Author information

Department of Dermatology, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, MI.


We report two unusual cases of cutaneous lupus erythematosus presenting as dramatic eyelid edema and erythema. Neither patient had evidence of systemic or other significant cutaneous involvement. The eyelid edema and erythema were unilateral in one case and bilateral in the other. Both cases responded to therapy with antimalarial drugs.
