Differential Diagnosis

History: A middle-aged woman had history of frequently recurrent erythema multiforme involving predominantly the extensor surface of the extremities of about three years duration. Initial attacks were more frequent and more severe and precipitated each time by herpes labialis. Acyclovir was given prophylactically and caused less frequent and milder bouts of erythema multiforme.
