We read with interest the recent paper in this journal which sheds further light upon the reduced mortality observed amongst individuals suffering from dermatitis herpetiformis.(1) Whilst Hervonen and collegues corroborate previous findings of reduced smoking and lower rates of hyperlipidemia amongst patients with dermatitis herpetiformis, they do not account for socioeconomic class in their analysis. A retrospective review of case records previously reported the association of development of dermatitis herpetiformis with both reduced prevalence of cardiovascular disease and higher social class.
