A 25-year-old woman has suffered with subcorneal pustular dermatosis and a rheumatoid-like arthritis for the past 11 years. Both her skin lesions and arthralgia have abated with institution of dapsone administration and have worsened with interruption or reduction of the dose. The coexistence of arthritis and subcorneal pustular dermatosis and the response of both to therapy suggest a probable association.
