Although dermatofibroma is one of the most common
soft tissue tumors, it is rarely seen in the face.
Perforating dermatosis is characterized by papulonodules
measuring 1-10 cm, with a central cup-shaped
epidermal depression filled with a keratotic plug. An
82-year-old woman presented with a hyperkeratotic
erythematous papular lesion, 0.8 cm in diameter, on
the posterior side of the left auricle, showing no infiltration
to the peripheral tissues. Total excisional biopsy
was performed, which showed dermatofibroma
accompanied by perforating dermatosis. No recurrence
was detected during her follow-up. Our literature
search did not yield any reported case of dermatofibroma
accompanied by perforating dermatosis.
