“A 21-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with a 2-week history of lesions on her left hand. As a student in an agriculture program, she had had ungloved contact with goats and the mouth of a baby calf during a farm practicum 1 week before presentation. The animals had no evidence of disease. The patient reported no history of symptomatic herpes infections, recent travel or chronic illnesses. She had 2 discreet, nonpainful, well-circumscribed lesions on the dorsum of her left second and third fingers, each measuring less than 1 cm in diameter (Figure 1). She had a small, tender, left epitrochlear lymph node, and mild swelling and tenderness of the left wrist.”
