Current Concepts of Dermatitis Herpetiformis.

Acta Derm Venereol 2020 02 12;100(5):adv00056. Epub 2020 Feb 12.

Department of Dermatology, Tampere University Hospital, PO Box 2000, FIN-33521 Tampere, Finland.

Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) is an autoimmune skin disease that causes itchy, blistering rash, typically on the elbows, knees and buttocks. DH and coeliac disease share the same genetic background, gluten-dependent enteropathy and antibody response against tissue transglutaminase. DH is currently considered a cutaneous manifestation of coeliac disease, and the prevailing hypothesis is that DH develops as a late manifestation of subclinical coeliac disease. Read More

Dermatitis Herpetiformis Refractory to Gluten-free Dietary Treatment.

Acta Derm Venereol 2016 Jan;96(1):82-6

Department of Dermatology, Tampere University Hospital and University of Tampere, FIN-33240 Tampere, Finland.

Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) is a blistering skin disease, which is regarded as an extra-intestinal manifestation of coeliac disease. Refractory cases of coeliac disease, that do not respond to a gluten-free diet and which carry an increased risk of lymphoma, are well-known in coeliac disease. To determine whether refractory cases of DH with active rash and persistent small bowel atrophy occur we analysed our series of 403 patients with DH. Read More
