A 45-year-old woman presents with the chief complaint of “itchy bumps” on her lower abdomen. Upon examination, her dermatologist notes the lesions are firm, skin-colored, shiny papules. Medical history reveals she recently received a kidney transplant and does not have a history of atopic dermatitis. She reports that the lesions appeared recently and, due to her medical history, she quickly made an appointment for an examination. Dermoscopy is used to examine the lesion, showing white/yellow polylobular structures and crown vessels.
