Department of Dermatology, University of Heidelberg, Voss-str. 2, 69115 Heidelberg, Germany.


The Koebner phenomenon or isomorphic response was originally described in psoriasis and has subsequently been observed in various other diseases. We report a patient with isomorphic response in scleromyxoedema, a variant of papular mucinosis with diffuse infiltration of the skin. The Koebner phenomenon was due to a scratch test performed 4 weeks before the appearance of streaky, lichenoid infiltrations on the forearms.
