A 50-year-old female without any comorbidities presented with a history of skin lesions over the face, trunk, and limbs ([Fig. 1]) for 4 months with generalized weakness and weight loss over a period of 2 months. On examination, there were multiple erythematous skin lesions on the face that coalesced to form nodular plaque of varying sizes from 2 mm to 4 cm over the erythematous base with mild scaling and yellowish black crusting. She also had hyperpigmented macules over the trunk and limbs. Other findings were pallor and splenomegaly.
