AbstractAbstract PDF
We report a case of piroxicam-induced photosensitive dermatitis in a 54-year-old female. She had taken oral piroxicam and was exposed to the sunlight on her way home for a few minutes. Several hours after the sun-exposure she developed well-defined, confluent, erythematous plaques and numerous vesicobullae with pruritus and prickling sensation on the sun-exposed areas. A phototest was done on her first visit. The minimal erythemogenic dose (2 J/cm²) of ultraviolet (UV) A was markedly decreased whereas that of UVB was within a normal limit. Visible light irradiation for 30 minutes did not cause skin lesions. Six months after the initial skin lesions, a photopatch test with 1% and 10% piroxicam solution followed by UVA (10 J/cm²) irradiation showed positive responses on both concentrations.

AbstractAbstract PDF
A case of sporotrichosis misdiagnosed as lupus vulgaris was presented. A 56-year-old woman had been to pea sized, nontender pustules and a hypertrophic-scar-like nodule on the right thigh. She denied any trauma before the lesions developed. Histopathologic findings from the lesion showed tuberculosis-like granulomatous changes. And she was diagnosed as lupus vulgaris. She also had pulmonary tuberculosis and had been treated with antituberculous drugs for 1 year. But skin lesions was not cleared. We suspected the lesions as one of deep mycoses and could confirm sporotrichosis by mycologic studies. They showed characteristic gross colonies and microscopic findings of Sporothrix schenckii..
