This patient had hyperpigmented, hyperkeratotic, patches and plaques with scale on the neck, upper-back, arms and sternal area.

Clinically, the eruption is most often confused with tinea versicolor. It is important to recognize this disorder, because minocycline therapy is highly effective in most patients.
