Abstract

Sneddon-Wilkinson disease (SWD), also known as subcorneal pustular dermatosis, is a rare, chronic eruption that is often difficult to treat, particularly in patients who do not respond to or cannot tolerate dapsone. Few case reports exist of patients with SWD treated with antitumour necrosis factor-α therapy. We report two patients with SWD refractory to numerous treatments, who responded to etanercept (in combination with low-dose acitretin in one case).
