  • Collaborators We especially want to thank Dr Anaïs Briquet (pulmonology department, Hôpital d’Instruction des Armées Laveran, Marseille) for availability and help in the management of this remote case, allowing us to find a dermatology correspondent on a holiday at a late hour.

  • Contributors GC is the doctor who saw the patient first in Mali during a consultation (extraction of hair made before consulting), asking him to consult again if it reoffended. NC saw the patient at 3 weeks (GC had gone into operations) and took the photos to ask for a dermatological opinion (telemedicine). AV made a teleconsultation from Toulon in France in order to do the diagnosis. ER saw the patient on his return in France from his mission and sent it secondarily to AV for final opinion. NC and GC wrote the case. ER and AV read back and edited the manuscript.
