Wells syndrome is a rare inflammatory dermatosis clinically characterised by recurrent itchy erythematous oedematous plaques with features resembling both urticaria and cellulites and histologically characterised by tissue eosinophilia, oedema and flame figures. Erythema elevatum diutinum(EED) is a chronic localized form of cutaneous vasculitis clinically consisting of symmetrical papules and nodules most often of the back of the hands. We present a case of wells syndrome mimicking EED clinically.
