Conclusion: In spite of contact dermatitis arising due to masks, it is recommended to use well-fitted and comfortable masks for sufficient periods of time to reduce the risk of transmission, ensure safety, and reduce mask-related side effects.

Conclusion: The prevalence of onychomycosis is increasing and requires correct diagnosis since there are other non-fungal diseases of the nails that resemble onychomycosis. Presumably, the immunosuppression of diabetes, its systemic affection, and the foot abnormalities of a diabetic patient cause more nail dystrophy, an increased fungal load, and treatment resistance.

Conclusion: We found Trichophyton mentagrophytes the predominant pathogen in chronic dermatophytosis, followed by Trichophyton rubrum, which demonstrates a changing trend as far as the causative organism is considered. Besides, various risk factors for chronicity such as prolonged sun exposure, lack of proper hygiene, wearing tight-fitting synthetic clothes, the use of topical steroids, and non-compliance to treatment were identified..

Conclusion: Our series highlights the importance of diagnosing various atypical presentations of superficial dermatophytoses with respect to the presence of other superimposed dermatoses. The concurrent occurrence of two unrelated dermatoses in the same sector of an immunocompromised district of the skin is both a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for a dermatologist and one must always be on the lookout for such atypical cases in case of chronic and recurrent dermatophytoses. Antifungal resistant cases are an ever-rising phenomenon globally. An erroneous judgment in diagnosing such cases may add to this uprise of resistant fungal infections. Our series may be a useful tool for studies to come in the future aimed at exploring the same subject matter.

Conclusion: Our study suggests that CNV analysis would be required to reach molecular detection of epidermolysis bullosa. Especially for centers that already employ WES or targeted gene panels, we suggest extending their analysis to include CNV detection.

In summary, primary aldosteronism poses a risk of promoting an inflammatory state and autoimmune diseases. Therefore, patients with primary aldosteronism should be assessed for the presence of inflammatory skin diseases, including LLP.

Supplement COVID-19 Special Issue 

Santhanakrishnaan Soundarya, Srinivasan Sundaramoorthy

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.
