    Bullous Pemphigoid Masquerading as Erythema Annulare Centrifugum.
    Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2017 Oct;25(3):255-256
    Sheng-Yiao Lin, No. 100, Tzyou 1st Road, Kaohsiung 807, Taiwan;
    Dear Editor, Bullous pemphigoid (BP), a relatively common autoimmune blistering disease in the elderly, is characterized by large, tense bullae on urticarial, erythematous, or normal skin. However, atypical BP with polymorphic clinical presentations is rarely encountered, leading to misdiagnosis and delayed treatments (1). BP with lesions resembling erythema gyratum repens or figurate erythema has been regarded as a paraneoplastic phenomenon (1). Read More

    Neutrophilic skin lesions in autoimmune connective tissue diseases: nine cases and a literature review.
    Medicine (Baltimore) 2014 Dec;93(29):e346
    From the Dermatology Department (EH, AS, MJ, FC, MarB, MR, JDB) and Pathology Department (MDVP, MaxB, BCB), Paris Diderot University, Sorbonne Paris Cité, AP-HP, Saint Louis Hospital, Paris, France.
    The pathophysiology of neutrophilic dermatoses (NDs) and autoimmune connective tissue diseases (AICTDs) is incompletely understood. The association between NDs and AICTDs is rare; recently, however, a distinctive subset of cutaneous lupus erythematosus (LE, the prototypical AICTD) with neutrophilic histological features has been proposed to be included in the spectrum of lupus. The aim of our study was to test the validity of such a classification. Read More
