Abstract

A patient presented with a typical pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA) and disclosed serological evidence of an active and recent toxoplasmosis. Specific treatment of toxoplasmosis promptly and definitively resolved PLEVA lesions. Serological tests for Toxoplasma gondii should be performed in all PLEVA patients.
