Answer

Other disorders reported to be associated with erythromelalgia include the following:

  • Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)
  • HIV infection
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Astrocytoma
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Gout

Whether the above associations are coincidental is not clear. In one patient with SLE, biopsy results showed vasculitis, and symptoms resolved with immunosuppressive therapy. [21]

Reports in Europe and Japan describe cases due to the ingestion of different species of Clitocybe mushrooms. [22, 23]
