  Paracoccidioidomycosis
Inacio R. Faver, W. P. Daniel Su
Dermatol Sinica 11: 145-157, 1993

Paracoccidoidmycosis is a chronic granulomatous fungal disease caused by P. brasiliensis. It affects the skin, internal organs, lymph nodes, and mucous menbranes and is the most prevalent of the deep mycoses in Latin America, particularly in Brazil. This disease has a progressive course and is potentially fatal unless treated. Thus, to minimize morbidity and mortality,early diagnosis and treatment are essential. Also, adequate follow-up is important for detecting and treating relapse. ..................More

  Comparative Studies in the Growth and Collagen Synthesius between the Cultured Dermal Papilla Cells and Dermal Sheath Cells of Human Scalp Hair Follicles
Hsien-Ching Chiu, Jau-Shiuh Chen, Ying-Chin Wu
Dermatol Sinica 11: 159-169, 1993

Hair follicle dermal papilla cells were cultured by explanting the dispase-pretreated dermal papillae isolated from human scalp specimens. Hair follicle dermal sheath cells were cultured by explanting the bulb-free, lower third follicle segments. The cultured dermal sheath cells were proved to be truly derived from the dermal sheath by their expression of smooth muscleα-actin. The cultured dermal sheath cells revealed a significantly slower growth rate and a lower saturation density but a highe ..................More
   
  Dyschromatosis Symmetrica Hereditaria - Observations in the Abnormalities of Melanocytes
Ching-Jer Sheu, Hamm-Ming Sheu, Chee-Yin Chai, Jin-Wha Kang, Tzu-Man Wu, Hsin-Su Yu
Dermatol Sinica 11: 171-183, 1993

Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria is an autosomal-dominantly inherited pigmentary disorder. Progressive mottled depigmentation with areas of hyperpigmentation are noted over the back of hands and feet during infancy or early childhood.Histochemical and ultrastructural studies were performed on the hypopigmented, normopigmented and hyperpigmented skin of 7 patients with DSH. Specimens from the normal skin of 16 healthy men and women were used as controls. Routine H&E staining, split-dopa reac ..................More

  Bullous Congenital Ichthyosiform Erythroderma (Epidermolytic Hyperkeratosis) - A Case Report
Shyh-Dyi Chuang, Hsien-Ching Chiu, Chun-Hsiang Chang, Wen-Lee Kuo
Dermatol Sinica 11: 185-198, 1993

A 4-month-old male infant was born with blister formation and generalized redness. The skin became scaly with focal hyperkeratotic ridges and occasional appearance of blisters in the following months. None of the family members had the same skin disorder. Histopathological examination revealed epidermolytic hyperkeratosis with intraepidermal bulla. On electron microscopic examination, the lesion showed tonofilament clumping and cell cytolysis in upper stratum spinosum and stratum granulosum cons ..................More
   
  Necrolytic Migratory Erythema
Sheau-Chiou Chao, Bour-Jr Wang, Pin-Wen Lin, Yu-Yun Lee
Dermatol Sinica 11: 199-206, 1993

Necrolytic migratory erythema (NME) is a rare dermatosis.It is an important cutaneous sign of glucagonoma syndrome (GS).The clinical and pathologic findings of NME are characteristic and provide clues for early diagnosis of GS. We report a case of early diagnosis GS.A 51-year-old woman presented with a recurrent pruritic scaly and vesicular eruption involving the lower half of the body for 8 months. A patch test revealed positive reaction to a liquid soap used by the patient and dodecyl gallate. ..................More
   
  Sebaceous Carcinoma of the Eyelid - Report of a Case
Chin-Yao Wang, Jih-Ming Chen, Chen-Yeu Sung, Wei-Hwa Lee, Yen-Chang Tu
Dermatol Sinica 11: 207-214, 1993

Sebaceous carcinoma is a rare adnexal tumor, with a tendency to occur on the eyelids where they originate usually from the meibomian glands or the glands of Zeis. Primary sebaceous carcinomas of the eyelids frequently cause regional or visceral metastases. In addition, pagetoid involvement of the epithelium resulting in a chronic blepharoconjunctivitis or a chalazion is frequently associated with sebaceous gland carcinoma of the eyelid.We herein report a 83-year-old woman who suffered from irrit ..................More
   
  Acquired Tufted Angioma - A Case Report
Wen-Jay Chen, Hsien-Ching Chiu
Dermatol Sinica 11: 215-220, 1993

Acquired tufted angioma is a rare, benign, slowly progressive vascular lesion of the skin mainly occurring in children and young adults of both sexes. Similar cases have been reported in Japan as angioblastoma of Nakagawa. We report a case of an infant with widespread tufted angiomas on the face, auricles, trunk and extremities, including the hand and foot. The features of our case are highlighted and the natural course and treatment of this disease are also discussed. ..................More
   
  Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia - A Case Report and Literature Review
Chih-Yu Chen, Jen-Hung Yang
Dermatol Sinica 11: 221-228, 1993

We herein report a typical case of hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (Rendu-Osler-Weber syndrome). A 51-year-old female suffered from frequent spontaneous epistaxis for 15 years, and had a minor stroke two years ago. Multiple telangiectatic spots were noted over the skin, oral mucosa, nasal mucosa on physical examination. Histopathology showed irregular, large ectactic vessel walls with a layer of endothelium, which devoid of the supporting connective tissue. Upper G-I endoscopy showed tongu ..................More
   
  Eccrine Spiradenoma - Case Report
Su-Ying Wen, Chen-Te Ko, Ke-Ming Hung
Dermatol Sinica 11: 229-233, 1993

A 75-year-old male patient had a well-defined movable bluish ruberry hard subcutaneous nodule measuring 3㎝×5㎝on the inner aspect of left thigh for 13 years. The overlying skin was intact. No spontaneous pain was noted, but pain was elicited by pressure on the skin lesion. Histopathologic examination revealed that two types of cells arranged in interconnecting cords and formed a glandular pattern. The first cell type had a larger pale staining nucleus and a small amount of pale eosinophilic ..................More
