The clinical and histopathologic features were characteristic and a Mantoux test showed a positive reaction. There was no extracutaneous focus of tuberculosis. Polymerase chain reaction for mycobacteria in the skin lesions was negative, but her lesions responded rapidly to antituberculous chemotherapy.
