Indian J Dermatol 2018 Sep-Oct;63(5):418-423

Department of Dermatology, Dr. D. Y. Patil Medical College and Hospital, DPU, Pune, Maharashtra, India.

Rowell's syndrome (RS) is recognized since 1963 as a presentation of lupus erythematosus (LE) with erythema multiforme-like lesions and characteristic immunological changes. Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) encompasses antibodies to phospholipids/phospholipid-binding cofactor proteins and/or circulating lupus anticoagulant with clinical manifestations of thrombosis such as recurrent spontaneous abortions, etc. A 32-year-old female with primary infertility since marriage (7 years) and sequential appearance, for the past 6 months, of various lupus-specific cutaneous lesions, "targetoid" lesions on palms, musculoskeletal, ocular and auditory (sensorineural hearing loss [SNHL]) complaints with positive serological profile for SMD-1, SS-A/Ro, SS-B/La, U1-snRNP, Ku, antiphospholipid and anticardiolipin antibodies, and histopathologically confirmed LE is presented as a case of concurrent overlap syndrome, RS and APS, primary infertility, and SNHL.

Prospective Intraindividual Comparison of Magnetic Resonance Imaging With Gadoxetic Acid and Extracellular Contrast for Diagnosis of Hepatocellular Carcinomas Using the Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System.

Hepatology 2018 Dec 12;68(6):2254-2266. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Department of Mathematics, Ajou University, Suwon, Republic of Korea.

We intraindividually compared the efficacy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with extracellular contrast agents (ECA-MRI) and MRI with hepatobiliary agents (HBA-MRI) for the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) using the Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (LI-RADS). Between November 2016 and November 2017, we enrolled 91 patients with chronic liver disease who underwent both ECA-MRI and HBA-MRI within a 1-month interval for a first detected hepatic nodule on ultrasound. In total, 117 observations (95 HCCs, 19 benign lesions, and 3 other malignancies; median size, 18 mm) were identified with surgical resection. Read More

We present an extremely rare case of a 53-year-old woman with an intraoral superficial haemosiderotic lymphovascular malformation (SHLM), also known as hobnail haemangioma. SHLM is a rare, benign, vascular tumour first described as targetoid haemosiderotic haemangioma, with only a handful of cases reported to present in the oral cavity. The diagnosis was established following complete surgical excision of the lesion, and after 14 months, there are still no signs of recurrence. Read More

Recognition and timely adequate treatment of erythema multiforme remain a major challenge. In this review, current diagnostic guidelines, potential pitfalls, and modern/novel treatment options are summarized with the aim to help clinicians with diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making. The diagnosis of erythema multiforme, that has an acute, self-limiting course, is based on its typical clinical picture of targetoid erythematous lesions with predominant acral localization as well as histological findings.

Department of Dermatology, Brigham & Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School.

Symmetrical drug-related intertriginous and flexural exanthema (SDRIFE) is a cutaneous drug reaction characterized by erythema over the buttocks, thighs, groin, and flexural regions most commonly associated with the use of beta-lactam antibiotics. Although the exact pathophysiology of this disease remains unknown, it is theorized to be the result of a delayed hypersensitivity response presenting as a cutaneous eruption days to weeks after exposure to the drug. The treatment involves discontinuation of the suspected medication, symptomatic control of pruritus, and topical steroid therapy. Read More

The limitations of dermoscopy: false-positive and false-negative tumours.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2018 Jun 24;32(6):879-888. Epub 2018 Jan 24.

First Department of Dermatology, Aristotle University, Thessaloniki, Greece.

Dermoscopy has been documented to increase the diagnostic accuracy of clinicians evaluating skin tumours, improving their ability to detect skin cancer and better recognize benign moles. However, dermoscopically 'false-positive' and 'false-negative' tumours do exist. False-positive diagnosis usually leads to unnecessary excisions. Read More

Departments of Dermatology and Pathology, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City, Iowa.

Lyme disease classically evolves through clinical manifestations according to the stage of illness. Because many of the systemic symptoms are non-specific, and because serology may yield false negative results, cutaneous findings merit even greater importance to diagnosis. The prototypical skin lesion, erythema migrans (EM), occurs early and is the only independent diagnostic clinical feature according to the guidelines of the Infectious Diseases Society of America.
