In this study, we investigated clinical features, aetiology, prospective follow-up results and also factors favouring secondary erythema nodosum (EN) in patients with EN. A total of 50 patients (mean age 38 y) with a diagnosis of EN between 1993 and 2002 in our clinic were included in the study prospectively. A biopsy was performed in 30 of the patients. Patients were considered to have secondary EN when an underlying condition was found, and to have primary (or idiopathic) EN when no such… Expand
Erythema nodosum: an evaluation of 100 cases.
TLDR
This study revealed that fever, leukocytosis, elevated CRP level, accelerated ESR, presence of cough, sore throat, diarrhea, arthritis, and pulmonary pathology were predictors of secondary EN. Expand
A Study on Etiopathology and predictors of Erythema Nodosum in a Tertiary care hospital of West Bengal
TLDR
The need of a detailed workup for all patients of EN is emphasized because it’s harbinger of common and treatable conditions and features like history of fever within last 6 weeks, arthritis, cough, chest X ray abnormalities & ASO titre were predictors of secondary EN. Expand
Clinical, Epidemiological, and Etiological Changes in Erythema Nodosum.
TLDR
The lowering in rate of fever, streptococcal infection, and joint involvement in patients with EN are probably explained by improvements in socioeconomic conditions and access to healthcare on disease presentation. Expand

TLDR
The conclusion is that the approach to patients with EN starts by a careful taking of patient history, with an emphasis on recent upper respiratory tract infections and occurrence of diarrhea, and the clinical approach accordingly standardized. Expand
