Abstract

A 45-year-old Malay lady developed brisk vesicular, plaque-like reaction to a Mantoux test concomitant with a diagnosis of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). The lesion resolved one month after chemotherapy. Similar lesions developed later after she was bitten by mosquitoes on the fore arms. She also had the lesions over her cheek. A skin biopsy showed infiltration of the dermis with neutrophils and some monocytoid cells. The lesion resolved one week after prednisolone therapy.
