L'échographie cutanée est une technique d'imagerie cutanée non invasive avec plusieurs indications en dermatologie, qui est fondée sur la réflexion différentielle d'une onde ultrasonique en fonction des structures sous-jacentes, incluant la kératine, le collagène et l'eau. Les différentes possibilités techniques et le rôle de la fréquence des sondes sont brièvement expliqués. L'échographie cutanée est rapide, sans douleurs, non invasive, reproductible et peut être répétée sans risque. Cette technique a une place dans l'évaluation préopératoire de l'épaisseur des lésions tumorales, telles que le mélanome et les carcinomes basocellulaires et spinocellulaires. Elle est également utilisée dans l'évaluation des maladies inflammatoires. [less ▲]

Myxofibrosarcoma (MFS) is a variant of the group of malignant fibrous histiocytomas. It is one of the most aggressive types of soft tissue neoplasms. The clinical presentation is not pathognomonic and the histological aspects are highly heterogenous, frequently delaying the diagnosis or leading to misdiagnosis. Complementary histochemical and immunohistochemical stainings are mandatory to achieve the diagnosis of MFS. A 78-year-old male patient is presented illustrating this diagnostic pitfall. Extensive surgery followed by radiotherapy is the first choice treatment. [less ▲]

There are no demographic data published on those with viral infections of the pubis (VIPs). We conducted a two-year prospective study to collect demographic information on patient with VIPs. Data were gathered on age, sex, diagnosis, low (<=10) or high (>10) lesion number, symptoms, how the patien discovered the lesions, localization, lesions beyond the pubis, risk factors, shaving habits, human papillomavirus vaccination status and treatment. In a total of 61 patients, molluscum contagiosum (MC) was indentified in 71 %, condylomata acuminata (CA) in 11 %, concomitant MC and CA infections in 11 % and herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection in 4.8 %. Shaving represented a risk factor for a high lesion number, but not for the extension beyond the pubis. MC, CA and HSV infections affecting the pubis are uncommon and often symptomatic. As they may represent a hidden source of infection we recommend thourough inspection of the pubis during routine skin examination. [less ▲]

Background : The incidence and severity of herpes zoster (HZ) appear increased in patients receiving tumor necrosis factor-alpha antagonists. Objective : To study the incidence and clinical features of HZ in 1,220 patients (4.206 patient-years) receiving either adalimumab, etanercept, infliximumab, rituximab or ustekinumab. Results: Twenty-two HZ cases were identified (1.26% of total cohort; adalimumab: 11/1,546 patient-years, incidence rate (IR) 7.1; etanercept: 4/789 patient-years, IR5.1; rituximab: 1/168 patient-years, IR 5.2; ustekinumab: 2/37 patient-years, IR53.5; infliximab: 4/1.666 patient-years, IR 2.4). The time to event varied widely (1.5-108 months). Extensive HZ was reported in 45 and 32% of the cases, respectively. Persistent postzoster neuralgia (PHN;>6months) was observed in 5/20 patients. Conclusions: The Hz incidence was 2.1-fold higher among patients over 60 years, compared with a reference population, although not statistically significant. Severe, multidermatomal HZ and persistent PHN were common. [less ▲]

Although varicella zoster virus latency has been demonstrated in several sensory ganglia, herpes zoster usually effects only one single, either left or right, dermatome in half of the body. In immunocompromised patients, more than one contiguous unilateral dermatome may be involved. Bilateral non-contiguous herpes zoster, also termed herpes zoster duplex, is rarely reported. Chronic varicella zoster viurs skin infection is another rare entity encountered in HIV-infected and immunocompromised patients, often associated with aciclovir resistance. We describe here a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, who presented simultaneously non-contiguous bilateral and chronic herpes zoster lasting fore more than 2 months, with resistance to aciclovir. To our knowledge, this is the first report of chronic herpes zoster duplex bilateralis. Physicians should be aware of and recognize the atypical manifestations of varicella zoster virus. [less ▲]
