“…Unlike other forms, DSAP does not appear to have more risk of malignant change than other types [8]. It can sometimes coexist with other forms of porokeratosis (Mibelli type, linear porokeratosis, porokeratosis palmaris et plantaris disseminata and punctate porokeratosis) [9]. There is good evidence that ultraviolet light can precipitate the development of new lesions or exacerbate pre-existing lesions [5].…”

“…Clinical diagnosis is often possible because of the multiple umbilicated lesions; however, scrapings of the lesion, rare excision in cases of unrecognized etiology, or cytology specimens may arrive in the pathology laboratory and be diagnostic [10]. Some unusual dermatologic conditions that have been reported in the mons have included localized epidermolytic hyperkeratosis [11], keratosis lichenoides chronica [12], and superficial actinic porokeratosis [13]. Epidermolytic hyperkeratosis can be a diffuse congenital disorder but may be localized, with a few cases involving the female genitalia.…”

“…A case of superficial actinic porokeratosis was reported in a 73-year-old woman, involving the mons and other body sites. Porokeratosis is a lesion with atrophic patches rimmed by keratin, with a distinct histology [13]. Calcinosis cutis, a condition of unknown etiology where calcium is deposited in the skin, has occurred in the mons [15].…”
