Eczema, one of the most seen cutaneous diseases, is a skin disease occurring as a result of inflammatory response to endogen and exogenous agents. It can be localized or diffused. The sighting rate of the disease increases with the damage of the physiological barrier of the skin. It can be seen in everyone in whom an irritant material stays at the contact place in adequate concentration and adequate period. The most frequent seen areas are back of the hand and finger interspaces, it usually does not overflow carpus. The picture is seen very frequently in housewives and generally a topical therapy is adequate. We decided to report a case in whom we did not get any response to topical therapy, but achieved a good response with acitretin in a very short time.
