A 47-year-old black woman presented with progressive asymptomatic skin lesions of more than 5 years’ duration. Physical examination revealed lax skin masses on her neck (Figure 1) and trunk, the upper part of both arms (Figure 2), and the inner area of both thighs. There was a large indurated plaque on her abdomen and ulcerated tumoral lesions on her arms and legs. The lymph nodes were not enlarged.
