1/4. Diffuse finely nodular lesions of the esophagus.

    Double contrast study of the esophagus revealed a variety of diffuse finely nodular lesions, some of which have not been adequately reported. acanthosis nigricans, superficial spreading esophageal cancer, leukoplakia, moniliasis, and esophagitis were found to produce this appearance. Typical cases of the first three diseases are demonstrated and the differential diagnosis discussed.

2/4. Acute urinary tract obstruction in dyskeratosis congenita.

    dyskeratosis congenita is a multisystem disease affecting internal organs as well as the skin, nails, and mucous membranes. Tumors of the skin, tongue, cervix, and esophagus may develop in the disease. In this report we describe acute urinary retention that developed due to congenital meatal atresia and small foci of white plaques constricting the urethral meatus in a 27-year-old man with dyskeratosis congenita.

3/4. Oral florid papillomatosis and leukoplakia of the esophagus associated with keratoderma and showing transepidermal elimination.

    A 37-year-old male presented with a cauliflower-like tumor in the right buccal mucosa, leukoplakia of the tongue and esophagus, and keratotic papules or plaques on the extremities including bilateral palms and soles, associated with borderline diabetes mellitus and a repeated history of infections. A multi-system keratinizing abnormality was suspected, although no distinct disease category has been found showing similar involvements.

4/4. Radiological manifestations of oesophageal involvement in acanthosis nigricans.

    Radiologic features of two cases of acanthosis nigricans with oesophageal involvement are reported. The first case demonstrated diffuse, granular shadows throughout the oesophagus which were difficult to differentiate from oesophageal moniliasis. Another case showed many discrete and tiny elevations resembling pseudopolyposis of the colon. Emphasis is placed on radiological differential diagnosis from moniliasis and leukoplakia of the oesophagus.
