Favre-Racouchot disease (FRD) is a relatively common dermatosis induced by chronic sun exposure. FRD is clinically and histologically characterized by the presence of both comedones and cysts in the context of an elastotic degeneration of the dermis. Those lesions are mainly located in the face, especially in the malar and periorbital areas. Read More

Trichostasis spinulosa (TS) is a relatively common but underdiagnosed disorder of the pilosebaceous follicles in which there is follicular hyperkeratosis of a dilated hair follicle with retention of telogen hairs. Clinical presentation of this disorder can be confused with comedogenic acne, keratosis pilaris, eruptive vellus hair cysts, and Favre-Racouchot syndrome. A case of a nonpruritic variant of TS in a 16-year-old boy is reported because of its unusual location as well as presentation in the lower eyelid, giving an appearance of a double eyelid. Read More

Background: Favre-Racouchot syndrome (nodular cutaneous elastosis with cysts and comedones) is a cutaneous disease characterized by coexistence of cysts, comedones and elastotic nodules in actinically damaged skin, typically on the face. Ultraviolet radiation plays a significant role in the development of the disease. Unilateral lesions have been described. Read More

Favre-Racouchot syndrome (FRS) is a disorder consisting of solar elastosis with the presence of multiple cysts and open comedones. Although the exact mechanism of the condition is not known, FRS has been specifically connected to sun exposure, smoking and radiation exposure. The histological changes present in FRS reveal an atrophic epidermis and large masses of keratinous material, causing follicular plugging, as well as solar elastotic changes and possible basophilic degeneration of connective tissue.

This study details the case of periocular Favre-Racouchot disease an often underdiagnosed entity with a complex differential diagnosis. This is an unusual condition that can potentially affect the periocular region; however, there is little information regarding Favre-Racouchot disease reported in the peer-reviewed ophthalmology literature. Increased awareness of Favre-Racouchot disease among ophthalmologists, oculofacial surgeons, and other specialists can lead to proper diagnosis impacting treatment options and patient outcome.

The appearance of localized acne or comedo reaction during or shortly after radiotherapy is an unusual adverse event, but one that is probably underestimated. It can manifest as an inflammatory (papules, pustules, nodules), comedonal (open and closed comedones, Favre-Racouchot-like syndrome), or mixed presentation. We report two new cases of radiation-induced acne with different clinical aspects and discuss the main known features of this adverse event. Read More

Background: Favre-Racouchot syndrome is a cutaneous disease characterized by nodules, cysts, and comedones that typically develops on sun-exposed areas of the face. This syndrome most commonly affects white males between the ages of 40 and 60 years and is frequently associated with chronic sun exposure and, more recently, chronic cigarette smoking.
Objective: We report a case of Favre-Racouchot syndrome in a 39-year-old female who received 6 weeks of radiation therapy to treat a grade 3 oligodendroglioma. Read More

Favre-Racouchot disease commonly presents as comedones, cysts and elastosis in the periocular region of older men. Its etiology has been linked to several exogenous factors. Here we present 2 patients with strictly unilateral manifestation of the disease and a corresponding history of predominantly one-sided chronic occupational sun exposure and smoking, making the case for the causative role of these two factors.

Solar elastosis (SE) is a well-recognized manifestation of chronic sun exposure, mainly affecting white patients. Well-established clinical manifestations of SE include Favre-Racouchot syndrome, cutis rhomboidalis nuchae, actinic comedonal plaques, elastomas, elastotic nodules of the ears, elastotic bands, collagenous plaques of the hands and colloid millia. Bullous SE is a very unusual presentation of SE, which consists clinically of tense bullae on chronically sun-damaged skin and is characterized histopathologically by a dermal cleft within a dermis with severe SE.

Nevi can approximate the melanoma risk and demographic changes will increase the meaning of signs of skin aging (SSA). However, little is known about the epidemiology of nevi and SSA in the general adult population. We aimed to estimate the prevalence and age distribution of common and atypical nevi and SSA as well as gender differences in a large population-based sample. Read More

Elastic fibers in the extracellular matrix are an integral component of dermal connective tissue. The resilience and elasticity required for normal structure and function of the skin may be attributed to the network of elastic tissue. Advances in our understanding of elastic tissue physiology provide a foundation for studying the pathogenesis of elastic tissue disorders. Read More

Background: Vellus hair cyst is an uncommon developmental abnormality of the vellus follicle histologically defined as a stratified squamous epithelial-lined cyst containing one or more vellus hairs.
Methods: Herein, we report three patients with a heretofore described clinicopathologic condition consisting of multiple contiguous cysts of the ear helices showing solar elastosis and multiple cysts containing vellus hairs, microscopically.
Conclusion: Given the anatomic location, history of excessive ultraviolet exposure and pathologic alterations, we surmise that this is a condition related to Favre-Racouchot syndrome, which is predisposed by excessive ultraviolet light exposure. Read More

Background: Although hemodialysis has been associated with lesions of cutaneous aging, no controlled studies have been done in patients with chronic renal failure under periodic hemodialysis. Our purpose was to determine the prevalence of several clinical parameters of cutaneous aging and their relationship with hemodialysis.
Methods: One hundred fourteen patients on chronic hemodialysis were investigated for the presence of several cutaneous aging markers in a cross-sectional study, using multivariate analysis to minimize the confounding effect of age. Read More

A 59-year-old woman with a single cuff-like plaque, consisting of multiple skin-coloured to bluish cysts and comedones on her right forearm is reported. The solitary lesion resembled, morphologically and histologically, the Favre-Racouchot syndrome. The above condition is another case of the previously described actinic comedonal plaque, which seems to be a rare entity within the spectrum of disease caused by actinic damage to the skin.

Histologically and immunohistochemically MF infiltrate was recognized not only in the upper part of the dermis and in the epidermis but also around and within the walls of cystic lesions. Furthermore, the eccrine structures were also involved by MF infiltrate. Read More

The authors present a case of Favre-Racouchot syndrome (elastoidosis nodularis cystica et comedonica) in a male mason aged 65, associated with nodular-ulcerative type of basocellular skin neoplasm and seboroic keratosis of the irritative type. A special reference is given to nodular cystic elastoidosis (NCE) with concurrent numerous skin changes characteristic for chronic actinic skin lesions which were clinically evidenced. An objective examination of the patient revealed the presence of multiple follicular comedones, black in colour, the size of a pinhead, and of yellowish follicular papulas, 2-5 mm in size, of solid consistency, on the top of which is a formation similar to comedone.

Favre-Racouchot disease often is reported to be characterized by the association of cysts and comedos with prominent solar elastosis. Our histological study of patients who rarely exposed themselves to solar irradiation revealed no association between these signs. We detected only the presence of kerosis, as well as closed and open comedos. Read More
