Erythema annulare centrifugum is characterized by dermal perivascular lymphocytic infiltrates. It is often associated with infections, autoimmune or neoplastic diseases but in most cases the cause is unexplained. A case of erythema annulare centrifugum related to autoimmune hepatitis in a 24-year-old woman is described in this case report. Clinical response of the autoimmune hepatitis to a combination therapy with corticosteroids and azothiopurine was achieved. Although partially regressed for the first 12 months of theraphy, the skin lesions did not disappear completely. However, after 18 months of continious treatment there was no skin lesion.
