Tropical Eczema - A New Entity
P Nirmala Devi, G Sentamilselvi, C Janaki, V.R Janaki
April-June 2000, 45(2):62-65
A new entity named as tropical eczema has been described in patients uniquely presenting with pruritic, papulovesicular rash in summer months, the majority of whom was female in the middle age group. Morphologically, the lesions varied from erythermatous, moist, excoriated papules and papulovesicular dry, scaly, flattened papules and patches which chiefly involved the flexural areas, though others like arms, thighs and trunk were also additionally involved in many patients. Though the clinical picture resembled Grover’s disease (transient acantholytic dermatosis) in many aspects, the age group, the sex and the sites of chronic dermatitis with no evidence of acantholysis or dyskeratosis. Hence, this dermatosis has been labeled as “TROPICAL ECZEMA” for its occurrence in tropical climate with classical eczematous histology.

Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a rare heterogeneous group of disorders with a high incidence of cutaneous malignancies. However, malignancies of the mucosa are rare. We report a case of XP in an eight-year-old boy who developed squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the tip of the tongue within a short period of two months. Biopsy from the lingual growth and a papule from the face showed SCC. We report this case for its rarity and for rapidity with the tongue cancer developed.
