Abstract

Dermatofibromas are common benign fibrohistiocytic tumors that occur primarily as a solitary lesion, while multiple eruptive dermatofibromas (MEDFs) are a rare presentation of dermatofibromas and MEDFs are frequently associated with altered immunity, such as autoimmune diseases and immunosuppression. It is still unclear why MEDFs occur in association with these conditions, but this relationship may suggest that MEDFs are the result of an abortive immunoreactive process. We herein report on a case of MEDF that developed in a patient who was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus.
