A 73-year-old white man with a history of hypertension, coronary artery disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and prostate cancer presented for treatment of tender nodules of 3 to 4 months' duration on both sides of his nose. The lesions were slowly increasing in size, interfering with the use of his eyeglasses.
On physical examination, he had tender, firm, flesh-colored, exophytic nodules over the bony prominences of the nasal bridge bilaterally (Figure 1). There was no central punctum or discharge, and there were no significant epidermal surface changes.
