Cryptococcosis is an opportunistic infection caused by a ubiquitous encapsulated yeast, Cryptococcus neoformans. The pulmonary infection is primary site and most frequently self-limited and may be asymptomatic. The most common recognized site of disseminated cryptococcosis is the central nervous system. The cutaneous cryptococcosis is rare and nonspecific. More recently, in ...

Lichen sclerosis et atrophicus is characterized by the development of well demarcated, depigmented macules with epidermal atrophy. Hemorrhage occurs occasionally; however, telangiectasia is seldom remarkable. We studied a case of lichen sclerosis et atrophicus with striking telangiectasia which involved a 62-year-old male who was suffering from this disorder on his ...

We report a case of a giant cystic cutaneous adnexal hamartoma which showed fibrofollicular units embedded in the stroma with aberrant fat tissue. There were many sebaceous lobules in the fibrofollicular units, and its histologic features were consistent with conventional folliculosebaceous cystic hamartoma. Given the unique clinical history and appearance, ...

Cutaneous vasculitis and vasculopathic processes continue to be difficult to define, diagnose, and treat. Historically, the complexity of these disorders has been compounded by imprecision in terminology and classification and the presence or absence of underlying systemic illness. Approaching the literature with consistent diagnostic constraints and accepted terminology can, it ...

Cutaneous leishmaniasis (LC) and lupus vulgaris (LV) are commonly encountered in the Mediterranean region of Turkey. Differential diagnosis is rather difficult and unreliable purely on clinical grounds; thus histopathological examination is required. Microscopical findings of both lesions may also present some similarities. 12 LC and 16 LV cases were analysed ...

An unusual pattern and type of lichen planus is described in a 57-year-old female in which the flexures were exclusively involved.

We report a case of sporotrichosis in a veterinarian who acquired the infection from a cat. Transmission was confirmed at the genetic level by demonstration that the two clinical isolates of Sporothrix schenckii had identical restriction-fragment-length profiles of whole-cell DNA. Review of the literature indicates that zoonotic transmission of sporotrichosis ...

We report a case of lichen planus coexisting with psoriasis in a black patient. As the lesions of lichen planus appeared similar in appearance to the psoriatic plaques its diagnosis was missed by several dermatologists. This may be due to the dark skin of this patient making the characteristic clinical ...

Subcutaneous sarcoid appears to be rare, particularly in Caucasians. When it does occur, it usually heralds systemic involvement. A case of subcutaneous sarcoid is reported, which is unusual both in its extent, and by its lack of demonstrable extra-cutaneous disease. Cutaneous sarcoid is well recognized, but subcutaneous sarcoid has rarely ...

We examined HTLV-I integration patterns in nine cases of HTLV-I-seropositive patients with cutaneous lymphoproliferative disorders. The Southern blot on EcoRI digests of DNA revealed a discrete band of HTLV-I provirus (monoclonal integration) in either skin lesions or peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL). Four cases showed the monoclonal integration of HTLV-I provirus ...
