Unidad de Investigación Médica en Inmunoquímica, Hospital de Especialidades, Centro Médico Nacional SXXI, IMSS, Mexico City, México.

The role of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the etiology and pathogenesis of cutaneous tuberculosis is controversial because of the difficulties associated with demonstrating the presence of these mycobacteria in tuberculid cutaneous lesions by routinely available microbiological and histological techniques. In this study, we aimed to demonstrate the presence of M. tuberculosis in cutaneous tuberculosis. Read More

Pan Afr Med J 2018 5;30:95. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

University Mohammed V, Ibn Sina, Hospital University, Rabat, Morocco.

Ecthyma gangrenosum (EG) is a severe potentially lethal cutaneous infection that progresses sequentially from maculopapular rash to haemorrhagic bulla and then to necrotic ulceration with surrounding erythema. It usually occurs in immunocompromised patients (aplasia secondary to chemotherapy, HIV infection, neutropenia or functional deficit of neutrophils, agammaglobulinemia). It rarely affects healthy people. Read More

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Southwest Hospital, Third Military Medical University, Chongqing, China.

Background: China has one of the largest populations with tuberculosis worldwide. Cutaneous tuberculosis (CTB) is a rare manifestation of mycobacterial infection. Although CTB is well described, it is important to periodically revisit the prevailing clinical and epidemiological features in most populated countries such as China, India, and Indonesia, where tuberculosis is still a major health problem.

Background: In the past years the incidence of tuberculosis has dropped significantly in most parts of Europe and the presentation of symptomatic tuberculosis cases have become increasingly rare. With the recent influx of refugees in Europe coming from tuberculosis endemic areas like the Middle East and Africa, it is expected that the incidence of tuberculosis will increase.

Clinico-Histopathological Spectrum of Infectious Granulomatous Dermatoses in Western India- A Representative Study from Mumbai.

J Clin Diagn Res 2016 Apr 1;10(4):EC10-4. Epub 2016 Apr 1.

Assistant Professor, Department of Community Medicine, Dayanand Medical College & Hospital , Ludhiana, Punjab, India .

Introduction: Infectious Granulomatous Dermatoses (IGDS) have various aetiological factors with a considerable overlap in the histopathological and clinical features, thus posing a diagnostic dilemma for dermatologists and pathologists.

Aim: We aimed at determining the histopathological profile of IGDS correlating it with clinical features with an attempt to find the aetiology.

Materials And Methods: In a cross-sectional study conducted in a tertiary referral center of Mumbai over two years, out of 1872 skin biopsies received, 239 histopathologically diagnosed cases of IGDS were studied for histopathological features of granuloma. Read More

Background: Although cutaneous tuberculosis (CTB) is well described, it is wise to periodically revisit the prevailing clinical and epidemiological features, of this somewhat uncommon entity in developed nations that is also usually neglected in national tuberculosis control programs in countries where tuberculosis is a major health problem, to maintain heightened awareness as the HIV pandemic runs its course.

Methods: Medical records of 165 cases of CTB, diagnosed from 2007 to 2010, were studied. The diagnosis in each was made on the basis of well-conceived and described criteria. Read More

Perforating granuloma annulare mimicking papulonecrotic tuberculid.

An Bras Dermatol 2013 Nov-Dec;88(6 Suppl 1):101-4

Universidade Federal de São Paulo, Department of Dermatology, São PauloSP, Brazil.

A case is reported of a patient presenting lymph node tuberculosis and cutaneous lesions resembling papulonecrotic tuberculid, but histologically compatible with perforating granuloma annulare and which responded satisfactorily to antituberculous therapy. This is probably one of the first reports of the association of perforating granuloma annulare and tuberculosis, and it is important therefore to highlight the relevance of this disorder in the differential diagnosis of papulonecrotic tuberculid and to raise the hypothesis that this entity should also be considered to be a variant of tuberculid.

Lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) is a chronic papulonecrotic or papulonodular skin disease, with histological features suggestive of malignant lymphoma. It was originally described by Macauley (1968) as a "self-healing paradoxical eruption, histologically malignant but clinically benign." Unless accompanied by systemic lymphoma, most patients have no constitutional symptoms, and physical findings are limited to the skin. Read More

Simultaneous occurrence of papulonecrotic tuberculid and erythema induratum in a patient with pulmonary tuberculosis.

Department of Dermatology, Pusan National University, School of Medicine, Busan, Korea.

Although papulonecrotic tuberculid is an uncommon cutaneous manifestation of tuberculosis (TB) associated with Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection, the simultaneous occurrence of papulonecrotic tuberculid and erythema induratum is even rarer. Papulonecrotic tuberculid occurs predominantly in young adults and is characterized by eruptions of necrotizing papules that heal with varioliform scars. Histopathologic findings include wedge-shaped necrosis of the dermis, poorly formed granulomatous infiltration, and vasculitis. Read More

Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol 2012 Jan-Feb;78(1):82-4

Department of Dermatology, Seth GS Medical College and King Edward Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, India.

Lymphomatoid papulosis has been classically described as a chronic, recurrent and self-healing papulonecrotic or papulonodular skin eruption, which is clinically benign and histopathologically malignant. The histologic characteristics of lymphomatoid papulosis are suggestive of a cluster of differentiation 30+ (CD30+) malignant lymphoma, and it is best regarded as a low grade cutaneous T cell lymphoma (CTCL). We hereby report a case of granulomatous and eccrinotropic lymphomatoid papulosis in a 40- year-old male. Read More

Extrapulmonary tuberculosis constitutes about 10% of all cases of tuberculosis, and cutaneous tuberculosis makes up only a small proportion of these cases. Despite prevention programs, tuberculosis is still progressing endemically in developing countries. Commonest clinical variant of cutaneous tuberculosis in our study was lupus vulgaris seen in 55% patients followed by scrufuloderma seen in 25% patients followed by orificial tuberculosis, tuberculosis verrucosa cutis, papulonecrotic tuberculid, and erythema induratum seen in 5% each.

The tuberculids are a group of rare cutaneous hypersensitivity reactions that occur in response to a distant focus of mycobacterial infection. Typically, Mantoux testing is strongly reactive, and clinical response to antituberculous treatment is rapid. The papulonecrotic subtype is one such clinical variant, consisting of multiple symmetrical papules, often with central necrosis, distributed preferentially over the trunk and limbs. Read More

Background And Objectives: There are few reports of cutaneous tuberculosis with immunosuppressed states such as HIV, use of immunosuppressants or malignancy. Diagnosis is thus difficult and despite scientific advances such as polymerase chain reaction, it is frequently missed. Although rare, given its worldwide prevalence and the rising incidence of HIV, it is important for clinicians to recognize the variants and promptly treat the patient. Read More

Department of Dermatology, VIMS, Ramakrishna Mission Seva Pratisthan, 99, Sarat Bose Road, Kolkata - 700 026, India.

Tuberculides, the supposedly immunologic reactions to the products of dead Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacilli deposited in the skin from distant foci of tubercular infection, are presently considered to be of two types-papulonecrotic tuberculide and lichen scrofulosorum. Simultaneous occurrence of both the types in the same patient is very rare. We report the case of an adult male without any known internal tubercular focus who showed two types of skin lesions, clinically typical and histopathologically consistent with the diagnoses of papulonecrotic tuberculide and lichen scrofulosorum, occurring simultaneously.

Papulonecrotic tuberculids represent an immunological expression of an internal focus of tuberculosis in an individual with a moderate or high degree of immunity. It responds to anti-tuberculosis treatment and is characterized by an eruption of necrotizing papules occurring in symmetrical crops, particularly affecting the elbows, knees, buttocks and face.
