Abstract Adult-onset Still’s disease (AOSD) patients typically present with arthralgia, fever, lymphadenopathy and a transient salmon maculopapular rash. Only approximately 25 cases of AOSD with urticaria were described in the literature.

A review of the literature concerning this issue is also herein written.
