Febrile Ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann's Disease

Arch Dermatol. 1983;119(7):597-601. doi:10.1001/archderm.1983.01650310059012

• A patient with febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann's disease manifested the characteristic features of this entity. These include a polymorphous eruption with histopathologic findings of Mucha-Habermann's disease, large ulceronecrotic skin lesions, intermittent high fever, and constitutional symptoms. The patient was unique in that he also had malabsorption and eosinophilia. This disease may represent a hypersensitivity reaction. To our knowledge, there are five previous cases of febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann's disease reported in the world literature.
