Kaposi’s varicelliform eruption (KVE) is characterized by disseminated vesiculopustules and erosions due to a herpes virus infection superimposed on a preexisting dermatosis such as atopic dermatitis. However, the occurrence of KVE in patients with multiple myeloma seems to be very rare; to our knowledge, only one such case has been reported. This report documents a second case of KVE in a patient with multiple myeloma. (J Am Acad Dermatol 2000;42:921-2.)
