    Disorders characterized by predominant or exclusive dermal inflammation.
    Semin Diagn Pathol 2016 Dec 14. Epub 2016 Dec 14.
    Section of Dermatopathology, Division of Surgical Pathology & Cytopathology, University of Virginia Medical Center, Room 3020 University of Virginia Hospital, 1215 Lee Street, Charlottesville, VA 22908-0214, USA. Electronic address:
    Some cutaneous inflammatory disorders are typified by a predominant or exclusive localization in the dermis. They can be further subdivided by the principal cell types into lymphocytic, neutrophilic, and eosinophilic infiltrates, and mixtures of them are also seen in a proportion of cases. This review considers such conditions. Read More

    *Department of Pathology, Albany Medical College, Albany, NY; and †Departamento de Dermatología, Area de Dermatopatología, Hospital Luis Vernaza, Guayaquil, Ecuador.
    One of the pathogenic causes of cutaneous inflammatory pseudotumors is chronic localized fibrosing leukocytoclastic vasculitis (CLFLCV), a vasculitic reaction pattern seen in granuloma faciale (GF), a localized vasculitis, and erythema elevatum diutinum (EED), a generalized vasculitis. Patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDSs) are at risk for a diverse spectrum of cutaneous neutrophilic dermatoses such as EED. Herein, we report a 74-year-old man who presented with a large ulcerative, fungating tumor affecting the right flexor ankle caused by CLFLCV. Read More

The surgeon should be able to question the diagnosis of BCC when nodular lesions are untypical, keeping in mind that some differential diagnoses require only medical treatment. Read More

    Approach to cutaneous vasculitides with special emphasis on small vessel vasculitis: histopathology and direct immunofluorescence.
    Curr Opin Rheumatol 2017 Jan;29(1):39-44
    Department of Pathology, Acıbadem University, Istanbul, Turkey.
    Purpose Of Review: The present review will focus on recent publications in cutaneous vasculitides.

    Recent Findings: Some histopathological and clinical features, such as papillary dermal edema, perivascular C3 deposition, clinically evident edema, and lesions above the waist, may point out renal or gastrointestinal involvement in Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP). HSP associated with familial Mediterranean fever differs from typical isolated HSP by showing no deposits of IgA, much younger age, and location of the lesions on the face or the trunk. Read More

    Central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) is a benign tumor that may be subdivided in a non-aggressive form and an aggressive form. In aggressive forms, tumor size and high recurrence risk need large surgical resections. In order to minimize surgical morbidity, especially in children, medical treatments acting on the tumor proliferation are currently being assessed: steroids (triamcinolone), anti-osteoclastic drugs (calcitonine, alendronate, denosumab), anti-angiogenic drugs (interferon α).

    Departments of *Pathology †Dermatology, Medical Sciences School, State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil ‡Department of Dermatology, Ealing Hospital, London, UK.
    Background: Eosinophilic angiocentric fibrosis (EAF) and granuloma faciale (GF) share several histopathologic features, including eosinophil-rich inflammation, microangiitis, and progressive fibrosis. Concurrent presentation of EAF and GF suggests a pathogenetic link between them.

    Objectives: To identify histologic findings that tell them apart and construe the pathogenetic mechanisms behind each morphologic variable, 14 immunohistochemical markers were used to study the cells subpopulations in 14 cases of GF and 3 cases of EAF. Read More

    Cherubism is a rare genetic disorder characterized by extensive growth of a bilateral granuloma of the jaws, resulting in facial disfigurement. Cherubism is caused by gain-of-function mutations in the SH3BP2 gene, leading to overactivation of nuclear factor of activated T cells, cytoplasmic 1 (NFATc1)-dependent osteoclastogenesis. Recent findings in human and mouse cherubism have suggested that calcineurin inhibitors might be drug candidates in cherubism medical treatment. Read More
