We describe a 16-year old female with lupus erythematosus panniculitis with unusual manifestations. She had noted to have developed erythematous nodules and plaques in the right axilla and inguinal region at the age of one year. These lesions resolved gradually with scar formation. However, new lesions were noted at the same locations in the following years. Some of her lesions at the scalp and the left axillary regions developing within the last two years slowly enlarged showing an annular configuration and subsequently resulted in hair loss. The erythematous border of her lesion in the left axilla consisted of two parallel red lines. Histopathological and direct immuno fluorescent findings were consistent with lupus erythematosus panniculitis. Similar clinical findings in the same locations were also observed in the mother.
