A young girl presented to establish care for skin lesions on her trunk and extremities that had been present since birth. Her mother described an intermittent inflammatory reaction localized only to the patient’s abnormal skin lesions that was reproducible in febrile states and was concerned about asymptomatic, stable, dark brown lesions that had developed in areas of prior blistering and scarring on the patient’s right arm, left knee, and right upper back. There was no history of developmental delay, eye abnormalities, or seizures.
