A man in his 50s presented to dermatology services for a slow-growing hemorrhagic nodule of 5 months’ duration on his left lower cheek that had developed at the site of an abrasion from a motor vehicle crash. Several asymptomatic lesions subsequently developed around the primary lesion as well as on the face, arms, and torso. The patient was sexually active with male partners and had no known history of HIV. He was not taking any medications known to cause gingival hypertrophy.
