Dermatol Sinica 6: 55-64, 1988

We present a 55-year-old man with a 10 cm ×10 cm tumor mass (subcutaneous lesion) on the left peri-auricular region for one year and multiple purplish red small nonodules on the left frontal area for 4 months. An eosinophilic count of 51% was found. Microscopic examination of the tumors revealed proliferation of blood vessels with plump endothelial cells, and varying degrees of lymphocytic and eosinophilic infiltration. Lymphoid follicle formation was prominent in the subcutaneous lesion whe ..................More

All patients are males and inhrited from carrier mothers.We report two brothers and their carrier mother in one family with the typical findings.

Dermatol Sinica 6: 83-90, 1988

Eosinophilic cellulitis or Well's syndrome is an uncommon ctuaneous disorder of unknown etiology, which combine striking clinical features with characteristic histopathologic changes. In this article, we report a 19-year-old male patient who suffered from eosinophilic cellulitis for half a year. The clinical course was characterized by recurrent, erythematous plaques that resembled acute cellulitis or urticaria. Skin lesions persisted for one to two weeks and then slowly regressed, leaving sl ..................More

We herein report a 87-year-old woman affected by the distinctive butterfly rash on face and multiple erythematous, slightly scaly, discoid lesions over back. The serum antinuclear antiobody titer was up to 1:160. Histopathological picture showed acantholysis in the granular layer of epidermis. Immunofluoresence st ..................More
  Basal Cell Epithelioma - Four Cases Report and Review of Articles -
Chwen-Huey Wu Hung, Boon-Sang Lee, Po-Chak Cheng, Ming-Teng Chung
Dermatol Sinica 6: 97-105, 1988

Basal cell epithelioma is a malignant skin tumor which composed of cells similar to those in the basal layer of the epidermis and its appendages. It was first described by Jacob in 1827 as a rodent ulcer, but a more precise definition was made by Krompecher in 1900. As different patterns of growth are recognized, basal cell epitheliomas form various histopathological types. We report four cases of basal cell epithelioma of different histopathological patterns and the related conditions are rev ..................More

Gwo-Tay Chen, Bou-Jr Wang, Hsu-Po Yeh, Hsiu-Chin Chen
Dermatol Sinica 6: 107-110, 1988

Lupus miliaris disseeminatus faciei (LMDF) is an asymptomatic reddish brown papular eruption which mainly affects lower eyelids, nasolabial folds and forehead. Histopathology, the papules usually show fairly large tubercles composed of epithelioid cells and some giant cells in their center with a large area of caseation necrosis. At the periphery of the tubercles, some chronic inflammatory infiltrate are seen. At present, the etiology is not suggested to be related to tuberculid but a skin di ..................More
  Rudimentary Supernumerary Digit - A Case Report -
Hsien-Chi Chang, Gwo-Tay Chen, Hsiu-Chin Chen, Hsu-Po Yeh
Dermatol Sinica 6: 111-115, 1988

The so-called urdimentary supernumerary finger was believed to be an amputated neuroma based on histopathologic finding. We present a 9-year-old girl who had a soft papule (0.6cm3) on the radial side of right thumb since childhood without any symptom. The major histopathologic finding is marked proliferation in the dermis. The pictures are similar to neural traumatic neuroma. ..................More

Dermatol Sinica 6: 117-122, 1988

Although pyogeenic granuloma of the skin, mucosa or subcutneous tissue is a rather common tumor, intravenous pyogenic granuloma (IVPG) is distinctly rare. We present a 47-year-old male patient with a subcutaneous nodule on right elbow and the histopathologic changes shows the characteristic picture of IVPG. The importance of accurate diagnosis of IVPG lies is the fact that the IVPG should be differentiated from angiosarcoma and other intravascular angiomatous growhts to prevent unnecessary man ..................More
