Editor’s Note: This month The Rheumatologist is introducing a new feature: Dermatology Case Review. See if you can diagnose the dermatological condition from the photograph and case history.
A 33-year-old woman presents with somewhat pruritic, nodular lesions worsening over the past three months in the site of a newly placed tattoo. The nodules are restricted to certain portions of the tattoo only (see Figure 1).
What is your diagnosis?
- Majocchi’s granuloma
- Atypical mycobacterial infection
- Hypersensitivity reaction to tattoo particles
- Hypertrophic lichen planus
