A 26-year-old Japanese female presented to us with a 2-year history of multiple arc-shaped erythematous lesions on her scalp and the right side of her forehead. Histopathological examination of two of the lesions showed lobular and septal panniculitis with deposits of IgG in the basement membrane zone. We diagnosed the case as lupus erythematosus profundus, and successfully treated her with 20 mg/day prednisolone. To our knowledge, there has been only one previously reported case of lupus erythematosus profundus with annular-shaped erythematous lesions and six cases with linear configuration.
