Papuloerythroderma of Ofuji (PEO) is a disease of elderly men, characterized by intensely pruritic and widespread, red, flat-topped papules with sparing of the body folds and creases (the so-called 'deck-chair' sign). The etiopathogenesis of the disease remains unknown. Psoralen plus UVA (PUVA), topical and systemic corticosteroids, etretinate, cyclosporin and interferon are the main approaches in the treatment of this rare disease. A case of PEO in a 60-year-old man who responded to retinoid plus PUVA (Re-PUVA) treatment is reported here and a review of the therapy with other relevant cases is presented.
