A 13-year-old boy presented with erythematous scaly plaques on the face and extremities with history of photosensitivity of 7-years duration. There was no history of oral ulcers or joint pains. Although the histopathological findings were inconclusive, a positive lupus band test confirmed the diagnosis of subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus.
