Abstract

We report the first published case of multiple eruptive myxoid dermatofibroma (MEMDF) in a male with chronic hepatitis B infection presenting with eruptive lesions showing marked deposits of dermal mucin. Alcian blue and immunohistochemistry confirmed the diagnosis of myxoid dermatofibroma. Further work-up showed asymptomatic chronic hepatitis B infection without cirrhosis.

This case highlights an extremely rare histologic variant and the importance of screening for altered immunity in patients with eruptive dermatofibromas.
