Abstract

SUMMARY.— Thirty-two cases are reported of the tumour recently described as acquired digital fibrokeratoma.

The histological features are described in detail and the differentiation from other superficially similar tumours is emphasized. The possible histogenesis is discussed.

Since not all such lesions are on the digits the term acquired fibrokeratoma is suggested as appropriate.
