A 41 year-old woman was diagnosed as having limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis (SSc) in March 2012. The cutaneous impairment of SSc was characterized by sclerodactyly associated with pitting scars; systemic manifestations of SSc included esophageal involvement, with both absence of peristalsis in the lower two-thirds of the oesophageal body and low pressure in the lower oesophageal sphincter. In 2017, the patient presented with livedo reticularis lesions of her abdomen (Panel A) evolving for one month. Read More

Erythema ab igne (EAI) is a cutaneous finding caused by prolonged heat exposure and is characterized by a reticular, brownish-pigmented, often telangiectatic dermatosis. The eruption is reminiscent of livedo reticularis, which is typically seen in the setting of a number of rheumatologic conditions, most prominently vasculitis. Identification of key features distinguishing EAI from livedo reticularis can aid in the diagnosis of EAI and correct elucidation of the underlying etiology. Read More

Background: Various specific and non-specific dermatological manifestations can be found in patients with psychiatric ailments. Most studies in this regard have been conducted on an outpatient basis and not much work has been done on patients admitted with psychiatric diseases.
Methods: This cross-sectional hospital-based study involved two groups of admitted psychiatric patients over a period of 1 year, involving 100 patients in each group. Read More

Erythema ab igne (EAI) represents the stereotype of a modern technology induced disease. Originally produced by repeated exposure of the skin to a heat source, more often because of habits related to the job or personal activities, this condition now tends to occur more frequently, being associated with a variety of modern instruments. The aim of our report is to discuss this strange medical condition with a focus on clinical features, possible confounding differential diagnoses and recommendations for prevention. Read More

Erythema ab igne is a localised, cutaneous condition consisting of reticulate hyperpigmentation, epidermal atrophy, and telangiectasias. It is caused by repetitive and prolonged exposure to moderate heat that is insufficient for producing burns. Currently, erythema ab igne is most commonly observed following repeated use of hot water bottles, infrared lamps and heating pads. Read More

Erythema ab igne (EAI) is a persistent, chronic skin condition resulting from prolonged exposure to infrared radiation, experienced as heat. Once associated with traditional warming sources like wood burning stoves or open fires, modern, infrared exposure originates also from newer sources like laptops and heating pads and may be creating a rebound of EAI. The epidemiology may be different too, with younger patients than previously seen. Read More

Erythema ab igne is a condition characterized by skin changes due to chronic exposure to moderate temperature. We describe a female patient with continuous use of a laptop computer on exposed legs for 6 months and consequent development of reticulated hyperpigmentation at the area. Histopathological examination revealed epidermal atrophy, collagen fragmentation, and vacuolar changes in the basal layer, among other signs. Read More

Chronically ill patients often develop uncommon exam findings. A 16-year-old female with end-stage renal disease secondary to immune complex-mediated glomerulonephritis on peritoneal dialysis (PD) developed a pruritic, hyperpigmented reticular rash on her abdomen, sparing the PD catheter insertion site. The rash appeared approximately 6 weeks after initiating PD. Read More

Over the last few years, dermoscopy has been shown to be a useful tool in assisting the noninvasive diagnosis of various general dermatological disorders. In this article, we sought to provide an up-to-date practical overview on the use of dermoscopy in general dermatology by analysing the dermoscopic differential diagnosis of relatively common dermatological disorders grouped according to their clinical presentation, i.e. Read More

Erythema ab igne is an asymptomatic cutaneous condition caused by exposure to heat. Cases of erythema ab igne may prove to be diagnostically challenging due to lack of familiarity with the condition. While this dermatosis carries a favorable prognosis, nonmelanoma skin cancers have been reported to arise within lesions of erythema ab igne. Read More

We present three girls with the eating disorder anorexia nervosa (AN) presenting with erythema ab igne (EAI), a benign, reticular, erythematous dermatosis caused by repeated prolonged skin exposure to mild heat. AN has been associated with abnormal peripheral vascular response to cold, vasoconstriction of the limbs, low hand blood flow, exaggerated response to cold stimuli, subnormal core temperature, and a general feeling of cold that may encourage prolonged heat exposure and induce EAI.

Erythema ab igne (EAI) was a very common disease in the past, when it occurred mainly among people who worked with fire, or in people who had used heat sources in contact with the skin for warming purposes for long time. In the last decades, with the introduction of central heating in the buildings, EAI incidence was remarkably decreased in Western Countries, and it was found almost exclusively among elderly, and in people affected by defects in thermoregulation or alteration of periphery circulation. Recently, a new slight increase of EAI prevalence has been observed, although with some new features. Read More

Erythema ab igne (EAI) is a dermatosis characterised by reticulate red-brown pigmentation and telengiectasia resulting from long-term exposure to infrared radiation. It generally occurs in individuals using heating devices in the winter, those who frequently use hot compresses, and those who prefer hot environments. It generally occurs on the feet of women but may also occur on the hips and thighs. Read More

Erythema ab igne (EAI), also known as "toasted skin syndrome" or "heatinduced circumscribed dermal melanosis", presents with pigmented reticular skin lesions with telangiectasias due to prolonged thermal radiation exposure. This article describes a 16-year-old male patient with EAI due to the use of a thermal pillow, and discusses a potential causative agent of EAI. The potential hazards of misusing new technological equipment and the importance of consumer education are also discussed. Read More

Erythema ab igne (EAI) is a skin lesion, which is characterized by a localized netlike erythema. For the occurrence of the dermatosis a continuous or regular heat exposure and infrared radiation to a skin area is necessary. The reticulated maculae could fade after stopping the heat exposure, persist as hyperpigmentation and in single cases a malignant transformation is possible. Read More
