Verrucous pagetoid reticulosis: A case report

Erol Koc, Mustafa Tunca, Didem Dincer, Ercan Arca, Osman Kose, Murat Demiriz.

Abstract
Pagetoid reticulosis, also known as Woringer Kolopp disease, is an exceedingly rare variant of mycosis fungoides with good prognosis that primarily affects middle-aged males. We describe here a 22-year-old male patient with an erythematous, scaly, verrucous plaque on his left leg. Histopathological and immunohistochemical analyses confirmed the diagnosis. We successfully treated the patient with surgical excision and there was no recurrence in 2 years. To our knowledge this is the first case of PR reported in the literature that presents with verrucous lesions.
