17 Possible Causes for Degeneration of Epidermal Basal Cells, Syphilis, Tinea Corporis

  • Endemic Syphilis

    corporis Angular cheilitis Pyoderma Syphilis Syphilis Ecthyma Tuberculoid leprosy Tropical ulcer Psoriasis Pellagra Yaws Papulosquamous secondary lesions Dyschromic lesions[] Not to be confused with syphilis.[] In the early lesion, there is loss of melanin in basal cells and liquefaction degeneration.[]

  • Erythema Multiforme

    However, conditions such as tinea corporis, lupus erythematosus, herpetic gingivostomatitis, Behçet's disease and erosive lichen planus, among others, may mimic erythema multiforme[] Secondary syphilis, the hematogenous spread of Treponema pallidum, usually occurs 4-10 weeks after initial exposure.[] Pathologic findings include liquefactive degeneration of the basal epidermal cells, necrotic keratinocytes, and exocytosis of lymphocytes.[]

  • Actinic Lichen Planus

    Other conditions with similar appearance) Graft versus host disease Psoriasis, Guttate Lichen Nitidus Psoriasis, Plaque Lichen Simplex Chronicus Syphilis Pityriasis rosea Tinea[] […] reaction frequently are absent (Table 2). 2-4 Differential diagnosis of lichen planus actinicus includes discoid lupus erythematosus, granuloma annulare, melasma, secondary syphilis[] Histology classically demonstrates hyperkeratosis, epidermal thinning, vacuolar degeneration of the basal cell layer, lymphohistiocytic band-like infiltrate, variable Civatte[]

  • Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus

    SCLE: classic mycosis fungoides, pityriasis rubra pilaris, vitiligo, tinea corporis, erythema anulare centrifugum, granuloma annulare, erythema gyratum repens, psoriasis.[] One might, with reservations, compare such increased interest with that shown in the past toward the varied manifestations of syphilis.[] […] of basal cells; 4) a predominantly lymphocytic infiltrate along the dermal-epidermal junction, around the fair follicles and eccrine ducts, in an interstitial pattern; 14[]

  • Lichen Simplex Chronicus

    corporisTinea cruris • Nummular dermatitis • Sebrrheic dematitis • Lichen planus • Lichen striatus • Psoriasis • Stasis dermatitis • Alopecia mucinosa Diet / management[] Syphilis secondary period symptoms resemble psoriasis sometimes and called as psoriasiform plaques. Exact diagnosis should be done by serological tests for syphilis.[] Moreover, basal cell degeneration is confined to tips of rete ridges and band like infiltration is conspicuously absent in HLP.[]
