Papuloerythroderma of ofuji-is it a homogeneous entity?
Department of Dermatology, Venereology & Leprology, Mahatma Gandhi National Institute of Medical Sciences, Sitapura, Jaipur., India
A case of papuloerythroderma of Ofuji, who presented with erythroderma comprising of multiple coalescing papules, deck chair sign and eosinophilia, is reported. Parior case reports of this syndrome have variably mentioned associated features like lymphadenopathy, nailfold and buttock infarcts and palmoplantar keratoderma, visceral malignancies, laboratory features like circulating Sezary cells, and biopsy findings like exocytosis, vessel wall thickeningor extravasation of red blood cells, which were not evident in this patient. This inconsistency in findings points towards heterogeneous nature of the disorder.
