Two rare forms of keratoacanthoma are presented. The first case was the eruptive type in which thousands of lesions have continued to form in spite of all therapy. The second case is of the multiple type with concomitant discoid lupus erythematosis which is demonstrated in the same histological section. This case has responded to antimetabolites, antimalarials, and intralesional steroids. Clinical photographs and histological sections are presented.
