Rare, chronic, papulo-vesicular disease characterized by an intensely pruritic eruption consisting of various combinations of symmetrical, erythematous, papular, vesicular, or bullous lesions. The disease is strongly associated with the presence of HLA-B8 and HLA-DR3 antigens. A variety of different autoantibodies has been detected in small numbers in patients with dermatitis herpetiformis. - (Source - Diseases Database)

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Dermatitis herpetiformis as a "rare disease".
