A previously healthy 51-year-old female presented with an asymptomatic skin lesion on her right posterior ankle for 10 years. She denied any trauma history or the occurrence of previous cystic lesions. On examination, there was a brownish hyperkeratotic plaque about 1.2 cm in size on her right posterior ankle (Fig. 1). Excisional biopsy was performed and the specimen was sent for pathological examination (Fig. 2). PCR for detecting human papilloma virus genome was also performed.
