Abstract

The authors address the entity of cutaneous lymphadenoma. Although considered benign, cutaneous lymphadenoma can be easily misdiagnosed as basal cell carcinoma because of its close clinical and histological resemblance. This entity is rare and controversial both in terms of its histogenesis and the various diagnostic terms assigned to it throughout the literature. While rare, cutaneous lymphadenoma should be considered in the differential of any facial nodule or papule in addition to the more common basal cell carcinoma, nevi, cysts, and appendiceal tumors.
