• We describe a case of papuloerythroderma. This is a distinctive clinical entity characterized by pruritus, red-brown flat-topped papules exhibiting the "deck-chair" sign, eosinophilia, and lymphopenia. We propose that the Langerhans cell may have a central role in the pathogenesis of papuloerythroderma and we describe an excellent response to photochemotherapy.
