Erythema annulare centrifugum is a reactive erythema of various possible etiologies including, although less often, an associated cancer. Cancer-related erythema annulare centrifugum is most commonly associated with lymphoproliferative malignancies, specifically lymphoma and leukemia. Malignancy-associated erythema annulare centrifugum is more frequently seen in women than men and the presence of skin lesions usually precedes the clinical diagnosis of the underlying malignancy. Neoplasm-derived erythema annulare centrifugum lesions often resolve following treatment of the cancer. Recurrence of erythema annulare centrifugum may occur along with the relapse of the underlying malignancy. Paraneoplastic erythema annulare centrifugum eruption (PEACE) is speculated to be a result of a cytokine or other tumor-associated factors.
