Diagnostic Considerations

Also consider the following [17, 18] :

  • Verrucae vulgaris [19]
  • Periungual fibromas (Koenen tumors) [8]
  • Fibroma
  • Superficial acral fibromyxoma
  • Aggressive digital papillary adenocarcinoma [21]

Patients who have multiple acquired digital fibrokeratoma, especially on several digits, need to be evaluated for the other stigmata that characterize tuberosis sclerosis. [22]
