Article

Summary

Paraproteinaemia (IgGkappa) was observed in a 68 year-old patient with erythema elevatum diutinum. The association of this skin disease with paraproteinaemia as already reported by other authors may indicate a pathogenetic relationship.

Key words

Paraproteinaemia Erythema elevatum diutinum 

Zusammenfassung

Bei einem 68 jährigen Patienten mit Erythema elevatum diutinum wurde eine Paraproteinämie (IgGkappa) festgestellt. Die Assoziation dieser Hautkrankheit mit einer Paraproteinämie, die schon von anderen Autoren beschrieben wurde, deutet auf einen möglichen pathogenetischen Zusammenhang.
