Seborrheic keratosis is one of the most common skin tumors. Because this tumor is benign, treatment is not mandatory. However, the lesions are often removed especially for cosmetic reasons. Despite its frequency, many aspects of seborrheic keratosis remain elusive. In the last years new molecular genetic insights into seborrheic keratoses have been gained. The current knowledge about seborrheic keratosis with respect to epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy is summarized. 
Seborrheic Keratoses of the Penis: About a Rare Case
Seborrheic keratoses are very common benign epidermal tumors that includes several aetiological factors and the participation of human papilloma virus (HPV) is being discussed.
Dermoscopy of inflamed seborrheic keratosis: A great mimic of malignancy
Clinical and dermoscopic recognition of seborrheic keratoses (SKs) is often straightforward, and biopsy might not be required. However, inflamed SKs (iSKs) can pose a diagnostic challenge.
Giant seborrheic keratosis of the face – an unusual presentation
A case of an unusually large seborrheic keratosis on the face is reported, highlighting its clinical relevance and surgical management.
Two cases of seborrheic keratosis of the external ear canal: involvement of PIK3CA and FGFR3 genes
Etiological risk factors involved in SK such as exposure to human papillomavirus (HPV) and ultraviolet (UV) light are established but must still be confirmed.
Giant seborrheic keratoses on penis.
It is suggested that HPVs can be considered as etiologic factor in creation of seborrheic keratosis, which is very common on sun-exposed skin, but they are rare in the genital area, such as on the shaft of penis.
Clinical analysis of seborrheic keratoses in the ear: a retrospective study and literature review
Otolaryngologists should consider a complete removal and histological examination of seborrheic keratoses, which are benign skin tumors; however, the lesions can recur after removal.
Bowenoid transformation in seborrheic keratosis: A retrospective analysis of 429 patients
Generally, although the association between seborrheic keratosis and skin malignancy appears to be accidental, it must always be in mind that histopathologic examination of all seborRheic Keratosis should be considered, especially when sebor rheickeratosis has atypical clinical manifestations.
Common Adult Skin and Soft Tissue Lesions.
Describing epidermal/dermal, infectious, pigmented, and malignant cutaneous lesions that are commonly encountered in practice include the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical course, and management options for each type of lesion.
Basaloid tumors arising from seborrheic keratosis: Malignant basal cell carcinoma or benign basaloid follicular hamartomatous proliferation?
Basaloid tumors arising from seborrheic keratosis (SK) that resembled basal cell carcinoma (BCC) were infrequently observed in our patients. They also exhibited morphologic features similar to those
Treatment of seborrheic keratosis in bilateral external auditory canal using fiber CO2 laser.
A 33-year-old female patient with lesions of bilateral external auditory canals who was treated using fiber CO2 laser without canaloplasty with confirmed diagnosis of irritated type seborrheic keratosis, which is rare in external auditory canal.
