In their discussion of the erythema multiforme group of dermatoses, Sutton and Sutton1 listed a subvariety: eruptive fever with stomatitis and ophthalmia, ectodermose erosive pluriorificielle, or dermatostomatitis. This syndrome has also been called erythema multiforme of the Stevens-Johnson variety; for it was Stevens and Johnson2 who in the American literature first proposed the designation of this group as an entity apart from erythema exudativum multiforme (Hebra). These authors introduced the disease as "a new eruptive fever associated with stomatitis and ophthalmia." However, similar cases have been described previously by Rendu3 and Fiessinger and Rendu4 as "ectodermoses erosives pluriorificielles."
