1/7. Cutaneous plasmacytosis: an unusual presentation sharing features with poems syndrome?

    Cutaneous plasmacytosis is a recently described skin disorder consisting of brown to red papules and nodules containing polyclonal plasmacytes. In this particular case, leg ulcers developed but also a diffuse patchy hyperpigmentation coexisting with a primary hypothyroidisim. The last two signs have only been described to date in poems syndrome, which is linked to monoclonal plasmacytic proliferation, and might suggest an overlap between these two entities.

2/7. Painful ulcers in calciphylaxis - combined treatment with maggot therapy and oral pentoxyfillin.

    BACKGROUND: calciphylaxis is a rare syndrome developing predominantly in female patients suffering from end-stage renal disease (ESRD) with secondary hyperparathyroidism. skin lesions begin as superficial patches that quickly progress to painful necrotic ulcers. Histopathological findings are calcification of small arteries and arterioles and infarction of subcutis and skin. The prognosis of calciphylaxis is poor due to an increased risk of systemic infection. methods: We report on a 50-year-old woman suffering from calciphylaxis. Initial treatments were not tolerated due to pain and therefore the patient was treated with maggot therapy and 800 mg/day of oral pentoxyfillin. RESULTS: Over a period of 6 months a complete remission of her skin lesions was achieved. CONCLUSION: patients suffering from ulcers due to calciphylaxis may benefit from the use of maggot therapy, which cleanses ulcers and prevents systemic infection.

3/7. Allergic contact dermatitis to plectranthus amboinicus masquerading as chronic leg ulcer.

    This report discusses a case of a 69-year-old woman who developed chronic non-healing leg ulcers after long-term topical use of plectranthus amboinicus. The ulcer was proven to be allergic contact dermatitis to P. amboinicus by a patch test. The ulcer healed after discontinuation of P. amboinicus. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of allergic contact dermatitis to P. amboinicus masquerading as chronic leg ulcer.

4/7. Allergic contact dermatitis from eosin.

    Before 1960, eosin sensitivity was not rare and lipstick cheilitis was very common. We report 4 patients seen in 1988 and 1989 who were sensitized to eosin from topical bacteriostatic preparations. All 4 patients had positive patch tests to eosin. The allergen is probably an impurity rather than eosin itself.

5/7. Familial atrophie blanche-like lesions with subcutaneous fibrinoid vasculitis. The Georgian ulcers.

    Atrophie blanche is an uncommon condition characterized by the development of white atrophic patches of skin on the lower extremities, which form as a result of fibrinoid vasculitis of superficial and mid-dermal vessels followed by necrosis and ulceration of the epidermis. We report four cases in which similar lesions developed on the legs and ankles of young Jewish Russian immigrants to israel. Although the lesions share many features with atrophie blanche, they differ in their early age of onset, the male predilection, and the extension of the fibrinoid vasculitic process into the subcutaneous tissue. Additionally, the peculiar population clustering (georgia, U.S.S.R.), common ethnic background, and a family history of similar lesions in close relatives seem to point to a familial or genetic predisposition underlying the development of the disease.

6/7. Contact dermatitis to Synthaderm.

    Allergic contact dermatitis is described in 2 patients treated with Synthaderm, a polyurethane covering for leg ulcers. One of the patients was patch tested with 3 extractions made from Synthaderm as well as with 5 isocyanate compounds. Her patch tests were negative to both extractions and isocyanates, but positive to Synthaderm samples with different batch numbers and years of production.

7/7. Allergic contact dermatitis from purified eosin.

    We report on a patient, seen in 1993, who developed sensitization to eosin from topical preparations. The patient had a positive patch test reaction to pure tetrabromofluorescein but not to its impurities separated by thin-layer chromatography. Our findings suggest that the allergen was eosin itself.
