A 10-year-old girl reported with large tumorous masses on the face for about 6 months [Figure 1]. These started as small eruptions. Few of them were ulcerated and secondarily infected. The patient was HIV negative and CD4 cell count was 830/cu mm. Histopathology from a smaller lesion showed hypertrophic lobular epidermis and few epidermal cells were hugely distended with intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies [Figure 2].
