Figurate erythemas are a group of distinct conditions with different underlying causes and clinical presentations. They must be differentiated from a wide variety of dermatological entities including mycoses, urticaria, granuloma annulare, pseudolymphoma. Dermatologists need to be familiar with this set of conditions which include erythema annulare centrifugum, erythema gyratum repens, erythema marginatum, erythema migrans and necrolytic migratory erythema which are all important clues to underlying diseases.
