The article discusses the case of a 54-year-old woman who was diagnosed with golfer's vasculitis. The initial triamcinolone cream 0.1% initially prescribed by her primary care provider was found to be ineffective. Golfers, fair-goers, amusement park patrons and hikers are likely to develop the condition. The highly blanchable nature of the condition of the patient is identified as the key differentiating finding for golfer's vasculitis.
