We report the association of erythema elevatum diutinum (EED) with ulcerative colitis (UC). The patient, whose history included rheumatoid disease, diabetes mellitus (type I) and hypothyroidism developed EED during a severe acute exacerbation of UC which resolved following colectomy. To our knowledge this is the first report of such an association. Also of interest was the observation of Köebner phenomenon occurring at the sites where blood vessels were damaged.
