Zusammenfassung

1971 wurden von G. Wells unter der Bezeichnung „recurrent granulomatous dermatitis with eosinophilia“ 4 Patienten mit ungewöhnlichen rezidivierenden kutanen Ödemen beschrieben [26]. Die Erkrankung dauerte einige Jahre und war in der Spätphase durch derbe Induration geprägt. Hautbiopsien von diesen Patienten zeigten ein charakteristisches histologisches Bild.
