The glucagonoma syndrome is a rare disease in which a typical skin lesion, necrolytic migratory erythema, is often one of the presenting symptoms. A 68-year-old woman developed erythematous polycyclic migratory lesions with advancing scaling borders and crusts over several years. Skin biopsies, laboratory studies and imaging confirmed the diagnosis of necrolytic migratory erythema as part of a glucagonoma syndrome.
