Non-infectious granulomatous diseases of the skin are a broad group of distinct reactive inflammatory conditions that share important similarities. As a group, they are relatively difficult to diagnose and distinguish both clinically as well as histologically. Many of these disorders have significant associations with systemic diseases that impact the patient’s overall prognosis. In this update, we offer a discussion of emerging concepts and controversies in this field, as presented through… Expand
A clinicopathological analysis of non-infectious granulomatous dermatoses
TLDR
Non-infectious granulomatous disorders of skin encompass a large group of disorders with overlapping features and adequate clinical data and subtle histological findings are important for specific diagnosis which provides better patient management. Expand

TLDR
Three clinical cases of granulomatous skin occurring in the elderly patients confirmed at histology examination are presented, along with specific differential diagnosis, based on data from the literature. Expand
Granulomatous dysimmune reactions (sarcoidosis, granuloma annulare, and others) on differently injured skin areas.
TLDR
A genetic predisposition and an intact systemic immune system are both instrumental for the persistence of local granuloma formation in the ICD, and recent studies have found clinical and pathologic overlapping features across noninfectious granulomas. Expand
Cutaneous Manifestations in Patients With Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: Pathophysiology, Clinical Features, and Therapy
TLDR
The number of cutaneous adverse reactions because of IBD therapies is progressively increasing, and the most frequent drug-induced cutaneous manifestations are psoriasis-like, eczema- like, and lichenoid eruptions, as well as cutaneous lupus erythematosus for biologics and nonmelanoma skin cancer, mainly basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas for thiopurines.

Granulomas of the skin may be classified in several ways. They are either infectious or non-infectious in character, and they contain areas of necrobiosis or necrosis, or not. Responsible infectiousExpand
Non-infectious granulomatous dermatitis –a histomorphological study at a tertiary care centre
TLDR
Knowledge of histomorphology of non-infectious granulomatous dermatitis is very important to understand and detect the early and old lesions of dermatitis, in guiding and planning the therapeutic approaches of the dermatitis. Expand
Approaches to the dermatopathologic diagnosis of figurate lesions
TLDR
An attempt to offer an approach to diagnosing figurate skin lesions according to the presence of lymphocytic, neutrophilic-eosinophilic, or granulomatous infiltrates, and infiltrates containing plasma cells is offered. Expand
[Approaches to the dermatopathologic diagnosis of figurate lesions].
TLDR
Annular lesions are classified according to the presence of lymphocytic, neutrophilic-eosinophilic, or granulomatous infiltrates, and infiltrates containing plasma cells to offer an approach to diagnosing these dermatoses. Expand
Cutaneous manifestations of gastrointestinal disease: part II.
TLDR
An in-depth analysis of inflammatory bowel disease skin findings is provided to aid dermatologists in recognizing and facilitating early consultation and intervention by gastroenterologists, as well as GI complications associated with vascular disorders. Expand
Cutaneous manifestations in inflammatory bowel disease (Review)
TLDR
Cutaneous EIMs are divided into disease-specific lesions that show the same histopathologic findings as the underlying gastrointestinal disease, reactive lesions which are inflammatory lesions that share a common pathogenetic mechanism but do not share the same pathology with theintestinal disease, and associated conditions which are more frequently observed in the context of IBD.

Interstitial Granulomatous Drug Reaction with a Histological Pattern of Interstitial Granulomatous Dermatitis
TLDR
The aim was to determine the histologic criteria allowing us to differentiate IGDR without interface dermatitis and lymphoid atypia from interstitial granulomatous dermatitis, and to expand the histological spectrum of IGDR including a histological pattern similar to interstitialgranulomatography-like dermatitis. Expand
The histopathologic spectrum of palisaded neutrophilic and granulomatous dermatitis in patients with collagen vascular disease.
TLDR
The name palisaded neutrophilic and granulomatous dermatitis of immune complex disease is proposed to reflect the histopathologic evolution and clinical aspects of this condition. Expand

We present 20 patients in whom drug therapy was associated with interstitial histiocytic infiltrates with variable degeneration of collagen and elastic fibers mimicking early lesions of granulomaExpand
A distinctive cutaneous reaction pattern indicative of infection by reactive arthropathy‐associated microbial pathogens: the superantigen ID reaction
TLDR
It is the authors' belief that the eruptions seen in these patients may in part reflect a genetic or iatrogenic predisposition to respond excessively to certain infectious triggers. Expand
Cutaneous Sarcoidosis: The ‘Great Imitator’

TLDR
This article focuses on the dermatologic aspects of sarcoidosis and includes a review of the most recent literature, which includes new data on the diagnosis, differential diagnosis, pathogenesis, and treatment of the disease. Expand
Palisaded neutrophilic granulomatous dermatitis in rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
On histologic examination, a spectrum of changes was observed ranging from urticaria-like infiltrates to leukocytoclastic vasculitis and granuloma annulare with neutrophils, to expand the histologic spectrum of this entity and to further delineate the different forms of clinical presentation.

TLDR
The most relevant characteristics of this disease are reviewed, in order to increase awareness and to avoid delay in diagnosis and improve management of the whole CD complex. Expand
Cutaneous involvement in sarcoidosis. Relationship to systemic disease.
TLDR
A workup for systemic sarcoidosis should be undertaken in every patient with Sarcoid cutaneous granulomas, while erythema nodosum is the hallmark of acute and benign disease. Expand
Early lesion of palisaded neutrophilic granulomatous dermatitis in ulcerative colitis.
TLDR
A patient with quiescent ulcerative colitis, who presented with recurrent small tender papules, nodules and erythematous plaques, and the histopathologic picture indicated an early stage of PNGD with focal degeneration of collagen fibers but without distinct granuloma formation, is described. Expand

TLDR
PNGD is a rare cutaneous finding in patients with a variety of immune-mediated systemic diseases, most often rheumatoid arthritis, that may spontaneously remit or may respond favorably to topical corticosteroids or dapsone. Expand
