Papuloerythroderma of Ofuji (PEO) is an inflammatory skin condition with typical clinical presentation including generalized itchy papular eruptions, sparing the major skin folds in the body. They usually have peripheral eosinophilia and elevated serum IgE levels. This condition may be associated with an internal 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.
