PRIMARY OSTEOMA CUTIS: Report of a Case Simulating Verruca Plantaris

Abstract

Abstract Osteomas of the skin are uncommon. The majority of ossifications of the skin have been reported as secondary to injuries, inflammatory processes, and tumors and are considered to be metaplasia. Primary osteoma cutis involving the skin of the sole of the foot is a rare disease. A case was reported by Coleman1 in 1894 in a child of 6 years who had a lesion on the sole which the mother had noted about two and a half years previously; it occupied about one-third of the plantar surface, particularly under the os calcis. One and one-half years after the lesion in the sole appeared, the fourth toe became involved, and eventually the plaque and the fourth toe were removed. Sections through the body of the plaque contained cancellous bone which ran close to the epidermis. Ossification seemed to be proceeding regularly, and there was no evidence to indicate that the References 1. Coleman, W.: Osteosis of the Skin of the Foot , J. Cutan. Dis. 12:185, 1894. 2.
