Gardner-Diamond syndrome (GDS) is a psychological and dermatologic syndrome involving painful, ecchymotic, purpuric lesions that typically appear after a period of stress or minor trauma. This syndrome most commonly occurs in young women, though it has also been less commonly reported in men and adolescents. It is an uncommon condition and appropriate diagnosis is important to properly manage symptoms and minimize risks to patients. Here report a case of GDS presenting in a woman with common variable immunodeficiency (CVID), which, to the best of our knowledge, is not a comorbid condition that has previously been reported in correlation with GDS.
