Two cases of erythema exsudativum multiforme associated with Chlamydia pneumoniae infection.

Abstract

We report two cases of erythema exsudativum multiforme (EEM) that we concluded were caused by infections with Chlamydia pneumoniae. High titers of IgG antibody for Chlamydia pneumoniae were shown in the sera of both cases. One case showed the classical symptoms of pneumonia together with radiological changes in the chest; the other case did not show these symptoms. To the best of our knowledge, only three cases of erythema multiforme associated with Chlamydia pneumoniae infection have been reported.
