[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Granular parakeratosis was originally described as a dermatosis confined to the axillae that histopathologically shows characteristic findings in the cornified layer consisting of parakeratotic corneocytes housing keratohyaline granules. Since the original description of this entity, non-intertriginous examples and even incidental foci of granular parakeratotic corneocytes in association with other dermatoses have been recognized. This report details the findings of a previously unreported entity that we are naming granular parakeratotic acanthoma, which is fundamentally akin to acantholytic dyskeratotic acanthoma and epidermolytic acanthoma (ie, a solitary keratosis that histopathologically displays features indicated in its name).

Biopsies of this process revealed dermatophytosis and concurrent granular parakeratosis. This patient's eruption resolved completely with antifungal therapy suggesting that the fungal organisms caused the granular parakeratosis.
