The following discussion deals with three emerging infection diseases that any dermatopathologist working in the northern hemisphere can come across. The first subject to be dealt with is gnathostomiasis. This parasitic disease is produced by the third larvarial stage of the parasite that in most patients is associated with the ingestion of raw fish. Epidemiologically, it is most commonly seen in South East Asia, Japan, China, and the American continent, mainly in Mexico, Ecuador, and Peru…

Meningoencephalitis Due to Free-Living Amoebas in the Tropics
TLDR
As global warming increases, clinicians will be challenged to diagnose and treat infections by free-living amoebas and awareness of clinical syndromes, diagnostic tools, and therapeutic interventions is crucial.

Gnathostomiasis: an emerging infectious disease relevant to all dermatologists*
TLDR
The disease usually presents as a deep-seated or slightly superficial migratory nodule in patients with history of eating raw fish, in the form of ceviche, sushi, or sashimi, and chances of finding the parasite are low.

Gnathostomiasis, Another Emerging Imported Disease
SUMMARY Gnathostomiasis is a food-borne zoonosis caused by the late-third stage larvae of Gnathostoma spp. It is being seen with increasing frequency in countries where it is not endemic and should
Buruli Ulcer: a Review of the Current Knowledge
TLDR
Buruli ulcer is a necrotizing and disabling cutaneous disease caused by Mycobacterium ulcerans, one of the skin-related neglected tropical diseases (skin NTDs) and its treatment is currently in the transition period from rifampicin plus streptomycin (injection) to all-oral regimen.
Balamuthia Mandrillaris Amoebic Encephalitis: An Emerging Parasitic Infection
Balamuthia mandrillaris is a free living amoeba that can be isolated from soil. It is an emerging pathogen causing skin lesions as well as CNS involvement with a fatal outcome if untreated. The
Histopathologic Features of Mycobacterium ulcerans Infection
TLDR
Defining histologic criteria for a diagnosis of Buruli ulcer disease is of clinical and public health importance since it would allow earlier treatment, leading to less deforming sequelae.

TLDR
Gnathostomiasis is no longer a disease of returning travelers, and autochthonous cases may be anticipated to increase as a result of the importation of live Gnathostoma-infected species and the potential establishment of regional zoonoses of GnathOSToma- Infected wild species.
