Abstract

Background and Design: Erythema nodosum (EN) is the most common type of inflammatory nodules. Etiologic factors that lead to EN show a wide spectrum including drugs, infections, malignant and inflammatory diseases. The aim of our study was to investigate frequency of etiologic factors, clinical and laboratory findings of EN patients treated in our clinic, and to identify whether these findings were predictive for a specific etiology in these patients or not.
