Collision of Subungual Neurofibroma and Onychomatricoma: S100 Positivity as a Clue.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Centro Médico Voth, Madrid, Spain.

We present a 41-year-old man with a hemionychodystrophy of the first toe, appearing as a longitudinal thickening of the nail plate, overcurved and with holes in its thickened free margin, thus leading to the clinical diagnosis of onychomatricoma. Complete excision showed typical nail plate of onychomatricoma and, underlying it, curvy disorganized neural-looking fascicles without atypia and with diffuse positivity for S100, interpreted as subungual neurofibroma (NF). Subungual NF is a very rare tumor, with only 12 previous cases reported. Read More

Intraoral Cutaneous Hamartomas-Clinicopathologic and Immunohistochemical Characteristics of 3 Cases.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, School of Dentistry, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN.

Intraoral cutaneous hamartomas (ICHs) are uncommon mucosal lesions characterized microscopically by a combination of cutaneous structures, including various stages of follicular and sebaceous elements. Due to their rarity, the clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical attributes of ICHs have not been thoroughly delineated. Three cases of ICH were identified from our records, and formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections were immunohistochemically stained with antibodies against androgen receptor, estrogen receptor, and progesterone receptor, p63, factor XIIIα, and CD34.

A Reactive Peripheral Gamma-Delta T-cell Lymphoid Proliferation After a Tick Bite.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Pathology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA.

Peripheral gamma-delta T-cell proliferations are encountered in reaction to certain infections and in primary malignancies. Identifying sources of benign reactions is key in avoiding unnecessary workup and surveillance of these aggressive malignancies. Borrelia infections have been implicated in a number of lymphoproliferative disorders, but rarely, if ever, in this setting. Read More

Cutaneous Elastic Tissue Anomalies.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Feb;41(2):85-117

Department of Dermatology, Fundación Jiménez Díaz, Universidad Autónoma, Madrid, Spain.

After a review of the physiology in the formation and degradation of cutaneous elastic tissue, we describe the clinicopathologic disorders characterized by increased and decreased cutaneous elastic tissue. Cutaneous disorders characterized by increased and/or abnormal elastic tissue in the dermis include elastoma, also named nevus elasticus, dermatosis lenticularis disseminata, pseudoxanthoma elasticum, late-onset focal dermal elastosis, linear focal elastosis, elastoderma, elastofibroma dorsi, and elastosis perforans serpiginosa. In some of these conditions, the specific histopathologic diagnosis may be rendered with hematoxylin-eosin stain, whereas in other ones special elastic tissue stains are necessary to demonstrate the anomalies.

Hailey-Hailey-Like Pattern of Acantholysis on the Scalp Should Raise the Possibility of Incipient Pemphigus Vulgaris.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Ackerman Academy of Dermatopathology, New York, NY.

Hailey-Hailey disease (familial benign chronic pemphigus) is a genodermatosis with a typical clinical presentation of macerated plaques involving intertriginous areas of the body and affects multiple family members. Epidermal acanthosis, incipient, and completed acantholysis of many of the spinous keratinocytes of the epidermis and foci of dyskeratosis are well-recognized histologic findings. We have observed solitary lesions on the "scalp" of patients having a Hailey-Hailey-like pattern, and not the suprabasilar clefting of pemphigus represents the first manifestation of pemphigus vulgaris, which was confirmed with direct immunofluorescence in all our patients.

Reflectance Confocal Microscopy Features of Plaque Psoriasis Overlap With Horizontal Histopathological Sections: A Case Series.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Dermatology Clinic, University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) displays horizontal, en face tissue sections of the epidermis and upper dermis, and interpretation of its features is classically based on the comparison with vertical conventional histopathological sections that, as known, do not reflect the same plane of observation. In 10 patients affected by psoriasis, we correlated RCM images with horizontal histopathological sections from skin biopsies, observing in all cases marked overlaps between the 2 techniques. Although vertical section examination remains the gold standard for the diagnosis of psoriasis, this novel comparative approach may contribute to a more precise definition of RCM findings and could represent the drive for further research as well as an innovative tool for educational purposes.

Dermatopathology Group, Department of Anatomical Pathology, PathWest Laboratory Medicine, Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

Flagellate erythema is a distinctive eruption characterized by "whip-like" linear or curvilinear streaks and plaques, occurring mainly on the trunk. It has classically been described in 2 disparate clinical settings: chemotherapy with bleomycin and ingestion of mushrooms (most commonly Shiitake mushrooms). Most of the literature comprises single case reports, often with minimal histological description of rather nonspecific features. Read More

High-Risk Human Papillomavirus E6/E7 mRNA Is Rarely Detected in Nonanogenital Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma: An RNA In Situ Hybridization-Based Tissue Microarray Study.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Departments of Diagnostic Pathology, and.

High-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) is known to play an oncogenic role in squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) at certain anatomical sites, namely the uterine cervix, oropharynx, and anogenital skin. However, the association between HR-HPV and nonanogenital cutaneous SCC (CSCC) remains controversial. In this study, we addressed this controversy by performing HR-HPV E6/E7 mRNA in situ hybridization (ISH) on 243 CSCC samples. Read More

Dickkopf-1 Expression in Androgenetic Alopecia and Alopecia Areata in Male Patients.

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Feb;41(2):122-127

Dermatology and Venereology and.

Background: Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) results from shortening of the anagen phase of the hair cycle and, subsequently, miniaturization of hair follicles. Alopecia areata (AA) is a disease of autoimmunity where T cells attack anagen hair follicles and shows multifactorial etiology. Dickkopf-1 (DKK-1) is a gene that is responsible for transformation of anagen to catagen, which suggests that it is involved in development of both diseases. Read More

Superficial and Deep Cutaneous Involvement by RAS-Associated Autoimmunne Leukoproliferative Disease (RALD Cutis): A Histologic Mimicker of Histiocytoid Sweet Syndrome.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Dec 26. Epub 2018 Dec 26.

Department of Pathology, Florida Hospital Orlando, Orlando, FL.

RAS-associated autoimmune leukoproliferative disease (RALD) is a recently described noninfectious and nonmalignant clinical syndrome characterized by autoimmune disorders, massive splenomegaly, modest lymphadenopathy, and monocytosis. On the molecular level, RALD is defined by somatic mutations of either NRAS or KRAS gene in a subset of hematopoietic cells. To date, there is a dearth of well-documented histopathologic description of cutaneous involvement by RALD in the literature. Read More

Localized Lichen Myxedematosus With Plasma Cell Light Chain Restriction. Is It the Exception or the Rule?

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Dec 20. Epub 2018 Dec 20.

Global Pathology Laboratory, Aurora Diagnostics, Miami Lakes, FL.

Lichen myxedematosus is a chronic cutaneous mucinosis that can present on a spectrum from localized cutaneous lesions to systemic disease of scleromyxedema. The clinical presentation of localized cutaneous lichen myxedematosus is waxy lichenoid papules, nodules, and/or plaques that have histopathologic findings of mucin deposition and a variable degree of fibroblast proliferation. There is an absence of serum paraproteins, and there are no other systemic causes of cutaneous mucinosis such as thyroid disease. Read More

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Dec 19. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Department of Dermatology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, FL.

Background: Tumoral melanosis (TM) is a histologic diagnosis characterized by abundant pigment-laden macrophages in the dermis. It is generally thought to represent a regressed melanoma, although it has also been reported after benign pigmented lesions as well. Determining the antecedent lesion in cases of TM is of clinical importance to accurately guide therapy and prognostication. Read More

Premature Desquamation of the Inner Root Sheath in Noninflamed Hair Follicles as a Specific Marker for Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Dec 10. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

Dermatology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL.

Background: Premature desquamation of the inner root sheath (PDIRS) is considered one of the distinctive features in central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia (CCCA). However, PDIRS can be seen in other alopecia subtypes, and its utility in the diagnosis of CCCA has been debated. We aimed to examine a large cohort of alopecia cases for the presence of PDIRS in association with and without inflammation to determine whether PDIRS in noninflamed follicles can be used as a specific marker of CCCA.

Dedifferentiated Melanoma With Expression of Cytokeratin and GATA3 in a Patient With History of Breast Carcinoma.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Dec 7. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Department of Pathology, UPMC Shadyside, Pittsburgh, PA.

Melanoma is one of the great mimickers in pathology because it has diverse morphologies and can be mistaken for carcinoma or sarcoma. In most cases, immunochemistry is helpful in supporting the diagnosis and excluding other differentials. However, metastatic melanoma may lose immunohistochemical melanocytic markers and express nonmelanocytic lineage markers, which often poses a diagnostic dilemma and may be misdiagnosed as a poorly differentiated carcinoma or sarcoma.
