History: This lady had cytotoxic therapy for a lymphoma which included Bleomycin in the regime. Initial red pruritic linear lesions are followed by pigmentation which slowly resolves over months.

Clinically it resembles pigmentation following a phytophototoxic reaction from a plant sap and sunlight.
