An 84-year-old white woman presented with a 3-week history of an asymptomatic, rapidly growing, red-violet, firm nodule on the right side of her nose. The lesion had previously been treated with oral antibiotics as a presumed cyst. The patient was otherwise healthy.

Physical examination revealed a 2-cm, rapidly growing, erythematous to violaceous, firm, solid mass involving the full thickness of the right nasal ala (Figure 1). There was no ulceration or cervical lymphadenopathy.
