Pleomorphic T cell lymphoma of the medium to large cell type expressing CD30 antigen is a most aggressive peripheral T cell lymphoma. Currently, there is no satisfactory treatment available for this neoplasm. We report the case of a woman with prominent skin and bone marrow involvement without detectable lymph node localization. This unusual presentation of disease responded well to polychemotherapy combined with autologous bone marrow transplantation. [less ▲]

Vulva is an uncommon localization for basal cell carcinomas. We report three cases and review the literature. There is often a long delay before patients seek medical attention for these lesions. Moreover the clinical aspect is often indistinctive and misleading. The gross polymorphism of vulvar neoplasms therefore calls for biopsy of any suspicious areas. Surgical excision or Moh's chemotherapy are the treatments of choice for vulvar basal cell carcinomas. The recurrence rate remains quite high even when the lesion looks completely resected. [less ▲]

On connaît actuellement une soixantaine de papillomavirus humains. Ils sont responsables des verrues, des condylomes, de papillomes ainsi que de lésions maculeuses paucisymptomatiques. Certaines tumeux épithéliales, localement invasices ou franchement malignes sont également le reflet d'une infection par certains de ces papillomavirus. Nous présentons une brève revue des méthodes cliniques et histologiques qui peuvent être mises en oeuvre pour le dépistage et l'identification de ces atteintes virales. [less ▲]

La connaissance du système immunitaire cutané a beaucoup progressé durant les dernières années. Considérée auparavant comme un organe passif de protection, on sait aujourd'hui que la peau est un organe immunocompétent. Le vieillissement cutané et l'exposition à la lumière ultraviolette ont une influence importante sur le système immunitaire cutané. Après une brève actualisation et description des cellules immunocompétentes de l'épiderme et du derme, nous considérerons la modulation du système immunitaire cutané liée au photovieillissement.

Computerized image analysis was used to compare lentigines (brown freckle-like cutaneous spots) induced by treatment with psoralens and ultraviolet light A (PUVA-induced lentigines) with those induced by solar exposure (actinic lentigines). For these conditions, which appear to be distinctive clinically and histologically, the number, size and shape of the macules were analyzed, revealing significant differences in the two latter parameters. This indicates that UV irradiations of different wave lengths act differently on melanocytes and/or on the interrelation between melanocytes and keratinocytes. The overall effect is much more self-limited in PUVA lentigines than in actinic lentigines, suggesting that the pathophysiology of these lesions is probably different. [less ▲]

We studied the fate of dermal dendrocytes in patients treated with psoralens and ultraviolet light by combining immunohistochemistry and computerized image analysis. Factor-XIIIa-positive dermal dendrocytes were found to be altered in these patients. When compared with controls, dermal dendrocytes were often increased in number and had an uneven size and tissue distribution. Their cytoplasm was occasionally fragmented. These changes were more pronounced when early photosclerosis was present. The alterations described probably reflect vascular changes, and may be responsible for immunomodulating actions and disorder of the connective tissue structure induced by ultraviolet light.

Les mycétomes sont des infections bactériennes ou mycotiques. Ils sont le plus souvent rapportés dans les pays tropicaux et subtropicaux, mais ils peuvent se rencontrer dans nos régions. Nous en rapportons cinq cas pour discuter une actualisation des moyens de diagnostic et les approches thérapeutiques. Ces affections sont caractérisées cliniquement par la présence de fistules et d'écoulements purulents contenant des grains visibles à l'oeil nu. Le diagnostic différentiel est l'actinomycose.
