A shave biopsy specimen of the largest central papule revealed a fibrotic dermis containing many heavily pigmented oval, spindle-shaped, and dendritic melanocytes and melanophages (Figure 2). Pale cells, mitotic figures, cytologic atypia, and nuclear pleomorphism were not observed (Figure 3). Similar findings were observed in a punch biopsy specimen from an adjacent satellite macule (not shown).
