9-year-old boy, 6.0-mm polypoid erythematous nodule with ulceration, left chest

    A 9-year-old boy presented with a 6.0-mm polypoid erythematous nodule with ulceration on his left chest. An excisional biopsy was done. Histologically, the tumor revealed several foci of superficial basal cell carcinoma along the epidermis. In the dermis, the tumor was composed of basaloid epithelial anastomosing cords that were separated by fibrovascular stroma connected to the overlying epidermis (Figure 1). The histopathological features were that of a fibroepithelioma of Pinkus. The lesion was completely removed with clear biopsy margin. The patient is being followed for any possible local recurrence.
