Tsung-Ming Tsai , Kuo-Chia Yang , Tsung-Hua Tsai

An otherwise healthy 38-year-old man presented with skin lesions over his scalp and face of several months’ duration. The lesions were exacerbated after sun exposure. Physical examination showed many erythematous to brownish alopecia patches located on his scalp (Figure 1A) and atrophic plaques on his face (Figure 1B). Laboratory studies including hematologic tests, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, anti-nuclear antibody, and routine urine tests were within normal limits. Anti-dsDNA was 10 KIU/L (normal limit <10 KIU/L).
