Pseudolymphomatous Reaction to Red Tattoo Pigment


Saulite, Ieva; Pekar-Lukacs, Agnes; Kerl, Katrin; Cozzio, Antonio; Hoetzenecker, Wolfram; Guenova, Emmanuella (2018). Pseudolymphomatous Reaction to Red Tattoo Pigment. Case Reports in Dermatology, 10(2):162-168.

Abstract

Decorative tattooing is a procedure in which exogenous pigment and/or dye is introduced into the dermis with the aim of creating a permanent skin decoration. The increasing prevalence of tattooed individuals leads to more reported tattoo-related complications. Pseudolymphomatous reaction is a benign reactive proliferation of lymphocytes that may uncommonly occur secondary to tattooing. We describe the clinical, histological, and molecular aspects of a pseudolymphomatous reaction to red tattoo pigment.
