An adult woman presented with a cerebriform plaque with sharply demarcated, pink, erythematous borders on her left leg (Figure 1). The patient revealed that approximately 1 week prior to lesion onset, she had come in contact with coral while swimming in Florida (Figure 2). Based on this information, a diagnosis of coral dermatitis was made, and treatment with a topical steroid was initiated to relieve pruritus.
