Summer Scourges (The Garden Variety)—A Photo Essay

A 30-year-old woman was weeding her garden, on her knees. A day later, an intensely pruritic eruption that developed rapidly on both legs extended from the knees to the upper thighs. The linear arrangement of the papulovesicular lesions, many of which were excoriated, generally indicates an acute allergic contact dermatitis. She probably was kneeling in poison ivy, thus accounting for the limited distribution of the eruption.
