A 22-year-old man presented with an 18-month history of a slow-growing, asymptomatic nodular lesion on his upper lip. Physical examination revealed a dark-red, firm, dome-shaped nodule, measuring 8 mm in diameter, with an adherent scale covering the central part of its surface (Figure 1 and Figure 2). The patient appeared to be in good general health, and routine laboratory investigations showed no abnormalities. The lesion was completely excised for light microscopic examination (Figure 3).
