Prurigo nodularis (PN) is a chronic skin disease that manifests with severe itchy, firm, hyperkeratotic nodules distributed on the trunk and the extremities symmetrically. Here, we report a unique presentation of PN. A 26-year-old male presented with multiple itchy nodules over the hands and feet sparing the trunk, which were confirmed histologically as PN. This is the first reported case of PN with exclusive acral distribution.
