Abstract

TANNUS, Bruno Guimarães; SATO, Mauricio Shigueru; CAVALIN, Leila Cristina  and  BRENNER, Fabiane Mullinari. Comparative dermatology: viral warts. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.1, pp. 93-94. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962008000100014.

This case demonstrates an unusual presentation of verruca vulgaris on the dorsum of the hands in a 53 year-old man with previous history of treated Hodgkin lymphoma. The spiculate, confluent and rough-surfaced papules, with slight desquamation and keratotic core are comparable to rock crystals.

Keywords : Immunosuppression; Human Papillomavirus 16; Skin diseases, viral; Warts.
