Grouped vesicles with centrifugal growth, with serous or hemorrhagic contents and symmetrical distribution were typical. Exulcerated skin and crusts were also seen, followed by residual hypo or hyperpigmentation. Even though, all the 14 patients were referred to Gastroenterology, only 6 of them pursue the specialist evaluation.

This group, were probably bothered by abdominal symptoms. Two of these patients had Celiac disease confirmed by the intestinal biopsy. The 14 patients had the typical deposition of IgA immunoglobulin in a granular pattern at the top of the dermal papilla in the basement membrane. Most of these patients eight had more than one direct immunofluorescence DIF examination to confirm this finding.

Since it is well known that DIF deposits can only be irradicated through a gluten-free diet for several years 1 , 2 , sampling and DIF technique may be a problem in our group. As reported in the literature, thyroid disease was seen in two cases and type I diabetes in one case. Regardless the evidence that a gluten-free diet alone improve or even lead to complete remission of skin lesions in DH, only one patient followed the diet for more than 4 months.

Tetracycline 2 g, together with nicotinamide 1. Over this 3-year period, several patients were clinically suspected of having DH because they present pruritic lesions on extensor areas, they were not included in this evaluation, even though some of them had some improvement with DH treatment, demonstrating that the skin disease may be more frequent than we suspect.
