PEODDN is a rare benign cutaneous disorder that clinically resembles comedo nevus but favors the palms and soles, where pilosebaceous follicles are absent. Widespread involvement along Blaschko’s lines can also occur. It is a disorder of keratinization involving the intraepidermal eccrine duct (acrosyringium) and is characterized by eccrine hamartoma and(More)
A 5-year-old female, known case of pachyonychia congenita, presented with diffuse hair loss; remaining hairs were easily plucked kinky hairs. Hair samples from patient were investigated using a light microscope.

Plasmid DNA vaccination is a promising vaccine platform for prevention and treatment of infectious disease. Enhancement of the DNA vaccine potency by co-inoculation of immunoadjuvant has been shown to be an effective strategy. Modulation of dendritic cells and T-cells locomotion and trafficking to prime an immune response is mediated by distinct chemokines.(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical progression of mycosis fungoides (MF) often correlates with microscopic large cell transformation (LCT). It is reported that CD30 expression in the LCT of MF is associated with an absence of CXCR3 expression. This study investigates a large number of patients diagnosed with MF to determine the correlation between expression of CXCR3(More)
We report phakomatosis pigmentovascularis (PPV) detected in a 40yearold male characterized by the presence of a port-wine stain in the background of aberrant Mongolian spots covering the back, nevus of Ota, ocular melanosis, epidermal nevus and a scaly patch with the diagnosis of discoid lupus erytematosus. These associations have not been reported yet.
Proper differentiation between acral malignant melanoma and benign pigmented lesions like melanocytic nevi is of great value. To avoid unnecessary biopsies, dermatoscopy has been introduced as a non-invasive modality and has improved the clinical diagnostic accuracy in recent decades. We aimed to describe dermoscopic patterns of acral pigmented lesions of(More)
BACKGROUND Longitudinal melanonychia (LM) can be a challenging sign since it may be caused by a wide variety of benign and malignant conditions. Cutaneous melanoma is the most important cause of LM. Objective: We performed this study to examine different aspects of LM in Iran, where cutaneous melanoma is rare. METHODS In this cross-sectional study, we(More)
