18 Possible Causes for Maculopapular Truncal Rash

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    We report a patient with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who developed cytomegalovirus (CMV)-induced infectious mononucleosis-like syndrome (IMLS) while being treated with methotrexate and infliximab. She suddenly developed intermittent high fever and general fatigue with liver dysfunction, remarkable lymphocytosis and[…][]

  • Colorado Tick Fever

    In 5-15% of patients, a macular, maculopapular, and petechial rash is present. Occasionally, a small, red, painless papule (presumably at the bite site) is present.[] The distribution is often truncal, in contrast to the more acral rash in Rocky Mountain spotted fever.[]

  • Tinea Corporis

    The diagnosis of infiltrative basal cell carcinoma (BCC) can be delayed owing to its often subtle clinical findings. A 90-year-old woman presented with an asymptomatic annular pink plaque on her left shin that was clinically diagnosed as tinea corporis. After years of not responding to topical anti-fungal therapy,[…][]

  • Typhus

    Tick typhus causes hemorrhagic lesions over the skin. Retina also shows hemorrhages and exudates. Many cases have been reported in western literature about this condition. To our best of knowledge, this is the first case report of tick typhus in India which was also associated with inflammatory choroidal[…][]

  • Measles

    Measles, also known as rubeola, is one of the most contagious infectious diseases. It is a viral infection commonly affecting the pediatric population. The disease can be prevented by receiving vaccination against it. Preliminary signs and symptoms of measles begin to show effect after the 8 – 12 days of exposure to[…][]

  • Adenovirus Infection

    Infections with adenovirus (AdV) and herpesviruses can result in considerable morbidity and mortality in pediatric hematopoietic stem cell transplant (SCT) recipients. Herpes simplex virus (HSV) reactivations are usually prevented by acyclovir (ACV) prophylaxis, whereas cidofovir (CDV) has been used off indication to[…][]

  • Herpes Zoster

    Herpes zoster (HZ) is a neurocutaneous disorder due to endogenous reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV). The typical clinical manifestation is an acute segmental eruption of herpetiform umbilicated vesicles associated with malaise, pain, dysaesthesia, allodynia and probably fever. This review focuses on[…][]

  • Rare Form of Salmonellosis

    This paper describes a rare delusional disorder, the Fregoli syndrome, in a 17 year old girl who suffered from typhoid psychosis as seen at the Psychiatric Unit of the Jos University Teaching Hospital, Jos.[]

  • Aggressive Systemic Mastocytosis

    Mastocytosis is a clinically heterogenous disease characterized by mast cell hyperplasia in skin, bone marrow and/or visceral organs. Cutaneous mastocytosis is more frequently observed in children, whereas indolent systemic mastocytosis is more commonly observed in adults. Aggressive systemic presentation,[…][]

  • Herpes Gestationis

    Using a direct immunogold technique, we studied the level of immunological events in the skin basement membrane in a patient with herpes gestationis during blister formation. Within the lamina lucida, IgG and C3 were localized beneath the basement membrane of basal keratinocytes, 30-40 nm above the lamina densa. In[…][]
