A unique case of subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma presenting as an abscess following an arthropod bite
We present an exceptional case of SPTCL masquerading as a solitary abscess which developed following an antecedent arthropod bite. Unique histological features encountered include foci of neutrophilic aggregation and admixed eosinophils within the neoplastic lymphomatous subcuticular infiltrate. As SPTCL rarely presents as an abscess, the authors wish to highlight this diagnostic pitfall and suggest excluding SPTCL as a cause of pseudo-pyoderma in patients who are afebrile with a discordant inflammatory marker profile. In addition, this condition should be suspected in non-diabetic patients who experience a rapid clinical ...

Anti-laminin 332 mucous membrane pemphigoid in a young woman treated with rituximab
We describe a 32-year-old woman who was diagnosed with anti-laminin 332 mucous membrane pemphigoid through indirect immunofluorescence for laminin 332 following nonspecific histologic and direct immunofluorescence findings. At 16 weeks following completion of her first cycle of with rituximab 375mg/m2 weekly for four weeks, her mucosal erosions had resolved. Although not widely available, this case highlights the utility of anti-laminin 332 immunofluorescence for diagnostic confirmation of this entity and the efficacy of rituximab in obtaining disease control.

"Knife-cut" intertriginous ulcers related to herpes simplex virus in three patients
Linear intertriginous erosions and ulcerations related to herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection have been reported in patients with underlying immunosuppression. This rare presentation of HSV seems to occur predominantly in patients undergoing treatment of hematologic malignancies and rheumatologic conditions. Herein, we report three cases of linear "knife-cut" ulcerations in patients who were not undergoing active pharmacologic immunosuppressive therapy and lacked coexisting malignancy or autoimmune disease. Close examination of the skin folds for HSV infection is warranted to rule out disseminated infection as early inter...

Modified keystone flap used to repair nose defect after Mohs micrographic surgery
We present a case where a modified keystone flap technique was used to close a large defect after Mohs micrographic surgery in a patient with a basal cell carcinoma on the nose. An excellent functional and aesthetic result was obtained with no complications during or after the procedure. We offer a novel indication for this technique for surgical defects in this area.

Localized myxedema histologically mimicking spindle cell lipoma
In this report, a 55-year-old woman with Graves disease and exophthalmos had a recurrent nodule on the foot. Her initial biopsy and excision specimens were believed to be consistent with spindle cell lipoma, which aligned with her early tumor-like clinical morphology. Her tumor recurred after excision, which is not consistent with spindle cell lipoma. As her condition progressed, her clinical morphology became more consistent with localized myxedema and her biopsies were congruent, securing clinicopathologic correlation. With standard treatment for localized myxedema, she improved significantly. This case emphasizes how cl...
