• We report herein a case of molluscum contagiosum that healed spontaneously. The molluscum papules did not involute simultaneously, but became inflamed and disappeared individually over a period of months. Biopsy specimens were taken at various stages of inflammation and regression. The histopathology was consistent with a cell-mediated rejection reaction.
