1/123. Repair of a large "coup de sabre" with soft-tissue expansion and artificial bone graft.

    The authors present a case of a "coup de sabre"--a linear form of scleroderma--in an 18-year-old woman treated by means of an expanded forehead and scalp flap, a hydroxyapatite implant, and an autologous iliac bone graft. Hydroxyapatite was implanted to augment a depressive bony deformity. The nasal deformity was repaired with an expanded forehead flap and an autologous iliac bone graft. This is the first reported case in which a deformity of scleroderma was treated with a combination of an expanded skin flap and a hydroxyapatite implant.

2/123. Nodular fasciitis of the forehead.

    BACKGROUND: Nodular fasciitis is a benign, fibrohistiocytic tumor most commonly arising on the trunk. Histopathologically it can be misdiagnosed as a sarcoma. OBJECTIVE: To describe a case of nodular fasciitis on the forehead and to review the clinical and histologic characteristics of the tumor. methods: Case report and review of the literature. RESULTS: Local excision to completely remove tumor has proven curative at 1 year of follow-up. CONCLUSION: Nodular fasciitis can be encountered on the head and neck and should be regarded as a benign tumor. Either minimal excision or even a "watch and wait" plan can be successful in treating this tumor.

3/123. Photolocalized tinea facialis.

    The case of a 34-year-old white woman with tinea facialis that persisted for nine months prior to diagnosis is presented. The confluent plaquelike erythematous eruption of the face with eyelid lichenification that flared outdoors was thought to represent polymorphic light eruption and was refractory to antibiotics, corticosteroids (topical and systemic), and antimalarials. A KOH preparation was positive when the dermatosis spilled onto the mandibular region, and restaining of the initial skin biopsy revealed fungal hyphae. Complete resolution was accomplished with griseofulvin and MicTin. tinea cab be added to the list of infectious agents that have a photosensitivity component. The fungus possibly "photolocalizes" to sun-damaged areas, ie, areas of increased capillary permeability. This case illustrates the importance of including tinea in considering diagnoses of sun-exposed lesions of the face.

4/123. The hyperkeratotic variant of disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis (DSAP).

    A 78-year-old South Korean man was referred to us from the Medical intensive care Unit (MICU) for an opinion. He was comatose and was on ventilatory care due to aspiration pneumonia. Multiple tiny papules had developed 10 years previously and since then the number and size had been increasing gradually. He had been diabetic for the past 4 years, and had Parkinson's disease diagnosed 1 year previously. Laboratory examinations revealed an elevated level of white blood cells (WBCs) (25,000/microL) and decreased hemoglobin (8.8 g/dL). Other laboratory results were negative or within normal limits. skin examination showed multiple, discrete, crust-like, brownish papules over the erythematous base on the face, upper extremities, and lower extremities. With the clinical impressions of irritated verruca vulgaris, seborrheic keratosis, or cutaneous fungal infection, a skin biopsy was taken from a papule on the left shin, and histopathologic examination revealed several pronounced hyperkeratotic and parakeratotic columns, and characteristic cornoid lamellae in the stratum corneum. Beneath the cornoid lamellae, the granular layer was decreased. A number of round or oval, dyskeratotic, homogenized eosinophilic cells with pyknotic nuclei were scattered in the prickle cell layer below the cornoid lamellae. A mild lymphohistiocytic infiltrate was observed in the papillary dermis and around the blood vessels in the upper dermis. Also, actinic degeneration was present in the upper dermis.

5/123. Treatment of cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia with thalidomide: report of two cases.

    Cutaneous benign lymphoid hyperplasia is a B-cell pseudolymphoma of unknown origin. The most favored sites of involvement include the face. We report two cases involving the nose that showed complete and stable regression after a 2-month treatment course with thalidomide.

6/123. Hyalinizing Spitz nevus.

    A seventeen-year-old Korean girl had a reddish-brown papular lesion on the nose. Histopathologically, it proved to be a "hyalinizing Spitz nevus" with the characteristic features of a discohesive growth pattern of nevus cells and hyalinized stroma. Immunohistochemical stains showed positive reactivity of nevus cells with S-100 protein and vimentin and negative stainings with HMB45, CD68, CEA and low molecular weight cytokeratin. Hyalinizing Spitz nevus may represent a variant in the spectrum of Spitz nevus.

7/123. A cautionary tale. Case report.

    A healthy 26 year old female underwent unsuccessful surgery for an incorrectly diagnosed sebaceous cyst in the cheek. Eventually the problem was traced to a non-vital tooth 24. When the tooth was treated endodontically, the situation resolved in one week.

8/123. Linear eruptions of the nose in childhood: a form of lichen striatus?

    We report four children with linear eruptions on the nose, with overlapping features of lichen striatus and linear cutaneous lupus erythematosus. However, linear lupus erythematosus has rarely been reported, and lichen striatus, although classically linear, rarely affects the face. The linear distribution of lesions from the glabella to the ala nasi may represent distribution following Blaschko's lines.

9/123. A case of anaphylaxis due to ibuprofen.

    A forty-four-year-old Japanese female, who had persistant rhinorrhea, was administered Benza block tablets orally along with two other medicines. Immediately after ingestion, the patient displayed itching of the right upper eyelid, followed by coughing, sneezing, nasal discharge, nasal obstruction, nausea, vomiting, swelling of the face, and dyspnea. She had edema, a wheal extending from the face to the neck, and swelling of the eyelids and lips. Her symptoms subsided after treatment. Her reaction to ibuprofen, which was contained in the Benza Block tablets, was confirmed by a positive reaction to prick testing. From the results of these examinations, our patient was diagnosed as having anaphylaxis due to the ibuprofen in the Benza Block tablets. A review of the literature revealed no previous reports of anaphylaxis due to ibuprofen, although a few cases of ibuprofen urticaria have been reported.

10/123. Milia en plaque: a new site.

    A 35-year-old Kuwaiti field worker presented with a history of an asymptomatic, erythematous plaque on the right side of the nasal bridge. It soon extended to the malar area, being studded with multiple yellowish papules (Fig. 1). He denied any history of photosensitivity, drug intake, local trauma, topical applications, or ionizing radiations to that area. Examination revealed an erythematous, 1.5 x 3 cm plaque on the right nasal fold, extending to the malar area, overlain by a group of tiny yellowish papules (15-20 in number). He also had a few discrete milia on the right cheek. The histology (Fig. 2) revealed multiple keratin-filled cysts, surrounded by a dense lymphocytic infiltrate, findings consistent with milia; 0.05% tretinoin was prescribed twice daily for 1 month without improvement; minocycline, 100 mg daily, was then employed, and at 1 month of follow-up there was a significant decrease in erythema and milia count.
