A 35-year-old male complained of recurrent crops of asymptomatic papules on his glans penis for the past few weeks. They ruptured, ulcerated and healed with tiny depressed scars.

On examination, he had multiple tiny ulcers, papules and pitted scars arranged in a more or less linear fashion on the glans penis near the coronal sulcus [Figure - 1]. There was no regional lymphadenopathy. He denied any pre-marital or extra-marital sexual contact.

All relevant biochemical and hematological parameters and X-ray chest were within normal limits. Smears from the ulcers and serum VDRL and HIV (ELISA) tests were negative. A biopsy from one of the lesions revealed tuberculoid granulomatous dermatitis [Figure - 2][Figure - 3].
