Degos’ disease is a rare disease characterized by pathogonomic skin lesions and frequently fatal systemic involvement. Death is most commonly due to intestinal perforation or cerebral infarction. The diagnosis and the treatment of the disease are extremely difficult when the predominant disease presentation is systemic. Herein, we report a case of 48-year-old man patient who was admitted to hospital with abdominal pain due to intestinal involvement of Degos’ disease. He had not got benefit from the repeat explorations and died from intraabdominal sepsis.
