f02: Erythematous-brownish macules and residual hyperchromic macules in the back

Mentions: A 59 year-old male patient reported the appearance of erythematous skin lesions on thetrunk and upper limbs 20 years ago, which regressed after a few months, leaving residualhyperchromic lesions. He denied any itching in the lesions. During the examination hepresented with erythematous-brownish macules ranging from 0.5 to 5.0 cm in diameter,confluent, distributed in the abdomen, chest, back and upper limbs, and residualhyperchromic macules (Figures 1 and 2). Darier sign was negative and on the dermoscopy ofthe erythematous-brownish lesions, were observed thin and tortuous linear vessels, milderythema and fine pigment network, compatible with the patient's skin type (Figure 3). Histopathological examination showeddilated vessels with moderate inflammatory reaction around, mainly composed of mastcells, best visualized with Giemsa stain (Figures4 and 5). The patient did not hadlymphadenomegaly or bone changes, and laboratorial tests (blood count and chemistry)were normal.
