Pathology of Incipient Neoplasia, 3rd Ed.

Many malignant tumors have a morphologically recognizable precursor lesion. As screening and early detection have better our skill to discover lesions at more and more past phases of development, an elevated variety of precancerous lesions are noticeable through pathologists. regrettably, an absence of uniform histologic standards for precursors present in many organs could make diagnostic interpretation tricky.

In nodular prurigo the epidermal hyperplasia is exaggerated 3 and there are superimposed changes due to mechanical injury. Differential Diagnosis of Eczema These include psoriasis, dermatophyte infection, pityriasis rosea, pityriasis lichenoides chronica and premycosis fungoides. Chronic psoriasis may appear similar to lichenified eczema particularly if the typical Munro abscess of neutrophils in the stratum corneum is absent4.

1). A similar but less common disorder is X-linked ichthyosis. This is inherited as a sex-linked characteristic so that it is manifest in boys only, but carried by the female. This resembles autosomal dominant ichthyosis but is more severe, involving the flexures and the sides ofthe neck. 2). In recent years it has been found that patients with sex-linked ichthyosis have steroid sulphatase deficiency and a consequent accumulation of cholesterol sulphate in the stratum corneum. Although abnormalities in lipid metabolism have been identified in autosomal dominant ichthyosis these are non-specific and do not inform concerning the underlying fault 1 .
