LOPEZ COSTA, Carlos; GONZALEZ MORENO, Yoannys; ALVAREZ ALIAGA, Alexis  y  FROMETA GUERRA, Adonis. Mucha Habermann disease associated with a rheumatoid arthritis. Rev cubana med [online]. 2010, vol.49, n.1, pp. 97-104. ISSN 1561-302X.

Acute varioliform lichenoides pityriasis or Mucha Haberman disease is a rare cutaneous affection of unknown etiology, probably autoimmune, characterized by popular lesions of acute appearance with formation of pseudovesicles with central necrosis, sometimes with a trend to crusts. This is the case of a woman aged 36 with a history of rheumatoid arthritis admitted due to a cutaneous systemic eruption with formation of vesicles over erythematous arrangement, some underwent coalescence with crusts, a moderate pruritus and fever up to 39.2º; skin biopsy confirmed this diagnosis, skin lesions improve in a evolutionary way but with digital infarction typical of small vessels vasculitis supporting the polemic hypothesis of vascular origin. Patient evolved favourably with symptomatic treatment because of the disease has a self-limited and generally benign course.

Palabras clave : Varioliform lichenoides pityriasis; Mucha Haberman disease.
