Abstract

In 15 years period (1989 - 2004) we have treated at our Clinic a total of 101 patients diagnosed with erythema nodosum which makes 2.9% of the total number of patients treated in this period. In order to explore correlation between dermatological and lung diseases we applied statistical analysis with respect to number, sex, age and irregularities occurring on the skin surface. Female patients dominated with 96 of them (95.6%) in the group, while only five patients were male (4.3%). This makes 22 : 1 scale in favor of female patients, as opposed to usual 5:1 ratio. Similar predominance (86%) was found in the study conducted by Mert and Gurkan (1.2). Average age of the patients was 41.6 years, which is slightly higher than the average of 18 and 34. The youngest patient was 17 and oldest 77.
