The papules began from his bilateral eyelid margins and extended to his trunk and extremities. He also reported a 7-year medical history of polydipsia and polyuria. Physical examination revealed reddish-brown papules, nodules, and plaques on his periocular areas, perioral areas, neck (Figure, A), shoulder, axillary folds, cubital fossa, wrists, palms, umbilical region, lateral abdomen, inguinal area, anogenital area (Figure, B), popliteal fossa, and ankles. The patient had also been diagnosed with central diabetes insipidus, growth retardation, and hypothyroidism. A skin biopsy was performed at the time of the initial evaluation (Figure, C and D).
