Two cases of recurrent Kaposi's varicelliform eruption caused by herpesvirus hominis in patients with Darier's disease are presented. Herpesvirus hominis was cultured in both cases. Only one similar case has been published in the past. The course of Kaposi's varicelliform eruption was mild in two successive outbreaks.
