The authors describe a case of a 67-year-old man with typical lesions of erythema elevatumdiutinum involving also oral mucosa and showing Koebner's isomorphic phenomenon. Beforepresentation the patient suffered from exulcerated plaques with seropurulent secretion which leftmacular hypo- and hyper-pigmented areas on extensor sites of the limbs resembling pyodermagangrenosum scars. During the treatment with diaminodiphenylsulphone melena occurred, whichcould represent a side effect of sulfone (unpublished observation). Therapy with OH-chloroquineand prednison had only a partial effect on clinical symptomatology.

Key words:
erythema elevatum diutinum - mucosal lesion - Koebner's phenomenon - pyodermagangrenosum - diamindiphenylsulphone - melena
