A Solitary Soft Fibroma-Like Polypoid Mucinosis: Report of an Unusual Case
Cutaneous mucinosis can be a primary or secondary reaction, as seen in connective tissue diseases, lupus erythematosus, metabolic diseases, paraproteinemias, and even malignant lymphomas. Objective.
Focal cutaneous mucinosis usually arises as a result of the dysfunction of fibroblasts in a local area. It may arrive from various mechanical stimulations. Methods.
We presented an unusual heretofore unreported case of a polypoid mucinosis. Conclusion.
The local mucin deposition in this patient was considered as a secondary change from frequent friction by clothes.
