    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. The diagnosis of febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease was confirmed with the pathological study of the lesions. He was successfully treated with minocycline after a failed attempt of treatment with prednisone.
