Abstract

We report a unique case of probable drug-induced CD30-positive lymphomatoid reaction. A 58-year-old woman presented with bilateral facial eruptions of 3 weeks duration composed of erythematosus papules in a linear distribution. The pathological features demonstrated a dense dermal and follicular infiltrate of many medium- to large-sized atypical CD30-positive lymphoid cells. The rash resolved rapidly after discontinuation of her medication 1 week later and did not recur. This case highlights the importance of clinicopathological correlation.
