Self-healing juvenile cutaneous mucinosis was encountered in a 15-year-old boy who presented with characteristic cutaneous findings and a clinical course of final spontaneous resolution. The interesting point is the presence of numerous nodules found in unusual locations. To date, nodules occurring on the long axis of the extremities have not been reported.
