Confluent and reticulated papillomatosis characterized by hyperkeratotic-pigmented papules is a rare dermatosis, which tends to settle in seborrheic areas. Some cutaneous disorders share the same features. Herein, we report a 51-year-old man with confluent and reticulated papillomatosis who was followed up as tinea versicolor which was unresponsive to treatment for six months. Confluent and reticulated papillomatosis should be kept in mind in patients with localized reticular pigmentation involving the upper trunk and neck.

Keywords: Confluent and reticulated papillomatosis, tinea versicolor, tetracycline, mupirocin

Hiperkeratotik pigmentli papüller ile karakterize konfluent ve retiküle papillomatozis, seboreik bölgelerde yerleşme eğiliminde olan nadir bir hastalıktır. Bazı deri hastalıkları onunla bazı klinik özelliklerini paylaşır. Bu yazıda, altı aylık tedaviye yanıtsız tinea versikolor olarak takip edilen konfluent retiküle papillomatozisli 51 yaşında bir erkek hasta sunuldu. Konfluent ve retiküle papillomatozis vücudun üst kısmında ve boyunda lokalize retiküler pigmentasyon olan hastalarda akılda tutulmalıdır

Anahtar Kelimeler: Konfluent retiküle papillomatozis, tinea versikolor, tetrasiklin, mupirosin
