Indian J Dermatol 2022 Jan-Feb;67(1):93

Department of Dermatology, Bhojani Clinic, Babasaheb Ambedkar Road, Matunga, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

A novel observation of chronic eczema developing over the skin of adequately treated lesions of tinea cruris/tinea corporis in six atopic individuals is being shared. We propose that the skin of atopic individuals affected by dermatophytosis be observed for secondary changes even after the complete resolution of the lesions. The use of bland emollients with topical antifungal agents should be encouraged in atopic patients. Read More

Department of Emergency, the First Affiliated Hospital, College of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.

Autoimmune polyglandular syndrome (APS) is a rare disease that is characterized by autoimmune reactions to multiple endocrine and non-endocrine organs, which can be divided into four main types. The principal manifestations of APS-3 are autoimmune thyroid disease and other autoimmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes, atrophic gastritis, pernicious anemia, vitiligo, alopecia, and myasthenia gravis, but not Addison's disease or hypoparathyroidism. Here we report a case demonstrating the rare coexistence of growth hormone deficiency and hyperthyroidism with sexual dysgenesis, secondary amenorrhea, cardiomegaly, splenomegaly, hypoproteinemia, pleural effusion, seroperitoneum, pericardial effusion, anasarca, osteoporosis, vitamin D deficiency, iron-deficiency anemia, poor blood coagulation, leucocytopenia, peripheral neuropathy, hyperuricemia, ichthyosis, tinea cruris, and onychomycosis.
