A 33-year-old man presented with painful, skin-colored lesions of 15-year duration on the right half of upper back. He had developed similar lesions on both shoulders over the past 2 years. There were episodes of pain in the lesions, aggravated on exposure to cold, touch, and physical stress.
His general physical and systemic examinations were within normal limits. Dermatological examination revealed multiple skin-colored erythematous, firm, tender, nodular lesions, varying in size from 2 to 5 cm, arranged in zosteriform pattern over right scapular and interscapular areas [Figure - 1]. Few lesions were present on the shoulders. An exicision biopsy was done from the lesion on the shoulder and histopathological findings are presented in [Figure - 2].
