: Hypersensitivity to progesterone is a rare condition, and it represents a hypersensitivity reaction to endogenous progesterone. Here we report a case of a woman who presented to our attention for evaluation of a rash for a few years on her posterior elbows, forearms, and right lateral lower extremity. We report this case because it describes a rare clinical entity, with an atypical clinical presentation pemphigoid-like, that is rarely described in literature.

Abstract

: Hypersensitivity to progesterone is a rare condition, and it represents a hypersensitivity reaction to endogenous progesterone. Here we report a case of a woman who presented to our attention for evaluation of a rash for a few years on her posterior elbows, forearms, and right lateral lower extremity. We report this case because it describes a rare clinical entity, with an atypical clinical presentation pemphigoid-like, that is rarely described in literature.
