Abstract

VARGAS, Thiago Jeunon de Sousa et al. Sclerosing perineurioma: case report and literature review. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2009, vol.84, n.6, pp. 643-649. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962009000600010.

Sclerosing perineurioma is a rare benign neoplasm composed exclusively of perineural differentiation cells spread in a dense fibrous stroma. It affects primarily the skin of fingers and that of the palm of the hands. It appears as a hard papule or nodule, normochromic and asymptomatic. A case of sclerosing perineurioma in the left palm of a 16-year-old female is described, with detailed demonstration of clinical aspects, histopathology and literature review published in the English language.
