A 34-year-old gentleman presents with three asymptomatic skin nodules on his lower abdomen, right flank, and lower back that have been enlarging for 4 months... He denies any weight change, fatigue, or other symptoms... Past medical history is significant for a “similar” lesion on his buttock which was removed and diagnosed as a trichilemmal (pilar) cyst 4 years ago... Histological examination of the right flank tumor revealed a trichilemmal cyst... The overlying epidermis was relatively unremarkable with an intact basal layer, granular layer, and stratum corneum... Pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia was not seen... The periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) stain was not performed... What is your diagnosis? Only IADVL members residing in India are allowed to take part in IJD® QUIZ... The editors, editorial board members, advisors and employees of the journal and members of their immediate family are not eligible to take part in IJD® QUIZ... The same rule is applicable to the office bearers and employees of IADVL, WB and also employees of the sponsors and their immediate family members... Persons other than Indian nationals, or Indian nationals living out of India are ineligible to enter the IJD® QUIZ... This round will be closed on March 31, 2015...

Figure 4: Immunohistochemistry depicting diffuse and strong positive nuclear and cytoplasmic response with S100 protein (original magnification ×4)

Mentions: Histological examination of the right flank tumor revealed a trichilemmal cyst. The hematoxylin-eosin-stained sections of the tumor on the lower abdomen [Figure 1] showed a non-encapsulated dermal tumor composed of irregularly arranged sheets of large polyhedral cells with small central hyperchromatic nuclei and abundant granular eosinophilic cytoplasm [Figure 3]. There was no evidence of necrosis, cytologic atypia, or mitotic figures. The overlying epidermis was relatively unremarkable with an intact basal layer, granular layer, and stratum corneum. Pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia was not seen. The tumor cells showed diffuse, strong nuclear and cytoplasmic staining with S100 protein [Figure 4] and strong cytoplasmic staining with CD68 [Figure 5]. The periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) stain was not performed.
