. The area may be oedematous and can be extremely tender. Pain on urination is typical, particularly in women and spontaneous urination may be impossible. The ulcers dry to form crusts and later heal, leaving a transient red macule with minimal scarring (if any). Less commonly, lesions can pass through the blister phase quickly and blisters may not be noticed. Involvement of the cervix occurs but speculum examination may not be possible. Lesions may also appear extra-genitally, commonly on thighs (...) often caused by infections and sometimes drugs. Many cases have no obvious precipitating cause. It develops 3–14 days following HSV infection. Mild forms of this condition are common and start and present as macules, papules and urticarial lesions which reach up to 3cm on extremities. They especially affect the hands and feet, dorsum of elbows and knees, and less often the trunk. Some lesions develop into the classical “target” lesion with three colour zones: central dusky erythema, surrounded

adulthood. Infection from primary varicella usually confers lifetime immunity. The life-time risk of developing HZ was calculated to be 28% for England and Wales [30]. It is more usual in immunocompromised patients and patients over 50 years, and is unusual in children [31]. Varicella is characterised by fever and a generalised, pruritic, vesicular rash, typically consisting of 200 to 500 lesions in varying stages of development and resolution. The rash progresses rapidly from macules to papules

, such as milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, and shellfish. Insect bites and stings. Contact allergens, such as latex. Certain drugs, such as penicillins, aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and vaccinations. Chronic urticaria (urticaria that lasts for 6 weeks or longer, typically on most days of the week) can be spontaneous (chronic spontaneous urticaria [CSU]), autoimmune (autoimmune urticaria [AU]), or inducible (chronic inducible urticaria [CINDU]) [ ]. CSU occurs with no known (...) identifiable external cause. However, symptoms may be aggravated by heat, stress, certain drugs (for example NSAIDs), and infections (for example viral infection and Helicobacter pylori infection [ ; ]. AU is characterized by the presence of immunoglobulin G (IgG) autoantibodies to the high-affinity receptor for IgE (Fc epsilon R1). It accounts for about 30–50% of chronic urticaria cases [ ; ; ; ; ] and may be associated with other autoimmune conditions (such as thyroiditis). In European guidelines AU

Hepatic Lesions Associated with McCune Albright Syndrome. McCune Albright Syndrome (MAS) results from a GNAS gene mutation. It is associated with café-au-lait macules, fibrous dysplasia, and several endocrinopathies to include gonadotropin-independent precocious puberty, growth hormone excess, Cushing syndrome, thyroid disease, and renal phosphate wasting. It is recognised to be a rare cause of neonatal cholestasis.We describe the hepatic outcome of three children with MAS referred to a single

In the other hand, they have to be considered with great caution for other disorders, such as café au lait macules, melasma or postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. After making the correct diagnosis, if lasers or IPLS are indicated, the optimal wavelengths and parameters will be chosen taking into account the skin phototype, origin and depth of the target pigments.Although

Neurofibroblastoma (NF) or Von Recklinghausen disease, is an autosomal dominant disorder affecting one in 3000 individuals. Cardinal features of NF include multiple café-au-lait macules, benign neurofibromas, and iris hamartomas.

macules and other pigmentation alterations. We report on a 13-month-old girl suspected of having CMMRD due to a desmoplastic medulloblastoma and a striking skin pigmentation that included multiple café-au-lait macules, hypopigmented areas and Mongolian spots. Whole-exome sequencing revealed homozygosity for MSH2 variant p.(Leu92Val) and MSH6 variant p.(Val809del), both variants of uncertain significance (VUS). Immunohistochemical analysis of the tumour tissue showed expression of all four MMR proteins (...) Diagnostic challenges in a child with early onset desmoplastic medulloblastoma and homozygous variants in MSH2 and MSH6. Constitutional mismatch repair deficiency (CMMRD) is an autosomal recessively inherited childhood cancer susceptibility syndrome caused by biallelic germline mutations in one of the mismatch repair (MMR) genes. The spectrum of CMMRD-associated tumours is very broad and many CMMRD patients additionally display signposting non-neoplastic features, most frequently café-au-lait

Clinical and Radiographic Gastrointestinal Abnormalities in McCune-Albright Syndrome. McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS) is a rare disorder characterized by fibrous dysplasia of bone, café-au-lait macules, and hyperfunctioning endocrinopathies. It arises from somatic gain-of-function mutations in GNAS, which encodes the cAMP-regulating protein Gαs. Somatic GNAS mutations have been reported in intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) and various gastrointestinal (GI) tumors. The clinical

Spontaneous loss of heterozygosity is observed in this model, a phenomenon also described in NF1 patients. Oral administration of a mitogen-activated protein kinase/extracellular signal-regulated kinase inhibitor suppresses Ras signaling. To our knowledge, this model provides an unprecedented opportunity to study the complex biology and natural history of NF1 and could prove indispensable
