Erythema elevatum diutinum (EED) is a rare skin disease that initially presents as leucocytoclastic vasculitis and later resolves with fibrosis. Dermatitis herpetiformis is an autoimmune blistering disease characterized by granular deposits of immunoglobulin A (IgA) in dermal papillae. We report a rare association of these two disorders.
