Dermatofibroma

definition

Dermatofibroma represents a benign reactive proliferation of fibroblast in the skin. Dermatofibromas are firm, indolent, single or multiple dermal nodules most frequently located on the extremities. Their size does not exceed 5 mm. They are mostly red or red-brown but can also be blue-black due to the deposit of haemosiderin.
