Seborrheic Keratosis

  • Sandra Ronger Savle


Seborrheic keratosis, a benign growth lesion, is a very common cutaneous lesion encountered in white races in the fourth and fifth decade. They usually form warty proliferations that appear pasted onto the surface, are usually pigmented, and may have a waxy appearance owing to extruded keratin (Fig. 40.1).
