Zoledronic acid-associated symmetrical drug-related intertriginous and flexural exanthema (SDRIFE): report of baboon syndrome in a woman with recurrent metastatic breast cancer after receiving zoledronic acid.
CONCLUSIONS:   Non-contact allergenic drug-induced baboon syndrome has most commonly been associated with antibiotics such as beta-lactams and penicillins.  Zoledronic acid-associated baboon syndrome has not previously been observed in cancer patients.  Baboon syndrome (SDRIFE variant) was observed in a woman with recurrent metastatic breast cancer after her first exposure to zoledronic acid.  In summary, SDRIFE can occur in oncology patients receiving zoledronic acid and zoledronic acid should be added to the list of medications associated with the potential to cause non-contact allergenic drug-induced...

Subcorneal pustular dermatosis associated with Coccidioides immitis.
We present an adolescent male with primary pulmonary C.immitis infection manifesting with biopsy proven subcorneal pustular dermatosis. Serological studies revealed increasingly positive titers for coccidioidomycosis and symptoms resolved promptly following initiation of systemic antifungal therapy. Our unique case presentation illustrates subcorneal pustular dermatosis as a reactive eruption owing to primary pulmonary coccidioidomycosis. An association between the two conditions warrants further investigation. PMID: 26437157 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Dermatol Online J)

Verruciform Genital-Associated (Vegas) Xanthoma: report of a patient with verruciform xanthoma of the scrotum and literature review.
CONCLUSION:   Verruciform xanthoma is a benign tumor commonly located within the oral cavity and characterized by the development of a small verrucous, papillomatous, polypoid, or sessile growth. Extraoral sites of verruciform xanthoma often include the penis, scrotum, or vulva; we introduce the term 'Vegas' (Verruciform Genital-Associated) xanthoma for these lesions. The lesions are often mistaken for viral warts or malignancies.  Although the mechanism of pathogenesis is unknown, verruciform xanthoma may have a multifactorial etiology involving inflammation, local immunosuppression, and/or metabolic dysfunction...

Vesicular erythema migrans: an atypical and easily misdiagnosed form of Lyme disease.
Abstract Erythema migrans is the initial sign in the majority of patients infected with Borrelia, the genus of spirochetes that causes Lyme disease. Early identification and treatment decrease the risk of progression to later stages of disease. Although a "bull's eye" appearance owing to lesional clearing is considered classic for erythema migrans, this feature is surprisingly often lacking among patients in the United States. Furthermore, cutaneous Lyme disease can exhibit a wide range of morphologic variability in a minority of patients. Herein, we describe the case of a patient with Lyme disease in wh...

A case report of primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphoma treated with intralesional steroids.
CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: This case reminds practitioners that intralesional corticosteroids can be effectively and safely used to treat localized PCMZL. Intralesional steroids are less invasive, cheaper, and easier to administer than the majority of other recommended therapies for PCMZL. Thus, although they are often overlooked, intralesional corticosteroids should be more often considered when developing a treatment plan for localized PCMZL.

Atypical propylthiouracil-induced ANCA-positive vasculitis: report of a case with unusual clinical and histopathologic findings.
We present an interesting case in which cytopenia and cutaneous vasculopathy occurred concomitantly in a critically ill patient.  The patient was initially treated for suspected infection until dermatologic and rheumatologic workup revealed ANCA-positivity and vasculopathy on histopathology, most consistent with an atypical presentation of ANCA-positive vasculitis.  Upon initiation of immunosuppressive therapy, the patient's condition rapidly improved emphasizing the importance of early recognition of this condition.

Nicolau syndrome following intramuscular injection of oxytocin in pregnant women: report of two cases.
Abstract Nicolau syndrome, also known as embolia cutis medicamentosa, is a well known but very rare complication occuring after intramuscular drug injections and presenting with local intense pain. Immediately after injection the skin blanches and within minutes to hours an erythematous macule develops, which evolves into a livedoid violaceous patch with dendrites. This condition is initially hemorrhagic, then it ulcerates, and eventually heals with an atrophic scar. Many different drugs have been reported to cause Nicolau syndrome . To date there have been no reports of Nicolau syndrome caused by intramuscular ox...

Two sisters with Reed's syndrome: treatment with pregabalin.
Abstract Cutaneous leiomyomas, which originate in the arrector pili muscles of the skin are rarely seen benign cutaneous tumors. Sometimes familial cutaneous and uterine leiomyomatosis can occur together, an autosomal dominant genetic condition called Reed syndrome or familial leiomyomatosis cutis et uteri. This disorder can be accompanied by malignancies, particularly by renal carcinoma. In this paper, two sisters with Reed syndrome are presented in view of the rarity of the disorder and good response to pregabalin therapy.

Additional evidence that rosacea pathogenesis may involve demodex: new information from the topical efficacy of ivermectin and praziquantel.
Abstract Additional evidence that Demodex folliculorum may contribute to the pathogenesis of papulopustular rosacea are new studies of two topical antiparasitic agents. Ivermectin and praziquantel have recently been shown to be effective in decreasing the severity of papulopustular rosacea. These two agents significantly differ in molecular structure, but yield similar antiparasitic mechanisms of action. Higher numbers of Demodex mites are found in the skin of patients with rosacea than in people with normal skin. If Demodex play a role in pathogenesis, then hypersensitivity to the mites, their flora, or their pro...

CONCLUSION: Smoker's mustache refers to tobacco-associated discoloration of the hair of the upper lip of men. It is an asymptomatic condition that usually presents as an incidental finding.

Abstract Pseudo-Kaposi sarcoma is a benign reactive vascular proliferative disorder, which can be seen at any age. It occurs when the chronic venous pressure changes result in vascular proliferation in the upper and mid dermis. This disease is divided into two subtypes: the most frequent subtype is the Mali type and seen in early ages. The Mali type is seen in chronic venous insufficiency and in those patients with arteriovenous shunts. The rare subtype is the Stewart-Bluefarb type. This disease must be distinguished from Kaposi sarcoma because of their clinical resemblance. Herein, we present a patient with pseud...
