We propose the term dilated pore nevus for this lesion, which we conceive to be a histologic variant of nevus comedonicus, similar to porokeratotic eccrine ostial and dermal duct nevus.
A patient presented with a two-month history of an annular eruption on her back. Biopsies of this process revealed dermatophytosis and concurrent granular parakeratosis. This patient's eruption resolved completely with antifungal therapy suggesting that the fungal organisms caused the granular parakeratosis.
In the course of daily sign-out, the diagnoses within a histopathologist's armamentarium are limited by the scope of the histopathologist's knowledge, that is, one cannot diagnose what one does not know. The subject of homogeneous intravascular eosinophilic deposits is used to illustrate this point. A histopathologist unaware that a tick bite reaction can… (More)
