A 65-year-old female presented with painful reddish raised lesions over the left hand of 4 months duration following injury to the left middle finger. The skin lesions broke open to form an ulcer within a period of 2 months. Cutaneous examination revealed multiple discrete erythematous tender nodules of varying size over the normally appearing skin arranged in a linear pattern along the line of lymphatics extending upwards from the tip of the left middle finger to the lower part of the medial aspect of the left arm. A few lesions showed ulceration and crusting [Figure - 1]. There was no regional lymphadenopathy. Histopathological findings and lactophenol cotton blue stain findings are shown in [Figure - 2] and [Figure - 3].
