Service de Dermatologie et Vénérologie, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Ibn Sina, Faculté de Médecine et de Pharmacie, Université Mohammed V, Rabat, Maroc.

Prickly heat is a benign cutaneous manifestation due to the obstruction of the sweat ducts following excessive exposure to heat, humidity or hyperthermia. We report the case of a 70-year old diabetic female patient treated with insulin, hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit due to acidocetosic coma secondary to pyelonephritis. The patient had diffuse clear vesicular lesions spread all over the body,(a) firm to palpation, on a healthy skin, suggesting miliaria crystallina. Read More

Fox-Fordyce disease: report of two cases with perifollicular xanthomatosis on histological image.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Jul-Aug;93(4):562-565

Clínica Dermatológica Valdés - León, Guanajuato, Mexico.

Fox-Fordyce disease is a relatively infrequent pathology of the apocrine glands that affects almost exclusively young women. The disease is characterized by the presence of pruritic follicular papules mainly in the armpits that respond poorly to treatment and severely affect the patient's quality of life. We report two cases with clinical diagnosis and histopathological confirmation, presenting perifollicular xanthomatosis on histological examination, recently described as a distinctive, consistent, and specific feature of this disease.

Neutrophilic superficial eccrine ductitis: Proposal of a new disease concept.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Mar 5;35(2):e105-e109. Epub 2018 Jan 5.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Internal Related, Graduate School of Medicine, Kobe University, Kobe, Japan.

A 3-year-old Japanese boy presented with a 3-month history of itchy erythematous papules on his trunk and forearms, the histologic findings of which were characterized by predominantly neutrophilic inflammation within and around the eccrine sweat ducts and obliteration and disruption of the superficial eccrine sweat ducts. Although the skin disorder had some clinical and histopathologic similarity to miliaria and neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis, it was ultimately conformed to be neither disorder. Based on this and a case report in the Japanese literature of a 1-year-old boy with erythematous eruptions whose clinical and histopathologic findings were similar to those in our case, we propose the skin disorder in our case, referred to as "neutrophilic superficial eccrine ductitis," as a unique entity.

Department of Dermatology, Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island; Department of Dermatology, Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, Rhode Island.

A switch from cell-mediated to humoral immunity (helper T 1 [Th1] to helper T 2 [Th2] shift) during gestation plays a key role in placental immune tolerance. As a result, skin diseases that are Th2 mediated often worsen, whereas skin diseases that are Th1 mediated often improve during gestation. Also, due to fluctuations in glandular activity, skin diseases involving sebaceous and eccrine glands may flare, whereas those involving apocrine glands may improve during pregnancy. Read More

Benign skin disease with pustules in the newborn.

An Bras Dermatol 2016 Apr;91(2):124-34

Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil.

The neonatal period comprises the first four weeks of life. It is a period of adaptation where the skin often presents several changes: transient lesions, resulting from a physiological response, others as a consequence of transient diseases and some as markers of severe disorders. The presence of pustules in the skin of the newborn is always a reason for the family and for the assisting doctor to be worried, since the newborn is especially vulnerable to bacterial, viral or fungal infection.

The Infectious and Noninfectious Dermatological Consequences of Flooding: A Field Manual for the Responding Provider.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2015 Oct;16(5):399-424

Dermatology Division, Children's National Medical Center, Washington, DC, USA.

Meteorological data show that disastrous floods are increasingly frequent and more severe in recent years, perhaps due to climatic changes such as global warming. During and after a flood disaster, traumatic injuries, communicable diseases, chemical exposures, malnutrition, decreased access to care, and even mental health disorders dramatically increase, and many of these have dermatological manifestations. Numerous case reports document typical and atypical cutaneous infections, percutaneous trauma, immersion injuries, noninfectious contact exposures, exposure to wildlife, and exacerbation of underlying skin diseases after such disasters as the 2004 Asian tsunami, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the 2010 Pakistan floods.

Neonatal pustular eruption is a group of disorders characterized by various forms of pustulosis seen in first 4 weeks of life. Its presentation is often similar with some subtle differences, which can be further established by few simple laboratory aids, to arrive at a definite diagnosis. Given their ubiquitous presentation, it is sometimes difficult to differentiate among self-limiting, noninfectious, pustular dermatosis such as erythema toxicum neonatorum, transient neonatal pustular melanosis, miliaria pustulosa, etc. Read More
