Abstract

Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a skin infection caused by a poxvirus, which is easily transmitted by direct skin to skin contact. MC is rarely associated with other skin diseases, including epidermal cysts, melanocytic nevus, halo nevus, soft fibroma or condyloma. The occurrence of MC on a soft fibroma is so rare that only three cases have been described so far. Here, we report an interesting a case of a solitary MC associated with soft fibroma occurring on the right popliteal fossa of a 6-year-old girl.
