Microabscesses of Munro, typically found in psoriatic lesions, can be found in ILVEN as well. In a recent and interesting study, Vissers et al. compared by quantitative immunohistochemistry the subsets of T lymphocytes and markers for epidermal growth and keratinization in biopsies taken from skin lesions of patients with psoriasis and patients with ILVEN. Differences found… 
Allergic contact dermatitis from temporary henna tattoo
A 9‐year‐old boy with allergic contact dermatitis due to temporary henna tattooing is reported, and patch testing showed a positive reaction to PPD, which may be a very potent contact sensitizer.
Allergic contact dermatitis to para-phenylenediamine in a tattoo: a case report
It is aimed to draw attention to the potential harms of para-phenylenediamine containing temporary tattoos by presenting a child patient who developed allergic contact dermatitis after having a scorpion-shaped temporary tattoo on his forearm.
Inflammatory Linear Verrucous Epidermal Nevus (Ilven)
There have been multiple reports of ILVEN associated with ipsilateral skeletal abnormalities (often representing incorrectly diagnosed cases of CHILD syndrome) and isolated case reports in association with systemic and/or nervous system malformations and neurological dysfunction.
Allergic Reaction to Pigments and Metals
No person with atopic history or immunologic disorders should acquire a tattoo, nor should children and adolescents, while health education for parents of especially younger children is urgently needed.
Side-effects of henna and semi-permanent 'black henna' tattoos: a full review.
This article provides a full review of the side-effects of topical application of red and black henna, both cutaneous (allergic and non-allergic) and systemic.
Side‐effects of henna and semi‐permanent ‘black henna’ tattoos: a full review
The side‐effects of topical application of red and black henna, both cutaneous (allergic and non‐allergic) and systemic, are provided, with rare instances of contact allergy and type I hypersensitivity reactions.
Antimicrobial efficacy of henna extracts.
Alcoholic and oily extracts showed pronounced antibacterial effects against the isolated bacteria in vitro but oily extracts had much similar MICs to those of antibiotics and there are significant difference between effect of both extracts and antibiotics p>0.050.

Immunohistochemical differentiation between inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus (ILVEN) and psoriasis.
A comparison of the subsets of T-lymphocytes and markers for epidermal growth and keratinisation in biopsies taken from skin lesions of patients with and without ILVEN delineated ILVEN from psoriasis found increased keratin 10 expression in ILVEN sine Psoriasis, and T cells relevant in the pathogenesis of psOriasis are markedly reduced.
Inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal naevus (ILVEN) versus linear psoriasis. A clinical, histological and immunohistochemical study.
The immunohistochemical study suggests that the following procedures have an additional diagnostic impact: assessment of elastase-positive cells, assessment of keratin 16 and of kerates 10.
Unilateral psoriasis: a case individualized by means of involucrin.
The case of a 25-year-old man, with no relevant personal or family history, who presented with a number of pruritic, punctiform erythematosquamous lesions that were linearly distributed over the left side of the body, confirms that involucrin immunohistochemistry can be a useful diagnostic tool in cases of this type of psoriasis.
Inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal naevus with auto-immune thyroiditis: coexistence of two auto-immune epithelial inflammations?
Data suggest that keratinocytes in ILVEN could present some antigens and perhaps auto-antigens modified by the hamartomatous process, leading to an (auto-immune?) inflammatory reaction.
Allergic contact dermatitis caused by skin painting (pseudotattooing) with black henna, a mixture of henna and p-phenylenediamine and its derivatives.
The mixtures used by the artists possibly contained natural henna, a rare and weak skin sensitizer, and likely contained chemical coloring agents, diaminobenzenes or diaminotoluenes, such as p-phenylenediamine and/or diaminosodium, which are prohibited for direct skin application.

Histopathogenesis of inflammatory linear verrucose epidermal naevus: histochemistry, immunohistochemistry and ultrastructure
Skin lesions of three patients with inflammatory linear verrucose epidermal naevus (ILVEN) were examined, and a unique finding was the lack of involucrin expression in the ILVEN parakeratotic epidermis.
Allelic loss underlies type 2 segmental Hailey-Hailey disease, providing molecular confirmation of a novel genetic concept.
By analyzing DNA and RNA derived from blood and skin samples as well as keratinocytes of the index patient with various molecular techniques including RT-PCR, real-time PCR, and microsatellite analysis, a consistent loss of the paternal wild-type allele is found in more severely affected segmental skin regions, confirming the hypothesis that 2 different types of segmental involvement can be distinguished.
Provocative use testing of methyldibromo glutaronitrile in a cosmetic shampoo
Evidence is provided to support that a shampoo product containing 0.02% MDGN may safely be used by most individuals who are presensitized to MDGN.
Contact sensitivity to henna
This case of contact dermatitis to unsaturated polyester resin in a prosthesis is apparently unique, and another unusual feature is its appearance in a very young child.
