Progesterone hypersensitivity: Case report with favorable evolution


Progesterone hypersensitivity: Case report with favorable evolution

Progesterone hypersensitivity or autoimmune progesterone dermatitis is characterized by heterogeneous skin eruptions that cyclically aggravate during the second half of the menstrual cycle, corresponding to a rise in the progesterone level. Clinical presentation is highly variable and includes all urticaria manifestations with or without angioedema, vesiculobullous, eczematous, purpuric or target-like lesions on the skin and mucous membrane. Both endogenous progesterone as well as exogenous progestogens may represent an initial trigger. We report a case of progesterone hypersensitivity in a 27-year old woman with favorable evolution only on topical therapy, the positive clinical outcome being maintained during a subsequent pregnancy and postpartum period.
