Urachal duct remnant-like umbilical clear cell acanthoma in an infant: an unusual presentation and pitfall in clinical practice.
Int J Dermatol. 2007 Jun; 46(6):615-8.IJ

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Although an umbilical nodule is common in neonates and young infants, an umbilical nodule of poor therapeutic response will increase the likelihood of other uncommon etiology. Clear cell acanthoma (CCA) has never been described as an oozing umbilical nodule on infants.

METHODS

To present a case of CCA which occurred on an 8-month-old female infant presenting with one weeping nodule on the umbilicus since early neonate. The lesion underwent skin biopsy and subsequent hematoxylin-eosin and periodic acid-Schiff staining.

RESULT

Three courses of liquid nitrogen cryosurgery were performed after the diagnosis of CCA was confirmed. The lesion resolved rapidly.

CONCLUSION

This report presents the first and youngest case of umbilical CCA in the English literature. This case supports the inflammatory dermatosic nature of CCA.
