AbstractDiphtheria is a re-emerging disease in resource-rich settings. We here report three cases of cutaneous diphtheria diagnosed and managed in our infectious disease department and discuss the determinants of its re-emergence. Migration, travel and vaccine skepticism are key factors not only for diphtheria re-emergence, but for the future of most preventable diseases.
