Two patients present with growths on the fingers. The first patient, black woman aged 45 years, presents with papules on the outside of her pinkies that had been present since birth, had not grown and did not bother her. The second, is a man aged 40 years with a six-month history of a growth on the side of one middle finger. Can you differentiate between the two?

Two patients present with red lesions. A white infant aged 4 months presented with a three-month history of a red, verrucous nodule on his scalp, that grew from a small papule to a 3-cm nodule.

Can you differentiate between these two patients’ lesions?
