Dermatitis herpetiformis is an autoimmune blistering disorder that is often associated with a gluten-sensitive enteropathy (GSE). The disease was described and named in 1884 by Dr. Louis Duhring at the University of Pennsylvania.It is also known as Duhring disease or Duhring-Brocq disease.
Dermatitis herpetiformis is characterized by grouped excoriations, erythematous, urticarial plaques, and papules with vesicles. The classic location for dermatitis herpetiformis lesions is on the extensor surfaces of the elbows, knees, buttocks, and back. It is extremely pruritic, and the vesicles are often excoriated to erosions by the time of physical examination.
