• Six cutaneous tumors developed in a 48-year old man, involving his face, right axilla, trunk, and right thigh, during an eight-year period. Biopsy of the lesions demonstrated multiple plate-like lobules of basophilic cells, with broad attachments to the overlying epidermis. Keratinfilled cysts and clusters of sebaceous cells were present within the lobules. None of the tumors have recurred following electrodesiccation and curettage.
