A 51-year-old African American man presented with a 2-month history of a painful, nonpruritic, worsening cutaneous eruption that had started on his lower extremities and had spread over his entire body. The patient, whose medical history was otherwise unremarkable, denied systemic symptoms and had not taken any medications before the onset of the eruption. His condition initially improved on a regimen of high-dose oral steroids (prednisone, 60 mg/d) but flared when the dosage was tapered.
