Department of Dermatology, LN Medical College, Bhopal, IND.

Introduction Skin disorders are a major health problem in the pediatric age group and are associated with significant morbidity. Papulosquamous disorders, forming a major part of the skin diseases in children, present in a variety of clinical pattern. This study is conducted in order to study the hospital-based prevalence of papulosquamous disorders in the pediatric age group (2-14 years) and to determine the morphology and clinical patterns with respect to their age and sex distribution.

Blaschko-linear lichen planus of the face: A retrospective study of 6 cases and a literature review.

Ann Dermatol Venereol 2021 Sep 16. Epub 2021 Sep 16.

Department of Dermatology, Saint-Louis Hospital, University of Paris, AP-HP, 1, avenue Claude-Vellefaux, 75475 Paris cedex 10, France.

Introduction And Methods: Different clinical and histological variants of lichen planus (LP) exist, such as lichen planopilaris, pigmentosus, linear, or atrophic LP. Recently, some cases came to our attention of hyperpigmented and atrophic linear lesions of the face with lichenoid histology, suggesting a combination of these different variants. We carried out a single-center, retrospective descriptive study of 6 similar cases selected from our database and compared them with a literature review. Read More

Adult Blaschkitis With Lichenoid Features and Blood Eosinophilia.

Amal Al-Balbeesi

Cureus 2021 Aug 3;13(8):e16846. Epub 2021 Aug 3.

Dermatology, King Khalid University Hospital, Riyadh, SAU.

There have been many reports of congenital and acquired dermatoses that trail Blaschko lines. Lichen striatus is representative of an acquired cutaneous linear inflammatory dermatosis running along the lines of Blaschko, characterized histopathologically by the predominance of lichenoid infiltration. Adult blaschkitis, however, is considered under the same disease spectrum as lichen striatus and is characterized by a spongiotic reaction pattern. Read More

Adnexotropic Variants of the Interface Dermatitides: A Review.

Dermatopathology (Basel) 2021 May 21;8(2):135-146. Epub 2021 May 21.

Department of Dermatology, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, MA 02118-2415, USA.

The interface dermatitides encompass a vast array of cutaneous entities which, at times, may present with particular clinical variants with adnexal predilection. Similarly, hair follicle and eccrine gland involvement of some of these entities has been observed on histopathology. This review aims to describe the various adnexotropic presentations of the interface dermatitides. Read More

Autoimmunity in Segmental Vitiligo.

Front Immunol 2020 27;11:568447. Epub 2020 Oct 27.

Department of Dermatology, Gent University Hospital, Gent, Belgium.

The autoimmune basis of segmental vitiligo (SV) has only recently been recognized. Systemic autoimmune diseases are less frequently associated compared to non-segmental vitiligo (NSV), but localized skin disorders - in particular linear morphea - have been repeatedly observed in patients with SV. The inflammatory response is documented on a clinical level with cases displaying erythematous borders or a hypochromic stage, on a histopathological level with predominantly CD8 lymphocytes migrating toward the basal layer and by flow cytometry demonstrating the antimelanocyte specificity of these cytotoxic T cells.

Blaschkolinear Acquired Inflammatory Skin Eruption (BLAISE): Case Report of a Young Man Whose Dermatosis had Features of Lichen Striatus and Blaschkitis.

Cureus 2020 Oct 3;12(10):e10785. Epub 2020 Oct 3.

Dermatology, San Diego Family Dermatology, National City, USA.

Cutaneous conditions can follow Blaschko's lines on the skin, which are thought to reflect patterns of cell migration and clonal expansion during embryonic development of the epidermis. These diseases are hypothesized to be caused by genetic mosaicism resulting from processes such as lyonization or somatic postzygotic mutation. Lichen striatus and blaschkitis are two such acquired inflammatory skin disorders that are distinguished in the literature by age of onset, location, and histopathological features. Read More

Nail lichen striatus: Is dermoscopy useful for the diagnosis?

Pediatr Dermatol 2019 Nov 30;36(6):859-863. Epub 2019 Jul 30.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Experimental, Diagnostic and Specialty Medicine, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

Background/objectives: Lichen striatus is a unilateral inflammatory dermatosis that rarely affects the nail unit. When the inflammation involves the nail unit, classic lichenoid nail changes are easily detectable, more often limited to only one portion of the nail. Usually the nail dystrophy coexists with periungual skin papules following Blaschko's lines, but it could also be an isolated feature. Read More

Syringotropic Lichen Planus: A Potential Histopathologic Mimicker of Syringotropic Mycosis Fungoides.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 May;41(5):e50-e53

Research Unit Dermatopathology, Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Graz, Graz, Austria.

Perieccrine inflammation may be observed in several different dermatoses, but true permeation of the secretory coil by lymphocytes (lymphocytic syringotropism) is a rather uncommon finding, usually observed in mycosis fungoides (MF-syringotropic MF). Rare cases of syringotropic lichen striatus and lymphocytic autoimmune hidradenitis showing a similar pattern have been described as well. We describe an exceptional case of lichen planus (LP) characterized by marked lymphocytic syringotropism with focal hyperplasia of the eccrine epithelium. Read More
