Pachydermoperiostosis (PDP), otherwise known as primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy, is characterized by digital clubbing, pachydermia and subperiosteal new bone formation. Joint pain, polyarthritis, cutis verticis gyrata, seborrhea, and hyperhidrosis are frequently associated to this condition. We report a 17-year-old boy presented with pain and swelling of knees and ankles, and progressive thickening of skin face with seborrhea from about 4 years. Read More

Cutis verticis gyrata (CVG) is a benign proliferation and hypertrophy involving the scalp which exhibits furrows resembling the cerebral cortex convolutions. The diagnosis of CVG is based on clinical findings. Complementary investigations are recommended to rule out local or systemic underlying disorders. Read More

Pachydermoperiostosis (PDP) is a rare disorder characterized by pachydermia, digital clubbing, periostitis, and an excess of affected males. It is the primary form of hypertrophic osteoarthropathy (HOA) and there are some rare associations of PDP with other disorders. Here we describe a patient with Crohn's disease associated with PDP.

Congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) are nevi that are present at birth or arise within the first few weeks of life. They are often found on the trunk, head and neck and extremities. We report herein an unusual presentation of a CMN as a cerebriform tumour presenting as secondary cutis verticis gyrata on the scalp of an 18-year-old Filipino male. Read More

Background: Pachydermoperiostosis is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder characterized by the association of periostosis and pachydermia. To date, two genes involved in prostaglandin metabolism, HPGD and SLCO2A1, have been identified.
Patients And Methods: A 7-year-old girl presented digital clubbing of the hands and feet, curved nails, hyperhidrosis, and pachydermia, as well as eczema of the trunk and limbs. Read More

We report on a rare case of pachydermoperiostosis (PDP) in a 25-year-old male who was admitted to our hospital because of enlargement of fingers and toes. Through examination, we found some typical features on the patient including finger clubbing, periostosis, pachydermia, and cutis verticis gyrata (CVG). But laboratory tests were almost within normal ranges, which ruled out rheumatic arthritis, osteopulmonary arthropathy, thyroid acropathy, and acromegaly. Read More

Introduction: Cutis verticis gyrata is a rare skin disorder characterized by formation of thick skin folds and grooves. Because of the risk of malignant transformation, these lesions must be surgically excised. In this study, the authors aimed to present a successful reconstruction of scalp with free latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap after total excision of giant cerebriform intradermal nevus that causes cutis verticis gyrata.

Cutis verticis gyrata (CVG) is a skin condition characterized by excessive growth of the skin of the scalp, resulting in furrows and folds which are similar to the gyri of the brain cortex. CVG can be classified into two forms: primary (essential and non-essential) and secondary. We report the case of a 53-year-old male patient with the primary type of CVG. Read More

Pachydermoperiostosis is a rare genetic disease characterized by finger clubbing, periostosis, cutis verticis gyrata and pachydermia accompanied by acroosteolysis and hyperhidrosis. Recently, two susceptibility genes, HPGD and SLCO2A1, have been identified, whose protein products are involved in the transportation of prostaglandin and metabolism underlying pachydermoperiostosis. Here the genetic basis of pachydermoperiostosis and its correlation with its clinical phenotype are reviewed, which may provide a reference for basic research and clinic diagnosis for the disease.

Pachydermoperiostosis is a rare hereditary disease, which presents with the cutaneous manifestations of pachydermia and cutis verticis gyrata. Histological findings in pachydermia frequently include dermal edema, mucin deposition, elastic fiber degeneration, dermal fibrosis and adnexal hyperplasia. However, the severity of these findings varies between clinical reports, and a systematic multiple-case clinicopathological correlative analysis has not been performed to date. Read More

Unusual congenital or early-onset skin lesions on the scalp often pose a diagnostic challenge particularly as the clinical evaluation may be hampered by dense hair growth. Thus, this paper provides a concise review on developmental abnormalities and nevi with exclusive or predominant scalp localization. Aplasia cutis congenita occurs as an isolated finding, in association with genetic syndromes, nevi and anomalies or as a consequence of intrauterine trauma and teratogens. Read More

Pachydermoperiostosis or primary hypertropic osteoarthropathy is a rare hereditary disorder that was first described in 1868. It is characterized by digital clubbing, pachydermia (thickening of the facial skin and/or scalp), and periostosis (swelling of periarticular tissue and subperiosteal new bone formation). We report a case of a patient with the complete form of the disease, and with a unique appearance of the hair shaft and eyelashes. Read More

Cutis verticis gyrata (CVG) is a descriptive term for a dermal sign in which deep furrows and convoluted ridges are seen upon the scalp. They are formed due to thickening of the skin folds of the scalp and produce an appearance that resembles the gyri of the brain. The condition is classified primary when the etiology is unknown or neurologically based. Read More

We report the occurrence of cutis verticis gyrata (CVG), a disfiguring dermatological condition, in four patients with HIV-related lipodystrophy (HIVLD). These four patients had abnormal metabolic and hormonal lab values which we compare with metabolic and hormonal perturbations cited in previous HIVLD cohorts. In addition, we describe the sole use of poly-L-lactic acid as a potential treatment for decreasing the appearance of CVG-associated ridges. Read More

The objective of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and clinical effect of repairing scalp defect after the excision of cutis verticis gyrata using expanded scalp skin flaps. For this purpose, 8 patients with cutis verticis gyrata were subjected to scalp skin expander implantation under the skin. After saline injection and scalp expansion for 2-3 months, the cutis verticis gyrata was excised and the expanded scalp flaps were applied to recover the skin defect. Read More
