ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 20-year-old female university student with a two-month history of asymptomatic pigmentation in a net-like distribution. She is said to have no history of trauma to the front of the thighs and had only taken medication through an oral contraceptive. The condition experienced by the student was said to be due to daily use of a laptop computer positioned atop her thighs and is easily preventable with improved knowledge of the potential hazards.
