Department of Ophthalmology, Medical School, State University of Sao Paulo, UNESP - Botucatu, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

We report a healthy 18-year-old male Saudi with bilateral agenesis of the lacrimal puncta and canaliculi associated with large dacryocystocele on the right side without tearing or inflammation, detected in conjunction with other characteristic features of lacrimo-auriculo-dento-digital dysplasia syndrome. Computed tomography scan indicated that dacryocystoceles were bilateral and asymmetrical, with large dimensions at the right side and associated to a right side maxillary sinus mucocele. The right dacryocystocele was surgically removed, and the histology indicated characteristics of the lacrimal sac. Read More

Superficial Angiomyxomas Frequently Demonstrate Loss of Protein Kinase A Regulatory Subunit 1 Alpha Expression: Immunohistochemical Analysis of 29 Cases and Cutaneous Myxoid Neoplasms With Histopathologic Overlap.

Am J Surg Pathol 2022 02;46(2):226-232

Departments of Pathology.

Superficial angiomyxomas (SAMs) are benign cutaneous tumors that arise de novo and in the setting of the Carney complex (CC), an autosomal dominant disease with several cutaneous manifestations including lentigines and pigmented epithelioid melanocytomas. Although most SAM do not pose a diagnostic challenge, a subset can demonstrate histopathologic overlap with other myxoid tumors that arise in the skin and subcutis. Traditional immunohistochemical markers are of limited utility when discriminating SAM from histopathologic mimics. Read More

Philip R Cohen

Skin Appendage Disord 2018 Oct 26;4(4):331-334. Epub 2018 Mar 26.

Department of Dermatology, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, California, USA.

Half-and-half nails were originally described as a transverse leukonychia in patients with chronic renal disease; other conditions (such as Behcet's and Crohn's disease) and medications (such as isoniazid) have also been associated with the nail changes. However, longitudinal half-and-half nails (affecting the medial aspects of the nails) have previously been reported on the great toes of an older woman and, in the present case, on the thumbs of an elderly man; neither person had Behcet's, Crohn's, or kidney disease or was receiving isoniazid. The woman had a true leukonychia, bilateral hallux valgus deformity, and chronic trauma to her medial nail folds. Read More

Mod Rheumatol 2019 Jan 13;29(1):188-191. Epub 2016 Jul 13.

a Department of Orthopaedic Surgery , Hirosaki University Graduate School of Medicine , Hirosaki , Japan.

Digital mucous cysts are a type of benign cysts of the digits, typically located at the distal interphalangeal joints or in the proximal nail fold, which usually occur on the hands. The diagnosis of digital mucous cysts is relatively easy because of its light-transmitting property, but the treatment is often difficult because of complications including recurrence, infection, diminished range of motion, and nail deformity. We report a case of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) showing good course after surgical treatment of mucous cyst at the interphalangeal joint of the great toe. Read More
