Abstract

A 16-year-old girl with polycystic ovarian syndrome presented with numerous rufous papules arising within a large depigmented macule that developed following a severe scald injury on the back. Histopathology revealed that many mature sebaceous glands were growing in the middle and bottom of the epidermis with slight acanthosis. On the basis of patient history, clinical manifestation and histopathology, we suggested that this patient's skin lesion be diagnosed as ‘sebaceous hyperplasia within epidermis after scald’.
