Abstract

We present a 12-year-old girl with skin lesions, arthritis and clinical response to tetracycline consistent with Mucha-Habermann's disease. She also showed serological evidence of reactivated Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection. We believe this represents the first such association of Mucha-Habermann's disease with EBV infection.
