Husienzad L, Friedman BJ, Yang SX, Tran A, Lee JB. Multiple Grouped Scalp Nodules in a Middle-Aged Man: A Rare Case of Angiolymphoid Hyperplasia with Eosinophilia. Skinmed 2018; 16(1):71-72.
An otherwise healthy man in his 50s presented complaining of pruritic lesions on the left side of his scalp. The lesions had slowly been growing in size over the preceding 30 years. They would occasionally bleed, and this is what ultimately prompted him to seek medical advice. Physical examination revealed multiple aggregated and soft, flesh-colored nodules on the left posterior auricular area of the scalp (Figure 1). No appreciable clinical lymphadenopathy was identified on examination. A shave biopsy of one of the nodules was performed for diagnostic clarification.
