Abstract

A case of multiple keratoacanthomata affecting both the skin and conjunctiva is reported. Although the patient was carefully studied on several occasions, the correct diagnosis was long delayed for the following reasons: (1) a history of pulmonary tuberculosis, (2) the disparity between the microscopic findings in solitary keratoacanthoma and those in some cases of multiple keratoacanthomata, (3) the unusual and heretofore unreported coexistence of cutaneous and conjunctival lesions.
