A. B.


History: This is a 71 yo Caucasian woman who was referred to the Dermatology Clinic with a 6 month history of an eruption over the left side of her nose. Before being referred, she was thought to have rosacea and was not responding to minocycline and topical medications. She denied fever or weight loss. Her past medical history was otherwise unremarkable.

Physical Examination: The patient's head and neck exam were significant for an erythematous, telangectatic, smooth plaque predominantly over the distal nose. No cervical or supraclavicular lymphadenopathy was appreciable.
