We report on a negroid male suffering from porokeratosis of the scrotum. Porokeratosis in the genital area is rare, as is its occurrence in negroid people. In our patient, we found an asymptomatic non-HIV associated immunosuppression. In this case, the disease might be called porokeratosis of Mibelli. The diagnosis should be suspected in patients not belonging to one of the classical at-risk ethnical groups if the skin lesions seem typical.

Abstract

We report on a negroid male suffering from porokeratosis of the scrotum. Porokeratosis in the genital area is rare, as is its occurrence in negroid people. In our patient, we found an asymptomatic non-HIV associated immunosuppression. In this case, the disease might be called porokeratosis of Mibelli. The diagnosis should be suspected in patients not belonging to one of the classical at-risk ethnical groups if the skin lesions seem typical.
