Acanthosis nigricans is a rare disease, which presents with symmetrical dark pigmentation and hyperkeratosis. The most common sites for this disorder are the axillae, neck and genitalia. In this case report, a patient with widespread involvement including the face is presented. The affected skin was thickened, hyperkeratotic and had a gray brown color with pronounced warty papillomatosis, having a velvety texture. Several treatment modalities have been suggested; however, the results are mostly disappointing. The treatment chosen was CO2 laser therapy for the face. This resulted in an alleviation of symptoms and an excellent aesthetic improvement.
