Most genodermatoses show single gene or Mendelian inheritance (autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive or X-linked recessive genes).OBJECTIVE:To asses the frequency of genodermatoses among Iraqi patients in outpatients Dermatology and Venereology comparison with other countries.PATIENTS AND METHODS:This case series descriptive epidemiological study included eighty three patients (57males and 26 females) with genodermatoses. They consulted the out patient clinic/ Department of Dermatology and Venereology Baghdad Teaching Hospital fromApril 2005 through April 2006. Their ages ranged from 2months-60 years (Median 10 years),With various genetic diseases.Full history, dermatological and clinical examinations were done to establish the clinical diagnosis of genodermatoses regarding all demographic points related to these disorders.RESULTS:The frequency of genodermatoses among outpatient attendant in Dermatology and Venereology Department was 83/ 20000 (0.42%).This study had shown that the most common genodermatoses were; ichthyosis: 21 (25.3 %) patients and epidermolysis bullosa which contain 16 (19.3 %) patients when taken together they constituted 37 (44.6%) patients of the total, neurofibromatosis 8 (9.6 %), hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma 6 (7.2%), darier's disease 5 (6 %) and xeroderma pigmentosa 4 (4.8 %).Positive family history of the same disease was obtained in; 8 (38.1 %) patients with ichthyosis, 4 (66.6 %) in hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma, 2 (12.5 %) in epidermolysis bullosa and all patients with Hailey-Hailey disease had positive family history of the same condition.Consanguinity was positive in; 13 (61.9 %) patients of ichthyosis, 12 (75 %) epidermolysis bullosa, 2 (33.3 %) hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma and (100 %) patients with xeroderma pigmentosaCONCLUSION:Genodermatoses are frequently encountered among Iraqi dermatological outpatients and more common in families with positive consanguinity and were comparable to other countries

Abstract

BSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Acneiform eruptions are common and important variants of acne vulgaris, there are many examples of acneiform eruptions like steroid acne and pityrosporum folliculitis. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the acneiform eruption that follows hair epilation.PATIENTS AND METHODS: This case-series study was conducted in Department of Dermatology and Venereology, BaghdadTeaching Hospital during the period from January 2005 through July 2006. Forty females wereincluded in this work, history was taken from each patient and all were clinically examinedregarding all relevant points to this condition. Swabs and cultures from rash were carried out on11 patients using blood, chocolate, and McConky agar as culture media. RESULTS: The ages of patients ranged from14-40 years with a mean ± SD of 20.85 ± 5.52 years. History ofacne vulgaris was positive in 32 (80%) patients, and it was mild acne, resolved before the onsetof hair epilation acne. Method of hair epilation was threading and sugaring.The time intervalbetween hair epilation and rash appearance was 1-21 days with a mean ± SD of 4.48 ± 3.36 days.Itching was the commonest symptom complained by 18(45%) patients.The lesions morphologywas mainly monomorphous erythematous papules surmounted by tiny pustules. Swabs andcultures revealed no pathogenic bacteria. CONCLUSION: Hair epilation by threading and sugaring is a common cause of monomorphous acneiformeruption and might be an important triggering and exacerbating factor for acne vulgaris in Iraqifemales
