    [Marking disorders of keratinization by means of lectins. II. Keratosis pilaris, lichen spinulosus, porokeratosis, lichen striatus and pityriasis rubra pilaris].

    Med Cutan Ibero Lat Am 1988 ;16(3):183-6
    Servicio de Dermatología, Facultad de Medicina, Hospital Clínico, Valencia.
    Lectins are used to study four cases of keratosis pilaris, four of lichen spinulosus, 11 of porokeratosis, 8 of striated lichen and one case of pityriasis rubra pilaris, with the aim of providing data to improve knowledge of the histogenesis of these processes.

    Topical treatment of pityriasis rubra pilaris with calcipotriol.
    Br J Dermatol 1994 May;130(5):675-8
    Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
    From a clinical, histological and therapeutic point of view, psoriasis and pityriasis rubra pilaris share important characteristics. Recently, calcipotriol has been shown to be an effective treatment in psoriasis, and we report three patients with pityriasis rubra pilaris who showed a favourable response to topical therapy with calcipotriol. In one case, analysis of markers for epidermal growth, differentiation and inflammation revealed reduction of suprabasal expression of keratin 16, and the number of T lymphocytes, monocytes and macrophages.

    Horny perifollicular mucinosis. An atypical pityriasis rubra pilaris-like eruption associated with HIV infection.
    Am J Dermatopathol 1993 Aug;15(4):358-62
    Department of Pathology, Hopital Pasteur, Nice, France.
    We present a case of pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP)-like eruption, in association with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, clinically characterized by follicular papules with some elongated spines and comedo-like lesions. The lesions were located on the back, flanks, and proximal extremities. Orthokeratotic follicular plugs and perifollicular mucinous degeneration were consistently observed on three biopsies.

    Focal acantholytic dyskeratosis occurring in pityriasis rubra pilaris.
    Am J Dermatopathol 1989 Apr;11(2):172-6
    Department of Pathology, Georgetown University Medical School, Washington, D.C.
    Focal acantholytic dyskeratosis (FAD) is a distinctive histologic pattern characterized by suprabasilar clefts surrounding dermal papillae (villi), acantholytic and dyskeratotic cells at all levels of the epidermis, hyperkeratosis, and parakeratosis. The features of FAD are typically seen in Darier's disease, warty dyskeratoma, and transient acantholytic dermatosis; they are also present in a variety of cutaneous neoplastic and nonneoplastic lesions. FAD, however, has not been previously described in lesions of inflammatory dermatoses. Read More
