Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A patient is described in whom a papulo-nodular eruption occurred in association with systemic lupus erythematosus. Histopathology disclosed a diffuse deposition of mucin, mainly hyaluronic acid, in the dermis. This, and the 10 similar cases which have been reported in the literature, belong to a distinct clinico-pathological entity for which we propose the eponym of papular and nodular mucinosis of Gold, after the first observer to report it.
