Abstract: Molluscum contagiosum is a disease caused by a poxvirus. It is more prevalent in children up to 5 years of age. There is a second peak of incidence in young adults. In order to examine its ultrastructure, three lesions were curetted without disruption, cut transversely with a scalpel, and routinely processed for scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The oval structure of molluscum contagiosum could be easily identified. In its core, there was a central umbilication and just below this depression, there was a ker… Show more

“…La masa central de células córneas infectadas por el virus conforma la umbilicación central característica del MC 3 . La presencia de un túnel queratinizado debajo de esta umbilicación sugiere que el origen de la proliferación celular que se observa en el MC son las células epiteliales de la vaina radicular externa del folículo piloso 13 .…”

“…Viral proliferation then continues in mitotically active keratinocytes and expands apically, giving rise to distinct dome-shaped papules called molluscum bodies. Viral dissemination occurs as viral particles exit via a keratinized tunnel at the umbilicated center of the lesion ( 67 ).…”
