GOICOECHEA-GARCIA, Miriam; SIERRA-SANTOS, Lucía  and  FERNANDEZ RIVERA, Alejandra. Mucocutaneous lesions indicative of atypically triggered erythema multiforme. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.2, pp.149-152.  Epub Sep 21, 2020. ISSN 2386-8201.

We present a clinical case of erythema multiforme. This is an acute dermatosis with polymorphous mucocutaneous lesions which are usually bilateral and symmetric. This usually has a benign and self-limited course. For this reason, treatment is symptomatic and resulting from different causes.

Rarely, a torpid evolution makes this condition a serious disease that requires extraordinary support measures like in Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Therefore, family doctors should know it and know how to treat it.
