Question Explanation:

Vitiligo is a pigment disorder characterized by asymptomatic lesions that develop slowly over areas of the skin. The cause is unknown, but vitiligo occurs in people of all races and ages and often runs in families. It has been associated with immune disorders including Grave's disease, diabetes mellitus, and pernicious anemia. Herpes zoster causes painful vesicular lesions in a dermatomal distribution. Ichthyosis vulgaris is an autosomal dominant disorder inherited as scaly skin disease. Condyloma acuminatum are lesions due to HPV and manifest as single/multiple, sessile/pedunculated red papillary excrescences and occur on prepuce or coronal sulcus. Eczema is a chronic, atopic dermatitis characterized by pruritus, erythema, and crusting. Lichenification can be seen secondary to chronic scratching.

B. IgA deposition in the Stratum corneum.

C. Circulating autoantibodies.

D. Herpes simplex.

E. Celiac disease. ✅

Question Explanation:

The association of dermatitis herpetiformis with celiac disease provides a clue to its pathogenesis. Genetically predisposed individuals develop IgA antibodies to dietary gluten (derived from the wheat protein gliadin). The antibodies cross-react with reticulin, a component of the anchoring fibrils that tether the epidermal basement membrane to the superficial dermis. IgA deposits in the upper dermis in dermatitis herpetiformis.

B. Insecticide allergy

C. Sporotrichosis

D. Tetracycline drug-induced photosensitivity reaction ✅

E. Erythema multiforme major

Question Explanation:

This woman suffers from tetracycline-induced photosensitivity reaction. Tetracycline also causes photophobia and, if given again, can cause a more severe, prolonged course. Sporotrichosis is a fungal infection caused by exposure to thorns. The rash is not typical for Sporotrichosis. If the patient has this disease, treatment would be potassium iodide. Insecticide exposure would not cause photophobia. It would cause cholinergic symptoms such a pin-point pupils, dryness of skin, and palpitations. A contact dermatitis from poison ivy exposure would cause more pruritus, and the rash would be more erythematous. Erythema multiforme major is a dermatologic condition that also involves mucus membranes.
