A 49-year-old man first noticed an engorged blood vessel on his right chest wall going into his right armpit. It was originally considered a blood clot. A few weeks later, he found a lump under his right arm with marked swelling. A skin biopsy of his chest wall showed nonspecific inflammation. An excisional biopsy of the lump turned out to be a lymph node with atypical lymphoid cells (Fig. 66.1).
