Some atypical variants were already described, such as chancriform, palmoplantar, zosteriform, and erysipeloid
, and more recently the paronychial, annular, eyelid, chancriform, zosteriform, and palmoplantar that palmoplantar region reports were very rare (1, 3, 5, 7-9).
Skin papules and/or nodules were found in 80% of patients, telangiectatic carcinomas in 11%, erysipeloid
carcinomas in 3%, 'en cuirasse' carcinomas in 3%, alopecia neoplastica in 2% and a zosteriform type in 0.8%.
leishmaniasis: an unusual clinical presentation.
dermatitis is infective, with an erythematous-oedematous appearance.
is a disease of traumatized skin consisting of fever, vesicles of the hands and feet, and inflammation of the mucous membranes caused by Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae (from the Greek words erythros for red, pella for skin, thrix for hair).
The most common dermatologic manifestation is a distinctive erysipeloid
rash on the lower extremities that occurs in about 15% of children with this syndrome.
Editorial Note: Although off virus infection is self-limiting in hosts with normal immune systems, it can resemble skin lesions associated with potentially life-threatening zoonotic infections such as tularemia, cutaneous anthrax, and erysipeloid
(2); therefore, rapid and definitive diagnosis is critical.
Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae, a gram-positive bacillus found in fresh and salt water, causes erysipeloid
, which is characterized by well-demarcated skin plaques.
Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) may present with unusual clinical variants such as acute paronychial, annular, palmoplantar, zosteriform, erysipeloid
, lupoid and sporotrichoid.
