Queratoacantoma

Los queratoacantomas son protuberancias (pápulas o nódulos) en forma de domo, rojas (eritematosas) y con cráteres centrales, que muestran un crecimiento rápido y ocasionalmente desaparecen (involucionan) en forma espontánea. El médico por lo general los trata para prevenir una mayor destrucción del tejido subyacente. Los queratoacantomas son muy parecidos al carcinoma de células escamosas.Queratoacantoma
