    Cryptococcal cellulitis: A rare entity histologically mimicking a neutrophilic dermatosis.

    J Cutan Pathol 2018 Jan 20;45(1):90-93. Epub 2017 Nov 20.
    Department of Dermatology, St. Joseph Mercy Health System, Ypsilanti, Michigan.
    Cutaneous Cryptococcus infection presents classically with granulomatous and gelatinous reactive patterns. Cases mimicking neutrophilic dermatoses have not been described. Conversely, neutrophilic dermatoses with degrading cells mimicking cryptococcal organisms have been reported. We report a case of cryptococcal cellulitis in an immunocompromised male with a robust neutrophilic infiltrate raising histologic consideration for a neutrophilic dermatosis.

    Introduction: Neutrophilic dermatosis may have various clinical presentations but share common histopathological manifestations with an aseptic infiltrate of polymorphonuclears neutrophils. Neutrophilic dermatosis of the hands is a recently described disorder of which we present a case.

    Neutrophilic dermatoses: an update.
    Am J Clin Dermatol 2014 Oct;15(5):413-23
    Department of Medicine (Dermatology), University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada,
    Neutrophilic dermatoses constitute a heterogeneous group of dermatologic diseases, which are unified by the predominance of neutrophils within the inflammatory infiltrate on histopathology. The aims of this review were to provide an update on the clinical and histologic presentation of the main neutrophilic dermatoses and to develop a guide for clinical practice. A structured literature search of PubMed, Medline, and Embase was performed, using the key words "neutrophilic disorders", "cutaneous small vessel vasculitis", "Sweet's syndrome", "bowel associated dermatosis arthritis syndrome", "Behcet's", "palisaded neutrophilic and granulomatous dermatosis", "rheumatoid neutrophilic dermatitis", and "pyoderma gangrenosum".

    Neutrophilic dermatosis of the dorsal hand.
    Wounds 2013 Jun;25(6):148-52
    Botswana-Baylor Children's Clinical Centre of Excellence, Gaborone, Botswana.
    Neutrophilic dermatosis of the dorsal hands (NDDH) is a rare condition often misdiagnosed as a localized cutaneous infection. A type of neutrophilic dermatosis, NDDH is considered to be a subset of Sweet's syndrome and is similar to pyoderma gangrenosum. The authors report 2 cases of male patients who presented with persistent ulcerative skin lesions. Read More
    Neutrophilic dermatoses: a review of current treatment options.

    Sweet syndrome, pyoderma gangrenosum, and subcorneal pustular dermatosis are neutrophilic dermatoses - conditions that have an inflammatory infiltrate consisting of mature polymorphonuclear leukocytes. The neutrophils are usually located within the dermis in Sweet syndrome and pyoderma gangrenosum; however, in subcorneal pustular dermatosis, they are found in the upper layers of the epidermis. Sweet syndrome, also referred to as acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, is characterized by pyrexia, elevated neutrophil count, painful erythematous cutaneous lesions that have an infiltrate of mature neutrophils typically located in the upper dermis, and prompt clinical improvement following the initiation of systemic corticosteroid therapy.
