Abstract

COUTINHO, Jessica Castiel et al. Rosacea fulminans: unusual clinical presentation of rosacea. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.5, suppl.1, pp.151-153. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/abd1806-4841.20164943.

Rosacea fulminans or pyoderma faciale is a rare cutaneous disorder that usually affects women usually between the ages of 15-46. The disease is characterized by sudden onset of papules, pustules, cysts, and painful coalescing nodules with red-cyanotic centrofacial erythema. Although its etiology remains unknown, hormonal, immunological, and vascular factors have been reported. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment should minimize unsightly scars. We report a case of a 33-year-old female patient treated with traditional doses of doxycycline, with improvement of the lesions and regression of the condition in two months.
