Figure 1

Photomicrograph of the skin lesion of case 1. (A) Low-power view showed a well-circumscribed epidermal mass composed of basaloid lobules with a fibrous pseudocapsule. (B) Distinct appearance of centrolobular cell balls with undifferentiated basaloid cells displaying peripheral palisading and myxiod stroma. (C) CK5/6 immunoreactivity was more intense in the outer layer tumor cells than those within the round nests. (D) The peripheral rim of palisading basaloid cells were stained with Bcl-2, along with the central part non-stained, giving the appearance of rings.
