Quotation from the 9th edition of Lever's:
"At the time, [when Degos chose the name malignant atrophic papulosis (MAP)] the cutaneous lesions were then thought to be specific and pathognomonic for this unique disease entity (Degos' disease). Currently, such skin lesions are considered to be a clinicopathologic reaction pattern that can be associated with a number of conditions. Lesions similar if not identical to MAP have been noted in connective tissue diseases such as lupus erythematosus , dermatomyositis, and progressive systemic sclerosis, in atrophie blanche, and in Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease."
Reference in the 9th edition to concepts contrary by A. Bernard Ackerman et al. (ABA): None.
Statements contrary by ABA:
"Degos" disease is not specific unto itself, but rather is a pattern morphologic, the most common representative of which is lupus erythematosus"
Ackerman AB, Böer A, Bennin B, Gottlieb GJ. Histologic Diagnosis of Inflammatory Skin Diseases, 3rd Edition. New York: Ardor Scribendi, 2005. (www.derm101.com)
Other works of ABA in which the ideas contrary are expressed:
1. Ball E, Newburger A, Ackerman AB. Degos' disease: a distinctive pattern of disease, chiefly of lupus erythematosus, and not a specific disease per se.
