A 2-year-old boy was referred to the pediatric dermatology clinic for evaluation of an idiopathic, hypopigmented, atrophic patch on the right gluteal area. After extensive questioning the patient's parents recalled a penicillin injection several months prior to the appearance of lipoatrophy. There were no associated abnormalities.
