A 56-year-old woman came into our medical center complaining of multiple pruritic, slowly growing scaly nodules over her right ankle (FIGURE 1A AND 1B). She indicated that the lesions started as small pink “bumps” at the staple sites of an open reduction and internal fixation surgery of her talus that she’d had 8 years ago.
There were no lesions elsewhere on her body and her past medical history was otherwise unremarkable.
