f01: A. and C. Serohemorrhagic crusts on the nose and ear.B. varioliform pre-sternal lesions

Mentions: Skin examination showed that the nose and ears were covered with hemorrhagic/yellowcrusts and erosions (Figure 1). The dorsalsurfaces of hands were also strongly involved with hemorrhagic crusts and vesicles(Figure 2). There were also lesions on otherareas that were unprotected from the sunlight, such as the ankles and the presternalregion (Figure 1).
