Synopsis

Erythema marginatum is a distinctive annular erythema found on the trunk and proximal extremities. It usually follows the onset of migratory arthritis, but it may occur months after the carditis. Ten percent (10%) of patients with acute rheumatic fever have an associated rash of erythema marginatum.

Rheumatic fever (and therefore erythema marginatum) is not common in adults; the majority of cases occur in the 5-15 age group.
