The distinction between primary sweat gland carcinomas and metastatic breast carcinoma to the skin is sometimes difficult. In an effort to improve this discrimination, we compared the immunohistochemical staining pattern of 42 primary sweat gland carcinomas (SGCs) with 30 metastases from breast carcinoma (BC) to the skin, 125 primary BCs, and 30(More)
Perifollicular fibroma is a cutaneous hamartomatous proliferation of the pilar connective tissue sheath. We describe a patient with multiple perifollicular fibromas and analyze the literature on this topic. Histologically, perifollicular fibroma is characterized by a concentric arrangement of collagen fibers surrounding a generally unaltered hair follicle.(More)
An entity termed "pustular vasculitis of the hands" was recently described. Patients with this condition presented with low-grade fevers and erythematous plaques, pustules, and bullae limited to the dorsal hands and fingers, which were characterized histologically by a dense neutrophilic infiltrate and leukocytoclastic vasculitis. We describe patients with(More)
Previous reports of a distinctive, fibrous, soft-tissue tumor include eight patients with subcutaneous lesions and six patients with intramuscular lesions. We report a 48-year-old woman with a 2-cm cutaneous and subcutaneous nodule on the left arm with the same histologic features. An excisional biopsy showed a large, well circumscribed tumor replacing the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the validity of the Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Disease Area and Severity Index (CLASI) for use by rheumatologists via reliability testing, and to extend the validation for dermatologists. METHODS Fourteen subjects with cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE; n = 10), a mimicker skin disease only (a cutaneous lesion that may appear(More)
BACKGROUND Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft parts (OFMT) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm of intermediate malignant potential. The tumor most commonly occurs on the extremities with a male predominance. We present an unusual case of OFMT occurring as a cystic lesion on the scalp of a female. CASE HISTORY A 67-year-old woman presented with a 6-year(More)
Polypoid melanoma (PM) was first described by Manci in 1981 [1]. Histologically, it is differentiated from classic nodular melanoma by exhibiting an exophytic growth pattern that rarely extends into the reticular dermis [2,3]. This clinicopathologic variant is not common, and may have a delayed diagnosis. We present a case of PM to highlight the important(More)
