• We report seven cases of transient acantholytic dermatosis (Grover's disease) to exemplify a causal association with heat and sweating. The excessive heat and sweating was related to the use of a hot tub, a hot water bottle, a steam bath, an electric blanket, the prolonged wearing of a polyester suit, and postoperative bed confinement.
