A healthy-appearing, 30-year-old, postpartum Hispanic woman presented with a 4-month history of asymptomatic crusted nodules on her face and scalp that had recently increased in size and number. When the lesions first appeared, she was traveling in Mexico and reported self-limited symptoms of dyspnea, productive cough, and fever, which were not treated with any medications. She had no history of traumatic skin injuries to the area of the nodules. One month before presentation, she had a complicated delivery and placental examination revealed villitis, but the baby was found to be healthy.
