Two patients with clinical and histologic findings consistent with necrolytic migratory erythema are presented. Unlike previously described patients with this disorder, neither patient had substantially elevated glucagon levels nor an associated pancreatic islet cell tumor. The cause of the skin disease in these patients remains unknown but may be related to the underlying small-bowel disorder present in both.
