Abstract

Acquired digital fibrokeratoma is a rare form of benign tumor of the fibrous tissue involving the skin. Histopathologically, the epidermis shows marked hyperkeratosis and acanthosis. The core of lesion is formed by thick, interwoven bundles of collagen predominantly oriented in the direction of the vertical axis of the lesion. We report a case of acquired digital fibrokeratoma in a 50-year-old female who has given consistent trauma on finger tip for corn removal.
