Abstract

Background. Inverted follicular keratosis (IFK) is a benign cutaneous neoplasia in which a possible viral origin has been suggested. Methods. The presence of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) have been searched by Immunocytochemical and Polymerase chain reaction techniques in a series of IFK. Results. All the examined cases of IFK showed no evidence of HPV antigen. Conclusions. According of this study IFK is not a HPV related lesion but an adnexal tumor without a casual relationship with infection.
