    Delayed Tattoo Reaction From Red Dye With Overlapping Clinicopathological Features: Examination With High-Frequency Ultrasound and Line-Field Optical Coherence Tomography

    Introduction Delayed tattoo reactions include a wide range of clinical presentations and overlapping forms; thus diagnosis can be challenging. We present a case of a delayed tattoo reaction from red dye. Case Presentation An otherwise healthy 40-year-old man presented with firm elevated plaques that arose 4 months previously, within a multicolored tattoo on the right forearm, 8 months after the execution of the tattoo ( Figure 1A ). The patient claimed minimal and only occasional itching. Polarized dermoscopy (Luminis Visiomed, Caliber) highlighted multiple keratotic plugs within the lesion, limited to the red-dyed areas ( Figure 1 ). Examination with line-field confocal optical coherence tomography ...
