1/16. herpes zoster of the penis: an unusual location for a common eruption.

    herpes zoster is an acute vesiculobullous eruption estimated to affect 10% to 20% of the population. The diagnosis usually can be based on clinical features alone, but laboratory studies may be needed for definitive diagnosis, particularly in atypical presentations.

2/16. Non-pigmenting cutaneous-mucosal fixed drug eruption due to piroxicam.

    BACKGROUND: piroxicam is a widely used anti-inflammatory drug. Most adverse reactions affect gastrointestinal system, liver and skin. Fixed drug eruption although very unusual, has also been described, but with cutaneous involvement exclusively.We present the case of a 49-year-old man who suffered three episodes of fixed drug eruption with cutaneous-mucosal involvement, even simulating an autoimmune disease, whenever he was treated with oral piroxicam. methods AND RESULTS: He was patch tested on normal skin with the GEIDC standard series and an NSAIDs series. He was patch tested on normal skin and on fixed eruption with piroxicam, meloxicam and tenoxicam (all of them 1 % pet). Oral challenge test was not performed due to the severity and reproducibility in previous reactions.Results showed a positive patch test to piroxicam (1 % pet) on fixed eruption, with negative results to the rest. CONCLUSIONS: Adverse drug reactions may present a wide variability of clinical symptoms. In these situations an accurate clinical history is necessary. To our knowledge this is the 1st report of non-pigmenting fixed drug eruption with cutaneous-mucosal involvement due to piroxicam. Cross-reactivity between oxicams could not be demonstrated by patch test on fixed eruption.

3/16. Primary tuberculosis of the glans penis in male kidney transplant recipients: a report on two cases.

    An extremely rare form of genitourinary tract tuberculosis (TB) is TB of the glans penis. Here, we report on two men with TB of the glans, both occurring secondary to their wives having genital TB. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of this nature from iran. One case is a 48 year-old blind male with an asymptomatic papulo-pustular eruption over the glans and, the other is a 51 year-old male who had kidney transplantation in March 2004, and was referred to our transplantation clinic nine months later with papulonecrotic ulcer on the glans which did not respond to antibiotic therapy. Both patients responded well to anti-TB treatment. Our cases suggest that every papulonecrotic lesion on the glans must raise the suspicion of TB, and an underlying active or healed focus of TB should be thoroughly searched. Also, it is very important, particularly in endemic areas, that prior to transplanting a male patient, his female partner must be examined for TB of the genitalia.

4/16. Lichenoid drug eruption secondary to propranolol.

    propranolol, a widely prescribed beta-adrenergic receptor blocker, has occasionally been associated with adverse cutaneous reactions. We present a case of ulcerative lichenoid drug eruption of the penis secondary to propranolol therapy. This unusual clinical presentation has not been described previously in the literature.

5/16. Fixed drug eruption due to foscarnet.

    A case of fixed drug eruption (FDE) secondary to foscarnet is reported. This drug has recently become available on a compassionate use basis for treatment of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection which may cause significant disease in immunosuppressed patients. foscarnet provides a useful alternative to the only licensed anti-CMV drug currently available, namely ganciclovir (DHPG), as it has a different toxicity profile. In particular, it does not appear to cause bone marrow suppression which is of importance in AIDS patients as many of them are taking concurrent zidovudine.

6/16. Fixed drug eruption to sulindac.

    We report a case of fixed drug eruption secondary to sulindac (Clinoril). Owing to the drug's current popularity we believe that physicians should be made aware of this phenomenon. We present a patient who had the unusual feature of hypopigmentation associated with healing of his lesion. A brief review of clinical features and pathophysiology of fixed drug eruption is also presented.

7/16. Fixed drug eruption of the penis due to co-trimoxazole.

    Fixed eruption of the penis, due to co-trimoxazole, is described in two boys. The eruption was accompanied by severe swelling of the penis, urine retention, and pain during micturition. The migration inhibiting factor assay for co-trimoxazole was negative, but the mast cell degranulation test was strongly positive, suggesting reaginic hypersensitivity reaction.

8/16. balanitis as a fixed drug eruption to tetracycline.

    Fixed drug eruptions are a rarely reported complication of tetracycline therapy. For poorly understood reasons, the epithelium of the glans penis seems unusually susceptible to this type of reaction. We report 3 additional cases of balanitis secondary to orally administered tetracycline and suggest that there may not be cross sensitivity to doxycycline.

9/16. A case of secondary syphilis with a solitary pulmonary lesion.

    This study describes a case of secondary syphilis with a papular eruption and penile ulceration. A chest roentgenogram showed a solitary lesion in the left middle lung field. Histological examination revealed epithelioid cell granuloma in both the penile ulcer and the lung lesion. After antisyphilitic treatment, the lung lesion shrunk remarkably and at the same time the skin eruption and the systemic symptoms also improved.

10/16. Papulosquamous lesions of glans penis.

    The presentation of a scaly papule or plaque on the glans penis should suggest more wide-spread papulosquamous disease. Careful examination of the remaining body surface, including the oral mucosa and nails, in almost all cases will yield clues to the correct diagnosis. Papulosquamous disease which may present as a penile lesion include psoriasis, Reiter syndrome, lichen planus, lichen nitidus, seborrheic dermatitis, secondary syphilis, fixed drug eruption, erythroplasia of Queyrat, plasma cell balanitis of Zoon, bowenoid papulosis, and discoid and lichenoid chronic dermatosis of Sulzberger and Garbe.
