Abstract

Seborrheic keratosis, a benign tumor is more common in the elderly and composed of epidermal keratinocytes. Seborrheric keratoses are very common in white races and are often of little concern to the patient, being accepted as a harmless and inevitable consequence of aging. This tumor was classified into six histopathological types by Lever; acanthotic, hyperkeratotic, adenoid, irritated, clonal, and melanoacanthoma. In 1978 Tagami and Yamada reported a rare acantholytic variant of seborrheic keratosis. We are reporting a case with seborrheic keratosis showing focal acantholysis.
