We describe a patient in whom two tuberculids, lichen scrofulosorum, and erythema induratum occurred simultaneously. 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. (J Am Acad Dermatol 1998;38:841-3.)
