Diagnostic Considerations

Also consider the following:

  • Verrucae vulgaris [16]
  • Periungual fibromas (Koenen tumors) [7]
  • Fibroma
  • Superficial acral fibromyxoma
  • Aggressive digital papillary adenocarcinoma [18]

Patients who have multiple acquired digital fibrokeratoma, especially on several digits, need to be evaluated for the other stigmata that characterize tuberosis sclerosis. [19]
