ABSTRACT: Wells syndrome is a rare inflammatory dermatosis clinically by recurrent itchy erythematous oedematous plaques with features resembling both urticaria and cellulitis and histologically characterised by tissue eosinophilia, oedema and flame figures. Erythema elevatum diutinum (EED) is a chronic localised from of cutaneous vasculitis clinically consisting of symmetrical papules and nodules most often on the back of the hands.
