Abstract

Erythema elevatum diutinum is a rare, chronic cutaneous vasculitis that presents with plaques or nodules on the extensor surfaces of extremities. Although the exact pathogenesis is unknown, patients usually have an underlying systemic medical problem such as malignancy, autoimmune disease or HIV. Management of the cutaneous manifestations is aimed at controlling the underlying disease process, in addition to medical therapy directed at suppressing the lesions. The difficult case of a 60-year-old man, who was not a candidate for medical therapy but has undergone successful surgical therapy of this rare disease for 10 years, is presented.
