Chih-Kun Lo , Han-Nan Liu , Kwok-Woon Yu
Dermatol Sinica 24:230-7,2006

Abstract Concomitant infection of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in toe webs is a rather common phenomenon in dermatophytosis complex. Because of the ever increasing resistant strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa against antibiotics, and compromised circulation the affected patients frequently possess, the antibiotic therapies always face the challenge of winning the battle. Previous treatment strategies of soaking the affected feet in several antiseptics including acetic acid, benzalkonium chloride so ..................More

Dermatol Sinica 24:238-46,2006

Abstract Hand dermatitis is the most frequently recognized occupational skin disease. Comprehensive understanding of the epidemiology of hand dermatitis is crucial to be able to make a correct diagnosis or give appropriate recommendations for its management. From 1983 to 2002, among those referred to Contact Clinic at National Taiwan University Hospital, a total of 2568 patients were patch-tested. We recruited 716 cases of hand dermatitis with relevant contact history. After interview following ..................More

Chang-Chieh , Hsu Yu-Hung Wu , Yang-Chih Lin
Dermatol Sinica 24:256-59,2006

ABSTRACT Psoriasis in a linear or unilateral distribution is rare. We report a 1-year-old boy who had a few erythematous scaly plaques at birth that gradually progressed to widespread unilateral plaques along the lines of Blaschko. The term congenital blaschkoid psoriasis was proposed by Lehners-Weber C et al. in 1996 to describe congenital linear psoriatic lesions following the lines of Blaschko. The differentiation of linear psoriasis from other linear dermatoses is not easy. The combination ..................More

Dermatol Sinica 24:260-265,2006

Schnitzler’s syndrome is a rare clinical condition characterized by chronic urticaria, intermittent fever, bone pain, arthralgia or arthritis, and monoclonal immunoglobulin M (IgM) gammopathy. Here we describe a 64-year-old Taiwanese male with a long history of arthralgia, fever, and chronic urticaria with severe pruritus. The IgM-κ monoclonal component in the serum was detected 2 years after the onset of the symptoms. We reported this rare case and reviewed related literature. ..................More

Kai-Jhe Wei , J. Yu-Yun Lee , Shio-Jean Lin
Dermatol Sinica 24:266-268,2006

Setleis syndrome, a variant of aplasia cutis congenita, is a rare genetic disease characterized by bitemporal scarring resembling forceps marks, abnormal eyebrows and eyelashes, low frontal hairline and ‘pursed lips’. We report the first Taiwanese case in a 6-day-old full-term male infant who was born spontaneously to unrelated, normal-appearing parents with atrophic scar-like lesions on the bilateral temporal areas. In addition, upward slanting of the eyebrows and partial absence of the lat ..................More
  Flagellate Hyperpigmentation in a Scratched Area after Bleomycin for Pleurodesis-A Case Report and Review of the Literature-
Yi-Shan Liu , Ya-Hui Chen , Jyh-Seng Wang , Tien-Yi Tzung
Dermatol Sinica 24:269-274,2006

Bleomycin, derived from Streptomyces verticillus, is used extensively in anti-cancer, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-tumor therapy. We present herein a case of 50-year-old woman with right pleural effusion due to liver cirrhosis treated with a single intrapleural instillation of bleomycin for cavitary sclerosis. Generalized itching occurred within 24 hours. Subsequently, streak-like hyperpigmentation soon appeared in the post-scratched areas. A skin biopsy showed an obvious increase in the ..................More
  Immediate Nipple-Areola Reconstruction Following Excision of Bowen’s Disease
Kai-Jhe Wei, Julie Yu-Yun Lee, Tak-Wah Wong
Dermatol Sinica 24:275-277,2006

Bowen’s or Paget’s disease involving nipple is not an uncommon event. Surgical excision with nipple-areola reconstruction is usually required for cosmetic reason. Immediate reconstruction of the deformity during operation is time-saving to both patient and the surgeon. We reported immediately areola-nipple complex reconstruction of a male patient suffered from chronic arsenism with a Bowen’s disease (BD) on his nipple. No tumor recurrence or sequela was noted at 8-year follow up. He was sa ..................More

Mycosis fungoides is the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, and many different clinicopathological variants exist. Interstitial mycosis fungoides is a rare variant of mycosis fungoides. We herein report a 75-year-old woman affected by multiple erythematous, violaceous macules with intense pruritus on the trunk and arms. Histopatholgy of the lesion showed epidermotropism of convoluted lymphocytes with focal Pautrier microabscesses in the epidermis and interstitial lymphoid cells infil ..................More
