Abstract

We report a case of a 23-year-old male patient with tuberculosis verrucous cutis on the foot for a duration of six months without responding to routine treatment. Tuberculosis is a common disease worldwide. Tuberculosis verrucosa cutis is an exogenous infection occurring in a previously sensitized patient by direct inoculation of the organism. It occurs in sensitized patients with a moderate to high immune response. The diagnosis in our patient was confirmed by history, clinical examination, histopathological examination and the patient’s response to anti-tuberculous therapy.

Keywords: Tuberculosis verrucosa cutis; cutaneous tuberculosis; extrapulmonary tuberculosis; dermatologic manifestation

Abstract

Multiple clustered dermatofibroma (MCDF) is an unusual variant of dermatofibroma (DF) presentation, localized on one segment of the body. Multiple dermatofibroma is a term for when there are more than 15 dermatofibromas, which in itself is already a rare condition. The dermatofibromas usually appear in younger adults and are predominantly located on lower parts of the body. No associations, except one case with pulmonary hypertension, were described in patients with MCDF. Herein we present another case of this rare complaint in a 58 year old female with clustered lesions on the thigh. Pericardial cyst was identified in our patient during routine chest X-ray and the patient is asymptomatic. MCDFs do not usually require treatment unless requested by the patient for cosmetic reason. This variant of MCDF, which is neither congenital nor eruptive, is extraordinarily rare, with only 13 cases reported. Further reports may identify possible associations of MCDF.

Keywords: Dermatofibroma; histiocytomas; pericardial cyst

Abstract

Adenoid squamous cell carcinoma is an uncommon histopathological variant of squamous cell carcinoma characterized by acantholysis of tumor cells creating pseudolumina and the appearance of glandular differentiation. It is also known as pseudoglandular, pseudoangiosarcomatous, adenoid, epithelioma dyskeratoticum, or adenoacanthoma. In this article, we describe and analyze three cases of acantholytic cell carcinoma. The purpose is to verify if the data of our cases can be validated with scientific information. All our cases presented lesions in the face, and in one of them the developed tumor on the skin showed actinic keratosis. The other two tumors were located in the right side of the face, and both were big: the bigger tumor was approximately 8 × 4 cm and the other one with a size of 6 × 2.5 cm. Due to the size and location, they were both send to the oncologist for treatment. One of our cases showed metatypical carcinomas accompanied by acantholytic variant of squamous cell carcinoma. None of our cases presented metastasis. The histopathological finding were keratinized squamous tumor cell type, adenoid structures with round spaces with a defined wall of at least one-cell width, and spaces with isolated or group of dyskeratotic cells.

Abstract

Giant cell tumour of the tendon sheath (GCTTS) is a slow-growing, usually painless benign lesion of soft tissues. We report the case of a 38-year-old male with a painless, slowly enlarging swelling on right thumb in order to highlight the role of fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in diagnosing GCTTS.

Abstract

A vascular malformation is a congenital growth of artery, venous, capillary or lymphatic vessels leading to functional and aesthetic problems. Although surgical maneuvers allow correction of abnormalities, it poses risk of intra and post-operative blood loss. Sealants have been used during surgical procedures to reduce blood loss. A descriptive study was conducted on a new generation Floseal® to demonstrate its effectiveness to reduce intra and post-operative bleeding during vascular malformation corrective surgery. A group of 19 patients presented with vascular malformations and underwent surgical correction associated with Floseal® use. The mean age of our patients’ was 12.3 years (1 to 33 years). The majority of them (57.6%) were aged between 5 to 15 years. The most common vascular malformation treated was hemangioma (45.5%). Majority of these lesions were located on the head (72.7%). Blood transfusion was not accounted for in any of the cases as average blood loss was 18.18 mL (5 to 70 mL). The average length of hospital stay was 2.4 days. Ten patients (90.9%) were discharged in 2 days after drain was removed. Floseal® , a new generation local haemostatic, is easy to use and efficient to achieve haemostasis for treatment of vascular malformation. Haemostasis was achieved in a short time and blood loss was minimal. However, caution should be taken to reduce allergic reactions and potential viral transmissions, and further study should be done to recommend its use.

Abstract

Total nail ablation for the treatment of onychodystrophies can be performed by using chemicals, surgical resection or laser ablation of nail matrix. A female patient with bilateral severe onychodystrophy as a result of inadvertent previous nail surgeries was treated surgically. Proximal complete nail matrix resection and distal 10 mm wide transverse strip partial nail bed resection were performed. A 5 mm wide transverse strip of nail bed was left intact proximally. Proximal nail matrix defect was closed by using the skin of proximal nail fold. The distal nail bed defect was reconstructed by using triple flap technique which was composed of a main central advancement flap containing ventral toe skin and two side flaps containing nail fold skin. The patient healed without any problem and her nail problem was treated successfully. The cosmetic appearance of her first toes was acceptable. Surgical nail ablation followed by volar skin coverage of dorsal surface of the distal phalanx bone by using triple flap technique is an effective surgical treatment method for the correction of advanced nail plate deformities requiring total nail ablation.

Abstract

The review is dedicated to the modern concepts in understanding the age-related changes of skin protective functions, with an emphasis on the impairments in interaction between the immune cells of innate and acquired immunity, resulting in a decrease in antigen-specific T cell immune surveillance in the skin. We discuss the various defects of T cells and their environment as well as focus on the issue of possible correction of T-reg and other cells activity in the skin which would increase the level of immune surveillance in elderly persons and reduce the risk of malignant neoplasms or skin infections developing.

Abstract

Fiddler’s neck which is also referred to as a “violin hickey” is a benign dermatologic occupational disease associated with the use of certain instruments like the violin, viola, cello etc. It is believed to be a type of allergic contact dermatitis, manifesting as an acute or chronic eczematous lesion typically at the submandibular and/or supraclavicular region on the side of neck. It can present as erythema, oedema and/or vesicles in the acute stage and as scaling, lichenification, hyperpigmentation and scarring in the chronic stage. Acne mechanica has also been considered by some authors as a presentation of fiddler’s neck. Occasionally, there may be associated swelling redness or a cystic lesion that makes it difficult to differentiate from lymphedema or a salivary gland tumor. PubMed search for articles about this entity resulting in instrument-induced dermatitis yielded few results of this forgotten entity which mimics a love bite (love hickey). For diagnosis, history of the usage of a string instrument which is held between the shoulder and neck, local physical examination and a positive patch test are pre-requisites. Management of fiddler’s neck includes application of topical mild steroid, emollient, proper instrument handling, neck padding, changing the material and polish of the instrument, and/or reducing the amount of playing time. Surgical intervention is usually not advisable unless cystic or tumorous lesions are the manifesting feature. The authors intend to revisit this entity and report an improvised modality that is being used by these instrumentalists in India which may help in prevention of this condition.

Abstract

Reconstruction of axillary defects following surgery or trauma has always been a significant challenge for plastic surgeons. A variety of reconstruction options are available, including directed cicatrization, skin grafts and local flaps, but all of these procedures may allow skin contracture and leave unsightly scars.

Abstract

Foreign body granuloma reaction is a tissue response to some extraneous materials which incite a characteristic pattern of granulomatous reaction. Several cases of foreign body granulomas on the face have been reported, especially after the injection of dermal fillers. Oleoma or paraffinoma is defined as a foreign body granuloma resulting from the injection of oily substances into the skin or subcutaneous tissue. We report a case of an adult woman who had developed foreign body granulomas due to a self-injection of sweet almond oil into the glabella and periorbital area. The diagnosis was based on a thorough interrogation, clinical features and histopathological findings. Treatment of foreign body granuloma is challenging. At first, oral prednisone was initiated with the improvement of the inflammatory signs and reduction of the lesions’ dimension, but recurrence of the lesions occurred when the dose was decreased. After research of literature, a lowdose minocycline regime was prescribed for its beneficial effects in granulomatous diseases, with encouraging results.

Abstract

Laugier-Hunziker syndrome (LHS) is an idiopathic hypermelanotic condition that displays a characteristic pattern of mucosal, acral and nail pigmentation. The etiology is unknown, while its benign nature has been repeatedly highlighted. Owing to close resemblance to more serious disorders, it is necessary that the diagnostic features are understood; and thereby we report two sporadic cases of LHS in different age groups displaying varied presentations with identifiable features.

Abstract

Split-thickness skin grafting (STSG) is commonly used to cover raw areas of various aetiologies. Donor sites are known to get infected sometimes, but necrotising fasciitis is not often reported. We report here a case of donor-site necrotising fasciitis and its successful management. There is a need for surgeons to stay vigilant for this rare but probable complication of skin grafting.

Keywords: Skin grafting; necrotising fasciitis; donor site
