Abstract:
Al malignancies with skin lesions attending the dermatology and oncology OPD/ward were recruited after taking their written consent in vernacular language. A detailed history of skin lesions, malignancies, and treatment was taken. Clinical examination was carried out. Relevant investigations and biopsy were carried out as and when required. Being a descriptive study, age group and gender-wise frequency and percentage were calculated for the treatment of malignancies and dermatosis. Results: The study included 150 patients with 28 different types of internal malignancies, of which 127 (84.66%) patients were treated, 45 (35.43%) treated exclusively with chemotherapy, 16 (12.59%) with exclusive radiation therapy, and 66 (51.96%) with combined chemo and radiation therapy. Total 111 (87.41%) patients received chemotherapy and 82 (64.56%) patients received radiation therapy. Most common internal malignancy was breast carcinoma in 43 (28.67%) cases. Most common chemotherapeutic agent given was paclitaxel to 33 (29.73%) patients. Most common dermatosis associated with exclusive chemotherapy was hand-foot syndrome in 7 (15.55%) cases and with exclusive radiation therapy was radiation dermatitis in 8 (50%) cases. Conclusions: The study was useful in understanding various chemo and radiation therapy-associated dermatosis so that early interventions can be done to prevent further treatment-related adverse effects. Limitation: Small sample size and inability of pinpointing a single drug as the side effect....

Abstract:
Apeutic guidelines are established for this entity. There is paucity of literature on idiopathic calcinosis. We describe a girl child with extensive calcinosis in the skin and around muscle bundles without any clinical and laboratory evidence for etiological associations. Aggressive treatment modalities resulted a notable improvement in lesions in index child. Growing evidence will help to establish the ground for understanding and developing standard therapy....
