Abstract

We report the development and treatment of eczema herpeticum in a 51-year-old male suffering from adult T-cell leukemia ATL. Lesions of eczema herpeticum coexisted with the skin lesions of ATL. Treatment of eczema herpeticum resulted in a concomitant improvement in the symptoms of ATL, including a reduction in the size of the ATL plaques, for over 2 months before relapse.
