ERYTHEMA MULTIFORME: A CASE REPORT

Sri Devi K, Rama raju

Erythema multiforme (EM) is an acute self limiting, blistering and ulcerative allergic response of the skin and mucous membranes. This condition is usually associated with certain infections mainly herpes, medications and other triggers. It may be present within a wide spectrum of severity. The hallmark of erythema multiforme is target lesion with variable mucous membrane involvement. In erythema multiforme minor, only one mucous membrane is affected and it usually is the oral mucosa. Although many suspected etiologic factors have been reported to cause EM, EM minor is regarded as being commonly triggered by HSV. EM typically affects young individuals mainly 2nd to 4th decades. We report a case of EM in a 10 year old boy which is presented in association with HSV infection.
