Dr. Michael Benzaquen completed medical education at the Faculty of Medicine of Marseille, Aix-Marseille University (Marseille, France), and ranked first among 3000 students in the first year of medical school. He then completed his residency in Dermatology at Assistance Publique Hôpitaux de Marseille, before a fellowship in the department of Dermatology at Hôpital Nord de Marseille. His professional experiences abroad in Columbia University (New York City, USA) and Inselspital - University Hospital of Bern (Bern, Switzerland) improved his clinical skills and knowledge in Dermatology, as well as his success in ECFMG certification. He graduated from several inter-university diplomas in Internal Medicine, Pediatric Dermatology, Dermatological Laser and Dermatological Surgery. As an active member of the French Society of Dermatology and the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, he is invited as speaker in many international congresses. His works have been published in international peer-reviewed journals. He notably investigated about infectious diseases with cutaneous manifestations (Dirofilariasis, Nocardiosis, syphilis, scabies), as well as systemic and inflammatory diseases (dermatomyositis, vasculitis, pyoderma gangrenosum, bullous pemphigoid). As a member of the French Laser Group, he encouraged young dermatologists in learning and practicing dermatological lasers.

Primary cutaneous nocardiosis caused by Nocardia takedensis with pulmonary dissemination in an immunosuppressed patient.

Aug, 2017

We present a remarkable case of primary cutaneous nocardiosis with pulmonary dissemination due to Nocardia takedensis in a 76-year-old man suffering from marginal zone lymphoma and hypogammaglobulinaemia. We also discuss an alternative treatment to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, which could be contraindicated due to haematological and cutaneous toxicities. This case report is of interest due to the emergence of cutaneous nocardiosis in dermatology. read more
