A 69-year-old woman with a history of hypertension and irritable bowel syndrome presents with multiple ring-shaped lesions on both hands. The lesions are non-pruritic and developed over the past four days. When she visits for follow-up two weeks later, the lesions remain present.
This skin condition is variably reported to be linked to hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. It is most commonly asymptomatic and self-limited. Most lesions disappear spontaneously within a year, though the period can be hastened with topical steroids.
