Race for the Case: A 15-year-old Caucasian male presents with a focal irregular lesion on the right abdomen since birth.  The lesion has grown progressively in proportion to the patient. It is asymptomatic in nature, but becomes intermittently irritated due to friction from overlying clothing. The patient is otherwise healthy with no other cutaneous lesions.

This case was submitted by Paul Gruber, MD, from the department of dermatology at Saint Louis University.
