Dermatologist Hagedorn and pathologists Hauf and Thomas, all of the University of Freiburg, West Germany, present a monograph based on the evaluation of 704 cases. It deals with a relatively new concept of cutaneous paraneoplastic syndrome, an entity that had previously been expounded in the German dermatologic literature by Herzberg.
The authors divide cutaneous paraneoplasia into ten groups and devote individual chapters to their definition, pathogenesis, pathologic anatomy, and clinical picture. The chapters include the following: (1) acanthosis nigricans maligna; (2) ichthyotic and keratotic dermatoses (acrokeratosis Bazex, ichthyosis acquisita, tylosis palmaris et plantaris); (3) erythemas (erythema multiforme, figuratum, gyratum repens); (4) bullous dermatoses (dermatitis herpetiformis, bullous pemphigoid, pemphigus vulgaris); (5) acrodermatitis (chronica atrophicans); (6) diseases of hair (hypertrichosis lanuginosa et terminalis acquisita, mucinosis follicularis); (7) disturbances of pigment; (8) diseases of blood vessels of the skin (thrombophlebitis migrans); (9) collagen diseases (dermatomyositis, lupus erythematosus); and (10) metabolic disturbances (porphyria cutanea
