Erythema multiforme (EM) is a rare cutaneous or mucocutaneous reaction characterized by “target” lesions, mainly of the face and extremities. The disease is more common in boys and young people than in other subjects. It is benign but can be recurrent, there may be complications, especially in the eyes. Most cases are related to infections, especially herpes simplex virus (HSV) and Mycoplasma pneumoniae, while drug-induced EM is rare. We report a case of recurrent erythema multiforme in a young woman, possibly related to HSV.
