A patient is reported with a recurrent skin eruption which suggested a reticulosis, lichen planus, or pityriasis lichenoides varioliformis of Mucha Haberman. Serological and immunological tests for toxoplasmosis were repeatedly positive which led us to postulate that the skin eruption is a nonspecific allergic reaction. Treatment with pyrimethamine (Daraprim) brought prompt improvement in the skin changes, as well as in the general condition.
