Scrofuloderma: a diagnostic challenge.

An Bras Dermatol 2019 Jan-Feb;94(1):102-104

Discipline of Dermatology, Medicine Course, Universidade Federal de São João del-Rei, Divinópolis (MG), Brazil.

Cutaneous tuberculosis is a rare form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, comprising 1-2% of cases. Caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis or related strains, it presents a wide range of clinical manifestations, mimicking other chronic dermatoses and leading to delayed diagnosis. A case of scrofuloderma is reported, whose diagnosis and treatment were only made six years after onset of the disease. Read More

An Bras Dermatol 2019 Jan-Feb;94(1):99-101

Department of Dermatology, Faculdade de Medicina de Botucatu, Universidade Estadual Paulista, Botucatu (SP), Brazil.

Primary cutaneous CD4+ small/medium T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder is a rare disease, with an indolent evolution and benign course. The classic presentation is a solitary nodule on the face or trunk. The disorder's rarity and clinical and histopathological characteristics, can make the diagnosis difficult. Read More

In-vivo assessment of a case of cutaneous sarcoidosis using reflectance confocal microscopy.

An Bras Dermatol 2019 Jan-Feb;94(1):93-95

Dermatology Service, Department of Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, United States of America.

Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a noninvasive imaging technique that allows visualization of the epidermis and papillary dermis with cellular-level resolution. Granulomatous reactions such as sarcoidosis could be assessed using RCM. The identification of bright beaded-like structures that could correspond to reticulin fibers overlying granulomas, in association with dermoscopy, may be a very useful approach in the diagnosis of sarcoidosis and for the differentiation of this granulomatous entity with superficial cutaneous metastasis.

Desmoplastic melanoma, a distinct and uncommon variant, is characterized as an invasive lesion with proliferation of fusiform melanocytes in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue, associated with varying patterns of desmoplasia. Neurotropism and neural differentiation may occur. The clinical presentation is variable and nonspecific, easily confused with other fibrous neoplasms. Read More

Follicular thyroid carcinoma metastatic to skin: a small papule and a big diagnostic change.

An Bras Dermatol 2019 Jan-Feb;94(1):76-78

Department of Pathology, Laboratório Bacchi, Botucatu (SP), Brazil.

Cutaneous metastases are uncommon in daily practice, although very important, since they may be the first manifestation of an undiscovered primary neoplasm or the first indication of recurrence. Cutaneous metastases from the breast are the most frequent in women and cutaneous metastases from the lung are the most frequent in men. Thyroid carcinoma, despite representing the most frequent endocrine neoplasm, is considered a rare neoplasm, corresponding to 1% of malignant neoplasms diagnosed. Read More

Evaluation of vitamin D plasma levels after mild exposure to the sun with photoprotection.

An Bras Dermatol 2019 Jan-Feb;94(1):56-61

Discipline of Dermatology, Department of Dermatology and Radiotherapy, Universidade Estadual Paulista, Botucatu (SP), Brasil.

Background: Most of the organism's vitamin D (VD) is obtained through the cutaneous synthesis after exposure to the sun's UVB radiation. Sunscreens are indicated for the prevention of actinic damage to the skin, however, there are few clinical trials assessing the synthesis of cutaneous VD in real-life situations of sun exposure with ordinary clothing and usual photoprotection.

Objectives: To evaluate the synthesis of VD with suberythemal sun exposure in healthy adults using topical photoprotection (SPF 30). Read More

An Bras Dermatol 2019 Jan-Feb;94(1):17-23

Division of Dermatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Universidade Estadual de Ponta Grossa, Ponta Grossa (PR), Brazil.

Background: Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis are life-threatening blistering drug reactions with high incidence of ocular sequela. The term 'Epidermal Necrolysis' has been recently used to better describe the full spectrum of the disease that includes Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis at opposite ends, which differ by the extent of body surface area with epidermal detachment. SCORTEN is a mortality prognosis score for 'Epidermal Necrolysis' cases that still needed validation in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Read More

Report of 73 cases of cutaneous sporotrichosis in Mexico.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Nov/Dec;93(6):907-909

Service of Dermatology and Department of Mycology, Hospital General de México "Dr. Eduardo Liceaga", Ciudad de México, Mexico.

We report 73 cases of cutaneous sporotrichosis from the Community Dermatology program, at the central and mountain areas of the state of Guerrero, Mexico. A similar number of cases was found between children and adults, mostly peasants and school-age children with rural occupations. Upper limbs were the mostly affected and the predominant clinical form was lymphocutaneous (56. Read More

We report a case of a 76-year-old patient with a history of recent weight loss and ulcerated umbilical nodular lesion. Initially, we considered the diagnostic hypothesis of Sister Mary Joseph's nodule. However, histopathological evaluation revealed that it was an ulcerated intradermal nevus. Read More

Paracoccidioidomycosis manifested by sarcoidosis-like cutaneous lesions and caused by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis sensu stricto (S1a).

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Nov/Dec;93(6):902-904

Laboratory of Medical Mycology, Departamento de Microbiologia e Imunologia, Instituto de Biociências de Botucatu, Universidade Estadual Paulista, Botucatu (SP), Brazil.

Molecular studies have shown more than one species of the genus Paracoccidioides to be the causal agent of paracoccidioidomycosis. Efforts have been made to correlate the identified species with epidemiological and clinical data of patients, aiming to determine the real meaning and impact of new species. Bearing this objective in mind, the authors report a clinical case of paracoccidioidomycosis, from São Paulo state, Brazil, that manifested as uncommon sarcoid-like cutaneous lesions and was caused by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis sensu stricto (S1a).

Vertical plane ex vivo dermoscopy: a novel dermoscopic technique. A preliminary study.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Nov/Dec;93(6):899-901

Department of Pathology, Santa Casa de São Paulo, São Paulo (SP), Brazil.

Dermoscopic examination allows visualization of horizontal images on the skin, showing well-defined patterns. The authors propose ex vivo dermoscopic visualization using a vertical view of skin sections. The new image clearly distinguishes the stratum corneum, epidermis, and dermis as well as the anatomical location of the pigment. Read More

Dermatoscopy: an auxiliary resource for the diagnosis of poroid neoplasms.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Nov/Dec;93(6):896-898

Service of Dermatology, Hospital das Clínicas, Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo (SP), Brazil.

Poroid neoplasms are benign epithelial proliferations with eccrine sweat gland differentiation. They are a challenging diagnosis because of the clinical heterogeneity, being able to mimic several malignant neoplasms. They are classified into classic poroma, hidroacanthoma simplex, dermal duct tumor and poroid hidradenoma. Read More

Dermoscopy of squamoid eccrine ductal carcinoma: an aid for early diagnosis.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Nov/Dec;93(6):893-895

Dermatology Service, Hospital do Servidor Público Estadual de São Paulo, São Paulo (SP), Brazil.

Squamoid eccrine ductal carcinoma is a cutaneous malignancy that originates from the eccrine sweat gland. A 76-year-old woman presented with an asymptomatic papule on her nose that had been present for one year. Dermoscopy showed pseudocysts, irregular linear crown vessels, and yellowish-brown globules surrounded by white halos. Read More

Chagas disease reactivation: cutaneous manifestations in a transplanted patient.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Nov/Dec;93(6):890-892

Infectology section, Department of Internal Medicine, Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Chagas disease is an endemic zoonosis caused by a protozoan agent called Trypanosoma cruzi. It is mainly transmitted by a hematophagous vector, and less frequently by blood transfusion, transplacental and solid organ transplant. In most cases, primary infection is not diagnosed and the disease progresses to a chronic phase. Read More
