A 51-year-old female patient presented with typical lesions of nodular vasculitis, which was confirmed by histopathology, and was proved to be of non-tubercular etiology by the absence of mycobacterial DNA in tissue PCR. The patient was initially treated with saturated solution of potassium iodide which led to partial improvement, but it had to be discontinued due to gastric irritation. The patient was then put on dapsone, starting with 100 mg per day, following which good response was seen.
