Cutaneous examination demonstrated multiple ulcers, all strictly limited to the left side of the face (Figure 1). Each ulcer showed well-defined borders with irregular outlines. Neurologic examination revealed no abnormalities other than mild paresthesias on the left side of the face. Histologic analysis was performed with hematoxylin-eosin staining (Figure 2 and Figure 3).
