Abstract

A 23-year-old woman was seen for widespread skin lesions present since the age of 2.5 years. Twenty years ago, she developed a brown macular lesion on her right buttock. The lesion became hyperkeratotic and subsequently spread through the posterior aspect of her right leg. It later spread to the right side of the trunk and to the right arm. When she was 9 years old, she developed similar lesions on her left arm and leg. After she was 13 years old, no new skin lesions appeared. There was no family history of similar lesions.
