A young lady with facial asymmetry: a case of lupus profundus


LP Wong 王麗萍 and KC Lee 李景中

A 26-year-old lady presented with nine years' history of facial indurated nodule and subsequent facial tenderness, swelling and asymmetry. The histology revealed dense lymphoid aggregates with germinal centre formation in the subcutis associated with septal fibrosis, and hyaline type fat necrosis characteristic of lupus profundus.

一名二十六歲女仕因九年前開始發覺面部有皮下硬結,其患處繼而出現腫脹,觸痛感及不對稱現象而求診。 皮膚切片顯示病灶皮下組織有著密集的淋巴細胞聚集並形成生長中心,更兼有間隔纖維化和透明式脂肪壞死等深在性紅斑狼瘡的相關特徵。
