These 224 “misdiagnosed” patients had the following skin diseases: unclassified eczema ( n = 132), irritant contact dermatitis ( n = 11), allergic contact dermatitis ( n = 42), photosensitivity dermatitis ( n = 4), autosensitization
dermatitis ( n = 13), seborrheic dermatitis ( n = 24), lichen simplex chronicus ( n = 20), prurigo ( n = 2), corticosteroid-dependent dermatitis ( n = 2), unclassified eczema and irritant contact dermatitis ( n = 22), and unclassified eczema, allergic contact dermatitis, and seborrheic dermatitis ( n = 2).
Further, torsion in the prepubertal male does not cause autosensitization
and diminished fertility in adult life.
Gardner FH, Diamond LK: Autoerythrocyte sensitization; a form of purpura producing painful bruising following autosensitization
to red blood cells in certain women.
The psychogenic purpuras: a review of autoerythrocyte sensitization, autosensitization
to DNA, "hysterical" and factitial bleeding, and the religious stigmata.
Autoerythrocyte sensitization syndrome is a condition, usually occurring in women, in which bruising occurs easily, with the resulting ecchymoses tending to enlarge and involve adjacent tissues, causing pain in the affected parts; it may be a form of autosensitization
or may be due to psychogenic causes.
