Seborrheic Hyperkeratosis

by Dr. Yiannis Neofytou

Seborrheic hyperkeratosis is the most common benign skin lesion in the elderly. Seborrheic hyperkeratosis has a variety of clinical manifestations and develops from the proliferation of epidermal cells. No specific causal factors have been identified for their development. Seborrheic hyperkeratosis usually has no symptoms, but can be annoying. The lesions may itch and rub or cling to clothing, causing irritation. Seborrheic hyperkeratosis can be easily removed. The usual reason for removing seborrheic hyperkeratosis is the patient’s desire to get rid of it. Sometimes the doctor may recommend its removal due to uncertainty about the correct diagnosis.
