Although there has been an increasing number of cases reported of cutaneous papillomatosis during the last decade, all except one have been of the confluent and reticulated type. The first case of the nummular and confluent type was reported by Gougerot and Carteaud in 1930.1,2 There had been no other cases in the literature until 1958 when Montgomery and Young3 reported the first case in the United States.
We would like to present a new case of nummular and confluent papillomatosis.
