Hematoxylin-eosin–stained sections revealed central epidermal thinning with an overlying serous crust. Within the dermis, there was a dense infiltrate of histiocytic cells admixed with numerous eosinophils and a few scattered lymphocytes. The histiocytes had large round or reniform, vesicular, pale-staining nuclei with prominent nucleoli and abundant eosinophilic ground glass cytoplasm. Focal extravasation of red blood cells were seen in the papillary dermis. No mitotic figures or epidermotropism was noted.
