    Pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA), pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC) and febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease (FUMHD) are considered different manifestations of the same disease. Febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease is a rare, and potentially lethal illness which is characterized by fast progression of numerous papules that converge, ulcerate and form a plaque with a necrotic center, together with hemorrhagic vesicles and pustules that are associated with high fever and variable systemic symptoms. We report a 16 years old male presenting with erythematous papules with crusts and fever. Read More

    We present the youngest pediatric patient so far with febrile ulcerative Mucha-Haberman disease (FUMHD) after an admitting clinical picture of hemorrhagic varicella infection. With a time to diagnosis of 25 days, the 20-month-old boy responded to low dose cyclosporine and prednisolone given for 3 months and is free of disease after 4 years of follow up. We describe a polyclonal CD8+ T cell response with elevated pro-inflammatory cytokines and a fivefold upregulation of the high-affinity Fc receptor type I (CD64) on granulocytes. Read More

We report a case of FUMHD in an 11-year-old boy who subsequently developed neurologic symptoms and was found to have necrotizing vasculitis on brain biopsy. Over 5 years of follow-up, he had one biopsy-proven recurrence of his skin lesions and continued rehabilitation and treatment for residual neurologic complications. Read More
