Abstract

CUNHA FILHO, Roberto Rheingantz da; ALMEIDA JR, Hiram Larangeira de  and  CARTELL, André. Verrucous epidermal nevus manifesting as nipple and areola hyperkeratosis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2006, vol.81, n.4, pp.377-379. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962006000400011.

A rare case of a 13-year-old female patient with epidermal verrucous nevus on the right areola is reported. According to the Levy-Franckel classification, this variant is a type I nipple and areola hyperkeratosis, when associated to verrucous nevus. Histopathological examination showed papillomatosis, acanthosis and hyperkeratosis. Cryotherapy yielded unsatisfactory results after two sessions. A good result was obtained with shaving and electrocauterization.

Keywords : Cryotherapy; Electrocoagulation; Epidermis; Keratosis; Nevus; Nipples.
