Introduction: Erythema induratum of Bazin (EIB) is a rare tuberculid form characterized by hypersensitivity to Mycobacterium tuberculosis antigens. There are a few case series related to EIB in the literature. We evaluated the demographic, clinical, treatment, and follow-up characteristics of patients diagnosed with EIB.
