    Pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta after influenza vaccine.

    An Bras Dermatol 2015 May-Jun;90(3 Suppl 1):181-4
    Hospital da Polícia Militar de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, MG, BR.
    The etiology of pityriasis lichenoides is unknown. One of the accepted theories admits that PL is an inflammatory response to extrinsic antigens such as infectious agents, drugs and vaccines. In recent medical literature, only the MMR vaccine (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) was associated with the occurrence of this disease. We present a case of a male, 12 year old healthy patient who, five days after Influenza vaccination, developed erythematous papules on the trunk, abdomen and limbs, some with adherent crusts and associated systemic symptoms. This case report is notable for describing the first case of pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta associated with the vaccine against Influenza.

    Pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta: a rare association with the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine.
    Australas J Dermatol 2012 Nov 13;53(4):e76-8. Epub 2011 Jun 13.

    The aetiology of pityriasis lichenoides (PL) is unknown. One major pathogenic theory suggests that PL is a lymphoproliferative disease or inflammatory reaction triggered by an antigenic stimulus, such as a virus or other infectious agent. We report the second case of PL et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA) occurring after measles vaccination and the first following the combined measles, mumps, rubella vaccination. Read More

    Pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA), or Mucha-Habermann disease (MHD), is a cutaneous disorder evident with crops of erythematous macules and papules, usually on the trunk and flexural areas of the extremities. Its etiology remains unknown. PLEVA is speculated to be an inflammatory reaction triggered by certain infectious agents, an inflammatory response secondary to T-cell dyscrasia, or an immune complex-mediated hypersensitivity.
