A previously healthy 14-year-old girl had a large but asymptomatic lesion on the left lower eyelid margin (Figure 1A). She had first noted a small papule that gradually and progressively grew over 5 months. She also noticed that the lesion had grown after minor trauma. On physical examination, the lower eyelid lesion was a firm, pink, 28 × 19 × 15-mm nodule with central ulceration and crust. The remainder of the skin examination results were normal.

An otherwise healthy 10-year-old boy had a large and growing asymptomatic lesion on the left upper eyelid (Figure 1B). He had noted a small, bluish papule 2 months previously; the lesion had grown following trauma when he was hit in the ipsilateral eye by a dodgeball. On physical examination, the upper eyelid lesion was a firm, pink, 25 × 12 × 6-mm nodule with overlying telangiectasias. He had smaller but similar-appearing lesions on his right foot and left upper arm. The remainder of the skin examination results were normal.
