Subungual Molluscum Contagiosum: A Rare Presentation
MetadataShow full item record
Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a self-limiting viral infectious cutaneous disease usually characterized by pinkish skin color and round umbilicated papules varying in size and shape. MC can affect any region, but the lower abdomen, thighs, genitals, and perianal area are the sites most commonly involved. Atypical localizations of the lesions may be difficult to diagnose. We report a case of subungual MC with dermoscopic features in a young male. © 2019 S. Karger AG, Basel.
