• A 47-year-old man had a generalized, eczematous erythroderma and eosinophilia one week after a wasp sting. These changes persisted for four months despite intensive topical therapy and oral corticosteroids. He was then given corticosteroid pulse therapy with methylprednisolone sodium succinate (2 g, intravenously). One week later, a second pulse treatment was administered. This therapy was followed by permanent resolution of the dermatitis within two weeks.
