Epidermolytic acanthoma is an uncommon benign tumor characterized histologically by epidermolytic hyperkeratosis. Clinically, the tumor resembles a verruca or seborrheic keratosis and may occur in either isolated or disseminated forms. Herein, we present a case of a 46-year-old male who developed multiple seborrheic keratosis or verruca like papules on his trunk which showed epidermolytic hyperkeratosis upon microscopic examination. Following clinical and histological findings, the patient was diagnosed as having disseminated epidermolytic acanthoma.
