Reactive granulomatous dermatitis associated with ovarian cancer and a review of its role as a harbinger for malignancy.

Dermatol Online J 2021 Dec 15;27(12). Epub 2021 Dec 15.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Reactive granulomatous dermatitis (RGD) is a rare dermatosis with a variety of cutaneous manifestations unified by a dermal granulomatous infiltrate on histology. Rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune disease are classic associations, but an increasing number of cases have been attributed to covert malignancy. Only 41 cases of paraneoplastic RGD have been documented to our knowledge and we present an additional case that manifested eight months prior to the diagnosis of ovarian cancer and clinically mimicked morphea.

Parry Romberg disease with En Coup de Sabre Scleroderma: Effect of tocilizumab on periodontal bone inflammation.

J Scleroderma Relat Disord 2021 Jun 25;6(2):206-210. Epub 2020 Nov 25.

Pediatric Dermatology Division of the Department of Pediatrics, Federal University of Paraná, Curitiba, Brazil.

Parry Romberg disease and En Coupe de Sabre Scleroderma are frequently associated disorders that affect the face and can cause severe aesthetic and functional impairment. Systemic immunosuppression is the gold standard of first-line treatment in the pediatric rheumatology standpoint although it is often delayed in the pediatric dermatology clinics and more often used in cases of refractory neurological impairment. We report on a case with dental root resorption and severe periodontal bone inflammation detected on magnetic resonance imaging, which was successfully treated with the anti-IL-6 agent tocilizumab.
