We report a patient with purpuric lesions at acral sites. The differential diagnosis of this type of lesion includes a wide variety diseases, so every patient must be urgently/preferentially referred for a dermatologic evaluation. A complete study must be performed including a blood test with immunological parameters and a skin biopsy. In a very short time the lesions developed into the typical clinical form of discoid lupus, and responded favourably to treatment
