Abstract

The occurrence of a new skin disorder at t.he site of another unrelated and already healed skin disease is called an isotopic response. This was defined by Wolf et al in 1995. The preceding diseases are mostly herpes zosters and various other diseases, such as carcinoma, granuloma annulare can follow. There has been only one report of an acneiform eruption occurring on the healed site of herpes zoster. We report, herein, a case of acneiform eruption that had developed on a site previously affecled by herpes zoster, which is thought to be an isotopic response.
