Recurrent impetigo herpetiformis in a pregnant adolescent: case report.
Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol. 2002 Mar 10; 101(2):201-3.EJ

Abstract

Impetigo Herpetiformis is a rare pustular dermatosis that typically occurs in pregnant women with unknown etiology. A 17 year old patient who developed Impetigo Herpetiformis for the second time in the 27th week of her 2nd pregnancy is presented. The patient improved with corticosteroids treatment but the lesions did not clear completely and had flare ups during stressful periods which brings us to conclusion that Impetigo Herpetiformis at least has a common pathway with Generalized Pustular Psoriasis in the pathogenesis as stress provoked exacerbations.
