    Clinical Presentation of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania major.
    Dermatology 2016 3;232(6):752-759. Epub 2017 Mar 3.
    Laboratory of Medical and Molecular Parasitology-Mycology (code LR12ES08), Department of Clinical Biology B, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Monastir, Monastir, Tunisia.
    Background/aims: The diagnosis of cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is based on the microscopic detection of amastigote, isolation of the parasite, or the detection of Leishmania DNA. Nevertheless, since these techniques are time consuming and not usually available in many endemic countries, the diagnosis remains clinical. Consequently, such disease may be overlooked because of its similarity to other skin diseases. Read More

    An Bras Dermatol 2013 Jul-Aug;88(4):608-10
    Fundação Lusíada, Santos(SP),Brazil.
    Cutaneous metastasis is a phenomenon that results from a tumor spreading via lymphatic or vascular embolization, direct implant during surgery or skin involvement by contiguity. The primary malignant tumor that most commonly metastasizes to the skin in women is breast cancer, which can be manifested through papulonodular lesions, erysipeloid or sclerodermiform infiltration, en cuirasse. We report the case of a female patient, 78 years old, with papular, scaly and confluent lesions in the right breast for one year, progressing to edema and skin infiltration, reduction of breast volume and plaque en cuirasse, and similar lesions in the contralateral breast and abdomen for four months.
