 en Multifocal cutaneous melanoacanthoma with ulceration: A case report with review of literature
Jain, Shalu; Barman, Krishna D.; Garg, Vijay K.; Sharma, Sudhanshu; Dewan, Shruti & Mahajan, Nidhi


We report a case of a 58-year-old female patient who presented with multiple, asymptomatic, slowly-growing, raised pigmented lesions all over her body for the past 10 years with ulceration in one of the lesions on the trunk for the past five months. Histopathology of the lesion revealed features consistent with melanoacanthoma. Here, we report the first case of cutaneous melanoacanthoma presenting with an ulcerated plaque and the third case of cutaneous melanoacanthoma with multiple lesions. To the best of our knowledge, ulceration has not yet been reported as a feature of cutaneous melanoacanthoma in the medical literature.

Melanoacanthoma, multifocal, ulceration
