You’re looking at an interactive case study from Prognosis: Your Diagnosis (one of four distinct learning formats available in Clinical Odyssey). Try it out, and have fun improving your clinical skills.
A 15 year old girl of Peruvian origin presents with a 3 month history of a slowly enlarging erythematous plaque extending over her nose and left cheek.
The lesion started as a small, asymptomatic papule which slowly increased in size.
Her medical and surgical histories are unremarkable; her family history is significant for Discoid Lupus Erythematosus in her mother.
She spent her summer vacation with her grandmother in Peru and returned home 1 month prior to the onset of symptoms.
