Dr. Mukesh Kumar, Dr. Anupam Sharma and Dr. Shikha Sharma*
Fibroepithelial polyps or Skin tags are the most common fibrous lesions of skin. They are skin colored, asymptomatic pedunculated tumors with smooth surface. They are located usually at the neck, axilla or groin. The average diameters of these lesions are around 2 mm, but larger lesions, called giant skin tags are reported rarely in the literature. Skin tag often appears or increases in number when a patient is gaining weight, having insulin resistance or during pregnancy. We report a 45 year old woman with giant skin tag measuring 13 cm over the medial aspect of upper part of right thigh.
