A 25-year-old man presented with multiple nodules involving the left forehead. The lesions had been present for 1½ years and had grown progressively. Clinical examination revealed a 2 cm infiltrated and indurated asymptomatic plaque on the forehead (Figure 1). The rest of his cutaneous exam was normal. The patient denied any history of local trauma or acne vulgaris and the previous endocrine evaluation did not show any hormone alterations. Histologic sections are shown in Figures 2 and 3.
