Abstract

Acquired generalized hypohidrosis/anhidrosis is a rare condition of unknown pathogenesis, while idiopathic cholinergic urticaria is relatively common. We report the case of a 19-year-old male with cholinergic urticaria and acquired generalized hypohidrosis, and review previously published similar cases of this association.
