Cutaneous Toxoplasmosis Histologically Mimicking Graft-Versus-Host DiseaseVidal, Claudia I MD, PhD*; Pollack, Margaret MD‡; Uliasz, Annemarie MD†; Toro, Gustavo del MD‡; Emanuel, Patrick O MD*American Journal of Dermatopathology: October 2008 - Volume 30 - Issue 5 - pp 492-493 doi: 10.1097/DAD.0b013e3181837952 Extraordinary Case Report Abstract Author Information The dermatology service is frequently consulted to assess cutaneous eruptions after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. We describe a case of cutaneous toxoplasmosis in a stem cell transplant patient where toxoplasmosis trophozoites elicited a reaction pattern mimicking an interface dermatitis. At first blush, these findings may be misinterpreted as either a reaction to a drug or graft-versus-host disease. We hope that this case will prove helpful for dermatopathologists in asserting the correct diagnosis of cutaneous toxoplasmosis-if left untreated or treated incorrectly, this disease has a dismal prognosis.
