History

          A 47-year-old woman complained of an itchy rash on her back and forehead of 2 years duration. On examination multiple, well-demarcated, erythematous plaques with irregular hyperpigmented borders and hypopigmented and even depigmented scarred centers with some adherent scales and excoriations were found. ANF and Anti-dsDNA antibodies were negative.
