Confluent and Reticulated Cutaneous Papillomatosis: Report of a Case

Confluent and Reticulated Cutaneous Papillomatosis: Report of a Case Abstract History The confluent and reticulated variety of cutaneous papillomatosis was first reported by Gougerot and Carteaud1-4 in 1927-1929.

Abstract

Abstract History The confluent and reticulated variety of cutaneous papillomatosis was first reported by Gougerot and Carteaud1-4 in 1927-1929. In 1932, they again discussed cutaneous papillomatoses, and to differentiate them from verrucous proliferative dermatoses proposed the following classification5: ( 1 ) punctate pigmented verrucous papillomatosis; (2) confluent and reticulated papillomatosis; (3) nummular and confluent papillomatosis. Cases of Group 2 have been reported in this country by Wise and Sachs,6 Waisman,7 and Young.8 In a recent review of the world literature by Kesten and James,9 37 cases were found, 1 previously presented by Kesten, and 2 reported for the first time.
