Successful Treatment of a Keratoacanthoma in a Young Patient with the
Application of Topical 5% Imiquimod Cream
Keratoacanthomas (KA) are epithelial tumors that present as rapidly
evolving nodules with a central hyperkeratotic plug, and occasionally
show signs of spontaneous regression. A 21-years-old patient strongly
refused the diagnostic biopsy and insisted on a non surgical treatment.
He was successfully treated with imiquimod 5% cream.
