1/44. A case report of neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis in a patient receiving chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukaemia.

    Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis (NEH) is a neutrophilic dermatosis primarily affecting the eccrine glands and occurs in patients undergoing chemotherapy. It must be distinguished from infections, drug eruptions, leukaemia cutis or other forms of skin diseases. As it is self-limiting, establishing the diagnosis will avoid unnecessary treatment for infections or changes in drug therapy.

2/44. Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis secondary to infection with serratia marcescens.

    Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis (NEH) is a rare dermatosis which usually develops after administration of chemotherapeutic treatments. An infective origin is exceptional. We report a patient, previously operated on for ependymoma, who presented with an eruption typical of NEH even though he had not received chemotherapy. culture of a skin biopsy revealed serratia marcescens. The dermatosis improved after antibiotic therapy but recurred twice and culture again isolated S. marcescens; electron microscopy revealed cytoplasmic inclusions within neutrophils, suggestive of bacteria. The disease improved every time with appropriate antibiotic therapy. An infective aetiology for NEH is rare: three such cases have been reported, of which one was due to S. marcescens. The originality of our case is the recurrence of the disease on three occasions with the same bacterium isolated on each occasion, with disease remission after antibiotic therapy. This case confirms that infections may be a possible cause of NEH and underlines the necessity to search for infective agents, especially in patients immunocompromised by haematopoietic malignancies and/or chemotherapeutic treatments.

3/44. Plantar hidradenitis in children induced by exposure to wet footwear.

    Painful erythematous papules and nodules involving either the palms of the hands, or, more commonly, the soles of the feet, characterize palmoplantar eccrine hidradenitis or palmoplantar hidradenitis (PH). The younger pediatric population is predominately affected. Histologically, the eccrine gland apparatus is the target of inflammatory neutrophilic infiltrates. This entity has been reported under a variety of names, including traumatic plantar urticaria, neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis, plantar erythema nodosum, and idiopathic recurrent palmoplantar hidradenitis. All are essentially the same process, described in different forms. Despite the growing number of reported cases, the pathogenesis remains obscure. We present four children with PH of the soles of the feet, who shared a common recent history of exposure to cold, damp, footwear. The temporal relationship between exposure to dampness and cold and the appearance of the skin lesions suggest a possible pathogenetic mechanism.

4/44. Recurrent neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis in an hiv-1-infected patient.

    Most cases of neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis (NEH) have been reported in patients receiving chemotherapy for acute myelogenous leukemia or other malignant diseases. We report the case of an hiv-1-infected patient who presented several and strikingly similar episodes of NEH without any medication as well as another one after the first course of chemotherapy for a B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. This case strengthens the hypothesis that NEH may occur in different situations, as reported for other neutrophilic dermatoses.

5/44. Juvenile neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis: a vasculitis-like plantar dermatosis.

    Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis is a variety of neutrophilic dermatosis described in patients with different neoplasms, most often leukaemia, and different chemotherapy regimens. It is characterised by neutrophilic infiltration of the eccrine coils of sweat glands. Recently it has been described in healthy juveniles, involving primarily the soles of the feet. We describe five new cases of juvenile neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis all showing a good prognosis or a self-limiting course.

6/44. Idiopathic palmoplantar eccrine hidradenitis in children.

    Idiopathic palmoplantar eccrine hidradenitis (IPPH) is a recently described disorder characterized by painful erythematous plantar nodules and in three cases, showed a typical neutrophilic infiltrate around and within the eccrine sweat apparatus. Five cases of IPPH on the soles of the feet in healthy children are reported. The disorder presented after intense physical activity in four cases. The course was benign and self-limiting. Complete bed rest for several days without any medical therapy led to alleviation of the pain and disappearance of all the lesions. Conclusion. Idiopathic palmoplantar eccrine hidradenitis may be more common than reported. Paediatricians should be aware of it in order to avoid unnecessary diagnostic tests and treatments.

7/44. Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis in two neutropaenic patients.

    We describe two patients, who presented with erythematous facial plaques, in keeping with neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis, during chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukaemia. Both patients were neutropaenic and febrile. histology showed a dermal neutrophilic infiltrate around the eccrine glands with gland destruction. The importance of recognizing this disorder is to prevent the inappropriate use of antibiotics as it is self limiting.

8/44. Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis in a patient with Behcet's disease.

    patients with Behcet's disease may develop multiple mucocutaneous manifestations, several of which are mediated by neutrophils. These include aphthous ulcers, pseudofolliculitis, acneform lesions, and pathergy. We report another neutrophil-mediated disorder, neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis (NEH), in a patient with Behcet's disease. NEH should be added to the list of mucocutaneous lesions that may be seen in patients with Behcet's disease.

9/44. Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis in actinic reticuloid syndrome.

    Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis (NEH) is a rare, transient complication, which usually occurs in patients with leukemia receiving various chemotherapeutic regimens. However, similar eruptions have been observed in other conditions, including HIV-positive patients, and are often preceded by the onset of malignancies. We report the first case of NEH arising in a patient with actinic reticuloid syndrome who had been treated with methotrexate.

10/44. Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis secondary to topotecan.

    BACKGROUND: Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis (NEH) is a self-restricted inflammatory condition, usually secondary to chemotherapeutic agents and less frequently to other drugs such as zidovudine or various infections. NEH clinical features include erythematous, occasionally painful nodules and plaques. Histological examinations reveal neutrophilic infiltrates and degeneration of eccrine glands. methods: A 45-year-old female was treated with topotecan and colony-stimulating factor for ovarian cancer. RESULTS: The erythematous and slightly pruritic plaques on the upper and lower limbs and ear lobes appeared approximately 1 week after chemotherapy and spontaneously subsided in about 10 days, only to recur after the next drug dose. A skin biopsy revealed NEH; all skin cultures were negative. CONCLUSION: It is believed that this patient developed topotecan-induced NEH; this relationship with therapy rather than the underlying disease rules out a paraneoplastic reaction, and negative cultures excluded infectious causes. In addition, since skin lesions recurred after CSF was discontinued, this agent was not involved. Studies relating NEH to topotecan, a topoisomerasa I inhibitor, have not reported such an event in the literature.
