“…In the control group of dermatofibromas, similar intense CD117 staining of the fibrohistiocytic proliferation and the overlying epidermis was noted, with no appreciable quantitative or qualitative staining difference compared with our dermatofibromas with melanocytic lesions. 5 and epidermolytic hyperkeratosis 6 have also been described as coincidental findings. Basaloid proliferations overlying dermatofibromas may occur and these range from basal cell hyperplasia with follicular differentiation to well-developed basal cell carcinomas.…”

“…Ackerman noted the occurrence of focal acantholytic dyskeratosis overlying a dermatofibroma in a patient with no other evidence of an acantholytic dermatosis (7). In addition, he has reported instances in which epidermolytic hyperkeratosis, seborrheic keratosis-like, and pale cell acanthoma-like changes occurred in the epidermis above a dermatofibroma (8).…”

“…1 These variants may be observed not only in the classical dermatoses that coined the term but also in various other skin diseases such as Grover's disease, acantholytic acanthoma, 2 warty dyskeratoma, 3 linear epidermal naevus, 4 naevus corniculatus, 5 oral focal dyskeratosis 6 and acantholytic dermatosis localized to the vulvocrural area. 7 All patterns of acantholysis may also occur as an incidental histopathological finding, remaining subclinical in many inflammatory and neoplastic skin diseases, for example: leucocytoclastic vasculitis, 1 pityriasis rosea, chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis, 8 dermatofibroma, 9 basal cell carcinoma 1 and also in acral lentiginous malignant melanoma. 10 The acantholytic dyskeratotic pattern was also observed in association with seborrhoeic keratosis, different naevi and above scars.…”
