We report on a 9-year-old girl with skin type I according to Fitzpatrick, who developed for the first time infiltrated erythema partly covered by yellowish crusts in her face and on her helices immediately following first intense insolation in spring and presented disseminated papulovesicular lesions. An infection with EBV could not be found in serology. A porphyria could be ruled out. The eruption almost completely cleared under mild topical corticosteroids within five days. We made the diagnosis of Hydroa vacciniforme showing also clinical or demographic features of actinic prurigo and juvenile spring eruption. The differential diagnosis of these diseases is discussed in the light of the literature. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG.

We report on a 91-years old male caucasian patient with multiple partly centrally depressed polycyclic or strongly margin stressed, erythematous skin lesions, generalized with the exception of the face, since ten years existing. The diagnosis of an annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma (AEGCG) was made by histology. In parallel, a newly detected diffuse B-cell lymphoma stage IVA Ann-Arbor classification with multiple lymph node, spleen and bone marrow involvement was diagnosed. During a therapy with rituximab the lymphoma responded well within 5 weeks, but the skin lesions did not improve markedly. © 2012 Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart • New York.

We report on a 32-year-old female patient with multiple clinically unusual in part cystic basal cell carcinomas of her face developing since approximately 10 years, glaucoma, square shaped scull with broad back of the nose and hypertelorism. Mandibular cysts, abnormal ribs and palmoplantar hyperkeratoses or pits and other known associated symptoms of the syndrome were not detected. Our case had an adenoma of the pituitary gland without increased production of somatotropin hormone. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG.


We report on a male caucasian 56-year-old patient who developed squamous cell carcinoma of the keratoacanthoma type five years after de novo occurrence of cutaneous malignant melanoma at the end of a 30 month period of treatment with TNF-alpha-antagonists. Because of a recalcitrant moderate to severe plaque psoriasis he consecutively received infliximab, adalimumab and etanercept. The patient before was treated over a period of 4 years with fumarates, and for 2 months with ciclosporine A and for 5 weeks with methotrexate. Two cycles of cream PUVA and UVB radiations have been applied before, respectively between systemic medications. Since the diagnosis of malignant melanoma further UV- and systemic immunosuppressive therapy was abolished and the psoriasis treated topically with calcipotriol and betamethasonvalerate. A possible causal connection between development of keratoacanthoma and immunosuppressive treatments is discussed in the light of recent literature. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart. New York.

We report on a 19-year-old female patient with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome (MRKHS), who developed within two months an alopecia areata totalis. This rare syndrome is presented and a possible relationship to the hair disease and therapeutic options including methylprednisolone pulse therapy are discussed. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart.

We report on a 56-year-old female Caucasian patient who developed within 6 months following a herpes simplex infection at the edge of her lip an atrophic hypopigmented skin lesion. In the further course an infiltrated erythema with polycyclic nodular margins developed. Histology revealed an epitheloid and giant cell inflammation with pronounced actinic elastosis. We made the diagnosis of an actinic granuloma of O'Brien.© Georg Thieme Verlag KGStuttgart . New York.

The treatment of solar urticaria is regarded as difficult. In some cases good responses to the anti-IgE antibody omalizumab (Xolair), approved for treatment of chronic spontaneous urticaria, have been reported. We report on a50-year-old Caucasian woman who for the last 5years has developed localized itching and stinging erythemas following exposure to sunlight accompanied sometimes by anaphylactic reactions. Oral antihistamines in three- to four-fold doses and atopical sun screen had been only partially effective in long-term use. Positive immediate-type reactions with whealing appeared in phototesting with low doses of UVB and UVA. Three weeks after s.c. injection of 300mg omalizumab, the minimal urticarial dose (MUD) for UVB was increased at least 20-fold (from <0.001 to 0.02J/cm
