Erythema Ab Igne: A Rare Presentation of Toasted Skin Syndrome With the Use of a Space Heater.

Cureus 2021 Feb 17;13(2):e13401. Epub 2021 Feb 17.

Internal Medicine, University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus, Baltimore, USA.

Erythema ab igne, also known as toasted skin syndrome, is an acquired asymmetric hyperpigmented dermatosis that is caused by repeated exposure to moderate heat or infrared radiation. Hyperpigmentation is caused by the degeneration of elastic fibers and basal cells resulting in the release of melanin. Historically found in bakers and industrial workers, this condition has recently resurfaced in medical literature with the use of novel heat sources such as laptops and heated car seats. Read More
