Two cases of fibrous papule of the nose (FPN) with granular cell features are presented and discussed. Both lesions have classic architectural features of FPN; however, the main stromal cells show large cytoplasmic granules of the type seen in granular cells. We are uncertain of the significance of these findings. Our hypotheses include a perifollicular granular cell reaction and a granular degenerative change of local dermal dendrocytes.
