Figurate erythemas are a group of dermatoses mostly developing in response to an underlying condition. They are characterized by erythematous papules growing centrifugally to form annular or polycyclic figures. Here, we describe a 16-year-old girl with EGR-like lesions confined to the dorsum of hands, present since she was eight years of age.
