Abstract

summaryA 24-year-old man with a 10-year history of easy bruising of undefined aetiology in anatomical sites consistent with self-infliction is reported. A young man with typical autoerythrocyte sensitization (AES), a rare syndrome, particularly among males, is described. The history, histology and positive ‘skin test’ performed by subcutaneously injecting autologous erythrocytes taken from heparinized blood confirmed the initial tentative diagnosis of Gardner–Diamond Syndrome (AES). Gardner–Diamond syndrome is rare and is reported here in order to draw attention to its existence.
