EtiopathogenesisThis section has been translated automatically.
In elderly patients, associations with diabetes mellitus and chronic renal insufficiency have been described, as well as triggering by dialysis. However, these cases are probably attributable to"reactive perforating collagenosis"!
ManifestationThis section has been translated automatically.
First manifestation in childhood or younger adulthood. Gynecotropy(?).
LocalizationThis section has been translated automatically.
Clinical featuresThis section has been translated automatically.
Asymptomatic, isolated, occasionally grouped, follicular, yellowish to brown-red, sometimes swollen horn nodules. Confluence with larger polycyclic, hyperkeratotic plaques is possible. Easily detachable horny cones, which leave a bowl-shaped crater when detached. Healing with superficially pigmented scars. No itching. The Koebner phenomenon is negative.

Internal therapyThis section has been translated automatically.
A proven effective therapy is not known: an experiment with acitretin (neotigason) can be performed, first for about 6 weeks in high doses of 0.5-1 mg/kg bw/day, then reduction to maintenance dose of 0.25-0.5 mg/kg bw/day. Successful therapy attempts with allopurinol (e.g. Zyloric) are described on the basis of casuistics (level of evidence IV).
