    Aceclofenac-Induced Erythema Annulare Centrifugum.
    Indian J Dermatol 2018 Jan-Feb;63(1):70-72
    Department of Pathology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India.
    Erythema annulare centrifugum (EAC) is characterised by slowly enlarging annular erythematous lesions and is thought to represent a clinical reaction pattern to infections, medications, and rarely, underlying malignancy. Causative drugs include chloroquine, cimetidine, gold sodium thiomalate, amitriptyline, finasteride, etizolam etc. We present a case of 40-year-old woman who presented to us with a 10 days history of nonpruritic, peripherally growing annular erythematous eruption.

    Bullous Pemphigoid Masquerading as Erythema Annulare Centrifugum.
    Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2017 Oct;25(3):255-256
    Sheng-Yiao Lin, No. 100, Tzyou 1st Road, Kaohsiung 807, Taiwan;
    Dear Editor, Bullous pemphigoid (BP), a relatively common autoimmune blistering disease in the elderly, is characterized by large, tense bullae on urticarial, erythematous, or normal skin. However, atypical BP with polymorphic clinical presentations is rarely encountered, leading to misdiagnosis and delayed treatments (1). BP with lesions resembling erythema gyratum repens or figurate erythema has been regarded as a paraneoplastic phenomenon (1). Read More

    Inflammatory and glandular skin disease in pregnancy.
    Clin Dermatol 2016 May-Jun;34(3):335-43. Epub 2016 Feb 11.
    Department of Dermatology, Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island; Department of Dermatology, Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, Rhode Island.
    A switch from cell-mediated to humoral immunity (helper T 1 [Th1] to helper T 2 [Th2] shift) during gestation plays a key role in placental immune tolerance. As a result, skin diseases that are Th2 mediated often worsen, whereas skin diseases that are Th1 mediated often improve during gestation. Also, due to fluctuations in glandular activity, skin diseases involving sebaceous and eccrine glands may flare, whereas those involving apocrine glands may improve during pregnancy. Read More

    Annually recurring erythema annulare centrifugum: a case report.
    J Med Case Rep 2015 Oct 22;9:236. Epub 2015 Oct 22.
    Department of Dermatology, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, via del Pozzo 71, 41100, Modena, Italy.
    Introduction: Erythema annulare centrifugum is a rare cutaneous disease characterized by erythematous and violaceous annular plaques that usually involved the thighs and the legs. The eruption may be associated with an underlying disease and its accompanying characteristic symptoms. For these reasons, a full physical examination should be conducted to exclude underlying disorders. Read More

    Possibly drug-induced palpable migratory arciform erythema.
    An Bras Dermatol 2015 May-Jun;90(3 Suppl 1):77-80
    Hospital do Servidor Público Estadual, São Paulo, SP, BR.
    Palpable migratory arciform erythema is an entity of unknown etiology, with few published cases in the literature. The clinical and histopathological features of this disease are difficult to be distinguished from those of Jessner's lymphocytic infiltration of the skin, lupus erythematous tumidus and the deep erythema annulare centrifugum. We describe here the first two Brazilian cases of palpable migratory arciform erythema. Read More

    [Effect of proteflazid on TLRs expression by mononuclear leukocytes of peripheral blood and epithelial cells of mucous membranes and skin in patients with herpes-associated erythema multiforme and erythema annulare centrifugum].
    Eksp Klin Farmakol 2014 ;77(3):28-32
    The article reports survey data on 23 patients with erythemas, including 19 patients with herpes-associated erythema multiforme (HAEM) and 4 patients with Darier's erythema annulare centrifugum (DEAC). Patients in the initial state (baseline) and after two weeks of therapy with proteflazid were characterized by measuring the levels of Toll-like receptor (TLR) expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and in epithelial cells of the throat and the skin. The TLR expression in PBMC and skin was assessed by flow cytometry with monoclonal antibodies (ICA) (Caltag Laboratories, USA; Hycult Biotech, Netherlands) against relevant antigens. Read More

    A new type of annular erythema with perieccrine inflammation: erythema papulatum centrifugum.
    Dermatology 2013 14;226(4):298-301. Epub 2013 Aug 14.
    Department of Dermatology, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Japan.
    Erythema papulatum centrifugum (EPC) was first described in 1962 by Watanabe [Jpn J Dermatol 1962;72:573] as eczematous lesions extending centrifugally. To date, more than 150 cases have been reported, but only in the Japanese literature. A review of the Japanese literature including our 5 new cases reveals that EPC occurs in middle-aged persons, predominantly in males, as a single lesion on the trunk that is self-limiting but recurs frequently.

    Erythema annulare centrifugum-like eruption associated with pegylated interferon treatment for hepatitis C.
    Dermatol Reports 2013 Jul 29;5(1):e1. Epub 2013 Jul 29.
    Department of Infectious Diseases and HIV, St. Michael's Hospital , Toronto, Ontario ; Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, 1 King's College Circle , Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
    Current standard of treatment for chronic hepatitis C virus infection requires the use of pegylated interferon plus ribavirin. Treatment with these two agents has been associated with numerous side effects, which frequently include dermatologic eruptions. We report a cutaneous eruption associated with interferon having clinical presentation of erythema annulare centrifugum. Read More

    Erythema annulare centrifugum in a patient with crohn disease.
    J Cutan Med Surg 2012 Nov-Dec;16(6):442-4
    Division of Dermatology and Cutaneous Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB T6G 2G3.
    Background: Erythema annulare centrifugum (EAC) represents a hypersensitivity reaction to a variety of conditions, many of which have been reported in the literature.

Subsequently, she developed sepsis and disseminated intravascular coagulation and died on the sixth day of life. Read More

    Erythema annulare centrifugum associated with herpes zoster.
    J UOEH 2012 Sep;34(3):225-9
    Department of Dermatology, School of Medicine, University of Occupational and Environmental Health, Japan.
    Erythema annulare centrifugum (EAC) presents as erythematous or urticarial papules, each with an annular shape, that exhibit peripheral extension. Internal malignancies are occasionally associated with EAC, and infectious diseases, including fungal, bacterial or viral infections, have also been regarded as possible causes of EAC. A 35-year-old man had a 1-week history of a painful vesicular eruption over the trunk corresponding to dermatomes Th8-10. Read More
