ID#: 21517
This close, right posterior view of a 4-year-old girl’s right upper arm, revealed the presence of numerous, fluid-filled cutaneous blisters, also referred to as vesiculobullous skin eruptions, which had been the result of a condition known as dermatitis herpetiformis (DH). These papulovesicular lesions are said to be intensely itchy, and are long-standing, being that this is a chronic condition. See PHIL 21515, and 21516, for other views of this patient’s condition.
