   Case Report Top


A 24-year-old unmarried healthy female presented with a single painful nodule on the medial aspect of left thigh since 2 months. She reported previous history of boil at the same site 1 year ago which subsided on treatment. Patient was not a known diabetic and denied any previous history of trauma or bleeding from the site. She also denied using any topical medicaments at the site. On dermatological examination, an erythematous sessile nodule of size 1.5 cm × 1 cm was seen 5 cm away from the groin fold [Figure 1]. On palpation, the nodule was tender and firm in consistency. Systemic examination was within normal limits. Her laboratory evaluation and screening for biopsy were within normal limits. Excisional biopsy of the complete lesion was done and subjected to histopathological examination. Histopathology showed hyperplasia of contiguous follicular infundibula with numerous eosinophilic bodies within the spinous cells [Figure 2] and [Figure 3].
