Two cases of autoimmune progesterone dermatitis (AIPD) are reported. The patients developed a recurrent eruption, primarily on the extremities after receiving oral oestrogen/progesterone replacement for the treatment of climacteric symptoms. The diagnosis was confirmed in one of the cases who had intradermal progesterone injection producing an early positive reaction. One case required transient prednisolone therapy and both eventually resolved completely. Aetiological postulates are discussed.
