We were interested to read Cook-Norris and Weenig's comments on our description of 10 patients who, after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, developed a chronic eczema that was histopathologically characterized by features of both GVHD and dermatitis. We have described this eruption as an eczematoid form of chronic cutaneous GVHD.1 However, Cook-Norris and Weenig suggest that the clinicopathologic features point away from a chronic GVH reaction and argue that the dermatosis represents a papulosquamous variant of acute GVHD.
