Erythema elevatum diutinum in a patient with human immunodeficiency virus.Cutis. 2001 Jul; 68(1):41-2, 55.C
Erythema elevatum diutinum (EED) is a chronic cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis. This rare disease is characterized by red, brownish-purple, and yellow papules, plaques, and nodules distributed symmetrically about the extremities. There have been recent reports of the disease in association with infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). We describe the case of a 51-year-old man with HIV who presented with EED, which was successfully treated with dapsone.
