Erythema elevatum diutinum
Erythema elevatum diutinum presents as violaceous, erythematous, or brown papules, nodules, and/or plaques, predominantly over the extensor surfaces of the body. The most common associated symptom is arthralgia, although the lesions themselves may be painful or pruritic. Sometimes ocular abnormalities such as peripheral keratitis, panuveitis, and nodular scleritis have been seen. There is no racial predilection, but there is a slight female preponderance of disease. Incidence is highest in middle-aged to older adults, but may present earlier in those with HIV infection.
