An otherwise healthy 57-year-old woman presented with several erythematous, annular lesions on her arms and legs. The lesions, which had gradually increased in size and number over the last 6 years, were occasionally pruritic. She had completed several courses of oral antifungal agents, which had been prescribed by her primary care physician, with no improvement. Her medical history was significant for a mild stroke that had occurred without any residual neurologic sequelae 2 months earlier. Her medications included clopidogrel and simvastatin, which she had begun taking shortly after her stroke. She denied having any systemic complaints.
