A 38-year-old man presented with multiple, asymptomatic gradually progressive dusky red, shiny, well-defined protuberant nodules over the arms that had been followed by the appearance of similar lesions over his trunk, lower limbs, and face over a 1-year period. He was otherwise healthy with no systemic symptoms. There was no history of any other form of skin lesions anywhere on the body. On examination, multiple discrete grouped skin-colored and erythematous shiny fleshy cutaneous nodules were seen over his face, arms, abdomen, back (Figure 1), and lower limbs. Few lesions on the abdomen showed central umbilication and crusting.
