A healthy, 34-year-old male presented with a 1-year skin history of a lesion on the right leg that had been undergoing steady growth and causing discomfort. There was no previous history of trauma or injury in the area. On physical examination there was an exophytic nodule of 2 cm x 3 cm in diameter, joined by a pedicle to the skin. The surface eroded and crusted in some areas, but otherwise was smooth surface and surrounded by a pinkish-brown patch (Figure 1). A month later the nodule showed a significant increase in size. Surgical treatment under local anesthesia was performed. Histological sections are shown in Figure 2.
