A 77-year-old man presented with generalized headache and burning pain in his left temporal area. Eight days after the onset of the pain, several facial lesions were noted. On physical examination, he was afebrile. An erythematous tender plaque was present on the left frontal scalp area. Three smaller similar plaques were present on the left temple and cheek (Figure 1). A biopsy specimen was obtained (Figure 2 and Figure 3).
