A 18-year-old male patient went to see his private practitioner for treatment of acne vuglaris. Within two weeks, he developed this haemorrhagic, severely disfiguring nodular eruptions with crusted erosions involving his face, chest and back. He was afebrile and routine haematology and blood biochemistry were all normal. A 14-year-old male student attended the male social hygiene clinic with this dusky red, erythematous, raised grouped lesions on his genitalia. He denied of any symptoms but claimed that it had bled once or twice in the past.
