Abstract

Isotopic response describes the occurrence of a new skin disorder on the site of another, unrelated, and already healed skin disease. The most common cause of isotopic response in the skin is the herpes zoster virus. Variable cutaneous lesions including granulomatous reactions may occur at sites of herpes zoster infections. We report a case of papular granuloma annulare occurring on the site of herpes zoster.
