Dejection: a novel cause of rejection?

Published online: 1 December 2003

A 51-year-old man presented with non-healing ulceration at the site of a tattoo on his right leg. Some 8 years previously, in celebration of the victory of his favourite team, Carlton, in the Australian Football League Grand Final, he and a friend both had a picture of a stylised Carlton footballer tattooed on one of their legs. The tattooist did not have a navy blue pigment (the team’s colour) to tint the jersey, but improvised with another source of pigment.
