Summary of "Papular drug eruption along the lines of Blaschko caused by lenalidomide."

Cutaneous drug reactions can take many forms. In rare cases these reactions can occur along the lines of Blaschko. A 60-year-old patient received lenalidomide in 3-weeks-cycles for the treatment of a plasmocytoma. After four months of treatment, red papules appeared on the extremities and the trunk following the lines of Blaschko. The lesions nearly disappeared during drug-free intervals and appeared with renewed intensity after restart of a therapy cycle.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A papular eruption of unknown etiology that progresses to residual papular erythema and scaling usually confined to the area of the mouth, and almost exclusively occurring in young women. It may also be localized or extend to involve the eyelids and adjacent glabella area of the forehead (periocular dermatitis). (Dorland, 28th ed)

Rare, chronic, papulo-vesicular disease characterized by an intensely pruritic eruption consisting of various combinations of symmetrical, erythematous, papular, vesicular, or bullous lesions. The disease is strongly associated with the presence of HLA-B8 and HLA-DR3 antigens. A variety of different autoantibodies has been detected in small numbers in patients with dermatitis herpetiformis.

A benign, non-neoplastic, usually self-limiting epithelial lesion closely resembling squamous cell carcinoma clinically and histopathologically. It occurs in solitary, multiple, and eruptive forms. The solitary and multiple forms occur on sunlight exposed areas and are identical histologically; they affect primarily white males. The eruptive form usually involves both sexes and appears as a generalized papular eruption.
