Variable Response to Naltrexone in Patients With Hailey-Hailey Disease (Abstract)
Variable Response to Naltrexone in Patients With Hailey-Hailey Disease
Hailey-Hailey disease (HHD) is a genetic intraepidermal blistering disorder characterized by chronic macerated erosions in intertriginous areas. The recent report of 2 case series demonstrating the efficacy of low-dose naltrexone in the treatment of HHD represents exciting progress in the management of a disease with limited therapeutic options. Herein we present 3 additional cases of HHD demonstrating varying responses to naltrexone.
