A 36-year-old woman with a linear and unilateral cutaneous hamartoma is described. The lesions consisted of hypopigmented macules that coalesced into a linear plaque that involved only the left side of her body. Within this plaque were several pearly papules and an ulcerated area that clinically resembled basal cell carcinomas. Histologic features of the(More)
The human hematopoietic progenitor cell antigen (CD34) is a cell surface protein expressed by human hematopoietic progenitor cells, vascular endothelium, and many mesenchymal tumors. Sections from six samples of normal skin and from 41 epithelial tumors of the skin were studied. Immunostaining of epithelial cells from the external root sheath below the(More)
UNLABELLED Since 1959, when Norman Orentreich described the phenomenon of donor dominance in androgenic alopecia and opened the way to hair transplantation, the field of hair replacement surgery has been evolving continuously. Advances in the last 15 years, particularly the microscopic dissection of donor strips into follicular units, have eradicated the(More)
The pruritic papular eruption of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is characterized by generalized, pruritic, skin-colored papules and nodules. Chronic lesions are excoriated and hyperpigmented. The eruption and pruritus typically wax and wane and are resistant to oral antihistamine and topical steroid therapy. The characteristic histologic features(More)
Porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT), a relatively uncommon disease, has recently been reported in patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Although PCT and HIV infection may co-exist by chance, the increasing number of reported cases suggest that HIV or an associated factor triggers the development of PCT in predisposed individuals. We(More)
We have used a monoclonal antibody against human pancreatic lipase to study the immunohistochemical expression of lipase in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded biopsy specimens from normal and a variety of tumoral and inflammatory skin diseases. In normal skin, lipase is detected in the sebaceous glands and in the external root sheath of the hair follicle.(More)
