Summary of "Primary pediatric cutaneous mucinoses."

Primary cutaneous mucinoses are a heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by the abnormal deposition of glycosamminoglycans (mucin) in the skin as the main histopathological clue resulting in distinctive clinical presentations. They are usually diseases of adult age and are uncommon in children in whom the diagnosis and the management are a difficult task. In particular, the classification of primary cutaneous mucinoses occurring in childhood is a difficult and confusing challenge because of the very limited number of described cases and overlaps in their clinicopathological features in the absence of reports of homogeneous case series. The aim of this review is to help dermatologists and pediatricians identify patients with cutaneous mucinoses in pediatric age and enable institution of appropriate management. A classification of primary pediatric cutaneous mucinoses is also proposed. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Anaplastic lymphoma of the skin which develops as a primary neoplasm expressing the CD30 ANTIGEN. It is characterized by solitary nodules or ulcerated tumors.

A group of lymphomas exhibiting clonal expansion of malignant T-lymphocytes arrested at varying stages of differentiation as well as malignant infiltration of the skin. MYCOSIS FUNGOIDES; SEZARY SYNDROME; LYMPHOMATOID PAPULOSIS; and PRIMARY CUTANEOUS ANAPLASTIC LARGE CELL LYMPHOMA are the best characterized of these disorders.

A parasitic hemoflagellate of the subgenus Leishmania leishmania that infects man and animals including rodents. The Leishmania mexicana complex causes both cutaneous (LEISHMANIASIS, CUTANEOUS) and diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis (LEISHMANIASIS, DIFFUSE CUTANEOUS) and includes the subspecies amazonensis, garnhami, mexicana, pifanoi, and venezuelensis. L. m. mexicana causes chiclero ulcer, a form of cutaneous leishmaniasis (LEISHMANIASIS, CUTANEOUS) in the New World. The sandfly, Lutzomyia, appears to be the vector.

Cutaneous lesions arising from infection with Treponema pallidum. In the primary stage, 18-21 days following infection, one or more chancres appear. If untreated, the subsequent stages of the disease appear as syphilids. These eruptions are superficial, nondestructive, exanthematic, transient, macular roseolas that may later be maculopapular or papular polymorphous or scaly, pustular, pigmented eruptions.(Arnold, Odom, and James, Andrew's Diseases of the Skin, 8th ed, p409)
