Folliculitis decalvans is a rare clinical disorder classified as primary neutrophilic scarring alopecia with a slight preference for the male gender. Here, we report the use of autologous fat transplantation as a source of stem cell therapy for hair re-growth assisted by inflammatory action of the fat itself in a female patient. The patient underwent adipose transplantation in April and September 2017. Read More

Autoimmune progesterone dermatitis (APD) is rare autoimmune response to endogenous progesterone or to earlier exposure to exogenous progesterone (1). Skin lesions typically occur due to increases in progesterone during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle (2). A-31-year-old mother of two children presented to our Department with a 5-year history of pruritic and painful erythematosus macules, papules, and patches on her neck, pectoral region, and face, which appeared 2-3 days before the onset of menses and gradually resolved 7-10 days later (Figure 1).

We have read with great interest the case report recently published in Acta Dermatovenerologica Croatica by Boer and Mihajlovic (1), which describes a 33-year-old woman with an 18-year history of classic hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) who developed HS-like lesions at the position of the bra strap. We agree with Boer and Mihajlovic: according to our clinical experience, we are convinced that mechanical stress may contribute or, in some cases, result in the development of HS. In this regard, we will describe the case of a patient with a monster hernia who presented HS-like lesions on his abdomen corresponding to the perihernial skin area, suggesting that mechanical stress was an important pathogenic factor for HS development.

Papulopustular rosacea and demodicosis are characterized by non-specific symptoms, which can make clinical diagnosis difficult. This retrospective study of 844 patients assessed the diagnostic importance of clinical signs and symptoms that are poorly recognized as being associated with these conditions. In addition to well-known signs (vascular signs (present in 80% of patients), papules (39%), pustules (22%) and ocular involvement (21%)), other signs and symptoms (discreet follicular scales (93%), scalp symptoms (pruritus, dandruff or folliculitis; 38%) and pruritus (15%)) may also suggest a diagnosis not only of demodicosis, but also of papulopustular rosacea.
