Abstract Erythema multiforme is a distinct cutaneous condition characterized by target lesions. Most cases are associated with HSV infection, which may be subclinical. When the classic target lesions are absent, skin biopsy may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment is directed at suppressing outbreaks of HSV infection and controlling symptoms during acute episodes.
