Figure 2: (a) Scanning view showing the characteristic “sandwich” picture involving the dermis and subcutis which consists of alternating horizontal bands of fibrosis and inflammatory infiltrate (H and E, ×20) (b) Higher magnification showing areas of degenerated collagen surrounded by inflammatory infiltrate (H and E, ×100) (c) Higher magnification showing histiocytic infiltrates around areas of degenerated collagen and some mucin deposition (H and E, ×400) (d) Small granulomas in the deep dermis composed of epithelioid histiocytes, surrounded by lymphocytes and plasma cells (H and E, ×400)
