11/18. association of oral cysticercosis and post kala azar dermal leishmaniasis.

    Oral cysticercosis affecting the tongue in association with post kala azar dermal leishmaniasis in an adult man is presented. The features that helped to distinguish oral cysticercosis from other conditions endemic in that area are briefly discussed.

12/18. Localized cicatricial pemphigoid (Brunsting-Perry): electron microscopic study.

    Electron microscopic findings are presented in a patient with localized cicatricial pemphigoid (Brunsting-Perry). These findings revealed subepidermal separation below the basal lamina. The basal lamina and anchoring fibrils were well preserved and attached to the intact epidermis to form the roof of the blister. These findings support the concept that localized cicatricial pemphigoid, cicatricial pemphigoid, and disseminated cicatricial pemphigoid are closely related diseases and may explain the occurrence of scar formation in localized cicatricial pemphigoid. A review of 42 cases reported in the world literature is included, with emphasis on clinical, histologic, and immunofluorescence microscopic findings.

13/18. Recurrent cutaneous leishmaniasis: successful treatment with sodium antimony gluconate.

    The case of a 15-year-old boy with recurrent cutaneous leishmaniasis is reported. Species identification was based on results of serotyping and isoenzyme analysis. The patient did not respond to rifampin combined with isoniazid or to ketoconazole. Subsequent therapy with systemic sodium antimony gluconate resulted in complete regression of the lesions.

14/18. Metastatic Crohn's disease.

    Cutaneous granuloma formation distant from the gastrointestinal tract in patients with Crohn's disease of the bowel has been called metastatic Crohn's disease. We report two patients with this entity, including the first to present with an erysipelas-like eruption of the face. A review of the world's literature reveals that all patients with metastatic Crohn's disease have had gastrointestinal disease involving the colon or rectum. Clinical features of the nine previously reported cases are reviewed.

15/18. Rhinophycomycosis entomophthorae.

    Rhinophycomycosis entomophthorae is a variant type of subcutaneous phycomycosis of the face that is caused by entomophthora coronata. The case we describe was the first patient reported in the world literature, to our knowledge. His infection reappeared after an extended dormant period. Although his condition exhibited an early partial response to surgical and medical management, the condition became refractory to treatment.

16/18. leishmaniasis presenting as a dermatomyositis-like eruption in AIDS.

    Three patients are described with leishmaniasis and AIDS, with cutaneous lesions mimicking dermatomyositis. Leishmania organisms were observed in great numbers in the dermis of lesional skin biopsy specimens. They were also present inside keratinocytes in all layers of the epidermis in one patient. skin cultures from all patients and bone marrow culture in patients 1 and 3 revealed leishmania infantum. Leishmania organisms were also found in nonlesional skin. The absence of proximal symmetric muscle weakness, elevated muscle enzymes, myopathic electromyograms, or characteristic histopathologic and immunologic features of dermatomyositis, and the rapid and complete clearance or marked improvement of the cutaneous lesions after treatment for leishmaniasis, make us consider true dermatomyositis unlikely. We suggest that leishmaniasis be included in the list of diseases capable of inducing a dermatomyositis-like eruption.

17/18. Induction of delayed-type sensitivity to Leishmania parasite in a case of leishmaniasis cutanea diffusa with BCG and cord-factor (trehalose-6-6' dimycolate).

    The delayed hypersensitivity against the leishmania parasite was restored to a patient who had suffered from diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis (DCL) for 26 years, by the application of an ointment containing heat-killed and lyophilized BCG and cord-factor (trehalose-6-6'-dimycolate) after stripping the affected and adjacent areas with scotch-tape.

18/18. Treatment of leishmaniasis recidivens with intralesional injections of emetine hydrochloride: a case report.

    A patient, suffering for 42 years from the late tuberculoid-type of leishmaniasis located in his face, was successfully treated with intralesional injections of emetine hydrochloride. Previous treatments, which included intralesional injections of steroids and concomitant intramuscular injections of antimonials, flagyl, fluorocytosine, infusions of amphotericin b--with and without concomitant treatment by steroids systemically and/or intralesionally--and amphotericin b intralesionally, were altogether ineffective. In addition, the patient underwent five operations in a plastic surgery department.
