Hematoxylin-eosin staining of the biopsy specimens showed a diffuse, dense infiltrate in the upper dermis and a patchy, perivascular and periadnexal infiltrate in the lower dermis (Figure 2) composed of predominantly plasmacytoid cells (Figure 3). In situ hybridization revealed a κ light-chain–restricted population. Immunohistochemical stains were diffusely positive for CD79a and IgG and essentially negative for CD20, IgD, IgM, and IgA. A fluorescence polymerase chain reaction assay was positive for a clonal immunoglobulin heavy-chain gene rearrangement. Cultures of punch biopsy specimens were negative for bacteria, fungi, and mycobacteria.
