This 9-year-old Chinese boy was noted to have streaky hypopigmentation over his body and limbs, both anteriorly and posteriorly, since infancy. There was no history of itchy rash, blistering, abnormal growth or hyperpigmentation over the site of involvement. He enjoys good health and is excellent at school. This 39-year-old lady noted a slowly enlarging asymptomatic nodule over her abdomen for the past two years. Examination revealed a hard, raised dermal nodule with surrounding induration. There was another similar but smaller nodule situated superiorly.
