Source: MedPage Today Dermatology [2015.02.24]
(MedPage Today) -- A 48-year-old male presents with slowly expanding areas of discoloration on his anterior shins. He does not recall any antecedent trauma, and has been putting nothing on the area. The lesions are sometimes burning and painful, but are overall largely asymptomatic. They have been present for months.
Review of systems is unremarkable, with the patient denying night sweats, cough, chills, unintentional weight loss, or gastrointestinal complaints.
He has a past medical history of diabetes mellitus type II and is on metformin and follows a strict diet and exercise regimen.
