During the treatment symptoms of the infection of upper respiratory tract appeared, which evolved to allergic symptoms and then to morbilli-like and mumps-like symptoms. The patient was hospitalized due to this disorder for two weeks, in the beginning on an isolation ward and then was diagnosed and treated on a dermatological ward. The diagnosis of the disorder was doubtful due to polymorphic symptoms and their evolution.
