  • Sir, Locus minoris resistentiae (LMR) is a site that offers lesser resistance or increased vulnerability than the rest of the body to the onset of disease. Trauma, irradiation, healed herpes scars, or chronic lymph stasis commonly act as LMR, leading to localization of numerous inflammatory and neoplastic conditions.[1] Areas of cutaneous mosaicism act as congenital LMR. The occurrence of an infectious condition such as verrucae over areas of cutaneous mosaicism is rare.
