A red tumor

A 56-year-old woman consulted for a red lesion on her abdomen.
Dermoscopy revealed: regularly distributed hairpin-like vessels in favor of a seborrheic keratosis.
This lesion was excised and pathology confirmed the result.

Seborrheic keratosis is a cause of red tumor. Remind to rule out an amelanotic melanoma which is a great masquerader.
