ABSTRACT: The histological picture of molluscum contagiosum (MC) is well known: the epidermis grows down into the dermis as multiple, closely packed pear-shaped lobules. The epithelial cells of the outermost layers and the horny layer display typical molluscum bodies. In this paper, we describe an unusual case of MC in a cystic lesion. This lesion was probably due to localisation of the MC virus in the ostium of the pilar infundibulum, followed by obstruction and formation of an inclusion cyst.Journal of Cutaneous Pathology 05/1985; 12(2):163-5. · 1.77 Impact Factor
