NECROLYTIC MIGRATING ERYTHEMA
- Necrolytic migratory erythema (NME) is a red, blistering rash that spreads across the skin. It particularly affects the skin around the mouth and distal extremities; but may also be found on the lower abdomen, buttocks, perineum, and groin. It is strongly associated with glucagonoma, a glucagon-producing tumor of the pancreas, but is also seen in a number of other conditions including liver disease and intestinal malabsorption.
- NME features a characteristic skin eruption of red patches with irregular borders, intact and ruptured vesicles, and crust formation.
- It commonly affects the limbs and skin surrounding the lips, although less commonly the abdomen, perineum, thighs, buttocks, and groin may be affected.
- Frequently these areas may be left dry or fissured as a result. All stages of lesion development may be observed synchronously
