A rare case of multiple clear cell acanthoma with a relatively rapid development of the lower legs.

Abstract

Clear cell acanthoma, firstly described by Degos as "an epidermal tumor with a particular aspect", although quite a rare lesion, raised an important interest because it may be easily confused with other dermatologic lesions, in the absence of a histopathological examination. Its clinical aspect is of a solitary nodule, with a red-brown varying color, with a size of 3 mm to 2 mm, sometimes covered with a thin scall. We present a case of a multiple rare cell acanthoma (seven nodular formations), having a rapid development (about two months) diagnosed in a 71-year-old patient within the lower 1/3 of the right shin.
