Xanthogranuloma is a benign histiocytic tumor that usually affects children, rarely adults and in very few cases elderly. Xanthogranuloma can reach any part of the skin, with predominance in the face, trunk and neck, but it can be extra-cutaneous.
It usually regress spontaneously in children but it is not the case in adults.
We report a case of voluminous xanthogranuloma of the scalp in an elderly subject.

Traditional acupuncture is the insertion of needles transiently into the subcutaneous tissues at specific body sites. To potentiate the effects, implantation of needles has been developed for sustained stimulation. It is believed that the effects of acupuncture are pain relief and skin rejuvenation.
However, not much knowledge exists about the adverse events associated with insertion of gold needles. To our knowledge, scarring alopecia caused by permanent placement of gold needles has not been described in the English-language literature. Here, we report a case of scarring alopecia that developed after permanent gold acupuncture on the scalp.

Herpes gestationis, also known as pemphigoid gestationis, is a rare autoimmune blistering disease associated with pregnancy and puerperium.
Most cases are related to physiological pregnancies, otherwise, single cases have been described in association with molar pregnancies and trophoblastic tumours. We herein describe three cases of HP, two associated with a physiological gestation and one with a complete hydatiform mole.

Abstract

Immunobullous diseases are very uncommon in children. Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita are rarely seen in children. Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita is an acquired subepidermal blistering disease with variable clinical, pathological, immunological features. We are reporting a child with epidermolysis bullosa acquisita with overlapping clinical and immunological features of both bullous pemphigoid and chronic bullous disease of childhood with the poor therapeutic outcome.
