erythema annulare centrifugum in a patient with crohn disease

Abstract

Background: Erythema annulare centrifugum (EAC) represents a hypersensitivity reaction to a variety of conditions, many of which have been reported in the literature. Methods and Results: We report on a 38-year-old woman with a 5-year history of recurrent polycylic, arcuate, scaly, erythematous patches with central clearing on her thighs and trunk. Clinical examination and biopsy were both consistent with a diagnosis of EAC. Two years after the initial presentation, she was diagnosed with mild Crohn disease. Conclusions: The prolonged nature of EAC in our patient and our inability to identify known associations of malignancies, including medications, connective tissue disorders, systemic disorders, and infections, led us to postulate that her EAC was related to her Crohn disease. A thorough review of the literature failed to detect any previous reports linking Crohn disease and EAC. Renseignements de base: L'érythème centrifuge (EAC) représente une réaction d'hypersensibilité à une variété de conditions dont beaucoup ont été signalées dans la littérature. Méthodes et résultats: Nous présentons un rapport sur le cas d'une femme de 38 ans présentant 5 ans d'antécédents de taches érythémateuses squameuses, arquées, polycycliques récurrentes avec guérison centrale sur les cuisses et le tronc. L'examen clinique et la biopsie étaient tous les deux compatibles avec un diagnostic d'EAC. Deux ans après la présentation initiale, elle a été diagnostiquée avec une forme bénigne de la maladie de Crohn. Conclusions: La nature prolongée de l'EAC chez notre patiente, et notre incapacité à identifier les associations connues, y compris les médicaments, les maladies du tissu conjonctif, les troubles systémiques, et des infections, des tumeurs malignes, nous a conduit à postuler que son EAC était lié à sa maladie de Crohn. Un examen approfondi de la littérature ne nous a pas permis de trouver des rapports antérieurs qui établissent un lien entre la maladie de Crohn et l'EAC.
