1/4. Severe dapsone hypersensitivity syndrome.

It may cause a severe adverse drug reaction with multiorgan involvement known as dapsone hypersensitivity syndrome. We report the case of a 21-year-old female patient with dapsone hypersensitivity syndrome. The clinical presentation mimicked a viral exanthema.

One sister treated with etretinate had good resolution of skin disease. impetigo herpetiformis is probably a variant of pustular psoriasis and may be provoked or precipitated by factors, such as pregnancy.

3/4. dermatitis herpetiformis: oral lesions as an early manifestation.

    dermatitis herpetiformis is an uncommon chronic skin disease that rarely affects the oral cavity. An unusual case of dermatitis herpetiformis, starting with oral lesions 6 months prior to the onset of skin lesions, is reported. The diagnosis was based on the typical histopathologic features and on positive direct immunofluorescence. The literature is briefly reviewed. Evaluation of laboratory findings, clinical picture, and response to sulfones is essential to the final diagnosis and is emphasized.

    pemphigus-like antibodies were demonstrated in a patient with dermatitis herpetiformis. The patient was a 28-year-old Japanese who showed itchy tense bullae on the back, chest and shoulders.
