Abstract

Epidermodisplasia verrusiformis (Lewandowsky Lutz syndrome) is a rare, autosomal recessive genodermatosis characterized by a defect in cellular immunity and increased susceptibility to Human Papillomavirus infection. Typical clinical findings include pityriasis versicolor-like macules, flat wart-like papules, psoriasiform red papules, and pigmented keratotic lesions resembling seborrheic keratosis. Cutaneous malignancies can develop on sun-exposed regions.
