Make the Diagnosis: College Girl’s Scaly Skin Scare

(MedPage Today) — Case Findings: An 18-year-old international college student went to the campus health clinic a few weeks after arriving from India. Before she left home, she had noticed some small brown macules that were widespread, primarily on her trunk. They were very itchy, but leaving the heat of India had helped and otherwise they weren’t a problem. She hadn’t had time to get to a doctor for a diagnosis while she was preparing to leave for college. Now, the lesions had developed an annular configuration and a fine scaly plaque, and the itching was bothering her once again.
