Dermatol Sinica 7: 67-74, 1989

Idiopathic calcinosis of scrotum (ICS) is an uncommon disorder which is easily misdiagnosed clinically as calcified epidermal inclusion cyst or pilar cyst. Histologically it is composed of calcified, amorphous basophilic massed without evidence of an epithelial lining. Although the exact pathogenesis of ICS is still unclear, there are many hypotheses about its origin from the literature. Within the recent 6 years, we collected 10 cases of scrotal calcinosis.

Dermatol Sinica 7: 75-79, 1989

LEOPARD syndrome, (multiple lentigines syndrome), an autososmal dominant disorder, has been associated with numerous abnormalities of variable clinical expression. We report a 12-year-old girl with multiple brownish spots on her whole body since childhood, which are increasing during recent years. Physical and laboratory examination revealed multiple lentigines, electrocardiogram conduction defects, retardation of growth, ocular telorism and sensorineural deafness. Histopathology showed a pictur ..................More

Dermatol Sinica 7: 81-86, 1989

Benign familial chronic pemphigus is a rare hereditary entity and characterized byt rcurrent vesicular eruptions located mainly on the neck, axillae and groin area. The vesicles soon ruptured leaving a moist, vegetating surface. We report a case and review the literature regarding history, genetics, etiology, predisposing factors, patient profile clinical manifestation, immunofluorescence, histopathology, electron microscopic findings, differential diganosis and tratment. ..................More
  Familial Benign Chronic Pemphigus
Guang-Yeu Ju, Wen-Jomq Sheu, Han-Nan Liu, The-Lu Chu
Dermatol Sinica 7: 89-93, 1989

A case of familial benign chronic pemphigus is described. The lesion around the anus was initially thought to be condyloma acuminatum by primary service. Papulosquamous lesions over neck and axilla were also noted. Patient's mother had the similar lesions- Histopathologic finding showed a pattern of familial benign chronic pemphigus.

We herein report a case of eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (Ofuji's disease), an uncommon disease in Taiwan, China. A 25-year-old male suffered from sterile, pruritic papules and pustules peripheraly located on an erythematous to brownish plaque on his face for 5 months. The lesion evidenced periperal extension with central clearing and hyerpigmentaion, and it was characterized by exacerbation and partial remission. Histopathologic examination showed typical features of eosinophilic pustular ..................More
  Annular Elastolytic Giant Cell Granuloma

Dermatol Sinica 7: 101-107, 1989

A case of "amnular elastolytic giant cell granuloma" is presented. Clinically the lesion is simillar to "Granuloma annulare" however pathologically there is absence of necrobiosis and showed characteristic "3-zone" phenomenon: (1)actinic elastosis(peripheral zone) (2)fiber-engulfing giant cell granuloma, Granuloma(annular zone) (3) absence of elastic and elastic fiber (central zone ) ..................More
  Hidradenitis Suppurativa
Kit-Ching Wong, Wen-Chye Hsueh, Chu-Kwan Wong
Dermatol Sinica 7: 109-114, 1989

Hidradenitis suppurativa is a relative uncommon disease in Taiwan. We report a 48-year-old woman who has suffered indurated, tender, purulent abscesses and nodules over axillae, breasts, buttocks and perineum for 6 years. Physical examination revealed sinus tract formation with seropurulent discharge over axillae and buttocks and fibrous bands as scarring over left axilla. After antibiotic treatment, the lesions improved gradually and left pigmented scar. ..................More

Dysplastic nevi and dysplastic nevus syndrome, either familial or sporadic, are recently defined entities. Dysplastic nevi are acquired, flat or slightly elevated nevi with characteristic climical appearance. These nevi, usually larger than 5 mm in diameter, have an irregular shape with ill-defined margin and uneven color with erythematous hue. The histologic features of these nevi includes(1)proliferation of melanocytes which may show cytoatypia(2)proliferation of kerationocytes, and(3)mesenchy ..................More
