Abstract

Unusual discrete palmar and plantar symptoms observed in thirty of forty-seven children with dermatitis herpetiformis are described. The diagnosis was verified in every case by the demonstration of granular IgA deposits in the skin. Forty-five of the children showed villous atrophy in jejunal biopsy specimens. In four cases extensive, exudative, bullous palmar symptoms, similar mild plantar changes, and healing with desquamation were observed. At least once during treatment we found very discrete, reddish-brown spots or small blisters on the flexor surface of the fingers and on the palms in thirty patients. Similar lesions occurred on the soles and plantar surface of the toes in only three patients. In asymptomatic patients and those treated with either a gluten-free diet or sulfone/sulfapyridine, the phenomenon was not manifest.
