Abstract

Dermatofibroma is a common fibrohistiocytic tumor of the skin. It generally occurs as a solitary lesion. However, some cases of multiple dermatofibromas in immune-compromised patients or patients with abnormal immune status have been reported, hence this phenomenon has been thought to be associated with altered immunity. We present a case of multiple dermatofibromas which developed in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus, plus a review of the literature.
