Classic viral exanthems, such as measles, rubella, and Fifth disease, have great historical significance and, despite vaccine successes, still occur both in the United States and across the world. Because they are either less commonly seen (e.g., measles) or recognized by pediatricians (e.g., Fifth disease), viral exanthems that present to dermatology clinics are often “atypical” and may cause diagnostic confusion. This article will first review a general approach to the patient with a possible… 

NEW PERSPECTIVES IN THE DIAGNOSIS AND THE TREATMENT OF CHILDHOOD FEBRILE EXANTHEMAS.

A child with a febrile exanthema is a complex medical problem involving diagnostic challenges, epidemiological threats and a great concern for the parents and any physician, should be prepared to

Viral exanthems

TLDR
Important clues to the diagnosis of viral exanthems include their distribution and morphology, geographic location and potential exposure to vector-borne or blood-borne viruses.

Diagnosis of Atopic Dermatitis: Mimics, Overlaps, and Complications

TLDR
Familiarity of the spectrum of these diseases and their distinguishing features is critical for correct and timely diagnosis and optimal treatment.

Cutaneous Manifestations and Associated Systemic Findings of Patients with Zika Infections

TLDR
The ZIKV infection exhibits a prominent pattern recognition, including a family/close contact cluster, conjunctivitis, and myalgia, that can be used to distinguish it from other exanthematous viral diseases.

Localized exanthem due to echovirus 9

TLDR
This research presents a novel and scalable approach called “Smart Dermatology” that addresses the challenge of effectively and effectively utilizing nanofiltration for the recovery of deep vein thrombosis in mice.

TLDR
Unilateral laterothoracic exanthem (ULE) was first described in 1962 in the United States and comprehensively elaborated in 1992 and has inconsistently been linked to viral infection, in particular parvovirus B-19.

TLDR
ULE, in young children, is a self-limited morbilliform and scarlatiniform eruption that may represent a specific skin reaction to one or more infectious agents.

TLDR
A convenience sample of patients evaluated by pediatric dermatologists with atypical presentations of HFMD met the clinical case criteria and was found to be consistent with classic HFMD.

Genital ulcers associated with Epstein-Barr virus infection (ulcus vulvae acutum).

TLDR
An adolescent virgin with multiple, deep genital ulcers associated with acute infectious mononucleosis is described, and it is speculated that it may have been caused by percutaneous autoinoculation through cervicovaginal fluid.

Abstract:  Gianotti‐Crosti syndrome is an entity characterized by an acute papular eruption in children and has been associated with a multitude of viruses. This is the first case reported in

Experience with molluscum contagiosum and associated inflammatory reactions in a pediatric dermatology practice: the bump that rashes.

TLDR
Inflammatory reactions to MC, including the previously underrecognized GCLR, are common and treatment of molluscum dermatitis can reduce spread of MC via autoinoculation from scratching, whereas inflamed MC lesions and GCLRs reflect cell-mediated immune responses that may lead to viral clearance.
