Rosacea fulminans in a patient with Crohn's disease: a case report and review of the literature

Acta Derm Venereol. Mar-Apr 2000;80(2):127-9.

Abstract

Rosacea fulminans is a rare disorder of unknown cause that mainly affects postadolescent women, with abrupt onset and disfiguring course if left untreated. The simultaneous occurrence of rosacea fulminans and inflammatory bowel disease is rare and has been reported predominantly in the setting of ulcerative colitis. We describe here a case of rosacea fulminans in a patient with Crohn's disease and discuss a possible association between the two conditions.
