Sorry, no etymologies found.
Occasionally a sycosiform eruption, usually of the side of the bearded region, leaves behind a smooth or keloidal scar, the disease gradually extending -- _ulerythema sycosiforme_ (lupoid sycosis).
These include chronic active hepatitis, chronic aggressive hepatitis, juvenile cirrhosis, autoimmune liver disease, plasma cell hepatitis, and lupoid hepatitis although autoimmune hepatitis is not related to lupus, an inflammatory disorder that affects the body’s connective tissue.
