Chung-Wen Ko, Whei-Mi Lien, Kou-Chang Chou, Kai-Yam Ng, Tseng-Tong Kuo, Chun-Hsiang Chang
Dermatol Sinica 8: 191-201, 1990

An 8-month-old male infant had an asymptomatic cutaneous eruptin of red-yellowish, plane papules on the face of 6-months' duration. Histopathologic examination revealed well-circumscribed histiocytic infiltrates in the papillary dermis. With special stains, lots of reticulum fibers were noted in the dermis, but lipid, mucopolysaccharides, glycogen, or iron deposits were not observed in the infiltrating histiocytes. Immunohistochemically, these histiocytes were negative for S-100 protein. By ..................More
  Condyloma Acuminata and Generalized Flat Warts
Jiunn-Yuan Lay, Chun-An Hsu, Shiou-Hwa Jee
Dermatol Sinica 8: 203-212, 1990

We report a 27-year-old male patient who had suffered from growing tumors on the genitalia and many flat papules on the trunk, face and four limbs for 3 years. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of condylomata acuminata and flat warts. Studies of hybridization revealed human papillomavirus (HPV) type 6 in the cauli-flower lesion of genitalia. Immunological studies showed the patient had defect of cell-mediated immunity. Multiple infections with HPVs due to immunological incompetence or im ..................More
  Cutaneous Protothecosis
Shi-Tai Liu, Yue-Zon Kuan, Heng-Leong Chan, Tseng-Tong Kuo
Dermatol Sinica 8: 213-219, 1990

A 72-year-old male presented with a l-month history of an extensive ulcerative erythematous plaque on the right forearm. Histopathologic findings of a skin biopsy specimen demonstrated yeast-like organisms with endosporulation. Fungal culture grew Prototheca wickerhamii. The lesion showed response to treatment with oral ketoconazole. ..................More
  Neck Pigmentaion in Atopics
Shih-Yueh Chen, Horng-Tsann Chiou
Dermatol Sinica 8: 221-227, 1990

Five cases of atopics with pigmentation of the neck were obserbved. They manifested reticular, rippled, patchy, or irregular brown discoloration and involved the antero-lateral aspects of neck. Pathologically, hyperpigmentation of epidermal basal layer and melanin incontinence in upper dermis were the main findings. Neck pigmentation is one of the features of atopic dermatitis, especially in the adult atopics. The patients often come with such complaints because of cosmetic concerns, though ..................More
  Cutanwous Cartilaginous Tumor
Jer-En Jiang, Hsu-Po Yeh
Dermatol Sinica 8: 229-233, 1990

A 38 years old female patient present presented with a pea-sized asymptomatic papule on the tip of her right third toe for one and a half years. Histologically the tumor was well-demarcated within the dermis and was mainly composed of immature hyaline cartilage with foci of myxoid change. Cutaneous cartilaginous tumor was diagnosed, and the tumor showed no recurrence after total excision. We briefly discuss the disease and review the literature. ..................More
  Zosteriform Keratosis Follicularis
Haw-Jeong Lin, Hsien-Ching Chiu, Yau-Chin Lu
Dermatol Sinica 8: 235-240, 1990

A case of zosteriform keratosis follicularis is reported. A 44-year-old male patient had noted some asymptomatic, brownish, pinhead sized, waxy papules grouped over left frontal area for 2 years. Neither obvious aggravation factor nor related family history was noted. Histopathologically, the epidermis showed several invaginated parakeratotic columns beneath which acantholysis of the malpighian layer with corps ronds, grains and suprabasal clefts were found. These skin lesions spontaneously ..................More
  Thrombosed Capillary Aneurysm Simulating Melanoma
Jly-Ming Hong, Koon-Lun Ho, Sai-Foo Cheng
Dermatol Sinica 8: 241-245, 1990

A case of thrombosed capillary aneurysm (TCA) simulating melanoma clinically is reported. The rapid growth and nodular bluish-black lesion of TCA is easily confused with nodular melanoma (NM), causing the patient and the doctor as well to worry excessively. Histopathological examination is essential for the differential diagnosis between TCA and NM. ..................More
  Clear Cell Hidradenoma
Kou-Huan Tseng, Yung-Fa Chao, Hsiu-Chin Chen
Dermatol Sinica 8: 247-252, 1990

Clear cell hidradenomas are relatively frequent benign tumors. They are generally regarded as tumors of the eccrine glands based on their enzyme histo-chemical characteristics and electron microscopic features. We herein report a case of clear cell hidradenoma which occurred on the chest of a 21-year-old female patient. ..................More
