Conclusion: Leprosy in children is more common than is reported, especially in endemic areas. In <5 years, the disease is very rare. More than half of the cases of children with leprosy have a positive contact. It is considered that in <5 years the spread is always intradomiciliary; this shows the importance of monitoring contacts, which will be possible with the determination of all stakeholders in order to banish the undetected cases and prevent damage.

Conclusions: Authors report the case of a 14-year-old girl afflicted with a giant cervico-facial mycetoma. The patient was born to poor and illiterate parents in a rural area of the Diffa province, at 1500 km from the capital city of Niamey. Histological examination of a biopsy specimen allowed a diagnosis of actinomycetoma due to Streptomyces somaliensis. The patient showed a remarkable sensitivity to ketoconazole, but she ultimately died due to a lack of sufficient medication.

A 67-year-old Japanese woman referred to our hospital complaining of a reddish nodule on her vulva with four months history. Physical examination revealed a reddish nodule measuring approximately 20 × 20 × 8 mm on the right labia minora. A biopsy specimen from the nodule showed typical findings of SCC. Computed tomography (CT) scan showed no evidence of metastasis to the other organs. The tumor was completely excised by using the butterfly excision and both inguinal region lymphadenectomy. One year after the primary operation, CT scan showed multiple pulmonary nodules and they were diagnosed as multiple pulmonary metastases. The treatment with cis-daimminedichloroplatin (cisplatin) and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) (high dose FP; cisplatin 80 mg/m2, 5-FU 800mg/m2) was started.
In presenting case, the patient had treated with high dose FP and TS-1 as the additional chemotherapy after surgical treatment without radiation therapy, and her condition has been kept for SD for three years up to the present.
In conclusion, the regimen of combination with high dose FP and TS-1 might be new treatment option for advanced vulvar SCC.
