Papuloerythroderma of Ofuji (PEO) is an uncommon skin condition characterized by generalized itchy papular eruptions involving the entire body surface, sparing the major skin folds in the body along with peripheral eosinophilia often asssociated with an malignancy, infection or drug therapy. It usually affects the elderly and very few cases have been reported in young adults. We report a 31 year old male with PEO in the absence of an underlying inciting factor.
