A 69-year-old man presented with an 8-month history of nodules growing on his abdomen. The nodules were tender, but otherwise he was healthy. Physical examination revealed 50 × 45-mm and 35 × 30-mm hard polypoidal nodules that occurred as an irregularly shaped single hard brown plaque on his abdomen (Figure 1). A skin biopsy was performed, and the specimen was analyzed under hematoxylin-eosin staining (Figure 2). A genetic study was also carried out (Figure 3).
