Histologic examination of the lesion showed numerous villous papillary projections extending into the lumina of cystic invaginations, which were connected to a papillomatous epidermis. The epithelial lining consisted of a double-layered epithelium with an inner layer of tall columnar cells and an outer layer of small cuboidal cells. Histopathologic findings indicated a diagnosis of SP. There was no evidence of an epidermal nevus or any malignant changes. Complete excision of the lesion was performed, and after 6 months follow-up no recurrence was observed.
