A 45-year-old female patient presented with two black plaques over her toes for the past 3 months that were persistent without any changes in the color, size or surface. Histopathology showed epidermal hyperplasia with corneal collection of fibrinous proteinaceous material and hemosiderin-laden macrophages and fibrinous exudate. We report this case to highlight the importance of proper diagnosis by means of dermoscopy and paring, of any black patch over acral regions in order to exclude the more concerning acral lentiginous melanoma.
