A 73-year-old man was referred to our center for a papulosquamous eruption on his trunk that had been present for approximately 4 years. The lesions were fixed and did not cause pain or pruritus. A review of systems and medical history were remarkable for diabetes mellitus with moderate renal insufficiency, peripheral neuropathy, and an impending foot amputation for osteomyelitis and a nonhealing foot ulcer. There was no history of internal malignancy, and findings from recent chest radiography and abdominal-pelvic computed tomography were negative.
