OCTAVIO-SANCHEZ, Raquel  and  FAURA-BERRUGA, Cristina. Acquired digital fibrokeratoma: a case report. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.1, pp.28-31. ISSN 2386-8201.

The differential diagnosis of dermatological lesions is a great challenge in primary care daily consultations. An example of this is digital lesions, whose most frequent etiology is verruca vulgaris, which are those caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). However, there are other causes, like acquired digital fibrokeratoma, that must be taken into account due to its relative frequency. This is a fibrous and benign tumor whose diagnosis is based on its histology and whose treatment consists only in complete excision.
