Abstract

A 33-year-old woman presented with recurring pruritic, erythematous papules around the mouth and on the hands, of 1.5 years’ duration. These flares typically began several days before her menstrual cycle and persisted for approximately 1 week. Physical examination revealed urticarial plaques on the neck. Due to the nature of the eruption, which corresponded with her menstrual cycle, a diagnosis of autoimmune progesterone urticaria was considered and workup pursued.
