Papular mucinosis is a relatively uncommon condition. We report a 50-year-old female patient who presented with asymptomatic skin colored lesions in a segmental pattern involving the T3 and T4 segments of the left side. Lesional biopsy (H and E) showed a sparse superficial perivascular lymphocytic infiltrate with abundant mucin throughout the reticular dermis. Special staining with Alcian blue confirmed mucinosis.
