Abstract
A 30-year-old-man presented with a 2-month history of a facial lesion. He was examined by general practitioners, and the eruption was diagnosed as eczema. Topical corticosteroid was applied for 1 month, and the eruption initially seemed to improve with this treatment; but later on, it persisted, and gradually extended in size. Dermatological examination revealed the presence of grouped erythematous papules, vesicles and crusts on erythematous bases, on the right lower eyelid (Fig. 1A). He had no medical history, and no family member who had had similar skin eruptions or symptoms. The initial clinical differential diagnosis included herpes simplex, herpes zoster, and allergic contact dermatitis, caused by an antibiotic eye drop.
