The differential diagnosis for pustular skin disorders is extensive. The distribution of the lesions and the age of the patient are characteristics that may provide strong clues to the etiology of cutaneous pustular eruptions.In adults, generalized pustular dermatoses include pustular psoriasis, Reiter’s disease and subcorneal pustular dermatosis. Medications can cause generalized pustular eruptions, such as in the case of acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis; or more localized reactions… Expand
Drug-induced cutaneous pathology
TLDR
Although the temporal link between initiation of drug therapy and the onset of the drug rash is critical to the diagnosis, drug reactions may also occur during the course of chronic drug ingestion, and eosinophils may be sparse or absent in some drug exanthems. Expand
An unusual case of transient neonatal pustular melanosis: a diagnostic puzzle
TLDR
An exceedingly unusual presentation of transient neonatal pustular melanosis is reported, suggesting the importance of a systematic diagnostic approach to allow a confident recognition of this benign condition. Expand
Eosinophilic Folliculitis (Ofuji's Disease) and Mucosal Involvement, in Association with Helicobacter pylori in Sudanese Patient
TLDR
The cases were diagnosed and confirmed histopathologically as Eosinophilic Folliculitis with Helicobacter pylori test positive, considered to be the first case of EF been reported in Sudan and as a mucosal one in particular. Expand
Extra-digital Acrodermatitis Continua of Hallopeau in a Patient with Pre-existing ACH Confined to Right Great Toe
Acrodermatitis Continua of Hallopeau (ACH) is rare, recalcitrant condition consisting of sterile, pustular eruptions of the digits. It is recognized by a variety of names including pustularExpand
Interleukin 1 receptor antagonist deficiency presenting as infantile pustulosis mimicking infantile pustular psoriasis.
TLDR
A high carrier frequency of the 175-kb DIRA-associated genomic deletion in the Puerto Rican population strongly supports testing infants presenting with unexplained pustulosis in patients from this geographic region. Expand
Staphylococcal Skin Infections in Children
TLDR
In children requiring intravenous therapy, ceftriaxone has a major advantage over other antibacterials such as sulbactam/ampicillin and cefuroxime in that it can be given once daily and may, therefore, be suitable for outpatient treatment of moderate-to-severe skin infections. Expand
Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus skin infection presenting as a periumbilical folliculitis.
TLDR
CAMRSA should be considered in the diagnosis of periumbilical folliculitis or superficial folliculaitis arising in areas not typically affected by MSSA-related follicULitis, such as the chest, flanks, and scrotum. Expand
A Case of Irritant Dermatitis Caused by Wood Vinegar on Pustulosis Palmaris et Plantaris
TLDR
This study shows that the oriental medical treatment effects on the irritant dermatitis caused by Wood Vinegar are shown and the public should be aware of indiscreetly- used, natural herbal products as a folk remedy. Expand
Cytologic findings in Demodex folliculitis: A case report and review of the literature
TLDR
A case of a 37‐yr‐old white male with Demodex folliculitis, who presented with an extensive and painful erythematous pustular skin lesion along the right face and scalp in a dermatome pattern clinically suggestive of Varicella zoster, is reported. Expand

Diagnosis and Treatment of Pustular Disorders in the Neonate
TLDR
A systematic approach to pustular eruptions in the neonate is proposed to spare a healthy neonate with a benign transient condition an invasive evaluation for sepsis, potentially harmful antibiotic therapy, and prolonged hospitalization, with its own inherent morbidity. Expand
Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis. Analysis of 63 cases.
TLDR
It is suggested that some cases previously reported as "drug-induced pustular psoriasis" were in fact AGEP, a reaction pattern favored by a "psoriatic background" and added to the list of cutaneous adverse drug reactions. Expand
Subcorneal pustular dermatosis.
TLDR
Modern investigative techniques have allowed the identification of a possible subgroup, subcorneal pustular dermatosis type IgA pemphigus,2 also known as intraepidermal IgC pustulosis, on which the latest reports have focused. Expand
Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis.
TLDR
Most cases of AGEP are drug induced, particularly by antibiotics and mainly beta-lactams, however, a number of other drugs, of which the list is increasing, may be responsible. Expand
T-cell involvement in drug-induced acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis.
TLDR
The data demonstrate the involvement of drug-specific T cells in the pathomechanism of this rather rare and peculiar form of drug allergy and indicate that even in some neutrophil-rich inflammatory responses specific T cells are engaged and might orchestrate the immune reaction. Expand
Eosinophilic Pustular Folliculitis In Infancy
TLDR
It is proposed that eosinophilic pUSTular folliculitis of infancy is a distinct pustular dermatosis. Expand

TLDR
It requires 12 months, at minimum, to determine the efficacy of tonsillectomy as a treatment for PPP, and the rate of improvement of PPP rose in conjunction with the number of days after tonsillectedomy. Expand

Congenital cutaneous candidiasis: clinical presentation, pathogenesis, and management guidelines.
TLDR
Systemic antifungal therapy is recommended for neonates with burn-like dermatitis attributable to Candida spp, or positive blood, urine, and/or cerebrospinal fluid cultures, and systemic treatment should be considered for all infants with CCC who have respiratory distress in the immediate neonatal period.
