A 50-year-old man presented for evaluation of subcutaneous nodules on his right leg. His medical history included severe cardiovascular disease. He stated that a nodule had developed on his right foot 1 month earlier and that multiple smaller nodules had developed on the same leg 1 week before presentation (Figure 1). He denied a history of trauma to his leg or recent outdoor activities. He had no history of fevers, chills, sweats, fatigue, or unexplained weight loss.
