An otherwise healthy 29-year-old man presented to our dermatology clinic for evaluation of suspected tinea corporis involving the right wrist and antecubital fossa. During the visit, a solitary, 1.2-cm, erythematous pedunculated papule was discovered on the upper part of the back (Figure 1). The lesion was soft and somewhat vascular in appearance, with some scaling at the base. The patient reported that the lesion had been present for approximately 1 year and had been slowly growing. He denied pain or bleeding from the lesion. To complete the clinicopathologic correlation, a biopsy was performed (Figure 2 and Figure 3).
