Abstract

PATHOLOGIC QUIZ CASE 1 

J. Jamón Escajadillo, MD, Mexico City  A 13-month-old girl was seen. At birth, she had small "papules" on the nose tip that were noticed by her mother. At three months, she had a red-purple coloration in the same region. Later, a slow growth developed on the tip of her nose, which produced an aesthetic deformity. Findings from a physical examination disclosed a red-purple coloration of the skin and a painless, soft, rubber-like tumor on the nose tip (Fig 1). This tumor produced a narrowing of the vestibular light, with columnella retraction. The remainder of the findings from the examination were normal.A surgical resection of the tumor was made, without complications, and the material was sent for histopathologic study (Fig 2 and 3).What is your diagnosis?
