Porokeratosis


Definition

A constellation of conditions that assumes various forms clinically but whose most dependable denominator in common (the exception being the punctate manifestation) is a keratotic ring around a central zone of atrophy, e.g., in a congenital expression that takes the form of a plaque (Mibelli), in a congenital manifestation in which lesions are in linear array (segmental), in an acquired type induced by ultraviolet light (disseminated superficial actinic), and in an acquired form in which lesions are not in photodistribution (disseminated superficial).
