1/6. Multifocal subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis caused by phialophora verrucosa.

    An otherwise healthy 85-year-old woman presented with purulent multifocal subcutaneous nodules on the dorsal side of the right forearm and hand. Histopathologic examination of the biopsied specimen showed a subcutaneous granuloma with central abscess and necrosis, consistent with phaeomycotic cyst. Faint brown septate hyphae and moniliform fungal elements were found in the granuloma. culture of the discharge grew phialophora verrucosa. This fungus has rarely been reported as a pathogen of subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis. Subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis usually presents as a single lesion. In this case of multifocal lesions, initial imperfect excision seems to have caused satellite lesions. To our knowledge, this is the first report of multifocal subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis caused by P verrucosa. The disease responded to oral itraconazole administration.

2/6. Idiopathic granulomatous gastritis with multiple aphthoid ulcers.

    A 47-year-old woman had idiopathic granulomatous gastritis characterized by serpiginous aphthoid ulcer with satellite aphthous ulcers at the antrum to angulus with noncaseating epithelioid granulomas including giant cells in the gastric mucosa. No definite etiologic factors could be detected; systemic sarcoidosis, Crohn's disease, infections (tuberculosis, syphilis and fungus), neoplasm, and foreign body reaction were excluded by additional investigations. However, the patient was found to be infected with H. pylori. Despite the success of H. pylori-eradication, the granulomatous lesion took a long time to heal for at least 17 months or more. The relation between granulomatous gastritis and H. pylori was discussed. There was no apparent evidence of granuloma in the other organs during clinical and follow-up studies for over three years.

3/6. Recurrent pyogenic granuloma with satellitosis.

    The development of recurrent pyogenic granulomas as multiple satellite lesions is rare and often associated with trauma or treatment of the primary lesion. At least 34 cases of such lesions after various treatment modalities have been reported, but none occurred in conjunction with laser therapy. We report a case of recurrent pyogenic granuloma with satellite lesions that developed after carbon-dioxide laser excision of a previously recurrent lesion.

4/6. Pyogenic granuloma recurrent with satellite lesions.

    Pyogenic granuloma recurrent with satellite lesions is an uncommon clinical entity. The condition occurs most often on the back of young individuals and runs a benign course. A case is presented and the literature is reviewed.

5/6. Multiple disseminated pyogenic granuloma.

    A 15-month-old baby girl with extensive skin burns developed within the burned areas multiple lesions with the clinical and histological characteristics of granuloma pyogenicum. These lesions seem to differ from those reported by others as pyogenic granuloma with multiple satellites.

6/6. Recurrent multiple pyogenic granuloma with multiple satellites. Features of Masson's hemangioma.

    The case of a thirteen year old white girl who had multiple recurrences of pyogenic granuloma arranged in a satellite fashion is presented. The incidence and frequency of pyogenic granuloma with or without recurrences is discussed, stressing the unusual nature of the present problem. In addition to the microscopic features of pyogenic granuloma, the changes seen in Masson's hemangioma were demonstrable in some of the sections. The microscopic distinguishing feature of Masson's hemangioma is discussed, with emphasis on the importance of recognizing this as a benign structure rather than a malignant one. Opinions concerning the etiology of pyogenic granuloma as well as the reasons for the development of multiple satellites are presented, along with suggestions for therapy.
