Medium-power microscopy demonstrated circumscribed dermal tumors consisting of cords and lobules of folliculocentric basaloid cells with minimal palisading (Figure 2). Structures resembling small keratinous cysts and immature hair follicles were appreciated. Higher magnification revealed vellus hairs within some of the tumor lobules, minimal cytologic atypia, and no mitotic figures (Figure 3).
