A 55-year-old man presented with asymptomatic multiple, discrete, red to black papules over the scrotum [Figure 1] with occasional episodes of bleeding for the past 6 months. Few papules had a smooth surface while others had a rough keratotic surface. Based on the history and characteristic examination findings, a diagnosis of Angiokeratoma of Fordyce was made. It is characterized by red-purple to black papules and plaques. Histopathology reveals capillary ectasia in papillary dermis with reactive epidermal acanthosis and hyperkeratosis.
