The histological and immunohistochemical examination of 18 cases of fibrous papule of the nose (FPN) together with an analysis of the literature suggest that in most cases we are dealing with an angiofibroma and only exceptionally with a regressive fibrotic melanocytic nevus. FPN must be differentiated from angiofibromas of tuberous scelerosis and perifollicular fibromas.
