• Peripheral neuropathy occurred in a 32-year-old man who was receiving dapsone (Avlosulfon) for dermatitis herpetiformis. Neurological examination showed polyneuropathy that involved the median and ulnar nerves, with a lesser involvement of other peripheral nerves. After treatment with dapsone was discontinued, the neuropathy reversed itself, with practically complete return of function of all nerves involved.
