A 59-year-old woman of Indian descent presented with a 6-month history of an increasing number of itchy hyperpigmented nodules on her trunk and limbs. The lesions were preceded by pruritus. Treatment with topical 0.05% clobetasone butyrate cream and oral cetirizine reduced the pruritus but did not affect the appearance of the lesions.
