Primary cutaneous inoculation blastomycosis occurs less commonly than secondary blastomycosis, in which cutaneous lesions most often originate from a primary pulmonary infection which disseminates through the blood or lymphatics to involve the skin. In secondary cutaneous blastomycosis, the primary pulmonary infection is frequently subclinical at the time cutaneous lesions manifest. ...

Cutaneous mastocytosis can be divided into 4 different clinical variants--urticaria pigmentosa, solitary mastocytoma, diffuse cutaneous mastocytosis, and telangiectasia macularis eruptiva perstans. Skin findings are often accompanied by symptoms secondary to mast cell release of mediators. These symptoms can be both localized to the skin lesion and systemic because of the ...

BACKGROUND: Primary cutaneous CD30+ lymphoproliferative disorders include lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) and primary cutaneous CD30+ anaplastic large T-cell lymphoma (ALCL). Because of overlapping histological features, it is impossible to distinguish ALCL from LyP on histological grounds. MUM1 (Multiple Myeloma oncogene 1) is expressed in systemic ALCL and classical Hodgkin lymphoma. MUM1 ...

Nevus depigmentosus is a congenital disorder characterized by a nonprogressive hypopigmented lesion, which may not be apparent at birth. Thus, it is sometimes difficult to differentiate vitiligo from nevus depigmentosus only by clinical features. We postulated that the histologic changes in lesional and perilesional skin might be different in the ...

Malakoplakia is an acquired granulomatous disorder first described by Michaelis and Gutmann in 1902. The pathogenesis of malakoplakia is poorly understood, but it is thought to be secondary to an acquired bacteriocidal defect in macrophages occurring mostly in immunosuppressed patients or in the setting of autoimmune disease. Malakoplakia has been ...
