ALBUQUERQUE, Vanessa Martins Ferreira de; CARDOSO, Alberto Eduardo Cox; MELO, Maria José de Medeiros Barros and SOUZA, Paulo Fernando de. Case for diagnosis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.2, pp.170-172. ISSN 0365-0596. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962008000200013.
A case of erythema gyratum repens is described in a 40-year-old man with a generalized, bizarre, figurated and pruritic erythema with fine scaling borders. Laboratorial exams and radiography of the thorax were normal in the first visit. A tomographic study of the thorax showed a lobulated pulmonary nodule and the immunohistochemistry on the biopsy of an inguinal lymph node confirmed the lung cancer as the primary site of the neoplasia.
