1/4. Vesicular carcinoma erysipelatodes.

    carcinoma erysipelatodes, also known as inflammatory metastatic carcinoma, is a type of cutaneous metastatic disease. We describe a 64-year-old woman with metastatic breast carcinoma who presented with a blistering erythematous eruption resembling erysipelas with formation of vesicles and bullae. She was found to have carcinoma erysipelatodes with a formation of vesicles and bullae.

2/4. Recurrent hemolysis-associated pseudoerysipelas of the lower legs in a patient with congenital spherocytosis.

    A 29-year-old patient presented with recurrent erythematous eruptions on both lower legs of 15 years' duration. family history, along with clinical and laboratory examinations, revealed congenital hereditary spherocytosis and excluded other reasons for the erythematous eruptions of the lower legs. During two subsequent episodes, we detected increased hemolysis that disappeared concomittantly on spontanous resolution of the lesions. To our knowledge, this case is the first report showing a recurrent erythematous eruption on the lower legs in a patient with congenital hereditary spherocytosis. These eruptions might be caused by intermittent hemolysis-induced inflammation as a result of the increased osmotic fragility of the erythrocytes and may evolve to chronic leg ulcers later in life.

4/4. Atypical erysipelas caused by group G streptococci in a patient with cured Hodgkin's disease.

    erysipelas developed in a young woman whose condition had been in remission for ten years after treatment of stage IIIA Hodgkin's disease. The erysipelas was atypical both in its clinical manifestation and its causative organism. The patient had an erythematous, macular eruption on both buttocks and thighs. Group G streptococci, a rare cause of erysipelas, were isolated from both blood cultures and a skin biopsy specimen. The unusual clinical manifestation of the disease when the patient was initially seen may have been the result of a group G streptococcal bacteremia, coupled with impairment of the lymphatic drainage of the involved area from a partial thoracic duct obstruction and a restrictive cardiomyopathy, both secondary to previous irradiation treatment.
