A pruritic pedunculated pink nodule on the leg


Herein, we present a patient with a lipidized fibrous histiocytoma, an underrecognized variant of dermatofibroma (cutaneous fibrous histiocytoma). Our patient presented with a nodule on the ankle that showed foamy histiocytes and hyalinized collagen bundles on histology. This case highlights a classic presentation and features of lipidized fibrous histiocytoma, raising further awareness of this distinctive variant of dermatofibroma that should be distinguished from xanthoma and xanthogranuloma.
