Abstract

Abstract The primary papillomatoses were first described in 1927 by Gougerot and Carteaud.1 In 1932,2 they divided the diseases falling under this heading into the following three groups: (1) punctate, pigmented, verrucous papillomatosis, (2) confluent and reticulated papillomatosis, and (3) nummular and confluent papillomatosis. Until 1963,3 only 39 patients with confluent and reticulated papillomatosis had been described. Subsequently, a few additional case reports were published.4,5 The familial occurrence of this type of papillomatosis was first noted by Baden.4 We report herein another case of familial occurrence involving a mother and her two children. Report of Cases Case 1.— A 44-year-old woman (para 6) sought medical advice in September 1974 for cosmetic reasons. She had no complaints about her health otherwise, but, at the age of 12 years, a lightly pigmented eruption had appeared on the inner sides of her arms. For a few years the eruption References 1.
