To the Editor.—
The case described in the February 1975 issue as acute eruptive Darier disease1 is, instead, a typical example of transient acantholytic dermatosis (Grover disease).2 Grover disease appears suddenly in an adult without a family history of similar skin disease and is characterized by pruritic papules, mainly on the trunk, that clear spontaneously within a few months. Pathologically, Grover disease resembles Darier disease.
