Atypical Rosacea vs Bromoderma. Presented by Samuel Ayres, Jr, MD, Richard Mihan, MD.
A 50-year-old woman, the first of two patients to be described, had eruptions of the face that had been present for approximately one year. There was no history of ingestion of bromide. The patient took desiccated thyroid, 100 mg daily, for 14 years, and has taken conjugated estrogens (Premarin) for menopausal symptoms. Occupationally, she had been exposed to several types of cleaning sprays and used a commercially available scouring powder and ammonia in her cleaning.The eruption was confined to the face, being somewhat worse about the eyes and mouth, with diffuse flushing and a moderate number of small papules and papulopustules.
