A 19-year-old Israeli man of Iranian origin presented with a 2-month history of a slowly enlarging lesion on his left cheek. His medical history was unremarkable. Examination revealed a single, round, 1.5-cm-diameter plaque with a depressed brownish center and an erythematous elevated border (Figure 1). The results of routine blood tests and urinalysis were within normal limits. A biopsy specimen was obtained (Figure 2).
