Queratoacantoma

Los queratoacantomas son protuberancias en forma de cúpula (pápulas o nódulos) rojos (eritematosos) de rápido crecimiento y con cráteres centrales. En ocasiones desaparecen de manera espontánea (involución), pero con frecuencia son tratados para evitar la futura destrucción del tejido subyacente o para evitar comprometerlo. Debido a su parecido con el cáncer escamocelular, a menudo causan preocupación.Queratoacantoma
