A 56-year-old woman presented with an asymptomatic abdominal nodule. She stated that the lesion had originally appeared after trauma to the site long ago but that it had been growing slowly since then. Her medical history was remarkable for diabetes, which she controlled with oral medication.

Physical examination of the lower part of her abdomen showed a 3-cm soft skin-colored nodule with a nonulcerated and multilobated surface (Figure 1 and Figure 2). No peripheral lymphadenopathy was palpable. The lesion was excised (Figure 3 and Figure 4).
