  • Chromhidrosis: A Rare Diagnosis Requiring Clinicopathologic Correlation. The American Journal of dermatopathology Wang, A., Wysong, A., Nord, K. M., Egbert, B. M., Kosek, J. 2013

    Abstract

    : Chromhidrosis is a rare idiopathic disorder characterized by colored secretions most typically from the malar cheeks, axilla, or areolar regions. Histologically, chromhidrosis is notable for glandular structures with decapitation secretion indicating ectopic apocrine glands in the dermis, and the presence of lipofuscin pigments under ultraviolet fluorescence and in cytology smears. This case report describes a 26-year-old man who presented with a 2- to 3-year history of black-colored secretions on the bilateral malar cheeks, present on exertion or with squeezing of the cheeks. A 3-mm punch biopsy of the left cheek demonstrated histopathologic findings characteristic of chromhidrosis under hematoxylin and eosin staining and ultraviolet fluorescence. To our best knowledge, this is the second case report in the literature of an adult male being affected by chromhidrosis, and the first of an adult male with black-colored malar cheek secretions in chromhidrosis.

  • Pyoderma Gangrenosum-like Lesions in Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency I Treated with Intravenous Immunoglobulin PEDIATRIC DERMATOLOGY Nord, K. M., Pappert, A. S., Grossman, M. E. 2011; 28 (2): 156-161

    Abstract

    A 31-year-old Caucasian male with leukocyte adhesion deficiency I and a 20-year history of recurrent, painful cutaneous ulcerations on the extremities presented with fatigue and worsening pain in both legs. He had experienced minimal improvement in his leg ulcers from treatment with systemic steroids, numerous courses of systemic antibiotics, and brief trials of infliximab and mycophenolate mofetil. He was treated with monthly intravenous immunoglobulin infusions. Upon completion of six courses of intravenous immunoglobulin his ulcerations had nearly healed for the first time in a decade.

  • Acquired epidermodysplasia verruciformis JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF DERMATOLOGY Rogers, H. D., MacGregor, J. L., Nord, K. M., Tyring, S., Rady, P., Engler, D. E., Grossman, M. E. 2009; 60 (2): 315-320

    Abstract

    Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a rare autosomal recessive genodermatosis with an increased susceptibility to specific human papillomavirus (HPV) genotypes. Classically, this viral infection leads to the development of tinea versicolor-like macules on the trunk, neck, arms, and face during childhood, and over time, these lesions can progress to squamous cell carcinoma. More recently, an EV-like syndrome has been described in patients with impaired cell-mediated immunity. We describe two cases of EV-like syndrome in HIV-positive patients, review all previously reported cases of EV in patients with impaired cell-mediated immunity, introduce the term "acquired epidermodysplasia verruciformis" to describe EV developing in the immunocompromised host and examine the limited treatment options for these patients.

  • Glomus tumor masquerading for 22 years as osteoarthritis of the hip CUTIS Weiser, J. A., Nord, K. M., Grossman, M. E. 2008; 81 (4): 339-342

    Abstract

    Glomus tumors are rare benign mesenchymal neoplasms that account for less than 2% of soft tissue tumors. These neoplasms typically are small nodules less than 1 cm in diameter, associated with pain that is exacerbated by tactile stimulation and cold hypersensitivity. We present a case of a large glomus tumor of the left lateral hip associated with a long history of severe pain of the left hip interfering with ambulation. Chronic pain as a result of a subcutaneous glomus tumor is rare and frequently misdiagnosed. In the case reported, a solid glomus tumor presented with 22 years of unilateral hip pain attributed to posttraumatic degenerative joint disease. Excision of a 4 x 3-cm nodule resulted in complete resolution of tenderness and joint pain. Subcutaneous glomus tumors can have unusually large size and location and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of chronic, atypical, or treatment-resistant joint pain.

  • Genes and environmental exposures in veterans with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: The GENEVA study NEUROEPIDEMIOLOGY Schmidt, S., Allen, K. D., Loiacono, V. T., Norman, B., Stanwyck, C. L., Nord, K. M., Williams, C. D., Kasarskis, E. J., Kamel, F., McGuire, V., Nelson, L. M., Oddone, E. Z. 2008; 30 (3): 191-204

    Abstract

    Recent reports of a potentially increased risk of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) for veterans deployed to the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War prompted the Department of Veterans Affairs to establish a National Registry of Veterans with ALS, charged with the goal of enrolling all US veterans with a neurologist-confirmed diagnosis of ALS. The Genes and Environmental Exposures in Veterans with ALS study (GENEVA) is a case-control study presently enrolling cases from the Department of Veterans Affairs registry and a representative sample of veteran controls to evaluate the joint contributions of genetic susceptibility and environmental exposures to the risk of sporadic ALS. The GENEVA study design, recruitment strategies, methods of collecting DNA samples and environmental risk factor information are described here, along with a summary of demographic characteristics of the participants (537 cases, 292 controls) enrolled to date.
