A 20-year-old lady presented with an asymptomatic lesion around her right eye since one year. There was no history of bleeding, discharge from the lesion or ulceration. No history of seasonal variation, or family history of similar lesions. Clinical examination showed a single, sessile, translucent skin-colored, dome-shaped nodule seen near right medial canthus of eye [Figure 1]. The surface of the nodule was smooth. Hair, nail, mucous membranes, general physical, and systemic examinations were normal. A punch biopsy was done from the nodule. Histopathological features from hematoxylin and eosin-stained tissue section are shown in [Figure 2] and [Figure 3].
