Subcorneal Pustular Dermatosis (SPD) is a rare, benign, relapsing, sterile vesiculopustular eruption usually associated with various systemic diseases including immune globinopathies, neoplasms, and autoimmune disorders. Clinically pustular psoriasis is a close differential diagnosis to SPD, but the latter is his top athologically characterized by sub corneal pustule filled with neutrophils. In this case report, we present the case of a 45-year-old woman diagnosed with SPD based on the characteristic clinical and histological features with underlying Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
