Erythroderma alters skin functions and subsequently may lead to acute skin failure.1,2,5 There are many causes which contribute to erythroderma. It might represent the worsens of pre-existing skin condition. These may include a variety spectrum of underlying skin disorders including eczema, psoriasis, ichthyosis, pemphigu onset of erythroderma. A shorter duration was observed in patients with drug-induced erythroderma and a longer one with erythroderma caused by malignacies. In 48 (52.2%) of the 92 patients, erythroderma began acutely.

Erythroderma is a potentially fatal dermatologic emergency that is often mistaken for infection. Indeed, the fact that it is difficult to diagnosis is the main contributor to its significant mortality rate, as treatment is readily available. We present a case of a 36-year-old man who was incorrectly diagnosed an ticipant should be better able to: 1. Identify erythroderma causes, symptoms, and diagnostic testing. 2. Summarize treatment and management recommendations for erythroderma. Erythroderma is a condition caused by several etiologies that result in red inflamed skin on 90% or more of the body surface. To optimize the diagnosis and management of the erythrodermic patient, healthcare professionals. Erythroderma is the term used to describe intense and usually widespread reddening of the skin due to inflammatory skin disease. It often precedes or is associated with exfoliation (skin peeling off in scales or layers), when it may also be known as exfoliative dermatitis (ED). Erythroderma Introduction: Erythroderma, or generalised exfoliative dermatitis, is a rare inflammatory disorder characterised by generalised erythema, involving more than 90% body surface area accompanied by a variable degree of scaling. Objectives: This retrospective study aimed to determine characteristics of erythroderma as a marker of cutaneous and systemic disease and to identify the underlying causes. Erythroderma is a term used to describe erythema affecting more than 90% of the body surface. The term exfoliative dermatitis is also used, and describes the exfoliation (skin peeling) found in erythroderma. The extent of the skin changes can obscure the primary lesion making it difficult to diagnose the underlying cause

Erythroderma is an inflammatory skin syndrome that involves desquamation and erythema of more than 90% of. Erythroderma is a rare skin disorder that may be caused by a variety of underlying dermatoses, infections, systemic diseases and drugs. We reviewed the clinical, laboratory and biopsy material of 97 patients diagnosed with erythroderma who were treated in our department over a 6-year period (1996 through 2002). The male-female ratio was 1.85:1 ERYTHRODERMA OR generalized exfoliative dermatitis is a striking but uncommon clinical entity in the practice of most dermatologists. Erythroderma is seen in the neonatal period, but it is most often seen in men over the age of 40 years. Erythroderma, like erythema multiforme and chronic urticaria,.. Leiner's disease (LD) is a rare and serious syndrome of infantile erythroderma of severe and progressive generalized seborrheic-like dermatitis, recalcitrant diarrhea, malabsorption and wasting, and recurrent local and systemic infections Erythroderma, defined as erythema and scaling over more than 90% body surface area is usually the result of eczematous group of diseases (40%), psoriasis (15%), drugs (10%) and malignancies (15%) in elderly patients. Rarely, it may result from other conditions such as pemphigus foliaceous (0.5%) dermatomyositis, scabies and lichen planus (0.5%.
Clinically, dry pruritic erythroderma with digitiform infiltrated areas on the skin of the back and wrists were observed as well as infiltration of the scalp giving a cerebriform appearance (Figures 1 and 2). Figure 1: Dry pruritic erythroderma. Further examination found skin cracks on the hand and feet with an erosive cheilitis (Figure 3) It is essential for paediatricians to recognise erythroderma and distinguish it from eczema. The aim should then be to search for underlying disorders, some of which have a specific treatment. However, for others, much remains to be done until curative treatment will be established for diseases such as Netherton's syndrome and the ichthyoses. Erythroderma is defined as an inflammatory skin. that it causes erythroderma. In infants, seborrheic dermatitis may pres-ent as thick, greasy scales on the vertex of the scalp (cradle cap).2,3 The condition is not. Erythroderma ( Table 1) is not a skin diagnosis but a clinical syndrome with many different causes. The common causes presenting to doctors in secondary care are psoriasis, atopic eczema, seborrhoeic eczema, other forms of eczema and drug eruptions. Erythroderma in the neonate may result from inherited disorders or staphylococcal scalded skin. Erythroderma is an inflammatory skin disease with redness and scaling that affects nearly the entire cutaneous surface. This term applies when 90% or more of the skin is affected. . In ICD-10, a distinction is made between exfoliative dermatitis at L26, and erythroderma at L53.9. . Causes. Erythroderma is generalized exfoliative dermatitis, which involves 90% or more of the patient's skin.

The most common form of erythroderma is erythrodermic psoriasis (EP), which accounts for 1-2.25% of all psoriatic patients, with a male predominance as demonstrated by a male to female ratio of 3:1  Erythroderma is a potentially life-threatening state of 'skin failure' in which patients are at risk from complications including hypothermia, fluid, and electrolyte imbalance, hypo-albuminaemia, cardiac failure and infection including septicaemia
Erythroderma is defined as generalized skin erythema affecting at least 90% of the body. This skin reaction is not specific for one diagnosis. Neonatal erythroderma is potentially life-threatening and presents unique therapeutic and diagnostic challenges. The differential diagnosis is broad, and many of the potential diagnoses are exceedingly rare INTRODUCTION: Erythroderma, first described by Von Hebra in 1868, is an inflammatory condition of the skin characterized by generalized erythema and scaling involving more than 90% of the body surface area. 1 Erythroderma is the final common pathway for a number of acute and chronic cutaneous inflammatory diseases. 2 The erythrodermic state is of great concern because it poses significant risk. Conclusion : Erythroderma is an emergency and may lead to undesirable complications and consequences. Hence finding the etiology helps in proper management of the patients. This study intends to throw light upon the various common etiologies of erythroderma. Key words : Erythroderma or Exfoliative Dermatitis[ED] , Aetiology , clinical feature

Erythema is a component of a very large number of cutaneous diseases including eczema, urticaria, psoriasis, infectious diseases, blistering diseases and. Erythroderma (exfoliative dermatitis), first described by Von Hebra in 1868, manifests as a cutaneous inflammatory state, with associated skin barrier and metabolic dysfunctions. The annual incidence of erythroderma is estimated to be 1 to 2 persons per 100,000 population in Europe with a higher male‐to‐female ratio Introduction: The diagnosis of erythroderma is frequently challenging due to subtle clinical and paraclinical signs necessary to differentiate between a variety of underlying dermatoses, infections or systemic diseases. The management is also difficult, with severe systemic complications that impose an early medical intervention. Objective: We aimed to analyze the epidemiological, clinical. Background: Erythroderma is characterized by erythema and scaling affecting more than 90% of the body surface area. Inflammatory, neoplastic and, more rarely, infectious diseases may culminate with erythroderma. Diagnosis of the underlying disorder is therefore crucial to institute the appropriate therapy.
