A 26-year-old woman had multiple itchy persistent gradually progressive papular lesions on the forearms and shins for 10 and 4 years respectively. She also noticed similar lesions on both the ears for 4 years. There were no systemic symptoms. Cutaneous examination revealed multiple 2-3 mm discrete firm hyperpigmented papules on the extensors of forearms, shins and earlobes. Skin biopsy from all sites demonstrated deposits of amyloid in the papillary dermis. The patient was treated with cyclophosphamide 50 mg daily orally. There was more than 50% improvement in her lesions.

Freckles are fairly common and considered to be incurable. We have developed a new technique called "Chemo-inflammation" with which we have treated 5 patients (4 girls and one boy) having extensive freckles with excellent results. All the freckles disappeared completely from the treated areas and there has been no recurrence so far. The technique consists of applying a liquid based on an alkyl sulphate, on the affected skin and repeating the application every hour for a day till the entire skin develops adequate inflammation. The liquid is then washed off with tap water and the skin is treated with topical (or systemic) corticosteroids till the inflammation subsides and the treated skin peels off and attains its normal texture. This generally happens within a week or so. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmemation has to be prevented by adequate anti-inflammatory treatment. Otherwise there are no precautions.

The swelling which was initially diagnosed as cervical lymphadenitis by the internist represented the enlarged left great auricular nerve. Cutaneous examination revealed an ill-defined, hypoaesthetic macule with minimal atrophy on the pinna of the left ear. The histopathology of the nerve showed a lepromatous neuritis with bacteriological index (BI) of 5+.
