    Hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans (Flegel's disease). In situ characterization of T cell subsets and Langerhans' cells.
    Acta Derm Venereol 1988 ;68(4):341-5
    Department of Dermatology, University of Basle, Switzerland.
    We report a patient with hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans (HLP) manifesting as multiple reddish-brown hyperkeratotic papules on the lower extremities. Typical histologic features of HLP include hyperkeratosis, thinning or absence of the granular layer and a band-like infiltrate in the upper dermis underlying an atrophic epidermis. In order to determine the cellular composition of the infiltrate, skin biopsy specimens were studied immunohistochemically using a series of commercially available monoclonal antibodies. Read More

    Lamellar bodies in hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans.
    J Cutan Pathol 1987 Aug;14(4):207-11
    An ultrastructural study of lesional skin from 4 subjects with hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans (Flegel's disease) demonstrated variable numbers of lamellar bodies of normal size and architecture within cells of the stratum granulosum and the upper stratum spinosum. Their characteristic lamellate inclusions were frequently observed within the intercellular spaces. These observations suggest that the lamellar bodies are qualitatively normal in Flegel's disease.

A review of the literature on the ultrastructure of Flegel's disease is made, and the significance of the ultrastructural findings is briefly discussed. Read More

    Langerhans cells in the dermal infiltrate of hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans.
    Int J Dermatol 1986 Dec;25(10):642-5
    Typical papules obtained from a patient with hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans (HLP) were examined by light and electron microscopy. Dense cellular infiltrate, which consisted mainly of mononuclear cells, was observed in the dermis underlying the lesion. Electron microscopic studies revealed that these cells were mostly lymphocytic cells. Read More

    Hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans (Flegel's disease).
    Acta Derm Venereol 1983 ;63(4):357-60
    A 62-year-old female with a 20-year history of small horny papules on the skin of the legs is described. Light microscopy revealed a hyperkeratotic papule with atrophic epidermis and a dense dermal inflammatory cell infiltrate with many cerebriform lymphocytes not earlier described in connection with hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans (HLP). The electron-microscopic picture showed membrane-coating granules (MCG) and keratohyalin located in different cells, indicating that the disorder of keratinization in HLP is possibly caused by reduced co-operation between these cells and that the keratinization process occurs in the absence of MCG.

    Dyskeratotic process of hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans (Flegel). The abnormal formation of cystine-rich protein.
    Dermatologica 1982 Jun;164(6):379-85
    The dyskeratotic changes in the lesions of hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans were examined electron microscopically and histochemically. Under electron microscopy, the formation of keratohyalin granules was reduced and there was a lack of lamellar granule formation. In addition, the catabolic processes were disturbed, and ribosomal and mitochondrial structures remained, and lipid crystal-like structures were seen in the stratum corneum. Read More

    Hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans (Flegel).
    Dermatologica 1980 ;161(5):340-6
    2 patients with typical clinical and histological pictures of hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans were described. Both patients showed abnormalities of the mucosal surface. The ultrastructural findings, both in the cutaneous and in the mucosal lesions, provide strong evidence that the mucosal abnormalities are a real component of hyperkeratosis lenticularis perstans.
