1/7. pyoderma gangrenosum involving the foot. A case report.

    pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare and destructive inflammatory skin disease. The authors present a report of a patient with a classic case of pyoderma gangrenosum involving the foot. The diagnosis was made on the basis of clinical presentation and progression of the disease after differential diagnoses of common conditions were excluded. A brief overview of the disease process, its treatment, and its correlation with ulcerative colitis is provided.

2/7. Atypical varicella with palm and sole involvement.

    Varicella is a common disease characterized by a typical presentation. We report a case of an atypical presentation of varicella with a centrifugal distribution, eruption with many vesicles, no pustular stage in evolution and distal involvement. There were none of the known modifying factors (immunosuppression, skin disease, injury or sun exposure). To explain the distal involvement we suggest intraepidermic lesions caused by a pre-existing B1 coxsackie infection.

4/7. Barber's hair sinus in a female hairdresser: uncommon manifestation of an occupational dermatosis.

    Hairdressers are prone to developing occupational skin diseases, particularly hand eczema of different origins. Rather uncommon, however, is the so-called barber's hair sinus that is caused by hair fragments penetrating the skin preferably in the interdigital spaces of their hands. Whereas, to date, the disease has almost exclusively been reported to occur on the hands of male hairdressers, we herein present the first case of a female hairdresser who developed a barber's hair sinus on one of her feet.

5/7. Treatment of pyoderma gangrenosum with cultured keratinocyte autografts.

    BACKGROUND. pyoderma gangrenosum is an uncommon chronic skin disease characterized by rapidly enlarging cutaneous ulcers. immunosuppressive agents, such as corticosteroids, are the mainstay of therapy. OBJECTIVE. We describe a patient with pyoderma gangrenosum treated with cultured keratinocyte autografts for a full-thickness ulcer located on the dorsal and lateral aspects of the foot. methods. After stabilizing the ulcer with intralesional and systemic corticosteroids, the ulcer was debrided and cultured keratinocyte autografts were secured with nylon mesh. An outer dressing of gauze and elastic bandage was used. RESULTS. The patient had > 95% "take" of the grafts and the ulcer was fully healed in less than 1 month. The grafted area preserved the clinical phenotype of the palmar skin from which the original biopsy was taken. CONCLUSION. Cultured keratinocyte autografts can provide permanent wound coverage for patients on high doses of immunosuppressive medications.

6/7. Primary tuberculosis of the nasopharynx with erythema induratum of Bazin.

    A 44-year-old Japanese woman with primary tuberculosis of the nasopharynx associated with erythema induratum of Bazin (EI) is reported. The patient presented with erythematous nodules of the lower legs diagnosed as EI. Since EI is a tuberculosis-related skin disease, the presence of latent tuberculous lesions was investigated, and a tuberculous lesion was found in the nasopharynx. Primary tuberculosis of the nasopharynx is very rare. Furthermore, our review of the literature revealed no case in which nasopharyngeal tuberculosis acted as the latent focus of EI.

7/7. dermatitis of the feet.

    Most rashes that occur on the feet are due to eczema, infections, or shoe dermatitis. But which are which? Fortunately, distinguishing among these common skin diseases requires just a little basic knowledge of dermatology and familiarity with two simple diagnostic tests. Two case reports illustrate the authors' approach to diagnosis, treatment, and patient education.
