Show Summary Details


A 26-year-old man presented to the dermatologists with a 5-month history of a painless and non-itchy infiltrate in the red areas of a forearm tattoo. In addition, he noticed some small lumps that appeared on the elbow and outer arm above the tattoo. He had noticed some mild arthralgia over the last 3 months. There was no relevant past medical history, except that 2 years previously, the red areas in the tattoo had become raised but this had settled after a few weeks.
