A 17-month-old white boy presented with a persistent asymptomatic swelling on the left lateral nasal sidewall. His parents first noticed a bluish macule when he was 4 months old. The lesion had partially regressed and then had regrown when the patient was 15 months old. There was no history of trauma, and the patient's medical history was unremarkable. Physical examination revealed a solitary 1 × 1-cm, smooth-surfaced, slightly pink, firm nodule located on the left lateral nasal sidewall. The lesion did blanch on compression.
