A 27-year-old man presented with a dark colored lesion on the left upper back since 6 years. It began as a small, dark red papule that increased in size over time. Patient also complained of episodic excessive sweating over the lesion. Examination revealed a hyperpigmented irregular plaque with a dusky-red hue measuring about 5 × 8 cm with geographical margins and smaller satellite lesions involving the left scapular region [Figure 1]. Histological examination of the lesion revealed multiple circumscribed lobules and aggregates of elongated and spindle-shaped cells throughout the dermis that demonstrated luminal differentiation at the center and at the margins [Figure 2]. The lumina were lined by large endothelial cells [Figure 3]. The overlying epidermis was mildly hyperplastic with irregular elongation of rete ridges and increased melanization of the basal layer.
