T. Lazzari, A. Parodi, A. Rebora

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A patient with an unusual form of follicular impetigo, who later developed classical systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is described. When she had pyoderma, direct immunofluorescence and serology already suggested a connective tissue disease. Pyoderma could have been the presenting manifestation of SLE.
