We report the use of dermoscopy as a diagnostic aid in a case of tinea manuum. The dermoscopic clue turned out to be the presence of whitish scaling located mainly in the furrows. This aspect has never been seen in other keratodermas and therefore can be considered as a useful finding to assist in the recognition of tinea manuum.

If the day of the triffids were ever to come, then Heracleum mantegazzianum, would be the henchmen. The giant hogweed, also known as the cartwheel-flower, the giant cow parsnip, hogsbane, or giant cow parsley, is a nasty plant. It is called hogweed because the flowers smell of pigs. But, that is not the worst thing about it. You may have read in the news recently of the crippling effects it had on an unwitting Welsh gardener. His bare legs brushing against the plant developed nasty and deep blisters in the coming days and awful pain. He is apparently still unable to walk because of the damage done by the pla...

AbstractCutaneous adverse effects (CAEs), such as eczema, psoriasis, and skin infections, are common in patients receiving tumour necrosis factor inhibitors (TNFIs; e.g. adalimumab, etanercept and infliximab). Once a CAE is diagnosed, patients should receive appropriate dermatological care, as this may avoid cessation of TNFI therapy. Topical corticosteroids are the mainstay of therapy for numerous skin lesions, while oral antibiotics are effective in the treatment of superinfections.

We present a case of a 74 years old male with cutaneous cryptococcosis of the right forearm. Cryptococcus neoformans var. neoformans was cultivated from the skin and from the bloodstream. He was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome (focal segmental glomerulosclerosis) 21 months prior to admission, which was steroid-dependent. He was treated with prednisone and cyclosporine A. Concurrently with his renal disease he was also diagnosed as having disseminated severe tinea mannum, tinea corporis and tinea cruris; onychomycosis, skin eczema and psoriasis. After a prolonged course of anti-fungal therapy, his skin lesions as well as ...

Psoriasis (PSO), atopic dermatitis or eczema (ADE), pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid (BP), hidradenitis (HS) and dermatomyositis (DM) are chronic inflammatory skin disorders (CISD) associated with systemic immune activation and dysregulation, and possible autoimmune disease. We sought to determine whether these CISD are associated with increased risk of comorbid autoimmune disease. Data from the 20022012 National Inpatient Sample were analyzed, including a representative 20% sample of all US hospitalizations (n=72,108,077 adults).
