Synopsis

Eosinophilic annular erythema (EAE) is a rare figurate erythema that may be a variant of eosinophilic cellulitis (Wells syndrome) or an adult presentation of annular erythema of infancy (AEI). EAE affects women and men, typically aged 30 and above, without consistent risk factors, known exposures, or ethnic predilection. Like other reactive skin conditions, EAE has been associated with and attributed to chronic infections (hepatitis C), chronic inflammatory conditions (gastritis, pancreatitis), and a variety of solid tumors (thymoma, prostate cancer), but is most frequently idiopathic. Typical lesions can be itchy, tender, or both.
