Tumid lupus erythematosus (TLE) as a rare variant of cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) is characterized by edematous, urticarial-like annular papules and plaques. TLE has similar histopathologic findings to CLE such as periadnexal lymphocytic infiltration and interstitial mucin deposition. Although TLE develops on sun-exposed areas at any age, it is rarely distributed along the Blaschko lines and develops in infancy and childhood. Unlike CLE, skin lesion of TLE heals without leaving scarring or dyspigmentation. Here, we report a rare case of unilateral linear TLE in a 4-year-old girl, which was improved by intralesional corticosteroid injection and oral antimalarial drug with leaving postinflammatory hyperpigmentation.
