Abstract: Scleromyxedema is a rare, chronic, progressive, fibromucinous disorder of unknown etiology, characterized by lichenoid waxy papules and firm induration of skin of trunk, face, forearm and hands; fibroblast proliferation and mucin deposition in the upper dermis. Cutaneous involvement is characteristic but there are several associated systemic manifestations: We observed a case of scleromyxedema with multiple systemic manifestations including endocrinopathy and hypothyroidism. Scleromyxedema is a multisystem disorder associated with multiple organ involvement including liver, muscle, kidney and could be associated with endocrinopathies including hypothyroidism.

Tehran University Medical Journal , 2006,
Abstract: Background: Malignant melanoma is one of the fatal cutaneous neoplasms which are curable by early diagnosis. This neoplasm is diagnosed by the biopsy of the suspected lesion. It is essential to classify the tumor based on its histology, thickness, phase of growth, level of invasion, mitotic rate, presence of regression, inflammatory infiltration and ulceration. These descriptions yield some knowledge about the progression of disease and suggest an estimate of the status of the screening system for early diagnosis. Methods: This is a cross-sectional retrospective descriptive study. Pathological slides with diagnosis of malignant melanoma from 1377 to 1379 that present in the pathology department were assessed according to mentioned pathological indices and the 10-year survival calculated in this regard. Results: We assessed 47 cases with mean age of 57.38 (SD=5.85) and the gender distribution was 51.1% male and 42.2% female. More than 42% of cases were in Clarke level I, 2.1% Clarke level II, 6.4% Clarke level III, 40.4% Clarke level IV and 8.5% Clarke level V. Fifty three percent of patients were breslow thickness equal to or less than 0.75 millimeter(mm) , 8.5% between 0.76 to 1.69 mm , 27.7% between 1.7 to 3.6 mm and 10.6% greater than 3.61 mm. Mean breslow thickness show no significant difference between males and females but there is a significant relation between thickness and age of the patients. Mean 10-year survivals of patients were 75% and were greater in females than males. We found a linear relation between patient age and breslow thickness that is calculated by the following equation: Log Breslow thickness (mm) = - 0.625 + 0.016×age (year) Conclusion: Complete recording of clinical and pathological data of patients with malignant melanoma make a proper stream to reach a surveillance system.

Abstract: Florid cutaneous papillomatosis (FCP), is a rare cutaneous marker of internal malignancy. The underlying cancer is usually intra-abdominal (most often gastric in origin), and evolves parallel to the FCP. There is a common association between FCP and the other two eruptive paraneoplastic syndromes, i.e.malignant acanthosis nigricans and the sign of Leser-Trelat. It seems possible that these syndromes develop via a common pathogenic pathway due to production of a factor similar to human epidermal growth factor by the underlying cancer. We report a case of FCP associated with malignant acanthosis nigricans, palmoplantar keratoderma and gastric adenocarcinoma.

Abstract: Pachydermodactyfy is a rare, benign mostly asymptomatic digital fibromatosis, characterized by swelling on the back and sides of proximal phalanges and (or) proximal interphaiangeal joints. It occurs predominantly in young males although a few women including a familial case were recently described. A history of repeated trauma is sometimes available, but the etiology remains unknown. We report two cases one of which had a history of repeated trauma (rubbing) to the involved area.
Histiocytic syndromes and a review of medical literatures

Tehran University Medical Journal , 1994,
Abstract: Histiocytic syndromes have been studied and investigated in these recent years for their cell origin, morphology, pathology, histochemical, immuno-phenotype characteristic, and their nomenclature, but the results of all these studies are confusingly, vague and not acceptable for all scientists and pathologists. Histiocytes very in the morphology, duty and their immunological behaviour. In different lesion these cells are in the form of mononuclear, foamy cell, macrophages like plasma cell and giant cell with many nuclei. When considering malignant Histiocyte cells and benign reactive histiocytes are both present in malignant histiocytic lesion, one can recognize the diagnostic problems of the pathologist. Markers for recognizing histiocytes are numerous and are increasing rapidly, in spite of that monoclonal antibody investigation, and genetic molecular method, the results as yet are not satisfactory. We have to accept that the new method are not at all sufficient and we have to look for a better method which is more sensitive to histiocyte for diagnosis of numerous histiocytic syndromes. In this paper, we discuss the difficulties on encountered in the diagnosis, and problem in defining and nomenclature of these syndromes and, some efforts are made to present the most acceptable classification for them

Abstract: The present study introduces a rare case of phakomatosispigmenJovascularis, which is charaderiud by the existence ofpigmentary naevus ond vascular naevus. Until 1985, 63 cases ofthis syndrome have been reported, mostly in Japon (56 cases). This is the first case of phakomatosis pigmentovascularis, reported in Iran.
Alopecia-Areata Like Alopecia in Mycosis Fungoides, a Case Report
F. Farnaghi,Z. Safaee Naraghi,S. Mohit
Tehran University Medical Journal , 1998,
Abstract: Mycosis Fungoides (MF) is a cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (2,5). Alopecia is rarely seen in this disease, and the reported cases are in the form of follicular mucinosis (1,2,4). In this case report a patient is presented whose lesions all showed alopecia without mucinosis. Furthermore there was a patch of alopecia without any epidermal changes, which was clinicaly identical with alopecia areata, and histologically identical with MF. After six months of treatment there is regrowth of almost normal hair on all of the lesions
Demographic and pathologic findings of squamous cell carcinoma of skin and lip in pathology department of Razi Hospital

Tehran University Medical Journal , 2001,
Abstract: Squamous cell carcinoma, a cancer of keratinocytes origin, mostly involves sun-exposed areas of the skin. To study the pathologic and demographic features of this disease, records of 395 patients of squamous cell carcinoma of skin and lip were reviewed. Most of the patients (83%) aged 40 years or more at the time of diagnosis. Respectively, 74.4% and 75.8% of cases with skin and lower lip carcinoma were men, but in upper lip cases frequencies of both sexes were equal. The number of patients referred from western and north-western provinces were much more than those of other provinces of the country. The most frequent histologic stage was grade I (53% and 58.8% in skin and lip carcinoma, respectively), showing that most patients visit physicians early enough, and are diagnosed in early stages of the disease.

Iranian Journal of Public Health , 2012,
Abstract: Background: Cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by L. major is an important public health problem in endemic areas. The aim of this study was to explore the therapeutic effect of microwave and or infrared radiation in the treatment of lesion induced in BALB/c mice by L. major inoculation.Methods: The footpad lesion was induced in BALB/c mice by inoculation of L. major promastigotes subcutaneously. The lesion was treated with 600 watts power, 2.450 GHz frequency and/or infrared device with 150 watts and a wave length of 890 nanometres. The size of the lesion was recorded by footpad swelling measurement every 10 days. Results: The lesion growth was significantly hampered in treated mice compared with the untreated control group (P<0.05). Infrared radiation was more effective than microwave in inhibiting ulcer enlargement.Conclusion: Infrared radiation and microwave significantly hampered L. major lesion growth in BALB/c mice. This therapeutic effect was more in infrared radiation treated mice than microwave treated mice.

Abstract: Our purpose was demographic clinical and pathological aspect of BCE in patients seen in Razi Hospital, during a six-month period (75.8.12 to 76.2.12). Results: From the total 20000 patients, 103 cases of BCE were detected. (0.5%). The male female ratio was 1.71 BCE was more frequent in sixth decade. 40.8% of patients were fair skin (Type II), 54.4% tawny (Type III) and 4.9% brown (Type IV, V). 15.5% of patients had a past history of freckles and history of radiotherapy in childhood was present in 41.7% 89.3% had no history of acne and seborrhea. The scalp was the most common site of BCE. The most common clinical type was nodular BCE and solid BCE was the dominant histological feature. Conclusion: BCE was more common in male and fair skin patients with dry skin. In those having history of radiotherapy of the scalp, lesions were seen mostly on the scalp, forehead and neck: pigmented BCE was predominant in this group.
