Wells syndrome is a rare, benign, recurrent, inflammatory dermatosis affecting all age groups, with no sex predilection. Its etiology and pathogenesis remain unknown. Although its autonomous existence is questioned by some, Wells syndrome is a distinct disease entity diagnosed by the combination of a striking clinical picture, typical histological finding when associated to the clinical features, and a characteristic time course.
