Although confluent and reticulated papillomatosis as described by Gougerot and Carteaud is an entity familiar to most American dermatologists, it is not generally known that these same authors also reported two other varieties of papillomatoses. We are reporting a case that we believe meets the diagnostic criteria for one of these varieties (ie, punctate, pigmented verrucous papillomatosis) and that, heretofore, has not been reported, to our knowledge, in the English literature.
