Multiple Self-Healing Epithelioma of Ferguson Smith Type: Report of a Case of Unilateral Distribution

Multiple Self-Healing Epithelioma of Ferguson Smith Type: Report of a Case of Unilateral... Abstract In the last five years the keratoacanthoma has been the subject of an increasing number of publications and is now widely accepted as a clinical entity of relatively common occurrence. Although the interest aroused has extended to other pseudoepitheliomatous conditions, very few reports have been published of the self-healing epithelioma of Ferguson Smith; we have traced only 22. The apparent rarity of this disorder justifies the publication of a further case, certain features of which may add to our knowledge of the pathogenesis of the syndrome. Report of Case This woman was born 1900 in Suffolk, England. Her parents were also born in Suffolk. Careful enquiry among her surviving relatives has not disclosed any further cases in the family. She had two brothers and five sisters, four of whom are alive and well. The causes of death of the three who have died are References 1. Allington, H. V.: Keratoacanthomas, Multiple , A. M. A. Arch.

Abstract In the last five years the keratoacanthoma has been the subject of an increasing number of publications and is now widely accepted as a clinical entity of relatively common occurrence. Although the interest aroused has extended to other pseudoepitheliomatous conditions, very few reports have been published of the self-healing epithelioma of Ferguson Smith; we have traced only 22. The apparent rarity of this disorder justifies the publication of a further case, certain features of which may add to our knowledge of the pathogenesis of the syndrome. Report of Case This woman was born 1900 in Suffolk, England. Her parents were also born in Suffolk. Careful enquiry among her surviving relatives has not disclosed any further cases in the family.
