Cutaneous leishmaniasis, which is the most common form of leishmaniasis, classically presents as small erythematous papules and nodules that develop into ulcers with indurated, raised outer borders. However, lesions of cutaneous leishmaniasis can have pleomorphic and atypical presentations. The erysipeloid form is one of the rare, atypical presentations of cutaneous leishmaniasis. Read More

Department of Pathology, National Academy of Medical Sciences, Bir Hospital, Kathmandu, Nepal.

Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) can present with various skin lesions ranging from a single ulcer to diffuse multiple nodules. Here, we present a case of a 67-year-old man with a large erythematous well-defined indurated plaque over the left face for a duration of 4 months. A slit skin smear was performed, and it was stained with Giemsa stain which showed multiple amastigotes confirming the diagnosis of CL. Read More

Erysipelatoid Carcinoma.

Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2018 Jun;64(6):492-497

Medical School of Valença - Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brasil.

Erysipelatoid Carcinoma (EC), also known as Inflammatory Metastatic Carcinoma, is a rare form of cutaneous metastasis, secondary to an internal malignancy, more often related to breast cancer. Clinically, the lesion has a well-marked, bound erythematous appearance, much like an infectious process, such as erysipelas and cellulitis, these being the most common differential diagnoses. It is characterized by an acute or subacute appearance with an erythematous plaque, sometimes hot and painful, being more often situated in the primary tumor vicinity, especially in the thorax wall in the region of a mastectomy due to breast cancer.

causes swine erysipelas, an infection characterized by acute septicemia or chronic endocarditis and polyarthritis. Among 17 serovars, determined based on heat-stable peptidoglycan antigens, serovars 1 and 2 are most commonly associated with the disease; however, the molecular basis for the association between these serovars and virulence is unknown. To search for the genetic region defining serovar 1a (Fujisawa) strain antigenicity, we examined the 15-kb chromosomal region encompassing a putative pathway for polysaccharide biosynthesis, which was previously identified in the Fujisawa strain.

Lymphedema is a chronic disease with a progressively ingravescent evolvement and an appearance of recurrent complications of acute lymphangitic type; in nature it is mostly erysipeloid and responsible for a further rapid increase in the volume and consistency of edema. The purpose of this work is to present our experience in the minimally invasive treatment for recurrence of lymphedema; adapting techniques performed in the past which included large fasciotomy with devastating results cosmetically; but these techniques have been proposed again by the use of endoscopic equipment borrowed from the advanced laparoscopy surgery, which allows a monoskin access of about one cm.
