Acrodermatitis continua of Hallopeau (ACH) is a rare disease. Little is known about its etiology or relative effectiveness of the various therapeutic approaches. However, in the literature a pattern seems to be developing on successfully treated patients using biologic therapies. Here, we further emphasize the potential breakthrough presented by the novel immune based therapies. This report consists of a case of etanercept responsive ACH along with a brief review of the literature.
