Treatment with Doxycycline of Generalized Annular Elastolytic Giant Cell Granuloma Associated with Borrelia burgdorferi Infection

ABSTRACT

This is a case of generalized annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma (AEGCG) associated with borrelia infection and genes of p-30, p-31, p-39. A possible cross-mediated reaction from the T-cell type which might have induced the AEGCG is discussed from the concept of “heat-shock proteins (HSPs) and molecular mimicry”.

The Editor,

Sir,

Dercum’s disease is a rare disease that is characterized by generalized overweight or obesity, multiple, painfull fatty masses and a number of associated symptoms. The disease can be classified as Type 1 (juxta-articular), Type 2 (diffuse-generalized) and Type 3 (nodular). The pain is chronic (for more than three months), symmetrical and often disabling.
