaria (YU). These cases of YU remind clinicians that the skin, besides forming a biological barrier to protect internal organs and systems from the external environment, frequently reflects underlying internal diseases. YU has been described secondary to infective h...

Sporadic porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) is strongly associated with HCV infection in our population (1,2,3,4.) . Therapeutic options for PCT include phlebotomies and low-dose 4-aminoquinolines, which show high rates of disease remission. However, some PCT patients may present frequent relapses attributable to resistance/intolerability/poor adherence...

It results from transient extravasation of plasma into the dermis that leads to dermal edema. By definition, individual lesions resolve without scarring in less than 24 hours. The diagnosis is base...
