Herpes Gestationis: Persistent Disease Activity 11 Years Post Partum

Herpes Gestationis: Persistent Disease Activity 11 Years Post Partum Abstract • A patient had herpes gestationis that had persisted for over 11 years post partum despite aggressive therapy with corticosteroids, dapsone, and various immunosuppressants. Postpartum exacerbation is a characteristic feature of herpes gestationis. However, it usually is of short duration and is responsive to conventional therapy.

Abstract

Abstract • A patient had herpes gestationis that had persisted for over 11 years post partum despite aggressive therapy with corticosteroids, dapsone, and various immunosuppressants. Postpartum exacerbation is a characteristic feature of herpes gestationis. However, it usually is of short duration and is responsive to conventional therapy.
