Three-dimensional aspects of superficial disseminated porokeratosis with scanning electron microscopy.

Almeida HL, Abreu LB, Rampon G, Silva RM, Rocha NM - An Bras Dermatol (2014 Nov-Dec)

Bottom Line: On the surface of the skin, irregular keratin with a serpiginous distribution was seen.A gross aspect of keratin in the hyperkeratotic wall was also observed and compared to the normal area, in which the release of corneocytes seemed normal.The cross-sectional imaging easily identified the cornoid lamella, with compact keratin surrounded by normal stratum corneum.

ABSTRACT
The three-dimensional findings of the surface and from a cross section from a case of disseminated superficial porokeratois using scanning electron microscopy are reported. On the surface of the skin, irregular keratin with a serpiginous distribution was seen. A gross aspect of keratin in the hyperkeratotic wall was also observed and compared to the normal area, in which the release of corneocytes seemed normal. The cross-sectional imaging easily identified the cornoid lamella, with compact keratin surrounded by normal stratum corneum.

Mentions: The objective of this report was to demonstrate three-dimensional findings of a case ofDSP using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). We performed a punch biopsy from a61-year-old man with an 8-year history of renal transplant and hypertension. He washospitalized for pulmonary tuberculosis and presented the typical lesions of DSP, whichappeared 3 months after the transplantation (Figure1). A crosssection and the external surface of the specimen were examined.
