Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 1990,
Abstract: In a case of urticaria pigmentosa, histopathological and electron microscopical observation of skin lesions before and after dermatographism were compared. The results showed that the shape, membranes, nuclei and granules of mast cells in the lesions before and after dermatographism are different. The prognosis, the clinical significance of dermato-graphism test and the pattern of degranulation in urticaria pigmentosa are discussed.

Abstract: urticaria pigmentosa (up) is the most frequent clinical feature of cutaneous mastocytosis. it usually begins in a bimodal way: a peak of incidence from birth to the age of 3 and the other one between 2nd and 6th decades of life. darier's sign is constant over the affected skin without affecting the surrounding skin. when up starts early, it has a good prognosis disappearing into adolescence, while late onset is often associated with persistent or systemic involvement. this article reports two cases of up, one with the classic description of the disease and the other with an unusual clinical presentation, prompting the pediatrician to incorporate both forms as different manifestations of the same entity.

Yasemin Altuner Torun,Dilek Uluba?,Sebahat Tülpar,Aylin Okur
Erciyes Medical Journal , 2008,
Abstract: We report a case of congenital lobar emphysema diagnosed postnatally in an infant of one-day old.Congenital lobar emphysema is characterized by overinflation of pulmonary lobe and is caused by localised bronchial obstruction. The disease may result in severe respiratory distress in early infancy. Histology and serology confirmed infection with syphilis. Syphilis pneumonitis leading to inflammation and obstruction in the bronchial tree may have resulted in the development of congenital Bullous emphysema.

Revista médica de Chile , 2005, DOI: 10.4067/S0034-98872005000200009
Abstract: we report a 40 years old woman with chronic urticaria and acute transverse myelitis associated with systemic lupus erythematosus. the urticaria appeared in her adolescence and after 26 years was followed by photosensitivity, peripheral polyarthritis and acute transverse myelitis, with positive antiphospholipid and antinuclear antibodies. both chronic urticaria and acute transverse myelitis have been described associated with or appearing as the first manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus. transverse myelitis is a rare and still poorly understood condition reported in about 2% of patients with systemic lupus (rev méd chile 2005; 133: 209-13)

Erdal Eren,Ufuk ?ahin T??,Fadime Kendir,Ali Ayata
Güncel Pediatri , 2008,
Abstract: Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is characterized by progressive loss of vision and accompanied by many syndromes. Therefore, early diagnosis is very important in RP. Now, definitive treatment of RP is not available. Diagnosis is performed with good medical history and ophthalmolojical examination. We present a patient with RP and describe diagnosis, treatment and approach to this disease. (Journal of Current Pediatrics 2008; 6: 43-6)
Unusual Presentation of Acute Annular Urticaria: A Case Report
Gilles Guerrier,Jean-Marc Daronat,Roger Deltour
Case Reports in Dermatological Medicine , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/604390
Abstract: Acute urticarial lesions may display central clearing with ecchymotic or haemorrhagic hue, often misdiagnosed as erythema multiforme, serum-sickness-like reactions, or urticarial vasculitis. We report a case of acute annular urticaria with unusual presentation occurring in a 20-month-old child to emphasize the distinctive morphologic manifestations in a single disease. Clinicians who care for children should be able to differentiate acute urticaria from its clinical mimics. A directed history and physical examination can reliably orientate necessary diagnostic testing and allow for appropriate treatment.

Abstract: Xeroderma pigmentosum is a rare, autosomal recessive disease caused by a defect in DNA repair. Patients with xeroderma pigmentosum often have cutaneous and ocular sun sensitivity, freckle-like skin pigmentation, multiple skin and eye cancers, and, in some patients, progressive neurodegeneration. Xeroderma pigmentosum predominantly affects the ultraviolet (UV) exposed ocular surface, resulting in eyelid atrophy and cancers, corneal dryness, exposure keratopathy, and conjunctival tumors. General features included parental consanguinity (40%), familiarity (60%), onset of symptoms in the first 2 years (50%), malignant skin neoplasms (60%), and carcinoma of the tongue (20%). Among the ocular features, 50% of patients presented with photophobia. Lid freckles or atrophic skin lesions were seen in all patients. Lower lid tumours were seen in 30%, chronic conjunctival congestion in 40%, corneal opacification in 40%, squamous cell carcinoma of limbus in 20%, bilateral pterygium in 40%, and visual impairment in 50%. We report the clinical history and ocular pathology of a boy who is having xeroderma pigmentosum with ocular manifestations. The ophthalmic manifestations of xeroderma pigmentosum are discussed and reviewed with respect to this report and other cases in the literature. These cases illustrate the role of DNA repair in protection of the eyes from UV damage and neuron degeneration of the retina.
