History

          A 4-year-old girl presented with a very painful and tender red swelling with a central pustule on the anterior aspect of the lower part of the forearm of three days duration. It was associated with a tender axillary lymphadenopathy. The lesion had been drained with a simple small incision under local anesthesia with an anti-staphylococcal antibiotic.
