[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Syringomas localized in the genital areas are unusual. There are only three cases reported describing syringomas on the penis. Owing to this atypical localization it is necessary to consider a differential diagnosis involving other papular lesions more frequent found on the penile skin.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We present the case of a 64 year-old-male fur trader from Lerida (Spain), who consulted us because of a 2-week history of night fever and the presence of non-pruritic purpuric lesions on the distal third of the lower limbs. Laboratory findings demonstrated positive serology for brucellosis and cutaneous biopsy showed leukocytoclastic vasculitis. The pathogenesis of the cutaneous process is discussed. We also suggest that brucellosis should be included among the infections taken into account in patients suffering from leukocytoclastic vasculitis coming from brucella-endemic areas.
