Multiple leiomyomas

Age: 30 year
Gender: Male
Site: Shoulder & Arm
Duration: 10 years
Morphology: multiple skin-colored to pinkish  nodules of10 years duration. Upper lesions were itchy whereas lower lesions were painful and tender. A syrian dermatologist had treated some of the lesions with laser (type of laser ?) and many lesions recurred with itching. O/E upper lesions (recurred ones) were firm to hard to palpation while lower lesions were smooth to ruberry in consistency. Skin biopsy revealed leiomyomas whereas recurred lesions were in fact keloidal scars (complicated laser therapy).
