Scrofuloderma, also called colliquative
cutis, is a common form of cutaneous tuberculosis; it results from direct extension from an underlying tuberculosis lesion in lymph node, bone, joints, or testicles [1, 2].
The patient underwent diagnostic and operative laparoscopy: after having introduced the optic trocar, a mass with some colliquative
areas in the left tubal corner of the uterus, measuring about 4 cm, was seen.
During the 18-month follow-up, the patient developed melanoma satellite skin metastases, multiple colliquative
metastatic lymphoadenopathy (Figure 3), metastatic nodules in lungs, liver, spleen and bones, to dorsal vertebrae, with compression of spinal cord at D5 level, and pelvis, microscopically similar to the first metastasis.
The culture test resulted positive to Proteus mirabilis, Acinetobacter baumannii, Candida albicans, and Escherichia coli; the histological examination of the tissue removed from the left hip described a colliquative
necrosis, associated with widespread infiltration of granulocytes, abscess-like.
[ClickPress, Thu Aug 20 2015] RNAII for injection, one kind of immunomodulator, can improve body immunity and inhibit tumor by causing vacuolar degeneration and colliquative
necrosis in tumor cells as well as generating large amounts of hyperplastic fibroblasts, macrophages, lymphocytes or even connective tissue to substitute tumor tissue.
