A 37-year-old Cantonese man presented with pruritic erythematous papules and nodules on his face, limbs, and trunk that had been present for 10 years and aggravated for 2 years. More nodules were noticed where the skin was scratched and traumatized. The lesions were alleviated temporarily, but they did not subside entirely without therapy. The lesions responded to treatment with intravenous dexamethasone. Histopathology results indicated angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE), and the patient was diagnosed with disseminated ALHE (DALHE). His lesions ameliorated after treatment with prednisone.
