We describe two men with multiple erythematous dermal nodules which were clinically and histologically consistent with a diagnosis of primary cutaneous immunocytoma. Both patients exhibited the very unusual feature of secondary anetoderma occurring in spontaneously resolving lesions. There is one previous report of anetoderma in association with a plasmacytoma. The pathogenesis remains unknown but release of cytokines such as interleukin-6 may be implicated.
