Papular elastorrhexis is a rare acquired disorder of elastic tissue, characterized by multiple, flesh-colored monomorphous papules usually located on the trunk and the proximal portion of the extremities, occurring in adolescent females. We report a case of PE in an old woman with atypically isolated localization on the neck.
H Syndrome is a rare genodermatosis. It may include facial involvement such as : facial telangiectasia, both hypo- and hyperpigmented lesions, hirsutism, swollen cheeks due to subcutaneous infiltration and eczematous lesions. We describe a new facial phenotype with dermoscopic and histological features in the spectrum of non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis.
A verrucuous tumor of the legA 56-year-old woman, with no medical history, presented with a chronic nodular lesion of the left leg, of two year’s duration. There were no associated systemic symptoms. Physical examination revealed a warty mass with a keratotic surface of measured 2 cm. (Figure 1)A surgical excision was performed. Histological examination showed hyperkeratosis, parakeratosis, papillomatosis and cystic invaginations extending downwards from the epidermis. Two different epithelial cell layers consisting of outer small cuboidal cells and inner columnar cells were present. The papillary projections and dermis had also dense infiltration of plasma cells. (Figure 2) Based on these findings, a diagnosis of Syringocystadenoma Papilliferum (SCAP) of the leg was established.SCAP is a benign adnexal tumor. Most of the cases present with solitary lesion in the head and neck region at birth or in early childhood.1 In fact, only two cases of SCAP on lower leg have been reported in literature.1,2 It is mainly, associated with oragnoid nevus. Histogenesis of this tumor remains controversial.2 Histopathologically, there is no difference between SCAP on different locations.1Despite its rarity, we must consider it in the differential diagnosis of any longstanding nodular lesion with crusted surface. Surgical excision is curative.
Various clinical forms of cutaneous leishmaniasis can be encountered such as: ulcerated, lupoïd, sporotrichoïd and other rare forms (eczematiform, erysipeloid, psoriasiform, verrucous, and pseudotumoral). We report an atypical presentation. Dermatologists should be aware when facing a verrucous mass, especially if the patient comes from an endemic country.
