Pellagra was first described by Casal in 1735 as a disease due to the deficiency of niacin. Pellagra is more common in alcoholics. Chronic alcoholism and smoking are not uncommon in females of rural India. We report a case of a middle-aged female presenting with alcohol-dependent syndrome and pellagra.
