macular or papular, sharply demarcated telangiectases on the face, lips, palate, tongue, ears, chest, or extremities, with occasional presentation under nails. The age of onset for the telangiectases is most often the third decade of life, although earlier presentations may occur during adolescence. Although the distribution of lesions and associated bleeding diathesis are clinically suggestive of hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia, it may occasionally be difficult to distinguish from similar (...) within the GI tract.

Hands of a transfusion-dependent patient on long-term hemodialysis. Several uremia-related cutaneous disorders are visible. The pigmentary alteration results from retained urochromes and hemosiderin deposition. The large bullae are consistent with either porphyria cutanea tarda or the bullous disease of dialysis. All nails show (...) the distal brown-red and proximal white coloring of half-and-half nails. This article does not discuss systemic disorders, because most of them are discussed in other articles in . The purpose of this article is to integrate renal and cutaneous aspects of disease as well as highlight some important, although frequently underappreciated, clinical or laboratory findings that ally renal and skin diseases. Recognition of the details may provide clinicians with greater insight into the management of patients

decades (see the image below). Lesions typically range from one to several millimeters in diameter, but they may grow much larger. Three-dimensional reconstructions of serial sections of skin biopsy specimens have established these lesions to be arteriovenous malformations. Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. Photographs show characteristic telangiectasias of the lips and tongue (left) and nail (right). Treatment The treatment of PAVMs consists of surgical resection or obliteration of the shunt (...) by interstitial edema and infiltration by plasma cells and lymphocytes. Connective-tissue proliferation and interstitial edema result in a characteristic spongy quality to the proximal nail fold—as if the nail were floating in the nail bed. Clinical findings Clinical examination findings may correlate with the severity of clubbing. The earliest finding may be the Schamroth sign, first described by a South African physician when he developed clubbing secondary to infective endocarditis. [ ] In healthy

Manifestations of Anemia Pallor of the skin and mucocutaneous membranes can be a sign of severe anemia of any cause. Severe anemia (hemoglobin Iron deficiency anemia can cause changes in the appearance of the nails, tongue, and hair. In iron deficiency, nails become fragile and develop longitudinal ridges. Nail-plate alterations follow, with the development of koilonychia, a spoonlike convexity (see the images below). Koilonychia. Koilonychia. In iron deficiency anemia, reduced oxygen availability (...) is believed to diminish disulfide bond formation, which consequently reduces nail-plate pliability. Changes also occur in the oral mucosa and on the tongue. Of 378 patients with iron deficiency, 14% had angular stomatitis and almost half had alterations in tongue papillae, either a change to the filiform type or atrophy.

47. Dermatologic Manifestations of Cardiac Disease (Diagnosis)

Clubbing (Hypertrophic Osteoarthropathy) Definition represents a localized drumsticklike swelling of the distal segments of fingers and toes, particularly over the extensor surface. It is caused by connective tissue proliferation leading to increases in the sponginess of the soft tissue at the base of the nails due to stimulation by a humoral substance that causes dilation of the vessels of the fingertip or toe tip. [ ] Differential diagnosis Clubbing, as illustrated below, is seen in persons (...) of clubbing of a finger in a patient with Eisenmenger syndrome (right-to-left shunt). Cyanosis Definition is a bluish discoloration of the skin and mucous membranes due to an increased amount of reduced hemoglobin in the small blood vessels of the skin. It is most appreciable in the lips, nail beds, earlobes, and cheeks. The mechanism includes either dilatation of cutaneous venules or a reduction in the oxygen saturation of intracapillary blood. Cyanosis manifests when the absolute concentration

antimalarials for at least 4 months will develop bluish-gray or purple pigmentation. See image below. Perioral chloroquine pigmentation. Discoloration appears most frequently in the pretibial areas of the lower extremities but can also involve the entire nail bed, nose, cheeks, forehead, ears, and oral mucosa (specifically the hard palate). Initial lesions manifest as discrete, oval macules before eventually coalescing into large patches; histologic examination of the discolored areas reveals increased (...) cause various adverse cutaneous effects, including photosensitivity and diffuse or localized hyperpigmentation of the skin, nails, and mucous membranes. Individual medications within this group induce a variety of distinctive patterns and colors of dyspigmentation. The pathogenesis underlying chemotherapy-related dyspigmentation is not completely known, but some proposed mechanisms for this hyperpigmentation include direct stimulation of melanin production and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation

be added to the topical antifungal regimen to relieve symptoms. The steroid can provide rapid relief from the inflammatory component of the infection, but the steroid should only be applied for the first few days of treatment.
