Rosacea fulminans: two case reports and review of the literature.
J Dermatolog Treat 2019; :1-4JD

Abstract

Rosacea fulminans is a rare and severe inflammatory dermatosis which affects predominantly childbearing women. It is characterized by sudden onset and it usually localizes exclusively on the centrofacial areas, presenting with numerous fluctuant inflammatory nodules and papules which may coalesce. Treatment with isotretinoin in combination with topical and systemic corticosteroids is successful. Clearance of lesions may be obtained under systemic treatment with no or minimal scarring outcomes. Due to rare incidence its pathophysiological mechanisms, diagnosis and management remain controversial. We report two cases of rosacea fulminans arisen in otherwise healthy people and completely healed after treatment. Our aim is to share our experience about this disease in order to increase knowledge about its diagnosis, management and its treatment. We also make a review of the literature of this peculiar dermatosis.
