We report the case of a 57-year-old man with a 7-year history of recurrent skin lesions on hands and lower limbs.

The lesions appeared annually between January and March and lasted 3 to 4 months despite treatment with topical dexamethasone and fusidic acid.

The patient denied a history of rheumatic disease and gastrointestinal or musculoskeletal complaints. Purpuric plaques were seen on both thighs and the dorsum of the hands. Palpable purpura was identified on the lower extremities.
