The standard treatment of prurigo nodularis (PN) includes antihistamines, ultraviolet light, and topical and systemic corticosteroids; unfortunately, PN is notoriously resistant to the conventional therapy. Herewith is described one case of PN, which was initialized with herose as the first-line therapy resulting in complete clinical clearance. Results of follow-up examinations from 2005 to 2009 showed no evidence of recurrence. Findings indicate that herose monotherapy is a potentially promising therapeutic options for PN.
