Facial pustules due to drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome/drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms may histopathologically mimic eosinophilic pustular folliculitis: A case report.

J Cutan Pathol 2019 May 18;46(5):363-367. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Department of Dermatology, Nara Medical University School of Medicine, Nara, Japan.

Pustules with facial and/or neck edema is one characteristic feature of drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome/drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DIHS/DRESS) at the early stage. Although several retrospective histopathologic studies on DIHS/DRESS have been reported, the detailed histopathologic findings of facial pustules for DIHS/DRESS are unavailable. We herein report a case of DIHS/DRESS with facial pustules that was histopathologically similar to eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF). Read More

Exp Dermatol 2018 Jun 12. Epub 2018 Jun 12.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, Miami Itch Center, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL, USA.

Basophils are blood granulocytes and normally constitute <1% of blood peripheral leucocytes. Basophils share some morphological and functional similarities with mast cells, and basophils were once regarded as redundant and negligible circulating mast cells. However, recent studies reveal the indispensable roles of basophils in various diseases, including allergic and pruritic diseases. Read More

An Bras Dermatol 2016 Sep-Oct;91(5):646-648

Instituto Lauro de Souza Lima (ILSL) - Bauru (SP), Brazil.

Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) or Ofuji disease is a rare dermatosis, prone to recurrence and chronicity. The peak incidence occurs in the third decade of life and its exact etiology remains unknown. Evidence suggests that the expression of adhesion molecules and the production of cytokines activate the follicular unit, but the stimulus that triggers these changes remains unclear. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan.

Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) is a sterile inflammatory dermatosis of unknown etiology. In addition to classic EPF, which affects otherwise healthy individuals, an immunocompromised state can cause immunosuppression-associated EPF (IS-EPF), which may be referred to dermatologists in inpatient services for assessments. Infancy-associated EPF (I-EPF) is the least characterized subtype, being observed mainly in non-Japanese infants. Read More

Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) is a non-infectious inflammatory dermatosis of unknown etiology that principally affects the hair follicles. There are three variants of EPF: (i) classic EPF; (ii) immunosuppression-associated EPF, which is subdivided into HIV-associated (IS/HIV) and non-HIV-associated (IS/non-HIV); and (iii) infancy-associated EPF. Oral indomethacin is efficacious, especially for classic EPF. Read More

Lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) is an uncommon CD30 lymphoproliferative disorder with a relatively excellent prognosis. Ten to twenty percent of cases, however, are associated with a lymphoma, typically systemic or cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma, mycosis fungoides, or Hodgkin lymphoma. Subtypes divide LyP into infiltrate-descriptive categories along a spectrum of histological manifestation. Read More

CUTANEOUS EPITHELIOTROPIC T-CELL LYMPHOMA WITH METASTASES IN A VIRGINIA OPOSSUM (DIDELPHIS VIRGINIANA).

J Zoo Wildl Med 2015 Jun;46(2):409-13

A 2-yr-old, captive, intact female Virginia opossum ( Didelphis virginiana ) with a 7-mo history of ulcerative dermatitis and weight loss was euthanatized for progressive worsening of clinical signs. Initially the opossum was treated with several courses of antibiotics, both topically and systemically; systemic nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication; and, later, systemic glucocorticoids, with no improvement in clinical signs. Histopathologic samples of skin lesions taken 3 mo into the course of disease revealed no evidence of neoplasia; however, cytologic samples of a skin lesion taken 5 mo into the course of disease revealed mature lymphocytes, and were suggestive of cutaneous lymphoma.

Eosinophilic skin diseases, commonly termed as eosinophilic dermatoses, refer to a broad spectrum of skin diseases characterized by eosinophil infiltration and/or degranulation in skin lesions, with or without blood eosinophilia. The majority of eosinophilic dermatoses lie in the allergy-related group, including allergic drug eruption, urticaria, allergic contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, and eczema. Parasitic infestations, arthropod bites, and autoimmune blistering skin diseases such as bullous pemphigoid, are also common. Read More

Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) is characterized by a non-infectious infiltration of eosinophils in the hair follicles. It has three variants: (i) classic EPF; (ii) immunosuppression-associated EPF, which herein is subdivided into HIV-associated (IS/HIV) and non-HIV-associated (IS/non-HIV); and (iii) infancy-associated EPF (I-EPF). The rarity of EPF has hindered our understanding of this entity. Read More

Eosinophilic follicular reaction induced by Demodex folliculorum mite: a different disease from eosinophilic folliculitis.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2015 Jun 27;40(4):413-5. Epub 2015 Jan 27.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital La Fe, Valencia, Spain.

Eosinophilic folliculitis (EF) is an idiopathic dermatitis included in the spectrum of eosinophilic pustular follicular reactions. Demodex folliculorum has been implicated as contributing to the pathogenesis of human immunodeficiency virus-associated EF, but it has not been described outside this context. We present an immunocompetent 65-year-old white man with a 5-year history of recurrent pruritic erythematous and oedematous lesions on his face, neck and scalp. Read More

Department of Pathology, Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty, Istanbul University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: The recognition of folliculotropic mycosis fungoides (FMF) may pose diagnostic challenges, owing to the variety of histopathological findings.

Objective: In this study, our aim is to describe the broad spectrum of the histopathological patterns in a total of 86 biopsies from 38 patients with FMF, together with the clinical features.

Results: The most frequent histopathologic pattern was the folliculocentric/folliculotropic pattern, with or without follicular mucinosis. Read More
