A history of eczema, atopic dermatitis (regardless of disease severity or activity), or Darier's disease is a risk factor for EV, both for vaccine recipients and their close contacts; having household contacts with any of these conditions also is a contraindication Although no data exist to predict the risk for EV among such persons, before 1990, the incidence rate for EV after smallpox vaccination was approximately eight to 80 cases per 1 million vaccinations (8).

Further, because of the increased risk of inadvertent inoculation, people with other acute, chronic, or exfoliative skin conditions--such as burns, impetigo, varicella zoster, herpes, severe acne, or psoriasis--are also excluded, as are those with Darier's disease, a hereditary blistering disorder.

Darier's disease may look similar to cases of CARP without pigmentary change, but it often will have accompanying nail changes.
Darier's disease was first described by a French dermatologist, Jean D rier, and an American dermatologist, James C.
Rare consequence of HHD is squamous-cell carcinoma.[12] The differential diagnoses of Hailey-Hailey disease included fungal infection, intertrigo, psoriasis, extramammary Paget's disease, acanthosis nigricans, pemphigus vegetans and Darier's disease. Histopathology of early lesions shows lacunae formed by suprabasilar clefting with acantholytic cells either singly or in clumps lining the clefts.
Splinter hemorrhages may also be associated with mitral stenosis, vasculitis, cirrhosis, trichinosis, scurvy, chronic glomerulonephritis, and Darier's disease. However, due to the diverse and common causes of splinter hemorrhages, they cannot be used as an isolated sign of illness, except when they are accompanied by things like fever, Roth's spots, Osler's nodes, Janeway's lesions, or a heart murmur, since any of the above would greatly increase their significance.
