abstract

  • Generalized eruptive histiocytosis (GEH) is an exceedingly rare type of Factor XIIIA-positive histiocytopathy, characterized by symmetric distribution of red-brown papules on the trunk, proximal extremities, and face. It is diagnosed by the integration of the clinical features, light microscopic findings, and phenotypic profile. Herein, we report an unusual presentation of GEH in a 23-year-old man, who had a striking papular and erythrodermic component to his lesions.
