Primary Cutaneous Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (PC-ALCL) is a rare Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) representing approximately 9% of all cutaneous lymphomas.3 It usually manifests as a slow-growing, solitary tumor which has a tendency to regress spontaneously. However, metastasis is reported in 5-10% of cases.

Erythema elevatum diutinum (EED) is a rare condition believed to be a form of chronic recurrent leukocytoclastic vasculitis possibly secondary to vascular immune complex deposition. The disease is characterized by symmetrical, red, brownish-purple, and yellow papules, plaques, and nodules distributed mainly over the extensor surfaces of the extremities. We report a 61-year-old male with an atypical presentation of such disease as a giant warty lesion on the heels. Histologically, a spectrum from leukocytoclastic vasculitis to vessel occlusion and dermal fibrosis is seen in EED.
