A 65-year-old woman presented with mildly pruritic urticarial skin lesions that did not respond to treatment with antihistamines. Her medical history revealed that she had had chronic urticaria since 2001; restrictive myocardiopathy, probably due to a nonconfirmed deposit disease, such as amyloidosis; and chronic renal insufficiency with nephrotic-range proteinuria. She also hadself-limited febrile episodes with temperatures up to 39 °C, which occurred during the urticarial rash events.
