The association of dermatitis herpetiformis and systemic lupus erythematosus.

Kurano TL, et al. J Am Acad Dermatol. 2010.


Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) is an immune-mediated cutaneous disease occasionally associated with celiac disease, but rarely associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The combination of DH and SLE is immunologically mediated and suggests a relationship between the two conditions. We describe a woman with DH and SLE with a novel HLA phenotype.
