Figure 2: Histopathological image showing proliferation of both vascular components and eccrine structures in the mid to deep dermis (hematoxylin and eosin, original magnification ×4).

Mentions: A skin biopsy was done in which the hematoxylin and eosin-stained section displayed increasing components of blood vessels and mature eccrine glands in the mid to deep dermis (fig. 2). Adipose tissue was generally observed. The epidermis was unremarkable. The section showed positive staining with D2-40, CD31 and anti-Ulex europaeus-1, whereas the staining result for GLUT-1 was negative. Magnetic resonance imaging was performed to identify the outline and depth of the lesion. The magnetic resonance imaging result showed an enhancing cutaneous nodule with surrounding subcutaneous tissue edema. Since the patient complained of an increasing intensity of pain when she came back for follow-up, she was referred to a surgeon for mass excision.
