A woman in her 60s presented with a painful skin eruption on the vulva of 2 months’ duration. The patient had a history of rectal carcinoma with lymph node metastasis and 2 years prior had received low anterior resection plus postoperative chemotherapy (6 cycles of oxaliplatin, calcium folinate, and tegafur). A physical examination revealed well-defined, firm, indurated plaques on the vulva with nodules on the surface (Figure 1A). A biopsy of the left vulva was performed (Figure 1B and C).
