ACC Chen 陳之傑, S Lee 李啟焱, RCF Chan 曾彩鳳, JYJ Choi 崔榮埈


We report a case of idiopathic Wells' syndrome in a 52-year-old male, who presented with pruritic, erythema tous and annular plaques on his lower limbs, trunk and upper limbs. Histology revealed a dermal infiltrate of eosinophils with flame figures, consistent with Wells' syndrome. The lesions were resistant to treatment with prednisone, antihistamine and topical steroids, but resolved spontaneously after seven years.
