Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH), a particularly pruritic bullous skin disease that predominantly affects the extensor surfaces of the elbows, knees, buttocks, back, and scalp, is one part of a spectrum of gluten-sensitive disorders that includes celiac disease (CD) and possibly some forms of IgA nephropathy and gluten-sensitive ataxia. It is the indirect consequence of a gluten-induced enteropathy. It is identical to CD in all ways except for its cutaneous presentation and the frequent lack of… Expand

Topics from this paper

Diffuse vesicular rash with intractable pruritus.
TLDR
An 82-year-old man presented with intractable pruritus of several months’ duration and a skin eruption, having noted 20 years of chronic diarrhea, which improved with a glutenfree diet, in addition to chronic renal insufficiency, hypothyroidism, and aortic stenosis. Expand
Autoimmune blistering dermatoses as systemic diseases.
TLDR
In patients with bullous pemphigoid, there is a greater prevalence of neurologic disease, possibly caused by cross-reactivity of the autoantibodies with isoforms of bullous lupus erythematosus antigens expressed in the skin and brain. Expand
Dermatitis herpetiformis. Part II. Diagnosis, management, and prognosis.
TLDR
Part II of this series will detail the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up for patients with DH, and will particularly focus on recent advances in the field. Expand
[Gluten-sensitive enteropathy: a disease to take into consideration - a case report].
TLDR
The aim of the case-report was to show that migratory arthralgias can be an extraintestinal manifestation of gluten-sensitive enteropathy. Expand
Celiac disease of the joint
A 42-year-old woman presented with a 3-week history of left knee pain and swelling. She had suffered dermatitis herpetiformis for 12 years, proved by skin biopsy. She had never been on gluten-freeExpand
Linfoma intestinal de células T en una paciente con dermatitis herpetiforme (enfermedad de Dühring-Brocq)
TLDR
The case of a patient withermatitis herpetiformis anceliacisease whoevelopeintestinal lymphoma is reported, with the risk for lymphoma increasing in bothermatitisHerpetiformIS anin celiacisease, preominantly T-cell lymphomas. Expand
Preliminary Notes on Equine Tissue Transglutaminase Serology and A Case of Equine Gluten-Sensitive Enteropathy and Dermatitis in an 11-Year-Old Dutch Warmblood Horse.
TLDR
This is the first study assessing TGA antibodies in sera from healthy non-gluten-free ponies and showing a correlation with age, and the presented case could be the first one of a horse with a tentative diagnosis of gluten-sensitive enteropathy combined with dermatitis. Expand
Hematologic manifestations of celiac disease.
TLDR
Patients with celiac disease are at increased risk of being diagnosed with lymphoma, especially of the T-cell type, and the risk is highest for enteropathy-type T- cell lymphoma (ETL) and B-cell lymphoma of the gut, but extraintestinal lymphomas can also be seen. Expand
Dermatitis herpetiformis
Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) is an uncommon condition. We describe a young boy who presented with pruritic, recurrent grouped fluid filled and papular lesions over the body. DH was confirmed byExpand
Epidemiology of Chronic Pruritus: Where Have We Been and Where Are We Going?
TLDR
An up-to-date summary of the epidemiology of chronic itch in different cutaneous and systemic conditions is presented and some of the most common causes of chronic pruritus are discussed. Expand

Childhood dermatitis herpetiformis.
TLDR
The true incidence and prevalence in the pediatric age group is unclear and has almost certainly been overestimated in the past because of failure to distinguish this disorder from linear IgA disease, or chronic bullous dermatosis, of childhood. Expand
Dermatitis herpetiformis: jejunal findings and skin response to gluten free diet.
TLDR
It is confirmed that most children with dermatitis herpetiformis have jejunal villous atrophy, though they rarely have gastrointestinal symptoms, and that a gluten free diet helps the damagedJejunal mucosa to recover and controls the rash even in those children who do not have an abnormal jeJunal biopsy.

Incidence of familial dermatitis herpetiformis

TLDR
Analysis of the familial incidence of DH showed that 13·6% of parents, 18·7% of siblings and 14·0% of children were affected, a segregation pattern which fits well to a dominant mode of Mendelian inheritance. Expand
Dermatitis herpetiformis--a skin manifestation of a generalized disturbance in immunity.
Detailed investigations on 42 patients with dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) are presented, emphasis being placed on the presence of other disorders having a prominent immunopathogenic basis. TheseExpand
Immunogenetics of dermatitis herpetiformis.
TLDR
Current studies regarding the role of HLA associations and DH are discussed and the strongest HLA association in patients with DH is with the HLA class II antigens DR3 and DQw2. Expand
Dermatitis herpetiformis: diagnosis, diet and demography.
TLDR
It is concluded that a gluten free diet is of therapeutic benefit in dermatitis herpetiformis and that spontaneous remission is uncommon in those not on a diet. Expand
Familial dermatitis herpetiformis.
TLDR
Despite the increasing knowledge among dermatologists that DH has an immunogenetic background similar to that of celiac disease (CD), it is curious that only a few reports exist on familial DH. Expand
Familial incidence of dermatitis herpetiformis.
  • L. Meyer, J. Zone
  • Medicine
  • Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology
  • 1987
TLDR
Evidence is presented that dermatitis herpetiformis is a familial disease, presumably because of shared genetic factors but possibly because of a shared environment, and that gluten-sensitive enteropathy is well known to cluster in families. Expand
Long-term follow-up of dermatitis herpetiformis in children.
TLDR
Treatment with a gluten-free diet alone led to a reversal of the intestinal abnormality in 100% of children and to the disappearance of cutaneous lesions in 82% of reported cases, suggesting that a complete remission of symptoms can be obtained with a GF diet alone. Expand
Natural history of dermatitis herpetiformis in southern Sweden.
TLDR
A retrospective clinical survey of 96 patients with dermatitis herpetiformis in southern Sweden found that DH seems to be less active the later in life it starts, and many mild cases of DH were observed without a gluten-free diet. Expand
