Conclusion: We found no significant relationship between dermoscopy and histology, which might be explained by the small size of our sample. To our knowledge, this has not been described before in the literature and others studies with larger samples are necessary to determine the validity of ours results.

Treatment with systemic isotretinoin is an inexpensive and more effective treatment option for patients with resistant verrucae than conventional treatments. Systemic isotretinoin may be an alternative drug for the treatment of verrucae so long as its potential for teratogenicity is taken into account.

Conclusion: Because the world is now facing an emergency crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic, protection is of paramount importance so as to control the spread of the virus. Washing hands multiple times a day and the use of sanitizers and masks have become a part of the daily routine. A proper knowledge of the skin and of the adverse effects of personal protective equipment (PPE) will help patients in fighting against the pandemic without interruption.
Healthcare workers are more prone to various dermatological complications arising from existing diseases as well as to new skin eruptions. Poverty and the socioeconomic loss to the community and the government should be properly and carefully calculated and addressed so as to minimize mortality and loss of life. The world should unite without politics to conquer the pandemic and to save as many human lives as possible.

African histoplasmosis is rare in our country. We report a case of multifocal African histoplasmosis with peritoneal and pericardial involvement. A 27 year old man, a gold digger, consulted for disseminated papular and nodular lesions that had been evolving for 3 months. On examination, cachexia (body mass index 15.19kg/m2), cold abscesses all over the integument, umbilicated papules predominating on the face and ascites were noted. Paraclinical investigations showed neutrophilia, anaemia, hypoprotidemia, exudative ascites, pericarditis, severe pulmonary arterial hypertension, large 8-shaped yeasts of Histoplasma capsulatum var. duboisii on direct examination of the mycological specimen, confirming African histoplasmosis. Good clinical outcome was achieved with itraconazole. Severe malnutrition was probably a risk factor for dissemination of the disease.
