Febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha–Habermann

disease (FUMHD) is a rare and severe

form of ‘pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta’, with a progressive and potentially

fatal course. To the best of our knowledge, there has been no reported

case of FUMDH during pregnancy before. Due to life-threatening

nature of the

disease and the lack of evidence-based

treatment, management of FUMHD in

pregnancy is a therapeutic challenge. Additionally, some of the drugs that are

effective in the treatment are contraindicated in pregnancy. Herein, we report a



woman diagnosed with FUMHD in her 19th week of pregnancy and

treated with ceftriaxone and erythromycin.
