A 32-year-old, married, non-promiscuous female presented with extremely itchy, skin-colored lesions over her genitalia for the past two months [Figure 1]. There was no history of menstrual flare or summer exacerbation. The patient had been treated with topical corticosteroids, with no response. Examination of the genitalia revealed multiple, small, skin-colored papules distributed symmetrically over the labia majora. Similar skin lesions were not found anywhere else on the body. The histopathology from one of the papules showed many small ducts lined by two rows of flat to cuboidal cells in the dermis [Figure 2].
