A two-and-a-half-year-old female child presented with multiple round to oval, reddish-brown, slightly elevated, asymptomatic lesions since 3 months of age over her face and upper limbs. The lesions were initially few in number and gradually increased over a period of one year. On clinical examination, multiple, well-defined, bilaterally symmetrical, skin colored to pink to reddish-brown macules and papules of about 0.5 × 0.5 cm were seen over the face [Figure 1], ears, upper limbs, and distal aspect of lower limbs. Her family history, general and systemic examination findings were normal. Routine laboratory investigations such as complete blood count, liver and renal function tests, and lipid profile were normal. A skin biopsy was taken from the papule over the arm. On histopathological examination, the epidermis showed mild hyperkeratosis, and the upper dermis showed collections of multinucleated giant cells with multiple small cytoplasmic vacuolations, of Touton type with a few collagen bundles in between. Mild chronic lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate was noted in perivascular and periadnexal areas [Figure 2].
