Epidermal nevus affecting foot
A 22 year old man presented with a history of linear hyperkeratotic lesion on the right foot since age 7 yrs. It hurts his foot when he wear his shoes.
Examination of the right foot showed a localised hyperkeratotic plaque extending linearly to the medial malleolus. It was not tender or inflamed. My impression is that of an epidemal nevus. Appreciate your thoughts on diagnosis and treatment options.
