11/12. Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma associated with granulomatous slack skin.

    Granulomatous slack skin disease (GSS) is a rare disorder characterized by bulky cutaneous lesions and epithelioid and giant cell granulomas with destruction of the dermal elastic tissue. We detail the observation of a 29-year-old man with clinical and histological features of GSS. Pendulous skin tumors were associated with typical clinical and immunohistochemical aspects of mycosis fungoides and with clonal rearrangement of the V gamma T-cell receptor gene in lesional skin. This case report supports cutaneous T-cell lymphoma as a cause of GSS.

12/12. granuloma faciale: an ultrastructural study.

    granuloma faciale is an uncommon process that can easily be confused with other skin diseases. To avoid incorrect treatment, correct diagnosis is of primary importance. A diagnosis of granuloma faciale can be made by a microscopic study of the dense granulomatous infiltrate in the reticular dermis with abundant polynuclear eosinophils and by an ultrastructural study of the eosinophils, which show characteristic alterations in their cytoplasmatic granules. The absence of Langerhans granules differentiates granuloma faciale from histiocytosis X.
