BOUSQUET MUYLAERT, Bianca Pinheiro et al. Lupus tumidus: a report of two cases. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.5, suppl.1, pp.87-89. ISSN 0365-0596.

Lupus tumidus is considered a rare subtype of chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus, characterized by erythema and bright urticarial erythematous-violaceous lesions that leave no scars after regression. Histopathology reveals perivascular and periannexal lymphohistiocytic infiltrates in the papillary and reticular dermis and interstitial mucin deposition. Treatment is based on photoprotection, topical corticosteroids and antimalarials. We report two cases of lupus tumidus, which deserve attention for their low frequency in the literature, in addition to their relevance as a differential diagnosis among dermatologic disorders.

Keywords : Antimalarials; Autoimmune diseases; Lupus erythematosus, cutaneous.
