A 38-year-old man presented with multiple erythematous smooth-surfaced shiny papules and nodules over the scrotal skin for the preceding one year. The lesions had insidious onset and were asymptomatic. They slowly increased in size and number to the present situation. There was no history of drug intake, insect bite, tattooing, scabies, vaccination, or acupuncture prior to onset of the lesions. Rest of the history was unremarkable and no other family member had similar lesions. On examination, multiple firm, dome-shaped papules and nodules of varying size were noted on the scrotum. The surface was smooth and shiny, devoid of any scaling or prominent follicular opening [Figure 1]. No regional lymphadenopathy was noted. A 4 mm punch biopsy from the nodule was made. The histopathological features (H and E stain) were shown in [Figure 2] and [Figure 3].
