A 25-year-old male presented with multiple skin-colored to hyperpigmented, soft to firm raised lesions of varying sizes on the right side of the chest, back, and right upper extremity since six years. Lesions were tender to touch and had gradually increased in number and size to the present status. Family and personal history were noncontributory. Examination revealed multiple grouped, soft to firm, tender, skin-colored papules, and nodules ranging from 2 mm to 10 mm distributed on the right side of the chest extending from midline to anterior axillary line (T2-T6 dermatome) [Figure 1] and on the extensor aspect of the right upper extremity (C5-6 dermatome). [Figure 2]. Button-hole sign was negative and cold sensitivity was absent. Systemic clinical examination, urine microscopy, abdominal and pelvic sonography was normal. Histopathology showed a poorly demarcated tumor in the dermis around the hair follicle composed of interlacing bundles of spindle-shaped cells with elongated rounded nuclei and moderate cytoplasm [Figure 3].
