Erythema multiforme was observed in 161 patients during a 3 month study accounting for 0.96 percent of all dermatological disorders. The severe form of the disease, Stevens- Johnson syndrome, was encountered in only 5 cases. In less than half the cases, it was possible to suspect a cause for erythema multiforme. Infections with beta hemolytic streptococci an.d aspirin allergy were most commonly incriminated.
