On the basis of a literature review of the period 1950-1976, Krutchkoff et al questioned the possible premalignant nature of oral lichen planus. Their criticism was largely based on insufficiencies of data in support of the initial diagnoses of the condition. In this article, a review of the literature from ...

Cutaneous larva migrans is an intensely pruritic serpiginous eruption caused by the dog or cat hookworm. Often, the disease is self-limiting and no other significant pathology develops; however, a significant localized inflammatory response to the nematode is extremely common. We present a case of cutaneous larva migrans in which a ...

Becker's nevus is a unilateral, hyperpigmented cutaneous hamartoma usually with hypertrichosis. It occurs predominantly in boys, becoming apparent during adolescence, although several cases of congenital Becker's nevus have been reported.

We report a four-generation kindred with the complex of myxomas, spotty pigmentation and endocrine overactivity. This kindred demonstrates a relatively limited phenotypic expression with predominance of cutaneous features. Male-to-male transmission confirms the autosomal dominant nature of the condition. We propose that pilonidal sinus may be an associated manifestation in this ...
