PMID:  9094469     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE) associated with lung carcinoma is presented. A review of the literature revealed only 5 other cases of SCLE associated with internal malignancy. The tumor in the described case most probably developed before the appearance of the eruption. Cancer chemotherapy was followed by shrinkage of tumor mass and regression of the skin lesions. The sequence of these events corresponds to the definition of paraneoplastic dermatoses.
